Home again

I'm still tired, even after I slept well for two nights running and took a long nap yesterday.

Today I'll be doing some work from home plus taking care of piles of laundry and mail. I tried to schedule a massage -- no luck.

I am appreciating home cooked meals, my own bed and my family.

This list of the 100 most mispronounced words and phrases reminds me of my Southern roots [pronounced RUTZ].

My favorite: Heineken remover.

Brazen is a very, very good thing

Can I just tell you (again) how much I am in love with Penelope Trunk and Brazen Careerist? I love her writing style. I love what she writes about. I love that she is honest with her readers about her life. I even love that her name isn't really Penelope, because, come on -- if we could choose another name for ourselves wouldn't we pick something like Penelope?

I follow her blog. I follow her on Twitter. I am "linked in" with her. Now I want to meet her and have a glass of wine and a conversation.

Call me girl. We have a lot to talk about.

Consuming ...

- LOST season finale
- Top Chef (the recent episode made me want a steak)
- Krispy Kreme donuts
- Limes, tonic and Bombay (Honey, I think we're out of ice)
- Brazen Careerist (I think I'm in love with Penelope Trunk, or whatever her real name is)
- Strawberries from the farmer's market
- Bill Bryson, who writes the best books to read on airplanes
