Friday 5: Stuff for My B-day

My birthday is coming up in a little over a week, so once again I’ve been getting questions about what I’d like. Well, my want list is here, but here are five things that you might want, too.

1. AquaNotes Waterproof writing pad. Yes. Finally it’s possible to take notes in the shower! (And trust me, that’s where I do my best thinking.)

2. The “Keep Calm and Carry On” mugs from the Acorn catalog. Aren’t they pretty? I think a nice cup of tea would help me carry on.

3. This really cool magnifying glass. (It’s portable!)

4. Survival Straps Bracelet (just in case.)

5. The Mikey for ipod. (Yes, a microphone by Blue that you can plug into your ipod. Shiny!)

Five Healthy Things

Okay. So, once again it’s technically Saturday at this point, but at least that means I’m covered for NaBloPoMo for Saturday. (I will be away from my computer for a day or so, so it’s best to get this in when I can.) In light of my reality check the other day I thought that this week’s version of “Five Things” would focus on health. Specifically…

Five Healthy Things I’ve Done In the Last Day:

1. I went to bed early. – All I can imagine is that my body needs to get used to going to bed early. I had trouble falling asleep. Ah well. Could that be why I woke up to the theme from “Earth Girls are Easy” playing in my head?
2. Drank water and juice. – I drank a bottle and a half of water and a yummy juice smoothie.
3. Took a walk. – I even managed to find a route that was the same length as my break.
4. I relaxed. – Okay, I relaxed by going to the cinema with friends. That counts, yes?
5. Took my vitamins. – I’m told that Folic Acid is important.

And speaking of health…I’m off to bed now.
