Things have been more quiet than not lately. A little more stress-free. Kind of surprising I guess, having just started a new job at The Fire, but it’s the nicest job I could ask for right now. Feels so good to do something so hands-on. My fingers are rough & scratched from grouting mosaics and cutting glass, and I like it. I’ve been running a bit more & temps are supposed to be in the 30s & pretty sunny for the next 10 days so that means lots more running. The bills are paid, Sam’s birthday party is on Saturday, the Olympics are fun, I’ve been silencing my phone at night & sleeping a regular schedule, cooking at home a lot, you know… just all-around good and mellow. Emily & Matt close on their house tomorrow, so that’s super exciting. I wonder if I’ll ever own a house? Seems like the chores of older-home ownership can be quite daunting & that’s not too appealing to me… but at the same time, I’m a single girl in my mid-twenties. No husband or kids, I don’t have a career that’s keeping me in one place, I don’t even have a dog that needs a yard. Not to say that I don’t want those things (ok, not so much the binding career), but that’s just not me right now. I like to joke around & say, “marriage? kids? house? it would take quite the guy to change my mind…” & I’m ok with that.

Well, Blucifer & I are off to bed. Wanna catch up with some reading but… [yawn]. I’ve been reading EXPECT RESISTANCE: a field manual & THE SITUATIONIST INTERNATIONAL: a user’s guide, and I can’t imagine that the similarities are strictly coincidental… the red type, the same reference material, the similarities in titles…

my 4 faves from issac mizrahi’s fall 2010 line. absolutely in love. the variances in texture from piece to piece are so appealing… yum!

i’m really excited to get these in the mail & on my feet:

I find myself with more excuses than ideas these days. Here are a few of today’s…

_I have to make a pot of coffee first

_I have to pee because I drank too much coffee

_I have to watch one episode of ‘Lost’ to clear my brain first

_I have to feed the dog

_I have to walk the dog

_I have to feed the cat

_What if the NY Times is reporting important news? Better check…

_What if I have Facebook notifications? Better check…

_I need some music… Better browse for 10 minutes to find some good jams…

_Better fill out my tax forms before work at The Fire…

_I have to pee AGAIN… too much coffee

_I should make & freeze rice in single serving sizes so I am prepared for dinner for the next week…

_Gotta let the dogs out… again… and again…

_Better update Twitter so ALL my “loyal” followers know what I’m up to…

_Better update my blog so ALL my “loyal” followers know what I’m thinking…

_The project will only take an hour; why start now what I can finish later?

Seriously. I need to get a grip. Someone HELP!
