I have a weekend again.  Whee!  It's been really quiet which is lovely.

I had decided to try doing a fast for a day or two to reset, since my stomach has been cranky on and off for a while.  I looked around online and found the recipie for the 'master cleanse' system.  It's actually supposed to be a weight loss thing that you do for ten days.  You mix a cup of water with some maple syrup, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper, and have this six times a day, along with lots of water.  It seemed like a good alternative to a straight water fast so I thought I'd try it.  It's awful.  Drinking it was okay, but the aftertaste would make me gag.  I did make it through all day yesterday, but couldn't bear to continue it this morning.  Who knows if it did anything at all - but I suppose it was an exercise in willpower for the day.

I've barely left the apartment all weekend which is a nice change of pace.  Maybe it's a way of resetting my internal world.

I am also finally starting to watch netflix films again.  This weekend so far I've watched "Lawrence of Arabia" and "The Big Lebowski".  That makes sense, right?  heh.

Those cleansing things sound awful and unhealthy. I mean, lemon juice and cayenne pepper? Is that just to give it a taste? Why does it always have cayenne pepper?

I have no idea - I think it's something about still getting some nutrients and calories - but it was awful. Without the pepper it might have been okay, but the syrup was really too sweet. I think I should have just stuck with the idea of doing a fast for a day and drinking lots of water.

But I am now wiser. So I suppose that's worth something. And I have a lot of lemons left.
