Leap Year [60/365]

As you may have noticed, I’ve numbered these daily posts **/365. I could have jumped today, since it’s the 29th of February, but I won’t … I can «take a day off» some time later instead.

In Sweden, the leap day used to be on the 24th of February, up until 1996. I wasn’t even aware of the change until now. They moved it to the 29th. The fact that they had it on the 24th, may go back to the Roman Catholic Church … there’s LOTS to read about it in Wikipedia.

 

[6/365]

I’ve only done five posts in the postaday-thing and already I’m having second thoughts. Not because I’m fed up with it — quite the opposite; I enjoy it! Often the first thought is the best, though. When I started thinking about this  I was meaning to do it in a separate blog.

This morning it feels as if I’ll bore my followers to death with this daily post in the long run. Then the whole discussion arises: Am I doing this for myself or for others? Today I’ll give myself some time to think about this.

This quote, I loved right away the first time I heard it, in the TV-show Criminal Minds

Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. ~Cyril Connolly~

I really liked yesterday’s post in Purpleborough.

 

Dislike

Was browsing blogs last night when I came across something new [to me]: As soon as I clicked on one post, music started playing! The sound on my computer was set rather loud too, so it was a bit of a shocker.

Can’t say I liked having that forced upon me — I prefer choices.

In the grocery store

While waiting in the check-out line, I noticed a young girl who was obviously anorectic. It’s summer, with hot weather, so people dress accordingly … there was no doubt.

The young cashier girl was morbidly obese.

I kept wondering what their thoughts were, when they looked at each other.

It was equally sad to look at them both.
