Reading: If you read this post on Monday you saw some of the books that I’ve been reading, (and am still finishing. Apathy, I’m looking at you.)  I used to be someone who could only read one book at a time, but lately I’ve found myself with four and five books that I’m simultaneously reading through the weeks.  I recently started Carl Sagan’s The Demon Haunted World and am really into it.  It’s all about his explanation of some of the conspiracies and ‘out there sciences’ with scientific solutions.  Sound likes a snooze-fest I know, but Sagan really has a very poetic way of writing.  I like it very much.  I may or may not be totally am reading an old Nora in my times where I need a little relaxing.  This time I went back toBlood Brothers which is part of her very good Pagan Stone Trilogy.

Doing: So much!  Last week I officially started my new job with the city of Springfield in their Environmental Services department doing lots of really awesome Sustainability stuff and I’m totally loving it. And am TOTALLY overwhelmed most days.  On top of that, (because I’m a glutton for punishment clearly,) I have been runnin around like crazy attending holiday events and parties, not to mention making sure I have something perfect for each person on my list.  I love giving gifts!

Thinking about: My new tattoo design. I’m going in to see my man Jake to continue working on my ½ sleeve next Tuesday and I’m pumped to see what he made of my idea. Also I’m kinda freaking out about doing the inside of my arm, because my brother told me it’s the worst pain he’s ever felt.  Yikes!!

Watching: Holymotherofpearl do any of you watch Sons of Anarchy? I am literally reeling from last night’s episode!! I watch a LOT of television normally through Netflix or Hulu Plus, but SOA has really been the only show that I’m still pretty religious about catching when it’s actually on TV.  Probably because FX is kinda a douchbag cable channel and refuses to post episodes to OnDemand in a timely manner. Anyway. Sons has progressively gotten more and more hardcore with some scenes that are truly DIFFICULT to watch..ahem Opie… (my theory is that their special effects guy got a COSTCO deal on fake blood and guts. This shit is not for the faint of heart.) But it’s so good.

Listening to: The Inside Llewan Davis soundtrack.  I have been waiting forEVER for this movie to come out  (Springfield generally takes a while to get anything that isn’t Thor 3000 or whatever other giant box office movie is dominating,) so I was suuuper excited when I saw that they released the soundtrack early. And on vinyl.  SWOON.  I’m pretty crazy about folk music, so this shiz is right up my alley, but I truly think that the music, performed by amazing actors and musicians, can really speak to everyone.  I urge you to run, don’t walk, RUN to your nearest music provider and take a listen. 

Feeling thankful: My brother and his girlfriend hosted a holiday sweater party last weekend that I and four of my best pals attended and we just had the best time.  We all gathered around the fireplace for a little family photo and it seriously brings me so much joy every time I see it. (See above.) I am so thankful to have such wonderful friends all over these United States and the holiday just makes me want to fly out and give each of them the biggest squeeze.
