Thursday Ten: And It Smells Like Bliss Edition

1. After all that sniff testing I have done with perfumes the past several weeks, I have finally chosen one! Bliss is the fragrance I’m sporting (when I remember to put it on) – a light scent, kind of green (the most prevalent scent in this to me is cucumber – which you’d think would be totally disgusting – and maybe it is – but I really love it).

2. There is a new hole in the knee of my jeans. This morning it was nonexistent – just faded denim worn to a soft layer, threatening to break. And then the hole appeared. I can’t stop messing with it. I figure by the end of the day, the hole will stretch across my knee rendering these jeans pretty much unwearable until the weather thaws. It’s a sad day for pants.

3. In guitar lesson this week, we started playing Iz (big Hawaiian name guy)’s version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” – which my guitar teacher was saying was about the same strumming and chord progression as Jason Mraz’s “I’m Yours” (just moved a few frets over). And now I can’t unhear it.

4. I know getting rick-rolled is a totally horrible thing you’re supposed to hate, but I still kind of like “Never Gonna Give You Up.” Just so you know.

5. I counted the other day and I realized I read 104 books in 2010. A lot of those books? TOTALLY FORGETTABLE. What was your favorite read of 2010?

6. I made brownies for my sister so my house? Smells like chocolate bliss. Which is nice. VERY VERY NICE (until I eat all the brownies I made for her and then have nothing to give to her).

7. More than once this week, I’ve been rendered speechless by a complete lack of knowing what to say when someone is having a rough time. I feel like I should have the words – I just don’t. It’s difficult. Wanting to be a good friend with the magic words – and instead offering lame platitudes.

8. I have been craving chicken tacos for the past three days. At some point I am going to have to give in to the craving and just go out for tacos. Hey! Maybe tonight.

9. I’ve been listening to “Holiday In Spain” by Counting Crows over and over today – there’s something about the melody of this song – and it is appealing to my mood at the moment. What song is in your ear today?

10. I really miss Project Runway. I also don’t have a tenth thing to write about. So I’m writing about missing Project Runway. Because I really, really do.
