5 Things

I've had kind of a yucky day, so I'm going to write one of those chain-letter type posts that I see circulating so often, for some mindless fun. I copied the formating of Tres Poshe Preppy's post for the day:

5 Things I Can't Live Without Under $10:
1. Iced nonfat lattes
2. Fried chicken
3. Vosages Barcelona Bar
4. Google Reader
5. Domino Magazine

5 Favorite Movies:
1. Marie Antoinette
2. Thomas Crown Affair

3. To Catch a Thief
4. Breakfast at Tiffany
5. Old School

5 Favorite Girl Baby Names That I Love But Won't Use (hmmm...never say never):
1. Imagen
2. Estella
3. Bridgette
4. Amelie
5. Chloe

5 Favorite Boy Baby Names That I Love But Won't Use:
I refuse to think about boy's names because there is no way that I will give birth to a boy. In the event tragedy strikes, I'm sure I'll be incandescently happy with John Doe, but he probably won't be named for several weeks.

3. Sweet Home Alabama (Lynyrd Skynyrd)

4. 6 Underground (Sneaker Pimps)
5. Always a Woman (Billy Joel)

5 Things That Stay In My Handbag At All Times:
I like to remind my husband that "a true lady travels unencumbered" and travel sans handbag, but in the event I do:
1. Letterpress calling cards and moo chic and charming cards
2. Liberty handkerchief
3. Pill box containing migraine meds and zantac
4. USB key
5. Mini moleskin accordion file to keep receipts organized

5 Obsessions I Have Right Now:
1. Wordpress Magazine themes
2. My favorite bakery's sticky buns and homemade pop tarts
3. Classic champaign cocktails
4. Learning how to string and hand knot pearl necklaces
5. Frans Masereel

5 Places I'd Love to Go:
1. St. Petersburgh
2. Hong Kong
3. Istanbul
4. Dakar
5. Rio

I lived in HK and spent a week in Saint Petersburg.
Not sure I'll make it to the other places, but I wouldn't mind either.

OMG I'm 100% obsessed with magazine themes right now, too!! I just redesigned, though, so I shouldn't... But I'm almost to the point where I want to build an entire new site JUST so I can use one!! It's out of control!
