"it's the consistency of oatmeal, the sweetness of chocolate milk and as fun as fruit roll ups in grade school."

I've landed a new job!

Why not announce this now? It's as good a time as any! My contract with the School of Social Welfare at UC Berkeley is up at the end of this month, and lucky for me the perfect position at the Psychology Department opened up. I will be a Student Affairs Officer there starting in late May. Woo hoo!!! Go Bears!

Quote of the day - Thursday

This one is from Maya Angelou.

"I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way he/she handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled Christmas tree lights."

Stuart loves laundry

something i learned today... yes actually, at work

I've never heard the term "spaghetti" used when referring to Western movies before... until today. So, what did I do? I looked up "spaghetti western" on Wikipedia of course! Who knew!? You don't really have to answer that.

Birthday dinner

There were a lot more of you there tonight but I couldn't post *every* picture. Thanks to all of you for coming out to dinner to celebrate with me... and to share in the glory of my pink birthday cake.

when it hits me

it really hits me that i am a new age when i go to the gym and have to enter it on the elliptical machine.

look at this gorgeous girl

Happy birthday also to my "birthday twin" Jen

My birthday got so much better :)

We had a lovely dinner at a new place in Berkeley that we had never been to called Olivia.

And, a new kitty came into our lives... her name is Gracie. If we decide to keep her though, we may need to change that. Right now we are thinking Emerson is a cute name. :)

before 12noon

my special pancake mix was expired, stuart killed my plant gnome, i burned my stomach leaning over the griddle, and dave accidentally broke the kitty water dish... and all of this before 12noon.

One more year in my 20's

today i turn 29. you know, it's interesting because it is the first time a birthday has come and i haven't been thrilled about the age. what's up with that? I mean, after 21 there isn't too much to be excited about, but i loved 25, 26, and 27. so far i've heard that 29 isn't so bad, so i'm hopeful, but not exactly ecstatic about this one yet.

Stuart rides!

We all know that Stuart loves to help... with homework, changing light bulbs, bringing in the mail, scooping litter... you name it, Stuart is there participating.

This morning when I went to get on my bike to ride to work, guess who was already on it ready to go!? I swear, I didn't put him there, he jumped up on his own!

survival of the matzah-i-est

i have survived yet another passover. ah. it felt so good to have a tortilla tonight. the simple things in life are so sweet, aren't they?

some of you may remember how my passover went last year. i had one little slip up, but overall i did pretty well. this year, other than eating the frosting and berries around the cake part of a wedding cake (ok so maybe some crumbs got in, but i made an effort to avoid them) i made it all the way through.

kudos to me and everyone else who did it. you know who you are. :)

Marc and Beatrice's wedding

This is my friend Marc. And that is my friend Manal with her friend Beatrice. Manal and I introduced our two friends 3 years ago and look... now they are married!

we were the official cake deliverers...

...even though we couldn't eat it (because of Passover). And no, in case you or anyone else was wondering, we did not have to make any other deliveries that day.

Don't even bother
