It’s the little things that make the day fun.

Today I went to a meeting at iVillage accompanied by my colleague Justin. He’s right up there at the top of my list of favored coworkers as we have a natural rapport.

After the meeting five of us crammed into the teeny elevator in the iVillage building. We hit the lobby button. Then we went down two floors, then up three, then up a few more, then down a few. This went on for a few minutes while we debated whether or not we should get off and try to catch another car in the hopes that only this one was malfunctioning. Finally two people bailed out, freeing up some space. It was when we had a little more room we noticed that there were TWO button panels in that miniscule car and Justin was leaning on the second one, effectively pushing random buttons as he shifted his weight.

We’re closing day five of the sugar fast. I’m honestly surprised that it’s not more difficult. I think I’m eating too much fat now, but one thing at a time. It’s mostly good fats like avocado and nuts, but I still want to hold it down a bit more. One huge and encouraging change I’ve noticed is that my mid-afternoon slump isn’t happening. Usually some time between two and three I get so tired I can hardly function. No more. Now I look at the clock and think: Is it already six????

Last night Damon and I went to see Brokeback Mountain. What can I say that hasn’t already been said? I loved its simplicity the same way I loved the simplicity of The Straight Story. It was beautiful and romantic and sad in a deep way. It deserves all the hoo ha it generated. The shot of Heath Ledger wreathed in fireworks should assure that cinematographer a lifetime of work.

We’re working our way through season three of Little House on the Prairie courtesy of Netflix and the library. Damon rolls his eyes, but whenever I put the disc in he seems to find his way to the couch. It’s that way.

Okay, pumpkin time. I’m ready for bed.

    I saw Tom Key do part of ‘The Screwtape Letters’ in his C.S. Lewis one-man show in January.
    There’s a GREAT book on tape of Screwtape read by John Cleese.

    What perfect timing! I was just asking a friend today for recommendations for some books on tape.

    Jeremy Irons reading the unabridged ‘Lolita’ may be the single best book on tape I’ve ever heard.
