I'm just neurotic


Posted at 11 Dec 2008 11:02:13 AM

Week 2 at work - going well. Not much to do yet, but I'm hanging out and screwing around with various linux installations (go free VMware!)

In other news, it's freezing in this damn office! >:o

Dan and I sketched out a design for the most awesome kitchen spice cabinet I have ever seen in my life last night. We caught a glimpse of something similar on some home-renovation commercial, Lowe's or somebody, and Dan said "What, you like that? I can do better than that, here, where's a sketchpad?" *grin* And he could!

We've been vaguely talking about houses, in that way you do when you get the free real estate magazines from outside grocery stores and such. When our lease is up here, if we can, we'll probably move - and there's no reason I can think of now why we shouldn't be able to. We'll take the year as it comes, and see where we are when it's up.

I'll tell you what I am looking forward to, though - having a kitten and a puppy, having a real garden, having lots of kitchen space, and generally getting settled in for a little while at least.

Hey, my pepper plants finally have blossoms and peppers on them! They're late bloomers or something, and the climate change was probably a severe shock to their systems - I know it was to mine, hell. I've been sick 2 weeks out of 4 since I got here >_>

I'm still kind of at this weird loss about cooking... I don't know why, whether I'm putting too much pressure on myself to be perfect right off the bat, or maybe I'm just in a slump, but I don't feel like anything I make is really "right" lately. It's very odd... a little bit worrying, to be honest. I'm second-guessing everything, making things which are more complicated than I would probably normally have made, and thinking about whatever I'm going to make all damn day. If I wasn't obsessing about it all day, it probably wouldn't have occurred to me to write it here, if that makes any kind of sense.

I just ... ok, bear with me here. I gravitate pretty heavily toward carbs - pasta and breads. So for me, I'm ecstatic with penne ala vodka with crusty buttered bread for dinner. But then I think about that, and then I realize it has no meat in it, and how can anyone who isn't me be happy with just pasta for dinner? Whenever we've had dinner at Dan's parents' place, they seem to do a main protein, and -acres- of side dishes, a couple of veggies and applesauce and salad. Even though I realize that they don't exactly put major thought into whether or not everything is perfectly coordinated - it's more like, "hey, we have broccoli, let's put that out!" - I still stress over whether or not I can do the same thing.

Really, I'm just neurotic. But it's distracting me.

But hey, now I have stuff to do for work, and the cable guy's coming to fix our shitty connection between 5 and 7 tonight, so I have to leave early.

Strange but true. Your resource is expensive. At least it could be sold for good money on its auction!....
