Me = Slacker

It's a beautiful Saturday, I don't have much to do but sit and read whilst guilty myself slowly towards the gym. I haven't updated in a while so I thought I would now since I'd rather sit on my butt in front of my computer than walk my butt to the gym. There aren't many things going on but here is what is on my plate right now.


WTF is going on over there? I submitted an article in April which was supposed to run in June. I visit the site and I often get an error and the page won't load (and I'm not the only one to have noticed this).

When trying to pitch for future articles I was told the site was changing the way they receive content and they wouldn't be paying writers anymore. From what I hear there's only one editor working on the site right now, and it seems that they are allowing their contributors to upload content freely by signing into the site. I wonder what exactly is going on over there.

The Bulgarian Wedding
I keep having awful dreams that my dress is going to turn out awful. One dream it was a puke pink color and the next it was made of black lace. I go to my first fitting on the 15th of July and I'm hoping I won't be disappointed. With lace as beautiful as this however, I think it may be hard to be disappointed.

Birthdays Galore!
All of these Cancers! It's just a tad bit ridiculous that my entire family was born in the month of July....well, not my entire family but a whole mess of them. I'm going to be going to Tanya's birthday tonight, then George's birthday tomorrow. My mom's birthday is on the 10th, my grandmother's is on the 13th. All my other aunts were born in July as well, I just don't know the days. Either way, I'm going to be spending a lot of monies on gifts this month.

The Biggest Loser
I might be the biggest loser but it's not because I'm losing weight (In fact, I'm pretty sure Nanette is kicking my butt). For some reason I haven't been able to get to the gym as much as I would like to. I like to blame it on Janea, my gym buddy who decided to live in England for the past few months (bitch). The only reason I'm not really mad at her is she sends me gifts from abroad, including Cadbury chocolate (see , I told you it's her fault). BUT thanks to Fox (this is the only time I will ever thank fox for anything promise) and So you think you can dance, I've decided I want to start taking Dance classes again. I'm hoping to find an adult class where I won't feel like a total amateur. I miss leaping, doing pirouettes, tour jetes and attempting multiple fouettes. I just hope I don't hurt myself. Anyone want to join me?

Heidi has decided she wants to start her own blog. So with the help of Boyan and I she has begun her first literary adventure at Views From My Window. She said that by starting a blog, she hopes to bring better understanding of the life of a puppy living in Los Angeles. Obviously she takes after her mom.

I have a lot of postings that I want to write, so stay tuned--I think they'll be pretty interesting.

Happy one year

One year ago today, two very smart young people decided to get married in a criminal court.

Thank you for a great year darling.

I love you.

I'm an Action Hero

I'm covering Verizon's Action Hero campaign for iMedia's Creative Showcase. The site allows you to upload a picture of yourself and create your very own action movie with you as the star. Usually when sites render your image for animation it turns out looking completely bogus (yes, I used the word Bogus) but in Verizon's case it turned out freakishly true to life. I may look like an alien from Mars Attacks (you are supposed to use a picture where you aren't smiling) but besides that I think it looks a lot like me. What do you think?

The fact that the video was streaming automatically bugged the crap out of me.

Most people when asked have trouble defining Irony. Last night when trying to download a site using my broadband Verizon connection I got this screen:

That's ironic.

She may not be smart,

...but she ain't that stupid either. Yes, ladies and gents, Paris Hilton is finally going to jail. She was booked last night right after attending the MTV Movie Awards (apparently everyone clapped when Sarah Silverman mentioned she'd be going to jail...priceless.)

She knew she was going to have to take a mug shot (what was this her second? third time being booked?), she knew that everybody was going to see it and there was no way she was going to look like crap.

We all know that she really looks like this:

Thanks, LAist

Gee golly! I wish I had this talk when I was twelve-years-old.

Hiking in LA

When you think of Los Angeles, you don't imagine it to be a haven for outdoor sports and activities. But truth be told the great thing about Southern California, is that you have the mountains, the beach and the desert just a short distance away from home base.

Los Angeles in particular lies between a series of mountains that make for some picturesque hiking.

Jurgen, Boyan and I went hiking last Friday in the Santa Monica mountains, and enjoyed it so much we decided to make it a weekly ritual.

I Heart BBC America

Besides the fact that I get to wake up to pre-recorded BBC News every morning, they air some of my favorite shows such as Cash in the Attic, Absolutely Fabulous, Clatterford, Robin Hood and now my new latest obsession, Hex.

I happened to catch Hex after watching the season finale of Robin Hood (they plan these things this way to get people like me hooked, obviously it works).

The show describes itself as a mix of "Voodoo rituals, fallen angels, lesbian ghosts and evil fairies." I would describe it as a mix of Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Charmed but a whole lot sexier and minus the cheese factor.

Who knows maybe it's because there is nothing on TV during the summer, or maybe it's because actors sound better when they have English accents--whatever it is I'm hooked.

So far they've had a witch conceive the child of a fallen angel, a lesbian ghost, a kick-ass (anne rice-esque) immortal witch and a slutty school girl sleeping with a demon disguised as a Priest (who happens to be Mulch from Robin Hood)...AND it shows on Saturday. Seriously people, could you ask for anything more?

"Some girls are covered in diamonds,

Some girls are covered in poils..."

Right now I'm covered in puppy hair but that's beside the point.

I am now, officially on my way to a wedding in Bulgaria. Last week we bought plane tickets and today my mother and I went on the hunt for the perfect fabric for my wedding dress.

The hunt led us to Fabric Land in Orange where we picked up Vanilla dream satin, a champagne colored sash and last but definitely not least French imported double stitched cream lace.

I'm in heaven.

Next weekend I go in to get measured and to work out the details with my seamstress.

Besides that I'm looking for venues for next year. Below are the ones I'm planning on making field trips to:

Padua Theatre in Claremont
Kindred Garden Community Church in Anaheim
Oak Meadows in Temecula

So hopefully if all things go right I'll be covered in French Lace in September and smelling of vodka. I can't wait.
