morning babble: 3-Day Fast begins / A bad Dunkin moment / Time Management with Oliver Burkeman

morning babble / Tuesday 11-08-22

This is the scribble that leads to the babble. Sometimes, it gets tidied up; but other times, not so much. When all else fails: watch the video!

Welcome to Tuesday – Go Vote! Tomorrow is a favorite day – all the political signs get taken down AND all the TV political commercials go away – yesssssssssssssssssss.

3-Day Fast is underway / I can eat again on Thursday at 6:42PM / My Dunkin streak of Cookie Butter Cold Brew ends at 5 days in a row. BUT – the one made for me yesterday was horrible. Well, it was still good, but compared to my prior 4 days. I was so bummed. It was a bad Dunkin location. We hit there around 3:15pm – they close at 5pm. Already – no donuts, muffins, bagels, nothing was available. The dude looked so mad that we walked in and kept talking on his phone the entire time taking the order. The actual drink lacked the cookie crumbles on top of the foam. AND – they didn’t have the proper lid that you drink through. No, they gave you the one with the hole in the center (Coolatta?) and told us to get a straw. You don’t want to enjoy this beverage that way. I removed the top and enjoyed it that way because you want a sip of the cookie cream on top prior to the cold brew. Using the straw – it doesn’t work that way. If that was my first one . . . I think my streak would have been 1.

54 days until EXIT PLAN


I have the meditation app called “Waking Up” from Sam Harris – author, philosopher, podcaster, not the singer.

Several months ago, I purchased it for the year, because I was doing the meditate every day goal in July. That was a good month – nice and chill.

Within the app, Sam does interviews, but he also has guests put out a series on a certain topic. Oliver Burkeman put together this series called “Time Management for Mortals” – I gobbled that up as he helps us “end our struggle with time.”

“Need to learn to say no to things that you do want to do” – Oliver Burkeman.

Basically, you only have one life and you can’t do it all.
