The job interview went well. I have a second interview tomorrow, with the manager of another branch. The interviewer said he really wanted to fast track me through the interview process, so I think that is a good thing. He seemed pretty happy with my answers, so that was good. I've always been good at job interviews, I don't even get nervous because I always rock them. They are actually fun for me. But since I really want this job I was really hoping to impress.

Will let ya'll know how things go with tomorrows interview.

And yes, I say ya'll. I think in a past life I was from Alabama or somewhere.

Why I don't get much sleep

Tuesday, October 12, 2010

See what I have to deal with? I love my cats (and boyfriend) but a girls gotta have some room!

*Shortly after this pic was taken I relocated the cats, I wanna go to sleep! The boyfriend is too heavy to relocate*

On an unrelated note, I had an awesome run this afternoon. I ran when I wanted, walked when I needed, listened to some new tunes and generally just had a great time! All smiles, even when it started raining and it got really windy. I also had an escaped dog join me for a bit. He ran next to me for about .5 of a km before I asked some people walking down the street if they lived on the street and knew where the dog lived. It happened to be theirs and they were very apologetic and said he tends to be a bit of an escape artist. I didn't mind much, it was a friendly dog and he must be trained to run on a leash because he was running right next to me but never in my way. I almost offered to take him on my run with me and bring him back but I thought that might be weird so I continued on dogless. I want a doggie! But my cats would hate me, so I shall remain dogless, occationally borrowing my mother in laws silly excuse for a dog (he is half pomeranian, half poodle and all wuss).


Meals in minutes

Monday, October 11, 2010

I love cooking. I love nothing more then being it my kitchen creating delicious food. But sometimes I just want a quick meal, I just want food. Enter burgers!

Yes, burgers. Make them at home and save a the calories!

I just put a veggie patty in the oven for 12 minutes. While that is cooking away I defrost a burger bun and cut the veggies. Now do squats for 10 minutes. When the oven beeps put the now defrosted and halved burger bun in the oven for a minute. Do lunges while waiting.

Build your burger! Today I am having a veggie patty, lettuce, cucumber and aioli. Aioli is high in calories, so I use about a tablespoon.

Frozen to plate in less then 15 minutes with very little effort.

What are your go to quick meals?

    We don't have Boca burgers :( We do have the lean cuisine steam bags though, we got those like 2 weeks ago. I will have to try one!

    Boca burgers are the best.But I don't know if you have them there. They come in different varieties, Southwestern, Italian, good stuff. I have also discovered, which again I don't know if you have those there either, is Lean Cuisine Steam Bags. They are bags with food in them and just microwave them for 5 min and you have a healthy, yummy meal.It's awesome.

    That sounds so good. I tried veggie burger a few years ago and thought it was awful. I would imagine that they have improved since then. I'll have to pick some up next time I'm in town. Never thought of aioli but now I know that would be the perfect addition to the veggie patty. Thanks for the tip! : )

I have the radishes

Monday, October 11, 2010

You may recall that my goal for the month is to try a new veggie, because I generally hate them. I have radishes, and they shall be my veggie. I think I MAY have had a piece of radish long ago. But I didn't mean to and I can't be sure, so a rasish counts as a new veggie! AND they were free. Guess who's (super cool) aunty has a veggie garden!? Mine. Aunty gave me a head of lettuce and a few radishes.

* Please, someone tell me what to do with a radish *

In other news....

Saving money is going well! Our fortnightly shopping bill is hovering a little over $50 with just over a week to go until the next pay cycle. My goal was $100 a fortnight, so we are on track. And I saved $3 by getting a lettuce from my aunts garden, since we needed one anyway, and this isn't a nasty iceburg one.

We are saving heaps of money by my boyfriend taking his lunch instead of buying it. He could spend $20 a day on takeaways, and packing a lunch costs around $3-5, depending on what is in it, so there are definate savings! The only catch is that my boyfriend suffers from a condition called lazyness. Guess who makes the boyfriends lunch... I don't mind too much, gotta do what ya gotta do! I just make him a sandwich (cut into triangles. Next week I'm gonna start leaving notes saying things like 'have a good day at school'. I find it very funny), throw in a piece of fruit, a few muesli bars and something sweet like a biscuit. Takes me 2 minutes, so all is well!

I got to skype my 'little sister' tonight. She moved in England and I miss her lots! I can't wait for her to come back, she wants to move in with me when she does, but it might be a while :( We call each other sisters, but we have just been neighbours and friends for nearly 20 years. We are as close as sisters (I imagine, I actually have no relationship with my real sister). So anyways, I got to skype with her and she looks well. She is enjoying England but is homesick and was happy to talk with me for over an hour. Isn't technology awesome?

Wow, rambling blog. And I'm sleepy.

T - T - T - Thats all folks!

    I've only ever had radishes raw, either by themselves for a snack, or in a salad. I like them as long as they're not real spicy. Good on you for trying them! Let us know if you like them.
