Reading: I just finished Burial Rites, book 35 for the year! It’s historical fiction based on the true story of the last person ever to be executed in Iceland, in 1829. It is, as you might imagine, completely depressing – but the writing is beautiful and the imagery has me ready to pack my bags and head to Iceland (my roommate went this summer and made it seem so perfect!)
Wearing: To be perfectly honest, as I write this on Saturday night I’m wearing bright striped pajama bottoms and a pink sweatshirt. It’s been a perfectly lazy weekend.
Buying: Christmas presents and only Christmas presents. I’m on a strict spending freeze when it comes to buying things for myself, until at least the new year.
Listening to: Nothing at this moment, but Christmas music pretty much 20 hours a day.
Eating: I ate a lot of garbage today but did have a Trader Joe’s salad for dinner. My meals have been boring lately, so please suggest cheap and easy ideas!
Watching: Literally watching How I Met Your Mother on my phone as I type this on my MacBook. Also still working my way through Veep and have added The Man In The High Castle. I’ve also watched all of Master of None since last month’s update.
Planning: Eek, still all those trips I mentioned last month. I really need to book some airfare, hotels…
Excited for: NEXT SATURDAY. My two best girlfriends and I are planning the ultimate girls’ day: cookie party, Sisters viewing at the fanciest theatre in Manhattan, wine, binging the first season of The Hills, and then watching Tina Fey and Amy Poehler host Saturday Night Live.
Wishing: Still the two places at once thing – but the second place would be Texas with my family for the holidays. Well, and Arizona. And Africa too? Maybe I need to be in four places at once…
