Awkward / Awesome Volume 38

Awesome: Mid-week, mid-day dates to get fried egg sandwiches. 

Awesome: Upon hearing awesome music coming from my friend's open office door, I decided to leap into view doing a crazy dance.
Awkward: No one was in the office.  I guess that could also be classified as an 'awesome' considering how ridiculous I looked.

Awkward: Bracelet lines from copper jewelry.

Awkward: Accidentally dressing like a Christmas elf...

Awesome: One of my labmates made amazing oreo-cream-cheese truffles.
Awesome x 2: Then another labmate made super delicious blueberry-coffee-cake-like bars.

Awkward: Not getting enough data in time to present at a conference I'd love to attend.
Awkward x 2: Asking my boss if she'd be willing to fund any part of it anyways.
Awesome: She said she'd pay for part of it!
Awesome x 2: By 'part', apparently, she meant pretty much ALL of it!

Awesome: Sitting at an outside fireplace after a lovely date.
Awkward: Realizing some creepy old dude was sitting on the other side of the fire watching us.

Awesome: Grilled cheese.
Awesome x 2: Grilled cheese with avocado and grilled onions.
Awesome x 3: Grilled cheese with avocado and grilled onions, dipped in tomato soup!

  7. Oh! I have an awkward/awesome from last night:
