Today I’m a big ball of functional snot. I’m sick and I have a mild headache compounded by the loud shouts of small boys who have immediate needs that are urgent, even if I don’t think they’re urgent. Juice, it seems, is a matter of national concern. I felt like saying hello to all you guys, and then I noticed that Flower Patch Farmgirl was doing it, so I said to myself, “It must be cool” and jumped right in. Without further ado, here’s some random and mostly pointless information about me:
current guilty pleasure: Someone gave me the world’s biggest bar of chocolate for my 30th birthday. Of course I’m eating it.
current nail color: Pftt. No.
current playlist: The Muppet Movie Soundtrack. Don’t hate, it’s ridiculously happy and the kids love it.
current read: Blood, Bones & Butter: The Inadvertent Education of a Reluctant Chef by Gabrielle Hamilton (I’ve read like 10 pages and her run on sentences are hurting my brain) and Orthodoxy by G.K. Chesterton (I’m in love).
current drink: Dr. Pepper, from a can, in a cup, with ice.
current food: Whatever I can find in a hurry. Oh, and this Tuna Salad, which has caused me to eat two cans of tuna in one day one time, and anything pasta.
current favorite show: Downton Abbey. I just wish there was MORE of it, you know? Because I seriously obsess over it while I wait for new episodes. It can’t be healthy.
current wish list:
Some childless fine dining…or cool boots. I tried to buy boots once this winter, but my 23 year old sister wouldn’t let me, I don’t know why she’s the fashion police, she bought JEGGINGS for crying out loud. They smell like diesel (her jeggings, not the boots). I was very close to buying some vibrantly colored rain boots this year, but it’s a good thing I didn’t because it hasn’t rained at all. I wish it would rain. I also wish to start making my family eat more beans. That seems weird now that I’ve typed it, but there you have it. Beans I say.
current needs: to shower
current triumphs: I hung this plant in my kitchen:
It may not seem like much of triumph but I had to put it in the ceiling twice. The first time I managed to screw it in to some ancient putty, and it fell with a crash a few hours later, taking the ceiling with it. I thought about giving up my dream of succulents dangling by the kitchen sink, but I tried again and hit drywall. This is probably the most boring triumph on the planet, but I live small.
current bane of my existence: my head cold. I think all my current problems stem from my head cold.
current celebrity crush: Phoey. I really don’t know. I think I need to get out more.
current indulgence: How is this different from a guilty pleasure? You just want to know all the bad things don’t you? Chocolate I say! And Dr. Pepper!
current blessing: coffee, a very cute husband, and the marriage of garlic and butter.
current outfit: jeans, Derrick’s dodge ball t shirt, my sister’s hooded sweatshirt, a beaded necklace Q made for me this afternoon. It’s all pink and plastic and it makes me feel that pony beads are forever. I’m just now realizing that I’ve become a human hermit crab, gathering articles from various places to adorn myself.
current excitement: discovering I can rent e books for my kindle from the local library. I am also excited because I plan on adding some glow sticks to the boys bathtub and giving them a glow in the dark Friday night bath. I saw the idea on Pinterest, the origin of all good ideas and half of the ideas that sound good but end up being bad.
current mood: slightly hungry and stuffy but optimistic about a relaxing Friday night.
