Delicious (20/365)

The truth is that life is delicious, horrible, charming, frightful, sweet, bitter, and that is everything.
~ Anatole France

Mike made a late-night trip to Culver's tonight. I went with my standard - a strawberry "sundae" (vanilla frozen custard and strawberry topping).

Target (19/365)

Be sure you positively identify your target before you pull the trigger.
~ Tom Flynn

When I was hired as a seasonal employee in November, I was given a generic name tag that had my name on it - printed on a removable label.

Yesterday, I was told that I was being offered a permanent position and they gave me a permanent name tag!

Face-Plant (18/365)

1.  (intransitive) to fall onto one's face, esp when skiing or snowboarding

2.  an act or instance of falling onto one's face

I often find Scooter in this exact sleeping position - what I like to call "ass up - face-plant"

And every time I see him like this? 

I smile!

Cadillac (17/365)

Every soul deserves a shot at a Cadillac, but not everyone should be guaranteed a Cadillac.
~ Ben Stein

(Not my photo, but it is my screenshot!)

On January 7th, Cam totaled the Cavalier that had been with us for 17 years. Today, we went car shopping to attempt to replace the beloved Cavy.

I gave Cam a budget, and he fell in love with this car, and I had to do some negotiating to get it off the lot within that budget ... but it happened!

My 18-year old now drives a Cadillac *shakes my head*

Snacks (16/365)

I am essentially a middle-aged woman who likes making up weird snack combinations and galloping.
~ Miranda Hart

I bought two bags of pre-made Chex Mix a while back. *TIP* Don't ever buy pre-made Chex Mix if you actually like homemade Chex Mix. The first bag was a HUGE disappointment, so I decided to try to enhance the second bag.

Did you know that you can make Chex Mix in a slow cooker? You can!! And I did!!

Name (15/365)

I wish my name was Brian because maybe sometimes people would misspell my name and call me Brain. That's like a free compliment and you don't even gotta be smart to notice it.
~Mitch Hedberg

The name plate for my cubicle was installed today. I figure if they are announcing my space, that means they plan on keeping me, right??

Chinese (14/365)

As long as there's pasta and Chinese food in the world, I'm okay.
~Michael Chang

One of the BEST things about moving out of Podunk and into civilization is that we can now order from GrubHub, which includes a fabulous Chinese restaurant option. Even better? The Chinese restaurant included this calendar (that hangs in my kitchen) with orders placed at the beginning of the year.

And just in case you are wondering? I was born in the Year of the Dragon.
