Just a Minute in…September

I haven’t done this for the past few months. Time just seems to have gotten away from me. I’m so sorry about that. Well, it’s officially autumn, which is my favorite time of year! I love the weather and the color and the smells and the clothes. 🙂 I feel my best this time of year. I wish I could live in a place with this kind of weather all year long.

Watching… new falls shows! So far I’m loving ABC’s ‘Eastwick’. I think it’s going my new favorite this season. And of course ‘Glee’ is just hilarious. I love their versions of popular songs. Their version of ‘Gold Digger’ was so awesome.

Listening to… Amy Winehouse. My cousin just told about a song by here called ‘Valerie’. Maybe it sounds conceited but I really love the song. lol Amy has such a soulful voice. I also recently started listening to The Veronicas. I have no idea why I didn’t listen to their music before. Maybe I’m just slow on the uptake. 🙂 But their song ‘Take Me on the Floor’ is just awesome.

Buying… so much stuff! I got myself an iPod Touch! I kept putting it off but finally my iPod Nano became completely full so I decided to just go ahead. I was go back and forth between the new Nano since that actually has a camera now or the Touch but the Touch won. Only because of the amazing touchscreen and amazing apps. If only it had a camera, then it would be perfect.

Looking forward to… November! Not only is it the month of my birth but it is also the month of NaNoWriMo or National Novel Writing Month. I’ve participated for the past few years but have yet to finish a novel. Regardless I will soldier on! I will be spending October trying to come up with a plot and doing the initial planning for my novel. Maybe this will be my year.

So what did you do this September?


iPod Touch!

Guess what? I’m making this post from my brand new iPod Touch. I’m so beyond excited right now! I’ve just been playing on it all afternoon. I have to say that the spell check is awesome too. Especially as I get used to this keyboard. 🙂 I’ll definitely have to get a picture of it up later.


useless/interesting facts…

September 8, 2009

I found this on two blogs actually so I figured I’d try it out myself. I found it on Sparkles and Crumbles and on Jemima’s blog. It came with the award above plus I have to share ten useless/interesting facts about myself.

1. I have more books that I do clothes and I can’t bear to get rid of any of them.

2. I would love to grow another 4 inches at least. I think that 5’5″ would be a very nice height to be.

3. I find it ironic that while I couldn’t wait for it to be over at the time, I would love to go back in time to high school.

4. I played Little Red Riding hood in an elementary school play but now have serious stage fright.

5. Also I used to play with worms and bugs as a kid, but if you bring a bug near me now I go completely bat shit. lol

6. I cry every time I watch a movie by Nicholas Sparks, no matter how many times I’ve watched it.

7. I’d love to learn how to ice skate.

8. I have no hand eye coordination when it comes to sports, but stick a game controller in my hand and in perfect control.

9. My favorite place I’ve ever lived was Vicenza, Italy. I’d love to go back there.

10. I love the song ‘Valerie’ by Amy Winehouse and Mark Ronson. Not just because it has my name in it. 😉

Anyone who’d like to do this is welcome. I’d love to read your responses. 😀 So comment if you do it.
