2. Today I was going to go to Savers and/or Goodwill because of various sales, but when I actually got to the town that had them I realized, you know what? I don't want to shop right now. Shopping would not make me happy. I am happy with the amount of things I have this week. What I'd really rather do with my perfect-weather afternoon is take a walk and write in my journal. So even though the addicted part of my brain was screaming, "HOW DARE YOU PASS UP A RARE CHANCE TO GET SOME NICE NEW SUMMER CLOTHING FOR HALF OFF," I did. And it felt amazing.
3. Right now, my addicted brain is also telling me it's time to turn on Friends. But I think the lesson today is that I should ignore that feeling and instead watch one of the things I'm always lamenting I have no time to watch during daylight, like X-Files. I also have no fewer than 6 movies checked out of the library I could start on before work sucks me under again.
4. Also, I know I am WAY out of touch with X-Files, but having watched about 5 random episodes in the middle of season 5, it is extremely weird to me that Mulder is being Mr. Skeptic/Reasonable Explanations Apply all over the place while Scully is open to all the possibilities of the universe. What the damn hell happened to him this year? Or have I just remembered the premise of this whole show wrong??
p.s. I have yet to see any significant physical affection between them and I know I'm not targeting their best episodes, but that is also very weird.
