The Whistler's Dream

Everybody needs a dream...
Mine is to go to Oklahoma and play whistles for The Pioneer Woman. (Having been invited, not in a "creepy stalker" kind of way, for the record.) Heck, I'd play in a pup tent in the backyard for the joy of the cows and critters. What can I say? I'm a fan.

Writing in bed, and Beka editing by ear. Really. The ear typed some letters. Really.

As we settle in...

One thing I'm noticing this time through the process, that wasn't so much of a issue last time, is hunger... I seem to be hungry all the time, while last time, it wasn't much of a problem. I suspect that it's just going to take more time for my body to accept the fact that "this is all you get. Deal with it." And, after we get further into the groove of this thing, it should get easier.

It always amazes me how little our bodies can do well on. You'd think pushing myself down to 1000 calories would be serious starvation mode. But, after I adjust, it should be fine. Interesting, isn't it - in our days of huge portions, and over-the-top extravagance, that we can exist on so very much less. (Yes - I did make a transition from physical needs to material needs and even non-material needs. Nice of you to catch that. :-) If only I can find the wisdom and strength to apply my caloric reduction to other areas of life...

For example, my whistle collection. Huge. More than humans ought to be allowed to posess. ("Big collection. Big. Huge." Three gold stars to anyone who guesses what movie quote I based that on) On one hand, the idea of a collection is just that, to collect, right? On the other hand, these are instruments - meant to be played. When do I have time to play all of them? These are the kind of ponderables that tend to jump out when I'm thinking about simplifying things. No asnwers - just ponderables. (and ponderous ponderables at that...)

Time to simplify my time management by bringing this to a close. Have a wonderful and worshipful Sunday. :-D

Is that a take on A John Candy line from The Great Outdoors when he sees the "Big Bear...Big...Huge"?

Um... no. But good guess. .75 gold stars for the attempt. :-)

Iknow! I know! Drew Cary Whose Line Is It? :) :) :)

Um.. no. :-) But, I LOVE that show!!! Actually, the quote is from Pretty Woman, where Julia Roberts returns to the sales clerk that snubbed her the day before and says, "You work on commission, right? Big mistake. Big. Huge. I have to go shopping now..." Vicki was quoting that one for weeks after she first saw that movie. :-)
