Reading platon...

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

Readin Platon for that university course... and canīt say that I am too impressed. Which also makes me feel ridiculous, or maybe stupid, I feel like a person too ordinary not to get caugt by "big thoughts". I do understand that I should put those thoughts int to concept of the world as it was, what bothers me is that is so...chatty...lots of lots of words to come to the conlusions... I want to scream across the centuries "Hey! Get to the point!"

We had a lot of very wet snow coming down yesterday, I have not shovelled it and will need to take time for it as the weather forecast say colder in a couple of days... think I will hurry with work today and get home early - it also says some more snow might fall tomorrow. I will at least be getting the exercise I need....

I set the alarm for this morning, I rarely do as I decided many years ago that if I am to live with the uncertainty that selfemployment gives, I shall at least enjoy the privilige of waking up without being forced to... and usualy I wake up around six but that has been messed up because I have not been disciplined about going to bed. I will probably get very tired this afternoon but wll hopefully get through without falling asleep on the sofa. Tonight is theatre rehearsal night so I will be home by nine and then I will try to got to bed instead of falling for the temptation to relax in front of the teve first...
Having lunch with a friend today, looking forward to it. It is a buffet kind of thing and rather expensive so the devil will probably tell me to eat a lot to get my moneys worth... emoticon

    Hubby says that is not worth the price for me because I rarely go back but I do eat desert if we go. They have the best hot fudge cake....darn chocolate. Who invented it anyway? He should be shot LOL. Have a great evening and have fun.

    Oh, watch the buffet. I went to one last week and started out will a full plate salad. After that I had a cup of soup. I ate one piece of steak, chicken and some cooked carrots. After maintaining control, I allowed myself to have a piece of no sugar added chocolate cake. I enjoyed every bite of it and the next day, I was okay on the scale. Take care.

    Careful with the snow; I enjoyed shoveling this past weekend; it was so pretty out and I felt good so did more than necessary. Then yesterday I put a bin of yarn on the sofa--sorting through for project possibilites. Couldn't straighten back up! Eventually did, able to do some stretches and walking and get it worked out but it's still sore and I'm moving carefully--but mobile! :)
As for the buffet, I avoid them whenever possible for obvious reasons. I hope you have some good choices on it. Don't give your power away. Nothing I can tell you on choices that you don't already know.
I understand about the reading. I don't think all the classics are classics because they are necessarily enjoyable reading. It is what it is. Be well.

    One thing you are certainly NOT is ' a person too ordinary' - you have 'big thoughts' of your own, MP, and therefore possibly have less patience with froth.

Also - you are not a dustbin to be filled with foodstuff - however good it may be - or indeed expensive. I hope that it's good quality and that you enjoy that quality rather than quantity.

Have fun at your rehearsal . . . AND . . . try and get into bed at a reasonable time - one less thing to worry about or to stop you in your tracks.

    Are you really getting your money's worth if the extra food isn't wanted and might make you feel bad afterwards? Measure the value by how it tastes, how good a time you had with your friend, and whether you are left feeling happily satisfied.
