Kate Atkinson, Life After Life (via celebratingorselfmedicating)
one of the few passages I have enjoyed in this book. Trying hard to get through it before our bookclub meets next week!
I changed my avatar so don’t get confused when you see the photo on your dashboard! The other one was more than 3 years old so I figured an update was needed.
I’m currently obsessing over my blog’s "tattoo" tag. I need to decide what I want (and where I want it) so I can get my first tattoo. Realistically, I can see myself as one of those people who becomes addicted, though.
Here’s my footage from the Idina concert yesterday. It’s 18+ minutes long and features a clip from all but two songs (my memory was full and I had to delete apps. Bye bye Nike Training Club, because Idina trumps working out. I couldn’t bring myself to delete Candy Crush, because I’ve been working on that for too long). If you click through to the actual youtube page, I’ve given a timeline breakdown and her complete set list. Also included is some of her between song conversations, because we all know that’s the best stuff :)
I still plan to do a written recap when I can formulate coherent thoughts. I’m still in post-concert fangirl mode right now haha.
I just got home from my first live Idina Concert after four years of desperately wanting her to play in Chicago. (She did last year at Ravinia, but I was working in CT all summer). I’ll write a full post tomorrow and hopefully get up the video I took (I had to delete like 5 apps and a ton of pics to make room). She’s so amazing. Swooning. And her dress was adorable.
Please stop being so bloody hot. And if you must be hot, please at least stop being so freaking humid.
Just learned the term maladaptive daydreaming. This certainly is new information, and slightly reassuring.
I’m about to re-read the Bell Jar and am kind of terrified I’m going to start overidentifying with Esther Greenwood again. I’m certainly in a much better place than when I read it for the first time 2 years ago (and that book helped me so much then), but it’s still scary cuz I can feel that I’m in a transitional funk so I’m not sure what my reaction will be. I love that book so much, though, so I’m afraid it’ll lose some meaning this time around.
So excited. I had no idea she is randomly doing a small town Illinois concert. And best of all, the general admission tickets were free.
SO FREAKING EXCITED! This makes up for the fact that she finally came to play with the CSO at Ravinia last year when I was out of the state working for two months.
