I had my first day at my new job today, I have never felt so comfortable going into a new position. Kind people? Check! Service culture? Check! Phenomenal loyalty tracking scores? Check! A wonderful new boss? Check! A comprehensive training schedule (along with the knowledge that I won't be thrown to the wolves unprepared?) Check! A beautiful, bucolic setting? Check! It was all that and more. I was smiling like an idiot all day. In hotel terms, think of this move as going from Motel 6 on Route Nine to the Ritz Carlton on Rodeo Drive. Yes, it's that fabulous. My new boyfriend- yes, the chef and I had the conversation a few weeks ago- made me dinner last night. Pork tenderloin with a rosemary cream sauce, garlic mashed potatoes and spinach sauteed with onion and pine nuts. Mmm. I did the dishes and then we watched a movie. So very domestic, but incredibly sweet. Plus I got dessert. Not the edible kind. (Sorry, couldn't help throwing that in. Forgive me.) Some former guests of mine are taking me out to dinner on Wednesday. Me, a bunch of boisterous Argentinians, and some fat expense accounts. I know, I know, Doc. I am bordering on the narcissistic here. ;) But I had to share my joy for a minute. Life is good. I hope all of you are as blissful as I am at this very moment.

LL!!!! I'm so happy for you and very proud of you!!! How great to see you 'beam'!!! Now..about this chef bf. Careful he doesn't fatten you up to keep you tethered to him. He might have a ploy here...unless of course you worked off your meal!
