one stone

so i've put on a stone (read-14 lbs) in the past two weeks since my meds were increased. now comes the process of losing the weight & staying well. ugh! i don't believe in dieting, though i will acquiesce to not stuffing my face every second of the day. more pilates for me & i ordered one of those giant ball things. i wonder if they work?
speaking of stones, last night i was sitting in my parking lot with the neighbors, having a drink & getting gravel embedded into my palms since i sat on the asphalt. the creepy neighbor guy who lives in the basement came round when he saw my friend had her cats outside & started chatting. I was formally introduced & he asked if he could go inside & get his camera to take a picture of the cats, then asked if he could take a picture of the two of us. *shudder* i dislike being so judgmental, but this is a man who lurks around the corners of the buildings with a pair of binoculars & furtively scurries away when he sees people approaching. maybe he's just shy, but there are a hella lot of windows to accidentally look into when you roam the neighborhood with a pair of lenses. now that we've met, i'll try to be a bit more open.
one more stone reference for today: i watched stone reader last weekend, a documentary about a man searching for the author of a best-selling novel in the early '70s, who then dropped off the face the planet. much of it takes place locally as the author was at the ui writer's workshop. interesting for any bibliophile to watch, i'd say.
