Holy sack, Nate did the dishes.

He also (basically) cleaned the kitchen and took out the garbage.

Did he read my journal? No. He had company coming over. Still, everything's spic and span, or as close as it gets in this house.

Anyway, today was not a good day at work. Nothing terribly difficult, I just didn't sleep well last night. I awoke around 3:00 AM because my cell phone was ringing. I didn't recognize the number, so I didn't answer it and I didn't get back to sleep for quite awhile. I got another call from a different number just before 6:00. I didn't recognize that one either. Neither caller left a message. This is the first time in more than three years that I've been awakened by my cell phone in the small hours of the morning. I'm not going to start turning it off at night.

We also had a Food Day at work. I'll skip the usual "Food Day is such a stupid name" rant and just summarize by saying that what you call potluck is called Food Day where I work. My plan yesterday was to make hummus, but the kitchen issues last night completely prevented me from doing it. My next plan was to pick up some grapes on the way in to work, but I decided (as I've been doing more and more often recently) that Food Day is not worth the time or money I put into it. The average Food Day costs me more than the most expensive lunch I buy during the week, and there's never anything I want to eat besides what I brought in. The AEG is on maternity leave, so she isn't bringing in anything fresh-baked and delicious. What's the point? I packed some chicken salad, some crackers and some fruit and that was lunch. I worked through what normally would have been my lunchbreak.

Anyway, I wish I had better stories to regale you with, but the kids playing poker downstairs are making me cranky. I think I'll just wish you all a fondue, finish up what I'm doing, and go to bed.

Thanks! My folks and I will have our own this Friday with hot oil and again next Friday with cheese.

Sounds fun. I've never actually had fondue before. I'll have to try it sometime.

Now why did you need pliers and silly putty?

Uh... no reason. I locked that one incorrectly, and then I deleted it because I got the call I was looking for.
Garmonbozia for the soul.
