In which I yammer

On Monday my truck rolled over to 200,000 miles. I whooped about this milestone and then got distracted by the helicopter circling our neighborhood and all the cop cars. Never did find out what was going on.

I wonder if I had a slight cold the last few days. I feel much better now than I did, and I'm still on the medicine. Either that or I'm becoming acclimatized to it.

A fun waste of time.

I need to figure out how to make chili for our diversity lunch on Friday. The making won't be the problem - the problem, such as it is, is my gigantic Cadillac Kitchenaid slow cooker, which is not designed to be carried to work (or anyplace, really). I need a small, portable crock pot, now, apparently. I was hoping my Presto cooker would have gotten here (my choice for this year's "Christmas present" from work), but not yet. It does take a few weeks. I have to figure something out. Even if I make it in a pot and then warm it by the bowlful in the microwave... maybe that would work...

I have to do a lot of writing. I need to get my brain going. (What I want to do is make icons...) But first, fish and risotto for dinner!

"fun waste of time", my butt! I have a map right next to me and can't pass that thing... I click too slow :(

Yeah, I had cops all over my apt. complex this morning - how do you even go about finding out what happened?

I almost failed the first time, and only because I kept on trying to put Missouri in Minnesota, Maryland in Massachusetts, and flipping Vermont/New Hampshire. But I seem to do okay most times. Don't worry! Some of the gals at my office couldn't even finish it straight out the first several times!

I never know what's going on. The news doesn't cover "ordinary events" like this anymore. I remember when even a minor accident here would make the news...

Hmmm. I do have a Dutch oven (although many thicknesses of newspaper is harder, since I tend to read same online these days). I could give it a try.

Some of the gals at work have crock pots with carry cases, even, and handles. That would be darned useful for workday picnics.

I started to read the first line of your post and thought, Oh my God! She was in a terrible accident! I'm such a maroon. (I'm also very relieved.)

Oops! I should have said my ODOMETER rolled over! =yikes= Didn't mean to cause any stress with my choice of wordage! *g*

(I've been driving that truck since it was at about 76,000 miles, so most of them have been put on by me! I'm proud of the old girl - althogh her interior is falling slowly apart, she still runs like a top!)

Hmmm. The crockpot is big, but you could probably take it to work, if you can carry it when it's full. Not easy, though.

I wonder if you didn't have a touch of the bug that laid me out last weekend. I felt almost exactly the same, with a tummy / intestinal bug.

It's hard to lug around just the CROCK. I can't imagine trying to get it out to the truck, then out of the truck, through the parking garage (down from the second floor, where I always have to park), and up to the second floor of the office... although I suppose I COULD go inside, get the cart, and then come back for the crock pot... (muse) Kathy Lester said she'd bring in her small crock pot, so hopefully that will work.
