Did I press the button?
I think I pressed the button … I think.
If I didn’t press the button, that would be bad.
I wouldn’t like that. It would put me behind schedule.
The button was probably pressed, but I better make sure.
Please, please, please let me have pressed the button!!!
I sure hope I pressed the button.
Yes! I pressed the button.
I’m sure glad I have a rice cooker instead of cooking rice in a regular pot that I have to watch.
It’s a lot less stressful.
note: I like most buttons, but not red buttons … except for Red Buttons.
double note: when I iron I never press buttons … I navigate around them.
what I’m listening to now # 49: definitely not reason.

Stress means different things to different people;
I can’t stress this enough.
note: it’s always gondolas and cable-cars! … I’d feel safer in a cable-plane.
Today I thought … if I build a house out of rulers I probably don’t need to use a measuring tape. I’m not an engineer, so I don’t know if I should go with inch rulers or metric ones.

Just a quick update to say that things here are still quite normal.
The gasoline stations are being supplied with gas a little more regularly than 4 or 5 days ago, but there are still long line-ups/queues for it.
I can walk most places I really need to go, so I’ll probably have forgotten how to drive and will be in better shape in another couple weeks.
There were donation boxes at many stores the day after the earthquake and tsunami, but I noticed that people were collecting money for the aid effort outside of supermarkets today. A bit of public guilt seems to loosen up people’s pocket books a bit … especially when they are carting groceries to their cars.
The crisis at the nuclear reactors is definitely worrying, but I’m actually more concerned about the hundreds of thousand of people who are spending day after day in evacuation centres up north in less than ideal circumstances.
The Government is making plans to relocate many of them to facilities in unaffected areas further south.
I will be glad to get back to work on Monday as just sitting around isn’t very good really.
note: “Stress” is my middle name, … but “No” is my first name, so I’m okay.
double note: apologies to S. Le and others for not captioning the picture on “An Another Update“. If I had a mind, I’d say it slipped it.
Today I realized that I see more people I know when I walk places.

Transcendental Medication would be placebholistic … something.
note: my mantra record has a skip in it!
double note: you’ll just have to find what’s important in the Transcendental Meditation textbook; they don’t seem to stress anything.
triple note: You are Sanskritting me!!!
Q. How far can you look into yourself?
A. Halfway … because then you’re looking out of yourself! … just like that dog running into the forest crap.
quintuple note: I know how to reduce stress … “stres”
sextuple note: a potato guru is a meditator.
mental note: .
septuple note: cursor over the pictures time … everytime.
It’s the little details that count … in blogging … and murder scenes.

Today I was under so much pressure, I turned into a diamond for a few hours.
The “World is Turning”! I think my milk is turning too!
I’ll try to do one of these a day, until I run out of Kelly Pettit song titles! He’s got 4 CDs, so it should take a while.
“World is Turning” from Kelly Pettit’s ”FUEL”.
