What to do, what to do ....

The hardest part about not smoking right now? Figuring out what to do with myself. I'm at work (of course) and right about now I would normally be taking a leisurely break outside and there's no real reason to go outside. I really wish I had free reign over the fitness center in the middle of the night when everyone's asleep and there's nothing going on. But I don't .... so it's watching tv on my ipad and playing stupid games on Facebook and obsessing over low-carb food porn. Yeah yeah yeah .... I'll probably be going back to LCHF although not immediately because that whole money issue is still an issue. In a couple of weeks, though, I should be able to do some good stocking up on stuff. I hope. In so many ways it would be so easy to just keep on keeping on with 99 cents boxes of pasta and 89 cent jars of spaghetti sauce .... but the pasta doesn't satisfy me hardly at all and I end up eating waaaaaay too much of it and then feeling like butt. John doesn't even really like pasta much so it'll no hardship for him if I stop buying it. Blah. I really kinda want to go hunt down one of the guys in one of the smoking rooms and ask to bum a fag. (He's Scottish so he'll understand.) But I won't. Maybe if I go back to reading it'll take my mind off things. I'm just over half-way through Joe Hill's Horns and I'm absolutely loving it! When I'm done with it I think I'll have to get my hands on some of his other things. Eventually. And I'll definitely be seeing the movie after it comes out this Halloween. Of course, the movie trailer is how I found out about the book ... and I found about the movie because it stars Daniel Radcliffe (you know -- Harry Potter?) and Juno Temple (who, for me, will always be Celia from St Trinian's).
But it's hard for me to read at work when I'm already tired because it tends to make me more tired ... and now that I'm thinking about St. Trinian's maybe I'll just watch that instead. At least the first one.
Maybe the second, too, if everyone stays asleep and behaving themselves long enough!
 
Or maybe I'll just stay distracted by YouTube trailers ....
