The Post That Almost Wasn't

I wasn’t going to blog today. I don’t have anything to say and I don’t like blogging just to get in some self-imposed required amount of posts. I do have some planned posts coming up but they’ll take longer to write than my lunch break, so they’ll have to wait.

But then something awesome happened.

Today at work, I was informed that I’ll be moving off my project and on to another for 3 months (or more) starting next Friday. I may move back to my current project after that time. But I may not.

I’ve been extremely unhappy at work for awhile now because I feel that I’m unchallenged and my skills are underused.

Watch your mouth.

I love my work place but I hate the project I’m on. The higher ups are aware of this but our project selection is limited. So, I’m left trying to appreciate that I have a job in the first place and that a lot of people would kill to have an unchallenging job if it meant they could pay the bills.

So, that’s my news. I’m so happy and I’m looking forward to enjoying my job again. Even if I’m back on the same project I’m currently on at the end of the 3 months, that will be 3 months I won’t be miserable 9 hours a day. And maybe by then, an even better project will come along.

What are you looking forward to? (Tomorrow we’re going to see Evil Dead: The Musical. Yes, that exists. Yes, I’m willing to pay for it. And yes, I will be seated in the “Splatter zone.”)

Are you tired of pictures of my bunny? (Say no.)

BBQs and Easter Baskets

First, I’d like to say thanks to all of you (and especially David for the over-share) who told me your crazy eating habits in the comments yesterday. You officially make me and Danielle’s Twix eating habit normal. 🙂

Remember how I mentioned that my workplace likes to fatten people up? Well, we had catering from Four Rivers in Winter Park for lunch today. Four Rivers is a BBQ joint that always has a line out into the street and everyone in the world (or at least on my Facebook page) swears by.

You see no one at the tables eating because I’m pretty much at the front of the line.

 

The eats.

My thoughts.

There are some who feel that I have spoken blasphemy against Four Rivers since trying the food today. They insist that catering is not the best representation of their food and that I need to try the Krispy Kreme bread pudding.

I will take that challenge. They had me at “Krispy.” 🙂

At the end of the buffet line was a table where everyone chose an Easter egg. Then we got the prize written on the paper inside the egg. That’s when my day got a WHOLE lot better.

A dodgeball and sidewalk chalk in an Easter basket?

“If you can dodge a wrench, you can dodge a ball!”

I didn’t even realize what was behind the basket until I got back to my desk.

Peeps!

This basket was MEANT for me. ❤ ❤

And for those of you who are going to ask, no I do not have two purses. The polka-dotted one is an insulated lunch bag.

What is your favorite seasonal candy? (I LOVE Peeps but I can destroy an army of candy corn/candy pumpkins too.)
