What Have You Been Up These Days?
Voyager by Diana Gabaldon. This book has 1200+ pages so it's taking me a while to get through it. When I reached page 600 I felt like book 1 was done and I was starting a whole different book. I gave things a 10 day pause and picked up the book again yesterday and it's really terrific. I feel like instead of reading one great book, I'm reading two.
Someone to Watch Over Me. I decided you should be hearing what I hear all day, so I put a clip at the end of the post with Katherine McPhee, from a couple of Idol seasons ago, singing the song in her own special way, my favorite way.
With all the show starting again and new shows coming in, some of the ones I was most looking forward to a year ago, I'm not holding my breath for now. True Blood and The Mentalist are two shows I can't get enough of. Another show that has me coming back for more is Mad Men. I don't know why but it's strangely addictive.
Last Movie You Saw and Loved
Australia. A good epic with great people and a good story. I loved everything from start to finish.
Shiseido sunscreen powder foundation and MAC lipstick "O".
Eau de 4 Reines from L'Occitane. I'm using the soap and EDT. Love it. It makes me feel like a fresh rose garden.
Cold salads and sandwiches.
Iced Tea. Can't get enough of it.
Long cold showers to wash off the excessive heat. Although, between you, me and the fan, I'm not that guilty about it.
Bane of my Existence
The construction being done on the outside of my building. I'm living on a prayer.
I don't remember a time when there was no banging or particles flying into my apartment. So what I anticipate is the end of the construction and the end of summer. The combination of the two is torture. Oh God! Why hast thou forsaken me?
Most modern calendars mar the sweet simplicity of our lives by reminding us that each day that passes is the anniversary of some perfectly uninteresting event. - Oscar Wilde
