Today is August 31st and I can feel summer drawing to a close. My friends are going back to their respective schools; others are settling in at jobs. My day to day life won’t be much different as the seasons change, but I feel different. The humid summer haze has lifted, leaving cool, breezy days. We’re approaching my favorite time of the year. Labor Day through New Years; I love...
Pet Post: Tiki the Love Bird
If you know me, you know that animals are a huge part of my life. And if you’ve ever been to my house, you definitely know I love pets. Since they’re so important to me, I figured I should write a little something about each of the current animals living in my (parents’) home. I’ll start with the oldest: Tiki, our Peach-Faced Love Bird. I’m not exactly sure when we...
Peanut Butter & Co. and other NYC Adventures
Yesterday, after some minor transit problems, we went into New York to check out Peanut Butter & Co., a peanut butter specialty shop and cafe of sorts. I am more than a little obsessed with peanut butter, so I was excited. When we finally got there (240 Sullivan Street, New York, NY), my initial reaction was, “Wow, this is a nice bathroom.” Because I had to pee pretty bad, and...
Last night, I hosted a “Jim Carrey” themed party. It was the sequel to the “Will Smith” party we had last year. I admit, it wasn’t nearly as successful, but I think everyone enjoyed themselves. I wore a big, orange sweatshirt and spray-dyed a blonde wig blue to be Clementine from Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (my favorite movie, ever). Rob was Fingerling,...
Inglourious Basterds Movie Review
First off… if you haven’t seen it yet, don’t read. Spoilers ahead! I saw a 12:01 AM showing of Inglourious Basterds, and I had been looking forward to it for awhile. First, let it be said that I like Tarantino films, but I’m not obsessed with them like some are. The Kill Bill movies are good. I loved Grindhouse. But other then that, eh. Pulp Fiction and Reservoir Dogs are...
Today has been less than eventful. However, I did learn how to do a French braid. The only problem is my hair is awkward lengths. Here’s the best I could come up with: I kind of like it.
My First Photo Shoot
On Saturday, August 15th, I had my very first photo shoot. It was with Cudzoo, an awesome group of ladies who perform with their band, The Faggettes. I was pretty nervous, and the whole ordeal was rather stressful. We had the shoot in the city, and we got a little turned around during our drive to their apartment. Luckily, we figured it out and were able to get shooting on time. The whole thing...
So it happened, I finally succumbed to Blogger. I tried having an independent blog of sorts; didn’t work out. And as much as I love my 7-year-old LiveJournal, nobody reads it anymore. So time to join the rest of the world and start blogging. I’m mostly going to use this blog to document “growing up”. Basically, my life from college graduation, onward. I’ve got a bunch...
