This Week at the Intersection of Thursday Avenue and Thirteenth Street

Thirteen Things I Look Forward To

1. Friday. It's just my favorite day of the week. Work is done. Time for fun!

2. Acting class. It's my one evening a week when I get to feel completely in my element. Such a good feeling!

3. Seeing my eSuitor.

4. Gray's Anatomy. It's a great way to end the weekend.

5. Church. Yes, I actually wrote that. I feel like something is missing when I am not regularly worshipping God and having fellowship with other believers.

6. Reading comments people leave on my blog. ;)

7. Christmas. It's just the greatest holiday. Every year, the day after Christmas, I always think, "Just 364 days to go...".

8. Autumn. I may feel differently about this now that I live in Southern California. In Texas, summer is oppressively hot, and it usually lasts for about 5 months. When the cool temperatures of autumn finally come, it feels like water for a parched sojourner. I just love autumn. I love the clothes, the weather, the color. I just let it wash over me, and I never feel ready for it to end. (It does help, though, to know that the end of autumn means Christmas is a comin'!)

9. Spontaneous outbursts of song. Anyone who knows me at all will tell you that I like to hum little tunes. Sometimes, I am unaware of my humming. When I lived in NYC, there were always people around, and it was hard to find a place to belt out a loud tune (my favorite way to sing). I didn't have a car, which is a natural locale for my best concerts to take place. So when I was waiting on the train platform, I would have brief mini concerts. When a subway would be coming down the tunnel and it would drown out the loudest noise with its own, I would sing show tunes at the top of my lungs for a few seconds. And then I would stop before the train did. Those little moments helped me stay sane. Kind of like the ladies room at my current job. Great acoustics with all that tile!

10. Big hugs.

11. Mexican food.

12. Seeing my family.

13. Friday. Did I say that already? One day to go!!!

Great list. :) Reminded me of my Grandma, who is often known to burst into song. It's great! We know some pretty fun old songs because of her.

Mmmm. Mexican food. Yummy. Maybe we should have some soon...I could go for a 'rita, too, like Dot.

Church. You know I'm an athiest, but I will admit that I really like church. I like the sense of cool, calm, and community that is found there. I thought of converting at one point in my life, but couldn't reconcile my beliefs enough to believe in God, which seems to be a big part of Church! ;)

Christmas...I also LOVE Christmas. And Thanksgiving. And here in Walnut Creek, when it gets SO hot, I really look forward to Autumn, too. :)

Have a great weekend with eSuitor! Hope your dad is doing OK.

Hi Tracy :) I look forward to Friday too! And Autumn. Obviously, it's my favorite season as well. haha I also look forward to some day meeting at some really great mexican restaurant and having a 'rita with you, my new friend!


Tracy said...

Yea, Dot! Sounds like a plan!

The Intersection of Friday and Coffee provided me a grand start to the morning.
