After 24 years of diligent practice and non-stop training, I know how to tell when I’ve had enough cookies: When there’s none left. And the bag, box or bakery is empty. And there’s chocolatey, sugary, sometimes-snickerdoodley pain in my stomach.

I printed some helpful tips for our fridge at ENTP. Because we like cold drinks on hot days. And in the words of wise investor Warren Buffet, “Someone’s sitting in the shade today because someone planted a tree a long time ago.”
But wait — there’s more! Earlier this year, I made a sign to remind people to take their leftovers home. It hangs on our office door — the last thing you see before you leave.
No need to thank me. Please, keep your seats. Women, refrain from throwing underpants on the stage. I’m just a man trying to help. Okay, maybe I’ll take just one pair of underpants.

It’s difficult to maintain the illusion that I’m a dominant alphamale when I have such a girly-looking drink in front of me. Next time, I’m requesting a cup with skulls, dinosaurs, and big rockets. With a biscotti the shape of a medieval saber.

I’m not sure if all of you know but our daughter Sofia is an IVF baby. Since my hubby’s been gone, well I’m human, I have days where I feel like I’m going to pull my hair out and want to run into the closet and let out a BIG SCREAM from frustration. What Mother doesn’t sometimes…
Today she pointed out the bubbles and yelled, “Bubbles, Momma! Pleaseeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee?” Of course! Great way to entertain her and get her to wear out by trying to pop each bubble! hahaha
And as I watched her face full of joy and heard her beautiful laughter, I
realized remembered how blessed we are to have her here. I can’t even imagine how empty our lives would be if she had never been conceived. I watch her in amazement and pride because she’s the fruit of our lives. I love her. =)

I ran five miles at the gym today (instead of my usual two) in a desperate effort to put off work. Then when I got home, I decided to make chicken noodle soup from scratch (instead of the usual Campbell’s can).
Here are the results:
Well, a girl’s gotta eat, right?

Has anyone ever given pause to eating anything suspiciously labeled as “mystery meat”? I mean, you have no idea what it is, and it often comes in some unearthly shape that can’t possible occur in nature. Things like hot dogs or chicken mcnuggets are culinary pariahs.
Now, keep in mind, I’m not expounding the virtues of the mc-anything diet, but is all that stuff really all that bad? If you think about it, worst case scenario, the mystery meat is made up of the lesser organs of an animal. I don’t know about you, but I find those lesser cuts to be the absolute tastiest parts of the animal.
If you haven’t really tried that stuff, I highly recommend it, just remember to keep an open mind. I suggest starting with something a little tamer, like fried chicken livers, frying it kind of distracts from the smell that some would find somewhat unappetizing. But hey, maybe that “meat” is made of, as Krusty the Clown would say it, “think of smaller, more legs”.
