Listen and Learn

Feel good song of the day! “Leave Your Boyfriends Behind” by Leona Naess.

Let’s go out late, drink a lot, stay up past 8 and then dance. Dance all night.We’ll leave our boyfriends behind, leave your girlfriends behind

Without fail, I can listen to this song and want to grab my destiny by the balls and squeeze hard (that reference was for all you Party Down fans that are still lamenting the loss. Clearly, I’m not coping very well.)  Seriously though, now that I live in LA, whenever I travel to Sherman Oaks I just hope my day will turn into the Steve Guttenberg episode. So, I guess if you didn’t watch the show, this won’t make much sense. AND considering the  show got cancelled because of awful ratings you probably DIDN’T watch the show. And I’m rambling…because that’s what I do best. Just laugh at this.


Mustache House

Today’s blog is brought to you by the mustache.

Thanks to my sister, Lauren, and her affinity towards mustaches, I spent a good portion of my day yesterday learning facts about mustaches while listening to my neighbors across the street blast Nine Inch Nails (I would like it to be known that said neighbor is about 80 and uses a walker…and is apparently AWESOME).

So, anyway, Lauren usually likes to torture me by emailing pictures of all things I love in Boston. Case in point: Seriously?!?! I WANT TO GO TO THERE. 

Anyway, this particular day, the delightful “email ding” echoed in my kitchen as I was eating a Pb&J, listening to NIN (courtesy of rockin old dude neighbor) and working on my Happy Book Vol. 3 . I saw the subject of the email “Mustache House?” and immediately imagined…you guessed it….a house shaped like a mustache. Alas, this is what was caused my day to turn into “Spend far too much time reading facts and looking at pictures of people’s mustaches and laugh at clothing/mugs/salt &pepper shakers with mustache designs day.”

Really though, cheers to this mustache for making a house look like a dapper gentlemen that I would like to smoke cigars and discuss the stock market with. Did you know that the owner of the Oakland A’s baseball team paid each of his players $300 to grow a stache in 1971? When the A’s met the clean cut Reds in the 1972 World Series, it was dubbed the “Hair versus Square” Series by the media. Well now you know, thanks

Glorious . Plus, you can rock mustache bling bling whenever you want! If that doesn’t scream Valentine’s Day gift, then I just don’t know what does. Anywho, my rant about the mustache has come to an end. I’m trying to start a trivia team, so hopefully one day  I’ll get to impress everyone with my useless mustache knowledge. Yes, I am in fact a loser.

It’s Shark Week

Haaaappppppyyyyy SHARK WEEK everyone! Boy oh boy, it’s like Christmas in August! Here… watch this promo over and over. If it doesn’t get you pumped, then by golly you are just too high maintenance!  

Entertained? Pumped? Exploding with excitement?  Yeah, thought so. Plus, it’s fun for the whole family. My sister is so excited about shark week, she decided to get eaten by a shark. That’s what I call a true fan! Sharks for the win.
