Reading
Barbara Kingsolver - Small Wonder
Outlaw Cook for I don't know, the fourth time?

Wondering
Why my work glasses won't come clean at all any more
Why I only need these glasses three or four times a year
Why the hell people won't look things up for themselves; I am not your personal researcher

Needing
A good three-hour nap
That three days of furniture-reliant sex I mentioned earlier

Listening to
Coldplay
Wilco
Into the Woods soundtrack
Cake

Eating
Tacos al pastor, mmm, bad for me
Plain green leaf lettuce on the way home from work; am I turning into a rabbit?
Homemade nonfat chocolate pudding, much better than expected

Being tortured by
You know who you are
Distance
My unbalanced checkbook

Writing about
Things that tip me into liking someone - e.g., what they read, how they laugh, how they hug
"Yeah, everybody wear the mask, but how long will it last?"--The Fugees
Art Teacher

Drinking
Pete's Strawberry Blond
4 liters of water a day; I'm going to float soon
Absolut Peppar dirty martinis, two olives

Purchasing
Cat food; how does a five-pound creature eat so much?
Margaret Atwood's new book, hurray!
Gift baskety stuff for Daddy's birthday

Being grateful for
The shebang: walking every day, breathing, being healthy, living large, paying bills
Men who make me laugh
My crazy family
Miss Beek and Cec
All of you out there
