A Moo Moment: Things I Currently Find Amusing

On this rainy Friday, I figured I'd take a moment to spout about the things that I find comforting. My current favorite things, if you will.

  • Strawberry jam on Jewish rye for breakfast.
  • Red wine, especially the Spanish or Argentine variety.
  • The three ABs on TV: Anthony Bourdain, Alton Brown, and Alec Baldwin.
  • Knitting... that scarf will be ready by summer. Dammit.
  • Running with Bear. Moo runs. Moo staggers. Bear power-walks. It's sad that the dog's in better shape than me.
  • Pho ga... there's nothing like good chicken noodle soup.
  • Trying to cook Indian food. Yes, you just heard the collective horrified gasp of many Indian grandmothers.
  • Pilates with J. You know it burns so good when it hurts to cough afterwards.
  • Eating vegetables. I hate beets.
  • Tinkering with my new espresso maker.
  • Pondering what to do with the rest of my life. Eeek!
  • Working through seven seasons of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine. In the 90's, I gave up on it after the original first season. I had no idea DS9 turned out to be so good. Second only to The Next Generation, methinks.
  • American Gladiators. I would totally apply to be on that show if I wouldn't be smushed like an insect by the gladiators.
  • The Other Boleyn Girl. Trashy, dramatic, riveting... wait, it's the English monarchy! The book was great and I expect the movie to be pretty good. Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, and Eric Bana are the icing on the cake.
And that's it for now. Perhaps I should turn this into a Dr. Cox-ian rant and end it with "... and Hugh Jackman." Scrubs fans, you know what I'm talking about.
