Day 2698: What’s eating you?

One thousand, six hundred and four days ago (I‘M counting, okay?), I created the post Day 1094: What are you eating/What’s eating you.

Is it eating you that

  • I like to start posts by referring to my previous posts?
  • Your weight has changed during the pandemic because of what you’re eating?
  • People aren’t wearing masks?
  • Bicyclists behind you are still yelling “BEHIND YOU!” even though that might spread the coronavirus?
  • The wrong people are constantly apologizing?
  • There is such disparity in who is suffering more from the pandemic?
  • It’s difficult to know who to believe these days?
  • There’s so much uncertainty about the future?
  • Pets have such short life spans?
  • People don’t seem to know what a span of six feet is?
  • So many people support corrupt and incompetent leaders?
  • So many familiar things are disappearing?
  • The good is often hidden from view?
  • I take and share so many photos?
















Here‘s “What’s Eating You?” from the BBC production of The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy:

Whatever’s eating me, a little gratitude helps me face the day ahead.

Day 1918: Number Thoughts

Here are some number thoughts:

  1. “Number thoughts” could mean thoughts about numbers OR thoughts that are more numb than others.
  2. Another thought is that the news these days can be numbing.
  3. The number in today’s title is the year that both my late parents were born.
  4. 2 days ago I tweeted these 19 words about numbers: “Doing your own taxes gives you the oppprtunity to calculate — with real numbers — how stupid you are about money.”
  5. I thought that tweet was fine but now I see that the 8th word is a mistake.
  6. My thoughts have now turned to  the number of mistakes I’ve made in my life.
  7. My thoughts about mistakes could be number (rather than more worried).
  8. One of the 1st thoughts I had this morning was to imagine my thoughts floating by in a number of beautiful clouds in a clear blue sky.
  9. A number of people have told me they find that exercise of imagining thoughts in clouds very helpful.
  10. I took a number of photos yesterday.









Even though our cat Harley has seen me a  number of times, he still thought I was an intruder when I returned home yesterday after spending a number of joyful hours with my ex-in-laws. I had that thought because he hissed at me through the window.

Here’s the 5th suggestion from YouTube about “Number Thoughts”:

Here’s one of a number of thoughts posted on YouTube about that clip from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy:

At the very moment she says ’42’, guess how many minutes into the movie that is. Yep, I officially have no life.

I’m looking forward to a number of thoughts about today’s post.

No matter how numb a number of my thoughts might be, I always remember to end with thanks to all who helped me create today’s post and — of course! — YOU.
