Moon ...

Er, Lunar Eclipse, not Lunar Ellipse. Anyway. Crisp, beautiful, in the early stages a hard edged shadow crept across its face. At full dark, it was like an overripe peach, painted deep red and amber. If it weren't for the wet humid air, I'd think we're due for a santa anna tomorrow... I'm not used to it being this clear at night. Easily the best eclipse I've seen yet... out of several.

The Phrontistery

Most definitely my favorite website of the day. I could spend hours crawling through it picking up interesting words! --> http://www.phrontistery.info/

Words and Changes: And, to follow up from the last entry, the words that were said and the changes made are these: "Replace me!" I'm moving on again, leaving the world of the full-time employeed, finally, after 3 and a quarter years. What's next? A mixed bag of things, more focus on artsy-fartsy stuff at the very least. When? Still uncertain, but hopefully sooner than later, depends on how the hunt for my successor goes! :)

Honesty check: Since the swearing off of chocolate, I've also managed to greatly reduce my nibbling of other types of refined sugar. I did nearly, crumble and grab a huge mocha chocolate chip cookies at lunch today, it sat there in it's wrapping by the register all heavy with its soft sweet sugary crunchy/gooey sinfulness. (I blame a visit to the doc earlier today left me kind of down and vulnerable to temptation.) I yearned for it through lunch... but did not yield. If I keep this up I'm lobbying for sainthood.

One of the best overviews of SecondLife history and culture (that I've seen so far) can be read *Here*.

I cheated today. Sort of. The Chicken Mole burrito is about the only thing I can still order at Elena's, the rest disagrees with me. Mole has chocolate in it. It does not, however, contribute to the obsessive cravings for chocolate that occur the day after having chocolate candy... the avoidance of which was the whole point of swearing off chocolate in the first place.

Unrelatedly, today is August 6th. Words were said which will result in changes.

More on that soon.

Too much fun... try Simpsonizing yourself at: http://simpsonizeme.com/

And yes... I'm still on the chocolate fast. Day 2 complete. Whee. Sigh.

Okay okay. Chocolate is a drug, a little one day turns into an urge for more the next day, followed by a craving, followed by an excess... Enough. Had too much yesterday. Today is August 2nd, 2007. I'm swearing chocolate off. And when the inevitable fall from grace occurs and I indulge in the evil sweetness of chocolate next, I'll blog my shame here for anyone to see. Wish me luck.
