Feels Like Home To Me.

Have you ever been somewhere and known instantly that that place is home?

For me, my favorite place on earth is Cambridge, England.

I spent a month there the summer between my junior and senior years of High School studying communications and journalism in a summer program and I totally fell in love.

There are certain things that always remind me of my favorite town, baked potatoes (from Tatties), the Open Market, Current juice (which I can never find in the states except for at Wegmans from concentrate), Punting on the river, and drinking tea at the Galleria.

So this morning when I went to Corner Bakery for breakfast I was amazed to find Black Current Iced Tea! It was wonderful.

I always get euphoric when I think about Cambridge and I think if I ever have the opportunity I would love to live there. Even if only for a year or two, but I would retire their in a heartbeat.

birth control and bags.

As weekends go this was a pretty uneventful one. Instead of opting to go out I spent most of it inside. I hate the heat unless I’m in the pool so I spent almost all of yesterday in bed and alternating between napping and reading.

I am currently reading…

Choice: True Stories of Birth, Contraception, Infertility, Adoption, Single Parenthood, and Abortion

By Nina Gramont

It’s really very good. I think all women should read it.

In other news my new co-worker (see post below) is still driving me mad. He keeps assuming that I will be doing his work until the end of the year. I don’t think so buddy!

Anyway I just came back from a two hour lunch meeting which was a nice change of pace and makes my day a lot shorter considering I don’t usually take lunch.

Anyway I have spent way too much money this month already and I spend half my day at work shopping on-line. This is bad!

Maybe I should start Christmas shopping now, it might keep me from buying for myself and at least I get it done early. Only problem is I really don’t have a very good summer wardrobe. Maybe I need another trip to Ross. I totally love that place. A few weeks ago I bought 3 dresses and a pair of shoes for a little over $80. This past weekend I spent $73 on two shirts at Ann Taylor Loft, so not a bargain! BTW did you know you can’t use Ann Taylor Coupons at Ann Taylor Loft??? That’s crap!

And I totally want a new hand bag. I just cant choose which one I want!

what do you think?

Soap Box

*gets up on her soap box*

I am Sick of your Holier than Thou attitude!

You may have been in this business longer than I have, but I have been at this company longer than you have and when I tell you that we do things a certain way it is not because I think it’s better than your way, it’s because I have already tried to change it and been reprimanded for it.

Just get over yourself!

And while I’m up here, who the hell gave you permission to call me “Kath” the first day you met me. You can call me Kathy just like everyone else!

*steps down from the soap box*

YAY! Cheese!

Ok so enough of the wedding stuff.

I do have a new cheese to share.

Mature Cheddar with Malt Whisky

Available from October to December, this is an admirable cheese for the festive season. Clawson has taken a fine Mature Cheddar and added a good helping of malt whisky, making this a warming, wintertime cheese.

This cheese is definitely the best cheese I have ever had! Yes I know what you’re thinking…but Kathy it’s not blue cheese! I know but by far this cheese is totally amazing, you can really taste the Whisky. It’s a bit crumbly but very creamy and wonderful served cold with water crackers or olives.

It’s hard to find because it has to be imported from the UK but SO worth it!

Here’s a secret…

If you are ever at the Maryland Renaissance Festival go to Wolfstone Kilt Company and you will be able to try this cheese for free!

But you did not hear it from me!
