    2020: a recap

    don’t call it a comeback, i’ve been here for …. more than 10 days trying to get something posted. i’ve been trying to put together SOMETHING. ANYTHING. i mean, it’s been since august, FFS. either way, it’s christmas eve. i’m off from work. my gifts are wrapped and i have nothing else to do so i figured i’d start my 2020 recap post. because it will probably take me the literal rest of the year to finish it.   2020 was undeniably a shitstorm for everyone. but, if i could be frank, it wasn’t all that bad. life has a way of going on, even through the bad times. because you have to…

    i’m still here!

    well, hello you!  via GIPHY wow, even i didn’t realize how long it’s been. what’s funny is that i thought i’d be a blogging machine during this quarantine. turns out, when even less is going on in your life than usual, it’s hard to think up content. like, what is there to say? then there’s the fact that i have zero drive to do it. i think about it constantly but when it comes time to sit down and do it, there i am on the internet filling my carts on every clothing website with summer clothes that i probably won’t get to wear. or, it’s about to get reeeal…

    oh schitt. it’s over.

    more technical difficulties! i wrote this a few days ago and tried to schedule it over the weekend to post on monday (yesterday). i’m not sure what was going on but it wouldn’t save, it wouldn’t schedule. a mess. you’re lucky i love you guys and this space and this show or else this would have been tossed in the internet garbage a long time ago. the day after i posted my last post, i got semi-furloughed. i say semi because i report to work every day and, if today was any indication, i’m getting paid, but we’re closing early and technically i am supposed to leave at 1. that…

    it’s streaming season, bitches!

    who am i kidding? it’s always streaming season. but, with winter in full swing and our current favorites still on hiatus, we’re all hunkering down ready to dive head first into a *insert streaming service here* binge. that’s my favorite kind of diving, tbh. but what about the shows that didn’t make it? the ones that were never given a chance to shine? the ones that were loved and lost. in this attempt to make this a viable blog and creative outlet, i will now list the television shows that were given a raw deal. plus a few others that should be available to stream, but unfortunately are not. note:…

    fangirl, full force

    if you’ve been here for a while, you know that i have a problem with my inner fangirl. she’s fierce and strong-willed. she’s the elizabeth warren of fangirls. she’s also kind of annoying and obsessive. i love the bitch, but sometimes i don’t like her. anyway, she was out in FULL FORCE last week (8 days, but who’s counting?) because something happened that i still can’t believe happened. NO, THIS IS NOT ABOUT HARRY STYLES. so, i’ve mentioned before that i thoroughly enjoy the show impractical jokers. i also thoroughly enjoy sal for said show. sal also does stand up comedy and i got it in my head that there would be nothing…

    britney never after

    It’s late and I have to go to bed, but not before I get this off my chest. Lifetime – what the hell, man? I’ll accept the travesty that was Beaches. And that one cut me to the core. But this Britney Ever After trainwreck? ABSOLUTELY NOT. I don’t know who’s running the show over there but I think their position needs to be re-evaluated. Britney Jean Spears is an icon. AN ICON I TELL YOU! Has she fallen from grace a bit? Sure. I’m not as big of a fan as I was back in the day. Does that change the fact that she WAS pop culture from 1998-2003?…

    repeating history

    Has anyone seen Graves? No? Well, you should. It’s about a former president, who was named the worst president in US history. He made some bad decisions and policies during his presidency. Now he’s seen the error of his ways and wants to make amends with the country. Or, at least the groups of people he may have wronged. It’s got Nick Nolte, Sela Ward (yes, I’m 65 years old), Skylar Astin and Ernie Hudson. It’s on Epix. You can get season one On Demand. *just a note: from what i’ve heard about the show, Graves is supposed to be a mix of the Regan and George W. Bush presidencies.…

    christmas carpool

    Can you believe Christmas is in 5 days? I sure can’t. I wanted to share with you not one but TWO early Christmas gifts I got and am googly eyed over. And they’re from a celebrity! I kid. I kid. They’re the newest Carpool Karaoke segments from one of my many celebrity husbands, James Corden. Last Tuesday he released the long-awaited (for me, anyway) Bruno Mars collab. It was, as expected, amazing. My favorite part was when James said that his woman wouldn’t be wearing Versace, she’d be wearing Target. ya damn right, boo. Then, on Thursday, Jimmy dropped the All I Want for Christmas is You mix. As I’ve mentioned before,…

    a favorites mish-mosh

    You know what time it is? It’s Friday Favorites time! I don’t have many this week but I wanted to share them anyway because it’s been a while. The excitement, guys. I feel it. Anyway, let’s get into it. I was scrolling through Facebook the other day and a sponsored post caught my eye. I didn’t even know this existed, but now that I do, I need it in my life right now. i want you, i need you, oh baby oh baby. Random? Yes. Beautiful? Also yes. I am in no position to have a bathroom or kitchen of my own to grout the shit out of it with this…

    channel surfing: fall programming

    It’s that time of the year! The one where the days get shorter, your pants get longer and all of your favorite shows are back on TV. We all know that I watch a lot of television so my excitement is pretty palpable. I’m here today with a round up my favorites/the ones I’m most excited for. That way, we could figure out which shows we have in common and then we could have lengthy discussions about the lives of fictional characters. It will be fun, promise. Ready? Let’s go! This is Us – LAWWWDDD. I have so much to say about this show. I don’t want to say much…
