There’s a plethora of junk food in the kitchen and I suffer from fairly serious afternoon snack attacks. I’m in danger of a “healthy eating plan” violation. Help.

No thank you...

April used to tell me that she personally rubbed all the tempting food with bacon, knowing that as a good Jewish girl, I wouldn’t even consider eating it. Without her, this work environment has the makings of a waist-line disaster…

Thankfully my pal RWC has stepped up to fill in as my personal hero (someone get her a cape!). She has made invaluable sacrifices including: eating the last piece of pie to help me avoid temptation, telling me bagels are gross and the cream cheese tastes like refrigerator (you know that taste – ick), offering to share her raw almonds with me, and even volunteering to take me for a walk around lunchtime. She’s a keeper!

But we both miss April. Don’t be surprised if you find us hiding in a corner, hugging each other as we sway back and forth, mumbling incoherently in an effort to keep the loneliness away. At least we are dealing with the pain of withdrawal together…

Back to my corner,


April & Sarah’s Separation: Day 1

April’s last day in the office was Friday. While Mondays are never fun, today is worse than ever.

Welcome to my pity party…

I started the day waiting on my usual bench at North Station, next to my “favorite” domicile-challenged fatigues and camouflage enthusiast (after all these mornings I still can’t quite figure out what he is raging about, but no matter – he rages whether I get it or not). I sat and waited for… nothing, as it turns out. It took me a minute to realize that I was going to endure the commute on my own from now on.

So I journeyed the two miles to my office alone. I’m so used to blabbing about life on these walks that the silence felt completely unnatural and just plain wrong. In the future I am either going to have to find someone to call en route (any early risers out there itching for conversation?) or resort to talking to myself. Stay tuned… 

And now I have to get to the business of business. Another day, another 14 cents. I will try to provide periodic updates throughout the day between bouts of loneliness and hysteria… and work, of course. Sigh.
