Gettin’ Some…BBQ

Yeah. This whole getting laid off thing isn’t easy. Wednesday and Thursday’s upbeat mood was finally replaced with a serious case of reality and the gravity of the situation yesterday. I try to keep things as positive as possible here, but I also try to keep it real, so there you go.


So, I went on a date last night. We went to Rattle N Hum, a kinda cute beer bar in an unexpected area–33rd and 5th? Okay.

I had an Anderson Valley Summer Solstice Cream Ale.


We hung out there for awhile before going to Hill Country for dinner. They give you a meal ticket, and you bring it up and tell them what you want.


We got some of the moist (ew) beef, some of the lean beef and short ribs. Short is a total lie, because they were huge. For sides, we got mac and cheese, beans with burnt ends (the ends of the meat) and the sweet potato mash. The mac ‘n’ cheese was only so-so, but the sweet potato had good flavor and the beans were delicious.

It’s a good thing I don’t live in the south. I’d be eating a lot more BBQ.

    Hi Theodora,

    I got laid off from my consulting job back in March 2009 and it was definitely stressful; however looking back on that time, I truly believe that everything happens for a reason. I’m at a much better company and am much stronger emotionally and mentally having gone through that experience. Hang in there and be positive.
