I feel good. I’m really looking forward to getting out of dodge later this week and driving up to Tahoe with El Hub for the weekend. Even though I see the guy every day, it’s not the same as getting away with him for a chunk of time, just the two of us (no tabby).
- Wide-leg pants or skinnies?
Hmm… I feel like I look a little taller in wide-leg pants when the cut is right and I’m wearing heels (nevermind that I actually am a little taller when I’m wearing heels, haha).
But the skinnies, I like that I can wear them with boots, flats, Chucks/Vans or heels. They work with just about everything.
So I guess the skinnies then, since they’re a little more versatile, and you know how I am about versatility!
- What’s your least favorite fronzen treat?
Orange sherbet, BLECH! I also don’t do orange Push-Up pops. They make me gag…
- Is there anything about yourself you’re currently working to change/improve?
Is there ever! At the top of the list: forgiveness. I have a hard time letting things go when someone does me wrong. I can carry a grudge…well, I can carry a grudge forever.
I’m trying to get better at letting things go, which doesn’t necessarily mean that things become all puppies (kitties) and rainbows, but I do believe that life is too short to hold grudges. What’s the point, right?
- When did you start driving?
Later than most of my friends. I think I was 19 or 20. I didn’t drive in high school because whenever I even broached the subject, my dad would go on 20-minute tirade about how he and my mom took the bus everywhere when they first moved to America, and how driving was “a privilege! Not a right!”
So I got my first car when I was in college. It was a red ’95 Honda Civic that I loved to pieces, and it’s actually still running! My parents have it. I swear, that little trooper will be zipping up and down 880 long after the zombie apocalypse arrives, I kid you not.
- If you were going to record a song with a featured guest artist, who would your featured artist be?
If we’re talking living or not, I’m going with Biggie.
If we’re just talking living, well, I dunno. Maybe the Biebs? But more to just be able to tell him how much I love those cardboard cutouts of him I keep seeing at Macy’s (those things crack me up!) and to chat with him about fragrances.
- How do you like your heels? Low, medium or high?
How about somewhere in the middle between medium and high? I’ve been trying to wear more low-heeled shoes though. I know they’re supposed to be better for me in the long run, but man! — I’m just so short.
- Sometimes I wonder…
…who wrote the book of love! Why growing up can be so painful. If when Tabs stares at me, he’s staring with love or disdain. Where I’ll be in five, 10 and 15 years. If I’ll ever write that young adult novel I’ve been thinking about writing…
- What do ya say we blow off our responsibilities today and do something fun instead? Where should we go, what should we do?
How about window shopping? We could meet in the city at Union Square, hit up all the shops, try on some shoes, and then afterewards, I’ll drive us out to Cole Valley to get some ice cream at The Ice Cream Bar.
Who’s with me?
- Weekly goals:
To show Tabs extra, extra attention this week (even though he has a petsitter, he always freaks out when I’m not around), to find a few prospective places to eat and fun things to do in Tahoe, and to write like a maniac!
G’morning, sweets. Wait — not a word about last night’s True Blood please. I fell asleep reading before I could watch it.
I started a new book last night called Delirium, by Lauren Oliver. It’s another young adult one. I’m hoping it’ll tide me over until the second book in the Enclave series (Outpost) comes out on September 4 (I’m counting down the seconds!).
I hope you’re having a good morning so far. Tabs keeps nudging me to take him for his morning walk, so while I go entertain my neighbors by walking my cat on a leash, why don’t you take a second to fill out the Monday Poll?
Be right back.
