A 80's-tastic Valentine's Day Card

Magnum PI ValentinesIt wasn't until late last year that I fully understood the sexiness that is Tom Selleck as Thomas Magnum, when I would catch random reruns on TV. I know that body hair is a turn off to some people, but I don't think that's the case with me. The chest hair, the short shorts, the tan. If I could have a type, it would definitely be him, so I made this little Valentine's day card for myself. Nothing wrong with that, right? 

It's a silly little thing to make myself happy. I wonder if I move to Hawaii will my odds of finding that, increase. I don't know. I don't think very many guys are into body hair nowadays. 

Oh well. 

Happy Valentine's Day!

11 Things

11 ThingsSo I was working on a '21 things about me' post to update my 'About' page when I saw this meme on Amanda Rose's blog. I scrapped my idea and decided to do this instead in the meantime because it seems more fun and why not? 

These are the rules:
1. Post these rules.
2. Post a photo of yourself.
3. Answer the questions set for you in the original post.
4. Create 11 new questions and ask people to answer them.
Amanda's Questions: 
1. What's your favorite letter of the alphabet?
'A' because my name starts with it, and because it's the first letter in the alphabet and who doesn't like to be number one? 
2. If you could trade places with someone for a day, who would it be and why?
Beyonce, because Beyonce.  

3. What is the current song on loop on your i-Pod?

The Edge of Seventeen by Stevie Nicks

4. Who is your favorite actor?
Stanley Tucci. I love that he's a character actor and people recognize him but can't remember his name. Personally, I think he's fabulous! 
5. What's your favorite blog to read?
It'd be a tie between IFB and Yes and Yes. 
6. What was the worse thing you could remember about the decade you born?
Parachute pants, neon, acid wash, and crimped hair. Thankfully I was too young to take part in any of that. 
7. Living or Dead, who are three people you'd want to have a dinner party with?
Dean Martin, John Candy, and Lucille Ball. I imagine I'd have a stomachache by the end of the night due to laughter. 
8. What's a pet peeve of yours?
Dishes clinking in the sink or against other dishes while you wash them. 
9. What was your best subject in school?
Right now, all of them. 4.0 baby, but favorite is probably what's implied. All of my Fashion Merchandising classes, of course and Cultural Anthropology was completely fascinating. 
10. What's the first thing that comes to your head when you see the words "movie quote"?
"But 'chu ain't got no legs Lieutenant Dan!" 
11. What do you do for a living? Does it make you happy?
Data transcriptions for a market research company. Basically, I listen to people complain all day, and I type it all out. Do you think that makes me happy? No, but it pays those bills and paying bills makes me happy. So in a way, yes, but no. 
Now, my questions! If you answer these questions, leave a link in the comments. I'd love to read your answers! 
1.What movie have you seen the most and how many times have you watched it? 
2. What's the last show you marathoned on Netflix? 
3. The TARDIS appears in your front yard. Which doctor steps out and when do you travel to? If you don't know what I'm talking about, you suddenly find that you have the ability to time travel, when do you travel to? 
4. If you could learn any language, what would it be? 
5. Buried or cremated? 
6. What's one thing that creeps you out? 
7. What book are you currently reading? 
8. What's the most daredevil thing you've done? 
9. If you could have game night with five celebrities, who would it be? 
10. What's something most people don't know about you? 
11. What's your favorite summer activity?

My Poopies


If you follow me on Instagram you'll see plenty of pictures of this little guy. This is my poopies. I don't know why I gave him that name, it's just the one that stuck. Yes, I do sleep with a stuffed animal and guess what, he DID come with me to Mexico in December when I went for Christmas. He got to enjoy the Mazatlan air and sun for a couple of days out on the balcony. I got him while I was in Vegas but didn't actually start sleeping with him until about July 2010. Hahahahaha. Lame, I know, but whatevs. He's like my little buddy. My apartment doesn't allow pets so I'm sure if they did, he'd probably get traded in for a cat or small dog. He's like a pet I don't have to feed, or clean up after. Score! 

And that was this months random post!

Never Say No To Panda

We all know life isn't sunshine and daisies. This very moment is when I'm going to complain about my jackass neighbors who decided they wanted to hang out and drink beer in the alley right when I was going to sleep. Then proceeded to do to so for the next four hours. Mind you the alley echos, I'm a light sleeper, they were right outside my window and I had to wake up at 7.  I didn't get to sleep until about 6 this morning. I'm not a violent person but I really just wanted to choke them so they could just shut their traps and let everyone sleep, and now I just want to cry because I'm tired as HELL! 

But this video is my saving grace. I sort of, oh hell, who am I kidding? I DO get like this when I'm in a bad mood or really aggravated. I've seen it about 6 times this morning to keep myself from getting worse. It sort of lightens my mood a bit. This is probably my all time favorite commercial(s). 


Hopefully I'll be okay later on today.

The Smarty

A couple of days ago, I met up with my friend Yoli before she moves later on this week (!!!). I hadn't seen her since last year and we had made a plan to buy each other Christmas gifts from the 99cent store. We did this in 2010 as well, but it was just a regular gift exchange. 

(Yoli, I think we should keep doing this even though you're moving! *wink wink nudge nudge*)

She knows I love novelty items, so she got me a set of cheesy mustaches, and I'm here to show you 'The Smarty':

Have a good Saturday!
