Bringing it back

So I got all busy with working and sometimes when that happens, I just don't have the time to be blogging as well. But back in the game again. Starting with Lost. So what did everyone think?

I just finished watching the season finale of Mad Men. OMG - So good. All the women standing up to Don. Don breaking down. New company. Loved it. Here is a great recap of Roger Sterling one liners from the season.

Video Break

Since my job is getting a little busy, most posts from me will be random videos.

This one - Drunkest guy going to get more beer. To the sounds of Jamirquai - Virtual Insanity.

craziest landings

Sometimes you need a brain break. So here is mine for the day.

In St. Maarten. The airport has a particularly short runway that ends just 40 feet from beach, leaving large planes just barely enough room to land. So they have to come in low, directly over the beach, making it a prime destination for an afternoon of quiet, relaxing sunbathing.(via Cracked.com)

Just in case you were needing one

In an only can happen in Vegas scenario, I am walking out of the Venetian tonight and look up and see they have a T-Rex on display. WHICH YOU CAN BUY IN AN AUCTION. October 3. So in case you were in need of a giant dinosaur for your living room, better get to Vegas on the 3rd.The T-Rex name is Samson.

It is like 1992 all over again

So back when I was a freshman in high school, I got my first pair of black high top chuck tailors. I LOVED them. I called them my "shiny happy people" shoes mostly because my mom bought them for me only if I would promise not to complain if I was wearing them. I am not sure I was actually able to keep that promise, but I think sometimes  I tried. I wore them with skirts, and dresses and flannel shirts sometimes I would switch up between them and the black Doc's, but I loved these shoes. Then I got a pair of low tops that were green with yellow stitching and those were equally amazing. 

By the time 1995 rolled around, the chuck fetish had kind of worn off, I think it was more about the Steve Madden shoes going into college, but I am pretty sure there are pictures from freshman year of college with the green chucks (and I think a warner bros t-shirt). 

Market travels

So this past weekend my friend Chris was here and Sunday we went to one of my fav markets Spitalfields market. Chris took some great pictures from the day.

 

Halloween

Yippee! I am able to make the Graveroff's halloween party! So exciting. Since I am already excited about it, I have started thinking of costumes. I think I will probably go in a little bit of my theme of sports so football fan it is.

I had a book of quotes

When I was a moody pre-teen and teenager I had two movies that I lurved. Say Anything and the Breakfast club. My god I watched that movie so many times. While not as many as the Princess Bride, it was pretty close.

I also had a quote book at some point and almost every quote was from the Breakfast club. I remember rewinding the tape over and over to make sure I had written down the quote correctly. thank god for the internet now and that i can just google all the quotes, but at the time that was not an option and they were in a book. 

So it is a terrible loss today of John Hughes. I LOVED his movies and I might have to download and watch a bunch of them this weekend. 

Some quotes. Add your own faves:

Andrew: We're all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that's all.

Vacation time

So I am very close to taking my summer holiday only 10 more days! I figure I should get cracking on my update from the last holiday. So preview of the bigger  post that I will do this weekend. The lovely sounds of Florence.

YouTube - WTF?

Sometimes, you are travelling around the internet and someone has posted just the most bizzare video from YouTube. This week I have found it. I don't get the joke, I don't know why you would every decide to put this up for the world to see, but I am so glad you did because it made me laugh out loud. I give you:

Nosferatu singing Lady GaGa. Can anyone tell me who is the guy on the poster behind him besides criss angel? It looks like it might be Brad Pitt. (thank you SIMYP)

 

Yes I am still kind of stuck on MJ

Here is the 1988 Grammys. Way you make me feel and Man in the Mirror.

SYTYCD

So I am just catching up on last week - Be aware - if you are a fan of SYTYCD on Facebook - they will totally tell you who gets kicked off on Friday which is REALLY ANNOYING. But back to last week.

My favourite was the Mandy Moore dance. I got teary (of course) and then felt better about it when the judges did too! I love that MM always does 80s style dances and music. It makes me happy.

And I like Philip. 

I also liked the crash test dummies and the bollywood dance. I leave this post to everyone to discuss this week as well since I will have to download it and will try to watch this weekend. 

Bizzare

So when I went to the store the other night, I needed milk and for some reason (possibly the tube strike) the only milk they had was whole milk and skimmed goat's milk. I bought the goat's milk. It is very weird to drink it really does taste like goat's cheese in liquid form. I am not sure I would buy it again. I don't know how it is going to taste on cereal.
