I got this idea from Dana’s blog, and I thought it would be a good post for the beginning of a new month. Feel free to borrow this idea for your own blog; it’s kind of a meme that’s been going around. 🙂
Loving: Books, writing, my job, my little furball, being able to keep the windows open at night… most things about life right now.
Reading: Marcel Proust’s short stories. Highly recommended if you really want to read Proust, but you can’t seem to work up the courage to pick up his enormous volume In Search of Lost Time (or, Remembrance of Things Past).
Watching: Nothing. I’ve never really been into TV.
Thinking about: Too many things at once, as usual, some of which include food, the library, love, lust, hate, religion, philosophy, coffee, how useless my phone is right now, work-related stuff, acronyms, odd dreams I had the night before, story ideas, how much I hate traffic… it goes on and on.
Anticipating: November, my second favorite month of the year, after April. The weekend.
Wishing: I have a wish about the upcoming presidential election, but I’m not going to share it here.
Making me happy: Everything about life except the commute to work, and everything related to that: tailgaters, rear-enders, people who don’t yield, construction, blue headlights, really ultra-bright headlights that blind you, slow-moving farm equipment, random items sitting in the highway, people who go 10 miles below the speed limit in the left lane, being stuck behind a dump truck, 18-wheelers, guys driving pimped-out Geo Metros, seeing a beautiful Mercedes with 22-inch rims… you get the picture. Basically the only things I like about the commute are listening to music at extremely high volumes and reading peoples’ bumper stickers and vanity plates.
Well, that quickly became a rant about the commute, but hey – it was fun to get that out of my system. 🙂
