January 6, 2003 – lunchtime

Lunchtime! Munching on a Subway 6″ turkey breast sandwich with no cheese and just vinegar for dressing. Add in a Diet Pepsi and a bag of WOW chips and I’m good to go. I don’t usually eat WOW chips (they’re the kind with Olestra which pushes the fat right through your bod) but today I’m super hungry. I’m SO hungry that I’ve finished the whole meal and am just as hungry as I was before I started. (sigh) It’s gonna be a tough day.

Yesterday my ABS (anti-lock brake system) was engaged for the first time during the snowstorm. I felt the brake pedal “clicking” up and down as I pressed on it to stop. Yours truly had NO clue what was going on until Mom told me it was the ABS. If you’re like me and have no idea how ABS work, then stop by this link. If you’re like me, you’ll have to read it a few times.

I have a minute to wait for one of my Hot Jobs to convert to .pdf so I’ll do this morning’s entry.

Wt: 145.3 (um…going in wrong direction here)
Mood: HUNGRY!

What a perfect snow! The roads are clear and dry, but the snow clings to everything else. It makes everything look postcard-perfect. We’re supposed to get perhaps another inch this afternoon. With my new blue snowjacket, I’m prepared. Oh yeah, I know wear snowboots in to work and change into my real shoes when I get here. File that under “More signs I’m getting old.”

Work docket: Hot Jobs, work on new “About Us” section, and update our “Keeping the Faith” section.

Lunch: Subway. I got back on the exercise track last week…now I have to start up with the ‘better eating’ portion of my plan.

Afternoon plans: I’ll stop at Genuardi’s on the way home, as I don’t think another day with a donut-dinner will be very beneficial to me.

Took some photos of Misty and Charlie last night, because they were sitting next to each other on the chaise. It took about 7 shots before I got them both with their eyes open and facing forward.

Comments like the above is a reason why Robert Wood, a sociology professor at Rutgers-Camden says that blogging will likely remain a fad. That article amazes me in that it fails to mention either Andrew Sullivan, Mickey Kaus, or Meg Hourihan. Then again, it’s a GNS story. (evil smile)

Hey! My .pdf’s done…back to work!

January 5 2003 – evening

It’s snowing! We’ve got snow!

Mom and I went out this afternoon to have lunch at Panera (French Onion soup) and then to shop at Echelon Mall, which is falling apart quickly. It lost anchor store number 4, Sears, last year. Anchor store #2, JCPenney, is closing later this month. That’s sad for me personally — I worked there for almost 4 years thru college and although they had odd management practices I have many good memories of my coworkers and customers. Most of the ‘ name’ stores inside are closing, like Fashion Bug, Petite Sophisticate, and Hallmark. The stores that are filling them are no-name Mom and Pop joints selling cheap no-name fashions and kitchy knickknacks. Which is fine to have, but too many of those stores will bring the mall down.

Anyhoo, I went to Strawbridge’s and got a down jacket for 50% off plus an additional 10% off. I think it came to $67.00 total. And it’s warm!! Also picked up some curtains for my middle (now dining) room. Unfortunately, I didn’t get to Genuardi’s to food shop because of the snow…which is at 3 inches and counting. It doesn’t take much to dissuade me from food shopping. So I drove through Dunkin’ Donuts and we had donuts for dinner. (groan) At least the Apple ones have apples in them…you know…fruit?

OK…I know…no excuse. I also had a Vanilla Chai drink — mmmmmmmm.

I took a few photos and will most probably post them to the site tonight. Now I’m nailing all of my kitch back onto the middle (now dining) room walls. I’m frightening when I wield a hammer. 🙂
