There's nothing like crawling into bed at night and having all clean sheets after taking a nice relaxing bubble bath.

Just when I think that the cold weather is about over with, I'm slapped with -20 fahrenheit wind chills.
February 26, 2001
The last basketball game of the season and I made a flying dive and bruise my hip. Hopefully it's not too swollen tomorrow.
February 25, 2001
I went for a jog through the snow wearing far too many clothes today. When I finally slowed to a walk at the end, I raised two fingers to just below my jawline and could feel my pulse throbbing in my neck.

My addiction is music. I buy too much of it. I've heard that admitting you have a problem is the first step to recovering, though.
On second thought, screw recovery. I could have worse addictions.

The woman said, "you make sure to be careful, it's slick out here." Then, she fell on her ass.

When I woke up to hit the snooze on my alarm this morning, a single crack of static electricity leapt from my finger to the button. It simultaneously shut off the alarm (without my finger touching the button) and woke me up instantly.

I had blanket on my bed and even wore socks when I went to sleep, but this morning it was so cold that I was shivering as soon as I stepped foot from my bed.

It's got a good rhythym, and you can really bug out to it.

I wish there were more big hills in the state where I live, because whenever I'm in a place with such things, hiking is such a blast.

I know this may sound really funny given the perception of it by many people, but Ethiopian food is really sort of sexy to eat. You sit there and eat everything without any utensils and it's fun feeding it to other people. I'd also recommend a glass of honey wine to drink.

The first time in awhile that I slept without setting any alarm and it was so nice to just be lazy for hours. Wasting valuable daylight? Hardly.
February 16, 2001
I think your ass would have a cramp in it too if you'd just driven for 7 hours straight.
February 15, 2001
I usually don't have such consuming cravings, but chocolate has been my damage of choice lately and today was no different.
February 14, 2001
A little less smug and cynical than normal on this day.
Okay, a lot less cynical, but a little sad anyway.
February 13, 2001
Sometimes when you're feeling a bit down, there's nothing like some seriously sad music to make you feel a bit better. One of my personal favorites is Henryk Gorecki's achingly beautiful Symphony #3 (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs).

Elbowed twice in the head during a basketball game. The first time, I thought my nose was broken and bleeding (fortunately it was neither), while the second time had me spitting up blood from a cut lip and gum. Yum.
February 11, 2001
The first time I've fallen in the snow this whole year and it totally caught me off guard. I was running to get my laundry in only a t-shirt and jeans with crap shoes (as I often do) when I turned the corner at the bottom of the stairs too fast and wiped out. My whole upper body went in, and I just got up and shook off, laughing.

I've been going through the musical moodswings lately. It's either dark and moody or hard and abrasive. Today, it's punk rock courtesy of Sweep The Leg Johnny.
February 9, 2001
I mentioned the ice, but now I feel that I need to mention the snow that came afterwards. 10 inches to be fairly precise, with windchills of about -20 degrees fahrenheit. Again, I've got to applaud this wacky weather.
February 8, 2001
Those little frozen pellets come flying down and sting my face and I just look up into the sky and try to keep a straight face, cause damn this state has a great weather sense of humour.
February 7, 2001
Dreary dreary weather today. Not quite cold or even rainy or anything, but the sky was overcast and sucked the life out of me and the smiles from everyone.
February 6, 2001
There were so many reasons that getting out of bed seemed like the worst idea ever this morning. Eventually, I did though, and finally stumbled into work in a daze that didn't want to go away.
February 5, 2001
Humans are wacky organisms. Wouldn't you tend to agree with me on that?
February 4, 2001
2 bubble baths in one day is none too many. Try not to get soap in your eyes, though.
February 3, 2001
12 bottles of wine + lots of friends + new apartment + UNO + tasty food treats + good music = hopefully a good time had by all. I dressed up like a little schoolboy, but didn't really act much like one as the night progressed.
February 2, 2001
Talking about movies is sort of an easy way out, but when the movie is an extraordinary one, I feel that it needs special mention. Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon is such a movie. You could tell it wasn't made by a big studio in the United States, because it was far too good.
February 1, 2001
The temperature inside my workplace was much warmer than it has been this week, and when I went outside into the extra cold air, it blew right through every layer of my clothing and chilled me to the bone.
