Rhythmic Articulation of Feeling

I’m bouncing back after recent battles with the sewer main and other big life stuff. But it’s been such a head-spinning-ly busy week with more deadlines looming on the horizon. My dance card has been full and then some.

Oddly enough it’s turning out that 2011 may be the year of unexpected succor in many areas of my life. But you’ve got to give a little to get a little. I’ve met a master plumber who needs help setting up a web site for her business, and I need plumbing work. Yay for the barter system! Bigger financial matters have been somewhat sorted out - with help from various parties - but I still have this lingering post-Catholic guilt. Heck, I feel like I splurged because I bought the kid new socks (to replace his hole-y ones) and new sponges for cleaning and light bulbs and cat litter and windshield wiper fluid and some groceries. OH HOW DECADENT. I’ll get over it.

Let’s roll with Friday’s five good things:

  • Well, you learn something new every day. Recently I tweeted that I was drinking Mexican Coke at work (a rarity) and desperately felt the need to brush my teeth. The twitterverse responded with this tidbit. You should wait at least 30 minutes after drinking soda before brushing your teeth, to save your tooth enamel.
  • A collection of early zines.
  • My Netflix Instant habit has me jonesing for more episodes of Psych. I’d never even heard of this show until the holidays but now I’m nearly done with season 3. Just can’t stop myself.
  • Some day I hope to spend more time Cooking With My Kid. For someone who claims his career goal is to become a vegan chocolatier he sure doesn’t spend a lot of time in the kitchen. But he has been regularly packing his lunch on his own!
  • How to Date an Incarcerated Pirate Farmer Who Loves Cats - and I thought my love life was complicated!

And now we’re rolling into a three day weekend that I have tried not to overbook too much. But we do have tentative plans to see the most recent Chronicles of Narnia movie, possibly go bounce around at the newly opened SkyZone (over 13,000 square feet of trampolines!), visit with an out of town friend, attend a double header birthday party and get cracking on my photo shoots for our upcoming “Gutteral Visions: Extreme Metal, A Visual Interpretation” show. Phew.

    Yes! I was skeptical at first. But it’s really quite cute and clever and very very funny.

    My best friend has talked about Psych before! I have it in my queue, but haven’t watched any of it yet.

    I totally got hooked when I was sick last month and I just blazed through the first four seasons. Jonesing now because season five hasn’t been released just yet. SOON.
