Current Status: August

Oops, I kind of forgot to do a "Current Status" post for July! So instead, I'm posting August's right at the beginning of the month. I mentioned last month that I was starting to feel the need to change up the questions, so I did (just a bit)!

Current Book: AGH, so many! I've nearly finished a "What I've been reading" post, but I still have a few loose ends to tie up. I still haven't gotten the chance to read Neil Gaiman's new one, "The Ocean at the End of the Lane", but that's next on my list if I get some time!

Current Music: The All Day album by Girl Talk (You can download it for free via that link!). I should probably make out with the person who suggested this to me, as it is brilliant. 

Current drink: Ermahgerd, you guys, Bolthouse now makes salted caramel latte drinks, and they are amazeballs. 

Current food: I was still pretty pissed at Sabra for discontinuing my beloved Greek Olive Hummus, but I tried their Basil Pesto flavor last night, and we're totally buds again. It's SO GOOD. 

Current need: Some sleep. I'm back in one of those phases where I'm getting 3-4 hours a night. Hooray for coffee!

Current Wish List: I'm pretty content at the moment. It's nice.

Current triumph: I have been seriously kicking ass at making my way through my giant "to alter" pile of clothes! So many posts about all of that coming soon! SO MANY.

Current bane of my existence: Stupid cracked tooth. Why can't you just heal yourself, tooth? Bones mend, why not teeth? Evolve already.

Current excitement: I will be back in Florida SO SOON. 

Other Randomness: I stopped in Bath and Body Works yesterday afternoon since I had a coupon for a free travel sized product (Warm Vanilla Sugar shower gel - score!) and wanted to check out all of the new pumpkin-y things. Yes, it's way too early for fall scents, but who cares. I wanted some mini candles (I am way too frickin' cheap to spend $22 on the 3-wick candles, but I can justify the minis.) but so far the store only had the big ones of the new scents in stock. Instead, I fell in love with the Pumpkin Caramel Latte hand sanitizer:
Pumpkin Caramel Latte PocketBac Sanitizing Hand Gel - Anti-Bacterial - Bath & Body Works
           Hello, lover.

I grabbed one of these and made my way to the register, where the checkout girl informed me that they were 5 for $5 (vs $1.75 for one). I also had a 20% off coupon, which made them 5 for $4, so the choice was obvious.  ALL of your hand sanitizers are belong to me! In addition to the one above, I got I Love Pumpkin, Pumpkin Cupcake, Sweet Cinnamon Pumpkin, and Apple Mango (Gotta change things up a little. And I ran out of pumpkin scents.) The truly spectacular thing is that I hardly ever even use these things. I keep one in my car, but that's about it. So I'm pretty much set to smell like fall for a solid 3 years, I'd say. $4 well spent.

What are you guys digging lately?
