10 Things, in List form

1. Despite, or, because of the weather, all I want is fresh fruit. I didn't have any Saturday morning, so I stood at my sink and ate all the fruit flavors out of a bag of jelly bellies. I remedied my fruit crisis Saturday night, when I bought a watermelon from Trader Joe's.

2. My downstairs neighbor has always smoked, but it was like a once a day, usually just on weekends kind of thing. I don't know if she's suddenly under a lot of pressure, but it has become everyday, all day. I'm marching down there today. My nose is dry, my head aches. I can't live like this. Unless I start smoking too.

3. Today's post on The T-Shirt Project is pretty awesome. Friday's wasn't too shabby either.

4. 4 days until she visits.

5. 5 days until I run a 5k.

6. I'm re-reading Anne of Green Gables. I can't think of much that could make me happier right now.

7. Spring has to come. It just has to.

8. I've had my Winter Waterloo. I can no longer wear tights. I go bare-legged to church, in spite of 40 degree temperatures. I have compromised enough by pulling my winter coat back out of the closest. This 2nd winter nonsense has to stop somewhere, and I'm putting my bare foot down.

9. I still want to marry Gilbert Blythe.

10. If you were coming to New York for a visit, which would you prefer: The Donut Plant, that has the most interesting donuts (brooklyn blackout, tres leches, creme brulee, meyer lemon), which are also amazing; or, Peter Pan, which has a more traditional selection, but is purportedly the best donut? I'll be honest, as a donut lover, I'm at a loss.


  1. I AM coming to New York to visit, and I am a donut purist, so I'm pro-Peter Pan.

  2. A list of things that made me sigh: Anne of Green Gables, spring, donuts, Gilbert.

    I also sighed over your smoking neighbor because I have one of my very own who is an every hour-on the hour kind of smoker. And not someone you can just politely ask to tone it down a bit.

  3. Fair enough, Liz. Peter Pan is in Greenpoint, Brooklyn, so brush up on your Polish before you come.

    Rachel, tell me about it. All of it.

    And this smoking thing, I don't know what I'm going to do. It's driving me nuts. I feel like I'm living in a casino over here, but without the fun.

  4. I claimed Gilbert for my own, long before you did!
