on my mind.


  Okay, I go through seasons of being, um...slightly...shall we say, occupied with certain things. Not obsessed, per se. Well, maybe just slightly obsessed. Lately, the things that have been the regulars inside my mind include:

  • The color yellow. I love the lightness of it, how cheerful it is, how striking. When I shop--which isn't much at all recently, because I have been trying to keep some loonies and toonies in the bank--I am inevitably drawn to anything that is yellow.  So much so, in fact, that I usually have to touch it. Hmm. Now you probably think I am a little weird.
  • The music from a band called The Casting Out (darby, my sister-in-law, used to be in this band and plays and sings in their music that I have on my ipod; my brother Josh also is involved with them). Anyway, I have been listening to the five songs that I have of theirs a ton lately. 
  • Pirouettes.  These are turns. For some reason, I think about them a lot right now.  I think about doing them, and I often have to refrain from just busting one out wherever I am.  But sometimes I don't even refrain; I just turn cause if not, I'll keep thinking about it. 
  • The very best way to sound off-key when I sing three blind mice during the show.  Really, I often sing it under my breath, trying to sound tone-deaf, trying to sound believable, trying to sound funny.  Um, really really trying.  It's a little crazy.  
  • Brick-breaker. It's a game that is on my blackberry--actually, the only game that is on my blackberry.  I play it on the subway.  My subway trip to the theater is 8 minutes, meaning that I play about 16 minutes of brick-breaker a day.  It's a fun, frustrating game and just today I got a new high score...So, I'm pretty much awesome.  Until tomorrow when I die in like the 1st round. 
   Well, that's the list for right now.  Believe me, this list is not exhaustive; but these are the repeats. Oh, and I will leave you with this image:

         Me. Wearing a child's robot sweatshirt from Walmart (sold out guys, sorry).  Sweet, I know.

I LOVE the color yellow, Jess, and I always look at (and touch) yellow clothes, bags, etc.! BTW, I do the same thing with the color orange; in fact, I just bought a pair of orange shoes from Clarks, their "Soul of Africa" line. They are really cute and comfy, were under $50.00, and a portion of the proceeds goes to an AIDS orphanage in South Africa (Durban, if I remember correctly).

Didn't you love the color yellow during Saigon? So i think you always love the color yellow. I remember one day i had a yellow shirt on and you said, "Kristin, why would you wear this in front of me? You know I want it now." :)

Jessica Latshaw said...

kathie--that sounds like a great purchase all around!

Kristen--okay, so I guess the color yellow is just on my mind all the time;-) lol

You know robots scare me. But if all robots could be as wonderful as you I dare say, I'd overcome my fear! This sweatshirt rocks!!!!!
