Let me tell you about a few new obsessions of mine! Starting with - Peekaboo Shoulder Tees.
Forever 21 is LOADED with them and I can't stop myself from buying every single one. I already have 3 shirts of this style! How many does one really need? I feel like the sneak peek of the shoulder is very sexual in a non-conventional sexy way.
Right now I have an online 'bag' full of these shirts, but do I really want to spend my money on them instead of Bamboozle tickets?! I swore to myself that this week will be the week I buy those tickets because my beloved Blink is headlining but it's one or the other! Hmm...
Moving on to my next current obsession - Stevie TV.
I just randomly came across this one day and was like, O.M.G. That's Stevie Ryan from YouTube. She's hot and she's silly and I love her. Her show is all about her impersonating reality TV stars and she always fits the part perfectly! I honestly don't know if I watch this show because it's actually funny or because I just like looking at her because I am a Lezbean. But I'm so happy she has her own show now that I can enjoy every Sunday night.
I'm also staring at a plastic bag completely wrapped around an electric wire outside my window. That can't be safe, right? Is my life going to explode? AH. How does that even happen? I'm scared.
Please let me explain the deliciousness of Pinnacle Whipped Cream vodka. Well, probably any brand of whipped cream vodka is delicious but I like Pinnacle's plastic bottle. It's like they knew clumsy girls like myself would love the shit out of their product so they foresaw the damage that can be done with a glass bottle and prepared against it. So smart.
Lately I've been enjoying more and more drinks (*whispers* alcoholic) but this one definitely takes the cake! Vodka seems to be my drink of choice, which is crazy talk since my 16 year old self first trying vodka made it seem like I was going to die. But anyway! This drink is dangerous because when you mix it with orange juice, it doesn't even seem like you're drinking alcohol at all which makes you just go on and on until you're drooling and foaming out the mouth.
Yup. This is pretty much exactly what it tastes like. And who doesn't like creamsicles??
This stuff is fantastic (but dangerous), though everyone should try it. Just drink responsibly and keep reminding yourself that it IS alcohol! Good day.
After contemplating whether or not I actually wanted a NOOK in my life, I decided to just add it to my handy-dandy wishlist anyway because well, it wouldn't hurt to get it as a gift. I wasn't sure I wanted it for a few reasons: first, I like physically seeing how much of a book I've accomplished reading as I go along. And I also like being able to see how many pages are in a chapter so I know if I have the energy to read just one more.
What type of stupid reasons are those, right? I think I'm just intimidated by new technologies honestly.
BUT, my birthday came and what does my dear Michael get me? DA NOOK!
Here it is.
And here it is in its pretty little cover:
It's so tiny and cute, but I've procrastinated on using it just until recently. I started off with nonsense books, like "The Book of AWESOME 1&2" and "The Mens Guide to Women" (lol!) You know, entertaining little things that you don't really have to concentrate on because each thing is only about 2 pages long. I was so nervous to see how reading an actual story would be on this thing, so I held off on it for months as I finished the Sookie Stackhouse series. (Fantastic series by the way. I miss True Blood!)
I've been hearing about this Hunger Games trilogy and how they're making a movie on it and everything, so I was all like, WHAT IS IT?! I watched the trailer and had people explain the gist of it and I was intrigued. Will this be the first real storybook that I will read on my Nook?!
The answer is Yes. Yes it is. And I love the book and I love the Nook! Before I get into the coolness of the story, let's talk about the coolness of the nook. It's tiny and you can flip the cover back and just read comfortably without getting that cramp in your thumb from holding up a 50LB book. (I'm looking at you, last few books of Harry Potter!) As for my main concerns mentioned above, well, you can hit 'content' as much as you need and you can see how many pages are in the next chapter. And then on the bottom of each page it tells you what page you're on out of how many pages are in the book. Simple as that! You can read as many books at a time as you'd like and it always keeps the place of where you left off. You can download books right onto the thing, HASSLE FREE! But best of all, you turn pages with a button! Who doesn't like pressing buttons?! You can also carry it around with you since it's so light and small. Plus! Think of all the shelf space you'll save not having tons of books to put on them! I support this Nook thing, I do.
My only complaint would be that I can't read magazines on it and that's only because I didn't get the Nook Color. Which is fine because I like not having the back light hurting my eyeBAWLS, but the amount of trees and space that can be saved would be phenomenal.
Now let's talk about the fantastic story I'm reading. The Hunger Games is a trilogy about having to fight and kill in order to be the last one standing. I never thought I'd be interested in this type of thing, but maybe it's because I find myself watching all these hunting and survival shows that Michael watches. Or that the main character is a female and is amazing at those skills. Who knows! But I love it. I'm only on the first book so far, and I think that's what the movie is going to be based on so I don't know what the other two books are about. I'm excited to find out though, that's fer sure.
Who remembers this beauty?! Back in my youth, I loooooved Super Nintendo. I loved Mario Kart (which not many people know originated on this system! Psh) and Aladdin and pretty much all of the Mario games actually. Unfortunately this wasn't my system, but my brother's, so when he decided to get rid of it, I really had no say. (But to be fair, if he decided to get rid of it, it was probably at a time that neither of us had played it for a while) Anywho! My lovely Michael just got his back from his cousin and now this wonderful system is back in my room!
This is good and bad. Good because well, Super Nintendo is awesome and it's another batch of games that I can play besides the Sims. But bad because it brings out my intense gaming temper. I curse and yell and throw things. I'm probably going to end up breaking the whole system one day honestly. You don't really need patience with the Sims because you're controlling everything. Whereas the games on this concentrate solely on you getting through the levels in which someone else has created and let me tell you, some levels are IMPOSSIBLE and tricky! Those little tricksters!
After attempting the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Mario games on Super Mario All Stars, (which are the original Nintendo games) I decided to try Super Mario World which I remember being fantastic because Yoshi is included:
Throughout all of my frustration and tantrums, I'm actually quite proud of myself because I stay determined and I've gotten further in the game than I ever have in my youth.
So thank you Michael, for bringing this system back into my life. It's been a blessing to my fun factor and a curse to my anxiety level. Yay!
