Hi guys, so I start work tomorrow, that’s exciting right?
It is DECEMBER now, which is crazy! Do you like my new December-Jewish Holiday-Appropriate background? Here’s the full image:
That’s exciting right? I didn’t make it, alas, and I didn’t make this one either, but it is also awesome:
Yaaaay. I get endless amounts of glee from the fact that Leonard Nimoy and William Shatner are nice Jewish boys. My people, y’all!
I’ve been a bit dead on my blog, for no good reason. Now that I am not spending my evenings job hunting I should endeavor to, you know, post some more. In the meantime this is what I have been doing these past two weeks, in between jobs:
-I cleaned out my closet. And my dresser. And my shoes, purses, and jewelry box. I took five bag-fulls of stuff to Goodwill, y’all. That was fun.
Guys, my life right now is a little slow. We’re in the post Dragon*Con doldrums so there’s just not much to say, but I want to keep y’all entertained with my witty life commentary and fun stories.
So, what am I doing right now?
Well guys, the new fall television season is running and running strong. I should probably be embarrassed about the fact that so many shows I watch are on the CW but, whatever, I can have the television taste of a 12-year old girl if I want to. I mean, it isn’t my fault that The Vampire Diaries and Gossip Girl are on the CW. And if I want to give the new show Ringer (guys, come on, BUFFY) and the new whacked out season of America’s Next Top Model (farewell Brittany, you were gone too soon, we hardly got to re-know ye, also isn’t Shannon from Cycle 1 a little old to be on the show?) a chance? Well? That’s my prerogative.
Oh I’m also a little embarrassed to admit that I totally watched The Secret Circle last week. WHATEVER, it is on right after The Vampire Diaries. Again, I’ll give it a few more chances. Look, I’m only semi-employed, and one can only apply to so many jobs a day!
So what else am I watching nowadays? Well, Glee was on last night, and it is as horribly awesome as ever. Or maybe that should be awesomely horrible. You know that Glee is slipping when your Glee-obsessed little sister’s Facebook status is “was hit with a harsh reality tonight: Glee is actually a really bad show. And I no longer really have any interest in it…” DISASTER guys. Still, I’ll watch Glee, in the way that one watches a train wreck. You just cannot look away.
Oh you know who does Glee better than Glee? Sesame Street:
This is spot on, maybe the Sesame Street producers should take over Glee. They’ve nailed the longing looks and the glitter!
Since the new Zooey Deschanel show, The New Girl, was one right after Glee I just kept on watching. The show wasn’t as dreadful as I thought it would be. Zooey’s quirk stayed mostly cute and endearing as opposed to whacky and obnoxious. That Douchebag money jar is a funny gag as well. I’ll give it a few more views.
Oh man sidenote guys, i just learned that Shannon from Season 1 of America’s Next Top Model is still a VIRGIN. WHAT?! (For those who don’t know, America’s Next Top Model‘s shtick this season is bringing back crazy bitches from past seasons, that’s why we have this mix of hot mess happening).
I am also being weird and playing a video game, which never happens, I lack hand-eye coordination so I don’t play video games. However, this Portal thing has me hooked, it is a puzzle game (I hate puzzles also) but it is sort of fun and has this macabre sense of humor and guys, THE CAKE IS A LIE.
Y’all should play Portal if you haven’t yet. You’ll start seeing little boxes and Portal guns everywhere.
I promise that soon I will start writing about things that are not television or video games, I’m just having some major couch time this week! Dexter doesn’t help, of course, he’s been ultra-snuggly this week, and how can you disturb a happy cat when he’s snuggled up next to you on the couch? You can’t.
I know I went poof for a few more days, but I have some good excuses for it.
Firstly, isn’t this weather great? I love the fall, everything seems crisper and brighter and better. And sure it has been a little rainy these past few days, but who cares? Fall, guys, fall.
Jon’s birthday was last week. I got him this cake from Whole Paycheck Foods.
I also got him the Carnivorous Plant kit about which I wrote. I’ll update on that later this week. Unfortunately we won’t see any actual growth for a few months, so the first few updates will probably just be pictures of dirt. Life takes time y’all.
On Friday Jon and I volunteered to help out our friend Heather Gordon at the Golden Belt Third Friday Artist Demo Night. A number of the artists in the studios were doing fifteen-minute demonstrations of their work throughout the night and Heather, who was organizing the demos, needed some extra hands to help out. Jon got off easy, he just had to film a few videos. Me? I had to wear a sandwich board:
