Unstructured play.

Totally unrelated to the post. I just thought the world needed to see it.

So, normally there would be a Lunchtime Poll Topic right here.

Not anymore.

Well, sometimes there might be. Maybe.

Same goes for Thursday Morning Confessions and Mailbag Monday.

I'm in a writing rut, and feeling the need to write something specific on a certain day has been making it worse. I mean, c'mon...I wrote an entire paragraph about my laundry detergent preferences a couple of weeks ago.

So, here's the deal. When I have things to confess, I'll do it, even if it's Tuesday. If there's a burning question I want to pose to you all, I'll do it, even if it's a Wednesday. If I get a particularly awesome specimen of hate mail, I post it, regardless of the day of the week.

Everybody on board? Oh, good.

And since I don't want you to feel as though you completely wasted your time visiting today, here's a list of things I'm currently in love with:

1. Annie Chun's Udon Soup

2. This salsa recipe. I've spent years trying to buy or make the perfect salsa--salsa like I get in Mexican restaurants where the wait staff can't even speak English. I was unsuccessful until PW rocked my salsa-connoisseur world yesterday. I made some earlier and it's perfection. I'll never go back to jarred or my even my old home made recipe.

3. Fiestaware's new Lemongrass color. I started collecting Fiestaware 12 years ago. My mother bought me 4 sets in the pastel line as a wedding gift. I don't buy whole sets anymore--I just buy individual pieces that I need (o.k., want). I've got at least one item (mainly plates and bowls) in almost every color now.

4. Powerade Zero's new orange and lime flavors. I don't care for their other zero flavors (grape is tolerable, I suppose). As someone who can no longer drink juice or carbonation, I'm always glad to find yummy new no-cal, uncarbonated drinks.

5. The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I'm dying to read the second one.

6. The fact that everyone is wearing cardigans now. I've always loved cardigans, even back when only old ladies and Mister Rogers wore them. Popular fashion has finally caught up with me.

7. Blogs. Seriously, I would have no friends without them.

8. Harmony's photography. And I'm not just saying that because I think she's awesome (which, I do). There's something about the light in her pictures that makes them special. She's not just some mom who seems to think that simply having a digital SLR and Photoshop makes her a photographer. She's the real deal. I think I need to convince Will that we need to go to Hawaii just for a photo session.

9. Spinning classes. They make me sweat. A lot.

10. No sugar added cherry pie filling. I can't get enough of it lately.
