I should be editing DUTCH right now, but my brain needs a break, some mindless fun to take the edge off and ease the pain. So of course, I turned to my Tumblr feed…heh-heh-heh…wicked smirk. Anyone who has seen my Tumblr feed – actually anyone who has their own Tumblr feed – understands my little inside joke. Much to my surprise, I found this “Six Things” post and thought it would be the perfect way to break up my writing day, so here goes
My Six Things
One song – right now, Adele’s HELLO, because I love her and holy smokes, I love that song. It hits me right in the feels every time, while inspiring an intense need to sing at the top of my lungs. It’s Adele at her moodiest, pitch-perfect best. God, I can’t wait to hear the rest of the album.
Two movies – Thelma & Louise because they’re so badass and because it makes me cry every time I watch it. And because of those scenes with Brad – “Well I may be an outlaw, darlin’, but you’re the one stealing my heart.” – and Star Wars because I’m a nerd like that and because of Han.
Three shows – Friday Night Lights – if you must ask why, then I am sorry for you; Breaking Bad – those seasons with Gus and Walter, god, the brilliance; Sex and the City – because of Carrie and Miranda and Samantha and Charlotte, there’s really nothing else to say.
Four people – David Gandy, duh; Lisa Bonet, because she is Lisa and she made me love my brown skin; Judy Blume, because of Margaret and Blubber and Peter and Sally J, because of periods and wet dreams and brothers named Fudge; Han Solo, not Harrison Ford, but Han Solo.
Five foods – Kitfo, the Ethiopian version of steak tartare; my mom’s eggplant curry; the warm Lentil salad at Lucky Strike; Haagen Dazs coffee ice cream; Cafe Bustelo, because in my world, coffee is one of the major food groups.
Six books – One Hundred Years of Solitude; The Namesake; Daughter of Smoke and Bone trilogy; Got Style?; All American Boys; Nights with Him, because I have to include some sexy and seriously, Jack is fucking hot.
What are your six? Hit me with ’em.
