Wow. Where did September go? I guess time really does fly when you are
having fun busy studying, socializing, reading, blogging, researching, writing, meeting, cooking, exercising, and taking full advantage of having a DVR after over two years without cable.
How about I fill you in on my current events?
(Although, if I’m saying these are for September, and September is almost over…are they really current? Or are we now in history? And as soon as I post this, there will be lag time before you read it, and then they won’t really be current anymore, will they? Maybe we should call them contemporary events, as contemporary has a less specific connotation. Maybe?)*
The red shorts and white top you see above that ‘I put on in an attempt to blend in with the diehard Alabama fans
roaming mobbing at the craziness–Customer service? For tailgating?--that is football tailgating on Saturdays.
I’m pretty sure the looks I received were the dyed-in-the-wool ‘Bama fans seeing right through me and into my Virginia heart.
I took a kabocha with me to the Rivermarket Farmers’ Market on Saturday morning to prove to the hipster farmer that he has been misrepresenting his kuri squash.
I spend a whole lot of time on the University of Alabama Libraries website. That, with Google Scholar for citations, are my one (two?) stop shops for heading down the rabbit hole of research.
I DID just start Life After Life by Kate Atkinson, last night–a little bit more thought-provoking and already rather intriguing…
Ben Rector‘s new CD was somewhat of an impulse purchase, but the first time I listened to it, I swear I had an emotional, religious experience. (And then I danced around my apartment, too.)
Current Consistent Guilty Pleasure
Lots of local produce…
(I try to keep a day or two in between so I don’t over-EGG-zert myself.)
Current TV Show
Current Wish List
Trader Joe’s goat’s milk yogurt, the ability to take naps, a great Vinyasa yoga class, and a Whole Foods hot bar.
Like the sorority sister who had me over for the most amazing dinner…and homemade apple pie that convinced me I might actually like crust after all.
The South is swaying me…I nearly started an e-mail with ‘Honey’ the other day, and I have definitely caught myself saying “Bless their hearts” on (at least) one occasion.
Current Bane of My Existence
…that it takes so long for persimmons to ripen.
