wearing: Cargo shorts, even though my wife frowns upon them in the winter, and a rugby shirt.
hearing: A Rat Terrier vs a Belgian Shepard, it sounds vicious but they are just playing....but the rough language and name calling....goodness, I'm all aflush.
eating: Was eating truck stop chicken {strips} I think they put herion in them....I just can't get enough, just can't get enough....they are cajun flavored though, and that's about the same as herion on the addiction scale I do believe. For dessert, cherry Jolly Ranchers.
drinking: Iced tea, it's store bought though, which is almost a sacrilege, so please don't report me to the Board of Southern Gentlemen.....I'd hate to lose my membership.
feeling: A bit chilled as Jack Frost is nipping at my bare toes, but it feels so good too.
doing: Was probably boring a young lass, as I was typing about an odd thing, so as usual I cut it way short.
looking forward to: Turkey Day of course, but also a set of flags that I ordered this afternoon.
wanting: That's a secret, so I'll give the standard answer, peace on Earth.

@2PacksAday,
wearing: skinny jeans, black tunic shirt, black boots with jeans tucked in. Hair is in a pony tail. I have new earrings Smile My mom bought me double so I have duplicates in both my first set of piercings and my second set.
hearing: blaring of the radio in the backyard whilst the boys play hybrid trampofootball
eating: nope
drinking: nope
feeling: Worried that Two Pack might lose his membership to the Board of Southern Gentlemen. Store bought tea is truly scandalous. Though his Good Ol' Boy card is probably got another hole punch in it from buying food from a truck stop. Wink
doing: playing
looking forward to: Bed - I think I might be getting a cold - my neck hurts under my ears funny...something'd not right there.
wanting: Peace on Earth's good. But today I would settle for Beth's butler and possibly a chef. I wonder if Butler's rub feet?

wearing: Black velvet jeans, charcoal gray long-sleeved t, slightly lighter charcoal gray cozy sweater.
hearing: ----
eating: Nothing, need to go to the store. Still not used to it getting dark so early, thought it was later than 5:49, not that bad.
drinking: Water, sort of.
feeling: Relieved I got some more stuff done.
doing: Wrapping up on the computer.
looking forward to: More from 2Packs!
wanting: This week to go smoothly (too much crammed in a small period of time and last week was lost to election stuff and then sick kid so I'm kinda running in overdrive BUT progress is being made, so.)

Wait a second! Mismi! That's my outfit! I planned on wearing that today. How truly embarrassing that we're wearing the same ensemble. I'm truly mortified!

eating: Nothing right now.
drinking: Water.
smelling: Subliminally the Winter scent from Bath and Body Works in a wall socket thingy.
feeling: A tad too toasty with a laptop on my lap and the steam heater on a blasting.
doing: Watching the latest episode of Grimm.
looking forward Whatever the next thing is.

Quite copying me Mismi! Mad Wink
Thanksgiving with a friend in an Upper East Side diner is my final answer. Very Happy

@tsarstepan,
wearing: oldie but goodie black danskin tights (I might like some more of those this winter, will have to see if they still are in business), long rose colored skirt with flower pattern, Rose Cafe black tee shirt (I have these in four colors - in this case the rose is red) with elderly and now oversized dark grey univ sweat shirt. Sort of like wearing a blanket. Drugstore Okabashi rubber sandals (brown). Dangly earrings to cheer myself up. (I have a cold, dagnabbit)

add: The Rose is my "office" when I am back in Venice/LA.

hearing: my ears/brain/tinnitus as usual when it's quiet around here
eating: nope
drinking: considering making a hot toddy, whatever that is
smelling: smelling not in my repertoire except for a few items, ginger, for example. No ginger present at this time.
feeling: fond of my dog, Furwoof (Katy otherwise)
doing: just finished making chicken stock; considering doing the dishes, which I've avoided today.
Might make a miso soup with browned spicy tofu, some already cooked mushrooms, and chopped scallions. Or might not. Lazy = my name.
looking forward to: finishing a book and starting another one
wanting: as usual, to get my act together


Adds, re the univ sweat shirt - I'm not the rah rah type. It's just that I went there to school twice, I worked there for a long time, twice, and the med center folks figured out what was going on with my eyes. But the best thing was when I first went there to school, I was amazed by a whole new world of people and stuff to learn.

awww why!? We could be twins!

Don't you think it's sad Twinkies are bankrupt? Even if you don't eat them - the phrase "twinkies" (twins) will no longer mean anything to coming generations except baby talk kind of babble for twins...perhaps. Possibly.

No twinkies. wow.

@Sturgis,
wearing: blue jeans and the same sweatshirt, same brown rubber shoes, different earrings
hearing: barking dog (neighbor's)
eating: just finished a nice and hot sardine potato fishcake with spicy mayo on the side
drinking: coffee
feeling: glad to be warm enough
doing: tapping keys on the computer keyboard
looking up: scalloped potato recipes: a girl needs her comfort food
wanting: long list. First on it is some thick gardening gloves that will ward off goathead and similar stickers. Those even go through my leather ones, so I probably need to double up, which might mean two new pairs of gloves, which seems like a clumsy idea. We'll see.
Looking forward to: oven roasting some spareribs with black bean sauce; also, the code in my node going away so I can meet Diane for coffee one of these days.

Wearing: Usual shorts, and some kind of Lodge T-shirt, I keep forgetting to read it before I put it on.
Hearing: Family Guy
Eating: Beef stew
Drinking: Generic cola, it's not bad. I asked my daughter to fix a glass for me, she did not want to, so what I ended up getting was a glass full to the brim of crushed ice with maybe 3 oz of soda in it.
Feeling: One with the Force.
Doing: Was reading a love note {more of a "oh ****, I think we got caught" note} that I found today from 1989, that was tucked away in an old gas tax file....{city stuff}....it was a copy.
Looking: At pictures of Snake Plissken.
Wanting: Nothing really, as usual I am content as is.

By the way, saw a video a few days ago with a lady and a vacuum cleaner, the hose had fallen out of the unit, but she was still working away, dragging only the hose around.

This made me think of a story Soz once told, and I nearly laughed the cleft off my chin.
