The collage continues

Oh no I forgot to post last night! Don't know where my head was. Oh yes, I remember now, I was finishing up a book.

So I worked on finding collage pictures all weekend, it was very interesting. I'm not finished yet... I'll probably end up with too many, knowing me. I have a lot of old Oprah magazines, so I also kept stopping to read or re-read old articles. One was a Martha Beck article about people who have trouble stopping one activity and moving on to another. Like... stopping whatever you're doing at night and going to bed? Ahem... ahem.... If it sounds like you, you can read the article here. I can't say I've changed my ways yet, but the article keeps popping in my head when I know I need to stop doing Activity A and move on to Activity B.

I ripped out all sorts of things to blog about here. An Ellen Burstyn article about the movie Alice Doesn't Live Here Anymore, lessons from a vocal trainer, various style articles, etc. It's all very exciting.

I also had some interesting thoughts that as usual I'm too chickenadoodle to share too publicly. One thing that's better about Livejournal is you can have locked and unlocked posts--the locked ones only being for people you "approve" to you read your posts. You can lock an entire Blogger blog, but I wouldn't want to do that. Well, I might yet figure something out.

I have to go work on my CV now. Then tonight it's Spaghetti Monday. When my parents still lived in town, for one year or so they lived closer to me, and I would pop by after class on Tuesdays for "Spaghetti Tuesday." The folks have been in BC for several years now, but last week we tried instituting Spaghetti Monday via phone.

And then later tonight I'd like to catch up on my blog reading, so I will hopefully see you all on the other side of the fence. Latah homes!
