One Lovely Blog Award

One Lovely Blog Award

Awww…I have been nominated for the One Lovely Blog Award by My Pen and Me at http://mypenandme.wordpress.com/. I really appreciate being honored with this award from a fellow blogger so thank you!

The rules state that I must share 7 things about myself:

1. I get stressed out when people ask me to name my favorite things. It seems so pedantic to narrow the world into favorites. I love different things at different times!

2. I can never get sick of eating sushi (especially raw tuna) mmmm….

3. As a child, I used to allow myself to read the last sentence (and the last sentence only)  of a book before starting it. I was very disciplined about this.

4. Sometimes I get trapped in the shower. It is a wondrous land of steam and closed eyes and nice smells and I find it very difficult to shut it off and enter the cold harsh world every day.

5. I always feel like babies and drunk people can see into the depths of my very soul. This does not make me uncomfortable at all; I like it when the layers are removed. I am aware that this perception is completely inaccurate, as both are in possession of brains that are actually quite foggy.

6. If I could have any superpower, it would be time travel.

7. My favorite time of day is when dawn is just breaking. However, I am very lazy in the morning so I rarely get to see this now that I’m no longer a crazy night owl twenty-something.

* Oh, wait…that’s a favorite. Apparently I’m full of contradictions, too.

I will add some blogs that I’d like to nominate later…

The Right Regrets

Not regretting anything in particular today, just finding myself in a reflective mood. Maybe it’s the leaves fluttering to the ground and signaling the coming chill, or perhaps it’s just the sense that seasonal change marches on whether we want it to or not.

Fall is usually my favorite season, but today it feels rather bleak. Maybe it’s time to get outside and crunch some leaves in the afternoon sun, pick the last autumn apples at a nearby farm, or buy a pumpkin or two.

How does the changing of the seasons make you feel?

Oh, Summer

Waiting For Bardot

Did I mention that I am currently teaching English to businessmen in Saudi Arabia in the middle of the night? Lately I’ve been burning the candle at both ends, so to speak, in a not-exactly-glamorous way. Teaching at night, photographing a kids’ birthday party complete with bored adults and a bouncy castle during the day, pizza making, cake baking, and wrangling my puppy to make sure he didn’t actually eat any of my relatives during a birthday party in my tiny apartment.

Today  has been one long nap. Can I even make it to the beach?
