Today I:

  • had a whole wheat bagel with fake cream cheese and nutritional yeast for breakfast with white tea
  • was up and jogging/walking by 6:15 am*
  • am surprisingly alert, nevertheless
  • really got the writing bug afterwards... but then I had to go to work
  • am having vegan veggie soup, salad, and potato chips for lunch
(SRP1) Bet Me by Jennifer Crusie (2004) 391 pgs. (finished 06/11/06)
Zaftig actuary mets gorgeous man with commitment phobia and a tendency to compulsively make bets with his friends on things, such as asking her for dinner, etc. Could he be doing it for more than the money? I'm betting the next Jennifer Crusie book I pick up will just as good as this one, since so far she has consistently written rounded characters whose motivations actually make sense, a rare phenom. in the Romance genre. It's also a fun summer read. A-

This is actually the first book I completed this month. The initials in parenthesis mean "Summer Reading Program, Book 1", since yesterday's post was technically book two (SRP2). My goal for the SRP is to read 12 books, with a bonus of reading The Worm in the Bud:The World of Victorian Sexuality by Ronald Pearsall. (The book is 672 pages, so that should be a challenge.) I have also given myself the unofficial rule that half of the books need to be nonfiction. Fortunately, I'm already doing alright on that score. There are a lot of books on domestic sanitation out there, just waiting for me to pick them up.

Knitting
That's right, I knit, don't I? Well, not much has been happening this week in that area. I did wind the CTH yarn my Secret Pal sent me into a ball at S'nB last night with the aid of knitcake (who I still can't believe is moving to Seattle this weekend. knitcake, you have to go to Capitol Hill and eat at The Globe for me. I still yearn for their biscuits and gravy. Also, see something at The Paramount. It's a movie palace. I saw a whole slew of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton films there, with live organ accompaniment when a touring group was passing through. They probably have something worthwhile going on.)

Last night, I:
  • ate some sauteed mushed up veggie burgers with onions and ketchup (not the evening's highlight)
  • had a bag of chips and a soy steamer at S'nB
  • watched Hello Again
*in some really weak rain and strong wind.

I will go, both sound good. And I will soon be catching up on your writing.
