This is what winning looks like.

I’m traveling for my new job at Globotron. This means I’m so entirely out of my hermitting-it-up-at-home element.

I’m in North Carolina for training. So far, I’ve seen the Chapel Hill campus (lovely!) and eaten some jambalaya (yum!). This almost makes up for the fact that I’m in 4 days of training in a nondescript hotel conference room … training run by a guy who looks like John Malkovich sporting John List glasses and another guy who looks like he could very well have had a renaissance-themed wedding. I spent some time today trying to imagine his various wedding costume options. Is it possible to make chain mail out of pop-tops? Because that's what I settled on.

I realized this morning that I should never travel without my tweezers. Evidently, no mirror in my home has adequate lighting. Whenever I’m away from home, I immediately notice rouge brows. And yet, I have no means of addressing the situation. So, I sit in a nondescript hotel conference room, thinking about John List, John Malkovich, ren faires and my yeti-like brows.

Oh, and I think about the training, too. Sure. Yeah.

How are your weeks starting off?

The pop top chainmail idea is brilliant.

Today and tomorrow is "fall break" at my university. It would make too much sense to give us the full week of Thanksgiving off so we have two days now and three days then. I've been surprisingly productive: cleaned out my closet, did the laundry, made banana chocolate chip muffins & bread, paid bills, and had dinner at a new restaurant with a new friend.

You will notice that my list does not include anything school-related. This may prove to be a mistake.

What a great place to be sent for training! I've always wanted to go there.

You are right down the road from me!! Yay! And if you get a chance, and have a GPS, you should totally eat at Foster's. It's amazing!!
