My day (Wednesday)

I'm between summer school and fall classes so I'm sleeping later than usual. I woke up around 11, and debated whether to walk down to Jackson's Java or get in the car and run some errands. In my heart of hearts what I wanted to do was sit around and watch TV. I was leaning against walking down to Jackson's Java because I was not in  a mood for anything that required effort.

Then a commercial came on TV with G. Gordon Liddy encouraging people to buy gold.  I pondered that he is 78 years old and much trimmer and much more energetic than I am at 51.  I realized that was never going to change if I didn't get any exercise, so I walked down to Jackson's Java.  I was going to get one of their breakfast sandwiches, but they were out of some of the ingredients, so I was forced into the healthier choice of a glorious morning muffin. I may yet  catch up with G. Gordon Liddy.

That evening I had dinner with queenjoni .  She suggested a place called The Dish in the Plaza/Midwood area. I'd never been there before. She described it as "country cooking with a twist". She was about right...it was an old style diner atmosphere and menu (right down to the checkered tablecloths), but with a few more spices and ingredients in the meals than your really old diners have. Every dish comes with a deviled egg, which is a nice little trademark touch. It's right down the street from The Penguin, which I think is a good thing. Competing with them, it will be a while before they become trendy.

I bought some powerball tickets with some friends of mine. I had already bought some earlier, but since the jackpot was $250M, I figured it was worth it. I was wrong of course. The drawing has been held and someone in South Carolina won. So it's back to reality until the next great big jackpot. This is a good thing of course. I know that G. Gordon Liddy didn't get to be so trim and energetic from daydreaming about easy riches!

You know, it's never too late to get fit. Although I wished I had gotten serious about that when younger. Like, as a teenager!

Ah yes, if I won a million dollars, the first thing I'd do is...buy a car. And some driving lessons.

If I had ten million, I'd start my own private school.
