I’m Going to the Movies Today

I saw these Christmas bulbs hanging on a tree on the upper west side the other day. It’s the little things. Little things like a shower, which I’m going to be able to take in a few minutes because there was no hot water here yesterday, YET AGAIN.

Other little things I have planned for my day: a movie with a friend, cat petting, a new Bones episode (and Fringe, and Grey’s Anatomy), good food will be had at some point, I’m just not sure what yet, I might take a walk after the movie, and I’ll have my camera of course so some picture taking, when I feed the birds I will have the pleasure of seeing that the food I left out for them yesterday was eaten, I’ll be making a list of the things I want to look for at the Municipal Archives and that will make me happy, knowing I’ll be going on a treasure hunt soon and oh god I just remembered!!

Did you all see that Times article about sitting and watching tv or reading, or working?? Apparently if you sit for a few hours every day, even if you exercise every day all that sitting greatly increases your chances of dying from anything. It cancels the exercise out. I am so screwed.

  1. Me too. I’m trying to incorporate new habits, like if I watch TV for an hour I get up and exercise for a minute or two.
