Just a short update...  
It was a hard day at work with some personnel issues that I don't have the energy to go into right now... The bad news is that being the emotional eater that I am, I drowned my stress in a MASSIVE plate lunch (for those not from Hawaii - it's a large take out plate of food with one scoop of rice, one scoop of mac salad, and an entree - like teriyaki chicken...) It was so huge and I ate it all - and unfortunately felt really ill (and wracked with guilt) shortly thereafter... :P

The good news of the day (and thank goodness that I have some!) is that I received an inquiry for my web design services from someone who filled out the form on my business site. :) YAY! I really need another site to work on... Since completing the VMT site in May, I've been trying to keep busy by filling my web time with re-designs of my other sites, but I've really been hoping to broaden my client base. :)

On a completely unrelated work sidenote, our investment department decided to change its name after 10 years (for apparently no good reason - I should add). And after 10 years of working there and answering the phones one way, I found it almost impossible to switch this past Monday when the change became official. The entire week I think I only answered the phone correctly maybe three times... *SIGH* I guess it's true what they say about old dogs... ;P

And finally, tomorrow night our BIG boss is taking the entire back office out to a nice dinner at Alan Wong's because we had one of the best months in the history of our program in the month of May. We're all really looking forward to it because the food is SO good there - just look at their awesome menu - and it'll be SO nice to just relax together and have a nice dinner and NOT have to think about work. :) Though once again, I've been named everyone's designated driver. ;)

Hope you all have a lovely evening! I'm off to catch up with all of you. Big *HUGS* to you!
 
 
Current Mood: fullSTILL full... :P

Oh! I've never been there, I've always heard really good things about his food. He's famous for that Onaga isn't he? WHOOOOOOHOOO! Good eats!

Awww, don't feel bad about the food. You can work that off anytime. Besides, it's not like you do that every day or something.

Congrats on the webdesigning! See, you are getting good!

I've only been there a couple of times and I've never had the Onaga! I think we're all going to do the 5 course (or some people are doing the 7 course) tasting menu tomorrow night. :) I think the 5 course includes the Onaga. :D I'm very excited! :)

Very true about the plate lunch, I don't do it everyday... but I just realized I'm heading up on a HUGE July 4th weekend of eating! :P My diet will just have to wait! :P

And thanks about the web stuff! I'm really hoping to build up my client base. :)

I've heard it's really good. I've always wanted to eat that. It will be one of my things to do for my birthday someday. *LOL*

The 4th is on Tuesday, so you definitely got a while to watch what you eat then. I think we'll have a small BBQ. I don't know what we'll eat though. *LOL*

A double career woman! *L* I should definitely send ppl your way.

I hope the personnel issues weren't too hard on you. Just one day of a plate lunch will be okay. HUGS!

Have a nice dinner with the big boss!

That's very cool that you may have a new client!

Thanks, Laura!! It all started with the plate lunch, then the 5 course meal... next the BBQ... HELP! :P This week is going to be SO bad for me!! :(

And I'm so excited about the possible client, I hope that things work out!!

Honestly, one scoop of rice, one scoop of mac&cheese, and one entree doesn't sound like a whole lot of food to me...maybe cuz I'm a guy, LOL. I'm just envisioning the "plate lunch" as you described it and I can't imagine it looking that big.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on July 1st, 2006 06:15 pm (UTC)
It was HUGE!! The macaroni salad alone must've had at least 500 calories... Hawaiian plate lunches are meant to be HUGE and not meant to be finnished by just one person, I think... or by one person in more than one sitting. ;)

I'm sorry that it was a hard day at work and I hope the personnel issues were not too bad. I too think that that what you ate does not sound so much but I understand your feeling. I also feel this way every now and then and it's bad then.

I'm very glad to hear about the web news. :) It's great that you may get a new client.

Though once again, I've been named everyone's designated driver. ;)

I know, that happens when one does not drink alcohol. :) Hope you have a nice dinner. The menu looks good to me, at least it made me hungry. But this is okay since it's here time for lunch now.

Much love and big hugs to you, Sheri!

Thankfully I think the personnel issues have been resolved... for the moment... Though unfortunately that plate lunch is going to stay on my thighs and hips for all eternity! ;P

And I totally don't mind always being the designated driver. I'd much rather have everyone ride with me so they can all not worry and drink as much as they want. :)

Hope you're having a nice weekend, Sabine!! Big *HUGS* to you!!

I'm going with the theory that stress burns calories, so you'll burn up all the food eaten.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on July 1st, 2006 06:20 pm (UTC)
Ahaha!! I like your theory!!! I'm going to use it and not feel guilty!! :D

Thankfully it was a little better on Friday for us at our office. I hope your work stress gets better too! :(

Plate lunches are healing. I mean, rice AND macaroni salad? How can that be anything but a path to wellness?
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on July 1st, 2006 06:21 pm (UTC)
Ahaha!! :D I have to totally agree with you there!! :D

Thanks, Gill!! I hope it turns in to web work - right now it's just an inquiry, but I'm crossing my fingers! :D
