My pep talk to the garden (small exerpt: Grow dammit, or I will stomp a mudhole in you and walk it dry. I know, I should TOTALLY be a motivational speaker) has apparently worked because on Tuesday? I ate the first radish from the garden. Granted, it was a little bit smaller (still overall good-sized though) and therefore a bit more zesty than I care for, but still, I WAS ABLE TO EAT SOMETHING OUT OF THE GARDEN THAT I GREW WITH MY OWN TWO HANDS. Note to self: Get out of the house more often, STAT.
I am also working on overcoming my fear of talking myself up to total strangers in the interest of growing my portfolio so I can make my ever closer escape from workplace a reality. Believe it or not, this is actually resulting in a more positive outcome than I would have initially guessed. On a totally unrelated and non-biased tangent, you don’t happen to have a website or blog that you need designed and want to pay someone oodles of paper with dollar signs all over them, do you? Why am I asking? Oh, no reason at all. (www.trenabdesigns.com /shameless self-promotion).
Thing the third: Who will win Top Chef next week? Who do I want to win. Now that they’ve weeded out all the psychos, it’s kind of hard to pick who is the most lame. Although, I have to say I am so glad that Dale had to pack his knives last week, because he seriously made me have anger issues and I found myself shouting things at the TV against him because he made me so angry for all the other chefs who had to compete against him. Don’t watch Top Chef? Don’t worry, I’m totally not a complete loon–I just feel a mite strongly about my cooking competition shows. Yet one more endearing personality quirk. No, it isn’t a personality ‘flaw’…quirk just sounds so much more…not most likely to go crazy and end up on the news, don’t you think?.
