I don’t have much going on, but thought I’d leave you with some random musings. In any event, just something so you don’t have to be greeted with Senor Scott’s face first thing.

1. Summer is knocking.

2. My world-saving friend RC found this awesome blog post written by a high school freshman that totally breaks down the amazing fashion of Rayanne Graff from My So-Called Life. If you don’t know who/what/when Rayanne Graff or MSCL is, you can skip this.

3. It’s not until really far away, but … we’re going to Alaska!! I had to say something because I’m really excited, but that’s all I’ll say for now.

4. I’m stoked about the new Publix that just opened in Lake Worth. I have Boar’s Head subs at my fingertips. Well, a mile and a half-ish from my fingertips. Does anyone else get excited about a grocery store opening?

Happy Sunday! How’d your weekend go??

Have you noticed the Asian sensation on the news?

Maybe you haven’t, but I have.  Even though I don’t have an “I’m Asian” soapbox (OK, maybe I do, but it’s super flimsy!), it is nice to see Asian women not being portrayed as a trench girl, dragon lady or some other sexualized and/or  femme fatale figure.  Little Asian girls growing up today can aspire to be something outside the doctor-massage therapist-engineer-ho box.  Isn’t that nice!?

Growing up, the only things Asian I can remember are: Connie Chung, moo goo gai pan, my 4 cousins and a Cabbage Patch Kid doll that went to China.  She wasn’t Chinese, she just went there – her t-shirt said so.

Now, though, there’s something for everyone.  It’s not just blonde Barbie out there anymore.  There’s a teacher Barbie, Italian Barbie, doctor Barbie, Amazonia Barbie (it’s for real, I looked it up) … The Barbie I knew drove a red Corvette and had a pink toilet.  For real.

Who knew candy corn got their own freakin’ day? Though I find the buggers to be revolting (I would rather eat a can of peas), I’m going to provide you with useless trivia about the said candy:

-Candy corn has 3.57 calories per kernal

-Candy corn was invented by George Renninger in the 1880s.

Enough of that.  So, I’m happy to report that we’re plugged back into technology.  That is, we have a computer again.  You hear that, Robbers, you’re not keeping us out of the loop any longer!  Holla!  It’s so nice to have a computer (and cable!) again.  Not that we’re hard-core gamers or uber social media site users, but … it’s like, how you’re just more comfortable knowing you have a large supply of toilet paper – not that you love toilet paper, but you like to know it’s there to use.  Sorry, that was bad, but you know what I mean. 

So, stay tuned for more (frequent) posts to come 🙂 


Not having a computer or cable really  makes one feel … behind!  Behind on news.  Behind on goss.  Just a general 2000-and-late feeling.  Cable isn’t as much missed as my computer, though.  I was going through some pictures last night, and then I was sad thinking about all the other pictures I had … on my computer 😦  Oh well.  Maybe some things are better left just in memory.  No physical evidence to challenge a thought.  ohhhh

In other news, JP and I finally finished Season 1 of Lost.  Without cable, we’ve been heading to the library for all of our viewing pleasures.  I’m not sure why we picked Lost; probably because Disc 1 for Season 1 was in stock.  Had to start somewhere, right?  And I’m glad to see Matthew Fox in a successful series; I was a Party of Five fan.  What’s more, I like watching all the scenes that are supposed to be taking place in Australia.  The light switches aren’t like that in Australia.  They Sydney Harbor doesn’t look like that! 

Taking so much time between posts isn’t good.  There are a hundred things I wanted to say, and in the end, I talk about tv shows and … mint ice cream.  That’s the color we painted one of the bedrooms this weekend.  Adios, Purple Room!  Bedroom #2 was smeared with Harbor Aqua.  My mom even came down to help us with the painting party, which was awesome!  We were able to knock out both rooms in a day.  We’ll have to go back and do some touching up – and to paint the trim – but it’s great to see new colors on the wall.
