A promising foretaste

It has been a fun-filled week. These are my faves:

Black Forest
Usually I resist and often I am successful. But just this once I gave in to one slice of chocolate delight. Sometimes I wonder about the status of my workplace: is this still a university or has it turned into a party hub? Ok, it's still a university where birthday parties happen. I'll worry about the expanding waist later.

Alone time
Work on Wednesday made me forget to eat. By the time I came back to my apartment I was famished. I treated myself to brunch at my favorite Japanese restaurant. Isn't it also lucky that I got seated right away?

Items that serve one's intended purpose
This sounds to me like a shopping result that's worth the money: books that kick off stress, footwear that weaves 5-second dreams of a suit-clad 21st century Cinderella and accessories that compel you to relax.

Time out with friends at an album promo tour
When you've done nothing but focus on your job for a long time, it's always fun to socialize outside work. Emotional and mental batteries get recharged.

A promising foretaste
Near the stage when the artist (of the album promo) belted out Whitney Houston's "don't... make... me close... one more door...." I remember a youtube clip of her singing the Star-Spangled Banner at the Dodgers last year. Charice is coming back to Bangkok in October with David Foster. There's a household name to look forward to.

Sounds like a great week! I don't think I could pass up a slice of Black Forest cake, either. :)

Hazel said...

Melissa, yielding once in awhile just had to be excusable :)

Susanne said...

I'm not a big cake eater but I love a good black forest cake! There is no way I could resist that.

I would love to see a David Foster and Charice concert. That girl is amazing.

Black Forest cake and Japanese food and time spent with a friend would make my week happier as well.

Hazel said...

Susanne, I'm so looking forward to watching two amazing talents

Brenda, leave smiles on the face, don't they? :)

I love cake! Black Forest sounds really tempting.

I'm glad you have been able to relax with friends and enjoy life.

Hazel said...

Thanks, Jerralea. Nice week this was.

I love #3. It's neat to have some alone time plus some time with friends in a week.

Hazel said...

Barbara, I agree - alone and with friends. Man is indeed a social being :)

Laura said...

Cake, books, time with friends -- sounds like a recipe for a happy week to me!

Have a great weekend.

Owww, chocolate delight it sounds devilish.

I find a book is always a great escape, your right.

It sounds like you had a perfect mix of alone and party times, work and socializing. What a great week!
