Simple Pleasures

I have realized something. Writing takes energy. I could be using this energy to do an aerobics tape, walk on a treadmill, or do yoga. But instead I sit here and try to put some words together that maybe sound remotely interesting.

Oh, who am I kidding? If I wasn’t doing this, I’d be watching Big Brother on Tivo or taking a nap. No, I’m really not that healthy for being Miss Healthypants. And I’m also not very exciting.

You know what, though? I like being boring. One of my favorite things to do is to take a walk. Who does that? Old people, that’s who.

I also like to lie on the couch and watch t.v. I’m guessing that’s a typical old person’s activity, too.

My apologies to any of you young’uns who, like me, enjoy a simple walk or a simple lie on the couch.

Ah, a simple lie on the couch. That’s what I’m talkin’ ‘bout.

I have also discovered the simple joy of using a sugar scrub.* Have any of you tried this? It’s the most remarkable feeling. You rub this grainy, painful mix across your dry, raw knuckles (sounds great already, doesn’t it?) and then you rinse it off—this is where the fun part is—and the oil in the mix coats your dry hands like the wonderful feeling of lying under a soft blanket. On the couch. ‘Cause that’s what I like to do.


*My favorite sugar scrub is Bath and Body Works’ Aromatherapy Sugar Scrub in Lavender-Vanilla. Not only does it feel great, but it smells wonderful and puts me into a nice dreamy sleep. Yay!

We MUST get together and do the Kangoo thing at Crunch.

I'm so glad you blog everyday.

Yeah, it does take energy...but it's worth it. At least to me. And you're not old.

Love me some sugar scrub. Except it always puts me in the mood to eat dessert.

I don't like girly scrubs like that.

However, Lorraine bought a bar of scratchy soap for me. I LOVED that stuff but can't find it.

Dooder, how was Kangoo? You were going to a Kangoo class this morning, right?

Rainey, writing is worth it--it's fun! :) And so is sugar scrub. Buck doesn't know what he's talking about. (Buck, we can get you some more of that scratchy soap at Trader Joe's.)
