What's for lunch in the lounge?
I am having the most perfect stuffed baked potato on the face of the planet...broccoli-steamed to perfection, a pat (just a pat mind you) of rich and sweet creamery butter, asiago and parmesano-reggiano cheese..the exact right amount of salt and cracked black pepper all melting beautifully into a light, fluffy steaming hot idaho russet.
I have achieved nirvana..it is neither too dry (from lack of topping) nor too sloppy (from being schlepped with cheese and butter)..the perfect balance.

On the side I enjoy a warm Portuguese hard roll all washed down with a nice, lemony diet Sierra Mist over ice.

How you must envy me.

1. a faculty meeting....
To discuss "personnel matters." Doesn't that sound like more fun than a barrel of monkeys?

3. Haven't decided yet
I had left-over shrimp for breakfast, the baked potato sounds great, but I'll probably wind up nuking a Boca lasagna and putting extra cheese on it.

4. I'm holding off lunch for dinner.
Real fried chicken -- with the skin -- on the menu.

But your lunch sounds pretty good. The description has sold me. It's kind of potato porn. Porntato.

6. No, I have Stouffer's baked chicken
with mashed potatoes and gravy, plus leftover raw greenbean salad with raisins and pistachios.

Comfort food with a dash of health.

8. What is this 'lunch' thing of which you speak
I had some seltzer water. Does that count?

Yes, I know EDs are no laughing matter. But if I can't laugh at myself...who else will and how can I have any fun? I find myself completely amusing.

:crazy: :silly: :bounce: :bounce:
