HUGELY busy getting ready for Context 27 this weekend, so I’m putting together my list of ten squees while rocking it to SOAD (System of a Down).
In no particular order… Here’s days 19/365 through 28/365!
1) A Clean Office: I now have art up on the walls! HUZZAH! And, a pile o’ boxes to unpack yet. Boo. But? It’s very, very good start!
2) Kirigami: One of the pieces that I put up in the kinda-but-not-really-forest-of-skulls bathroom is a piece by a Chinese artist of a raven. Kirigami is the art of cutting paper; you can find out more by visiting the Origami resources website.
3) Soundwave!: Picture hung up, and my Soundwave model is at the ready. YAY!
4) Fall: Okay, I may be the only person in the universe who’s not a fan of pumpkin spice everything. Like bananas, I like mine real thank you. I LOVE Fall, though. And? I do have something pumpkin spice I can try–pumpkin spice curry!
5) No Disassemble, NO!: I take great pleasure in assembling furniture. For the first time ever–we now have an entertainment cabinet. Woo!
6) Getting Sh*t Done: Closed the chapter on a major project last week and looking forward to getting more done. I like the word “DONE!”
7)The “Extended” Versions of Films: It is now official. The extended version of films are often better and more detailed than the shorter versions. Such a HUGE difference extra content makes for movies like Snow White and the Huntsman, The Abyss, The Lord of the Rings films, and more!
8) Halloween Decorations: Because it’s the one time out of the year that I can find the things I want to decorate my house with.
9) Sugar Skull designs: The design of the sugar skull has now made its way into the mainstream. I like the colorful designs and found a decoupage skull I can decorate. Already bursting with ideas! Still, I want to point out that The Day of the Dead is part of Mexican culture. I love the art, but I think it’s important to recognize where this comes from.
10) Maneki Neko: Maneki Neko are Japanese good luck charms always make me squee. Love the lucky cat and glad I found one to hang up!
- Mood: Errands, ahoy!
Caffeinated Beverages Consumed: On my second cup of joe. Rinse, repeat.
Work-Out Minutes Logged Yesterday: More housework. Ugh.
In My Ears: My cat is yelling at me. Whaaaaa?
