Wednesday work day

Just some photos from a plain-old Wednesday working at M├ętier

This has become the usual start to my day: coffee and loading up the POS on the iPad.

We got a new shipment of books in! It’s always so exciting to see the books that I’ve ordered and place them on the shelves.

These knives came in, too. I keep daydreaming about the one on the left.

I brought my coworker J. a macaron. I had to get an Oreo one for myself.

J. is worried that I’ll drink his lemonade and get my germs all over it. So he labeled it. :)

More work at home, but this time with bubbly and a kitty cat to keep me company.

Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach

Funny, fascinating, full of gross and amazing facts.

Ben Monson, for instance, consumed sixty-five Mexican flautas. Who knows what the freightage was on that. I never before noted the similarity between flautas and flatus, but I bet Ben Monson has.

“Organs,” says Rozin, “remind us of what we have in common with animals.” In the same way a corpse spawns thoughts of mortality, tongues and tripe send an unwelcome message: you too are an organism, a chewing, disgusting sack of guts.

Heartburn by Nora Ephron

Somehow Nora Ephron makes broken hearts hilarious.

Arthur shook his head. “I’ve always been terrible at colors,” he said. “It comes from having grown up with the single-row box of crayons instead of the big box.”

“But Helen is your wife,” I said.
“But I never trusted Helen,” said Richard. “She just used to sit there and drink her Tab, and I could never figure out what was going through her head.”

Plus a city walk, a movie out, two movies at home, and strawberry-rhubarb crisp.
