Had Enough Of Computers

Had Enough Of Computers

The writing and posting of this blog entry will be my only foray to my PC today. I need to get away from the screen for a few hours after a week doing nothing else but watching cursors and thinking technology. One needs to step away.

I forwent my usual Saturday morning gander to take a long lie in my bed. Boy, I needed it. By 9:30pm last night my body felt like it was 3am. I lasted another hour and put out the light and that was me until 10:30 this morning.

As a result I never made it to the gig I was going to cover. When I checked with the venue they confirmed the band wouldn’t be on until 10:30pm, and I knew right then I wouldn’t be going. I was just too exhausted to go trooping up town to stand in a club, on my own, with loads of folk on a night out. Call it age if you like; c’est la vie.

After a long hot shower a short while ago and some coffee, I’m feeling much better but really cannot face sitting in front of the screen today. I’m feeling a bit run down, as though a cold is imminent, but I’ve taken some multi-vitamin pills and am enjoying a glass of tomato juice, which I normally only do as part of a Bloody Mary so I’m using all of my concentration to remind myself no vodka exists in the glass.

I intend to listen to the rest of the football (St. Mirren are drawing 0-0 at Fir Park against Motherwell), do some reading, and write something worthwhile into my moleskin notebook. Then I’ll think about dinner—anything can happen with that the mood I’m in!

    From time to time I find a food that really brings me
    around. The weekend soups are a bit wordy to explain,
    but the past year microwaving about 15 frozen cherries
    a day has has great positive health effects. Apparently
    cherry juice is great too, but the extra dye and fiber
    is good for me. All kings of tweeks in food. The mind
    brightens to the notebook after a nice Pho with lime
    and SriRacha sauce.
    Best luck with this, the draggy season.
