Gone to the Dogs (CtBF: Duck Fat Cookies)

"I've never met an animal I didn't like, and I can't say the same thing about people." - Doris Day "An animal's eyes have the power to speak a great language." - Martin Buber I am not a clingy person by nature. The running joke with my direct reports is to make sure that a 24 inch minimum space bubble is left around me at all times. (This does not offend me - I fully endorse the idea). Hugs are reserved for 1) family or people who have made the short list, 2) life events (funerals, baby births, weddings, etc) or 3) young children. Now, I understand that this makes me a genetic oddity within my family and can project a stand-offish vibe to those who don't know me well.

Sorry, not sorry (CtBF: Baba Ganoush)

"You can fool all of the people some of the time, and some of the people all of the time, but you cannot fool all the people all the time." - Abraham Lincoln"Sometimes you have to do what you don't like to get to where you want to be." - Tori Amos In the never-ending list of foods that are or are not generally acceptable for consumption in Chez Cher, it can be very challenging to get a meal on the table depending who is sitting at the table...
