celebrating 45 years of "meh"

January 14, 2003 – morning

Quickie blog while I download a 29 MB database….

Wt: 144.8. Now this is just wrong…I lost 4 lbs in a day? Granted, I didn’t have a full dinner last night, but four pounds? Now I’m wondering if I need a new scale or not.

Mood: perplexed

Work docket: Already did Static section, downloading obituary database now for weekly count, will probably redesign some sections, and work on PERL.

Lunch Plans: Lean Cuisine Southern Beef Tips. Should be delightful.

Afternoon: Return Christmas to storage. Vacuum (sp?) and do laundry.

Evening: I’m in the mood to bake something. I have to try and peel myself away from The Sims Online — although Jump Java & Wail is turning out to be a very cute little coffeeshop.

Blogger was down last night, else I would have posted that due to my 2.5 hours of sleep the night before, I crashed on the chaise at 5:00 pm, not to rouse until 8:00 pm, thereby missing my opportunity to go to the gym.

Nasty war-dream last night. The neighborhood where I grew up was being attacked by North Koreans. Swarms of infantry setting fire to the houses. NOT fun. Our neighbors all evacuated beforehand, and we were last to know. Well, I’ve always been behind on trends. (smirk)

Back to work!

January 13 2003 – lunch

Lunchtime! Had Healthy Choice Grilled Chicken Breast and Mashed Potatoes. Am still triumphantly on healthy eating plan. I still can’t believe I did 5 lbs in 5 days. That’s, as the kiddies say, wack. Then again….I DID go to PF Chang for lunch on Saturday…went to Panera last night…indulged in some Oreos… But 5 pounds?? That’s been on my mind all morning.

You’d think lugging the PERL Black book around all day would work off the weight. :/

Still obsessing about how to eat, I stumbled across the Newsweek cover story on how the food pyramid has failed us all. I feel..so…used…

January 13, 2003 – midnight

This is bad. This is very bad.

You see the time? You know what time I start work in the mornings? (5:30) You know what time I usually go to sleep? (About 3 hours ago.) You know what that makes me? Screwed.

Basically, if I manage to hop in bed and fall asleep in the next 3 minutes, I will have MAXIMUM 4 hours sleep. If I try to tough it out and stay up, then I’ll end up being exhausted at 3 am.

Not to mention I feel guilty for calling out sick on Friday — I think that’s keeping me awake. I mean…I get 10 sick days a year. I never use more than 6. What kind of work ethic do I have if I feel crummy for staying home when I feel like crap? Actually, what kind of life ethic do I have?

OK…at least I have SOME idea as to what I’m wearing tomorrow. That’ll help.
