12 of 12: October

Heyyyyy, it's that time of the month again. So to speak. For all info and background on the 12 of 12 project, see Chad Darnell's blog; it's his baby.

And here we go:

8:45 - Waking up gloriously late. Thanks, Columbus/indigenous peoples!

9:34 - Making the morning admin rounds for the newly launched Austenacious; my assistant sleeps on the job.

10:22 - Stopping by the cathedral on my morning run.

10:25 - My favorite place on the cathedral grounds, the Bishop's Garden.

12:47 - Um, lunch. IT HAS FRUIT IN IT, OKAY? Don't judge me or my baked goods.

1:39 - On the bus to Georgetown.

2:01 - Taking myself to the movie show: Whip It, which I liked very much. It did not, however, help resolve my inner conflict over roller derby (in which I dig the derby culture, but also dig my bone structure as is).

4:04 - In Georgetown, waiting for the bus back up the hill.

4:25 - In line at Giant, where I didn't even bother to track down a basket. Note: hand-carrying frozen peas around will eventually make your hands cold.

5:53 - Working on an original pilot script. Anybody know any agents looking for fresh TV-writer blood?

7:20 - Magic risotto, starring peas and zucchini and a whole lot of parmesan. Time-consuming, but it keeps me fed all week.

9:41 - Skyping with my friend Carly, whom I've known since birth and who is now super-adorable and thinking of becoming an English major. I approve.

That's all, folks! See you all next month.

I saw Whip It on Friday! Yay! It was totally fun. I went and immediately bought the soundtrack, too. And I am in agreement over thinking the whole thing is cool but also I sort of like being in one piece and how can they do that and stay in one piece. Thought Ellen Page was adorable and Drew Barrymore was hysterical.

Mmmmm, is that apple crisp? I made some of that on Sunday. Now that it's cooled down to the 70s here, I'm pretending it's fall and time to bake delicious stuff.

Your running route looks pretty, and your risotto looks delicious!

The Bishop's Garden looks heavenly! :)

Great shots,

I haven't seen Whip It yet but Raquel Welch in her movie "Kansas City Bombers" escorted me into puberty!

I immediately *looked* at the soundtrack, but didn't buy it...but I liked it very much during the movie. Also, do you know who I loved in the movie? Kristen Wiig (Maggie Mayhem). It will be a happy day, I think, when she officially takes her place as the third member of the Fey/Poehler triumvirate.

Two other things, while I've got you:

1) I don't think I have your hat. Boo.
2) I get to see you on Friiiiday! In Rhiiiiinebeck! YAY YAY YAY!

It *is* apple crisp, and I ate the entire thing in less than 24 hours. And I don't regret it at ALL.

Liz said...


Wow, I'm not sure I want to know too much about you and Raquel. Heh.

Hee, the fun time of the month ;-)

And I love your assistant sleeping on the job...

And you have a lovely run route!
