Tuesday, May 20
Nothing much to say today. Worked late last night, then went home to bag up the trash
and do nothing - the one night this week I'm not insanely busy, other than
tonight (but of course I have a date with my TV tonight, season finale of 24).
Called Steev to see if he wanted to take a walk over
to the Chopper with me, oddly enough he was in the middle of doing sit-ups and
I was eating veggies #3, 4 and 5 (5 a day!) while we made plans to go over to
get Ben & Jerry's and smokes. We sat on my stoop for a while talking, for a
change I did most of the listening while we pondered the mysteries of dating
and getting to know people... I told him he should take charge and let his
feelings been known. It's not always easy but people should say what's on their
mind, I think. I don't know. I don't feel qualified to give advice in that area
anymore but I've always got a free ear and a shoulder for anyone who needs one.
Had a pretty killer backache last night so I took a codeine
and hopped in bed to watch CSI:
I think I might go rollerblading or something after work, then do some writing before 24 comes on. Steev and I discussed the importance of working at creative pursuits on a regular basis rather than just waiting for the moment to strike... I told him that I had been thinking about spending a certain amount of time every day in order to hone my craft and he agreed, which was cool. Besides, I need to start spending more time on this stuff, particularly painting, if I'm ever going to have my own show at the gallery.
I'm tired. Can't think, can't write, just want to focus on my work.
I'm tired, so very tired...
