I didn’t sleep well last night.
And while it could be that I have the sleep pattern of a psychopath, have 22,000 items still left on my to-do list, trash on trash television programs patiently waiting for me on my DVR to watch, 2 books I’m currently reading, wondering what James Franco is up to in a very moment, etc. etc. etc.
Last night, however, I’m going to blame lack of sleep on this bitch.
You’ve probably have started to see previews for the upcoming film Annabelle, which is the prequel to The Conjuring and follows the story of a couple who begin to experience supernatural incidents involving a vintage doll shortly after their home is invaded by satanic cultists.
Now, listen. It’s known I have a fiery love for all things Horror films, but let me have a moment of honesty.
Antique dolls creep me out. I can watch Child’s Play all day and not blink an eye, but those old school dolls? Hand me my purse, because I’m out.
My spirit still isn’t right from Dead Silence.
Now here comes this damn doll’s cousin Annabelle twerking all over my peace with her creepiness. To me, she was the scariest part of The Conjuring and she was only in the film for a grand total of probably about 15 minutes. She scared the hell out of us, got her check and bounced, and returning to terrorize in 30 seconds or less until next month. And yes, I’m the girl that changes the commercial every time she arrives on my television and puts on the channel with all the church programs or The Disney Channel. Annabelle wouldn’t DARE step in Mickey’s house with that shit.
Arriving in my face also, is another story.
Despite my punk ass feelings toward her, will I be in attendance for the Annabelle premiere?
Scream out in theaters with this idiot when Annabelle hits theaters everywhere October 3rd.
How is this thing generated?
If I win do I win a lifetime supply of Cheez-Its or James Franco paraphernalia?
How do I vote for someone?
Is Simon Cowell over picking the winner? Is there a winner? At the end of the day, aren’t we ALL winners??
BUT, it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these, so I’m throwing this in my pile of YES and giving it a go.
So thank you to the lovely Dayeanne Hutton over at Potpurrri, a fashion blog for eclectic girls, for nominating me for the “Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award”.
1. Who is your number one fashion inspiration?
As basic as this is going to sound, my #1 fashion inspo is Audrina Patridge. Yes, the girl from the show I can’t quit ever, The Hills. My grandchildren will
suffer be watching this program and reliving Miss Patridge’s style.
The pet debate on adding a little fur baby edition to my roof has been an ongoing scrimmage for a few years now.
Should I or shouldn’t I?
Shouldn’t I or should I?
Well, in the midst of summertime madness and most likely too much sunshine oozing into my brain cells, I’d decided that I definitely should take a jump into the kennel and become a pet mama….which only meant that naturally I’d live to regret that decision.
As the news is fully out there, the world is still rocked by yesterday’s announcement of the death of actor, comedian, screenwriter and producer Robin Williams. Williams for most has been admired and raved for his incredible range of talent in films like Good Will Hunting, Dead Poets Society, Patch Adams, One Hour Photo, and an on and on going list that could NOT be completed without Mrs. Doubtfire. Robin Williams’ work has touched the universe in one way or another for his talent, but most importantly what is most tragic is that he seemed like a genuine, humble, all around nice human being despite the fact that he publicly and privately battled his own personal demons. Celebrity deaths are nothing rare but this, like the death of Paul Walker and Marilyn Burns to name a few, truly hit me in one way or another. For Robin, as one of my favorite actors it was never a piece of work of his I didn’t like or completely get lost in–he had the amazing ability to make us laugh, root for him and even in some works scare us all at a drop of a hat(If you haven’t seen One Hour Photo rent it NOW). And always taught those who looked up to him it was okay to be weird and eccentric and forever think outside of the normal. Thank you, Mr. Williams, may your talents forever live on and may you finally be at peace.
Coming into 2013, this year had a LOT to compete with in comparison to all of the changes that were made in 2012. I had moved out, broken up, started a blog, lost some old friends and gained some new ones. Like all of us I had no idea what to expect and now as I sit in the final day of this year I have to say this was the most interesting because I got to build on what has changed, grow more into the person I want to be, and truly take in what all 2013 has taught me.
Here’s what I’ve learned.
1 Despite what Drake says, it’s okay to be open to new friends.
Overall I’ve gotten closer to people who were already in my life in some capacity but one person definitely comes to mind as a new friend I’ve gained this year and I couldn’t imagine having to have gone through this year without her. Her wit, her support, her wisdom, her encouragement–thank you for always being there to listen, to drink, to dance, throw shade, vent, make me laugh and proving it’s okay to let strangers into your circle.
At least once a month I like to throw in something I created on Throwback Thursday called “Throwback Tales”, which goes back in time to something ridiculous I’ve experience so we can all sit and laugh at
what a fool how interesting life can be at times.
Considering this is the last Thursday of 2013, I saved this particular tale and something that happened this summer’s end for last. It definitely isn’t the most outrageous incident that has happened, but it inspired three parts of Throwback Tales and it’s something I said I would never, ever, ever do.
TRY ONLINE DATING.
But after being pressured from friends and family members probably secretly browsing through brochures to throw me into a convent, I gave into the idea for over an entire month. And lived to blog about it.
