February Recap

February Recap

Current Book(s):
I feel sort of embarrassed filling this out after Lisa! But alas, I spend way more time on my butt watching BRAVO than reading, i'll admit it, sorta lame. I'm reading wasted right now. Next up : Musicophilia: Tales of Music and the Brain, gifted by the manfriend. Finished: the Shack: interesting ideas at times yes, but overall one of the worst books i've read from a non-chick lit standpoint.

Current Music: Well. Apparently now I listen to hip hop. I've downloaded a couple of Flo Rida songs, good for the biking. Since my hip went wonky and I can't run...see below.

Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure:
Nuts. Holy cow. I discovered the numerous fantastic combos of nuts/dried fruit and fantastic flavors at trader Joes. I'm like a heat seeking missile right to the spicy&tangy almonds. It's a little out of control. I'm starting to feel like a bear.

Current Colors:
well. I wear the same dang black pants every day. Why? I'm lazy. I do wash them... at least every other week! Come on. It's not like my legs sweat.

Current Obsessions:
I see shame inducing pleasures as an obsession. But ok, I'll pick something else. The bachelor. I was so pumped, and it started so good. But now it's over. What a let down. Sort of like if a pinata broke and it only had now and laters inside.

Current Drink:
Tea lattes-breakfast tea with almond milk. mmmmm.

Current Song:
Ok i'll pick another. Ready for some more poptastic tune-age. What? I like train? Catchy stuff.

Current Movie:
I have Dopamine sitting on my side table. It's been there for 2 weeks. I should probably get to it. I watched Roller Girls-fantastic. Paper heart-absolutely delightful!

Current TV Shows:
 Big Love. I've also started watching How to Make it in America. Do you think he'd marry me? That would be nice.

Current Wish-List:
-waterproof jacket
-new running shoes
-new pelvis

Current Needs:
-Calcium and vitamin D

Current Triumph:
-I don't have much to brag about right now. I have worn matching socks every day this week.

Current Bane of my Existence:
- Lisa, I hear your pain. OVER 2 weeks ago, I was on the treadmill running and I started getting a weird achy pain in my L hip/groin. It STILL hurts, and I can't run. It hurts to push on my ischium. Not sure why, but it's blowing the big one not running. Biking/elliptical does not give the endorphin release running does. I'm hanging in there, barely.

 Current Goal:
- Make it to match. And get my wonky pelvis to ecuador.

Current Indulgence:
- I bought coasters on ETSY. Yes I'm broke. But gosh, they were so darn cool.

Current Blessings:
-An entire week >30 degrees. Can I get an AMEN.

Current Slang or Saying:
-"I need to know this". I'm trying to motivate myself. Lord, help me. 3 more days of big thyroids, small testicles and high blood sugar.

Current (Fav) Outfit:
- Anytime I can wear my glamorous target brown leather boots.

Current Excitement:
-Matching. Yellow fever vaccine this Thursday! whoohoo.

Current Mood:
-Honestly, a bit grouchy lately. I'm sure my family will second that. sorry!

It will be so good to have match day behind you!!! Can't wait to hear where you end up. I am confident you'll get whatever is at the top of your list.

Feb was a huge reading month for me. I've been better about rading on the bus in the mornings. Which I've been able to do now that I caffeinate on the drive to the bus stop. I am totally addicted to caffeine. Oh well, could be worse, right?

Very excited about your Ecuador trip!!

Looking forward to hearing the results from match day! Although it's very stressful for you, I am sure you are going to end up at 1st pick! :)

That's awesome you're going to Ecuador! I wish my week off was spent doing something a little more exotic than cleaning the refridgerator and reading....but the break is nice :)

I hope your hip is alleviated SOON!!! :) Running is a neccessity for sanity

Welcome back, qwerkyqook. Not going to say anything about your mood as I am worried about your hip as well. Two weeks from tomorrow I fly to Minnesota for Match Day! Hang in there.

I am most entertained by your humorous writing. How do you find that music, though???

Marlys said...

I agree with B&B - your writing is hilarious! Have a great trip to Ecuador - how exciting! Sun and heat would be so wonderful right now!

Thanks guys! I'm so ready for match day to get here! I just google the song and hit video. You can embed youtube videos very easily. Hopefully I can build up my vit D stores on the equator!
