After the week from Hell at work I have to say there was one thing I looked forward to every day. Guess what it was?
- Heading to my car at the end of the day?
- Kicking off my shoes and relaxing?
- Knitting a hat?
- Crawling into bed?
Nope, nope, nope and nope. It was the corn on the cob I had every day with my lunch. I know -- what's so wonderful about corn? Well on this 17 Day Diet I can't eat starchy vegetables after 2 PM and I L-O-V-E corn on the cob in the summertime. I have a new patented (not really) way to cook it in the microwave. I wet a paper towel, roll it around the corn, place it on a dry paper towel in the microwave and cook it for 2 minutes. No more, no less.
I used to think I HAD to have butter on my corn but since I'm not supposed to use it on the diet, I've actually learned I enjoy the corn just as much without it. I salt and pepper it and enjoy every single kernel. Then I can go back to my duties at work and life is not
so as bad.
If only I could have my partner Youssouf back on my team again. We worked really well together and my new partner - not so much. Small sample -- after a 1 1/2 hour call and screen presentation where I had to correct every single bit of her work (I'm not being cocky, she really doesn't get it), she said 'OK Christine I think I have what I need for Offshore'. Seriously - Christine??? I thought who the heck does she think she's been talking to for 90 minutes???? If she blanked on my name she only needed to look at her monitor since I was the only other person in our virtual meeting room. Ugh. When I told Youssouf what happened he said 'I don't even know how to respond to that'. Welcome to my world.
