Paul sent me this photo yesterday. It's from last fall. I miss my boys so much it hurts.

In girum imus nocte et consumimur igni.

Last I checked, my vampire has 11911 in blood, and 15051 in the bank.

That's neat :) I dig palindromes!

I've been smoking too often of late. Not more than one or two, and not every day, but it's still too often. It's been available, and I've been under a lot of stress. As much as I enjoy it, and enjoy being able to have "just one," I need to back off, lest I become addicted again. If I have one at Amanda's birthday party tonight, I will not have one tomorrow no matter what. (ADDENDUM: I had one at the party, did not have any the following day, and it was no big deal.)

Talkin' 'bout the tobacco, btw. I'm not often tempted by other things these days. Too busy :)

I'm back to not liking my job so much, awesome new title notwithstanding. I've been working 10+ hour days for NOTHING in recent weeks it would seem. Enough of that nonsense! I'm not going to get myself so emotionally involved in things here anymore. It's a recipe for disaster. I am cool, calm and collected... and OUTTA HERE at 5pm (erm, 5:30 today for obvious reasons). That's not to say I won't stay late... just that it will be the exception rather than the rule.

I wonder what my bliss is? I ought to be following it.

Oh, yeah. I am, in a manner of speaking. See photo. ;)

Amazon.com and Toys 'R Us have an excellent deal on board games-- basically, big clearance sale, AND buy one get one free!

I got the $40 20th anniversary edition of Trivial pursuit and a game of Boggle for ~$20, and Scattergories and Electronic Catch Phrase for ~$25!

That's over $100 worth of games for under $45.

Go to Amazon.com, and visit Toys & Games before Saturday, April 10.

I have no time for LJ these days. I should probably cut down me friends list (or at least remove some of the busier feeds, like BBC and /.), but I'm just waiting it out for for now. I'd just end up adding everyone back once my time freed up (assuming it ever does). You guys are addicting!

Sorry if I've missed something important in your world. It may be some time 'til I get back into things here... feel free to drop me a line if you want :)

send me mail

Be well and happy until my return. I'll keep posting photos from Toronto and the UK periodically 'til then, and maybe a random entry here and there. *hugs*

* Please note: this entry has no footnotes.

I'm feeling all kinds of: dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep

ldy From: ldy Date: April 7th, 2004 09:20 pm (UTC) (permalink)
Oh, not even that much. When I do indulge it's only one or two, but it's not every day.

Nothin' to throw away... I haven't bought any, and certainly don't plan to. Ever.

But your point is well taken :) *hugs*

I love the Led Zeppelin shirt, and I have a yin-yang necklace just like his!
ldy From: ldy Date: April 8th, 2004 06:14 am (UTC) (permalink)
Cool! I'm so glad he's not into hip-hop and rap, and wearing scary clothes. Not that I'd love him any less or anything... but it would be a lot harder to relate!

Thanks for the Toys R Us tip, heading to Amazon immediately! I've been needing that Trivial Pursuit forever.

Hope you get some bliss soooooon!

I had a friend that used to race bicycles back in the day. He was my Pal in Drome.....
ldy From: ldy Date: April 8th, 2004 06:15 am (UTC) (permalink)
Did he ever know whether he was coming or going?
inspectorjury From: inspectorjury Date: April 8th, 2004 07:03 am (UTC) (permalink)
Naw he kept going in circles till he became a big.. Do I really need to finish that? LOL

I'm loving that photo of you! You look radiant. So beautimous!
ldy From: ldy Date: April 8th, 2004 06:16 am (UTC) (permalink)
Gawsh, thanks! I think issa scary photo of me (or at least not a very good one)!

Don't tell my sweetie, but I want to marry your icon.

What a lovely, lovely picture. :)
ldy From: ldy Date: April 8th, 2004 06:17 am (UTC) (permalink)
Thank you :)

It makes me all achy. In that good way :)

Cut the cigs, not the BBC! (That's my motto and I'm sticking to it.)

I understand the need to cut back on your friends list, but how long does it take to read the BBC headlines that remind you what's going on in the larger world? Even if you take the time to read some of the full articles, they're not long.
ldy From: ldy Date: April 7th, 2004 09:34 pm (UTC) (permalink)
Well, right now I'm not reading much of anything on my friends list, anyway. But 550 entries fly by on my friends page each 24-hour period, and something's gotta give!

You're right though. It probably won't be the BBC!
serendipity From: serendipity Date: April 7th, 2004 09:51 pm (UTC) (permalink)
Hooray for the BBC!
ldy From: ldy Date: April 8th, 2004 06:20 am (UTC) (permalink)
Yes indeedy!

They seem slightly less objective since Bush and Blair began having, you know, feelings for each other... but overall, I much prefer them to any US news media. Their world news especially is outstanding!

i wish i would have never ever started smoking!
ldy From: ldy Date: April 8th, 2004 06:24 am (UTC) (permalink)
Me, too. I grew up with it, then smoked over a pack a day for over 20 years.

I'm keeping a close eye on my behaviour. Monkeyshines are all well and good, but I'm not inviting that monkey back to stay. *hugs*

If you are a figment of my imagination, it is a lovely figment and I don't want it to go away.

Such a sweet picture!
