Reading: Going Postal, possibly my favorite Terry Pratchett book of all time; The Wild Girl by Kate Forsyth, Outlander by Diana Gabaldon, and a bunch of comics. I’m finally dipping into Marvel and loving it, especially Daredevil. Also Jeffrey Brown’s Star Wars books, which are too cute to pass up.
Eating: Curry shrimp for Mother’s Day.
Drinking: Homemade lemonade.
Binging: Law & Order: SVU and New Girl.
Missing: The beach. The boardwalk. Dune fries.
Loving: Mermaids, pretty journals, and superhero aesthetic boards on Pinterest.
Cooing: Over the Lego Batman trailers, which I somehow missed until now. Clearly this movie will be a work of art.
Craving: Violet lemonade. Rose lemonade. Any kind of lemonade.
Making: Eggs-in-a-basket. They’re delicious and I’m a little obsessed with finding the perfect flipping technique, since I obviously have nothing better to do than make sure my eggs are set but not too set.
Reorganizing: My desk. It’s the one spot in my bedroom that I clean on anything like a regular basis.
Searching: For a job. It’s about as fun and stress-free as you’d expect.
Listening: “Walkabout” by The Augustines, “Release” by Pearl Jam.
I just saw the mini series adaptation of "Going Postal". The show was alright, but I could see through the story-bones what a creative tale Terry created- and what seemed like great world-building and whimsy! It seemed like the book might be better than what I saw...?ReplyDelete
I've never had any sort of lemonade other than plain or pink. The flower-flavors you mentioned sound delicious!
Best wishes on finding a job! Are you looking for anything in particular?
I haven't seen the miniseries yet, but I've heard that the book is better. I absolutely love it--it's so bizarre and funny and perfect. All of his Discworld books are amazing--my other favorites are Guards! Guards! and The Fifth Elephant. I own a bunch of others that I need to get caught up on, too.Delete
Rose lemonade is delicious. I have to admit that I've never tried violet lemonade, but it just looks SO good.
Any kind of job really; I need to make some money over the summer.
I'm loving the warmer weather, making iced coffee and omelettes (although not at the same time) and reading "All the Light We Cannot See." Your "eggs-in-a-basket" comment made me smile!!ReplyDelete
I've heard that All the Light We Cannot See is really good? How are you liking it?Delete
Iced coffee sounds delicious. :)
OKAY GIMME SOME VIOLET LEMONADE/ROSE LEMONADE/ANY KIND OF LEMONADE BECAUSE THAT SOUNDS AWESOME AND SUMMER IS NOT SUMMER WITHOUT LEMONADE. <3ReplyDelete
Good luck with the job hunt!! Also dune fries sound amazing what are those??! I MISS THE BEACH SO MUCH TOO GAAAHH like honestly why did i ever leave?? still ask myself that question all the time. ugh. xD
Dune fries are french fries covered with melted cheese, bacon, and scallions. You can dip them in ranch if you want, and they're delicious. I've always loved the beach, and I never spend enough time there.Delete
You're so right--summer isn't summer without lemonade. :)
Oh the job struggle! I hope you find one soon! I quite like your blog, btw :)ReplyDelete
Thank you! I've applied to a bunch of places, so we'll see how it goes.Delete
Wait. Violet lemonade? That sounds so terrific. I have a desk that I am always cleaning up too! it's a foldable one so every night I am cleaning it!ReplyDelete
I generally keep my desk pretty clean-ish, but every couple of months I get the urge to reorganize everything on it. :)
