You know how I was going to go to bed an hour ago? Well...I got this call from a certain Mr. Wakefield...
Let me just say that ballroom is never lacking for drama.
I am done.
We shall see.

What is your current obsession?
Well...there's always the ongoing blogging obsession, and more recently farmer's markets and etsy shops. Oh! Sneakers! I might have to do a post on that later.
Coffee or tea?
Haha. Neither. Although I must admit apple cinnamon herbal tea is pretty darn good (thanks to the 10th grade tea party and croquet tournament for that piece of knowledge).
What's for dinner?
Uh...tonight? Wedding reception food? Although I'll probably throw something small together before we go. I really like food.
What was the last thing you bought?
A pepperjack cheese and ham sandwich from the Cougareat. Sooo delicious.
What are you listening to right now?
The hum of the swamp cooler in my very empty apartment (Kellie, come back!!!).
What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
I would much rather have gelato than ice cream and my favorite gelato flavors are hazelnut, alpen caramel, and donatella. As for ice cream...that one chocolate and raspberry one that Kellie loves is pretty darn addicting. Same with moosetracks.
What is your favorite color?
Blue and green. They're both favorites. (Brian Regan anyone...?)
What is your favorite piece of clothing in your wardrobe?
Oh man. Well. I love my:
loose gray vest from Urban Outfitters that I may have worn with just about every shirt I own...
hot pencil skirt with leopard lining from Express
my splatter paint NYC tee I bought while on tour
all of my skinny jeans
my Limited Too knit unwaterproof boots
my gold braid headband from Forever XXI
my fabric stud earrings shown in a post below.
They'd make one heck of an ugly outfit, but they're all my favorites. :)
What is your dream job?
Running my own research lab in some exotic location, having full freedom to research whatever I wanted.
How many times do you press the snooze button before you get up?
I don't press the snooze button. I turn off my alarm and then fall back asleep...and miraculously become conscious enough to get ready in time (or at least not super late...)
Pikachu! I choose you!!!
Now go and fill it out yourselves. :P

I have no idea...but I wish I did.
1. Being a single parent would be seriously difficult.
2. "Star Trek" is unbelievably awesome.
I think I have a good post brewing inside of me. I'll see if I can disconjoin (Josh, that was for you) my thoughts tomorrow.

Like, I wish I had written these:
Deconstruct: what you think you know about life and love.
I´m slipping through your fingers like sand. Please, Please, Please… Tighten your grip.
Waiting for us is like waiting for a 9 in minesweeper. I’m not sure if I will ever get it, but something tells me if I spend enough time, avoid all the right mines … I’ll find you.
— M, the geek
I'm sitting here in my deconstructed room as Kellie starts packing up and I'm reading blogs and I read Alyssa's post about missing Europe and I have this terrible feeling that I will never get there. I almost started to cry...totally out of the blue. ("blue lips, blue veins, blue-the color of our planet from far, far away" fav song of the moment)
I have more than enough money to go to France just sitting in my bank account. And all of a sudden I'm scared to death that it'll all get spent up on ballroom shoes, rent, food, movie tickets, lessons, etc...
Is it awful that sometimes I think that once I'm done with ballroom my life will really start? That once I no longer have rehearsals and competitions I can finally focus on chemistry and actually do an internship or study abroad?
How much longer can I pull off sticking an appendage in every pool?
