Taking Stock SurveyInspired by Ché at Indie Berries, here’s my little macaron-sized update.

Making: lots and lots of lists.

Cooking: Thai green curry. pasta with tomato sauce. curried vegetable stew. stir fry. all on my 7 dishes list for my 43 Things challenge.

Drinking: green tea out of an Exeter College mug.

Reading: Lots. Daily Rituals by Mason Currey, Enders Game by Orson Scott Card. Shakespeare plays. Like, all of them. And as always, British Vogue.

Wanting: stability.

Looking: at Massachusetts in autumn. It’s beautiful.

Playing: This song that Caz just sent me.

Wasting: paper, it feels like, with all this list-making. But I think it’s worth it.

Sewing: a dress, eventually…

Wishing: on stars.

Enjoying: time to read and write.

Waiting: for Godot. [too easy. just too easy.]

Liking: the new series of The Carrie Diaires.

Loving: things that keep me warm. blankets, pillows, tea, hugs.

Hoping: for a Drowned Man extension.

Marveling: at Hal Lasko, a 98-year old man who creates masterpieces on MS Paint

Needing: to find the Zoombinis game disk. seriously, where are you.

Smelling: my new fireside candle. [okay not right now, but that’s more interesting than ‘heated air’.].

Wearing: see look 3 on yesterday’s post

Following: the leader the leader the leader… [also, Survivor: Blood vs Water.].

Noticing: that I work so much better in the morning.

Knowing: who Gossip Girl is and cringing through season 2 because it just doesn’t work. disappointed.

Thinking: about Chimerica and The Drowned Man and London theatre being awesome.

Bookmarking: awesome articles: Neil Gaiman’s speech on “Why our future depends on libraries, reading and daydreaming”, 13 pictures of crazy goats on cliffs, and this interactive flowchart that helps you pick out a YA novel to read. and sweet sites: this directory of London Walks, this adorable French site that blogs by colour, and Kiki.K, which sells organizational stationery and awesomeness.

Opening: the package containing my new laptop case from Looptworks!

Giggling: on the airplane [as in, in public], watching The Internship.

Feeling: fresh. good morning Boston!

Well that was fun. Want to join in?
