By this time tomorrow, I would have completed the month-long extra challenge Kiks and I set. His challenge was this one and mine was: No watching of "looted" movies and/or TV series. No reading of ebooks or listening to audiobooks.
Compared to what Kiks set out for himself, mine is mundane. But with the first four episodes of Prison Break Season 4, the first episode of House MD Season 4, the men's diving and men's gymnastics finals of the Beijing Olympics, and a host of movies already on my hard disk and just a click away, to resist watching is almost painful.
Habits, by nature, are very hard to break. Especially when one is faced by various pressures from almost all sides, the temptation to slide into an old, convenient and comfortable habit becomes an extra, extra challenge.
I am not planning to have a movie marathon anytime soon. For now, it is enough for me to at least let down my guard and give in to the prospect of being a couch potato for two hours at most in any given day.
One month is not enough to make me say that I've broken the habit. But at least, it does tell me that I can.
I just wonder when I can be ready to say the same thing with smoking, drinking coffee, and getting cold feet in front of a really, REALLY cute guy.
To help a friend of a friend, I answered his survey.
If you also wish to do so, just go to this link: http://com.cityu.edu.hk/netporn/
If you have more time and want to help more, he also asked if you can post the link in your blog/s.
This is purely voluntary. No free porn as giveaways.
So if you can, lend a hand. Give to the "porn". (Kidding, it's a serious academic study.)
I slept with a bitch last night. Here she is.
Banci. Our vegetarian dog.
Before you get any nasty ideas about what we did, I just let her sleep on my bed last night. The fur was a bit distracting but at least she did not snore.
I did wake up with some scratches.
Yesterday, I decided to let it/him go for a while. Another habit I am trying to break.
Today, I am having withdrawal symptoms.
