I know I've been scarce this week--as you can imagine I'm pretty worn out, although Cosmo is healing up and behaving pretty much like his old self. (Meaning bitchy, grouchy, and demanding, just like his Person.) We're almost done with the last round of antibiotics, much to our relief; I've about had it with having to chase him out from under the bed with my Hitachi Magic Wand. (It scares him. I might think it threatens his masculinity in some archaic way, but really, what has he got to threaten? He's got no balls.) Overall it's been a genuinely crappy two weeks.
At any rate, since I haven't had much time this week to write, I give you a list of things that have been keeping me reasonably sane lately, mostly in the realm of mindless entertainment. More spiritually juicy posting will resume shortly.
1 ~ I love that Geoffery Chaucer Hath a Blog.
2 ~ I love Annie Lennox, in particular her albums Bare and Songs of Mass Destruction.
3 ~ I love that Garfield is much funnier without Garfield.
4 ~ I love that Juno will be out on DVD in two weeks.
5 ~ I love Alton Brown. I want to have his geeky babies. I've learned more from watching Good Eats than I learned in culinary school.
6 ~ I love that there's a sequel to Hellboy coming out in July. Guillermo del Toro is a freaking genius...although I wonder what kind of scary landscapes exist in a mind that can invent terrifying monsters like the hand-eye demon from Pan's Labyrinth.
7 ~ I love Chipotle's veggie burrito bowl.
8 ~ I love that doing lots of Nia and ecstatic dance is having a noticeable effect on my body. Things are shifting around. I'm becoming more flexible, which is saying something, and my legs are getting stronger. The only thing I have to watch out for is my knees; the left one has been injured a number of times, so it's weak and prone to being yanked out of shape. However, Nia teaches you to become aware of the feelings in your body, to listen to tightness and discomfort and work at a level that challenges you without stress or pain. I'm learning how to sit back into my hips instead of leaning forward over my knees, and learning what it feels like to stretch the joint without going too far. I've never had this level of body awareness before, and I think it's fantastic.
9 ~ I love the agonizing sexual tension in television shows like Bones. I love to yell at the screen, "Kiss him, dammit! Throw him down on the autopsy table and ride him like Seabiscuit! AUGH!!!"
10 ~ I love raspberry sorbet, it turns out, which is weird, because up until about a month ago I hated all things raspberry. Funny how your tastes change as you age. Next thing you know I'll be eating avocados. *shudder*
Enjoy your weekend. I hope the weather where you are is more inspiring than what we've had here this week.
