I’ve printed out 953 pages today. I feel like I should find another 47 to print just to make it a nice even 1000.

It’s been a busy day. We got some Christmas shopping done (yay us!) and went to Office Depot to buy ALL THE PAPER IN THE WORLD, which I have used to print out the nearly-1000 pages of text today. We also bought a more studly 3-hole punch than the ones we currently own, because hey, tax writeoff! And also useful for putting scripts together. It’s really a pain in the ass to punch holes 3 pages at a time in a 60 page script.

V. thirsty. bbiam.

I have noticed that if I’m paying more attention to what my body actually wants, that nearly all of the time I feel like eating, I’m actually thirsty. Result: drinking lots more water and definitely down 2 pounds since last Friday.

Still v. thirsty. bbiaam.

Sloshy now.

Did I mention we got a new cat tree? We’ve been saying for erm the better part of a year, that we needed one, and finally we went and got one. The cats seem to approve. Lucy sat on it and licked it, anyway.

We got about 6 inches of snow yesterday/last night. Chanti was in puppy heaven. :) Leaping about and chasing snowballs that I threw and having the time of her puppy life. :) Last night I put her out and she sat there for well over an hour, staring intently at the cottonwood tree with all the birds in it. Silly, silly dog. :)

Man, I’m tired of spam mail.

And I guess that’s about all I’ve got to say. I think I’ll balance the checkbook now, ’cause I really know how to have fun. :)

  1. i just saw this and thought, hmm, how topically appropriate.
    1. 75% of Americans are chronically dehydrated. (Likely applies to half the world population.)
    2. In 37% of Americans, the thirst mechanism is so weak that it is often mistaken for hunger.

    3. Even MILD dehydration will slow down one’s metabolism as much as 3%.

    4. One glass of water will shut down midnight hunger pangs for almost 100% of the dieters studied in a U-Washington study.

    5. Lack of water, the #1 trigger of daytime fatigue.

    6. Preliminary research indicates that 8-10 glasses of water a day could significantly ease back and joint pain for up to 80% of sufferers.
    7. A mere 2% drop in body water can trigger fuzzy short-term memory, trouble with basic math, and difficulty focusing on the computer screen or on a printed page.

    8. Drinking 5 glasses of water daily decreases the risk of colon cancer by 45%, plus it can slash the risk of breast cancer by 79%, and one is 50% less likely to develop bladder cancer.
    Are you drinking the amount of water you should every day?

  2. I was gonna comment on Deirdre’s number 7, but – where was I? Oh, yeah, I was gonna say something about something, but I think I’m too hungry.

    AND – what does bbiam mean?

  3. And, oh, yeah, wow! that’s a lot of pages.

    You figure on writing 4,000 words a day, huh? Isn’t that like twice what most authors consider a very productive day?

  4. Mary Anne: come to my house! :)

    Deirdre: yah, I’ve read those statistics before. Scary.

    Dad: bbiam means ‘be back in a minute’. And I donno what most authors consider a very productive day, but 4K looks like a nice number to *me*!
