Lazy Sunday Thoughts: I Have Been…

Because of Beth Fish, I've been using a camera app called Collect, which let's you add a photo a day to a calendar within the app. I decided to do one for October weather. It's probably our most interesting weather month. Here are some of my favorites for this month in a collage created by Picasa.

I Have Been… (I'm borrowing this from Kelly and Chris. I won't do all of them.)

Reading: The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. Actually, I finished it and I should have a review of it up soon. Such a good story. Oh and for a good laugh, you should be reading The Toast. I've been reading through the posts and not only are they funny and interesting but the comments actually don't make we weep for humanity.

Listening: Maddadam by Margaret Atwood. I was on the library waiting list for awhile and just downloaded it. Can't wait to catch up with God's Gardeners, Maddadams, Crakers, and Snowman the Jimmy. Musically, I downloaded the old, old Portishead album, Dummy, because it was super cheap and I'm kind of obsessed with it.

Watching: The Heat. Melissa McCartney and Sandra Bullock are so funny. I wish Sandra Bullock would do more comedy. I miss her in those roles. It wasn't without the usual issues for that genre (cop/buddy) but they both made up for any problems.

Anticipating: Lady Gaga's new album. I don't care what anyone says, I love her. She takes "all the world's a stage" to a whole 'nother level. She cracks me up. I think she was put on this earth just to amuse me.

Feeling: Bored. I never thought I'd feel this bored after working for such a short time, but I am. I have things to do but I don't want to do any of them. Even reading (!!!) isn't enough. I want to go out there and take on the world and maybe wear a cape! Or become an Adventure Librarian with Tasha, Judith, and Kristen. (This is what happens when you ask for career advice on Twitter.)

That's what I'm thinking about this Sunday. How about you?

  2. Love those pictures! I just did an I Have Been too :p They're great for when you can't think of something to blog about but feel like blogging :p I really want to read Maddaddam but have to read The Handmaid's Tale first >_> I don't know what's wrong with me that I haven't read those yet. And hooray for Portishead!!!! God I love them so much :D

    1. You have lots of Atwood to look forward to. I never really got Portishead until recently. I think my tastes have matured!

  4. I get bored at jobs so quickly. Even writing gets to be boring sometimes. We should definitely become adventure librarians. :)

  5. So glad to have turned you on to that app. It's a lot of fun. I have it set to beep at me at 6pm -- just in case I haven't yet taken a photo.

  6. That collage is gorgeous, love that idea :D

    Melissa McCartney is probably the funniest person in the world...I can't wait to see that movie.

    Go get yourself a cape!

    1. I should get one of those "Grand Dame" type capes and wear it with giant sunglasses. I'm not quite at the age for it yet but I hope to be able to rock that look someday.

  7. After blabbing about our heat, we have hit a cold spell! It was 45 degrees this morning but I see that you had a day where it was 13 degrees. You win ;)

    1. Well, that's Celsius, which is 55F. We're metric. For a second when I saw 45, I thought, "Does she live on the sun?!!" lol!
