What I’m…

Reading: The Chaperone by Laura Moriarty - really enjoying it!

Eating: Vegetarian burrito from Chilango on Fleet Street (hint: when I’ve gone in super smiley and complimentary and tell them how much I *love* the guacamole they normally give me a bit more ;-) )

Loving: My new enormous sofa! We finally had it delivered after seven weeks of sitting on bean bags.

Looking forward to: our Texas trip in May!

For all the people who follow me who have goals—-whatever they may be. This video is amazing. Ben, you deserve all your happiness :-)


There are a couple messages from some new followers that don’t know my whole story. So today I made a video. I’ll admit I used a couple cheesy subtitles in an effort to score some extra views on Youtube (Youtubers love cheesy inspirational stuff.) And I basically cheated by using the best song ever in the background. But here is the basic story condensed into 4 minutes and 56 seconds.

For those of you that don’t like clicking videos in Tumblr (I don’t either. Not sure why…) The story basically goes like this:

Depression leads to a tough breakup.
Eat kind of healthy.
Lose weight.

Enjoy the video if you watch. It took me like three hours.

I love this show.


Someone made a montage of all the classy ways people make the move on Mad Men. It makes me very happy.

Aaron Staton wins with, “Ken. Cosgrove. Accounts.” My goodness.

Yes, this happened tonight. Yes, I took more than half my fajita meat home for a lunch leftover tomorrow. Mexican food is a weekness, and when jess (pictured purring while doing a cougar-esque claw) and I get together this sort of stuff happens. Jess is from Fargo, ND. It is nice to have American girlfriends here.
