Gaining weight

I ought to refrain from potato chips and the fresh choco mint ice cream at my favorite cafe.

Bummer, apparently sending Japanese from my phone doesn't get interpreted properly by Blogger.

Don't read below if at work.
being on vacation rocks.

rainy days

Sometimes I feel really good on rainy days. There's something oddly nostalgic about today. I also got a delightful amount of sleep, so that probably helps my good mood. Plus, I got messages from my friend who's in town, so I at least know that I've been leaving messages at the right hotel. I was worried for a bit.

Now, to research for an hour and then go wait for her call.

my black woolen coat appears to have been sampled by moths. I now understand why my mother smothers her closet with those chemical mothballs. Considering how infrequently she wears most of her clothing, it really makes sense. I shall have to do it to protect my suits and new coat.

I would be more upset about my old black coat, but the style is pretty outdated, and it was too long anyway, plus I just bought a lovely new coat that I adore, so I'm not too upset. Also, I wore the black coat a lot last winter, when it was freezing. Still, it's a bit of a waste. I hope the clothes I put in storage in CA are sufficiently protected by that box of chemical mothballs I put with them. I really like that blue ballgown, although I've only worn it once. Maybe I'll wear it on Halloween sometime.

chewing gum, clothes vs. tv

Is great for getting rid of the aftertaste of garlic and onions.

Bought a new coat and pair of shoes. Arguably didn't need a new coat, but have been wanting one for a while. It's lovely and really soft.
