So all this week I’ve been staying in and watching movies. I’m broke as hell from all the insanity over the last two weeks so I’m just spending a week in exile. So far it’s been good. I’ve gotten lots of sleep, watched a bunch of movies (Amelie, The Count of Monte Cristo, Benny and Joon, The Court Jester, Garden State, Love Actually, bunch of Aqua Teen Hunger Force) and saved money. I actually haven’t spent a single dollar since Sunday night when I filled my gas tank.
On top of that, it’s made it easy to get back on my diet. This morning I was 208, which I believe is a first. For the last few months I have been holding around 209 which has been good. I’ve been eating healthy most of the time but not hesitating to pig out now and then and I was able to maintain. I’d still like to be under 200, so hopefully I can do that in the next few weeks and then maintain it there. I’d really like to be 180, but I don’t think I can do that without working out a lot more than I want to.
So that’s all good, but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been bored out of my mind. I am a social creature. Much more so than I was a few years ago. Part of that just comes from the fact that I don’t have a game that is demanding all my attention. When I was playing EverQuest regularly I could easily spend a week without seeing another person in real life and not even notice. Now-a-days I start getting ansy after like 4 hours. Heh.
So I have one more night to go. Friday night is going to be a whole different story, perhaps. Once again I will have money and will be looking to friendly bartenders to take it away from me. Or maybe I’ll just stay home and watch movies again. I really am saving a lot of money…
And I need a damn truck.
