Stuff From 3/3/15



                            Just a few random things of no particular importance from my day. First of all, I can't believe it's already March 3rd!  Wasn't Christmas last week?  :) I had, (and still have,) a long list of things I wanted (want) to do in the first 6 months of '15.  Waaaaay behind on my reading goal.. And my weight loss goal.. and my keep-in-touch-with-people letter writing goal, and.. and.. and... As usual, online is a huge distraction for me. I said I was going to nip that in the bud. Set time limits. Well, I've set the time limits, but I'm rebelling against them. No surprise to those who know me well. If I can procrastinate something, I will totally do it!  And yes, I can even procrastinate in procrastinating. I've made a little progress in my battle with the procrastination monster, but I need to make more.

                        As for my reading goal of 36 books this year, I've read only 3 so far. I have a long way to go!  Thing is, I have such a wonderful home library, that it's hard to choose what to read at any given time. And the actual library is one of my favorite places ever!  I go there 2 or 3 times a week. I'm forever returning books, borrowing more, and donating books of my own that I either start and don't like, that have been in my bookshelves 'forever', and I know I'll never read, or books I've read that I don't want to read again and therefore don't need to keep!  Plus, there's the fact that I can't seem to borrow just 2 or 3 at a time. It has to be at least a half a dozen. It really IS ridiculous. There's the fact, too, that there's so much wonderful stuff to read on the interwebz!  As you know, there's a whole Universe of delicious reading goodies. Must. focus. Must!  Lol. Of course, then there's the fact that to read, and be online.. I sit. On my arse. It will be jam pretty soon if I don't get OFF it!  (I can't blame gravity for all my woes, now can I?) it IS a law and all, but I could be doing much more to reduce its effects!

                     And what's another thing that's become an enormous distraction over these winter months?  Ah yes. NETFLIX!  And Acorn. Acorn. That little squirrelly nut in the form of awesome British TV show brought directly into my home for my viewing pleasure!  I love the British TV!  When it was 'just' Downton Abbey Sunday nights on PBS, I was 'safe'. But now there's Time Team, Midsommer Murders, Vera, Inspector Morse, Republic of Doyle (Canadian,) Miss Fisher Mysteries (Australian,) Doc Martin!  Shall I go on?  No!  I've talked long enough. I am solely responsible for my lack of action. My jelly arse laziness. My (almost) complete failure to meet my goals. I feel better already talking about it here. Confession is good for the soul, after all!  Thank you so much for your patience.. for listening to md drone on. Drooooooooone!  I swear, my next blogpost will be filled with thrills!  Well, maybe not. But I'll try to give it more plot. Maybe a little less 'character development'.  Snort.

                     Until then, I wish you all a wonderful Hump Day!  Sending peace!  I'll return!

Nova Haiku



                                 Science-y shows rock!
                                 Love a great documentary!
                                 Curiosity!

                                     Mary R.

This has been an excellent month for new PBS shows, and Nova is a super favorite!  I always make popcorn when i watch.  Always.  Some people like movies.  Like, oh i don't know.. Star Wars.  I love me a great documentary.  I eat it up with a spoon to get every drop!

    You all have an excellent day tomorrow..  Peace, and i'll be back soon..

Impatience!




                                   Will summer arrive if i close my eyes and count to 10??
                                Will i lose 20 pounds if only i close my eyes and visualize?
                                    Will i shrink some if only i take a super long shower?

                                         If i eat that big piece of cake.. (chocolate of course,)
                                    Will it enhance the gravity in my breasts, not add weight to my thighs?
                                         How about if i listen to some fast tempo swing music instead
                                    of my beloved 'slow' classical music..  will time go faster?

                         Of course i know the answer to all these questions.  It's the same answer.. a resounding NO!

                              But i'm okay with that.  All is as it should be.  Because time, (and excess weight) go as they should.  In their own way.  Well, time anyway.  The weight thing takes more time and effort on my part.  But i can help it along a little!  And i'm trying!  :)  And i have another question while i'm here.  Why does gravity have to be a law??  Dang it!  Because if there's one law i could break.. it sure is that one!

                          I hope you're all having a wonderful Monday!  Peace, and i'll be back soon!
