My slothitude continues. The heat has pushed up from the Deep South to melt our popsicles here in
What have I been doing to beat the heat? I have been frolicking around my new apartment in my underwear.
I have no funny stories to tell or outings to gush about. Life is very mellow for me and that is just fine.
However, this makes for some very boring blogging to I am going into my fallback position of pilfering ideas from other blogs. Namely the Top 10 List of current obsessions going around right now.
Honestly, heat combined with general summertime apathy makes it hard for me to work up a lather to get obsessed about anything but I will try my best.
1.-The IKEA Catalogue-since moving I can’t seem to put the damned thing down. I even have a copy of the 2004 edition so I can see what has changed over the year. I have bookmarked my bookmarks and scrutinized those living room set ups for so long those Swedish names roll off my tongue like erotic poetry. IKEA is hott.
2.-Ginger Ale-what can I say? It is just damned yummy.
3.-Henry Rollins-his aging rock icon-ness is simply irresistible.
4.-Certain foods-this needs further explanation. I get on these food jags where I fall in love with some dish and then only eat it for days on end. These are not gourmet dishes but some weird thing that has torqued my taste buds for some strange reason. Usually I have a couple dishes going at one time so there is a little variation and as quickly as I am turned on by some food I am turned off only to cycle the food back in again in a few weeks when I re-fall in love with it.. Right now I am eating nothing but noodles in broth, baked potatoes, and cheese and soy slices on whole wheat with
5.-My new pillows- I bought brand spankin’ new pillows from IKEA and think they smell funny. Sort of like seaweed and farts.
6.-Yoshi on the balcony- she does this stretching thing that I call ‘The Noodle’. Well I am afraid she is going to Noodle herself right under the railings and Noodle off the balcony in a fit of Noodling. She can get pretty Noodley at times.
7.-Craigslist-even though people who use Craigslist are a strange bunch I can’t help looking at the furniture section SEVERAL times a day hoping that perfect Danish Modern teak dining room table will come up. It did once and I was scooped on it. WAH!
8.-Elephants-I love these guys and think they got a really raw deal with the whole ivory thing as well as those inane sparkly outfits they have to wear while dancing around in sawdust at the circus. No dignity. I just want them to all be able to frolic in the meadows.
9.-My hair-it isn’t growing very fast and I think it alternately looks very MOMMY or mullettesque. It always reminds me of what I went through. Cancer, the gift that keeps on giving.
10.-Hello Kitty and Wonder Woman-it is only my single status that prevents me from collecting these items in excess. Once I am married and my sanity is no longer under scrutiny I plan to surround myself in the minutiae of these two fabulous females.
