Back to Work

It's been almost 10 days since I last posted. I didn't mean to leave it for so long but it has been a hard couple of weeks. Going back to work full time after 7 months is tough. The job itself is not really demanding but there has been a lot of information to absorb. I'm also finding that everyone here is too damn sweet. It's a little nauseating actually. I think that for the most part it is sincere but it's a bit much for someone whose age measured in cynicism is about 437. I'm also quite a bit older than the people I work beside at the reception desk. The teachers are my age and older but I don't spend much time with them. This is the first time I have really felt the gap. There's so many things they don't know. I'm also missing conversation with other foodies. There was an article the other day in the Times about Camembert cheese that I would loved to have discussed with someone but they would all have looked at me as if I were a little crazy.

Fortunately I am going to Lady Epiphany's for the 4th of July and I will be able to let the wise-ass remarks out. Not to mention drinking wine and eating lots of yummy meat off the grill.
