I'm not planning to work tomorrow.
I'm getting on a plane headed homeward in 27 hours (but whose counting.)
One suitcase is packed.
Ain't no reason for this song, other than the fact that I love it.

Have you seen it yet? I laughed so hard at this scene I cried. And I'm still singing along 12 hours later.
If you aren't watching yet, make it a priority next week, you'll be glad you did.
Did you know it is National Singles Week? Here's what I learned about single life in the US:
- 92 million Americans over 18 are not married (42% of the US adult population)
- For every 100 unmarried women in American there are 86 unmarried men
- 60% of unmarried Americans have never been married
Suddenly I don't feel quite so alone in my singleness.

I'm in love.
I'm in love with the Genius button on my iPod. It made the most amazing playlist for me today.
On Monday I hit shuffle and then a few songs in got stuck on "Gravity" by Sara Bareilles. I must have listened to the song 5 times.
Today during my commute I pulled the iPod back out and "Gravity" was still playing, but this time I hit the genius button, and look at the amazing messages I found in the music I listened to on the way to work.
Or if I like what I've begun
But something told me to run
And honey you know me it's all or none
Oh, how I try to be just okay
The stars smiled down on me,
She never stays the same for long
Assuming that she'll get it wrong
Perfect only in her imperfection
An entire commute full of beautiful music with lovely lyrics that kept me going all day long. Pin It

Where the night is totally clear
And your heart is fierce
So now you finally know
That you control where you go
You can steer

In our neighborhood in Delhi, most houses/apartment buildings have a guard at the gate. I suspect it has more to do with status than actual protection - but at least there are enough of them they can keep each other company on our very quiet street. The lucky guards have a small shack to keep them dry in the rain and to give them a place to keep a few of their things.

The one thing I love the most about being back in Delhi is getting a facial from Tania. She is the amazing. I met her at an expat women's meeting last year and my skin has never been the same. Not only does she give amazing facials, she has developed her own line of skin care. All organic and ayurvedic - I stock up regularly and haven't found anything I like better anywhere. I know they work magic because several times in the last year I've been having a conversation with someone and they've stopped in the middle to tell me how nice my skin looks and considering I wear far less make-up now than I did in my teens and twenties that is saying something.
