This week, I was not so certain. It was the start of my abstention from wheat, cow dairy, sugar, fried food and cutting back on caffeine. Jesus fuck. Haven't felt that bad since I quit smoking. The sugar was killing me.
And I was totally worried I'd lose weight, but I'm so damn hungry that I'm eating way more than normal. And still not feeling satisfied because what I want is a CHOCOLATE BAR. Not a pear. Unless it's got a CHOCOLATE BAR melted onto it.
February is a busy month. The first of it is durtygurls this Sunday at venus envy. Funny, Debra Anderson was in my first and last creative writing class at York. She's got a book published and I'm umm, well, I hope you enjoy my weekly posts.
Other moments of note this week:
1) Started doing yoga. At the Rama Lotus, also known as the Rama Lama Ding Dong. I forget who I stole that from. A lot of people have a lot of bad things to say about the Rama Lama, but I gotta say, I didn't run into a lot of attitude. Maybe being in beginner classes helps. There *was* a lot of lululemon wear, which makes me a little bananas. $93 for a pair of workout pants? You've got to be fucking kidding me. And there was a very cute girl in my Thursday class.
2) Didn't check my email and got stood up for an interview with a CKCU host. If I had checked my email, I would have known she had cancelled. We've rescheduled for next Thurs. so if you're up at 8 am, give a listen to CKCU next Friday morning.
3) Had a great coffee with Matthew Firth, who totally re-energized me on the dirty days project i've been tossing around. I was going to make it into a chapbook, but I think I might actually put it together as a manuscript and shop it around. Check out the poems section for a couple samples.
