TGIF: Late morning coffee and a fun blog tag.

(above image via: here.)

Happy Friday, darlings! Oh, what a week it has been. I was so busy with work and end-of-term school papers and tests. I have a final on Tuesday and then a two-week long break before my summer online courses begin. Today is my one day off this entire week---no school or work! What shall I do? Well I slept in 'til 10:30 and am currently enjoying a cup of coffee. I think I'll get around, grab some lunch, visit my grandma, and perhaps do a little bit of shopping. ;) And then I'll get to see my wonderful bf tonight.

Then tomorrow it's back to work. But I reeeeally like my I don't mind. :)

Oh, and I was tagged by the lovely Aury to do this short, sweet survey. So here it goes...

List 3 things that you would want on a deserted island if there was food and water.
List 5 of your favorite novels of all time.
Tag 3 other bloggers.

3 things I'd want on a deserted island if there was food and water:
1. My bf. Not only would he be good company and keep me laughing, but he's good at all things manly. So I'm pretty sure that he'd know how to build a shelter, make a fire, and do other survivor-ly things.
2. Sunscreen. And lots of it. ;)
3. A good book. (One that I don't mind reading over and over again.)

5 of my favorite novels of all time:
1. Abundance
2. Pilate's Wife
3. The Royal Physician's Visit
4. Water for Elephants
5. Harem
(that was really hard!! I have so many favorite books.)

3 other bloggers who should do this survey.
1. Jesse @ Just Flew the Coop
2. Luinae @ More Magic Always
3. Elaine @ Glow in the Dark Soul

DIY Cat Barrier for Under $100 (See-Through, Climb-Proof, and Too-Tall-To-Jump)

ICYMI: I gave up Cotton after deciding that after trying so many things, my two adopted cats Dahlia and Cotton were just never going to get along. Long story short: I missed her. And Cotton's back. And Dahlia's not going anywhere. My heart is big enough to keep trying. And my apartment is big enough that if I need to keep them separated long term (or permanently), it can be done. I'm going to write-up a separate post about some of the solutions I've tried, how they worked, who they worked on, and what I'll be trying next. But in this post, I wanted to share the main 'piece de resistance' of having both cats in my apartment: an un-climbable, un-jumpable, see-through barrier to separate Cotton and Dahlia .

Penny's Apartment | Big Bang Theory

Aniela, a lovely reader from Germany, sent me an email requesting advice on recreating the style of Penny's apartment on Big Bang Theory. 

Blair's Room | Gossip Girl Decor

Manhattan's debutante Blair Waldorf happens to be my favorite Gossip Girl character.  Her behavior and feelings vary from snobbish to sensitive, but she always (except for a few rare occasions) looks and acts totally pulled together.  Her luxurious bedroom is fit for a queen---and is as pulled together as her preppy fashion ensembles.
