Currents, August 2012


Current Movie: Last weekend I attended a Grease sing-along with my friend Jennifer.  First off, I can't believe I was able to watch this movie before I turned 18.  Second, Danny Zuko is still incredibly hot.  And not a very good person.  But oh-so-so-so hot.  The hips!  THE HIPS.

Current Food: It's frozen.  Don't judge.  Amy's Cheese Lasagna.

Current Worry: I've got a doctor's appointment coming up to discuss not-great things.

Current Book: Right now I am devouring Caitlin Moran's How to Be A Woman.  It's not perfect, but I like her feminist slant on the female comedic memoir.  I saw this book everywhere when I was in London last year and it's now finally available in the States.  For book club we're reading The School of Essential Ingredients by Erica Bauermeister and I'm liking it fine.  It's reminding me of Chocolat, which I'm currently preferring. 

Current Obsession: Well, I got a Keurig coffee maker.  And I'm in love.  My favorites are Caribou Coffee and Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime tea.

Current Thankfulness: My cat and my parents.

Current TV Show: In this order...The West Wing, Bob's Burgers, and Teen Wolf.

Current Wishlist: Some new TOMS.  I'm too lazy to get a pedicure, but it's too hot for socks.  I've got gray canvas ones, but I'd like to have some of the corduroy colored ones.

Current Music:  I'm pretty obsessed with Prince's "I Wanna Be Your Lover" and Jack White's cover of U2's "Love is Blindness" from the The Great Gatsby (2012) trailer.

Current Reminder: My left arm tattoo.

Yay! A new post from Maryann! I'm sure you've been busy, I've just missed your posts.

You got one of those fabulous, fancy coffee makers! Very deluxe! I'm not a coffee drinker, but I didn't realize they could also be used for tea. I'm currently enjoying Celestial Seasons fruit tea sampler, but Sleepytime is also great, and basic Camomile.

I am now obsessed with "Game of Thrones," both as a television series and books. Can not put them down.

I've always been partial to Prince's 'Anotherloverlikeaholeinyour head." I haven't heard that Jack White song yet, but I'll seek it out.

Hoping you'll have a very reassuring doctor's visit that shows nothing to be concerned about. Sending bear hugs. You got that therapy doll yet? "Everything is going to be all right."Sending my most positive thoughts out your way.

yesss Game of Thrones! I need to finish the first book and keep going--I want to find out what happens on the show!

I'm not familiar with that Prince song. I'll have to check it out. He rarely disappoints.

I have the therapy doll and he's great. I don't know why I assume it's a he since it has a female voice. In fact I actually removed the recorded device, because I kept rolling over on it in my sleep and freaking myself out. Thanks for the positive vibes though.
