eating out

There are an abundance of restaurants in Rochester, which makes it a great city for foodies like Ryan and me. Last Wednesday we went to Oasis Mediterranean Bistro with Kirk and Kristi. We had a fabulous time - the food was fantastic (the dolmades were to die for), it wasn't crowded, and the chef (ACF-certified!) even came out to greet us during our meal. Ryan and I are already planning a repeat visit some time soon.

i love my job

This past Thursday was my official one year anniversary at my job. My boss called me into his office at one point during the afternoon, and we had the following conversation:

Boss: Ok, here's your annual review. Do you want a raise?
Me: Yes, please.
Boss: How's six percent?
Me: Cool. That's good.
Boss: Because, you know, we do pay for all your benefits.
Me: I know.

And, not only did I get a raise, but I also got flowers, too.
