Creating some space.

Week of August 14, 2006
I started a Travel Writing class this week; I am so sorry I did not listen to my Uncle Denver and start writing sooner because I am having a blast. One of the women in the class said that she plans to deduct her travel expenses once she becomes an accomplished travel writer. That's something I will definitely speak with my accountant about. To think, I could have sold articles about my trips to Paris, Prague, London, Vienna and Rome and deducted the travel expenses.

I saw the movie Lady in the Water this week. Forget what the critics have been saying. This was a good movie. M. Night Shyamalan finally deviated from his twist endings. Thank goodness because the twist in the last movie, The Village, was completely lame.

Lady in the Water is a fairy tale. Some of the terms certainly are strange (e.g. Narf), and the director certainly hammered his point home not to subtlety. However, the movie is good. I found it suspenseful and surprising. I recommend going to see it.

There are still no new hits on either my or my Yahoo! Dating online profiles. <sigh> I am glad I have plans next weekend to retake the photos. Perhaps the fact that I have lost weight and grown more hair will help draw more flies.

I started training for the marathon this weekend. It's amazing what a difference a year can make. Now that I already have one marathon under my belt, I found four miles easy to do. Last year at this time, I was quite worried.

We'll see how it goes. I still have not forgotten how emotionally and mentally drained I was after the marathon. At this point, my plan is to train up to 16 miles and only walk in half marathons. For the 2007 Los Angeles marathon, I will be meeting up with my mother at mile 13.
