Must Be The Weekend

I can't think of anything to write about. I have some ideas but I don't feel like putting in the effort to prepare them. I have better things to do, like nothing at all. Must be the weekend.

Pardon my stream of consciousness. Thoughts rolling around my head without rhyme or reason. Maybe I could write, that's boring. Or what, I've done that before.

Updates! Nobody wants to read them, but at least I'm saying something. Which is slightly better than saying nothing.

Went to the gym today. That's 12 times in the last 3 weeks alone. Not alone -- Mary's been going too, every time in fact. Alone, as in merely. In merely 3 weeks, 12 trips. That's pretty good, I think. Lifted a total of 12,000 pounds today. That's probably approximately two of some large wild animal, but I don't feel like looking it up. Let's see, if last week's total (13,600 lbs.) was two White Rhinoceroses, then this week could be two White Rhinoceroses if one of them is on a diet.

Speaking of diets, I'm still on one myself. At last check, I was down 12 pounds on the year. Only 50 more to go! Slowly but surely. Hopefully. Tonight, though, fish sticks and French fries. Happy "cheating"! Must be the weekend.

Still reading War And Peace while working out at the gym. Have gotten 11% of the way through it so far. Would have gotten farther, but I'm also reading an autobiography of David "Big Papi" Ortiz (baseball player); a true crime book about the Green River Killer; a young adult book about a teenage princess and her talking tiara; a British adventure/thriller novel; and also, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo. What can I say, I can't stay focused on any one book at a time for too long.

I can't think of anything else to say. At least this was short. And so is the weekend. So that's it. Yeah, I know. Sorry.


  1. What do you think of dragon tattoo?

    1. So far so good, Steph. I'm not quite 200 pages into it yet, but I'm digging the story, the writing style, etc. I really like Henning Mankell's Kurt Wallander series, and this reminds me of those (they are both Swedish), but it's distinctively different in other ways that I like too.
