It's Lisianthus , Baby .


I literally only had 2 hours of sleep last night .  But I made it in time, and the once-a-decade thing is taken care of now .

​I finally found a flower that's the right length for the vase .  It's Lisianthus, baby .  I've always wanted it , especially the purple one, since I first laid my eyes on it .

About the previous one though, the iris ,  I was so sure it was going to last 10 days . .  in the end, it smelled like ripe plum and . . 6 .  I can't break a week, can I ?



Let me see how many miles I've walked today . . 3.1 - I was nearly crippled by the end of it . It's definitely the shoes. Since I no longer wear sneakers or running shoes, I feel as though my option is slim .

As I was looking up this " how much people walk on average everyday " thing, I noticed something ridiculous. Someone had the gall to suggest one ought to walk 10,000 steps a day. What is that ?  That's like from Barceloneta to Horta. Who does that ? No one, I tell you, no one at all. OK, halve that to account for to and from, that's Barceloneta to Diagonal - still ridiculous .   I mean, this is in Europe where a lot of cities are very walkable and nice - whereas in the US, where people rely on cars, I mean, who walks so much in a day? Do they just circle their neighborhood w/ narrow streets sparsely dotted with uninteresting shops if they don't want to hit the gym?  Now, I don't mean to sound sarcastic. I'm actually curious, because as you can tell, I am on the weak side.

OK. I have to go to bed. Having the MSGM coat is like having a dog or a cat - the hair, oh .  It's fine .   No worries .

FYI btw, the Arab shop owner has finally warmed up to me and decided to be friendly. He did not overcharge me this time. Heck, if I didn't think it was a fair price or if their goods aren't so darn good  .  .
