Current Book: Naamah’s Blessing by Jacqueline Carey. This one’s been sitting by the wayside forever, because I know something bad is about to happen in the book and I don’t want to read that part, haha.

Current Playlist: Nothing. I don’t listen to music while I work, typically.

Current Nail Color: Penny by Zoya, a nice copper color.

Current Food/Drink: A glass of water. And I just had leftover pizza for lunch.

Current Favorite TV Show: loving the British show Sherlock right now. Also The Mentalist.

Current Needs: A vacation. A paid vacation, specifically. Sadly, my job does not still pay me if I take time off. Perils of the self-employed.

Current Triumph: I took random bits and pieces I had laying around and successfully merged them into a bracelet yesterday.

Current Bane of My Existence: The level of my bank account.

Current Celebrity Crush: Meh. I’m not sure I really do crushes anymore.

Current #1 Blessing: Ian.

Current Indulgence: Taking a long lunch break.

Current Outfit: Skinny jeans, and a floral tee with lace trim.

Current Excitement: We’re going river tubing this weekend.

Current Mood: Tired.

Current Favorite Quote: “There is always an element of risk in love, just as there is always a certain amount of effort required to pursue or maintain it. The important thing to remember is that it is always worth it.” – Leo Buscaglia

Current Top Wishlist Item: A MacBook Air. I have some travel time coming up, and am quickly realizing my old Mac laptop is not up to snuff.

Current Favorite Product: Tough one. Probably still my spin pins.
