Another day, and more juices. This “morning” (I want everyone to remember my morning is 5:00 pm at night) I woke up and made breakfast juice. This juice was three kale leaves, one cucumber, and one apple. I’ve made this juice before, I like it. It is green, refreshing, not too bitter from the kale. A great begin your day juice. I get a ton of energy from the green juices I’ve been noticing. I like it.
I indulged one of my favorite addictions, Farmville. If you are a fellow addict, you understand. After I harvested, fed my animals, and sold some things, I decided to eat the last two slices of bread in my home in an egg sandwich. I officially have no bread and no intentions of buying any! I will still eat a hard-boiled egg from time to time, but no more bread.
After my last sandwich I finished a movie I started yesterday, “Something’s Gotta Give” featuring one of my all time favorite actors, Jack Nicholson.
Jack is Harry, who is a 63 year old self made man, is dating Ericka’s, Diane Keaton’s, daughter played by Amanda Peet. Harry only dates women below thirty. Harry and the daughter go out to Ericka’s beach house to have a romantic weekend and Ericka and her sister are there. Ericka is a self made play wright, very successful, and hates the fact older men are always after younger women, I.E. Harry. There is some silliness about finding Harry there, some jokes made at Harry’s expense, then Harry has a heart attack and has been ordered not to travel. Amanda goes back to the city where Harry is left with Ericka to fall in love with her. Add some Keanu Reeves as another love interest for Diane Keaton and you have a cute rom-com with some of my favorite actors and actresses, Reeves not included.
To me, the romance feels a touch forced. Jack and Diane don’t really have too much chemistry to me, but they are both such good actors, that when romantic things aren’t happening the film is very funny. Is a major chick flick. I give it 4 out of 5. Oh, and I would pick an old Jack Nicholson over a young Keanu any day. Jack has so much more swagger. This movie has made me want to go watch some of his classics now, like The Shining, One flew over the Cuckoo’s nest, or The Departed.
After that, I did some yoga, then 50 sit up’s while holding my 8 pound kettle bell. My hamstrings are killing me after doing a kettle bell work out yesterday. Those work outs can really wear your body out.
I read some Catch 22 while drinking some water. There was a passage I liked, I’ve decided to include about the chaplain.
So many things were testing his faith. There was the Bible, of course, but the Bible was a book, and so were Bleak House, Treasure Island, Ethan Frome, and The Last of the Mohicans. Did it indeed seem probable, as he had once overheard Dunbar ask, that the answers to the riddles of creation would be supplied by people too ignorant to understand the mechanics of rainfall? Had Almighty God, in all His infinite wisdom, really been afraid that men six thousand years ago would succeed in building a tower to heaven? Where the devil was heaven? Was it up? Down? There was no up or down in a finite but expanding universe in which even the vast, burning, dazzling, majestic sun was in a state of progressive decay that would eventually destroy the earth too.
I liked that passage. It feels so powerful to me. Sums up a lot of my own thoughts.
My second juice of the day has been made of Turnip greens, 3 whole carrots, and one orange. It is very good, but I love anything with a whole bunch of carrots in it.
Here is a link about Turnip greens:
And here is a link to a 25 minute yoga work out on youtube. Before you click, know that the man in the video is ridiculous, but I like his moves.
