i think we’re alone now
good morning! other than posting ridiculous pictures for you all to die laughing at, i’m not sure what i did with my weekend. by the way, in case you are wondering:
■ i was 12 in that picture, in 7th grade
■ 7th grade was not one of my happiest years
■ it was halloween, but i was wearing my middle school cheerleading uniform because i was THAT into it
■ unfortunately, i cannot do a split anymore, or even touch my toes without bending my legs for that matter
■ i will be forever indebted to contact lenses, braces, and japanese hair straightener for making me who i am today.
■ i actually thought my hair looked cool like that, even though it was a couple years too late to be channelling tiffany:
carrots ‘n’ cake cameo
on sunday carrots ‘n’ cake published a guest post that i wrote on meal-planning. interestingly, this was a hot topic over the weekend in the blog world, with jessica and angela weighing in as well.
if you discovered this blog from that post, hello and welcome! i can’t promise to lead a lifestyle as fun as tina’s, but i offer other charms, such as pictures of 80s teen pop idols.
josh was post-call on sunday. since he is working on raleigh, i figured it was a great opportunity to meet up with my sister (who lives there, about 30 minutes from chapel hill) for brunch. she had mentioned wanting to try a place called coquette, so we headed there. as she is a bit of a francophile (she lived there for 18 months), i worried that it might not live up to her high expectations of quality and authenticity.
i had the quiche of the day, which was tomato basil. i was presented with a hearty slab, which was creamy and flaky and basically to-die-for. i am already plotting a return trip in order to try the apple and brie crepe. i’d also love to go for dinner sometime. if you live anywhere near raleigh, i highly recommend this restaurant!
on the medical front, i start a new rotation today: renal elective. i’m sad to say this is the last part of a 4-month stretch of having a fabulously call-free lifestyle. i will try to make the most of it!
workout: 40 minutes on the elliptical. i was supposed to shred but didn’t! i have officially been avoiding it (perhaps because i’m too scared of jillian?). today, however . . . it’s ON.
doin’ time: last night i was inspired by the brunch and made sort of a bistro-type dinner, à la martha, of course. the recipes were pork tenderloin with mustard sauce, which i accompanied with the crisp goat cheese salad (which also contained potatoes for the essential dose of carbs!). recipes in the sidebar as usual!
unfortunately, i had the camera on a weird setting — sorry for the suboptimal image!
reading: finished my AM report presentation for today on perforated appendicitis, with a little help from a convenient in-house surgical consult (josh).
other stuff: flossing yes, nail-destruction no.
