I Went Camping/Ode to a Wastrel

It was awesome. I climbed and I hiked and I slept in a tent. I played disc golf and Rummikub.I drank river water, and I ate meat cooked in a pit. I escaped the clutches of a scorpion sleeping under my head. I watched a dog learn to swim, and I saw a few of my friends get naked in freezing water. I listened to Paul Simon and The Cure. I packed too much, drank too much, and talked too much. I saw the exact center of California. I never smelled so bad in my life. I hated leaving.

Smoking Update & Stuff

It's been a little over 8 months since I quit smoking. The worst thing I ever did was to start smoking, but the 2nd worst thing I ever did was to quit. It's been an absolute nightmare. The always feeling like I'm missing something. The depression. And, no, I'm not OK. It's enough to make you want to start again...

Anyway,on a side note, someone sent me an email the other day asking that I put up some "personal" type info about myself (as if falling eyebrows isn't enough) and generally I don't like to do that sort of thing, but I read an article somewhere about how you can tell alot about people by their "stuff", so read into it what you will...but here goes... On a recent trip to Barnes and Noble, I bought: Running & knitting & science magazines, several books about physics and mathematics and an algebra book (thought it looked like good brain exercise), and a glass of passion tea on ice with a spinach and feta pretzel - yum. A friend of mine recently gave me a William Shatner album - which is awesome in it's hilarity and extreme darkness (thanks, J!). I have a fake tree and a fan in my bedroom, 35 different kinds of perfume in my bathroom, a slightly dusty blender in my kitchen, a papasan chair in my living room, and art on every wall. Things I have recently borrowed from people: lunch money (thanks, D), Steven Hawking books (again, thanks, J!), 2 Dumas novels (which I have yet to start) & several other various books from C-MoB (thank you!), power drill (thanks to C'sworth!). Things I would save while running out of the house if it were on fire: my computer tower, iPod, knitting case, several paintings and all the shoes I could fridge has in it: crunchy all natural peanut butter, canola mayo, ginger tea, Japanese ice cream and alot of frozen broccoli. I currently own and use 4 pairs of sunglasses, 3 alarm clocks, and not enough book shelves. And I can't find my DVD of AVP grrr....I'm tired - that's enough for now. Oh but wait...there's more. I own exactly zero cigarettes. There you go.

I am dumb.

The things I finally learned today:
1. Katherine and Audrey Hepburn were not related. At all. In any way. Mind blowing...
2. Australia is bigger than it looks on maps and is actually almost the size of the U.S. For reals?
3. And here's the kicker: Capers are vegetables and are *not* from the sea. Wow.
I am dumb.

I've been sooo busy...

...playing with my hair. Clearly. (see below for inspirations) But that's not the point. The point is I'm announcing that I should be posting AT LEAST once a week now as I am having a schedule change and therefore I will have a little more time to get back on track. Some updates: My weight is back where it was before I started Body for Life (so just shoot me), the pain in my arm(s) is NOT from knitting, but is a nasty by-product of some meds I've been taking (bye bye pillios), this week's Heroes RAWKED, my eyebrows are pretty much intact right now, and guess who needs new shoes...
