Thusday Blog Challenge

Complete these statements:

1. My current favorite song: Well, as of THIS particular minute, I'm really into Star Witness by Neko Case. I love her voice...kinda folsky, kinda rocker chic, kinda old timey country-ish, if all that makes sense. The sound of the song reminds me of some of the stuff my mom used to listen to when I was growing up.

2. The last book I read: As far as a sit down and read novel, it was Wicked by Gregory Maguire a couple months ago. Soooo good. I MUST see the musical now. Still haven't read the sequel though. The last art/inspiration book I read was Caludine Hellmuth's Collage Discovery Workshop (the first one, not the one with the poppets). So AWESOME! She actually TEACHES you how to do all the techniques, as well as provides alot of eye candy. I checked it out from the library, but I am definitely going to buy it. I want the new one, too. She's like, my new favorite.

3. What I'm wearing right now: A green (like a pretty limey color green) Signature Cabinetry polo shirt, dark khaki capris, and brown leather sandals. Man, I love that I can wear sandals to work. I used to wear heels, but that ended real quick after a few hours of standing on the marble tile floor in our showroom one day. Flippin' OUCH! I think my feet hurt for two days after that.

4. The last CD I bought: Give Up by The Postal Service. Chad and I both LOVE the song Such Great Heights (not the slow one on the M&M's commercial, the faster original), so I got him the CD. I still haven't gotten to listen to it yet.

5. The last gift I bought for someone: The CD I just listed and a candle for Chad's Easter Basket. Let me tell you, Old Virginia Candle Company's Farm Grown Soy Candles have got to be the best candles ever made. They melt down COMPLETELY, no wax stuck to the side of the jar, and they are strong, and smell so good! You can smell ONE all through your house. My MIL gave us one, and I swear, I will never buy another brand again.

Yep, so there's my long-winded answers as usual! Oh, and I got a call from our friends (the parents of the girl whose wedding I shot) Tuesday night....they LOVED the photos, and said the DVD made them cry. That really made me feel SO GOOD! I know I did my job. Plus, they're taking Chad and me out to Buca di Beppo next week for dinner. YUM! Still don't want to be a wedding photographer...

Ok...not understanding the whole Wicked deal. I too just finished that book. Did I miss something? I must be the only person who really didn't enjoy the book.

Please explain what I missed ;)
