Reading: “Gone Girl.” I’m one of the last people in America to read this book, right? I saw the movie first.
Video: A binge-watch of the first season of “Blacklist” (James Spader!)
Audio: Autumn is always a good time for some Lloyd Cole.
Drink: Some delicious sangria at a tapas restaurant the other night, with my friend M.
Eats & Treats: Various kinds of apples from the farmers market
Garb: A new black cardigan-jacket purchased during Comptoir des Cotonniers’ summer sale
Beauty Products: Some early-release Christmas products (!) from LUSH (reviews to follow!)
Pleasure: Giving my first professional presentation on perfume advertising and art history (more to come, I hope!)
Worry: Ebola. No, just kidding. Maybe.
Stray thought: Since I have more even time than usual to appreciate them lately, I feel very fortunate to have the friends that I have, both near and far.

You’re not one of the last! I just got Gone Girl and am trying to get through the first chapter. What do you think about it so far?
Well, I’m a book snob… so when I saw *everyone* reading it on the bus and the subway last year, I assumed it was total cr@p. I’m actually enjoying it — much better writing than I would have expected! ;)
Reading: Nothing currently – a huge Amazon book order just shipped today, including Mandy’s new book. YAY, new reading material!
Video: I’m having this addiction to 80s and 90s training videos from random old retail chains and fast food restaurants.
Audio: New Flying Lotus, yes. I just saw him in concert last night! AMAZING.
Drink: Pumpkin Spice Latte. I am not ashamed.
Eats & Treats: Ring Pops and fried chicken.
Garb: Skinny jeans! So many skinny jeans! And booties.
Beauty Products: Too many to list, but I did finally order that new Rouge Bunny Rouge palette from Twisted Lily.
Pleasure: I’ve been enjoying my staycation this week, mostly in the company of one of my best guy friends.
Worry: My travels next month.
Stray thought: Isn’t Halloween soon?
Yay for boots and Mandy Aftel’s new book!! Enjoy the rest of your staycation!
Always very interesting to see such a list — been turned on to so many good things that way.
BTW, just ordered Nars Audacious in Audrey upon the recommendation of a friend, to be used with Chestnut MAC lip pencil, in my continuing effort to find a dark lipstick that stays on more than five minutes.
