I realized that I write and post an awful lot about food lately. It’s just that both J and I enjoy good meals and I’ve been trying out new recipes… and J’s loving it :)
I received some requests for a recipe over at flickr, so over here in my Cookbook is the recipe for the Noodle Casserole I made last night.
Very easy (!) and ready in about 30-40 minutes [10 minutes preparation, 30 minutes baking].
On a different note, work was unusually busy this week.
I worked a 15.5 hour-day on Tuesday. My supervisor had a presentation in the evening and we spent all day setting up computers, monitors and big screens in the lecture room on Campus.
The lecture went great. Many images and animations were shown that I had worked on with him. It was really cool to see them on a big screen :)
Since it was a public lecture, we didn’t really know how many people to expect, but the turn out was great and every last seat in the lecture hall was taken.
During the lecture, the audience had the opportunity to wear 3-D glasses to view our 3D data and see the development of “disasters”, for example how a bridge that crosses the San Andreas Fault slowly began to bend after the 2004 Parkfield, California, earthquake. Exciting stuff!!
Of course, we also had to take everything down once the presentation was over, therefore I didn’t get home before 11 p.m. Needless to say, I was dead-tired after working from 7 a.m. to 11 p.m. and decided to sleep in the next morning and go to work a little later than usual.
I am also working Friday this week – as in: today! – and what keeps me going is that I’ll still get my long weekend, because I’ll be taking Monday off :) Monday is my birthday and I don’t want to spend 10 hours of it at the office… I’d rather go and do something fun with J. Makes sense?
