Time Eaters

There are things in life that I would classify as "time eaters." These are things that grab your attention and 2 hours later you find that you are still doing or looking at the same thing. So here are the things that I know eat up my time, but yet I still go back to them again and again.

1) Reading blogs
2) Facebook, I realize that both #1&2 can be classified as legalized stalking
3) TV series on DVD...once you start, you can't stop. The latest series to eat up my time would be House. I love it.
4) Looking at books in Barnes & Noble
5) Finding new music on iTunes
6) Tetris on my iPhone, I feel like i'm age six again with my old-school Gameboy
7) is a land of bargains through competition...gotta love it

These are just a few, but I am ashamed to say that many hours of my life have been spent doing these things. Typing all these things out has made me realize that I need to spend more time doing the things I enjoy, but don't do enough. I also realized that all these things can be done alone. I guess I should focus my time more on pouring into other people.

Kelley Green

When I was little I used to sing a song called 'Colors.' Here's a little taste..."This is a song about colors,colors. You see them all around. There is red on a stop sign, green on a tree, blue in the sky and sea."  You might ask why I am recounted this childhood tune...well let me answer.

Today a group of us got together to help my buds the Dief's paint their new coffee/ cupcake shop.  Visit their website  It's great, but I digress.  As we were all painting throughout the shop we started talking about what color is everyone.  This is not what color looks good on you, but more what color do you personify.  So after much debate here were our conclusions.  We got excited and decided to step off the typical color-wheel,  and to quote my roommate, "who wants to be a primary color?"

Callie Moore-canary yellow
Matt Neal- flint grey
Dulce Garcia- ruby
Mark Clifford- midnight blue
Elizabeth Dief- burnt sienna
Megan Dief- olive green
Katie Dief- summer peach
Mama Dief- lavender
Papa Dief- brick red
And me...Kelley Green

So am I Kelley Green?  Those of you who know these people...would you agree?  For those of you who don't know these people...I hope you do soon, because they are splendid.  So these are the quirky things we do on Sunday afternoons.  

What color are you?  If you don't know,  I would be happy to make a suggestion (I think I have a gift).

Fall Music

I believe that music has seasons.  Some music just sounds better in fall than it does throughout the rest of the year.  I guess fall and winter kinda go hand in hand for me, but here is what's on the fall playlist.

Iron and Wine
Sigur Ros
Damien Rice
The Swell Season
The Weepies
Sufjan Stevens
Kings of Convenience
Joshua Radin
Bob Dylan
Over the Rhine
Andrew Bird
Simon and Garfunkel
Nickel Creek

Ok let's face it, I listen to these all year round, but they do sound better whenever it's getting colder out.  Maybe it's because of the melancholic undertones of all.  I promise I am not depressed, just my music is.

What's on your fall playlist?
