New goal for October! Blog here more often. I’m making a 4 time a week goal. I know…pretty lofty considering once a week is what I’ve been doing. And I actually just made that number up with no prior thought because if I write it down, it will happen. But honestly? I miss it. I just had dinner with my best friend from college and she told me her sister just got engaged (same age as my sis and the wedding will be one week after my sis’s!). After discussing our maid-of-honor duties, I briefly considered starting a maid-of-honor blog and then stopped in my tracks. Um, time? Yeah, not there so much and I’d rather stay true to my Boston Girl blog roots.
Haven’t done it in a while, so I’m doing it now.
Things I’m obsessed with right this second:
Ryan Adams and the Cardinals Cardinology CD
It’s no secret I’m a huge Ryan Adams fan. Any look at pretty much any entry on my blog will tell you that. And actually, before I started Tumbling, it was rare I came across any other RA fans. Now I almost feel like a follower/groupie because everyone on Tumblr seems obsessed with him (or maybe I have just finally found my people. I probably should just move to NYC now. Ooh, I’d get peanut butter too). Anyway, Ryan Adams and the Cardinals (Neil Casal, yay!) are coming out with their new CD, Cardinology, on October 28. I was all set to pre-order on iTunes when a thought crossed my mind. I want this CD in my hands. I want to look at the insert. I don’t want to freak out if anything happens to my computer or my iTunes (OK so that was several thoughts). So, I decided I’m pre-ordering on Amazon instead. Can’t even remember the last time I purchased a material CD, but I’m so excited to actually hold a CD again (maybe unreasonably so). I don’t really get if Amazon will deliver it ON Oct. 28, but they better. Plus when I pre-ordered Harry Potter, UPS delivered at 8 a.m. on the day, so I have faith.
This may be the best book ever. Don’t laugh at me. Sara and I have a thing for “self-help” books and she tends to purchase them for me for holidays (um, trying to tell me something? Probably). Seriously though, last birthday it was Profiling Your Date: A Smart Woman’s Guide to Evaluating a Man. The year before it was Dr. Phil’s Love Smart. And for Christmas, The Guide to Getting it On. But Dating Makes You Want to Die is absolutely hilarious. You should read it even if you’re in a relationship because it’s that funny. My favorite line? In discussing why lunch dates are a bad idea, the authors say, “By the time you get home, you won’t even remember eating lunch. You’ll use this lack of memory as an excuse to watch more Fraiser and fill up on chocolate-covered popcorn. And then you will get fat and no one will love you. Because of your lunch date, you will die alone.” Perfect? Yes.
