A devastating blow to a 6 year old.

I didn't want to write about Michael Jackson's death. I didn't see the point with everyone under the sun either blogging, texting or facebooking about it. But I feel I have to share.

My brother got my nieces hooked on MJ's music. He had some DVD of one of his concerts or something and let them watch it one night, I'm assuming in desperation to make them behave. Now, whenever you ask them what they want to watch it's not Dora, Bratz or Barbie's Tinkerbell. No. It's Michael Jackson. They know every song by heart and dance around singing. It's really cute (especially because they have no idea about any of his personal life. They just like his music). 

Even when I was little, I remember annoying my Nanny while she was cleaning out her bathroom. She turned to me and said "Beat It". I think she was trying to be intimidating but the goofy serious face gave her away. I giggled and told that was a Michael Jackson song and kept on annoying her. I spent most of my 27 years of life trying to annoy her and she'd always laugh at me.

I just got a phone call from my oldest niece informing me Michael Jackson was dead. She was watching the news (what 6 year old do you know watches the news? Her favorite channel is the History channel, too) and it said they hadn't found his killer yet. When I informed her he had a heart attack, she told me they just said pain killer on the TV. She said she is going to hate to have to tell my other niece because she wanted to date him (remember when you were little and you wanted to date celebrities? Yes. My nieces want to date Michael Jackson. wow.) and she's going to cry a lot. 

She also told me she is so excited that Nanny gets to meet Michael Jackson, because they're both in heaven now, you know? That's right, Hay, they are both in heaven now.

Such a lazy procrastinator.

So, I decided to dedicate today to unpacking, re-packing and cleaning la room de mine. 

I have unpacked. I tried to re-pack but got deflated when I realized I gave away my black strappy heels (maybe I can go to Goodwill and buy them back? haha). I love that my BFF and I wear the same size shoe. When I texted her to see if she had any she could bring me, she told me she was planning on raiding my closet. Sadly, my closet isn't as fun as it used to be.

In the two weeks I was away I learned:
* I have eaten more in the past 2 weeks than I have in the entire time I've lived in New York.
* I really like laying out by the pool. I normally hate laying out but when you're by a pool, if you get too hot you can just go jump in the pool. I was having fun pretending I was a lady of leisure traveling with my husband while he was on business. 
* I really miss my dark hair, but I will get used to this.
* 2 weeks is long enough to make your own apartment feel weird.
* I really like 70 degree weather and now I understand why when the weather gets in the 90s, its considered a heat wave. 
* The city is bright even at night. 
* Even if I am the laziest person in New York City, I am glad to be back to being active. All that food and not walking around was kind of gross.
* Not working (having a set schedule) is probably not a good idea for me. I'm still not used to the not having to go to sleep b/c I have to wake up for something in the morning and the waking up for nothing to do.
* Who knew thrift store shopping could be so much fun? Thanks, Roomie! (more on that later)
* This city can be quite lonely. Especially when you are coming home to no one.

Now I think I need to get back on track. I need to run a few errands and finish putting away clothes before the boyfriend shows up tomorrow. I will be a little distracted from getting things done once he gets here. Wish me luck!

Streaming movies

You know you do it. (Is it even legal btw?) 

Tell me your favorite site(s). 

Does anyone else ever get weird urges to watch really bad obscure movies you haven't seen in forever? Yea, Having that right now. A little too embarrassed to tell you which movie. But I will tell you it's a sequel.

Thank god we decided against the Jamaica/ Belize cruise. I'm so ready for some 70 degree Canadian love.

All food and no play, makes me a dull girl

This scares me. Along with the bird wallpaper and lime green carpet. Very The Shining. Sweet dreams!

Some girls have all the luck

Won $200 last night. Score. First time ever and no one was around to enjoy it with me. It was on the Wizard of Oz Wicked Witch slot machine. Very appropriate.

I is a tomato.

My exfoliating privileges have been revoked.
I do not have any more layers of skin to take off. I can feel the ridges of the muscles underneath because there is about one more layer before meat.
Friendly reminder, overexfoliating makes you look like a tomato who just had a chemical peel. Be careful with new face washes with the beads in them.
No good.

Little Jenny from GG

Does anyone know if the actress who plays Jenny on Gossip Girl is also in a band? I swear this chick is her (sorry my blackberry sucks at pictures. Buy me an iphone if you have a problem with it). Lead singer of Pretty Reckless?
I'm tempted to call her mom. She's wearing a neglige and black underwears but she rocks!

Dear Chris Martin,

You have way too much energy for having two children in diapers. I see an aneurysm in your future. Please slow down, Mr. Coldplay, you are hopping around like a hobit.
Viva la Vida.

Best Going Away Drink. Ever.

Angel has spread it's wings; The time has come for bigger things.

TODAY IS MY LAST DAY AT WORK. . . . and I don't feel anything. But in a few short hours I will be feeling tequila. I think that evens out, don't you?

So, plans have changed a little. We will not be setting out on our adventure into the great unknown of Europe. Too much is going on in both of our lives right now to plan a proper trip and I do not want to half ass it through Ireland and Italy, that should be a sin.
Instead, we decided to take a cruise!! WITH our significant others! We will be rocking the high seas to St. John and Nova Scotia!

Have I mentioned I get sea-sick?
And I'm going to be stuck on a boat for 5 days. . .
Stay tuned for all the fun that's going to bring on.
PS- anyone know if walkie-talkies work on cruise ships? We really want to play Mission Impossible: Spot the scary persons.

Love and Marriage.

YaY, Mom and Dad!
32 years and going strong.
Doesn't seem like I'll ever get to my first (pity, Party of one) (and that is not a hint either, btw. Cool your jets)

I just looked up what the contemporary wedding anniversary gift is for 32 years and what do you know, it's a car.

Dear Tourist/ SATC fans

This is the famous library where Sex and the City was filmed (btw- it's just for reference and research. You were at the correct one if you wanted to check out books). The scene were she hits him with the bouquet is on the side street along 40th by Bryant Park. The library you were at is just a regular one that you were annoying the locals by just being in.

Meeting the parents

This weekend, the BF and I decided to take a trip to Baltimore. We've been seeing each other a lot lately in anticipation for the longggg time that I would be away for (more on that later). Once I decided I was going, I told him I told him I wanted to meet his people. He's met and hung out with all my people in New York and I was interested to see how he is with his. His included his parents.

I don't know why I was so nervous. I guess it's a big deal when you're meeting someone who is important to the person who is important to you. I've met numerous amounts of parents, but they are usually attached to my gay friends with not much pressure. They all happen to love me and I'm sure not only because I'm amazing but they are secretly hoping I will turn their son straight- and who can blame them? These boobs are monumental.

Anyway. It happened. I met them and again, I have no idea why I was so nervous. They are one of the most adorable couples I've ever met (I love love love when a couple has been married for 20+ years and you can still see they adore each other). I was so excited, I wanted to hug them (which I actually did) and beg them to adopt me. I probably came off quite silly, but no matter.

Next Step: Him meeting my parents. yikes. That's going to be an adventure! Stay tuned.

Exit Interview.

So, they didn't ask me to leave right then and there.
I'm stuck here until tomorrow.
Someone entertain me!

No wonder I won't be accepting an Oscar any time soon.

I'm so bad about getting awards. And apparently, I'm too damn lazy to put them in my sidebars. I remember I got a few awhile ago and I never got around to posting them. Yes, it's terrible and feel free to "take" them back.

But I just realized my Fabulous Sorority Sister Sweet. Spirited. Southern. bestowed all of these awards on me at one time! Thank you, Andie, you rock my socks!

The Let's be Friends Award is given to blogs that are exceedingly charming. These kind of bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in self-aggrandizement. The hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers. Deliver this award to eight bloggers.

Honest Scrap award:

A) First list 10 honest things about yourself - and make it interesting, even if you have to dig deep!
B) Pass the award on to 7 bloggers that you feel embody the spirit of the Honest Scrap.
Here we go:
1. I think tan people look dirty. Not because I am as pale as Edward Cullen or anything, but it makes me feel better that I will have really pretty skin when I'm older.
2. I can honestly go the rest of my life without chocolate. seriously. Take away salt and then we will have a problem.
3. I really want to move home.
4. I've recently started watching Saturday morning cartoons again and I think it makes me a better person.
5. I miss my Nanny more than I will possibly miss anyone else in the entire world and I can't grieve her properly. If I let my brain fully understand she's gone, I would end up catatonic.
6. I have never worked in retail (corporate retail doesn't count).
7. I am in no way possible a foodie. I don't believe in spending a lot of money on food. I eat to live not the other way around.
8. It erks me to no end when people do not know the difference between an actual bi-polar and someone who is just moody.
9. Talking about child abuse or domestic violence freaks me out. I cannot talk about it in a casual conversation.
10. If I could, I'd probably be quite happy living as a hermit and talking to myself.
