Cheat! Cheat! Cheat! I cheat on myfuckingself! I ran out of groceries, so, well, it's a beautiful day here in CA (no snow, folks :)) so I said, I'll go for a nice drive, then go to this excellent grocery place, treat myself to some wine and steak (besides the usual fruit, rice, bread, etc.), and, well, go back home, tinker a little bit with my lecture for tomorrow, maybe play the guitar (maybe write?), and --yeah I'll stop. I did do the groceries. I did buy steak. I did buy wine. But as soon as I parked, I almost jumped onto my letterbox: nothing. That freaking mailbox had been in my mind all the time, from this morning in yoga, to the time when I was discussing my students's papers, to the time when I was picking the freaking steak. OK, phone messages: nope. E-mail: Rien, Monsieur, rien. C'est la vie.
Re: [orangegirl] things you can do instead of obsessively reloading this board:
I have to get myself a dog. (But I never wanted one after my one and only dog died, years ago. I think the mourning period should be over, now, though).
And, well, Alexandria, I will start doing the rub-the-pencils thing.
