“What’s On Your…”

Stolen from Veronica Scott (also known as “my mom.” Hi, Mom! *waves*) who adapted this meme from Marie Claire magazine…

What’s on your…

Mind: I’ve been thinking a lot about the new episode of Sherlock that I just watched, and also how ridiculous Geo-restrictions are for media in this day and age. I had an idea for a time travel short story this morning. Thinking about breaking into graphic novels…

Last credit card statement: This dress (for day job) and a bunch of books about daily life in the Middle Ages which is research for zee next book.

Netflix Queue: I’ve had a copy of King Kong at my house for like the last month. Oops. The Perks of Being a Wallflower is up next in the queue if I ever get around to returning King Kong

Walls of my Favorite Room in my House: Well, I live in a studio apartment so there’s only the one room and the bathroom…I do really like my writing wall over my desk which has a huge calendar where I track my writing days, post-its with inspirational quotes, a Ganesh painting (see below), and a chart of feathered dinosaurs.

Fantasy Itinerary: New Zealand, Ireland and Venice.

Feet: Nothin’. They’re tucked under me in the computer chair, which is not ergonomic I know. Bad Beth.

Nightstand: Again, small apartment, so I don’t have a nightstand. My desk is pretty close to the bed, though. It’s got a water bottle, my Kindle, hand lotion, a pen cup, post-its, tissues, and a dinosaur desk organizer that my sister gave me this Christmas that I LOFF.

31ggHqpMQjLGo-To Menu: Chicken marsala at Cheesecake Factory OR A burger and cheese fries at Islands.

TV in the AM: No time! I wake up at 6 and I’m out the door.

Refrigerator Door: Magnets: A UC Berkeley bear, Han Solo, Legolas, Gizmo from Gremlins, and a hot purple & blue velociraptor that says “Hollywood”. Held up by said magnets: Old picture of my family, Doctor Who stamps Mom gave me from Christmas, doctor and dentist business cards, old drawing of my nephew’s, Post card from DC. Lastly, I have a magnet set my sister made me of my Beauty’s Beast paperdolls and a shopping list pad.

Kitchen Counter: A dish drainer and a ceramic hot pink elephant that I use to hold my sponge and brush when I wash dishes.

TV in the PM: EVERYTHING is on hiatus at the moment (grrrr, hiatus), but this season I’m keeping up with Nashville, The Blacklist, Once Upon a Time, and Almost Human. I’ve also been watching Emma Approved online from the people who did The Lizzie Bennet Diaries (which I quite enjoyed) but then Emma went on hiatus too! Argh. :/

iPOD: Y’all should have a very good idea of what is on my iPod by now. These were some recent acquisitions: “Brave” by Sara Bareilles, the How To Train Your Dragon soundtrack, “Lego House” by Ed Sheeran, The Desolation of Smaug soundtrack, the Frozen soundtrack, and “Gale Song” by The Lumineers.

Perennial To Do List: Dusting, clean the shower, laundry, feed the cats (the cats seem to think that any time I stand up I should be feeding them), write write write.

What about you guys? What’s on your mind? to do list? nightstand? feet? etc, etc? ;P
