professional me, self

I felt really happy today.

Work was calmer.  Though I was potentially actually less productive because of it.  But I was forward-thinking and proactive at times.

Burritos are the new pasta (i.e., food I eat every day at Spangler).  Possibly I will go back to salad at some point.

Amy says I am "AWESOME."

Phone call = ♥

Nicki had lunch with us today and asked about our (Katie's and my) travels.  Ranjan came in partway through Katie's story-telling.  Filling him in, Nicki said: "We've heard about Ecuador... and cuy... which is guinea pig... on a stick."  Priceless!

Man, I love P!nk's "U + Ur Hand" so much.

I did the elliptical at the gym again.

I just found out via musesfool on the flist that Madeleine L'Engle died last night.

Link goes to a Publishers Weekly page where L'Engle is a line item below a longer obit about a woman who died August 31, which initially confused me as apparently I have no reading comprehension.

Edit, from friendsfriends: NYT writeup and a 1998 essay on her work which I haven't read. /edit

I went to the Smith website to see if they had a news item up about it yet and learned that Newsweek Magazine names Smith as "Hottest Women's College."
