So I somehow ended up working about 13 hours today.
I wasn't here for two days at the beginning of the week, and one day at the end of last week. Having just picked up two paychecks where I somehow only have 32 hours, the lack of 8 hours fucking *hurts*. The last two days there hasn't been enough to do to justify staying, and I've been exhausted.
Today I was just as exhausted (woke up with 15 minutes to get ready and to work becuase I am 'second wind at 10 pm' girl this week), but I've got the weekend off, so what the hell.
But not having eaten (yes, I know how bad that is. But I didn't plan ahead and I'm too broke to justify taking out cash for food), I really started to drag after 4 o'clock. So what should have taken a much shorter amount of time ended up taking another 3 hours. Then I got into a conversation with a guy in the backroom about fucked up relationships while I was organizing things so they'd make sense to the people who'll come in to see things in the middle of being done.
Apparently he thinks he's had fucked up relationships.
I'll let ya know... he has no earthly idea of what he speaks.
Basically what I got out of it was that he has problems letting go of chicks he dated as a teenager.

So, taking out the lunch period and adding in the time spent talking in the backroom, I worked from 6am to just about 7pm on an hour sleep and no food.
The upshot of all of which is that I really wish there was a Papaya King around here because I've been wanting another hot dog all day. Yep. You read that correctly. I'm massively craving a hot dog. Actually, I'm just craving all sorts of meaty foodstuffs.
I could deal with some Five Guys right now too.
Or a philly cheese from King Chef.
Right now I want a huge stack of pancakes. And huevos rancheros. And black eyed peas and rice. And grits.
and veggie rolls with a LOT of wasabi.
and pot stickers.
And those steamed chilled basil chicken spring rolls from that Thai place.
And Bamee Tso Tofu.

And an avacado.

ooh yeah, baby.
Karl took me there last week. I have to say that it's probably the best burger I've ever had. And that's in an honest "good burger" way, not a snarky "icky beef" way.

Sorry, all I've got is chicken stuff. Chicken lumps sauteed with a little rosemary and celery salt, home-made alfredo sauce with about half cream and half milk and some obligatory parmesan (not too much, didn't want to overpower the chicken), all over some shell pasta that's just *this* much beyond perfect al dente. Not bad, for something cooked while four children played tag in around and through the kitchen. Oh, and peas.... mmm, peas.

I actually ended up eating toasted cheese tortellini with a weird little pink sauce made with lots of basil and a roasted red pepper puree.

Wish I had a gas stove. I would love to set some peppers on fire.

Saying that actually makes me glad that you live across the country... keep those pepper fumes aWAY.

I don't like red pepper or green pepper really. I'll tolerate them, but in general I think they're pretty foul.
However, roasted red pepper is really good in a variety of things. And there's no better way to prepare it than freshly. Not out of a jar.

Heh.. and I've noticed that just about anytime we start talking about food you end up horrified and reviled by the thought of at least *one* *thing* I bring up.

Last time it was the "kill you just from being in the room with them" cucumbers.
