The diet is going well. Thanks for asking.  I don’t know if I have lost any weight, but I have been eating a lot of tomatoes. So, I’ll call it good.
Well, except for last night. Last night I was hungry.  I mean, the kind of hungry where even if you are full you are hungry. The only thing that would have satisfied that hunger would have been movie theater popcorn with lots of butter.  So, I ate some fruit and veggies.  Didn’t satisfy but it filled me up.

It’s been raining a lot here.  That’s probably no big surprise. I mean, rain is a part of spring, no?  The big surprise is how slippery grass is!  Plus, it was recently cut.  So I have little piles of cut grass randomly placed in my yard and driveway.  It’s a like trying to walk on a slip-and-slid in nylons during a tropical storm in some areas.

Today though the sun is shining.  I don’t know how long it will last.  I hope it will be sunny for a few days. We are in the time of year when school has several events and outings.  For example, Friday Son has a field trip and Monday Daughter has one.  Thursday is awards night.  Yup, the end of the school year wind down has begun.

You know what else has begun? Season Finales.  You do know what Season Finale means, right?  It roughly translates to “Cruel on-the-edge-of-your-seat worse possible moment to end a show episode”!  You know it does.  I mean, we’ve all been there yelling at the tv.  Usually it sounds something like this:  “OH NO! you can NOT! leave it there!”  or  “Uh! They can’t die!!!”  or “Bu.. I… How…. aarrrggh!”  with hands thrown up in the air.

One show I watch tries to be kind. They nicely wrap up a season with a little bow of “end of chapter xx” and show you a glimpse of the next chapter/season.  However, that’s just a minute or two taste.  You still have to wait.  It’s like bringing out the desert and giving you a sample of your favorite delight on one of those tiny disposable sample spoons and saying “Sorry, you can’t have it right now.”  Cruel I tell ya! Cruel!

Now, if you’ll excuse me. I must make a diet-shake, open some windows and catch up on my on-line shows.

Laziness Stole My Week! March 5, 2009

A friend invited me to go walking with her today. That really interferes with my plan to dominate the world with passivity and laziness.  You know, to properly master being lazy is much more work than it should be. I’m just sayin’

I did skip working out again today. I blame my toe.  I’ve been (what I call) medicating it since last night. So, I think I’ll be okay to walk.  You know, other that it completely and totally contradicting my lazy plan.

Speaking of plans… I did have big plans that included massive cleaning and a daily workout routine, but that kind of fell by the way side.  I ended up eating poorly and watching too much (on-line) t.v.

I mean, seriously, LOST, HK, Heroes, Chuck, The Terminator: TSCC, Fringe, Bones… Can you blame me?
And thanks to a friend, I have added another show to the list.  See, she told me about a show on TNT.  I hadn’t actually seen the show myself.  So, it only made sense that I should go to the site and check it out, right?  Well, while I was there, I discovered some episodes of  The Closer I hadn’t seen. Well, you can bet your whole bag of Smarties that I watched what was available there.  And while I was on-site, I checked out one other show called Leverage.  Hooked.  That’s all I can say.  Hooked.  It cracks me up much like Bones does.  I can see the old me so much in one of those characters.  Don’t worry about which one.  And then, a couple of the guys in the show… How comical.  I know both those types.  I love the characters because it’s just… they’re funny.

Hey, I only claim to have a sense of humor. I don’t recall saying it’s a GOOD one, just that it exists.  K? K.

Anyhow, the computer and my toe and the ice cream have completely stolen all my time this week.  S-L-A-C-K-E-R!!!

On the bright side, I’ll have plenty to do this weekend. Yes?
