Last Week: A Summary

  1. Tumbleweeds really are kind of cool. 
  2. My job takes me to some very remote places with some very beautiful skyscapes, and for that I am immensely grateful.

  3. SNOW! After a pitiful winter season last year, the first proper snowstorm of this year deposited a reasonable amount of snow in my yard.
  4. Things my ridiculous dog has tussled with in the past seven days: a sock, a pillow, his fleece dog sweater, every single one of his toys which I neatly placed into his basket and are now strewn all over the floor, and a Tupperware that he managed to sneak off the counter. He’s a brat.
  5. What I have listened to over the past seven days: Harry Potter audiobooks, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Kathryn Calder, Mozart, Norah Jones, Regina Spektor, Jimi Hendrix on repeat, and some random 3-second snippets of songs on SongPop.
  6. How many miles I drove over the past seven days: a lot. Sorry. Lost count after 1,000.
  7. After a certain point in the evening, making sense of continental philosophy just doesn’t work well for me.
  8. Chocolate chip cookies and watching BBC’s Top Gear is more fun than reading about Derrida.
  9. Pretty sure I’ll never be able to eat Ruffles sour cream & cheddar chips again. Ugh.
  10. Cast iron cooking implements = greatest ever.
