wondering: why is my left forearm and hand sort-of numb and tingly?
hoping: the guy we had to call the ambulance for at work today is OK.
reading: almost finished with Imperfect Birds by Anne Lamott; also Village Life by Louise Gluck and, theoretically, Reading Jesus by Mary Gordon (theoretically because I checked it out from the library and then decided I neeeeeeed my own copy, so now I'm waiting for my Amazon order to come so I can pick it back up again).
listening: to "Lonely No More" by Rob Thomas (really, really loudly, as well as singing along in my horrible voice), "Crystal Village" by Pete Yorn (a song I simply cannot get sick of), Believe by The Bravery, "Numb" by LinkinPark (even though I have a hard time forgiving that spelling), and "Blow Away" by A Fine Frenzy
eating: (obsessively) Lindt Lindor Truffles; I thought I was out of the woods with these because I'd only seen them at Target during Christmas. Apparently they also sell them for Valentine's Day. Damn.
drinking: the very last of the pomegranate 7-up. Thanks mom!
thinking: a lot about writing lately. It's time to really write. I just don't know how to start. It feels too big. What: just sit down and write my novel? It's like diving off a cliff.
writing: an essay about rebellion and its benefits. I've decided that one way to actually become a writer is to be more dedicated about submitting my stuff. I know! Shocking!!!So I'm writing this essay (that starts with a little black dress) and I WILL submit it. Somebody check up on me!
wearing: a pair of pajamas I bought in October and then left in the back of the van. Until yesterday.
scrapbooking: Christmas photos. Almost all of my layouts for christmas 2010 are done. Why does this feel like an enormous accomplishment?
wanting: these Ray Ban sunglasses. BAD. The purple ones. I've already visited them twice!
watching: I'm super-careful about picking up new TV shows. Not because I'm snobby about TV but because if I like a show I'll get a little bit obsessed about it, and I already feel like I watch too much. I did try out Harry's Law and Off the Map, but I haven't decided for sure if I like either one enough to dedicate all those hours of my life. Opinions?
itching: my back, of course. But more carefully so as to avoid Bloody Back.
loving: Haley's new-found affection for Amy Tan novels; Jake's text he sent me yesterday before leaving for the Klondike ("I love you youre the best mother ever" awwwww); Nathan's dedication to his science project; the gap in Kaleb's mouth when he smiles
What are you -ing lately???
