    I know we don’t typically post on news updates, but I’m leaving for London next week for a vacation (YAY!) and need some tips about food! It’s just me and my husband. We can do a couple of nice dinners, but otherwise will be trying to watch the dollars a bit. I’m thinking something more along the lines of $30 lunches, and maybe a few $50 dinners. Does anyone have any suggestions? Are there any good cafe or fast-food options that are good grab-and-go’s for breakfast and lunch?

    Also – I’m totally open to some fun dinner suggestions.

    • We DO post on news updates, like you and me! As for your question, your best bet is to stay in a US hotel, like the Mariot, and eat in their restrunt. FOOD in London is not good, unless you want Fish and Chips. FOOEY! You will not gain weight if you go there. YAY!!! Mabye I would go back to loose weight, b/c men there have bad teeth, and are anxius to have us let them pull our panties down. I now do NOT do that with men I have not dated for a month or more. YAY!

    As a failing academic, I’m just popping in to report that the Georgia Straight article about female archetypes in academia is one of the most insightful, spot-on pieces I’ve read in a long time. Thank you to Kat for posting it.

  3. This type of post is very rare because most of the site in this present world they always post an article about his business keyword. Day by day we lose the informative article. But after reading your article my thought is wrong. This is an informative article for me and also those people who search this type of post.

  4. I read the NPR story about working from home. I often work from home, but after work every day, so I kind of do 2 jobs —9 to 4:30 at the Office, then from mabye 7:30 to 9 each weeknight. By doing the evening shift also, I can bill an additional 75 hours a week, and have the weekends off to myself. YAY!! Of course, if I go out on a date during the week, I have to make that time up over the weekend. FOOEY!
