Forgive me bloggees, for I have sinned. It has been forever-and-a-day since I last posted. I’m going to really try to start scribbling more often … I think once I make a big transition next week … I’ll get myself on track. Am I absolved? 🙂
I’ve not seen DESPICABLE ME yet, but I’m going to find a way to go see it soon. I’ve heard from a good number of my friends that it’s really funny. I saw this picture and it kind of reminded me of what it’s like when you’ve got things tugging at yer mind … you know, all kinds of things that can be either good or bad, but just a little too much at times. Make sense? I’m going through that right now, but by end of the day on 11 August … my life will certainly calm down. And I’ll be extremely thankful for that in so many ways and there will be some sadness to not be working with some people on a daily basis, but it’s ALL good in the end! 🙂
I don’t have to admit anything, but I’ll let you in on a secret … if you’ve read my ramblings then you prolly already know this: I love reality tv. I don’t watch as much of it as I used to, but I do have my favourites … The Real World, Real Housewives of New Jersey (RHoNJ), The Rachel Zoe Project, Kell on Earth, Flipping Out and My Life on the D-List. Yer prolly saying, “That seems like a lot to me.” Let me reassure you that this list pales in comparison to the past. 🙂 So, we’ve had our fair share of villains during the 24-year run of The Real World; however, I’ll have to say that Ryan on this season is the Villain of all Villain’s on the show. I can describe him in one word (a lot of others, but I’m trying to be somewhat appropriate here!): asshole. He’s the biggest hypocrite and I’m so curious to know if Preston finds out just about ALL of the things Ryan has done to him … I’d be PISSED. As for my girls on RHoNJ … I’m so hoping that Danielle gets kicked off the show — I’ve NEVER seen anyone LIE as if she cannot be caught in her lies … she’s delusional and doesn’t seem to remember that when she says/does things on camera — people are GOING to see/hear it. I was happy to see that Kim-G finally saw Danielle for who she has always been. It was good to see Dina back on for the Christening! Okay, enough … right? 🙂
Last night I had sushi with one of my former students and her mum. It was an absolutely wonderful evening — I’d had such a long week @ work and it’s just what I needed. I’ve aggravated an old pinched nerve and I’ve been dealing with pain … add that to the nonsense I’ve been ‘dealing’ with and it just makes everything tiresome! And I’m having lunch today with another former student … I’m looking forward to it even though she’s a Gator. Blah. I get to pick up Charlie this afternoon … we’re making a trial run to see if Nica can share her house with him … I’m hoping it WORKS out because she really needs a playmate for the times when I just need some peace and quiet — don’t get me wrong, I love, love my puppy, but Jack Russell Terriers aren’t — most of the time — the ‘let me lay down and not pester you to play, go for a walk’ kinda dogs!
The oil has stopped gushing into the Gulf; however, the devastation will take decades to deal with … it’s been heart wrenching watching or seeing the animals that have died or suffer because of the oil. I’ve been watching the show Whale Wars and if I could single-handedly put a stop to Japan’s butchering of endangered Humpback Whales and the slaughter of dolphins, I’d do it no matter what the cost. I’m so enraged by the lack of understanding the Japanese people have about EXTINCTION and the killing of some of the most prolific and intelligent creatures on the face of this planet. I’m personally responsible for 11 of my friends doing a Tour of Asia totally cancelling 10 days in Japan … I think people need to boycott Japan completely — screw their “culture of killing whales and dolphins” in the name of “research” … yeah, research my ass. You can learn more about the atrocities Japan is committing in the name of research by visiting Sea Shepherd — this site focuses on illegal whaling, murder of other ocean life and environmental issues involving our oceans.
Okay … that’s it for me for now … I’m going to make an effort to blog more … I promise. 🙂
Here’s to Friday!
