thank you to everyone for your kind comments about the interview!! I still can’t believe it’s happening and I’m completely scared that I’ll look ridiculous but I guess big risks usually yield big rewards, right?
when I last posted, I was in the air on my way to Boston. well the flight was awful – lots of side to side movement before we’d even gotten all wheels off the ground. upand down were both terrible and I was actually glad all I’d put in my stomach was water!
i had a busy day at work, but was super productive and really enjoyed seeing my team again. there’s just no replacement for face time. I finally got around having a Clif bar around 10 – the white chocolate macademia flavor – not bad. a little too sweet for a breakfast but it got the job done. since I’d woken up at 5am, I grabbed a grande Christmas roast from starbucks and sipped on that throughoutthe morning. I wasn’t hungry at 12:30 so I ran into a meeting without eating. too bad it lasted until almost 4pm!!!
I inhaled a clementine before heading down to our holiday party. I opted for sparkling water since i hadn’t eaten much and then we were off to the Langham hotel to eat at Bond. WOW what an amazing place! high ceilings, huge chandeliers, waitresses in Bond-girl-tight cocktail dresses. I took one look at the menu and thought I’d died and gone to heaven. i started with a martini and shared the tuna tartar with my friend. the menu is designed as a tasting menu so the portions are more modest and I had plenty of room for the sea scallops I ordered. they were delicious – served over wilted greens in a very simple sauce. divine! another martini and several hours of grey conversation later, I was back at the corporate apartment. I acclimated myself a bit and found the cabinets full of oatmeal, peanut butter, pastas, tea and much more! I was still a little hungry but didn’t want to eat and crash so I had an acai green tea and passed out just before midnight.
now I’m waiting for my flight back to NY, my husband and my puppy! I took today off so I’m hoping to finish gift wrapping and make a nice dinner for my man. maybe I’ll sneak a nap and a run in too, but I’ve got the 15k tomorrow!!
cross your fingers that tis flight is smoother….
