Currently I am:

Reading: "The Poisoner's Handbook: Murder and the Birth of Forensic Science in Jazz Age New York." Call me crazy, but I love nonfiction and especially learning about crime and forensic science.  I'm only on chapter 2 (which is focusing primarily on the use of wood alcohol as poison) but I feel like I've learned so much already. You'd think a book like this could be dry or boring but it's quite the opposite!

Watching: Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Legend of Boggy Creek II.  I don't know if any of you have watched MST3K or heard me talk about it, but if you like campy sci-fi movies and funny commentary you should go watch it now.

Really excited about: Going to Santa Fe in T-3 weeks to look at apartments with my sister. I have a bookmark folder of apartments on Craigslist and every day I check each listing to see if they're still available...such a nervewracking process! I'm  I'm also excited for my new tattoo on January 28th, and for Rob's on January 31st!

Bemoaning the fact that: We're still too far from moving (around 5 weeks, eek!) to actually do anything. I've been planning how we'll go about packing, what rooms we'll pack first, etc. but it's just not the same as actually planning anything.  I have, however, managed to get rid of some of our bigger items or at least made plans to do so, made final vet and doctor's appointments, called a few apartments/houses, and cleared out our closets like mad.  Feels good but I'm still stressing. Sorry to keep complaining about it.

Laughing at: Rob's old phone. We finally had to get him a new one after this one's screen went totally blank.  We considered upgrading him to a smartphone but (1) we don't want to pay for more data and (2) it doesn't really make sense to get him a somewhat-flimsy smartphone with crappy battery life when he's going to be in the woods for weeks at a time. Plus he tends to be kind of rough with his electronics.  So he's stuck with another 2001 special.

Wondering why: Certain people have such a hard time gaining insight into their own emotions/actions/thoughts.  What's difficult about helping others work through problems it that it's hard to just flat-out say what you think is the issue for fear of hurting them;  you sort of have to dance around and hope they get your point.  I'm not saying I'm any better about this because when you get down to it, none of us want to accept that we might be the cause of our own issues and how others treat us.  Am I making sense, or incoherent as usual?

Wearing: Today I put on a blue t-shirt and blue pajama pants, causing the song "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" to be stuck in my head for a good fifteen minutes or so.  I've said it before but I'm a pretty classy bitch.

Dying of cuteness because of: My husband and his familiar dog. And seeing said dog survey her empire from her "throne."

What is currently going on in your life? If you do a post like this (I've seen many around the blogosphere) link to it in the comments!


  1. Ugh, now I have that song stuck in my head, too!

    I love MST3K. Also Rifftrax, when somebody else does all the hard synching up bits for me.

  2. I was like "what's ... blue da ba d DAMNIT" Now it's in my head too.

  3. I haven't done a post like this but I should! I love that picture of Rob and the sweet. :)

    I hate that part of moving...the waiting to actually start packing part. I always end up packing too early and burning out by the week before so I end up just throwing half our crap into the back of the car and crossing my fingers nothing breaks. Yeah. I'm cool like that.

  4. OMG the pictures of Cypress always kill me! What a cutie, my Goodness! Also can't believe you're going to Santa Fe in just THREE weeks to look around. So exciting! :D

  5. hahah i'm going to have BLUE stuck in my head now! heehee.
    i can't wait to see the new tattoo! i'm hoping to get an appointment this week for my new one.

  6. I HATE that in-between stage ... you know, I'm moving but it'll be awhile ... so I'll just wander around and stare at all these boxes and feel confused. That's what I do, at any rate.

    I think it's hilarious when people wear entire outfits of one color. It was a movie or book or something ... one of the characters always wore the exact same colors because she felt too cluttered if she wore more than one. That stuck with me because it's just such a funny concept.

    But pj's ... well pj's can be ANYTHING.

  7. I tried a "currently" post....

  8. I blogged a currently post over at
