THURSDAY THIRTEEN #199

 THIRTEEN UP-TO-THE-MINUTE THINGS ABOUT ME

I stole this from some other blogger. I apologize for not giving him or her attribution but I no longer remember where it came from.

1. Outside my window… is the neighborhood's fanciest and tallest apartment building. I'm surprised no one seems to have their Christmas lights or tree up yet.

2. I am thankful… that my Thanksgiving Day birthday celebration went so well. I'd been dreading it, but I actually had a nice time.

3. In the kitchen… are the cats' no-longer-full bowls. They just ate and are now contentedly napping.

4. I am wearing… an I LOVE LUCY nightshirt.

5. I am creating… yet another TT!

6. I am going…to avoid Coca Cola for the rest of the evening. Damn that caffeine!

7. I am reading… I Remember Nothing by Nora Ephron. It's delightful.

8. I am learning… to lean on people more. Lately my friends have really come through for me when I have needed support.

9. I am pondering… what to do with the coupon from my local salon. Massage? Eyebrow shaping?

10. A favorite quote… "East is east and west is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce they taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does." Groucho Marx

11. One of my favorite things… NCIS. If you see Mark Harmon, tell him I love him.

12. A few plans for the rest of the week… l'm taking Friday and Monday off. Gotta burn those vacation days before the end of the year.

13. A peek into my day… I have a client presentation Thursday. It's a conference call. I hate those because I suspect my audience is really playing "Hang the Butcher" on their end and not really paying attention at all.

I think I need one of those I Love Lucy shirts. My puppy is asleep too :)

Oh do get a massage. They are wonderful and very pampering.

Good luck with your conference call!

Ooooh a salon coupon! I am in desperate need of an eyebrow shaping. But I'm going to vote for the massage. :-)

Okay, I confess - I'm going to steal this one for a future TT. I really liked your responses to the prompts. :)

Happy TT!

Like the Groucho quote.

What do you find appealing about the book?

Almost TGIF.

YaY! Happy Birthday!

I can't drink caffeinated sodas after 1pm or I'll be up all night.

I haven't tried any of Nora Ephron's books but I clicked on the link you posted and she sounded brilliant and witty!
I'll make sure to check on her books at the library next time.
