Just got back from another morning shopping trip. I find that I'm spending my money on nothing but food lately. I haven't bought a single article of summer clothing yet, and feel like I'm in a complete rut. I'm at that age where I no longer have a style. I want to dress professionally, but most of the skirts and blazers are horribly ill-fitting on me. I'm just so sick of denim ;_;
I also find myself ostensibly avoiding The Bay lately. I've got to get over this. Especially when I have the tendency to force others to walk to the opposite side of the mall. ( Collapse )Avenue Q
is going to be in Toronto from July 29 to August 30. I can't wait ♥ I've been looking forward to this for awhile.
I've been marathoning Ugly Betty
episodes lately. And by marathoning, I mean watching one episode a night (which might help explain why, after my three month X-Files
marathon, I'm still on season three. . . I just can't stare at a TV or computer for more than an hour at a time). I absolutely LOVE Ugly Betty
. The characters are so fantastically catty and the plot is deliciously unpredictable. Santos' death really affected me a lot, and I love the Daniel/Alex(is) interaction. I thought I was a Henry fan (especially after that Grubstick speech) but I also adore Gio.
I was cruising afterelton.com yesterday morning (yes, yes, shut up) and came across the description of a new play on Broadway called Good Boys and True
. It actually sounds really really interesting. According to afterleton: The show is set at an all-boys prep school and begins with the discovery of a graphic sex tape of an unidentifiable boy assaulting a girl. Brandon, the school's top student and star athlete, is implicated as the attacker. Brandon protests his innocence, but as the mystery unravels what comes to light is Brandon's secret gay relationship with a fellow student.
I've been raking through the Archaeological Fieldwork Index lately. There's still a chance I might head out on a dig this summer. There are some open in France and there is an interesting Nenanna Complex one in Alaska. I also have a couple resumes floating around for Ontario digs. I secretly have no desire to work this summer, but I'd grab any opportunity to get more fieldwork experience (even though I will have no need for it in the future ;_; By taking a molecular anthropology masters, I've more or less given up any chance of being an archaeologist).
Bought some more books at Chapters this morning! I'm really into mysteries lately, so I grabbed Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile
. I also picked up a book called Sky Burial
because it was cheap and looked interesting. It's supposedly a biography about a women who spends her life with nomads in Tibet after her husband was killed. Also got The Murder Files
because I'm in a morbid mood right now. It's about interesting murders throughout history.
Faa. I had no reason to write any of this. I just needed a break. And now, I'm off to buy shoes and booze. Well, definitely booze. I probably won't find any shoes today either ;_; Busy weekend ahead!
P.S. - This is the best X-Files rewatch blog ever
. Primarily because I never noticed Tooms' bubble-butt until I read it, but also because of the heavy breathing ♥9
