Yes, that’s right: I’m on jury duty at the moment. Fortunately I got an interesting case (THAT I CAN’T TALK ABOUT, WHICH IS KILLING ME), so it’s not completely mind-numbing.
In the meantime, I’ve been trying to figure out what I want to write about here. It’s funny: since I haven’t been writing, my food neuroses are much quieter. When I don’t spend time every day thinking about them, my eating and exercise get easier, both mentally and scheduling-wise. I dropped a few pounds just before ShoWest by adhering to the “Sort-of-Like-When-I-Was-In-College-But-Without-the-Crazy-Part” diet, and a central component of that was to stop thinking about it so much.
Does that make sense? It’s like I spend so much time THINKING about it that when it comes time to DO something, I’m already tired. I feel like I’ve already spent so much time on it that I can’t bear to spend any more. And when I don’t think about it so much, I have energy to do something about it.
I’m not sure what I’m going to do about this. It’s a puzzlement, as they say (sing?).
