If I had a theme for this week, it would be “Fast and Easy.” I just didn’t have time for anything else.
Mood: Pretty good, considering the hell that is awaiting me. I have to try and cram a week’s worth of work into one weekend. This might be a short blog post.
Listening: The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill. I got a set of Sennheiser headphones for Christmas, and they are incredible – the sound quality is just… it’s like sitting in the music.
Watching: Finally saw Les Miserables. I cried five times, but didn’t love it. Weird, huh? I thought Eddie Redmayne was the best part of the movie, was underwhelmed by the Thenardiers, and wish that Eponine’s song hadn’t been shortened. It was a beautiful film, but I’d have edited differently.
Wearing: Um… Nikes, yoga pants, a gray Hanes t-shirt, and a gray cardigan. No jewelry. Some variation of this has been my uniform for this whole week, and I know I should probably dress up a bit more for work, but I don’t have anything else that’s clean.
Cooking: Chicken. You take a bunch of chicken thighs, pour over some of Mr. Yoshida’s Gourmet Sauce – stick it in the oven for 40 minutes at 375. Serve chicken with jasmine rice and veggies of your choice. Easiest dinner ever. Everyone loves it. Can’t go wrong. I like mine with a little sriracha sauce.
Reading: I’m still on Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore.
Planning: GOING TO NEW YORK CITY NEXT WEEK.
