Fish to Face. NOM NOM!

27 Feb

I stood in the dressing room mirror at New York and Company and wiggled around.  This motion is called “giggly puff”.  And the sad true fact was, after doing to initial research into my diet, I was eating 60 % carbs and 25% fats with so little exercise.  Umm, any pie chart reading idiot could see this was already way out of hand.

So, I’m rocking a high protein, low carb diet. (Lets be real, I’ve always been a dough girl, don’t take my bread!) I start craving some chicken with tasty flavors and  I stressed over the recently closed Roost. Says closed for the holidays, what a lie.

Deep into my chicken craving I remember Le Bercail on Balitmore.  Roost did fried chicken, which is not diet appropriate.  However, Le Bercial, offers grilled chicken, fish, and fresh vegetables.  The sauces section may be all you need.  But I ordered the half chicken and plantains.  What I had forgotten about was how well spiced the chicken was.  And from there, I forgot all about Roost and fell head over heels with Le Bercail.

Such good food, so close to Clark Park and open late!

I’m sorry, all my checks say 2011!

I’ve finally hit the end of my epic travel fall.  Snatch up a new house on a new block and headed out to RENO.  Which by the way makes the top 50 places to live, barely.  But so do most of the cities in North Carolina.  Gee wiz.  Philly doesn’t even crack the count.   So check out your future!

I recently checked out ARCgis programming.  An urban mapping device.  So neat and so much information, but not really what I need.  You can have a 60 day trial and tons of tutorials if your interested!

This January we also hired the new Friends Association for Higher Education Coordinator, Kimberly Haas!  Great news!  I also had a chance to use a conference interfacing program called GotoMeeting.  Video chat, call in phone conference and the ability to record it all and share with folks unable to attend the meeting.  Plus you can score some cool screen sharing and bump it up to webinar status if you want.

Can you see the geek in me drool?

I’m also on the job hunt, which has got me salivating over all sorts of options.  From cool places to work, to programs I would keel over to work for.  I’ve been picking up hot and heavy skill sets.  Next stop?  Grant writing!
