Thirteen Things Thursday

1. I was late on posting this week, so I thought I'd give you all a little extra.

2. Went to the outlet mall with my sister (and baby Connor) on Sunday. It was very fun, and we both bought things.

3. Today I had a successful shopping trip to TjMaxx. It's hard to do. You have to be in the right mood to try a million things, but I found 2 shirts and a scarf.

4. Watching figure skating. It's such a beautiful sport.

5. I didn't have to work today. It was kind of fun to be able to decide to do whatever I wanted with the day.

6. A couple of friends of mine have made lists of things they want to do before they die. It's not a new concept, and having "die" in the title is a bit morbid, so I think I'll make a list of "Things I'd like to accomplish in my lifetime." I'll post it here once I've created it.

7. Unlike my friends, I will make my list only out of things I haven't done, not start with a half filled list.

8. The reason I missed Tuesday was that I took Nyquil for a cold and my brain went away.

9. I have no excuse for Wednesday.

10. I talk about coffee a lot, I really love it, but I really love tea too. It's incredibly good.

11. I don't know what I'd do without spell check. I'm quite the abysmal speller without it.

12. I also have terrible handwriting, but technology can't fix that.

13. Clap if you believe in faeries.

Tuesday Things Ten

1. I'm starting to have trouble being creative about my titles for TTT

2. A special shout out to my cousin Maelee! Thank you for your card. It's so nice to hear from you, and that you read my blog:)

3. Read a 380+ page book in one night. Could not put it down. (The Summoning by Kelley Armstrong)

4. Don't worry mom, I wasn't up that late. It was a fast read.

5. Can't wait to start the sequel tonight.

6. Oh Mike Rowe. That Dirty Jobs host is one crazy person.

7. Homemade chicken soup. Yum yum yum. Thanks mom.

8. Cornbread is good too.

9. I know you're feeling crummy Nat. Hope you get better soon.

10. Dec is a little baby kitty that just breaks my heart. She's only a couple months old and today she had surgery to put a pin in to set her broken back leg. Every time she moved wrong she let out a cry that just goes to your very core. In theory though, she should make a full recovery and once again become a healthy happy cat.

Ten Things Tuesday

1. I love "The Big Bang Theory," It's such a funny show.

2. My new Elle magazine should be arriving soon. I'm excited.

3. I need to clean my room, asap.

4. Ditto on getting my laundry done.

5. In a few days I will no longer be a teenager. I can't believe it.

6. It's a beautiful day outside, perfect for a walk with the dog, but I have to get ready for work soon.

7. My cat's an idiot. She's perfectly fine, but the other night she was jumping onto the short wall upstairs, overshot, and fell 15 feet from the second story to the ground floor. They do say that cat's always land on their feet, and it seems to be true. She wasn't hurt, but she was embarrassed for a while.

8. Because of falling, my poor Hazel only has 5 lives left. She's crawled into and fallen 10ish feet down a vent and gotten trapped, she's gone into the vent twice (half life gone for each time), gotten stuck in a wall for a few days, and now fallen nearly two stories.

9. The new Alice in Wonderland looks really really creepy.

10. Time for Starbucks soon. Hip hip hooray.

Something Different

I've been thinking for a while about what I could do for a blog post other than ten things tuesday, and to tell the truth it's been hard. Part of the problem, is that when I'm thinking about it, I'm usually not on the computer. I like to say that a lot of my writing happens in my head. I'm always thinking, always creating stories, and the only person that hears or sees them is me. Most of those things would be just for me anyway; my little observances throughout the day, conversations I wish had happened differently, things I imagine having in the future... stuff that isn't worth sharing. It's hard, finding something to put into words for others that is something I want read. I'm going to work on that, or at least try to. At the time being though, a lot of my writing time is concentrated on my book, so it might still be only every so often that a post isn't ten things tuesday.

10 things 2sday

1. My internet has been bugging the heck out of me today.

2. I keep forgetting to do other posts. It just keeps becoming tuesday before I do anything else.

3. Pistachio pudding is delicious.

4. I deleted my Myspace this week. I just didn't see the point of having it anymore.

5. Even though I haven't been blogging I've been doing a lot of other writing lately.

6. My dad is trying to spray the dog with the squirt bottle (for being naughty) but he keeps hitting me.

7. I just got a webcam to use with Skype. I can't wait to really start using it.

8. Dolly lost her toy at work yesterday. I didn't find it till this afternoon.

9. My pant leg is still wet, and it's making me cold.

10. I promise I'll get a real post done this week.
