a dash of this or that

I post mostly about food. sometimes travel. sometimes work. I reblog webcomics, dogs, art, science, tv and sports.

They were friends, just friends, though friendship counted for so much.

It wasn’t easy to understand how the love between two other people could diminish you. If those two people were still accessible to you, if they called you all the time, if they asked you to come into the city for the weekend as you’d always done, then why should you feel, suddenly, intensely lonely?

20 second success story

This evening, during a work happy hour, two female colleagues independently confessed to having a “friend crush,” or some such thing, on me. Because I’m smart and cool and powerful. Several other ladies complimented me on my new dress. Besides which, the CEO of my company told me the presentation I gave today was fantastic and my insights incredibly deep. 

So. I guess I’m doing something right.
