Watching: Bob’s Burgers — This is one of my favorite animated shows, and the season premier aired last night. It’s refreshing because it’s funny and quirky without being mean. Like, sure, the family is odd and dysfunctional, but they are still a family that loves each other. I know that feeling!
Loving: Viniq Vodka — Delicious. And fun. Check out my video on Instagram and you’ll see what I mean. I’ve wanted to try it for a long time, lured in by it’s milky-way beauty. It’s tasty: mild, fruity, sweet.
Reading: Not That Kind of Girl by Lena Dunham — Let me assure you, I did not break my financial fast for this, but rather got it from a small hoard of points I had accrued on prior purchases on my credit card. So far, I love it. Girls is one of my favorite cable shows, and Lena Dunham possesses an energy I can’t help being drawn to.
Hearing: All About That Bass by Meghan Trainor — No treble.
Doing: 30 — This month, on the 19th, I turn 30. And although I know it’s not a big deal and all, it’s definitely been on my mind recently. I’ve had a lot of practice being a 20-something. To suddenly be 30 and an adult…it’s odd. Are any of you all 30? Did you find yourself trying to just go “It’s not a big deal” but then dealing with your inner child going, “Uh, it’s totally a big deal”?
It’s Monday. What are you doing?
Watching: New Girl – I love this show. Everything about it. The weird, quirky humor. The cast. I have days when I turn it on and just watch it. And season 4 just started. So, in case you’re wondering where I am on Tuesdays, there you go.
Loving: Ricola – I have been horrendously sick since the weekend before last. I’ve been taking every medicine under the sun and the one, comforting thing that has continued to work is the soothing gel-filled Ricola lozenges. I’ve probably gone through about seven bags.
Reading: “Creative Thursday” by Marisa Anne Cummings – I have had so many creative projects recently that I’ve just felt a bit scrambled. Then, I picked up this book. It’s about committing to and managing what you are working on so you can be creative in the midst of…well, everything else.
Hearing: The Book of Mormon – My husband and I went to see this musical last week. It is right in the same vein as Avenue Q, except I got to see this one without taking two trips to New York City. I have been belting out “I believe” at random moments, thanks to this musical.
Doing: Financial Fast – Until my birthday on the 19th, I am trying to abstain from buying anything other than what I need (food, toiletries, medicine) or am buying for other people (charity, gifts). Today has been, full stop, the most difficult day of this because the new book by Lena Dunham came out and I really, really want to read it. Like whoa.
Monday Tuesday. What are you doing?
