I'm on Day Two of that cleanse I talked about. Currently drinking herbal tea saturated with simple syrup. Simple syrup is not part of the cleanse canon. I'm doin' it tho. None of you can stop me.
It's weird to opt out of solid foods and social eating. Vlad's currently finishing his graduate thesis, and he's not too hung up on food to begin with. So this cleanse has not been, and I don't anticipate it will be, disruptive relationship-wise.
Meditation is working. The effect is subtle and radical, and how can twelve minutes in the morning have an effect throughout the day, it just does. Like: it's the difference between freaking out or getting bogged down or taking something seriously, and just ... not. Just not taking it seriously. Not taking it personally.
What I'm saying is: a little bit of fasting, a little bit of meditating, a little bit of monk goes a long way. A little bit of monkey business goes a long way.
O stop! You love my puns! You love every single one.
