OMG, remember AOL profiles? I was so into making my profile as cool and creative as can be on a weekly basis. I even did that weird uppercase/lowercase pattern thing, i.e. “ShOuT oUt To mY GiRlS!”. And put emo song lyrics in the “personal quote” box, which reflected my mood, i.e. pretty much anything from The Cranberries or Radiohead. I was such a cliché.
Saw an old friend of mine over the weekend that I hadn’t seen in years and he had a wife and nine-month old baby. Totally blew my mind and made me think, I’m at that age where the people I know are getting married and having kids. And then I thought, okay I’m at that age where people I know are getting married or having kids. Get over it already.
I have this mixed playlist on Spotify that includes Phil Collins, Limp Bizkit, Bonnie Raitt, Letters to Cleo, Bob Marley, Arcade Fire, Marilyn Manson, Fergie and Tears for Fears. A playlist for any mood, I say!
Is anyone watching True Blood? I have a serious thing for Warlow (although Eric will always have my heart).
They’ve implemented a new regular work-from-home schedule at my job and I am loving it. Working in my pjs is a dream.
Bob and I booked a short weekend trip to Cape May and it was like pulling teeth trying to get him to agree on the location. He has a weird prejudice against New Jersey and doesn’t consider anything in the state to be a “weekend getway”. I seduced him with words like “Victorian”, “very historic” “so relaxing” and “cozy bed and breakfast” several times before he relented. Cape May for the win!
The other day, I was reading Lolita on the train. A man asked if I was reading it for pleasure or academics and when I told him pleasure, he said it was good to see someone reading the classics just because. I felt super smart and proud of myself and vowed to continue with the classics. I started Emma by Jane Austen, but I stopped reading at page 20 to pick up a mindless book by Sophie Kinsella. And in case you’re wondering, Can You Keep a Secret? was hilarious and sweet. Recommended for a bit of fun and froth.
