My soul died a little bit with this one...

Y'know, there's nothing quite so nice as having people walk into the room where you've just heated up your lunch, and have them say "Wow, something smells good, what is it?" Particularly when it's something that you made yourself. Go me!

Work's...going. There's really only one problem - my ridiculously intense shyness. I start shaking if I have to talk to people in a social or business situation that I don't know very well. I forget to breathe. It's just all around not good. And, with a new job, look what I get to deal with! Yay!

Slowly, though, things are getting a bit better. It helps (TONS) that I can listen to the StephiePod while I'm hear. I forget sometimes how much I NEED music. It helps me relax and think, and so many of my memories are tied up with some kind of music. It does mean I have flashbacks every once in awhile, but nothing too bad. :) Music also helps with the walk to the bus stop, and the bus ride home - for, you see, I don't merely listen to music, I *experience* it. My walk changes, depending on what's playing. I groove, my friends. In public, even! Though it does keep the crazies away, I've noticed.

Anywho...La! Yeah. Not much to write.

Oh, trust me, the thought's crossed my mind. But I know myself - if I worked from home, I'd drive myself NUTS from not going anywhere. But yes, for a long time my goal was to have a job where I could work in my pajamas.

Now, my goal is to have a job where I tell people to be quiet and read a lot. I can't wait to find out if I got into the Library Sciences program at UW...*fingers crossed*

Have you tried Silly Putty? It helps me out a lot during conferences and small group sessions where I'm not taking notes the whole time (I got the idea from Rosemont). But yeah - breathing good. And with the StephiePod you're like the Ellen Degeneres AmEx commercial, right? ;)

Cookie Monster
I think the Cookie Monster being healthy thing is a good thing. I can get you an article if you want, but I think the number is around 40% on childhood obesity these days. If they DIDN'T do something it would be a shame. And teaching kids that cookies are a "sometimes" food rather than an "anytime" food is really ok, if you think about it. Besides, the article says that at the end of the song, CM asks, "Is sometimes NOW?!" and the other person says, "YES!" SO, I think it's a good thing. A less sould-dying thing, if you will. Why? because in the land of plenty, sometimes there IS too much of a good thing.
