5 Things I Did Today

1. Went to the Montrose Farmers' Market
2. Wished it would cool down so I could remove my invasive Jupiter's Beard
3. Swapped my flannel sheets for cotton ones; Spring is here
4. Watched a show on the Food Network that made me really, really hungry
5. Had a drink for the first time in a month

My Weekends

When I lived in NYC, my goal most weekends was to do nothing. Not make plans. Do as little as possible. I thought that the less I did, the slower time would pass.

Nowadays I want to jam pack my weekends with activity. Gardening, errands, friends, movies, touristy stuff. When I don't have plans I feel depressed. It's like a need a distraction from the constant spectre of work, Monday.

Darwin: Marry, Not Marry

More Darwin papers are up on the internets. Work stuff and personal stuff, including his pro-con list on getting married. Among the pros: "Constant companion, (& friend in old age) who will feel interested in one- object to be beloved & played with. — better than a dog anyhow." And the cons: "fatness & idleness — Anxiety & responsibility — less money for books".

The New Hillary?

I hit my saturation point on the Democratic race a few weeks ago. I couldn't take it anymore and tuned out. Until last night. I caught some of the debate and it was pretty lame, no surprise. The most interesting thing was Hillary's new face. Is it just me or has she gotten work done? Her eyes looked bigger, deeper set. Her forehead didn't wrinkle, even when she got worked up.

This bummed me out. Movie stars and news anchors, ok. Part of their job is to look good. But politicians? I suppose it's too risky for high profile female politicians to age naturally. I'm pretty sure Nancy Pelosi has had something done. Meanwhile, McCain and other old fogies can get ghostly pale and saggy and no one cares.

I haven't gone outside since coming in to work. I haven't eaten anything all day, other than a piece of garlic bread that someone in my department brought in. I prepared frantically for a meeting that ended up being rescheduled. I was told on the dl that my boss might have a "Come to Jesus" conversation with me. Today has been awesome.

Your Gayest Look

This happened last Wednesday on Jay Leno. Watch as Jay talks to Ryan Phillippe about how he played an openly gay character on One Life to Live, and then asks Ryan to give the camera his gayest look. Ryan didn't think it was funny, and neither do a lot of other people.
