Currently In September

September 1, 2009

I am shamelessly stealing this survey from Lauren, and not only that but I am taking it one step further. A commenter on her post stated that she posted this same survey every month as a kind of recap. I love that idea! Should be fun, yes? Oh, and feel free to steal the idea yourself too. I don’t mind. :)

Current Book(s): I’m down from reading three books at once to one, at least for a few more hours. But for now I’m still plugging through Shirley by Charlotte Bronte in the attempt to complete my goal of reading all the books that I own. I do like this book, it’s just long and kind of slow. But I’m reading it out of The Complete Works of the Bronte Sisters, which is too bulky to carry on the bus. So today I think I’ll start on The Vanishing Act of Esme Lennox, which I’m borrowing from Margaret. It’s easy to carry around. :)


Current Playlist: This is really sad because I’m a singer, but I actually don’t listen to music all that much. Sometimes in the car, but I also like silence in the car so I can think or talk or pray. I do like it when walking the dogs, exercising, cooking, or cleaning. Tonight on my walk I was listening to Sandra McCracken’s “Live Under Lights and Wires” sampler available for free on NoiseTrade.

Current Shame-Inducing Guilty Pleasure: Being completely obsessed with the new season of Dancing With the Stars which starts September 21. As in, I follow many of the pros and celebrities on Twitter, and subscribe to a blog with tons of updates and information.


You might say I have “Monday Night Fever”…or not.

Current Color: Caribbean blue. I wear it almost every single day of my life.


I think I am going to adopt this pose for when I am standing around at work from now on.

Current Fetish: Let’s just skip this category and never bring it up again, okay?

Current Drink: Apparently nothing! Yesterday I didn’t have a single sip of anything until around 6:30 p.m. when I realized that I was a bit thirsty and my head hurt. I promptly poured myself a glass of ice water. I’d better get to work on my goal of drinking 64 ounces of water a day for a week straight. It might do my body good.

Current Food: I still hold to my obsession over Lean Cuisine’s chicken carbonara meal. I have it almost every day for lunch.


Current Favorite Show: I guess DWTS doesn’t count because it’s not actually on yet. The only TV show that I am watching right now is Mad Men, from Netflix, and I am only 3 episodes in. Since it doesn’t have any competition, Mad Men wins.


My Mad Men avator. It actually doesn’t look a bit like me, but it’s the best I could do with what was available. Oh but here’s one I made for my husband:


I liked his so much that I tried to convince him to sign up for Twitter just so he could use it. He said no, and I pouted.

Current Wishlist: Are you ready for this? Because I haven’t allowed myself to shop in a long time. Here we go: A women’s specific bike seat, some more biking clothes, a flat tire kit, new running shoes and socks, some red flats, a griddle, sports headphones, multi-color pens for work, riding boots, a sweater dress, new scrubs, new pants and shirts in general, a rug for our living room, blinds or shades for our living room, etc.

Current Needs: To start getting up in time to do Bible study before I leave for work. To pray more.

Current Triumphs: Finishing my residency. Making it through my day on the orthopedic floor yesterday.

Current Bane(s) of my Existence: The handle to my car, which is broken. It’s still REALLY annoying to have to roll down my window to let myself out.

Current Celebrity Crush: Julianne Hough is my #1 girl crush. Oh, like you don’t have them too?


Current Indulgence: Waaaay too much Blue Bell dutch chocolate ice cream.

Current #1 Blessing: My husband, who sings me silly love songs and leaves me love notes to wake up to. :)

Current Slang or Saying: Trying to say “my pleasure” at work instead of “you’re welcome” like we are encouraged to do. Little things like that DO make a difference when you’re stuck in the hospital.

Current Outfit: See above entry on “current color”. Boring!

Current Excitement: In two weeks I’m changing my work schedule a bit so that I will have three days off per week instead of two. That means that two of the days I work will be 12-hour shifts. Here’s hoping it’s worth it!

Current Mood: Zombie. I’m not fully awake yet.

Current Link: I want to make another plug for It’s a great place to find new music, and all you have to do is either a) tell 5 friends or b) pay what you want. There are some established artists but also a lot of up-and-comers.


Happy September!
