I have been quiet for a few days. I experienced a small meltdown, which is normal for me, but things are looking on the brighter side now. Lots has been happening. Lots I would love to talk about in detail, but I must stay patient and not spill the beans all at once. And yes, I’ll let you know as soon as I have the green light to spill all the beans. 😉
I recently started watching Honey Boo Boo on TLC. Everyone has been making fun of this show, and I guess, curiosity killed me to the point where I picked up my remote control and consciously decided to give the show a chance. Well… Episode 1 definitely threw me off my couch seat. I mean, you get the full unedited gross version of a Redneck family who literally sticks to every imaginable stereotype. South Park makes fun of people like that on a regular basis. And I’m a die hard South Park fan.
Logically then, watching Honey Boo Boo became a trip down the bowels of the earth. And I must say I love every moment of it. This is television at its worst, I know. TLC exploits this family and makes millions. Do I care? I personally think the whole concept is genius. Every episode I watch, I smile. I feel good about myself. I am entertained to the point I’m getting addicted to the whole debacle playing on my screen. This is the best thing that could have happened. And I’m not ashamed to say I’ve become a die hard Honey Boo Boo fan.
So what else do I do when I’m not following Honey Boo-Boo’s adventures? Well until recently, I’ve been watching the baseball postseason but the Nationals lost against the Cardinals and since then, I lost track of who’s gonna snatch the title. Next season the Nats get Strasburg back, so I’ve no doubt they’ll kick some ass. And no, despite living in NYC, I don’t root for the Yankees. They have enough fans, they don’t need my love.
I’m also on Week 3 of the Insanity workout. Every day I do this thing, I sweat like a maniac, and the neighbor below must hate me but do I care? NO! I feel like a champ when I do these exercises! I would never have thought I could jump so high and push so hard, but hey, everything I want comes with enough determination so I can’t complain.
Writing has been taking a lot of my time too, Death by Chocolate Volume 2 is coming out soon – please make sure to check the serial once Chapter 1 is out on www.curiosityquills.com! And yes, I’ll make announcements before Chapter 1 is released. Death by Chocolate Vol 1 will also be published as a novella around Thanksgiving. I’ll make announcements for that too. 🙂
I also did Lasik surgery a few weeks ago and boy, I like it !! 20/20 baby! I can now rock these sunglasses without the blur! 🙂
And last but not least, I added a few tattoos to my already impressive collection. Last appointment is on Friday before my guy flies to California for his new gig – which means a new vacation destination for 2013! Looking forward to starting my sleeve.
Yep, I’ve kept busy, but everything has been positive and rewarding. The best comment I got lately? The owner of the tattoo shop – and please if you live in NYC or nearby, go check Invisible Tattoo – this shop is packed with talented artists – officially welcomed me to the tattoo family, which is a pretty cool thing to say to a nerdy chick like me.
I love tattoos. I love the art world. I love my freaking life.
Peace out until further news!
