I have been answering this survey online for a million bijillion years and never get sick of it. On OD it used to be the thing to do on Fridays. It feels right to do it on a Friday again.

current pic: last leaves on my trellis.

  • current book: Hanya Yanagihara, A Little Life. The suck thing is that my library copy is about to expire so I'm going to have to wait until it becomes available to finish reading it. I've seen so many reviews of it and the bad ones are so gleeful that I could not resist. So far it keeps my interest but sometimes the reading of it hurts my teeth.
  • current sounds: tires on rainy roads, washer and dryer, Charlotte Shane's Prostitunes (sign up!!)
  • current shame-inducing guilty pleasure: caffeine overload, see previous post
  • current colors: bone and mustard... and charcoal, always charcoal.
  • current triumph: living room painting done, except for touch-ups. THREE COATS of white to cover up that foul blue paint. 
  • current food: Tonight I made super fast pork tenderloin medallions with nothing more complicated than thyme, salt, and pepper for seasoning. I saved some for breakfast tomorrow and now I'm looking at the clock thinking about how long those ten hours are going to be.
  • current link: OMG IT IS AN OUROBOROS. At least I did not say yo dawg, I herd you like links so (giant cane pulls me offstage)
  • current outfit: charcoal waffle-knit henley, white sweater-knit pajama pants (dude it SNOWED today), goddamned isotoner ballet slippers
  • current clarification: I think November 5 is a perfectly normal day for a Canadian city to have its first snowfall of the season. It's not like I don't know it's coming. It maybe even feels kind of late? (I see you, El Nino.) But that does not mean I did not swear like someone was breaking my kneecaps when I saw it.
  • current fragrance: TokyoMilk Excess which is way nicer than you might expect from its very reasonable price
  • current wish list: a winterlong stash of Harney Hot Cinnamon Sunset, a pair of dark brown jeans that fit just like the black ones I just bought, a jewelry stand that really appeals to me, new glasses (I can have them--I just had my eyes checked over the summer after yet another corneal erosion and I know my prescription is still good, but I just don't want to shop for them. I know, I'm sorry.)
  • current celebrity crush: Everyone that matters on Mr. Robot is so ridiculously attractive
  • current needs: Sleep, GOD. I got 2.5 hours last night; am in an insomnia phase. Also need to track down a few low-carb soups for elderly diabetics who have trouble chewing. Welcome to my to-do list.
  • current film: I'm so excited about Trumbo and hope that it makes its way here eventually
  • current anticipation: Sofa shopping! Also new kitchen appliances! Where's that damn Penney's catalog again?
  • current bane of my existence: Insomnia phase
  • current indulgence: Cheese, smoked cheddar, anything blue, and very aged goat gouda. Ohhhhh cheese, you are even better than coffee and more portable
  • current #1 blessing: the roof over my head; it is pleasing me so much lately
  • current mood: 60% sleepy, 40% satisfied
