Weekend Dispatch

Friday, February 10, 2017
This to-do list is taken directly from my own personal calendar (yes, I put my workouts and exercise classes on my calendar!). It includes what I plan to do, eat, read, and watch this weekend.

When I was in college, I read Elie Wiesel's Night as part of a Jewish American literature class. I couldn't put the book down. I stayed up all night to read it. It is a haunting account of Wiesel's personal experience at a concentration camp in Poland. It was eye-opening, horrifying, and addicting. I have never stopped thinking about that book and Wiesel's incredible storytelling. My oldest daughter just finished reading the book for her 9th grade language arts class, and after discussing the book with her, I decided I had to read it again this weekend.

I stream Spotify practically all day. I love listening to old favorites and discovering new ones. I recently discovered an all-female group from Los Angeles, MUNA. I've heard a few songs that I love, but I plan to listen to the latest release, About U, in it's entirety this weekend.

I am in a constant knock-down-drag-out fight with my pantry. Every time I clean it, it's a mess a few days later. Never fails. I need less food, and more time. But until that happens, I'll have to try for a new organization system. I'm thinking of doing something like this or maybe this.

My friend Nancy has raved about the avocado toast at Tara Lu's. On Sunday after yoga, I plan to stop to finally try it. I've had wheatgrass shots and smoothies from Tara Lu's but never the avocado toast. I can't wait to try this one:

I'm probably the last one to watch American Crime Story: The People vs O.J. Simpson, amiright? After seeing Sarah Paulson win a Golden Globe for her portrayal of prosecutor Marcia Clark, I added this to my Netflix list. I hope I enjoy the miniseries despite the fact that I know the outcome of the case.

SNL. Can we talk about Saturday Night Live for a minute? The Trump administration has given late night TV a tremendous amount of fodder, and the writers of SNL are running with it. I can't wait to see what goes down this weekend when Alec Baldwin hosts. And in case you missed Melissa McCarthy's impersonation of Sean Spicer last weekend, here you go.

So, tell me. What do you have planned this weekend?
