February 8 – Heidi Berry – Miracle

HeidiWhile I’m pretty much back in the swing of things exercise-wise, it’s slow-going with the eating better, and yes, less. Thursday, if you remember, was my day to get back on the stick. I’d already gotten three pretty good workouts in for the week, adding two more for Friday and Saturday, but I couldn’t start rethinking the food consumption on the day promised as I had to eat the leftover chicken taquitos, vegetable samosa and three-cheese pizza from the ex’s visit the day before. I also polished off what was left of a 20oz bottle of coke. That was a treat. I’m not drawn to soda, I drink a lot of seltzer, water, coffee no sugar, and the sweet coke flavor of my youth tasted good and provided some impressive belching that even woke Max from a deep sleep. So, I am not going to post my weight again for quite some time, which should please my cousin, who thought I was insane to do so in the first place.

As I said, the ex was over Wednesday and he came equipped with a backpack with an additional jacket and I don’t know what else inside, except for the sandwich-sized zip-lock baggie he produced from the pack that contained 17 CDs. “Where’re the covers,” I asked. “Yeah, and I don’t know how many of them actually work,” was his response. He wanted to play this one while I heated up the assorted of frozen aforementioned delicacies. I don’t know who Heidi Berry is, but I could tell immediately that this was not up my alley and it made me think back at a time when ex-2, with whom I had a minorly major relationship tried to set the mood with Enya. Not that there was any mood-setting attempts Wednesday, mind you. I listened to this CD that one time, and in fairness I put it on again this evening and noped my way through the beginning of each song. Heidi Berry had a few Celtic folky-type albums in the late 80s and 90s. This was her last in 1996 followed by a compilation.

As for the other naked CDs, we will only explore 14 of them as we are done with Heidi Berry, one is the Squeeze best of that my financially irresponsible friend had given me, and another is the Eurythmics best of CD that the ex had given me a long time ago along with my first, and still only CD player.

On a totally unrelated note, I love opening up a new notebook and this one feels really good. It’s Staples brand, and is 1-subject, college ruled as are all my notebooks, 100 sheets with a sturdy turquoise cover and crisp, clear lines. I like it. I should probably use the turquoise pen now. This one’s purple. I always have a black or dark blue pen as a back-up because sometimes you’re just not in a pastel kind of mood.
