It’s been a year of “Currently” posts! And what a year since I’ve started! Phew!
FEELING: Dizzy and giddy and hopeful and delighted! Valentine’s Day is coming up and I don’t care what people say, I FUCKING LOVE VALENTINE’S DAY! For crying out loud, I have hearts and roses tattooed on me. I’m the biggest mushy romantic that EXISTS ON THE PLANET. Being around all the red and pink and hearts just makes me even more sappy than normal. It’s like Spring Fever but…way early.
LISTENING TO: Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness by the Smashing Pumpkins. Back to Black by Amy Winehouse. And “No Surprises” by Radiohead.
WORKING ON: For over a week, I’ve been knitting an epic cowl for my grandmother. It’s super soft, plush, and the prettiest orchid pinky/lavender. Now that THAT’s over with, I want one for meeeee! Also, I’m trying to duplicate this in a darker green: So far, I’m about half finished and I’m so stoked on how cool it’s going to be!
THINKING ABOUT: What an incredible burden it is to have long-term memory. When I first saw the movie Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, I thought it was stupid. Who would ever want to erase their memories? Now that I’m older (cough cough much older), I can understand. It’s hard to have so many experiences. Where do you draw the line between learning from the past and becoming hopelessly jaded?
EATING: CARROTS. I have a full-on carrot addiction and it’s getting crazy. When I’m home knitting and avoiding the cold, I just graze on carrots. Carrots in hummus. Carrots in salsa. Carrots in peanut butter (don’t knock it til you try it!). One weekend, I ate a 16-oz bag of carrots EACH DAY. I guess I need more variety in my diet? But I suck at cooking and don’t want to waste time on it. I’d rather be knitting or taking a bath. Sorry, mom!
