How I’m spending the first snow of 2012

Actually, the snow isn’t a big deal. I’ve already shoveled and salted the walkway. The stuff in the driveway is only about three inches deep (and I just got new tires two weeks ago!). The roads are fine. So, it should be Saturday as usual, except…

Today’s installment of Saturday Chinese Buffet has been postponed. No, it’s not due to the snow. It’s because I’m on my way to a hypnosis seminar in Philadelphia. I promise to resume eating Chinese food tomorrow.

Now… sleep!

Exploring Hypnosis

As you know, Bob, I write about hypnosis on a regular basis. Not surprisingly, I’ve done some research on the subject over the years. But, aside from a few minutes at a fraternity party three decades ago, I’ve never been formally hypnotized.

That all changes today!

As part of one of those Groupon/Dealfinder thingies, Valerie recently gifted me with a couple sessions with a hypnotist in Philadelphia. We’ve been corresponding back and forth for the past couple months trying to find a time slot that fits our respective schedules and that time has at last arrived.

I’m very excited to get some firsthand experience of this, and also because this particular hypnotist is a certified trainer, and I’ve toyed with the idea of learning the skills myself for therapeutic purposes, but I’ve always demurred because the timing wasn’t right, or the courses were off in Michigan or something.

Everything may be coming together for this in 2012 though, as this same hypnotist is offering a complimentary seminar in January, and I’m already signed up. Who knows, if all goes well, I may need to invest in a new watch fob!

But I’m getting ahead of myself. One step at a time. For today, I’ll concentrate on trying not to cluck like a chicken.
