I hate the news.  I must stop watching the news.  I'm going to live in a bubble.

Well, the hubby got a head start on his shopping and bought a desk.  Great.  I don't have a kitchen table now.  Don't even have a vacuum.  I'm waiting on those two things til I have the extra money to spend, after I pay my bills.  But he went ahead and bought a desk, and maybe a pricey external harddrive.

I do love an good overdraft.  Don't you, darling?  You make me love you more and more each day, so much more, I'm going to live in a bubble, watch films where beautiful men make beautiful love to each other, and fantasize about beautiful men making beautiful love to each other.

The soon-to-be Ex-housemate actually rented a steamer cleaner to clean our carpeting.  She also borrowed a neighbor's Dyson vacuum cleaner, you know, the one with the Ball technology.  I'm really itching to use that thing.  Really.  I can easily skip the gym after work today just to toy with that sucker and really see if it can get 'round corners like it boasts on tv.

Haven't been able to quit Maurice.  I have the dvd on both my Amazon Wishlist and Netflix queue, and I'm addicted to watching bit and pieces of the film online.  Yes, the torrid scenes are definitely my cup of tea, but always, always after watching the end (*SPOILERS* Clive staring out of the window sadly, wistfully as he imagines Maurice back at Cambridge beckoning him to come with him *SPOILERS*) I find myself going to the computer and dropping my husband an email, telling him how much I miss him.

Have fallen in love with the film Maurice, and now I shall browse Amazon and B&N for a decent paperback copy of the book.

Gah!!!  I own the September 2007 issue of Vogue!  I didn't think that it was the very same one The September Issue revolves around until that scene where Sienna Miller came to the magazine's offices in NY to check out her sweet wardrobe.  I went straight to my magazine tower and there it was waaaaaaaay at the bottom!  It is almost in pristine condition, but I lament  that the first few pages of that 20's-Era John Galliano shoot have been torn out!  I don't know what happened to them;  I filched the magazine from work because it was being used as a placemat in the breakroom!  Really?!  Swipe!  It's mine now, suckers!

Making Random: Anna Wintour

Whenever I see the editor of American Vogue these days, I can't help but think, "Hmm, it's The Curious Case of Anna Wintour!" because I think she's aging in reverse.  Why, at fifteen years old, did I think she look like she was older, like in her 60's?  She certainly doesn't look like that at the present.   


Beautiful Saturday morning, with so much sunshine and green!  I've thrown open my bedroom door so that the natural light pouring in through my bedroom window can come into the living room.  Unfortunately, the soon to be Ex Housemate hasn't realized how lovely sunshine really is and insists on keeping the living room feeling like a cavern by leaving the lamp on while she's on the computer.  We have WiFi, yet she can't take her laptop into her own room. 
Beautiful Saturday morning out.  Why go to the gym when I have an entire park and beach to wander?? 

Last week for the housemate, and she still hasn't really started on packing.  Watched Evan Almighty this morning but really couldn't enjoy it because her door was ajar, and she and her man were talking and laughing waaay too loudly.

Spent half an hour shredding paper junk, and now I'm going to reorganize stuff in my room before I let myself go out to enjoy my lazy ass weekend.  I wish you were here, dear husband of mine.  I miss you like crazy.

Oh wonderful!  Lori is back and she's turned on her stereo. *sigh*

Hello, me!

Bought the October issue of Vogue and read it on the bus this morning.  Sheesh, when was the last time I ever read anything on the bus other than my Iphone?  Anywhoo, Cary Mulligan is lovely as usual, like an awkward pixie doll.

After lunch treatin'

A small cafe au lait and a chocolate brioche from Emporio Rulli on Union Square:  $5.75.  I'd say a 1.25 less at Starbucks, but I am quite sick and tired of Starbucks and I like EP's chocolate brioche because it's smaller and flakier than a Starbucks croissant. 

Someone's got to go.

Here's something to talk about:  I'm looking forward to my housemate finally moving out at the end of the this month.  I've always felt held back from experimenting in our in-law's small kitchen because she and I share it.  And my housemate tends to spread all her things out on the scant counter space and half the table space.  I'm planning on spending a weekend after she leaves totally overhauling the cabinets to make the kitchen space more accessible and less cluttered.  Anything she leaves behind I will either keep or donate.   
I'm getting delusions of House Beautiful!
Last night I decided to try my hand at cooking steak.  My husband is the Steak Guy and I always leave it up to him to cook dinner whenever we fancy steak.

Just as it says on the tin.  Making random until I figure out exactly what I want this blog to be about.
