I had a good week: spent last weekend and the holiday enjoying LA with C and P, project at work crossed a major approval, got my car cleaned,  took P to the Linkin Park concert as an early birthday present, and so on. A bunch of friends/family members had bad to very bad weeks, starting with my aunt and uncle were in Christchurch during the earthquake (they and the rest of their group are ok and were evacuated by military cargo plane). I wanted to share my good week vibes with everyone having bad weeks - maybe it worked since my weekend has been fine but quiet so far. I spilled mustard on my favorite new pair of pants on Friday and multiple stain removal attempts failed on Saturday, but the rest of my laundry is done and put away. I sewed buttons onto a blazer and a coat that I got at the last clothing swap. I framed a print that my parents gave me and P from our trip to Rome. We'll see if I try to find a place to put it up here or if it will go live at P's until we consolidate households. C and I had a lazy evening on the couch, sort of watching tv while mainly watching our laptops. 

The plan for today is church, then P's coming over and we're going to a housewarming party. Tivo is getting the Oscars for me because I like to look at all the clothes and fast forward through most of the speeches. :) I don't think C and P are that interested though so we'll probably watch All-Star Superman instead. I still can't find my graphic novels of the same which is really annoying but I'm sure I'll enjoy the movie any way. 

1. Make a list of 5 things that are in reach.

Laptop, teddy bear, Kindle, alarm clock, lamp. (It's barely 7am on a Sunday - I'm still in bed.)

2. What is your favourite holiday?

Halloween - I don't dress up as much as I used to, So it's a great excuse to break out the four large tubs of costumes I still own. Plus we've been helping out at the Fox Haunted Hallow for the past few years and that's a blast.

3. What is one item of clothing you wish you could always wear?

I'm very attached to my jeans and have to remind myself not to wear them too often.

4. Books, hard cover or soft cover?

Books = yes. I prefer soft cover over hard and electronic over soft these days.

5. What do you hear right now?

My hepa filter on low

6. Who was the last person you hugged?


7. What random song just popped in your head now?

Heart's song about picking up a hot hitchhiker and sleeping with him. No idea of the actual title.

8. What did you do today?

Surfed the web and this. I've been up for less than an hour.

9. What was the last text you received?

Automated text from AT&T saying my bill was paid.

Travel dress from Athelta.

iGoogle, Gmail, LJ, Twitter, Facebook (usually in that order)

13. If you could afford to go anywhere in the world, where would you go?

I can afford to go anywhere in the world. :) Next trips planned are Ashland (Shakespeare festival), San Diego (Comic Con), and Yellowstone (just for fun, never been there). Internationally, nothing definite but the Bahamas, Argentina, and Switzerland have all come up recently.

14. Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

In a new house :) probably still working for Google but hopefully having finally taken my sabbatical to attend cooking and/of sommelier school. And something else that I'm not talking about widely yet.

15. Where's your tattoo/Where would you like a tattoo?

Eh, I can never decide what I'd get let alone where it would be. Probably someplace I can always cover up like my hip.

16. What are you doing this weekend?

Chores, errands, housewarming party, church, lazing about on the couch.

17. If you could play any musical instrument, which one would you play?

Piano once I get off my ass and seriously start to re-learn it.

18. Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego?


19. Are you a creeper?

Not for any definition I found online. :)

20. What is your dream job?

I'd love to be a billionaire publisher who just puts out awesome books because I think they are awesome. I'd spend my days reading and hooking up authors with good editors and giving them money and health insurance.

21. What's the last good movie you saw?

I saw Unknown on Friday. It was fine but predictable. True Grit was awesome.
