Hercules

Force of July

Ah, now that's what you call a three day weekend! More or less, that is. I didn't do a whole lot.

Friday was the 4th of July and, really, I only celebrated by reading an issue of American Dream and eating Stephen Colbert's Americone Dream. I also got new running shoes, my old ones have no heels.

I did my usual Saturday and Sunday workouts, but since there was no Tai Chi, I decided to take a walk to the park. It's over a mile away from me, and I can't get there by any public transportation, really, so I haven't visited it before. It's a nice place, too bad the weather stunk.

I also started playing the second Kingdom Hearts game, which I got off eBay on Impulse Buy Day (which, for me, was June 23rd). I've only played 3 or 4 hours of it, and it's slow to start, but I like it. Plus I pigged out on junk food...ice cream, donuts, pizza, and the dreaded caramel pecanabun! But now it's back to my casseroles and vegetable juice. It's nice to have weekends like this every once in a while.
