I feel rusty.
For real, I’ve only written one blog post in the last bazillion weeks. Obviously math is my strong suit, especially since they declared crapton an official number, roughly equivalent to 267.89 macro-ounce-bytes. Yes, I just made that up. You should take everything I say with a grain of salt and perhaps a dash of pepper. I am a food blogger after all.
I figure what better way to shake off the cobwebs and get back into the swing of things than with a little Currently action. For those of you new to my blog: Welcome, I hope I haven’t scared you yet. Please feel free to stick around, get a feel for the place, see if my vibe is flowing for you (♫ “sometimes I rhyme slow, sometimes I rhyme quick” ♫) and join in on the fun. Rough translation: once a month I talk about what’s Currently happening in my little world and if you’re so inclined, you can let me know in the comments section what’s currently happening in yours. I hope you’re so inclined.
And away we go.
Current Book: After two plus months, I finally finished A Dance with Dragons. I feel like that deserves a celebration of its own, but that’s not the point of this little game, although I think it should be; me celebrating with some jazz hands and maybe a little booty bounce. Yes, that should always be the point. Alas real life interferes, and my current book of choice is Stephen King’s latest and hopefully greatest Mr. Mercedes.
Current Music: I just discovered the joys of Pandora (thank you little brother for bringing me to the current century), and as a result I’ve been rocking out to Motown and the Golden Oldies. I can’t wait to create my next playlist and do some more booty bouncing. ♫ “Now it’s time to bounce that booty.” ♫
Current Guilty Pleasure: enjoying an extra long five-day weekend. Talk about luxurious, although to be honest, I don’t feel a shred of guilt. Nope, not one bit.
Current Nail Color: clear, no surprises here, although I did sport a pale pink for a week or so last month, and it inevitably starting chipping a day and a half later, which irked me to no end, so I went back to the basics: clear.
Current Drink: I’m dabbling in some H2O action with a slice of cucumber and a wedge of lime. Good stuff.
Current Food: Veggies, veggies, and more veggies. CSA season has come to Cleveland, and I am eating my greens and then some, and by that I mean greens, purples, reds, whites and pretty much all the colors of the rainbow. It’s magically delicious over here.
Current Favorite Show: I’m going to have to take a pass since I’ve haven’t really turned on the TV lately, which I figure is a good thing.
Current Wish List: I wish the very nice deer who moved in across the street would stay away from my flowers. Let’s call her Esmerelda, Esme for short. Well, she ate all my day lilies and the majority of my hostas, that dirty non-birdie.
We had a nice conversation, Esme and I, where I politely yet firmly asked her to stay out of my yard, while explaining the rest of the neighborhood is free game. I’m pretty sure she flipped me off before she walked away.
Current Needs: I’d love to win the lotto or find some extra hours in my week, but at the end of the day, I actually need for nothing. That my friends is the greatest thing.
Current Triumphs: Kicking my baby brother’s bucket in some tennis yesterday, and it’s possible there’s some revisionist history going on. To be fair, I did warn you to take everything I say with a grain of salt.
Current Bane of Existence: as much as I love my greens and believe you me I do, I currently have four heads of lettuce, a bundle of kale, a cluster of Swiss Chard, a boatload of Bok Choy and at least three kohlrabi in my crisper right now. No worries, I plan to go Pop-Eye on its ass.
Current Indulgence: Dragon Fruit because this pretty little pink pod cost an arm and a leg or approximately $8 and that’s after talking the seller down. It tastes like a ginormous kiwi.
Current Blessing: my baby brother and his wonderful lady love have been staying with us the past few days. It doesn’t hurt they brought me color coordinated gifts, which pleases my self-diagnosed OCD to no end. We also made it a point to do all the things, which involved a lot of eating and at least two big salads. Hmm, I wonder if I can sneak in a third before they leave.
Current Outfit: my pajamas, the more appropriate pair, because hello I still have company.
Current Excitement: kayaking my way around Cleveland or at least it’s waterways. It gives me an entirely new and legitimate reason to yell out “Stroke! Stroke! Stroke!”
Current Link: Look up… In the sky. It’s a bird, it’s a plane. No wait, it’s Quiche Love. Yep, at the top of my site, I added a link for my quiche creations and pretty soon I will share my latest and greatest recipe: The Greek. This baby is hotter than the World Cup right now. ♫ Ole, ole, ole, ole ♫ Sorry, couldn’t help myself.
Current Mood: I am content after spending a lovely and long weekend with my family. I’m also ready for a cocktail and a nap, specifically in that order.
Do you create itineraries when you have company in town? Have you read Stephen King’s latest book? Feel free to get in on this action and answer any of the Currently questions above. Current Blessing? Current Triumphs? Current Mood? Current Deviant Activity…just seeing if you were still paying attention.
