Watching: A lot of Doctor Who. Brian and I finally got around to putting this on our list, and I really love it. I don’t think I had any doubts, though, because it combines my love of the United Kingdom with time travel; best thing ever. We’ve been slowly chipping away at the last seven seasons, and Brian hasn’t gotten sick of me pointing out some consistency errors. He must really love me, or he’s just keeping his mouth shut until the new season of RuPaul’s Drag Race starts. Which ever you’d like to believe.
Reading: Not much of anything, honestly. I know that’s terrible, but we’ve been caught up in work and Doctor Who. Who has time to read when there are sci-fi fantasy adventure shows to watch, huh? My goal over the holiday break is to finish up the third and fourth books in A Song of Fire and Ice (Game of Thrones) so I can brace myself for the beginning of the new season. I’m at a loss for what to read after that, though. Do you have any suggestions?
Thinking about: How happy I am to have a little time off over the holidays. I’m excited to spend a little extra time with Brian, but I’m mostly thrilled to get to sleep in and watch Netflix. I don’t even care how lazy that makes me sound because it will be so wonderful. I don’t know what it is about dragging a big heavy blanket over to the couch and watching a marathon combo of great movies and terrible television shows, but to me it feels magical.
Loving: That we will (finally) have insurance coverage on January 1st! It’s like we’re semi-successful adults now! Look at me! I can finally get surgery on my (perpetually busted, rugby-injured) ankle! Three full days of office visits, here I come! I’ve been talking to Brian about ankle surgery a lot because, to me, it feels a little like one of those life-long dreams that is finally about to come true. We keep trying to find a date that will work well with our schedules (we’re estimating that I won’t be able to put weight on my ankle for ~3 weeks), and there is no perfect time. We’re going to a wedding in February (as guests!), and we’ll be shooting weddings this summer (which means lots of running around and about 12 straight hours on our feet)… Maybe next winter will be the best time?
Can we suspend our health insurance until then?
Listening to: Kimbra. Partially, I want to be her/her best friend. Partially, I want my hair to look that thick and messy-perfect every day. Mostly, I’m just blown away by her all the time. I meant to find a date in her American tour that we could drive to, but almost everything was 8+ hours from us and not feasible. (Can someone get me a gig as her tour photographer? I’ll do it for free/for food.) Maybe in the next round? Until then, I’ll be listening to “Settle Down” and “Plain Gold Ring” on repeat in my
cave office. Please don’t disturb me, ok?
Looking at: Ridiculous photos of Brian (like the one above). He always strikes a great pose when we’re testing the light at wedding receptions, and this might be one of my favorites. Because I enjoy ridiculous photos, I posted that on Facebook and Twitter already today. Sorry, Brian.
