So, it’s been a super long time since I posted anything on here. I began Bachelor courses this summer and they’ve been taking up a lot more time than I had originally anticipated. Plus, on top of that, I created a new blog site here that is specifically dedicated to reading and book reviews. It’s been slow going so far but I’m really enjoying the new community and sharing my thoughts with other book lovers like me. ANYWAY, I figured that it was time for a randomized blabbering kind of post, so here we go. :Dcheshire-cat-bright1920x108011. I’ve recently heard people saying that certain celebrities are their “spirit animals” and it got me thinking of who mine would be. I narrowed it down to Melissa McCarthy, Jennifer Lawrence & Emma Stone. I mean, are there better chicks than them? Shut your face…the answer is no! They are beautiful, hilarious, and perfectly themselves all of the time.

2. As you all know from my Orange is the New Black post a couple months ago, I am a hardcore Netflixer! Haha! I can binge watch any day, any time and my newest favorite show is House of Cards. It is AWESOME SAUCE! I once thought that I was a fan of Kevin Spacey but I had no idea what being a fan really meant until this show. He is just so phenomenal I can’t even string together a fully coherent sentence to describe his bad-assery. If you’re not watching the show, clearly you’ve found yourself a nice rock to live under.

3. I just celebrated my 31st birthday on August 17th! YAY me! :)

4. I also just celebrated my SECOND wedding anniversary and our 4th year together as a couple on August 23rd! YAY us! :)

5. August rocks…however, the weather doesn’t. This summer has been one of the worst ever with the heat index making days here 105! Bring on winter please!

6. I tried carrot juice this morning, mainly because I have seen people drink it and the orange color just looks so inviting and happy. Yeah, it’s just a pretty drink on the outside NOT on the inside. I wanted to vomit as the disgustingly-sweet-carroty-milky-orange liquid sat on my tongue. It took everything in me to swallow that small sip and I immediately tossed that bottle into the trash. EW!

7. Why are there a zillion Red Robin commercials when there are ZERO locations anywhere around here?

8. I’ve been thinking about how I don’t feel any older with this birthday and then I realized that the clear sign of aging is when you find yourself fantasizing over household appliances. Haha! For instance, I was at Home Depot recently and I just could not stop making eyes at this Electrolux steam washer/dryer set. They were so damn sexy, even my clothes wanted to jump off of me and get inside them! Then earlier tonight my mom bought me a new vacuum and I am so excited to use it that I want to break it out of the box now, at 3AM.

9. I just finished watching the seasons of Mad Men and it has left me fantasizing about endless glasses of whiskey, taking up smoking again, and frolicking about NYC as an Ad Man getting it on with whomever I fancy. Then my fantasy bubble pops and I realize that I’m not Don Draper. *sigh*

10. Earlier this week I lost my phone and was searching all over my car for it, only to then find it in my hand the whole time! Then yesterday, as I was heading out to pick my husband up from work (it was still dark) I went to my car and kept pushing the “unlock” button on my remote. Nothing was happening and I was completely confused. Well, it turns out I wasn’t standing in front of my car but was instead standing in front of my neighbors car which is the same make and model but a different color. This all made me think of this hilarious commercial and so I leave you with this. “No, it’s absolutely pronounced ON-DEEV”

 

Things You Should Know About Introverts

Krystal:

Most of these are totally spot on for me…great post!

1) We need to recharge alone.
This right here is the cusp of the entire introvert v. extrovert debate (if there is one, anyway) – Introverts need to be alone to recharge. We tend to get completely worn out by socializing. This is basically what it means to be an introvert.

2) We don’t hate being around people, but we probably hate crowds.
I love being with people, but if you drop me into a large crowd I instantly feel like I’m alone and invisible. I try to avoid situations where I feel that way, so I may decline your open invitation to some random event. It doesn’t mean I don’t like to be around you, it just means I like to have more control over my surroundings.

3) We don’t mind silence.
I can sit beside you in silence and not think we are having a bad…

Seinfeld: 25 years later and we’re still laughing!

Seinfeld RSToday marks the 25th anniversary of Seinfeld’s first episode. Can you believe that?! It feels like only yesterday that I was sitting around the TV with my parents, cracking up at something crazy Jerry, Elaine, George, and Kramer were doing…oh wait, it WAS only yesterday! Haha!

With Seinfeld holding steady in its syndication status, all of these years later, old and new fans alike have the pleasure of reliving all of the hilarious episodes almost every night of the week. That is impressive after all this time, and like other syndicated shows, such as Friends, Seinfeld’s iconic presence doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon.

So, in honor of the 25th anniversary of one of my favorite sitcoms ever, I wanted to share a clip of my favorite episode. Laugh on, my fellow Seinfeld lovers and cheers to another 25 years of laughs!

Orange is the New Black…or should I say, AWESOME?!

There’s this little show on Netflix called Orange is the New Black, ever heard of it? OF COURSE YOU HAVE! It’s only one of the most popular shows around right now. I mean, I can’t sign on to Facebook, Twitter, or pretty much any other social media outlet without seeing a stream of posts about the addictive sophomore season that hit Netflix last week. It is the show that the people in your office are talking about at the water cooler coffee machine. The show that has such kick ass characters that when you hear those people chatting away about Piper, Alex, Red, or someone nicknamed “Crazy Eyes” you immediately think it’s gossip and you don’t know whether to rise above it or dig in with a spoon and eat it up. Well, I recommend the latter, because it is damn delicious!orange-is-the-new-black-52e7a57275fd3

Having been a Netflix subscriber for many years now, but only being on their DVD mail program, I haven’t truly gotten involved in the streaming side of things. It wasn’t until my husband and I got our Xbox that we decided to change our plan from the mail version to just solely having the streaming one. That is when I discovered this show and I added it to my queue. The problem was, life swept me away and thus my attention to Netflix’s hit new show was put aside. In the meantime, I got my husband sucked into the 24 series, which is one of my favorite shows and he had never seen it, so clearly that had to be rectified. I also spent some time catching up on other shows that I had missed along the way, further putting off OITNB. It wasn’t until last weekend, while sitting in my apartment, alone and bored, that I remembered about this show being in my queue…it also helped greatly that half of my social media connections were talking nonstop about how season 2 was just put up and that they were all chomping at the bit to blow through the 13 episodes as fast as possible. So, obviously I checked it out. I got all cozy on my couch and put on the first season, episode one of thirteen, expecting to like it and just watch it here and there as I could to get caught up with my friends. Yeah right! Instead I spent the entire night binge watching this crazy bad-ass show and before I knew it the sun had come up and I was done with the first season, already salivating for the next one that was only a click away in my queue. It is just that good.1309Cover-EW-OITNB_612x380

This show is a diamond in the rough. The rough being the barren land of summer television programming that has people watching reruns of old favorites more than getting hooked on anything new and/or exciting. Netflix has secured a spot for themselves with the big boys and they are coming at every other show with their guns blazing. OITNB is brought to us from Jenji Kohan, the creator of Weeds, which is clearly why it is such a brilliant program, and it is based on a memoir of the same name by Piper Kerman. So, this prison set drama/comedy/lesbian-loveathon is something the author once lived through and is now sharing with us…and her experience is fucking awesome sauce! Orange is the best thing to hit my television screen in years, and now that I am about to finish season 2, I find myself wishing I could go back to the beginning, like any of you who haven’t seen it yet, and restart the magic that is Piper’s journey in prison. The cast is incredible with Taylor Schilling as the lead role of Piper, Laura Prepon (who I LOVE) playing her ex-girlfriend, Alex, Natasha Lyonne (who I also adore), Jason Biggs (minus his penis being in a pie), Taryn Manning, and many others who are as fleshed out as you’d want any essential characters to be. Each person carries their own weight and leaves a lasting impression, so, even though the “star” would be Schilling in the lead role, she is hardly the only character you’ll notice or find yourself rooting for (or against).
