I think today should be named Free Friday. Not only did I win 6 tickets to The Wonder Bread Years (see previous post), but lunch was free today in our building. The organization that manages our building is also remodeling. After months of no cafeteria, the new cafeteria opened today and free lunch was given to all who cared to stand in a long line and wait. After about a 15 minute wait, I was able to get some pasta to order (penne with spinach, mushrooms, broccoli, and tomato cream sauce) and a nice salad and beverage for free! The official grand opening is Monday but I guess they wanted to do a trial run and make sure the staff was all trained in.
While eating my free lunch I went to NBC.com and watched the latest episode of The Office for free as well. Am I crazy or is this new? Didn’t they charge to watch episodes last year? I used to tape The Office and watch CSI and Grey’s online for free because NBC charged to watch their shows. Anyway, how cute were Pam and Jim? So cute, right?
Finally, and this doesn’t have anything to do with things that are free, but ever since about 12:30 I have felt mildly ill. As though if I move too fast or too much the yummy free lunch I ate while watching free The Office on NBC.com will make a return trip up esophagus way. I went to the rest room and felt hot and clammy and shaky for about 10 minutes. Then, just like that, it passed. Part of me hopes it’s because the insemination is working and this is a preamble to morning sickness (see previous post where I noted the next two weeks will be spent over analyzing every bodily function and seeing if it can be applied to a pregnancy symptom). Part of me worries that this IS because the insemination worked and this is how I’m going to spend the next 9 months of my life (again…not that I’m complaining and in fact while in the bathroom said to myself that I will gladly take this if it means I’m pregnant). Anyway, the rest of me just wants to go home and lie down with my laptop and last night’s episode of Grey’s Anatomy. Man, having class on Thursday nights kind of bites the big one.
