We have become alien

Things that are making me happy this week:

1. NPR. I honestly don't even know how this one happened, but suddenly I'm obsessed with listening to public radio. I have a feeling it may be a combination of wanting to be a little more informed and the fact that my commute is a bit longer now that I'm crashing at Amazon's house. Last Thursday, I listened to an interview with John Waters (perhaps the creepiest person I've ever heard of) on my drive home. Why? Because it was on! Why not?!

2. Podcasts. I know, I know, I'm so late to the game on this one, but bear with me. Since moving in with Amazon, I've been living without cable and have had to find other ways to entertain myself (which is so not the point of this; I'm a big girl). One of my favorite blogs puts out a weekly podcast called the Pop Culture Happy Hour, which, for a pop culture fiend such as myself, is equal parts intelligent, witty, incisive and sarcastic. I'm a big fan.

3. Moving to PDX. I spent this past weekend down in Oregon with my mom apartment hunting. It was exhausting and frustrating and overwhelming, but in the end I found a place that I'm really excited about. It's got a ton of light, vaulted ceilings, a wood-burning fireplace, and a solarium, for crying out loud! Very stoked for the move. Less stoked about having to leave Amazon and her bitchin' baking/cooking skills, but somehow I'll soldier through.
