A quick break

I'm off to IL for the weekend for my grandfathers' memorial service. V will be staying home to study for quals. It will be difficult without him but he is less than 2 weeks from the exams so he needs to be here. My bff and I are going to take advantage of the rare husbandlessness (her significant other is also busy) to enjoy a stop to my favorite little restaurant for steak and lobster. Really, all you can get is steak and lobster*. Comes with a giant potato and a pound of butter. And salad with amazing homemade dressings. And real old-school cocktails...yum!
Evan with the short work week, I managed to get a paper submitted today (woo!) and hopefully will get some other small tasks completed despite travelling. You know, tasks other than watching LOST and eating a ton.

I still have to pack but just got a wicked case of hiccups.
How do you get rid of hiccups?

*Just don't question the lobster in a land locked state...

*congratulations on the paper submission!
*I get hiccups almost every day. I hate it. I have no idea how to get rid of them other than holding my breath as long as I can.
*It's not just the lobster -- where does all the sushi come from?
*Have a great trip!

Drink a glass of water slowly through a paper towel held over the top of the glass. Never fails. (But I hope yours are gone by now!)

I'm sorry that your grandfather died, but I hope you have a good time in Illinois (which, by the way, is actually not a landlocked state).

Steak and lobster sounds like a very good idea.

Thanks for the suggestions! Hiccups are gone- water helped. And focusing on breathing very slowly!

Blackened boy- You are correct, but I discriminate against the great lakes in favor of oceans. Something about the smell of salt water. As well as the lack of lobster!

Sorry for your loss.

Congrats on the paper submission.

I must admit...I'm always wary of seafood in non-coast states.... ;)
