Along with the list of readables above, I thought I’d join in with Lena’s Tuesday 10. The theme this week is Things You Still Hand-write. Here is my list:

Things I Still Hand Write

And in case you can’t read my handwriting:

  1. To-do lists
  2. Grocery lists
  3. Blog post planning
  4. Shop planning
  5. Christmas card recipient list
  6. Christmas gift ideas by person
  7. Notes from client meetings/phone calls

  9. Recipe cards for my recipe box
  10. Poetry in my writing journal

How about you? Are you a write-by-hand or everything-typed person?

Tuesday Treasure Trove

This week’s list of read-worthy things. If you’re looking for Tuesday 10, just scroll down. Awesome thing of the week: This Isn’t the Petition Response You’re Looking For, the official White House response to a petition aiming to secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016. Random fun thing of the week: Giant Rubber Duck Swims in to Sydney Harbor. A less happy link from Down Under: A disturbing glimpse of Australia’s wildfires as seen from space. PSA: Your Default Narrative Settings Are Not Apolitical. An interesting read on historical accuracy and bigotry in the […]

Tuesday 10: Holiday Movies

Linking up with Lena for this week’s Tuesday 10 theme: holiday movies. I’m taking a page from her book and listing not only movies with actual holiday themes, but also movies that I like to watch this time of year OR movies that come out this holiday season that I want to see, holiday-themed or not. Mostly because I couldn’t think of 10 holiday-themed movies that I like. 😉 1. White Christmas. This gets watched every year by my family, no exceptions. I still think my younger sister and I need to karaoke that Sisters song at some point in […]

Tuesday 10: Lottery Winnings

  Linking up with Lena for the Tuesday 10. This week’s theme: If I won the lottery, the first 10 things I’d buy or do are: 1. Pay off all of my debt (credit cards, car loan, medical bills). 2. Give a big chunk of it to my mom. 4. Stick some in savings (some in particular set aside for the someday wedding). 5. Buy a new car. 6. Take a nice big long vacation (with Ian, of course). Maybe Australia, traveling around the whole continent. Maybe Europe, country-hopping. 7. House fixing up: new floors, new fridge and paying people […]

Tuesday 10: Pet Peeves

Linking up for the Tuesday 10 with Lena! This week’s theme was pet peeves, so here are 10 things that tick me off: Bad drivers. Particularly people who don’t use their turn signals but still expect to be let into my lane, and people who cut me off. Having a client call me on the phone and take up 15 minutes of my time with small talk for something trivial and simple that they could have put in an email in like 1 minute, and I could’ve read the email AND done whatever the trivial thing was in the time […]

Tuesday 10: Geeky Facts

Linking up with Lena for the Tuesday 10. 🙂 1. I used to play WoW (World of Warcraft). The recent new expansion has made me consider re-activating my account, but honestly I think I’m done with it. 2. I do still play The Sims 3. Miniature lives completely under my control AND getting to go crazy with architecture/interior design? Yes, please. There may or may not be a mini-me, mini-Ian and mini-Sienna. 3. I was definitely a nerd back in high school. In the band, National Honor Society, salutatorian, and I took so many AP classes I had enough credits […]

Tuesday 10: Things I Love About Austin

I’m linking up with Lena for this week’s Tuesday 10. This week’s ‘theme’ was Blogger’s Choice, and I decided to steal a theme from weeks previous that I missed and do 10 things I love about the place I live. So, here are my: It’s a big city (population-wise) that doesn’t feel big. As in, I’m not terrified to drive around downtown like I would be in NYC. Frustrated sometimes, because of all the one-way streets and lack of parking, but I’m not going to get lost. And if I’m walking around downtown, I’m not really worried about getting mugged. […]
