Currents, May 2013
Current TV Show: I'm watching Fringe and I like it. The similarities to The X-files are strong, but where The X-Files fails in its 'huge' conspiracy surprises, Fringe is brilliant and continues to follow through on its plot twists. But the characters in Fringe will never matter to me or make me feel things like Scully and Mulder did. (Do.) I also watched seasons 1-4 of NewsRadio but couldn't go on after Phil Hartman's death. Too sad.
Current Movie: I finally saw Django Unchained and really enjoyed it--especially the soundtrack! Richie Havens, Ted Neeley, Jim Croce? Not to mention the awesome theme song.
Current Food: Still eating loads of pesto.
Current Book: I Can Barely Take Care of Myself: Tales From a Happy Life Without Kids by Jen Kirkman.
Current Time-Stealer: I've got an embroidery project that is KICKING MY ASS. I thought it would go pretty quickly but I'm starting to develop tapestry needle callouses. I can't wait to show it to you.
Current Indulgence: Real estate. All it takes is someone in my life looking for a place and I get lost in the housing market looking for cute, unique, old-world houses.
Current Fashion: I've picked out an outfit for my friend's wedding that includes billowy silk patterned high-waisted wide-legged pants. I think it will be the first time I've worn pants to a wedding! At least in many years.
Current Music: Can't get over this movie or its end-credits song:
Current Wishlist: I would love this trunk for a coffee table, thanks.
Current Worry: I am going to make it my goal this year to not get sunburned at ALL. We'll see. It should be for health reasons, but it's really that I can't stand trying to sleep when sunburned. Also: cat scratches.
Current Project/Location: My deck! I'm slowly turning it into my personal outdoor paradise.
Current Celebrity Crush: Stephen Amell has been making me swoon in Arrow.
Current Obsession: I reaaaaally want to learn how to hand-paint stuff like furniture with detailed design.
Current Reminder: Every time I get anxious about the weather getting warmer, I remind myself that I bought a fan on sale last year, and then I feel better.
