Today I...

* Tendered my resignation at work.
* Sent annoying emails to people I hope maybe to work for.
* Did not exchange glances or words with anyone ranked higher than my boss.
* Was left out of a big meeting.
* Ate a really unhealthy but incredibly delicious burrito.
* Felt anxious.
* Text messaged my friend.
* Found a little hope in some prospects for both full time and freelance work.
* Had a "retirement" dinner at Amber India thanks to my friend, who is almost as glad as I am that I will soon no longer work where I currently work.
* Fell and twisted my ankle again, but I can still walk on it fine.
* Called and babbled at Kevin. Twice.
* Bothered the rabbits, who apparently don't like red leaf lettuce. They ONLY like romaine, I guess.
* Had a Pony Up! song stuck in my head all day.
* Wondered what the fuck I'm going to do next.

Sometimes I just didn't feel like fishing the camera out of my bag. Obviously the Eiffel Tower temporarily cured me of that, but still. There's a few points missing from my travels.

  • Pretty much all the food I ate, some of which was, of course, bordering on spectacular. (It was Paris, after all.)
  • The museums. I didn't make it to the Louvre, but I didn't take anything at the Orsay or the Pompidou (and yes, pictures without flash are allowed). Or the Erotic Museum in Pigalle, or the Dali in Montmartre.
  • Most of the walking, oh, the endless walking. Or my sad, pathetic boot insoles that were worn paper thin at the balls of my feet. Ouch.
Seriously, Paris is full of beautiful, iconic stuff that you've probably seen before and I couldn't capture it well enough on film to make it worth posting.
