this lovely was at the grocery store today.  would you pay $2.49 for unidentifiable fish meat?

on a different note, my week shaped up a bit differently than planned.  monday i received an email announcing the zagat event was postponed due to rain.  booooo.  and yes it did rain every day for an entire week straight.  tuesday my interview went pretty well and we met at panera... so i had the new steak and white cheddar panini.  the horseradish spread was a bit of a surprise as i apparently lack reading skills, but it was mostly just unpleasant bitter rather than burning.  and paired with chicken noodle, it was perfect for rainy-day-last-minute-paper writing.  wednesday instead of the food truck event, i worked on paper reading and picked up the roommate at school for a bit of shopping...

whilst browsing the plethora of racks at forever 21, my preset phone date with the potential internship firm approached.  suffice to say... i did a happy dance in the middle of the store for my full-time paid summer internship, with the possibility of working part-time in the fall while finishing my last two classes!  it nearly made up for the fucking B- i got in a class.  thursday and friday went as expected with only some minor panicking about finishing reading honors papers.  they were eventually finished and saturday we trekked in to see apocalyptica!!!

the rhubarb obsession

from over a week ago... and we had a week of rain.  so things are growing like mad

baby basils growing from seed!

homemade strawberry pie margaritas [no booze involved...and sadly no crust or crumble topping]
pie filling with rhubarb berry sauce [see next picture] and katrin's homemade lemon curd.  AMAZING
another rhubarb fruit creation from the cookout 2 weeks ago.  i have since made another compote and bought 3/4 pounds of additional rhubarb

the last week of the semester

here is what my week has on tap:

sunday: work at the restaurant and freak out about homework
monday: give my last presentation for the semester and freak out about homework
tuesday: finish homework [actual hw assignment and 2 term papers] and interview for summer internship
wednesday: FREEDOM!!  and zagat lunch truck event in the city with a roommate
thursday: drive friend to court thing and then wonder if i got the internship
friday: work at the restaurant
saturday: possibly have a roommate work at the restaurant for me and freak out at an apocalyptica concert!

lots of freaking out to be had as i have become quite the spastic ball of panic with a very short fuse.  so until i have more time... here is part of dessert from the bday bbq-strawberry pie filled margarita glasses
*edit:  insert "frantically reading honors papers and submitting comments" somewhere before thursday and cleaning hell-hole of bedroom ...on friday morning?

but atleast i can redeem myself with a term paper...  3 presentations and 4 papers to go.
