Crack at the Boston Aquarium

Friday, May 6th, 2011

This video title was a smidge misleading… I was thinking of a different type of crack, and was utterly horrified.

Man, where did they get this video of me at Stripper 101?!?!
Lesson #1 = Get paid!

Loving this song & the pole dancing skills are pretty snazzy.

Hibiscus Flowers = Not Badass.

Monday, July 27th, 2009

Recently I’ve gotten into surfing. I go to a ladies’ surf night in NH and I’ve been having an amazing time. I’ve started looking at surfboards to see what my options are and have noticed that huge number of women’s surf boards come with hibiscus flower motif’s on them. I’ve also been looking at getting a new motorcycle helmet since my current one is pretty old & should be replaced. In my browsing for women’s motorcycle helmets, I’ve found that the hibiscus motif plague has invaded this area as well. It’s crazy! The manufacturers of inherently bad-ass things are decreasing their “bad-ass factor” by sticking hibiscus flowers on everything. What the heck is up with that?!? I like pink flowers as much as the next girl, but when I’m looking to buy something for one of my non-frou-frou hobbies, I don’t want a stupid hibiscus flower stuck on it….

Therefore, in honor of this phenomenon, I give you a list of 6 things that are made WAYYY less bad-ass (and/or butch) by having a hibiscus flower on them……

#6. A mens’ tie. Unless you’re from Hawaii (and even that is up for debate), you should not be wearing these.

#5. A Knife. A knife is inherently bad-ass. So, why would you go about and muck it up with a design on it? Imagine yourself on a dark night in a bad section of town. A thug jumps out of the darkness and challenges you to a knife fight. Then you whip out this “shank”. True, you might very well win the fight, but only because your opponent would be extremely vulnerable while they are rolling around on the ground in utter hysterics.

#4. A motorcycle. Good for you for customizing your ride, but really? Couldn’t you have gone with some skulls or flames? Or flaming skulls?

#3. A motorcycle helmet. Just imagine yourself:  Sitting pretty wearing your pink hibiscus helmet, riding your hibiscus motorcycle. Looking the the total opposite of bad-ass. Although this look definitely has potential to work if you are employed as a flower delivery person…….

#2. A surfboard. You could totally be one of the guys with this awesome surfboard with a floral motif. Except none of the guys would ever be caught dead riding your chicksauraus-maximus board.

#1. Cufflinks. One question: Why are these even necessary when you can buy cufflinks with ammo on them?

Fear of losing words.

Friday, June 19th, 2009

There’s been a whirlwind of craziness around this house. Devon’s server broke, so all of our websites were down for a while, as well as email. My email is somewhat working now, although all of my old e-mail is gone from the server as well as my current laptop. Luckily it should be saved on my old laptop, but it’s gonna take a while to get it all moved over.

I dunno why, but it’s really nerve wracking that all of my old emails from the past 10 years could be lost. Emails from old friends and ex’s regarding situations long past. The first emails that D and I ever exchanged. Emails from dear friends that remind me why I love them. Really happy stories that are sometimes forgotten, as well as poignant words that helped me get through some of my darkest hours. I’m sure that I’ll be able to recover the data from my old laptop, but I just have so many conversations that I want to keep. It sounds somewhat rediculous, but I’d certainly end up going through a period of mourning if it was all lost.

It’s moments like these that make me want to start soley communicating via the mighty pen.

Productive Spring day.

Thursday, April 16th, 2009

I feel like I had a productive and enjoyable spring day. I ordered a bunch of stuff online, that we’ve been desperately needing. Bamboo shades to block the sun in our bedroom in the AM, a new comforter (our current one outdates D & I’s relationship), a big wagon to hall yard junk in addition to Fifi, etc…. I went to the dry cleaners, and did the bi-weekly grocery store trip. I hung out with Fifi on the deck and read a great book as Fifi soaked up the sun’s rays. I planted 4 rows of sugar snap peas in my garden, and I made little hangers for my garden tools in the shed. And I’m currently in the process of making greek-spiced baked shrimp with feta for dinner. Yeah, domestic goddess!

Attention Spammers!

You can not fool me. I know having an e-mail subject with something like “itunes invoice #687″ may fool some people, but I’ve got your number, people. My email address is not associated with the itunes account that I use, so there is no way that I should be receiving anything related to that….
In addition, you might want to change your “handle”. Receiving a “itunes invoice” from a sender called “VIAGRA. Official Site” is a dead give away.
