bill / January 28, 2007 10:17 PM

1) Buyers remorse from $130 transaction at the Jewel/Osco. Buying groceries always seems like a good idea on Sunday, until Tuesday when I resign to take-out for the next 28 days anyways, and wonder why frozen peas ever sounded good.

2) Remorseful from sleeping away the weekend and buying into the January slump. Couldn't seem to get out of bed or apartment to contribute to friend's valiant efforts to create social events in dead of winter.

3) feeling remorseful for feeling so remorseful and not just allowing self to be. Perhaps will meditate with self-help cd before bed tonight, and then feel remorsefully like an idiot in the a.m. for believing in voodoo magic.
