Group meeting at my house! AAACK

So, another meeting of the Major Group Project took place. Our first meeting took place at a coffee house with lovely ambiance, Wi-Fi access, and a quiet study area, but burned-tasting coffee. Since my plans for childcare fell through, we had no choice (OK, we had a choice, but all other options were undesirable) but to meet at…

I have since recommended her to several other translators who are overwhelmed with work and tend to let the housework slide. Give it a try. It’s free.

    Very funny post! While my house is always pretty much in good shape, I did decide to cook a two-course lunch for one of my friends and potential client here in Las Vegas last week. I figured that would give her a nice break from work, it’s cozier than a restaurant, and the food is healthier and better. All this was true, and we had a fabulous lunch, but after spending 45 minutes chopping herbs for my famous orzo/dill/feta salad, I decided I will buy us lunch at a restaurant next time. That way, someone else can wash the dishes, and I can spend more time doing actual translation work.
