Get off my internets…..

Picture it.. it’s a beautiful day.. you decide to peruse around the internet.. maybe you check the local news, maybe you are on Facebook.. etc. You know, just killing time. Then it happens… your eyeballs get assaulted with one of these over exposed ‘celebrities’ that show up on your Facebook Newsfeeds, televisions, or somewhere else on the internet all… of… the… time. If they pass gas, we hear about it. 

I’m not even going to post the photo of the first one, just because I refuse to subject myself to her face, or any other part of her body any more than I have been already. Well, come to think of it.. here is a fitting photo.

trash

Let’s call her K. KarTRASHian, shall we?  Because honestly that’s what she is. Trash. Made famous by a sex tape… and most recently showed her big, oiled up balloon butt to anyone who would look. She get’s a new hair color? Front page news… ugh. Enough already!! Plus, she wears fur.. so that’s just another of the long list of reasons I can’t stand her.

And while we are discussing K. KarTRASHian, let’s not forget her husband.

kanye

Although.. I am not a fan, I do love the new song he did with Paul McCartney and Rhianna. I didn’t want to like it.. I resisted as long as I could. It’s just so dang good… *sigh* It must be because of Paul and Rhianna. Yes! That must be it! Well, that’s my story anyway..  and I’m sticking to it. 😉

This next one might strike a nerve with some people because there’s a pretty clear defined line between those who love these people vs people like me.. who don’t want to see their pictures.. hear any ‘baby’ updates… where they’re going on vacation, what they are having for dinner.. the kind of toilet paper they use… what they think about xyz, and so on. I’d rather gouge my eye out with a rusty spork, than to hear anything else about them. I think they are whack jobs… almost cult-like and just creepy if you ask me. They straight up skeeve me out. *shudder*

The flipping Duggars!!! 

Duggars

Ugh.. these people need to realize it’s a uterus.. not a clown car. They just keep popping out little Stepford Wife acting, brainwashed kids one by one like it’s an assembly line. Granted, what they do and how they live their lives is their business, but I’m freaking tired of hearing about it. Just today, I guess their daughter, Jill Bob.. or whatever her name is, is in labor… any takers on a bet that she’s pregnant again before she leaves the hospital? I know, I know.. to each their own.. what business is it of mine if they reproduce like rabbits, popping out a gaggle of ‘smile plastered on their faces at all times’ children. None. It is none of my business, but like I said.. I don’t want to see it.. know about it.. etc. every. single. day.

PATIENCE IS NOT ONE OF MY VIRTUES

REVIEW OF ERIN CONDREN LIFE PLANNER

Could you describe the ruckus, sir?

The Breakfast Club

 

“We’re all pretty bizarre. Some of us are just better at hiding it, that’s all.”

“Does Barry Manilow know that you raid his wardrobe?

“Screws fall out all the time, the world is an imperfect place.”

Tonight is the night!! And it’s a night I never thought would come. I was born a little too late to catch it the first time around.. being it was rated R and I was only 6 at the time. I was probably more interested in Barbie’s at that age anyway. My love for this movie has spanned decades.. I know every line. To celebrate the 30th anniversary of The Breakfast Club, select theaters are reshowing the movie. I’m getting my chance! If my son wasn’t only 7, he would be going with me just so he could experience it. I did consider it…. 😉  I can’t imagine anyone ‘not’ liking this movie. John Hughes was a genius and his movies were all masterpieces as far as I’m concerned. Of course, I have my favorites and in my opinion some where better than others.. but overall, these coming of age stories are just as relevant and relatable today as they were when they were made. Who knew that a story about 5 kids stuck in Saturday detention could be this awesome?

Dear Mr. Vernon, we accept the fact that we had to sacrifice a whole Saturday in detention for whatever it was we did wrong. But we think you’re crazy to make an essay telling you who we think we are. You see us as you want to see us – in the simplest terms, in the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a brain…

…and an athlete

…and a basket case

…a princess

…and a criminal

Does that answer your question? Sincerely yours, the Breakfast Club.

Erin Condren Life Planner vs. The KIT Planner

Here it is.. I finally recorded my first official YouTube video, so please don’t be too harsh since I’m a newbie at this. (I’ll get better, I promise 😉 )

I tried a different planner for a couple of weeks.. yep, I only made it a couple of weeks… maybe not even that long before going back to my Erin Condren Life Planner aka ELCP. I’ll never stray again.. watch the video and you’ll see why. I’ll be doing a more in depth review of the ELCP at a later date… once I recover from the anxiety of doing this one. 😉

If you are interested in an Erin Condren Life Planner, you can save $10 off your first order by using this link and signing up for an account. CODE FOR $10 OFF After that, you’ll be sent a link with the coupon code. The code is only good for 30 days, I believe.. so don’t create your account until you are ready to order.

Under My Thumb by The Rolling Stones

rolling stones

Is there a song that you’ve heard a bazillion times.. even sang along, but never really listened to the lyrics.. or you listened, but you never really listened to them? Well, this happened to me with Under My Thumb, by The Rolling Stones. 

Let me start by saying that I LOVE.. LOVE.. LOVE The Rolling Stones. I still even love the song. I don’t think there is a Stones song that I don’t like. It’s just funny, because I found myself driving down the road, song turned up.. singing along and then all of the sudden I was like, “What the hell?” Maybe I’m the only one who, by 2015, hasn’t realized how sexist the lyrics are. Granted, it was a different time but it still shocked me, and then made me literally LOL.  

Like I said, I have heard this song all my life, own the CD.. sing along every time I hear it… and still will. In case you haven’t really listened to the words or like many, only belt out the chorus, then take a look at what I’m talking about.

“Under My Thumb”

Under my thumb
The girl who once had me down
Under my thumb
The girl who once pushed me around
It’s down to me
The difference in the clothes she wears
Down to me, the change has come,
She’s under my thumb
Ain’t it the truth babe?
Under my thumb
The squirmin’ dog who’s just had her day
Under my thumb
A girl who has just changed her ways
It’s down to me, yes it is
The way she does just what she’s told
Down to me, the change has come
She’s under my thumb
Ah, ah, say it’s alright
Under my thumb
A siamese cat of a girl
Under my thumb
She’s the sweetest, hmmm, pet in the world
It’s down to me
The way she talks when she’s spoken to
Down to me, the change has come,
She’s under my thumb
Ah, take it easy babe
Yeah
It’s down to me, oh yeah
The way she talks when she’s spoken to
Down to me, the change has come,
She’s under my thumb
Yeah, it feels alright
Under my thumb
Her eyes are just kept to herself
Under my thumb, well I
I can still look at someone else
It’s down to me, oh that’s what I said
The way she talks when she’s spoken to
Down to me, the change has come,
She’s under my thumb
Say, it’s alright.
Say it’s all…
Say it’s all…
Take it easy babe
Take it easy babe
Feels alright
Take it, take it easy babe.

I particularly like the, “The way she talks when she’s spoken to..” and “The way she does just what she’s told.” and “Her eyes are kept just to herself.. I can still look at someone else.”  

So now, you can click on the video below and sing along (like me) and realize it’s just a song. A great one.  😉 

WBW – The fashion…

rad

Oh, the fashion.. it was awful.. nothing like looking through old photos and cringing. There’s no denying it was fun though. Aqua Net, anyone? 

Umbro

Umbro shorts.. ok, so this was technically in the 90s, but it was early enough in the 90s that they still had some of that 80s flair. Yep, I had a pair.

jams

Seriously? What were we thinking. These pants were everywhere. The brighter the better. 

leotard

One word… LEOTARD.. Long before Ms. Fonda was scrutinized and all but drawn and quartered for treason across Facebook timelines, she was the workout queen. I remember my mother doing her Jane Fonda workouts. Leg warmers and leotards went together like mousse and bad perms.

LA Gear

I loved my LA Gear high tops. I wore them constantly.. I think I may have even worn them long after they started getting too small because I was afraid I might not get another pair. 

Fold-Over-Jeans-

I had forgotten all about fold over jeans! I had these too, but the flaps were striped or something.. I don’t really remember. Pleats were never flattering… adding flaps above the pleats was even less so. 

Rolled-Up-Jeans

Of course, no 80s ensemble was complete without the rolled up jeans. 

WBW – What was on television…

Before the modern convenience of DVRs and even VCRs.. people had to carefully plan their television viewing.  I’m sure my parents turned down social invitations on Dallas night. Psh, you didn’t miss Dallas. It just wasn’t going to happen. You had to make it a point to be in front of the television when your favorite show came on.. and the commercials.. you just had to suffer through them, no fast forward. 

These were some of the favorites around our house when I was a kid…

You can click each video to see the intro for the show. Memories….

Oh, and the commercials..
