Tonight we're going to a friend's house for a bit of a dance party and a catchup. It'll be nice. It's at my friend Jill's house. It'll be nice to catch up with friends we haven't seen since our NYC friends left.

At lunch I rode my bike home to have an icey pole and watch some daytime tv for an hour. I rode back to work and realized I was wearing only one earring :( This means one of two things. 1) I lost the earring while riding my bike 2) I lost my earring at home while changing my sweater. Here's hoping its the latter :)

I'm really looking forward to the weekend. I think tomorrow will be a cruisy one and Sunday night we're going to a friend's house for dinner and to watch the Oscars. I'd like to see Alice in Wonderland at cinema maybe... Its meant to rain all weekend, so we'll see how the afternoons pan out.

Last night "Marriage Ref" - Jerry Seinfeld's new show aired for the first time. It was hil-larious!!! Daniel and I were laughing so hard we almost cried. I can tell its going to be a weekly instalment in our tv watching schedule.

TGIF... thank goodness its Friday ;)

New Faves

Band: Wilco. How had I never heard of these guys before???!!! I was recently introduced to them by a friend. Loving them!

Flax oatmeal (porridge) with peanut butter. The peanut butter melts into the oatmal. Unbelievable.

Trader Joe's. Ok. I've known about Trader Joe's for a while. But recently I've been getting more adventurous there. Everything at Trader's is SO good! We tried some chocolate covered pomegranate seeds the other day (with icecream) and it was heaven in a bowl.

Curbing my sugar addiction (which is out of control!) For the last month I've been snacking on apples, crackers. Cutting out all processed foods. Nothing with High Fructose Corn Syrup. No fun sweet snacks or chips etc. Eating complex carbohydrates, fresh and whole foods. I'm feeling 10 x better. I haven't felt sluggish in weeks. I've managed to survive my husband getting really sick with colds/flues (twice in 2 months) and not get sick. Motivation: feeling good. It might sound boring to skip normal pasta and go for organic rice bran pasta. Or skip cheetos and eat an apple with a little peanut butter. But wow I feel good. You are what you eat.

Anything military inspired (clothing). I love a tough/edgy look, although what I end up wearing always borders on the cute side (argh). I think it has something to do with being 5'4".

Wellington boots aka gumboots aka rain boots. I bought some quite a while back. While it doesn't rain much in Southern California, I get all excited when it does. I know I can splash about in the rain and not be worried about my precious shoes. Gum boots are a lot of fun. One day I'll have to wear them a lot in Sydney where we get torrential downpours in winter and just before summer (think tropical weather).
