The Universe of Mops

“I had no idea the universe of mops was so vast.” –my co-worker

Today is driving me crazy. Nothing seems to be going right and everyone at work is uptight about all of the events we have happening this month. My office mate is on a manic mission for a new mop, which apparently is more complicated than nuclear physics.

It’s times like this that I wish I had become an accountant.

Well, not really. Numbers scare me.

I made the mistake of going out for lunch today, despite having brought leftovers. Often when I get really tense at work, I just want to get out of here. I could, of course, nuke my lunch here and then take it to Aquatic Park for a picnic, or something, but instead, I decided to rot my insides and go out for lunch with my co-workers.

The burger was sub-par and it was not very fun. Fail.

Here is what I was supposed to be eating for lunch, which would’ve tasted much better:

Trader Joe's Whole Wheat Penne Pasta with fresh CSA broccoli in parmesan cream sauce.

It was my first time making my own pasta sauce, and for that reason, I don’t think I will give you the recipe. It didn’t work out very well, but it was still totally edible.

I also realized for the first time in my life that a whisk is not an optional piece of kitchen gadgetry.

Oops.

Now you know what to buy me for Christmas!

Now I’m going to eat a snack (see below) and get back to work. Thank goodness I only have another 1.5 hours of work to go! Beer and vegging in front of the TV await me!

Eat your vegetables!

Do you ever get sucked into the office lunch trap?

    Nope never. Haven’t had lunch out at work in at least a year or two. =P

    Try grabbing a couple of forks and holding them together for a quick ghetto-whisk. ❤
