The weather's been crappy all week, but today it's bright and sunny out. This is the kind of day where, when I was a kid, my mother would throw us out of the house. So, now that I'm back from my workout, I'm going to go take a shower and get the hell out of the house for a while. Even if it's just to the back yard, or the deck. Mary called already to let me know that she's out with a friend, and probably will be for at least another hour or two, so I'm going to relax and take a notebook with me and write or something.

Needless to say, half way through typing the original entry, my desktop computer shut down, for no apparent reason. I'll have to pull it apart and clean out the fan, as siliconshaman suggested a while back.

I got a call twenty minutes after posting my last entry. It was Mary, inviting me to lunch with her friend. So, I hurried up and got dressed and went over to meet them at a local Mexican place. I know, Mexican food's not exactly on anyone's "diet", but you know, I've lost 20 lbs. already by cutting back, not snacking, and avoiding certain foods, so I must be doing something right.

After that, we went to Starbucks for coffee. That hadn't been in the original plan, but we were out and I wanted coffee, and I think it's important to patronize the places in which you own stock. Mary had a book that she read. I, of course, managed not to have anything: no book, no notebook and pen, nothing. So I sat patiently and listened to the voices in my head, and managed to get an idea for a story, the first part of which has been written and posted to Ghostletters. It's as close as I've come to "gaining inspiration from the Muse" in some time.
