today is beautiful and HOT. 98 degrees. I just spent the last few hours starting another book outside on our hill in the blazing hot sun. Margaret Atwood's "Cat's Eye". The very first page goes like this:

"Time is not a line but a dimension, like the dimensions of space. If you can bend space you can bend time also, and if you knew enough and could move faster than light you could travel backward in time and exist in two places at once... But I began to then think of time as having a shape, something you could see, like a series of liquid transparencies, one laid on top of another. You don't look back along time but down through it, like water. Sometimes this comes to the surface, sometimes that, sometimes nothing. Nothing goes away"

And the rest of the book is about an artist at the end of her career, with each chapter going back and forth between times in her life, telling all her different stories. She is such a beautiful writer. I'm pretty sure I'm just going to read all of her works until I run out. I'm making Henry read "Oryx and Crake" right now, since it's kind of science-fictiony.

I have decided to not drink for one whole week, starting today. *Unless* there is a special social occasion with potential friends. Let's see what happens.

Well, I'm off to the gym, and then to do yoga with Henry when he gets home. I've pretty much completely stopped doing yoga, because of my suckiness, and my entire body is starting to hurt. It's weird that only when you stop doing yoga you realize how much it benefits you. Well, that's not true, but it certainly highlights the difference.

Henry got me a new camera bag since James took his back last year. It's a backpack (yay! So I can hike around and not worry about lugging a bag on my shoulder), fits all my bodies, lenses, accessories, and has straps for my tripod at the bottom. It's a bag that should have been a couple hundred bucks but he found it for $40. Oh, how I love his obsession with looking online for good deals. This time, haha.

We find out tonight whether we get our cats. Henry wants to name Missy Kaylee, since we both hate the name Missy. Kaylee is better than Missy. But. I'm getting ahead of myself. Everybody send good thoughts!!

The last couple jobs I applied for are 1) to be a photographer for a stupid photo agency that does school pics, sports teams photos, etc. (it would be not a lot of money, but easy, and I'd get to play with kids and cameras), and 2) a production assistant for the APA (which is more of a real job, but boring, and far away). We shall see..
