Reading: The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter. I believe someone recommended this back when I was looking for non-YA novels with smart young characters. I do like the Mick character very much; she's a tomboy with a passion for music. I also started The Unconsoled a while back, but I'm not good at reading multiple novels at once. On Friday I got myself a Denver Public Library card and checked out some Alice Fulton books, one poetry and one nonfiction.
Eating: Colorado peaches. New Mexico green chiles (and salsa made thereof). Boiled kale as an all-purpose vegetable (on pizza, in fried rice and scrambled eggs, etc.). Flax seed oil (trying to be one of those people). Salami (one of those meat products that tastes how I remember it tasting, rather than a gamier version of itself).
Drinking: On Friday, after an opening at the MCA (a weird minimalist installation involving yarn; we thought it would have been improved by the addition of live kittens), I ordered a wine flight of California reds at this place. It was the same price as a single glass of wine, but they basically brought me three full glasses of wine. They were delicious, especially the Michael David Petite Petit, so I finished them, and ended up fairly wasted. Damn elevation! Also, Campari and soda. And I just bought a big bottle of Polish potato vodka at the awesome local liquor store, Argonaut. (I keep vodka in the freezer, natch.)
Doing: Hiking a bit: we went to Lost Lake outside Nederland, CO, yesterday, which was a delight. (Yes, there was snow on them thar hills.) Shopping too much (post-move, I've lifted the self-inflicted moratorium on buying things I don't need). Today I bought a dress that looks like TV static. Playing Rock Band at Kevin & Katie's in Lafayette. Limited song choice, but I had much fun on "Stop Me If You Think You've Heard This One Before" and "Love Is a Battlefield."
Vanity Update: My hair and skin look way better out there. Hair is sort of a who cares, but I can't get over the difference in my skin. I look three years younger! Hallelujah. I hope it lasts.
