I am busy. Super-duper busy... And aparently a masochist.
I'm in the middle of the network migration for which I was hired as "project staff" at the Uni. (The migration being the "project".) Hopefully by the end of summer I will be a "permanent employee" of the department, or I'll be looking for another job after Pennsic.... again. So I've been putting in a lot of extra hours on weekends to get people's computers migrated as "seemlessly as possible." Working 12 straight days stresses me out... Working with a bunch of tightly scheduled luddites REALLY stresses me out.
So given the fact that the next month and a half is going to suck ANYWAY, I figure I'd liven things up by quitting smoking. I haven't had a cigarette since April 8th, and so far no one is dead. Having quit for 3 months last summer, I must say that quitting this time was much easier... I just had a lingering feeling that I was forgetting something. I can't tell you how many times I checked to make sure I hadn't left the oven on...
But as we all know, I am a retard, so those two things weren't enough. I am displeased with my current weight, and I live in terror that quitting smoking will make me gain even MORE weight, so of course, NOW is a GREAT time to start a diet and exercise plan...
I'm really REALLY amazed that no one is dead. Like, really.
Initially, I lost 9 lbs, but according to the scales, I gained 4 back during coronation. :-P. I find it hard to believe that the 7 oz steak I had on Saturday evening did this to me...
All that is not the point. The point is, that as my reward for not killing anyone, I have bought myself the recipe software of my dreams. It allows me to create and export cookbooks complete with nutrition information for every recipe:
(Notice that I've left of the crunchy topping because I am on a freaking diet. I was pleased to discover that a good sized portion of this only has 230 calories... I love cheesy potatoes.)
So... Yeah... My next task will be getting all my favorite recipes imported into my cookbook.
