Freaky Friday: It's All About Me Edition

I'm back to work after an eight week sabbatical, I woke this morning to find my car was egged in the night, and the Halloween party I was going to attend on Saturday was cancelled. Stellar morning, yes indeed.

So this installment of Freaky Friday is all about me, me, me. In the face of adversity, I choose narcissism, or something like that...

1. Now that I have nothing to do on Saturday night, I'm going to have a little no-Halloween movies netflix film festival. My choices? Klute (Jane Fonda and Donald Sutherland = perfecto) and A Home at the End of the World (Colin Farrell. Colin Freaking Farrell.) No spooky movies for me. I watched Amityville Horror once and couldn't sleep for three nights because my apartment was 20 miles from the real Amityville. So close! Too close! (Yeah, I'm a wimp.)

2. My friend Alexa, photog extraordinaire, is going to take professional photos of me this weekend. I'll post the results. I've gotten a lot of good tips from friends regarding how-not-to- look-like-a-complete-moron in front of the camera, and Stina Lindenblatt coincidentally posted some tips this week on her blog.

3. I am convinced I can write a decent steampunk novel. OK, more than convinced, I'm obsessed. (I've actually only read one. But I'm a 19th C. history chick and the idea just appeals.)

4. HARRY POTTER is coming. I've already bought my tickets. Is it wrong to think Harry is a hottie now? He's a wee one but so cute. (I almost deleted seems a tad icky, no?)

5. I've got some Borders bucks burning a hole in my pocket. I'm definitely going to buy this, and this. Any other suggestions?

Have a good weekend, everyone! Happy Halloween!


  1. ooh, grown up books! That's spooky enough for me.

    Sorry about your craptastic morning. Hope the weekend brings happier things!


  2. Steampunk has your name written all over it! Good luck with the pics tomorrow. You will look gorgeous. And movie night on Saturday sounds fabulous. I secretly love when we have zero plans. I'm going to be spending Saturday cleaning, having out of town friends over, yawning and then cleaning again.

  3. I think the new Keith Richards autobiography looks really promising, though I haven't read it yet.

    Sorry about your car and the party being cancelled. Those are supposed to be Monday-type events, not Friday ones!!

    Happy Halloween weekend!

  4. HARRY POTTER HARRY POTTER HARRY POTTER!!!! Oh, and also, being egged sucks so bad. It smells and attracts crows.

    In high school, my friend and I TP'd her neighbor's house. He found out and egged her house in the night, then poured water ALL over the driveway. We woke up the next morning to her mom freaking out about all the crows in the front yard, and the water froze and turned the egg-y driveway into a frozen egg-y driveway.


  5. I am so curious about Steampunk. Never read it, kind of afraid of it, but I will let you convert me! Hope all went well with the egged car. Happened to me several years ago. Little freaking punks.

    Happy Halloween!

  6. I am feeling so guilty for the part I had in ruining your weekend!!! ;) least you know I didn't egg your car. :)

  7. OMG, Jenny, you didn't ruin it! And we'll get you in that Merlotte's costume yet! It won't go to waste!
