I’m a Big Girl Now!
Buongiorno! I had a fantastic Tuesday, and I hope you did too! It’s been a biggie!
I woke up at 7 a.m. with my back and hip still a hot mess. For a good half of the day I hobbled around. In heels, mind you. Anyway, I had a delicious cold cereal breakfast:
Charlotte and I traipsed to the office after dropping off our garbage in the dumpster. I started my day by fact-checking an editorial piece about pooping. Or rather, how the writer once had difficulties. I don’t mind– it had me laughing in the a.m. Plus, I’m really a 12-year-old boy, so the mention of poop still makes me laugh. Shortly after reading, an arrival of other tubular, round goodies dumped into the VegNews office:
Soon enough, it was lunch time! More deliciousness:
On the plate: salad with tomato and avocado and green curry with veggies and tofu. I love curry and had no clue before working here that I would!
Shortly after lunch I chatted with a producer of Sims 3! She was so nice and so passionate about her baby! That’s one of the things I adore about journalism: getting to talk to other incredibly passionate people.
I was busy writing and fact-checking when Colleen gave me a present:
Isn’t that insane??? I can hardly believe I have the most bangin’ business cards! I’m handing them out to everyone! I was on cloud 1,289 for the rest of the day! ALSO, a lost puppy stopped by our office until the owners showed up! Papa was sooo cute and was just the dose of puppy loving I needed.
I successfully wrote two news pieces for the website, one news blurb for the magazine, edited two or three stories and had a blast. I also avoided afternoon sweets with an apple, but that apple didn’t do a damn thing for my hunger. It may have made me hungrier.
By the time I got home at 6something (and for those who were wondering, this is an unpaid internship), I was more than ready to eat. First course:
I don’t need no green monster! I eat enormous green salads, yo! In the mix: romaine, spinach, broccoli, mushrooms, roma tomato, chickpeas, Sesame Ginger Soy Vinaigrette and pineapple salsa! Almost as divine as the second course:
Butternut squash curls may be giving cheetahs a run for their spots. I don’t know whether the skin is edible, but I ate it anyway. I’ll let you know how it goes. After dinner I had a couple wannabe Triscuit crackers with TJ’s Tomato Basil Hummus Dip. PIZZA! Is there a difference between hummus and hummus dip? Is it not official hummus? I also may have had a few chunks of a Sticky Fingers brownie. Oh ma gah.
Now I am getting ready to meet up with a fab chiquita for an hour or so of catching up! OH! Thank you ALL for the wonderful recipe suggestions! I can’t believe I left my copy of V’Con in Ohio! Grrr. Now I have plenty to choose from. Thank you! Anyway, I’m off!
Ciao for now,
QUESTION: How much will you spend on shoes? Does it depend on the type?
These days I don’t want to spend any more than $20 on any kind of shoe. I know I have to give this up if I want to get new running shoes. By the way, I took today off from running, and my back/hip/bum feels a ton better! I know I still need to get it checked out, though!
