Smell: lilacs. I really think it might be my most favorite smell of all the smells. I went to the botanic gardens recently and i rediscovered this drug of a scent.
Pen: Pilot G-2. Is there anything better? Seriously.
Recent lines on TV: on Golden Girls last night:
"Eat dirt and drop dead, Trash!"
I'm just waiting for an opportunity to use this on someone. Will it be you? Only time will tell. And you should be so lucky. [bonus point: who said it?]
Also, watching a BBC show, a young bullied but tough girl shoved her female classmate against the wall with her fists in the bully's face: "See these? They smell like dead girls. Think on!" Also waiting to use this one.. sort of.
Hand soap: Mrs. Meyer's. I love her. She smells so good, in all her varieties.
Shower soap: Dove Sensitive Skin
Song: basically any song Julian sings. He has a lovely singing voice but also, he often chooses his own lyrics which are: "bus." That's all. Like, Twinkle Twinkle Little Star with just "bus." Picture it. Sing it right now. So funny (and innovative).
Movie: Confessions of a Shopaholic. Yep, I just said that. Alright, obviously that's not my favorite of ALL TIME, but I do like it and it is a mega-guilty pleasure. It's just funny to me, alright? and it's been on TV a lot lately and i keep staying on it and watching it and I don't know why. I'm so ashamed. But at least i'm honest.
and on that note, Man celebrity: Hugh Dancy. He-LLO.
War: WWII. Lately I've been reading a lot of books and things set during WWII and I really love it. I love stories of hiding from and escaping the Nazis. And about the way people thought during that time, people's individual, personal stories. I am just fascinated. It's almost surreal to me. Every time I spend some time reading, thinking and learning about it I wonder, how did that happen?? And stories of survival and people's will to live always inspire me. In fact, I finished my book and am desperate for a new one. I think it's time for a little Man's Search for Meaning.
Sandwich: Peanut butter & banana. An old classic. I like to mush up the banana inside the peel and then ooze it out and spread it on the slice. It's preferable to use a mini-banana. I also like to make it on these, and then slice it like a tiny pizza. The fun never ends in our house.
