in no particular order:
- we decided to forgo the tempurpedic mattress (four thousand dollars, who knew?)
in favor of the large flatscreen
(less, because they are on sale. and not made of "memory foam".
four thousand dollar memory foam.)
coming in january: flatscreen prettiness.
-found a bag. don't need it, but . . .
you know. maybe just to carry some stuff around in.
what do you think? green good, right?
it's all about "green" these days. . .
- i unpacked and propped the new home.
now it is pretty. i feel MUCH better.
boxes make me jumpy,
i keep thinking :
"wait, what the hell is in THAT ONE? what have i forgotten about?"
- saw the golden compass.
be forewarned, i AM going as mrs. coulter next halloween.
why? hello, gold hand-beaded gowns / elizabeth-montgomery blonde bob /
large golden monkey?
it's practically already done, people.
i just have to add lip gloss. and a monkey.
- ate potato chips. and ice cream sandwiches. and sushi. all on the same day.
hello fabulous self-indulgent nausea!
- tanned. there, i said it. fake baked. whatever.
sometimes that just feels so freakin good, and i know, i know,
but i don't smoke, barely drink, and haven't had an illicit drug since . . .
since. . .
funny, why can't i remember. . .
well, anyway. . .
it felt good.
- saw atonement.
keira knightley and james macavoy must breed.
mainly for my amusement, but also for the continuation of obscenely gorgeously jawboned human beings with posh accents and glittery eyes.
there's an acronym in there somewhere.
- downloaded spanish lessons.
cause i'm going back to argentina.
and should probably learn to order my own food instead of leaning over to julia
and saying things like "mmm. and one of those."
and hoping she translates
rather than rolling her eyes and telling the waiter to spit on my steak.
- saw enchanted.
delightful! amy adams, amazing . . . shockingly for a disney film.
- oh, bliss. snuggled with the puppies, snuggled with the puppies.
taught avec "settle" so she doesn't jump so much.
started to teach them "sleep" so they sleep on their own beds.
so they stop sleeping ON me every night.
sweet as their snuffling is.
- saw Juno.
course, could have skipped all the others in favor of this.
or, as they say, "wizard".
- ran into this at saks.
i think it's the perfect way to sum up the year:
