I suppose I should have done this earlier in the month, but I love this monthly check-in that I have stolen from Kapachino…
Current Books: I just finished The Wishing Year by Noelle Oxenhandler. It was a really great book, about a woman who spent a year wishing and hoping for the things she most wanted, and the magic behind it. It is (thankfully) nothing like The Secret as far as cheesiness goes, and I really enjoyed it. Right now, I am between a few books: re-reading Anne Lamott’s Plan B: Further Thoughts on Faith and starting Writing Down The Bones and Eclipse (yes, the Twilight one).
Current Playlist: My friend Katy made me a fantastic mixed CD, from which I discovered Sea Wolf, Miracle Fortress and Easy Anthems. I’ve also been listening to some older favorites like Ingrid Michaelson, Feist, William Fitzsimmons and Kate Nash.
Current Guilty Pleasure: I don’t know that I even feel guilty, but I’ve been logging some serious time watching Flipping Out because Jeff Lewis is hysterical AND I basically want to be Jenni.
Current Color: I love green right now. I bought a bright green cardigan, and I can’t get enough of it.
Current Drink: Coffee, always and forever. Oh, and I’ve enjoyed a few glasses of Gewurtziminer lately.
Current Food: I made a huge batch of soup that I’m excited about. I’ve also been eating a lot of cereal. What is it about cereal that makes it AMAZING?!
Current Favorite Show: MadMen and Curb Your Enthusiasm.
Current Wishlist: Health for my dad. Not having to go back to work tomorrow. A bunch of new fall clothes. A new camera.
Current Needs: My sore throat to go away, and apparently, a big fat root canal on Wednesday.
Current Triumphs: I’ve done pretty well budgeting this month, and my apartment is super clean. Small victories, people.
Current Bane Of My Existence: My teeth. Work. My sore throat. Your mom.
Current Celebrity Crush: Don Draper, obviously.
Current Indulgence: I don’t know…sewing supplies? Nothing, really.
Current Blessing: Vicodin. Just kidding, kinda. My boyfriend has been pretty fantastic as of late.
Current Slang: Ugh, no idea. Probably something super annoying.
Current Outfit: Black dress, green cardigan, black shoes, “A” necklace. Boring, but cute.
Current Excitement: Going to see “Where The Wild Things Are” in a few hours!
Current Mood: Dreading work and anxious about my dad’s treatment beginning tomorrow!
