First post from DreamWidth; it helps that ALL my most active LJ friends are here already.

Cheese.

I've spent an amusing amount on artificial cheeses, what with all the new products popping up at the new grocery store that's a block away from me. Who knew that daiya has a "smoked gouda" style, until last night? (It's not The Same, but it tastes decent on a cracker.) And kite hill makes a dairy-free spinach and ricotta ravioli that's based on almond-milk ricotta. And there are cashew cheeses with live cultures!

If you'd gone two years or more without pizza in your life, you might be on this weird little bandwagon too.

Press progress

I did indeed impress my secondary handstand coach yesterday with my strength and balance, then unimpressed him with my inability to press up from having my feet on benches. That's my next goal. I should be able to do it... but I lose my spinal curl and go from press to planche right after my toes lift, and down I sink. What a strange and esoteric thing I am into; but I've been calm and happy about it lately. This year's very likely my year. Today's not my day though, today my shoulders get a rest.

The recruiter game.

Recruiter sez: I like to think our engineers are true bar raisers - they work cross-functionally and tackle insane technical challenges in order to [blah, blah...]

And then I sez: No thanks... and I doubt you're going to have much luck recruiting female tech leaders / engineers with wording like "insane". Why would I want to pit myself against "insane" challenges when I could lead a growing, healthy team that sets achievable goals for itself?
