Tuesday's Top Five!!!

**Idea stolen from Alex...though I better watch out, now that she isa big author going to book signings and the like....she may sue.

1- Naps - lately my bubs and I have become quite obsessed with napping, in fact...we have been doing it almost every day...yes, you are all thinking shouldn't you two be packing...well yes, but napping is where it is at for me right now. I think part of the reason I love napping is the nap dreams you have, usually so much more vibrant and odd than normal sleep dreams.

Like the other day I actually had a dream that I was Batgirl and my bubs was Nightwing (for those of you who are not geeks, Nightwing is the original Robin all grown up...he's sort of a womanizing hottie, but I have an absurd crush on him anyway....and yes, I know he's not real.)

I have to say the Batgirl/Nightwing dream now replaces the dream I had when I was very little that I got to host the Muppet Show with Harrison Ford....which had remained my #1 best dream ever until this week.

2- Nancy Drew....yes, the obsession continues, I have been re-reading the Nancy Drew books in between the "real" books I read, and though they are formulaic and vanilla...there is something overwhelmingly comforting about reading them again, plus I love that every time Nancy is in a stressful situation she eats a wonderful snack or a big old meal....Heym Nancy....we have that in common, stressful situation...head to the cookies.

3- Anything French....yes, I am learning the Language (or trying to a little bit at this point), but it is more than that...and it is creeping into all aspects of my life...Marie Antoinette obsession...yup, got that, love the movie, reading the books, and what is in my cd palyer at this exact moment???

Well, that would be the soundtrack to Les Miserables...which I have been listening to when I work, though I swear when I get to "On My Own" on disc 2...I have to stop working every the tears just roll down my face as I sing, and I think to myself "I am so much like Eponine"

4- My New House....yeah, you knew this was coming...there is not much else to say about our new little place...what I have become very excited about is being able to really explore and take advantage of the little uptown portion of the city, with it's bookstores and antique shops..I fear I may become one of those people who very rarely leave there own neighborhood.

5- Bad Celebrity Gossip....seriously bad gossip gives me so much joy, it's trashy and mindless yes...but I love it. Now, I don't watch much tv, rarely listen to new music, and don't get out to the movies that my main info about these trash tarts comes from Access Hollywood and Perez Hilton, but it just brings me joy, not enough joy to like buy a copy of Us Weekly, Ok, or some other rag....but if the gossip is free...then I am all about it!

**well that wraps up the top 5 today....I am off to do some work...I am working on a 4 piece commission right now, and 2 pieces are already 100% done and approved, I am 65% done the 3rd piece and will begin on the 4th later tonight or tomorrow....sigh.

also........though I know she does not read le blog I just want to give a big shout out to my Mommy, as it is her birthday today!!

Joyeux Anniversaire maman!!!

Naps are fan-fucking-tastic. That's all.

Actually, no, one more thing: I think my equivalent to your Nancy Drew reading is the old Ian Fleming James Bond novels. They're cheesy comfort food for me, and just like Nancy D., JB in the novels is constantly eating. Like seriously, the dude should be fat from all the damn bacon he eats.

I too am addicted to trashy internet gossip, although I am an ONTD addict, myself. I am loving this morning as blohan is yet arrested gain for coke and alcohol. How can someone be handed such a great life and f it up so many times?

Ohhhh, I have to agree with naps and all things French. I'm especially into French cooking right now. Love it! And naps... well, I don't dream as much when I nap which is why I love them. Nap sleep is the BEST!

Wonderful works!
I think that dreams often mean something. If you had a dream that you were batgirl, maybe that's kinda telling you that your an inspiration to many others.
I love Les Mis. as well. Great taste in music girl!

Fabulous top 5. I am especially in agreement about the naps (your dream sounds TGTBT) and the bad celeb gossip. Awesome.
