I keep making things explode in my mother’s microwave. I think that qualifies as a bad habit. Its not intentional, its due to the fact that Mumsy’s microwave is about a thousand times more powerful than mine and I keep grossly overestimating the amount of time needed to zap coffee.
The coffee habit has gotten out of control because A) there is really good coffee here. I’ve been craving D & D coffee since I moved away, and now there’s a freezer full of it. B) The twinnies are pretty much not sleeping at all.
I was having coffee with a bagel, and it wasn’t my first one. This leads me to another bad habit, pigging out at my Mum’s house. She stocks it so well I tend to think of it as an all you can eat buffet. I have to knock it off but I don’t want to.
This leads me to the phone habit. I have a habit of leaving my phone in weird places, dropping it, etc. These actions seem to have a direct correlation between the amount of sleep I get. Since I’m not getting any sleep, I lose my phone a million times a day. After stuffing my mouth with bagels and coffee, I was searching for it and to my horror remembered that I had left it in the pocket of a shirt I had just put in the washing machine! I fished it out and dried it off, and it turns on and still has all my numbers, but the sound seems to not work anymore. This is what happens when one bad habit leads to another.
I did indulge some good habits as well yesterday. I went ice skating on the lake in front of the house and had a blast. We bribed my brother to watch the twins, and zoomed all over the lake. It was great. I always ice skate every chance I get. It reminds me of being a kid, when I used to skate all the time. I never really got any good at it, but who cares, its still fun as hell. There were animal tracks all over the lake and we had fun figuring out who had skated the ice before us: fox, rabbit, deer, etc. I love the sound the blades make when they cut across the ice. I love how blue the sky is in contrast to the snow. I love how the wind blows and swirls the snow of the ice like dust storms in the desert. Winter is so cool.
