It's time to say goodbye. Parting is such sweet sorrow. I'm over it. This whole blogging thing started fun, got labor intensive, became boring, was briefly resurrected, took too many forms, and now is just a damn chore. I'm going to rid the blogosphere of my thoughts and writings and leave it in more capable hands. So, keep on keeping on my friends who write about fashion mishaps (cough, cough), their babies and/or families, design/craft projects, and alter egos. You definitely keep me entertained. So thank you for that.

And so, farewell. Perhaps I'll make like the phoenix and rise again from these ashes but until then, you may as well delete this from your bookmarks. It's been real.

Follow through. Golfers want it. Baseball players teach it. I'm sure it's important to tennis players. As for those who are not physically active, it's pretty important too. Unfortunately, I don't have it. Not even close.

That being said, my new project was a bust. I was trying to switch over to Tumblr and write a blog entirely devoted to casting but after a few posts, I re-read my words, realized they were crap, and deleted everything. So much for follow through. So, its back here. More random thoughts and videos and pictures, griping, ranting, raving, joking, etc. You get the gist.

So how are you? Remember this? Well, I gots it. And I'm loving it. It's everything they said it would be and more. Also, remember this? Well, I'm going to start that again. Whether you like it or not.

domo arrigato.

New Projects

So...I'm working on a new project. One I hope to update more frequently than my previous attempts at writing about this subject. Stay tuned.

And keep checking back here. I'm sure I'll have thoughts to share soon.

Kissin' Cousins dear cousin M got married to Mr. V this weekend. It was a fabulous wedding. Beautiful bride. Glowing groom. Fantastic homily. All the right fixins for a solid start to marriage. Yours truly served as Maid of Honor and I fluffed that dress with such artistry and skill that I'm pretty sure I'm could teach a class. All in all, a truly wonderful weekend.

My various cousins returned home from their various places across the country and my brother and his fiancee were there and my parents were in rare form. Rare form. At one point, I'm pretty sure they were the only ones on the dance floor shaking and grooving to Neil Diamond. Oh yeah, did I mention my brother got engaged???!!! YEAH HERMANO!!! And, not to toot my own horn, but my MOH speech made everyone cry, myself included. Which is mortifying and I'm still recovering since I hate to cry in public but I will chalk it up as a victory. My mother said it was the highlight of her life so I got that going for me.

This post is so rambling and crazy, I'm not sure I should continue. So I won't. I will instead post some pictures as soon as I get them. Congrats again Mr. and Mrs. V!!!

4th of July

Party in the USA
Last year we had an impromptu 4th of July party. It was awesome. This year we planned one. And it was still awesome. I would post more pictures but I figure most of you are on the Facebook and you can see them for yourself. Here my friend Kit Kat and I are waving flags at the beer pong players below. I also consider it an awesome party because I only heard Miley Cyrus' Party in the USA once the whole night! No party fail here.

Here we get the guests to sing the Star Spangled Banner:

And finally, some masterful flag waving by yours truly:

Independence Day

Bravo America! Happy Birthday.

Outside my window, the Revolutionary War has resurfaced. Or someone is watching Mel Gibson's The Patriot at an obnoxiously high volume. Either way, the fireworks are making me feel just like Gibson's children who watch the smoke and fire make their way toward the house and then the corn parts and soldiers march through. It's kinda like Apocalypse Now meets Field of Dreams meets Yours, Mine and Ours. Kinda.

I must confess that this date fills me with a bit of sadness. The Fourth of July signifies the beginning of the end. Summer is in full swing, usually, and the fourth reminds us that it ends even quicker than it began. Soon it will be August and everyone will be preparing to return to whatever responsibilities wait for them or some people will be moving to new cities or onto new jobs or apartments but it's all downhill from here. And that, my friends, is not cool.

What is cool is: I had a fabulous time with my friends at the Farm, our annual Fourth of July party was a huge success, Animal is visiting this weekend, my cousin will be getting married in two weeks and in August I'll be hitting up DC and NYC for a holiday. Hmm...I may have to re-think my whole beginning of the end theory.

Why do some web pages have music that comes on automatically and at such a deafening level you forget what you are googling and shut the computer? And why is the application to shut off said music so dang hard to locate? Lately, I've had a whole list of why questions. I keeping adding them to the chalkboard in my room in the hopes that someday, I'll come home and they will all be magically answered.

I went to Target today to look for a swimsuit. I left Target with a movie, dental floss and facewash. I think I was suffering from Target Amnesia which means you go in with a plan, get all flustered by the bright lights and inviting red target sign and you forget what you came for in the first place. Then you are looking at your receipt where you spent way too much and realize you never even bought the thing you needed.

It doesn't really matter though because a week from now, I'll be sitting at the glorious Farm, reminiscing with old friends, and having a blast. See some of you very soon.
