So serious lately...

..but there are good things going on too.
Slept in this morning, luxuriously.
Stood for a long time under the hot shower water, beating down on my neck and shoulders, so soothing.
Got sparkly clean.
Sat afterwards in front of my computer, catching up on my online comics, feeling little dropletts of water from my hair tracing their way down my bare back.
Reflected on last night: the lit candle and tiki torch, sitting on my deck at night, the unexpected pleasure of 4 girlfriends over to keep me company.
Went upstairs, lay on my bed, wrapping my naked body around my kitten who had stolen my usual spot in the nest.
Petted the kitten until she purred and squirmed in ecstasy, marveled at her soft fur against my skin.
Got dressed, putting on my new capris with their bright happy floral pattern.
Left the tag on, because I still haven't decided if bright-floral is really "me".
Ate a bowl of oatmeal and drank a diet coke, leisurely reading my friends' journals and updating my own.

Awhile ago I added lip balm addiction to my lists of interests, and was startled to see it didn't turn into a link. Surely I am not the only one addicted to lip balm? No, that can't be: I've known other people with similar fixations. hmmm..... Oh I see, there are 258 people who are interested in lip balm. I'm just the only one to admit I have a problem. Well that's okay. I can handle being the only one.
