Operation 365 Poem: day 154…No Booze

No Booze

No booze
Makes you feel strong

No booze
Lets you live long

No booze
Means no hangover

No booze
Energizes you like Sharipova

No booze
Means no drunk texts

No booze
Leaves your memory unperplexed

No booze
Provides more money in your pocket

No booze
Allows (technically) sex to sky rocket

No booze
Means no 4am truffle brie fries

No booze
Eliminates no flirting with guys

No booze
Translates my fun level to = null

No booze
Is a load of bull!

365 ONE: day 138…Missing Cards and No Booze Criteria

Do you know what I realized?

I am waiting for a bunch of “cards”…my Green Card, my new health insurance card, my new British Airways credit card – all with promises of arrival, all late, all missing!

Ha – just thought of another card – my mum sent me a birthday card last year that never got to me either – another card haha! Well let’s hope the other cards I’m waiting for now don’t follow that path!!


I finally got around to actually sitting down and looking at my calendar and my schedule as I had an earlier thought in an earlier blog entry about whether I had drunk any alcohol on my 365, or not.



I can’t believe it – my earlier thought was true! I started 365 on January 9th with a week of detox of only fruit and veg, and then there was like three or four days, and then I found out I was pregnant!!

I looked at the calendar to see if there were anything in those three or four days but I was in rehearsals until past 10pm and busy, and nothing like a dinner or bar meeting or anything was scheduled, so it turns out I seriously have not had an ounce of booze in what now is 138 days!!

Which means now for real I need to consider this….

Do I add this officially to my 365? Do I make no alcohol the 12th criteria on my 365 Challenge? But then I would have to go all the way until January 8th, 2013!

Well, being pregnant, that would take me to September 22nd or thereabouts so that would already bring me to something like 250 days! So yeah that leaves like 100 plus days but if I am breastfeeding I am not supposed to be drinking anyway, so maybe it’s not so unrealistic after all??

Or am I going to want that shot of tequila after I give birth?? Or if I stop breastfeeding before January 9th or something??

But I would have gone so far though already.

I need to think.

I won’t announce it until I think about this, or I guess I can even wait and see how I feel.

What do you guys think?

365 ONE: day 126….Look Down Folks!

To go along the lines of yesterday’s blog about looking down while you walk, and how in NYC, I think especially, you should be aware of where you are stepping…

I was walking yesterday and doing my usual looking down as I walk, and right there in front of me was money! Lying there were $3!! Three $1 bills!!

The funny thing was I arrived at the money right as this other group was arriving at the money, so we essentially got there at the same time! However, I bend down and picked them up a split second before they had the urge to. So there I was stopped with money in my hand saying “What?” out loud, as this other family was also stopped looking at the money in my hand too.

And then there was silence.


Was I supposed to SHARE my $3 with them?? What, here have a dollar just because we arrived at the same time??!!

Finders Keepers Losers Weepers….isn’t that the saying!!! Right??

It was just a super awkward moment, but they should have bent down quicker than me and grabbed it!!!!

So after what felt like hours, with both of us at a standstill on the sidewalk, I did the whole searching around and looking up at the houses to see if it belonged to anyone, and as I did so, moved a little away in my search, which then allowed them to finally leave me and walk on! Kicking themselves! HAHA!!

You see?? Look down folks, there’s money around!! 🙂
