@Swimpy,
wearing: my treasured faux pony skin (well, who knows, maybe it's faux leopard) dansko clogs - I should take a photo, longish slightly a-line jean skirt, stretch under tee, long sleeved pea green tee, sweatshirt cloth 'cardigan'
hearing: the washing machine swishing
eating: nada but will have scrambled eggs en tortilla in a little bit
drinking: chocolate milk
doing: rearranging closets now that I finally put up a cross bar in the back 40 closet (that is the stuff to sell accumulation room)
looking forward to: following the wild card week football scores and making cast iron frying pan baked carmelized pear upside down tart
wanting: warmth, please, oh pretty please - but not much more warmth - I like April, May, October, November here in sandland better than July and August. And I wouldn't mind winter here at all - in fact I enjoy it generally - if heating bills weren't a financial and eco consideration.

dreaming of: seeing my cousins here again next october, and maybe doing a repeat trip back with them to california for a couple of weeks.

@tsarstepan,
Tsary, you are so talented. I wish I could just dream up a great job for you and make it happen.
What kind of job do you want?
I remember my own conflicts re having a job that involved a lot of creativity during the daylight hours (designing, drawing) and how then I had to push myself to finish a series of my own paintings after work. Thus thinking I'd be better off bagging groceries (eventually they might let me deal with the cash register) and having my own sparks left later.
I've often wondered about the many people who make lifetime jobs out of their interest and whether that tends over time to ruin the interest, or, if not ruin, dent into it.

I know that both green witch and I have expressed at some point that we tend not to talk a whole lot about landscape design (though once in a while we do) because of the phenomenon of "enough already", my words. Do IT people want to talk more about IT in their time off?

@ossobuco,
I'd love an office job where even if creativity was not the focal point, at least I know my brain was atrophying away from lack of occupational use.

@tsarstepan,
Here's to hoping you get that job tsarstepan.

Today I am wearing khaki pants and green shirt.
I am hearing cartoons again, (my granddaughter watches cartoons while getting for school and I just don't bother to turn it off right away.)
I am feeling out of sorts after participating in another Iraq thread.
I am hoping to get done with my housework early enough to go shopping before my granddaughter gets out of school. (babysit)
I am also (thinking) wondering why anyone would even care two hoots about about any of the above.
I am dreaming of summer.

(think I got em' all, didn't write them before responding to this post)

If plumbing you mean create an unintentional and improvised swimming pool in your kitchen, then yes I probably can help you in that arena. Razz

@tsarstepan,
hmm, I had something a tiny bit more contained in mind

perhaps we can help you identify a more appropriate career/employment option

film critic?
