Depends. Is It Bacon?

If you're in the food service industry the bigger question is: You dropped it on the floor. Do you SERVE it?

Things I Love Thursday

My New Health care Plan

Under my old health insurance, I was limited to 24 visits to my therapist per year. As a result, I either saw him less or paid more for extra visits. Each visit cost me a $30 copay, unless it wasn't covered by my insurance, in which case, he gave me a heavily discounted rate that I could afford. Last year, I spent $920 on therapy alone.

My new health insurance gives me unlimited visits. If I went once a week, which would be ideal, I would pay a $10 copay per visit. That's $520 per year! That's a $400 discount! And if that weren't reason enough to love my new health insurance, my prescription copay is lower, too.

My New Job

I recently became a server at a certain Irish Pub in Kendall Square. If you're around Cambridge at lunch time in the next week, you should come by! I like the people I work with, I like the atmosphere, and I forgot how much fun waiting tables could be. Relative to retail, it is the best job I've ever had! The pay isn't always going to be great, and I can't lose sight of bigger goals, but for now I'm really happy.

Nah, I don't know this puppy, but if you click on his picture, you can see his profile on Puppy of the Day! I just thought he was too cute to resist sharing.

26 Things To Do Before My 27th Birthday

{Old Greyhound by Daniel Greene}

Here's a scary thought. I turned 26 today. Twenty-six. Somehow, it feels different from 25. I was a little nervous, but mostly excited about 25, but 26 seems so much...more. I'm excited, but I'm starting to feel a little bit older. I'm starting to slow down in some ways, ramp up in others. That being said, I thought it was time to make a new list! Here are 26 things I hope to do before my 27th birthday:
  1. Make a Quilt
  2. Procure some David Bowie on vinyl in February 2011...shortly after age 27
  3. Take dance classes
  4. Take some yoga classes
    in 2011...I finally got off my butt and did this
  5. Find a new apartment
  6. Bake rainbow cupcakes
    For J's 28th birthday! Which is...oh, one month after I turned 27. Whoops.
  7. Sew a dress
  8. Apply to grad school
  9. Make fortune cookies
  10. Make a scrapbook
  11. Brand myself
  12. Plant some lavender
  13. Design some jewelry
  14. Go to waterfire
  15. Start photographing stunning fashion moments
  16. Visit the JFK museum
  17. Travel
  18. Finish the frost flowers shawl
  19. Finish my first project 365
  20. Use some of the polaroid film in my freezer
  21. Make 100 paper cranes
  22. Make a 2010 portfolio
  23. Make garlands
  24. Hang twinkle lights in the apartment
  25. Do a project involving polaroids+letters
  26. Go out on a rowboat

Daily Mind Asplode

Dear Corra Group:

It is "Peace of Mind," not "Piece of Mind." I'm sure your goal is to come across as professionals, not make me snort coffee out of my nose. After you double check your grammar, we can discuss the use of Papyrus on your "book covers."

Speaking of grammar, I'm just wondering why *your* is italicized in that second image when *heart* should be italicized (better yet, trust your customer! Don't italicize either!).

I'm sure you saved a ton of money by outsourcing your design work to India, but maybe you should have had a native English speaker look over your work...

you need some logo re-work, feel free to contact me.

Twitter Font Cloud

twitter font cloud

twitter font cloud made of all the words I use most frequently on twitter. Note: seriously. lol. apparently. I need to use less filler words, perchance?

A Very Gocco Christmas

Apologies to anyone who didn't get a Christmas card this year, but the holidays were hectic, and my rolodex was woefully out of date. So even though this is a little bit late, I wanted to share a little bit of holiday cheer.
