Things I Love Thursday

Ok, I'm trying out this "Things I Love Thursdays" thing (as pioneered by Gala Darling), because I can't always be crabby (or can I?) So, without further ado, here are things that are revving my engine:

<3 Farmer's markets and all the bounty of spring. I can't wait to hop down to Horton Plaza during lunch hour today and buy some fresh goodies! I especially love Plant Guy, who sells houseplants, herb plants, etc. He's really nice and sold me the coolest lipstick plant (which I haven't yet killed!).

<3 My new leather jacket! That I haven't unpacked yet, but Jesus, if it works on me I'm gonna wear that baby everywhere.

<3 "Hide and Seek" by Imogen Heap - one of my very favorite songs. Rich with subtlety and electronic goodness. I listen to it many, many times each day.

<3 Not dating! Yes, you heard that right. I gave up dating after realizing it was a waste of time and chipped away at my self-esteem. Who needs a guy, anyway? Between my friends, my neuroses and my adorable pet ratties, I'm all set! (Not to say that I would turn down Mr. Wonderful if he crossed my path...but I am just saying NO to awkward dates at Starbucks with boring guys I really don't connect with.)

<3 Giving up coffee! It made me tired and cranky at first, but giving up coffee (like giving up TV) gives me the ability to lord it over others, and I enjoy that. Hee!

<3 Biking to work! It leaves me joyfully exhausted, and I sleep like a baby. Also, my thighs/butt are already toning up nicely, and that's always a plus!

<3 The Photoshop Disasters blog - Hilarious and scary at the same time. Since I work in media/advertising I've witnessed a few Photoshop Disasters firsthand.

<3 Fashion Toast - A new blog discovery. Rumi is like the tall, gorgeous friend I don't have, and I love her totally unpredictable daily outfits.

Ooh, I'm in a better mood already!

#3. i heart this song too. someone put it on a "break-up" mix cd for me. when in the right mood it can haunt you to the point of feeling otherworldly.
