11:15 pm - Vixen In The Kitchen: Give a Man a Filet mignon and..
I cook extra 8-ounce Certified Angus Beef filets every day, at work. Well, every day I'm on the grill station, which is four of six days now- every day I'm there and Dean isn't. Yes, six days has become pretty usual, with the day off making its shift now to Wednesday. We're consistently understaffed, and though we get by... oof, it's tough.

12:40 am - Darn Dire Straits on the radio.
Here I am again in this mean old town
And you're so far away from me
And where are you when the sun go down
You're so far away from me

You're so far away from me
So far I just can't see
You're so far away from me
You're so far away from me

I'm tired of being in love and being all alone
When you're so far away from me
I'm tired of making out on the telephone
And you're so far away from me

You're so far away from me
So far I just can't see
You're so far away from me
You're so far away from me

And I get so tired when I have to explain
When you're so far away from me
See you been in the sun and I've been in the rain
And you're so far away from me

You're so far away from me
So far I just can't see
You're so far away from me
You're so far away from me

You're so far away from me
Oh, you're so far away from me
Yeah, you're so far away from me
So far away from me
Yeah, you're so far away from me

You're so far away from me
You're so far away from me
You're so far away from me
You're so far away from me
So far away from me
So far away from me

Yeah, you're so far away from me

1:02 pm - Vixen In the Kitchen: The Snaps
Mostly at work, I'm a force for good. I try to engender positive feelings and support so my co-workers are encouraged and supported.

Now and then, though. The snaps come out.

Sous Chef Mike: "Oh, just use the spoons again. Who cares about germs, we're all family, right?"
Me: "Just because I do your Mom doesn't make us family."

Ryan: "Hey, you know who was at the Yankees game today? Cameron Diaz."
Me: "Really. I didn't know the Yankees picked her up."
Chef Joe: "Yeah, she's their new closer."
Ryan: [unprintable]

3:54 am - Whoo, new picture. :)
Just a very simple, but fun sketch of me, drawn by Matt Ryan at Free Comic Book Day. It's this here vixen looking speculatively at Willie Rison from the comic book Bigger. Willie, you see, doubles in size every time he gets turned on. Much as this might sound like a porntastic comic book, it's much more comedic with some sweet moments, as Willie tries to make it through with this troublesome condition.

Of course, I do not seem to be helping matters any.

1:38 pm - Vixen In The Kitchen: "Right there under Yerba Mate."
I have a very small but steady side business buying Energy Drinks and Gatorade and whatnot, and reselling them to co-workers. Typically it's on the nature of 20-50 cents profit for me per can/bottle, enough to make it worth my time to stop at the minimart on the way, low enough to keep them buying. Really I don't think I've actually made money from this, but it effectively gets me my beverages for free in the end. Yay!

So while at Super Wal-Mart I found some of this: Hogan Energy. This is just too ridiculous not to pick up a 4-pack of, naturally. At least Hulk Hogan makes a more natural choice for energy drink spokesman than Jeff Gordon. So this comes into work for sale. Yo-Yo, our kitchen lesbian, is feeling tired by about 7 in the day and buys one.. and a half-hour later is quite revitalized, and acting like her usual brash self. Including one bit of silliness not adequately repeatable in this space, involving lifted-apron gestures. (Yes, it's probably about what you're thinking.)

So naturally I drink one of these myself, to give it a taste. Good stuff! Flavorful, not too bad on the carbs, hmm. what's in this. Caffeine, B12, Guarana, Yerba Mate, ... ... and Horny Goat Weed Extract. Oh heavens.

It's not like I don't finish off my own can, mind. Still. Much as Yo-yo liked the flavor I worry about continued sales of this product.

11:16 pm - Vixen In The Kitchen: Donut Quest
Now, every other month of so at All Fangy[*1], I bring in a box of donuts. Usually it's Dunkin's, especially since they opened a new store that's directly on my commute path. In fact, it's just about impossible for me to get to work without passing by a Dunkin's or a Tim Horton's. (Route 2 North: Tim Horton's. Route 2 South: Dunkin's. 184-Shewville or 184-Lantern Hill: Dunkin's. 184-117: Tim's and a Dunkin's.)

Anyhoo, it' usually on a day that's going a potential wreck.. in this case, just a busy Saturday following a busy Friday, where the spirit and camaraderie, as well as the insulin levels, of my co-workers will be lifted by a dozen or two donuts. Of course, the trick is to find the mutually satisfying mix that gets everyone a donut (and me perhaps two, but hey, I *bought* them) and leaves folks satisfied. It's an iterative process, as co-workers switch in and out; our jelly-donut fan Sous Chef Gilbert has been replaced with Sous Chef Mike, whom seemd this time to gravitate towards chocolate glazed.

Hao's been a tricky sell, though. She has the semi-usual Chinese taste buds, not really being big on most desserts, or cheeses- though she loves cheesecake, oddly enough. But good cheesecake is rich without being sugary. Anyway, she's not much for donuts, though she's tried.. it always ends up as a quarter-segment cut and then and then an "No.. too sweet!" But this time, I got a 'Old Fashioned'. You know. The most boring, unfrosted, unglazed donut offered there. The kind you're always hoping won't be the last out of an assorted box. And she dug. "Very good, yes!"[*2]

Success!

--G.R.R.
[*1] Not the Italian restaurant's real name.
[*2] Yes, she really talks like this. Living most of your life in China and learning English as a second language means close-to-stereotypical speech patterns, even from smart people.

2:28 am - Awwk!
Your Power Bird is an Eagle

You are spiritual and able to soar to great heights.
You are a true inspiration, and many people look to you for guidance.
And you are quite demanding in relationships... but you're worth it.
People know that you will become even greater than you imagine.


No, I didn't try to steer the results neither. :)
