Journal entry

1. Woke up, wanted cigarette, didn't have cigarette, drank coffee while posting blog/checking blogs

2. Prepared and ate toasted sesame bagel with cream cheese and glass of orange juice

3. Spouse parted for work

4. Took shower and then listened to meditation tape (I say tape, but it's on the ipod)

5. Showed the apartment to someone who just arrived to live in Montreal

6. Felt conflicted after saying yes to the girl, but this guy wants to move in as soon as possible (She can't pay anything or sign the lease until next Tuesday)

7. Went across town to the farmer's market and paid tax bill at the bank

8. Walked home in the very muggy, sprinkly weather

9. Only took one picture of church doors along the way

10. Bought a lease agreement, onion soup, tootsie pops, strawberries, artichokes, wedding card. Ate two samosas while walking.

11. Noticed all the poor smokers, slaves that they are to the nicodemon.

12. Made "easy pasta" which is ground beef, a can of diced tomatoes, water, pasta, onion soup mix and cheese.

13. Had martini and wanted cigarette, didn't have cigarette. Ate strawberries instead.

14. Watched Voyager. I happened to catch the very first episode of the series a few months back and now I'm hooked.

15. The new arrival didn't have very good credit so we declined him, felt good that we'd honor the "yes" we gave to the girl

16. Watched a bit of the news, brushed teeth, went to bed.

Omitted due to high frequency: bathroom activities, gum and tootsie roll consumption, interaction with dog.

Voyager, as in Star Trek? If so, it's the one with Counselor Troi? OMG I love her!

Polt said...

Yeah, I was kinda wondering about the pooping during the day....

Voyager, eh? Hmm...well it's not the best Star Trek series, but it gets much better once Kes leaves and Seven Of Nine arrives...about season 3 I think.

Research proves that those who keep a diary live longer. I would bet it is the same for those who Blog. The non-smokers and Bloggers should live to be 90. The non-drinkers might live to be 100 but George Burns lived to be over 100 and he drank one glass of wine a day. They believe it helped his blood circulation and prevented hardening of the arteries. NicoDemon, I like that. Ed

I've heard of much worse days than this. Easy Pasta sounds yummy...and simple, so actually double the yum.

Thanks for your thoughtful omissions, but please give Sara a pet from me!

Java said...

Sounds like a pretty good day to me. Nothing fancy, but very succssful. (You didn't smoke)

Mark in DE said...

What, no "pleasured myself"???

Mark :-)

David said...

"mark in de" beat me to it.

I heart Captain Janeway.

Sounds like a lovely day!

Patricia said...

Errr, what's a samosa?

I'd venture that Sara's a big part of your sanity when you're wanting to smoke. Pics/vids please.

Butch said...

For a moment I thought you meant Memosa and I wondered if you had a straw handy whilst walking down the street. I would have had it all over myself.

Glad your renters are working out for you. Give Sara and yourself a hug. You earned it with all those temptations of smokers around you. I found I had reached a point of success when I could go to a bar and be around smokers and not smoke whilst drinking. You are well on your way.
