Hooray for Me. I got a job -- a good job at a big, fun, brewpub in Portland. Medical, dental, and vision. Paid vacation, 401(k), and free beer! These perks are almost unheard of for line cooks. I'll be working the saute station and may develop nightly specials with the sous chef.
Not only did I get a great job but they are willing to hold it until I return from a vacation to Costa Rica.
I know that I'm lucky. I always have been. My mum used to say that I could fall into manure and come out smelling like roses. I'm not that lucky but I am quite blessed.
I think it's because of a fantastic glass necklace that my friend Lee made. It's beautiful. It looks like an interpretation of the ocean. Now I won't take it off.
Looking at the photo, I realize I'd better use more sunscreen.
