My new routine in life goes a bit like this: wake up at 5:30 when hubs leaves for the hospital. Curse inwardly, go back to sleep. Wake up again at 7:40, the time I used to wake up for work. Repeat inward cursing. Force myself to go back to sleep until at least 8:30. Wake up, watch an episode of Buffy, and head out to the library. Over the past week, I've become well acquainted with the cast of characters frequenting my local library. There is the morning drop-off from a local nursing home, the woman who patrols the computers and warns people about using too much time (but is most definitely not an employee) and my favorite, the loud tutoring sessions where children attempt to explain how their brains work ("Mine is like a file cabinet. I knew the formula for the test, but now my brain locked it away and I can't find the key. You get it, Miss A?" "No. Do your math problem.") Who said unemployment was boring? Because seriously, this is entertaining stuff.

If I had to choose but one top to wear indefinitely on a desert isle, it would be a simple choice: a plain white Hanes v-neck. Cheap, sure, but these buddies are closet workhorses 'round here. I wear one nearly every Friday as I'm cooking/cleaning/running errands, but have been known to wear one to work, paired with something a bit sleeker and more appropriate. If I was ever invited to the Oscars, I would seriously think about pulling a Sharon Stone... before choosing an amazing Marchessa confection.
If forced to choose, what would your 1 desert-isle item be?
