Life in general is still awesome, but today deserves special recognition because all of my favorite fruits and vegetables are on sale at QFC!  In fact, many of the foods I regularly purchase are on sale right now, so I’m probably going to make a second trip in the near future.  I don’t like driving to places I can walk, so I had to be careful not to get more than I can carry home.  That isn’t much, considering my little pea-shooters.

Also, the weather is still amazing, so I was happy to have an excuse to go out for a walk.  It rained yesterday for the first time in ages, and the weather report all but warned us to settle in for at least a week of clouds.  But no… we’ve got sunshine!  Good thing too, since I need to take some pictures with my car right now.

When I left for the store this morning, I decided to leave my phone at home.  I’ve long lamented that we’re so attached to those things that we can’t imagine life without them.  And yet I still felt a small tinge of danger in leaving home without my lifeline to the world, like it wasn’t something billions of people have been doing for centuries.  Perhaps it was less scary and more just plain weird.

But I knew where I was going, I didn’t need to talk to anyone, and my iPod shuffle is lighter.  Of course, almost immediately after I got to the store, I saw avocados on sale and wanted to call Susan to see if there was anything I could bring to her house for dinner tonight.  It would have sounded more like, “May I have the pleasure of teaching someone in Seattle the proper way to make guacamole?”

The food in Seattle is second to none, but I haven’t had good guac in God knows how long.

Guide to Getting It On! Guide to Getting It On! by Paul Joannides
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Written in a pleasant, conversational tone. Very informative and nearly all-encompassing. Probably best used as a reference. But since I’m me, I’m still trying to read it cover-to-cover.

And let us mark this momentous day, the day I finished The Guide to Getting It On! I purchased this book under the direction of my ex when we were still together… three years ago. I’ve been picking it up and putting it down periodically not due to anything lacking, but because at 850 pages, it’s friggin’ heavy!

I strongly recommend this book to anyone who is sexually active. It was worth every minute I spent reading it, and I will probably continue referring to it from time to time. I can’t even begin to go into specific parts; all I can say is CHECK OUT THIS BOOK!

I feel like I just finished reading The Bible!

PlatKat.com has moved, and she’s getting a facelift.  Much like its creator, the site may not always be nice to look at first thing in the morning, but there’s a helluva lot of content!  I’m hoping I can get all the other stuff locked and loaded before too long.  (Yes, there’s other stuff.  It’s like all I do is write!)

While I go through the process of relearning why I didn’t try to do web design for a living, I plan to take intermittent breaks to continue busting on Belltown vicariously through this guy and WANT WANT WANTING this:

(I’m a size medium, by the way.)

I’m in the process of moving everything over to WordPress, oh and also starting a business, but I wanted to let people know about Groupon and this is probably the best, least intrusive way to do so.

Groupon sends you a deal per day in your city. Right after I joined, I bought two $25 gift cards to a nearby restaurant that I frequent for $10 each. I thought that was pretty decent for the next time I feel like going out!

Anyway, if you want to join, follow this link so I can get some money the first time you use it. Thanks a bunch!
