I was reading an article the other day that explained this weird way in which the world is connected. How millions of people who share no cultural background, language or history, have this one thing that ties them. Us. It's not technology, the internet or McDonalds. It's not Walmart, Starbucks or cancer. It's not global warming, Twilight or the iPhone. No, it's the word 'huh'. Yep, huh. And frankly it's not even a proper word! But according to this article, more people around the world from different countries, backgrounds and languages understand the word 'huh' and it's meaning, more than any other word in any other country's dictionary. This kind of boggles my mind! It's good I suppose, that us earthlings can all communicate on this basic level. BUT let's not abuse it please! There are certain times when 'huh' doesn't cut it. There's a woman who ...

I have a big news today. I've made a decision that could change my life in so many ways. To be honest I'm pretty nervous about it but I think that if I don't just jump in and do it today, I'll never have the balls. So today, at 2pm, I am dyeing my hair blond. Now I know that there are some listeners out there going "so?" But I also know that there are others, my fellow proud brunettes going "NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!" and to those folks, my fellow sisters in brown I say "fear not, I am still a proud brunette, I'm just gonna check out the other side of the tracks for a little while, live on the wild side, see what all the fuss is about. I'll always be a brunette and can go back to it anytime I like!" I guess the main reason I'm ...
This Really Hurts

Yesterday was sitting number two for my latest piece of art work on my body, aka my new tattoo. I was hoping it would be completed but it looks like I'll need at least one or two more sittings. And damn. That really sucks because remember last week when I told you that I had gone in to some type of zone where I just laid there and the pain was sort of a good pain? Well that is a giant load of bullcrap. Yesterday was the worst day of tattooing I've ever experienced. It wasn't my tattoo artist's fault at all as he has a very soft touch but it was because my tattoo design goes all up into my arm pit. Honestly, there were points yesterday when I swore out loud and almost jumped up out of my seat. It hurt so effing much I had ...
Weird Family Traditions

The other day I was at Black Sheep Lodge having a beer with some friends. It was during the UT game so it was busy and we had to ask a couple if we could share their table. They kindly obliged and ended up being really cool. I'm not sure how we got into this conversation but we started talking about holidays and family traditions. The girl at our table had the funniest story about Easter. Apparently at her house, after the kids had gone on their traditional Easter egg hunt, they had to hide beers for their parents to find in the back garden. Genius! That sounds like it makes Easter awesome! I think I may just adopt that for my new Easter tradition.
TV on the DL

It has finally happened. I have joined an exclusive club. I am part of movement, an idea, a fraternal order of which I am terribly proud. I am now officially into Breaking Bad. I know, I know, you’re wondering why on earth I didn’t watch it when it was actually on TV? And you’re thinking, “that’s crazy! You know the show just ended and you know what happened!” But it’s ok! I’m enjoying it, even though I know it ends soon. And it will end soon for me, as I’m on the final season. It’s been so fun watching 4 or 5 episodes at once, it’s like I’m binge drinking Breaking Bad! And I’m sorry I kept it from you, but I wasn’t sure I’d like it! But I do. This is damn good TV.
