10 Things: Stuff I’ve Been Doing Recently

1. Eating this: Oatmeal with raisins, brown sugar and cinnamon. I’ve been on quite a kick with it recently. Breakfast, lunch, dinner. So easy and just delicious.

2. Reading this: I’m reading a few of Shakespeare’s plays this month.

3. Browsing this site: Some of the stuff is just so cute, or useful, or yummy. I wish I was as talented as some of the artists and crafters.

4. Writing this:

This. As in the stuff you read here at my notebook. I don’t really have any other projects going on right now, but one of these days I’ll start my book. Maybe.

5. Drinking this: I think I may be addicted to this stuff.

6. Using this: Excuse Moi! nail polish. It’s sparkly and pink and Miss Piggy. Thanks, Santa!

7. Watching this: It’s one of the few tv shows we’ve been watching. I like the mix CSI- fairy tale mix. And the werewolf sidekick is perfect.

8. Buying this: Amber’s having a friend over tonight, so we’ve got a kid-friendly dinner planned: mac and cheese, cheeseburgers and maybe corn.

9. Listening to this: I love this series! It’s a shame I’ll have a wait after this one.

10. Using this new word:

Uh, uh. I don’t think I’m using any new words lately. Kathy, over at BermudaOnion’s Weblog, did feature a couple on Wednesday that I really liked. Maybe I should try to work them into conversations.

fustigate – “Hernandez missed most of the preseason practices because of an ankle sprain, and he fustigated himself for committing seven turnovers.” — Jorge Ortiz, San Francisco Chronicle, November 2004

It can mean to beat with or as if with a short heavy club, but in this case, it means to criticize severely.

bombinate– “For one reason or another, this veteran conductor has never had a publicity machine bombinating away on his behalf.” — The Boston Globe, December 2, 2000

Bombinate means to buzz or drone.
