Things I Love Thursday

September 17, 2009

[sorry lately i’ve almost forgotten i have a blog]

+resolving my horrific mosquito problem (via closing the window at night god i can’t believe it took me so long)
+earl grey in the morning, orange blossom white tea at night
+making to do/plans lists and crossing things off
+the sound of chalk on blackboards, pens on paper. i think i like lectures way too much for my own good.
+speaking of which: my personality class. it’s just about the most interesting lecture i’ve ever had
+packing satisfying lunches. who knew a sandwich could be so effective?
+reading sex blogs. seriously it’s the most fascinating/wonderful thing in the world to me.
+naps, even if they are over slept. a sleep deprived laura can only take so much.
+new episodes of gossip girl, mad men, and glee. they are all so utterly brilliant.
+cute foreign people on the subway. so. so. adorable in their enthusiastic attentiveness.
+smiling at strangers. i know this should be on my list all the time but especially lately, it’s more noticeable and wonderful.
+the sweetest missed connection, ever.
+omg let’s hyperventilate some more because i will never get enough of FALL. WEATHER.

what about you, lovely readers? it’s nearly the weekend and what little (or big) things are bringing you big big smiles?

    Where does one find orange blossom white tea? That sounds spectacular!

    Laura, I adore your blog. It’s nice to read of so much optimism in the world.
    I’m listening to Belle & Sebastian, which always gives me a big smile.

    -A bloody handprint on the door of the subway station in Copley.

    -Reveling in the discomfort of my English class; it seems to radiate from all of the people there.
    I deem Lord of the Flies to be too scary of a concept to stomach for these kids. For most of them, living a day without texting is the limit of extreme.

    -High heeled Doc Martin-esque boots I found in a thrift/vintage store at Kendall.

    -Matcha Green Tea powder! I just had a homemade Green Tea Latte with it. 🙂

    -Nibbling the edge of a bar of Belgian artisan chocolate with pepper and rose in it while enjoying a solitude night in Harvard Square after a lovely day.

    -Curling up in a chair on the second story of The Coop while reading De Corpore circa 1656, by Hobbes.

    -Trying on silk things and velvet things in Saks.

    -Charles Street and the rickety-but-not-obnoxious cobblestones.

    -Having a good chat with the girls in Lush and buying a bubble bath fizz.

    and more
