Roman

(no subject)

I'm watching e. The Screen Actors Guild nominations. It's interesting how In the Bedroom rose out of obscurity and is now contending for everything. I really liked the film but know it isn't the only good one out there, and wonder about others like "Waking Life" that are totally ignored. But it's always that way, of course, even though these awards are, I think, more meaningful than the Oscars, because they are awarded by peers.

Many little fires to put out. Plans to check, blue cards to sign, people to talk to. I am trying to resolve some questions about affordable housing now. It doesn't get easier.

wine and intervals

After three days without any video workouts I didn't feel like doing one tonight. But I talked myself into it by telling myself I could have a glass of wine afterwards. Which I did. White wine and a bag of microwave popcorn. Actually, tasted pretty good together. And I don't mind the mild buzz. It could be addictive. But I think, somehow, I am not going to get addicted at this point in my life. It takes a lot for me to develop addictions to things like exercise videos. It would take more to get addicted to alcohol. Too much history, family history. Not to mention I am not selfish enough. I have come to the conclusion that alcoholics are fundamentally selfish people. That is, that's one of their personality traits.
