Instead I barely left the couch. I went for a walk before the rain really started, to get some groceries. Bacon, tea, and chocolate: that kind of day. The shopping area on Hastings is the perfect distance away; it always takes about an hour round trip including a quick shopping, and I like to take as many different streets as possible; there's something to look at in every yard, garden, alleyway and window.
After that I camped out on the couch and watched half of the first season of Sons of Anarchy. So good! It kills me to watch TV with commercials now. Sure it feels indulgent and lazy to watch six episodes back-to-back, but nothing that was on real TV was as appealing as biker gangs and no commercials. I just wasn't in the mood for my current craft project and I had just finished my book and of course I could have been cleaning, but I think I need some serious products to help me tackle the bathtub. Anyone tried the Mr. Clean Magic Eraser? Obviously I still do see commercials as I have been brainwashed to think that what I really need is an overpriced sponge, then all my troubles will disappear. And I'll have more time for TV!
Also, later in the evening, Lost in Translation was on TV, with no commercials, and it made me nostalgic for the Scarlett Johansen of old. I'd forgotten how likable she was, before she focused solely on being lustable. It's a good movie, I think I'd forgotten that too.
Well, I'm hoping that this shortened week will bring me a burst of energy, resulting in more interesting posts. If anyone still reads this blog, maybe you're hoping that too!
