I left the house by 8:45 this morning and missed my tram and had to wait 7 minutes. I couldn’t buy the boxes I wanted to buy. The lady said they didn’t have me anymore and sent me to the other store they had a 5-minute walk away. I got there and they didn’t have them. Later today, when I went back into the first store to buy a peppermill, I happened to see the very boxes I wanted in the middle of the store. It’s silly that I didn’t see them but for that chick not to know that they were in her small store is pathetic. There were way too many people at 3 different haircut stores, like 5 people waiting at each one and so I said, F-it.
I went to the cheap supermarket and got all kinds of goodies, including a bunch of “Be Light” food which they don’t seem to have too much of at the supermarket next to me. I got low-fat sausage, salami, cheese, ravioli, yoghurt. I bought red grapes. My fruit variety has not been too good the past years, mostly apples and bananas, sometimes oranges or a kiwi. But I want to start eating more fruits and vegetables and so I was stoked to see some Dole red grapes for a good price.
I went for a jog, not to my normal route along the river but this time to the gym because I thought I had left my mp3 player there but I didn’t so I had the whole jog back without music too. I almost always take music with me when I jog. This particular jog was 30 minutes but normally I do 35-37. I have now done some exercised 4 of the past 6 days. I’d like to keep that going.
I found my mp3 player, somehow in a nook of a corner in my new work bag (I told you it was too big! haha) that I had already searched twice. Earlier I returned a phone to the electronics store. I’d bought it on Friday thinking that I wanted a new cell phone but then decided that mycurrent phone deserved to live its life. This is something I have learned living in Germany. I don’t necessarily buy a new version of something until the old one breaks. That’s somethign I used to do without thinking about it but I haven’t bought a vaccuum, toaster, blender, dvd, or tv in years.
I cleaned out my closet, the lower part that had piles of clothes for different seasons. I put them in the new boxes I bought and my winter jackets and and beanies and gloves and scarves (I found a lost scarf when cleaning the living room, it was a Xmas gift a couple of years ago, so stoked to have it back. I also typed a few pages of Chapter 3 The Newropean. I’ve got the first 50 pages of my new novel finished. I’m stoked on that.
Dinner will be a salad with iceberg lettuce, red pepper, pickles, green beans, and tuna fish with some steamed carrots on the side and a baguette. But now it’s time for some grapes! And it’s not even 3:50pm. And right now the news is starting on Howard Stern, live. I love it.
