Randomosity on Fridays: Procrastination Station

What is going on? How is it already mid-January?!

In any case, I'm both sad and happy to report that I am doing only half-way decent with my 2011 resolutions. The excuse, of course, is my lingering cold. That is killing my resolution to cultivate health, but we'll see how it goes after I'm back to 100%.

As for some other resolutions, I'm doing okay! For example, I was here twice this week! I even got Alz to pop in for a review! I'd be doing better if I weren't procrastinating so much, but what else is new? That brings us to the topic of this week's Friday 5.

1. I now have a Tumblr. I've been wanting one for a while, but I resisted and resisted. Then the New Year happened and I thought, oh why not? So if you're so inclined, please visit me at Scribbles from Wonderland. Mostly, I post up photos and quotes that inspire me. Eventually, I'll post up random bits of doodling and art that I sometimes do.

2. I'm on goodreads now too. It's Luce's fault. She wanted some friends, so she conned Alz and me into it. If you're around thereabouts, I'd love to be friends with you too! I'm listed as Krispy on goodreads.

3. I'm reading 2 books at once - Matched by Ally Condie and Across the Universe by Beth Revis. This is not normally my style, but I've been wanting to read Matched, so I started it. Across the Universe I had to have after I read the 111pg excerpt on release day. Well, Alz bought the book for me, and now I have it. So I'm reading it. The cover is really as gorgeous as it looks.

4. I also picked up 3 more book from the library, even though I have more than enough books on my plate. Really excited to read Light Boxes by Shane Jones, which sounds like it is right up my alley. Mixed format storyt-telling, a literary fable, a personified month (February) tormenting a small town? Yeah, that's my cup of tea. I'd like to add is a "big people" book. See, making good on my resolution!

5. I HAVE THE URBAN DECAY NAKED PALETTE!!!

"What's the big deal?" I hear you asking. "It's just another eyeshadow palette." TRUE, but it is a palette of lovely neutrals in different textures that comes with a mini bottle of primer, and a two sided eyeliner pencil - all in a pretty brown box.

You just need to see it. I wasn't impressed when I first saw it in a catalogue, but after I saw my friend's in person and tried it out - it was Love.

Also, I've been wanting it since September. Why didn't I get it until now? Because it was SOLD OUT. As in completely, "I'm sorry NO ONE HAS IT" SOLD OUT since then until NOW. Last week, when I got the notification that it was back in stock, I placed my order. Now, it is miiiineeee! (Good thing too. Sephora website is out of stock again.)


And that's it for me. What procrastinatory activities have you been up to? Any plans for the weekend?


P.S. My other procrastination activity has been the game Plants vs. Zombies. Yes, it is as addictive as everyone says it is.

Procrastination activity. Eating. Not good for my waistline.

Following you on Tumblr and Goodreads (I just got my Goodreads this week too!). Tumblr actually has quite a few users dedicated to writing and books (...and cute baby animals... and beautiful home decor... and delicious food...)

And I am wasting most of my time on my brand new Twitter account!

I'll friend you on Goodreads, and I'll have to check out your Tumblr. I've been avoiding even finding out about that since it seems like it's probably a time-suck, and I've decided that I can only procrastinate via blogging, t.v., and book reading. ;)

I know how satisfied you must feel finding that palette! I'd been searching for a pair of booties in black (love the brown pair I already have) and finally found them right before Xmas. On sale, of course!

Have a great weekend!

Icy Roses said...

OMG the Naked Palette has been sold out FOREVER! I'm so jealous that you got it.

Also, I've heard good things about Matched so let us know how it is.

I'm freaking in LOVE with Urban Decay!!!!

Krispy said...

Angela- Thanks for stopping by, and OMG, that's one of my procrastination activities too! I love snacking. :P

Ariana- Followed you back! Tumblr is my time suck. I think this might've been a bad idea.

Tere- Yay more friends and HIGH FIVE for getting your booties on sale (know how that feels)! Tumblr is definitely a time suck. I need to get a handle on it.

Christine- Friends! :) Just finished Matched (after AtU). You were right on both counts. Really enjoyed them.

Krispy said...

Xixi- Jump on it as soon as it's in stock (I signed up to get a notification)! I love this palette (been using it)! It is AMAZING.

As for Matched, I just finished it last night and I REALLY liked it. I might review it, but in case I don't, you're totally welcome to email me for my thoughts. :)

Lydia- Hehe, thank you for visiting it! I won't tell anyone you're procrastinating if you don't tell anyone I am.

Melissa- Yay another Urban Decay fan! I think the Naked Palette is by far my FAVORITE thing I've bought from them. Seriously.
