1. I've decided that the best way to blog about multiple things with no real link is in lists... like EE.
2. While walking home yesterday from the grocery store I had to take the long route. And yes I said "had to". The reason was because the wind was too bloody strong. My usual route home from the grocery store involves cutting through the Christian Science Park which is a beautiful park with its primary feature being a huge man made pond/fountain in the middle of it. In other words, its an open area in the middle of a city where the wind is usually blocked by buildings. Yesterday being a windy day, I tried to cut across my usual route but I couldn't move. Having the wind against me meant that I was fighting to take every single step and not fall down in the process. Of course, I'm sure being weighed down by groceries didn't help the walking against the wind part but it definitely prevented me from falling when I was walking with the wind. So in the end I decided it'd be faster to just take the long route. The one with buildings.
3. We're starting a week long training case today. What that means is that the new analysts form a pretend case team and take over a case for a week. What that also means is that all my other case work is going to have to be put on a relative hold while I do this. In addition, I still have to give interviews this week so it would be interesting to see how I manage my time this week. I went back to work for 3 hours on Sunday because I knew this week was going to be hectic and I wanted to clear some of my workload. Oh yeah interviews. I'm on the other side of the recruiting process now, and interviewing candidates. I got to do my first interview on last week. I never realized how much work went into interviews on the company side and not just on the student side but it's been an enjoyable and interesting experience so far and definitely would help me out when I actually interview for stuff next.
4. I think cooking for me goes in batches. Like I cook Asian for a couple of weeks then I get tired of it and decide to cook Western. I don't do too well with long elaborate recipes though, I think my speciality is probably making things off the cuff with what ingredients I have and leftovers in the fridge. Example.. last week I made lemon chicken cream pasta from leftover chicken and soup from having made chicken rice. My weekend also included tomato basil cream with italian sausage pasta, and sweet italian sausage cooked with red wine and sweet onions, and steak with soy sauce, garlic, butter and red wine. :-p Basically my menu usually reflects what was on sale at the supermarket.
