Today, March 24th 2010

1. I have never ever had allergies. This spring, the allergy gods are taking their vengence very seriously.

2. I work better and faster and more efficiently when I don't have anyone else to rely on. Frankly, I turn into superwoman.

3. Cadbury Mini Eggs come only once a year; you'd better believe I've got my name in that pot, my hand in that jar, my finger in that pie.

4. I've been mentally planning outfits for Europe for weeks. Now I'm considering making myself visual printouts - this top with those bottoms, these shoes and that necklace, coupled with this handbag; or maybe this top and that handbag. Is that obsessive?

5. Mailing color samples is so satisfying: small squares of color, carefully labeled, tucked into an envelope, address written with flourish, stamp affixed, color-matched address label opposite (blue labels for the Olympic stamps, brown labels for the Liberty Bell Forever stamps), sealed and sent. I know, it's obvious now. I'm totally obsessive. And likely compulsive about it as well.

6. I washed the dishes three times today. Moral of the story: they're done.


  1. I love this list. And it's totally okay to be obsessive about planning outfits. Especially for Paris.

  2. Come clean my house. I promise not to let you even THINK you can rely on me to help. Just helping you reach your full potential...
    and as much as I applaud and respect (read:judge and deny my own OCD), do NOT make visual printouts of your outfits. That's so NOT cool.

  3. but graham... who's to know? (and frankly, it's not like i'm the picture of cool - ya know?!) reagradless - ok, fine. i'll resist.
