I might be super lame, but I saw this on my friend Amy's blog ( Just A Titch ) and I love it. Plus my brain isn't working for an interesting post today, and so I'm doing it. :)
Current Books: I'm currently about halfway through You Belong to Me by Mary Higgins Clark. It's quite interesting. I didn't go out and buy this book... I was at Starbucks waiting for a client and saw it sitting in their big basket of books and magazines. It had a sticker on it from www.bookcrossing.com and so I started to read it and took it home. I look forward to returning it to the same Starbucks when I'm done. :)
Current Playlist: I can't stop listening to Sara Bareilles' album, it's wonderful. But recently... OBSESSED with Chris Thile's band Punch Brothers. Their album is really fantastic, and I can't get enough of the fourth movement of Blind Leaving the Blind. The words are amazing, the composition is beyond brilliant, harmonies off the chain, and Chris' voice is just sent from heaven. I missed Music Monday yesterday so I'll give you this clip of my favorite portion of the song:
Current Guilty Pleasure: Driving fifteen minutes out of my way to try to see John Cusack at the Post Office. The last two times he wasn't there, and I felt cheated.
Current Color: Green is my favorite color, but I just end up wearing grey and black. I'm lame and boring.
Current Drink: Diet Coke. And Starbucks Venti coffee with half and half, two splenda and two sweet and lows. I have no idea why I order it that way, but I'm sure the staff has wanted to say, "Why do you do two of each? What freakin' difference or kind of sense does that make?" But... that's just how I do it. I also drink a lot of sugar free cider at night as well as peppermint tea.
Current Food: Can't stop with the roasted chicken noodle soup from Subway. Hello, 80 calories for the bowl and it's delicious on a cold Milwaukee day!
Current Favorite Show: Biggest Loser (check out Fat Bridesmaid's liveblog Tuesday nights if you like the show and want someone to talk to about it while it's airing.) Also I youtube the X Factor a lot. Oh, and DEXTER. (I'm considering adding him to my top five, he turns me on so much. Yes I'm a freak.)
Current Wishlist: To steadily drop three pounds a week until I hit 140. That's 44 pounds to go, and if I lost 3 pounds a week until then, it'd take just under 15 weeks, or until January 19th. If I lose 2 pounds a week, that means it'll take 22 weeks, until March 9th. To book at least ten more 2010 weddings before the end of this year. To subsequently buy another D700 and the 70-200mm 2.8 VR II. For the meds the vet prescribed to continue to work on my cat as they appear to be working (finally) - he's slept on the bed with us four nights running and no accidents. Also, I got this great new kitty litter (It's actually sawdust stuff, and it's amazing) so I think that's helping a great deal.
Current Needs: All my needs are met. That feels wonderful to say.
Current Triumphs: Fitting into size Medium anything.
Current Bane Of My Existence: Dishes. I am so sick of them, and it's NEVER ENDING.
Current Celebrity Crush: That would be, as previously mentioned, Michael C. Hall. I have an incurable thing for pale guys with reddish hair, (obvi.) This is of course not to supercede John Mayer or Chris Thile, 'cause I don't know if either of them will ever make it out of my top five. OH! And I slip into sweet, eye rolling, orgasmic bliss every time I hear David Cook belt it out (you don't know how bad it feeeeels) ((I wanna die, it's so hot.)) I play this song over and over in the car, and considering the fact that driving is considered operating heavy machinery... that might not be the safest idea. Oh, and it should be obvious I love live, acoustic performances.
Current Indulgence: Umm, my whole life is an indulgence, I'm spoiled rotten.
Current Blessing: Wonderful clients. Sleeping in. Money to live. My blogging community. Freedom, fall weather, constant inspiration, cheap clothes, chapstick. And my boyfriend has been amazing lately... super affectionate, bringing me flowers, footrubs, etc. (I'll stop now so you guys don't puke.)
Current Slang: I don't really think I have one, but I would love to be able to incorporate "Totes McGotes" into my conversations more. It's hilarious and awful.
Current Outfit: Size 14 jeans (not for long!) with a black cardigan. That's my life, and it doesn't usually get cuter than that despite all the cute clothes in my closet. I have lots of dressier / work style clothes, but I feel weird wearing them because I don't have a regular desk/office type job anymore. I'd be really overdressed to go to the grocery store.
Current Excitement: Biggest Loser tonight!
Current Mood: I really need to go to the bathroom. Oh wait, that's not a mood, is it? Well then... anxious in that I'm entertaining the thought of participating in NaNoWriMo... too bad it has to be fiction is all I'm saying. And too bad it has to be starting something new from scratch. I'm 8 chapters into my memoir. Maybe I just continue what I've already started (finally) and call it FiWriYoShiJe. Or I could just change it all and pretend it's not all about me. That might help to conceal the identities of guilty parties...
