Currently- April 2014- The Jet Lag Edition


Book
I'm in the middle of After I'm Gone by Laura Lippman. A very well-written mystery set in Baltimore and told from from various points of view along several decades. Fascinating characters and a great story. I need to download Lippman's  other novels.

Music
Our iPod stopped shuffling during a long drive in Italy, and instead decided to play the music in alphabetical order. Now I have Aimee Mann stuck in my head.


TV

The DVR is full of two week's worth of stuff. I just need to keep my eyes open long enough to actually watch any of it.

Perfume
Shalimar Light. I craved it for days while I was away. But I did bring a couple of new things from Italy. You'll hear about it soon.

Makeup
The new Shu Uemura pen eyeliner. Review coming soon.

Frequently Worn Outfit/Item
I really like my Rag & Bone skinny jeans for days I can't decide what to wear.

Food
Anything lemon-flavored. I had the most amazing lemon granita on the side of the road somewhere above Sorrento.  I wish I could have a lemon tree in the yard.

Guilty Pleasure
Lemon soda. See a theme here?

Bane
One of the kitties (we suspect Kosh) has taken his revenge on my slippers. Stinkily.

Joy
Coming home to the kitties.

Anticipation
Bedtime. Sorry.

Wishlist
Summer dresses. And a summer to wear them. It's supposed to snow tonight.

Random Thought
Not so random and certainly not original, but there's no place like home.
