(Idea inspired from an interview with actor Matthew Perry titled One Last Thing)
Last time I took public transportation – Does Uber count? I was in Toronto, sweaty and creaky off the VIA train at Union Station. It was raining. The driver phoned me to tell me where he was which meant I had to go to him…down the street and around the corner. Yep, I was pretty wet when I got in the vehicle.
Last TV obsession – Ongoing – The new season of ‘Girls’ is out. It’s always a thought in the back of the line of all the other thoughts in my head – when will you watch the next episode?! That’s obsession, right? The thing is, I love Lena Dunham’s writing. I love Lenny Letter. Okay, maybe I have slight obsession with Lena Dunham. Nothing too serious. It’s more a fangirl crush. Totally legitimate.
Last home decorating purchase – Well, that’s too easy. I even have photographic proof.
Last meal I made – Hmmm. Currently I am inhaling a fried egg sandwich that I made with Jett. White bread toasted (yowtch), shredded marble cheese, butter, fried egg, turkey bacon. You want a bite?
Last vacation – A mini-vacation! With my sister and the kids. We took the train (VIA) to Chatham (I know, adventurous, eh?) so the kids could experience their first train ride. We stayed at the only hotel in Chatham with a pool. Alas, the place (and pool) was packed with kids because of a dance competition being held at the centre next to the hotel. It was an adventure….
Last book I read (and finished) – Lillian Boxfish Takes a Walk by Kathleen Rooney. I picked this book up at Costco because I LOVED the cover. Look, I do judge a book by its cover, okay? It’s totally natural and acceptable. You do too? In any case, I loved the look of this book, and my instinct was right in terms of story – I love Lillian Boxfish! And I’m a giant fan of Kathleen Rooney. Turns out Boxfish is an ad woman for Macy’s – and a published poet! Oh, how we poets can find each other! She’s based on real-life ad woman/poet Margaret Fishback. I had quite the post-book-reading coma after this one.
What book have you just finished?!
