It's too early for this crap. I get up in the morning, check my e mail and get a notice from the damn bank that they're closing my account. False alarm which I had to work out on the phone but what a pain.
Just took a very long walk through Berkeley and parts of Oakland, it was a beautiful day if a bit cold.
Last night I tried to go to my weight loss class but apparently Marty forgot to tell me it was cancelled due to the holiday so I started going back home but I heard someone moaning and sounding like they were in pain so I went to look and found some guy saying he'd been pepper sprayed and asking me to help him get home. We were only about a block from an emergency room and I tried to talk him into going there instead but this is how bad I am at trying to talk anybody into anything. He insisted on going home so I helped him over to this house a few blocks away. He said he lived there but he didn't have a key for some reason. He knocked on the window and a very old lady answered (and took her time doing it too) and she seemed really confused like she wasn't even sure who he was. He definitely wasn't lying about being pepper sprayed though, I had had to touch him in order to walk him back to that house and my hand really fucking hurt like it was burning up. I washed it and then put aloe vera gel on it but it still hurt. Roomie said baking soda would help so I tried that. It did help, thank fuck, it still hurts now but not anywhere near as much as it did last night.

Not much going on here, I went to the grocery store this morning and got a couple of things.
Went out for a burger and a long walk earlier this afternoon.
I went out earlier than usual this morning to go eat breakfast out and somebody had left a whole pumpkin cheesecake out in the hall. I know I'm on a diet but how often does an opportunity like that present itself so I ate a little piece (anyway I did a whole hour on the damn exercise bike later). The breakfast was good but the waitress kept trying to pick me up. No men ever are attracted to me except for really creepy crazy homeless guys. I hate this. It starts out very early with indoctrinating bullshit from Disney movies and how only the pretty princesses are ever going to be loved. And it never fucking stops.

Had some pumpkin spice tea earlier this morning but it doesn't seem to have woken me up much. The bar last night was cool, I'm definitely going to have to go back there at some point.
I'm going for a long walk in Berkeley later today.

Looking forward to checking out a bar I've walked by about a million times before and never been in.
Been having a very nice time over the past couple of days, I had drinks and dinner with some friends last night and went to hear some great live jazz earlier this afternoon. :)
