It is day 2 of my diet relaunch.

I believe the photos from our User Group meeting last week were the big kicker.

So, it is day 2 and I am hungry and I just ate. :( The cat and I have something in common: we both lick the black plastic bowl thingie for those SmartOnes dinners clean. What I don't get, she'll lick and lick and lick until the thing is stuck under my desk and she can't quite reach it anymore.

Dad made a drive-by visiting this week. He arrived around 6pm on Tuesday and left around 5:30 am on Wednesday. He had just finished his "gut bomb" at Burger King (his terminology) before he got back to my house and so was too full to have any of the brownies I made especially for his birthday.

I'm not sore about it, really, except that we don't usually have brownies or many other types of refined sugar in our house. Otherwise I will eat it all. So now I am stuck with a pan of brownies (of which I've probably ate 1/4 already). Stupid brownies. Stupid, fattening, delicious brownies with chocolate frosting. I told Tim to bring them to work, but I think he forgot and then gave the excuse that he wants to eat them. He better eat the whole damn thing, that skinny bastard. Mom is arriving tomorrow evening, so she better help, too.

I think she yelled at my dad because Wednesday night he called me and apologized for not eating any of the brownies. heh

I have to somehow convince myself to do my homework tonight so I don't have to work on it when Mom is here. This will be a very difficult task as I have started a new crochet project and am a touch excited about it. Plus, I'm a big lazy ass.

My cubicle at work has a view of the Mississippi river out the big wall of windows. So we had a nice view of the crazy tornado storm that passed through yesterday afternoon. All the different offices in the building emptied to the corridor outside ours by the brick stairwell and we watched as the sky went from gray to black to yellow to blue to white. No damage to our building or my house. Trees are uprooted all over the place, though. Our yard just has extra downed branches and that's about it.

I think my best argument for not putting off doing my homework is that by doing my homework, I have a good excuse to continue to put off putting the laundry away. Welcome to my brain.

update: I have the exercises completed but now I have to read two case studies and report on them. Ugh. I am not interested by case studies. They always ask stupid questions at the end that are just odd. Maybe I'll do those tomorrow morning....

Mmmmm brownies. Do you have a good recipe? That you'd be willing to share?

I'd love to look out over a river. I have a busy street (through trees) but it's better than the previous view of the garbage cans in the alley. Also, I have one of about 6 offices with windows in our entire building so I really can't complain.

What are you studying?

Heh. My recipe is "Buy a box of mix; add eggs, water and oil; bake." :) Dad is the kind of guy that doesn't really like things too adventurous.

A view of trees isn't so bad. Here, that would mean getting to watch the occasional crazy squirrel and some birds. At work we sometimes see a blue heron out on the rocks.

I am studying for my Masters in Engineering Management. This is my second semester, so the newness of the whole thing is pretty much gone and the realization that I still have about two years left of it is sinking in. The case studies are for my Project Management class and I swear you could start a drinking game by reading them. Every time they say "methodology," take a shot.

I'm familiar with that one. :)

Hmmm, they may be more shrubs than trees. Not sure I've ever seen wildlife in them. Actually, I have to keep the blinds mostly closed because the air conditioning doesn't seem to work and the direct sunlight makes it unbearably hot in there.
