Expression of color

I hate the concept of ‘bucket lists.’  Life is so fragile and short, and I think I’d rather put thought and energy into experiencing life instead of just checking things off a list that ends with “and now that you’re done, hurl yourself off of a cliff.”

Thus the ‘life list’ at which a few of you have seen so far. Not things to check off, but experiences I want, accomplishments I’m seeking, skills I’m willing to learn.

pack and panic

We are going to New York.

Jeff and I don’t ‘vacation’ together often. He has the same love for quiet days at home that I do of plopping myself in a new city and learning it by wearing out the soles of my feet. The typical end result (which you will see in December) is of me packing a small bag and Jeff dropping me off to catch a plane heading off to parts unknown.

(…and I don’t even like to fly!)

106 Books: the Amy edition

Stolen from Stephen and Misty.

Misty: “These are the top 106 books most often marked as “unread” by LibraryThing’s users. I’ve bolded what I’ve read and italicized what I started but couldn’t finish…”

49 read, 2 in progress, 2 instances of sheer loathing:

The Aeneid
The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay
American Gods
Anansi Boys
