Project: Okay, I broke through the this-isn't-going-anywhere wall on ancestry.com and it. is. addictive. It's so weird that I'm having a hell of a time tracking down photos for certain older relatives, when so many of us living now are photographed, tagged, and selfie'd on an almost daily (or hourly) basis. Our descendants will know more than they ever wanted to about us. :)
TV Shows: I want to post each season 3 Inside Amy Schumer skit on every media platform I participate in. Also I watched The Jinx long after everyone else did and all I wanted to do was talk about it for like 72 hours. And I'm enjoying Daredevil more than I thought I would!
Movie: Saw the second Avengers movie and it had its moments, but overall there were certain major-y plot things I didn't care for at all. I've also been watching documentaries on things like Eastern European dating sites (basically mail-order brides) and sex trafficking. Because, you know, I need more reasons to feel hopeless about humanity (and misogynist straight men in general).
Food: I'm in a serious, long-term relationship with Trader Joe's Chicken Tikka Masala.
Celebrity Crush: Charlie Cox's everything.
Book: When I saw that All The Light We Cannot See won the Pulitzer prize, it actually made me less excited to read it, as the last winner I tried bored me to tears. But I was compelled from page one! Anthony Doerr managed to write a WWII historical fiction novel that actually made me interested to start learning more about WWII--something I haven't endeavored since high school.
Indulgence: It's May, which means my favorite cupcake is available: lime cake and tequila butter cream frosting (margarita!).
Fashion: On a search for the best convertible backpack/cross-body handbag for traveling.
Thankfulness: This week my friend Jonathan took me to my SECOND opera (he also took me to my first) as a present for my birthday. It was Mozart's The Magic Flute!
Music: Do any of you who've been to Italy have good 'Italy' music? Like for background listening or for driving in the car? I'm already making a playlist for me and the fam.
Wishlist: This crazy-fabulous coat that I'm pretty sure I would not feel bold enough to wear outside my home. But man would it look killer in my closet.
