It was a soup and salad kinda day. It was pretty good!
Following a day of meetings in the office, the global director of talent and HR took a bunch of us out for dinner at a cute, cozy tavern in Old Montréal. The company was great and the eats were super-yum! One of the best burgers I’ve ever had!
I’ll tell you what, one of the best benefits of working for a global organization is getting to work and hang out with peeps from all around the world. I realize, though, that my French is terrible and I should probably get a French tutor or somethin’ cuz I can understand, like, maybe every fourth word my French and French-Canadian busy business lady colleagues are sayin’. I guess I should probably brush up on my Canadian English, too, cuz who knows what those peeps from Toronto are saying half the time, eh?
Conference eats usually range from meh to blech, but the eats at the conference that I’m attending today are pretty good!
Apparently there’s a Very Important Celebrity Circle Jerk on the teevee tonight, but since I’ve seen, like, a grand total of zero movies nominated for the Grand Prix of the Celebrity Circle Jerk, I was all, Whatevs, about the whole thing.
Instead, the Busy-Lazy boys went to our friends Melanie and Gary’s house for a lovely Celebrity Circle Jerk-Free dinner partay. Besides being a Very Important Executive at a fancy-schmancy global advertising agency, Melanie is a world-class chef. She made some amazingly yum eats, which included socca for starters; coq au vin, veggies, and mashed potatoes for mains; and flourless chocolate cake with ice cream for dessert.
I’m pretty sure the conversation and the eats that we had were way better than whatever was happening on the televised Celebrity Circle Jerk. Although I did read something on my dash about all of the faux-spontaneous selfies involved and Benedict Cumberbatch photobombs and look how kooky celebrities are cuz they are just like normal peeps and J-Law’s dress and/or whatevs and who really cares about that shizz anyway, amirite?
I went to a hip soup and salad joint near the office with one of my Canadian busy business lady colleagues. Actually, my busy business lady colleague is American, but living in Montréal, so she’s technically my American busy business lady colleague who happens to be living in Canada.
I got soupe champignon with a fancy-schmancy grilled cheese sandwich that might have had figs in it. Who knows? But it was all yum.
Turns out a teeny-tiny bowl of mushroom soup and a grilled cheese sandwich really isn’t enough food to sustain me through the day. I feel a bit light-headed and/or like I might make some Bad Decisions for Dinner. Oh well.
