Math..well, sort of.
Did I mention that I am not too fond of math?
( after seeing Julie & Julia this week-end, I find I say things, at least in my head, like Meryl Streeps' characterization of Julia Child.."Not tooo fond" would be one of those..didja hear it? The trill?)
Anyway, seems lately for this one person, me, numbers have been everywhere..
They are in my head 26 hours a day ...
Recipe measurements (yes, I'm cooking...another story) weight, money, work hours, money, oh, yeah I already mentioned that one.
Well, it's important. I have myself on a budg...a spendin...OK, OK an allowance..
And I am trying to prioritize the way I am utilizing that small small small amount..
Oh, I'm grateful I have any at all in these days, I really am..really.. I am..
So, gas for the car ..this is where, ick (insert shiver) math comes in.. I've been watching to see how many miles I can get before I must get gas..
so, OK, I can go to the bookstore and pick up my magazine(s) and, oh wait, they have a GINORMOUS sale lookie!! Oh joy!!
OK, now I know I need to stop for gas. So, let me think...think..think..if I get, oh like a dollar or three of gas, that'll get me probably like, oh, 1.75 days to work and back..that is if I don't go anywhere in between....Hmmm..think think think.
Can you see where this would be a problem for someone like me??
Oh, and the weight thing? Did you know that the sweater I wore last night must have weighed like a pound? (Yup, up a pound..grrr..)
So now I must calculate how I dress for weigh-ins divided by what I splurged on and ate over the weekend times the actual time of day, equals the sum of the...
OK OK, but first 2 quotes I found on ....math:
"There are 3 kinds of people int the world..those who can count and those who can't."
"Math is made up of 50% formulas, 50% proofs and 50% imagination."
"Philosophy is a game with objectives and no rules. Mathematics is a game with rules and no objectives."
So, go out there and enjoy every minute of your day, every penny in your wallet and every calorie you consume..(that's not a quote..just some advice from me )
Let see, it's 6:56 and the walk will take 20 minutes minus make-up time, add lunch prep, divided by household chores and times that by I need to be at work by 8 and if I travel 65 mph, and it's 13 miles...
....just shoot me now..
