Could it be? Spaetzles and potato pancakes! Dining via German fastfood – Hallo Berlin! $4.50 mugs of German beer! I had the German fries, green bean and cucumber salad, sour kraut, and cabbage with Kielbasa and Andoille Cheese sausage. DELICIOUS!

Fruit salad with mango, papaya, pineapple, strawberries, and bananas. A parsley, carrot, celery, beets, apple, and pineapple drink.

For lunch today, I felt like salmon nigiri sushi. I went to the non-Japanese lunch box places and decided against raw fish. Then, I decided that it was a good idea to have some brown rice rolls. The box came with 4 pieces of 3 different kinds of rolls. One was eel avocado with teriyaki sauce, second was imitation crab with avocado, and the third was shrimp and avocade in spicy sauce.

It was surprisingly palpable, but it didn’t leave any sort of satiation. Yes, I feel a little bloated and I am definitely full. However, it isn’t an enjoyable feeling.


A while ago, my VP caught me eating a second lunch.

“Didn’t you just eat around noon?”

Me – It’s a second lunch, LEAVE ME ALONE!

“Ack. No judgment…”


Today I just had a delightful lunch of a LARGE vegetarian chilli and small thing of asparagus, cranberry chutney, and Gorgonzola wrapped in smoked turkey. Then my CEO walks in to ask my cubicle section what they want from the menu, he’s buying.

Sigh. And I did the unthinkable… and turned him down. : ( Why didn’t he tell us before I went out to buy lunch?

I am trying to be a better eater.

I found out today that North Dakota’s House of Representatives passed a bill outlawing abortions.

The House voted 51-41 this afternoon to declare that a fertilized egg has all the rights of any person.

That means a fetus could not be legally aborted without the procedure being considered murder.

They had to stipulate, according to Roe vs. Wade, that life starts from the point of cell division in the uterus when a sperm enters the egg.

Anyone else horrified?

An important function of my department is the messages that are deployed on Thursday. This in a large part requires my work… and thus has become a source for some anxiety. This is normal, however, the part that actually frustrates me is that things that are supposedly set, change.

They change on Wednesday.

So, I have almost completely given up hope of finishing ahead of schedule.

Today isn’t so bad and there SHOULDN’T BE ANYTHING THAT CHANGES. The thing is, I don’t know if that means anything. ; )

Of course, cake during the course of the day changes the whole dynamic. Unfortunately, today is also a 0 day for Umi.

Edit (2:06pm): It wasn’t that bad at all, and most of it was done in the morning…
