Martha, Martha, Martha

The first thing to say about Martha is that she has great offices, and a crazy competent staff, all of whom are very sweet, very clean (I kept catching stage managers randomly wiping down surfaces when they had nothing better to do), and slightly terrified looking. Except for the kitchen staff, who are amazing and make dirty jokes in the kitchen, which obviously I like.) The second thing to say about Martha is that she looks and acts just as you would expect her to. And the third thing (which is really part of the second thing) is that she is such a micro-manager I was completely amazed. She kept saying things to her staff on break like, "You're using the crocque en bouche clip? You should use the wedding cake one!" or "I like the carbonnade better than the buorguignonne, don't you? We should have made that!" It was rather awe-inspiring I have to say. Rather surreal and ridiculous, but awe-inspiring all the same.

Oh, and the show will air THIS Wednesday, and NOT next Monday.

Life - freaky as it is - goes on....

So fucking cool.

And your book made my cry at the end. In a good way.

At some point, let me confess how so-not-like-a-professor I'm being in my fandom.

As in the word of the great JP, the author of all this crap, "who da fuck" finds shit like these two statements awe inspiring. Those are words reserved for the greatness of nature, of the power of true human kind, not the likes of some statements of an ex-jailbird, crooked ass towel folder who believed that she was above the law. "Awe inspiring my ass"

Sure you will hate it coming from me and yet this is exactly what the great JP says as she chronicles her day.

One of the most important parts of a trip is choosing the right place to stay during your travels. Many factors are influential in determining the desired accommodation; But we can mention the budget and amenities. Of course, the most important factor is the proximity of the neighborhood to the accommodation or hotels of choice. The center of Tehran, as its beating heart, includes most important commercial, recreational and scientific places, and it is much easier to access different parts of Tehran from the center of Tehran.

Blogger Ooddles Natural Premium Dog Food - Grain Free & Hypoallergenic Dog Food By Ooddles Kitchen said...

Ooddles has been developing dog food since 2016; it all started when a family member of a breeder became aware of the low-quality ingredients used in many dog foods commonly available. After extensive research, they developed two formulas with leading UK manufacturers. They launched two dry food products, the original two lines called Game On and The Catch which became very popular, very quickly, and still very popular today, these formulas were aimed at crossbreeds, although suitable for all breeds. Always selling out of the two lines, it became apparent the food was well received.
