It’s hump day!

That commercial never gets old. NEVER! I die every single time it comes on!

Yep, it’s hump day AND it’s the day I remember I have a blog! Oh, hey there! it’s not that I’ve forgotten about you. I’ve just been busy. The bf’s brother came into town for a couple of days and we went to a NASCAR race. Yep. Forreal. I’ll tell you all about it. Spoiler alert-It was actually fun! I’ve also been working a lot and for the last couple of days, I’ve been braiding my hair. It usually doesn’t take me this long to braid. Maybe 12 hours split over two days. But this time I’ve made them pretty small and I’ve had activities that have forced me out of the house. I have about 3 sections left in the back. *sigh* I HOPE to be done today? Hope.



I just finished Neil Gaiman’s latest book, The Ocean at the End of the Lane. It’s a short read and filled with magic, fantasy, and a bit of horror. Enchanting! I couldn’t put it down! 4/5 stars to you Mr. Gaiman.  Currently reading Octavia Butler’s sci fi, “Wild Seed”. My first sci-fi novel. My online book club is reading it this month and discussing it in a couple of days. Which means I should probably finish it!


hair today

I cut my hair this weekend! On Friday night I took out my kinky twists, planning on re-twisting on Saturday. On Saturday, I didn’t feel like twisting. I just wanted it short. I only cut about 4 inches off my natural hair, but 4 inches is a huge difference!

I love it. I’m still getting used to it, but I love it! I’ve never worn my natural hair out like this before.  Today my co-workers will see it for the first time. Wonder what they will think…


I had a great Valentine’s Day with my sweetie. He got me tons of chocolate…seriously, TONS. It will take me about 3 weeks to eat all of this chocolate and I am a chocolate fiend! We didn’t do anything out of the ordinary. We cleaned the entire apartment, played some video games, popped open a yummy bottle of wine he bought for me from Germany last fall, and finished Season 1 of Dexter. WOAH! That season was WAY intense. I loved it and am so glad i finally decided to watch it after years of saying, “naaaaah, I won’t like it”. But Dexter will always be gay David Fisher to me!

We’re starting season 2 tomorrow (no spoilers please!). Tomorrow is also 6 months for us! He planned on us celebrating with a fancy schmancy Italian dinner, but I am delaying it. Tomorrow I start the process of braiding my hair and I definitely won’t be finished by tomorrow evening. Perhaps by Wednesday or Thursday. I’ll post pics of my progress.

Oh and ch-ch-changes! If you’re a somewhat longtime reader, you know I dabble in things that some may refer to as geeky, but I refer to as FUCKING AWESOME. World of warcraft, comics, graphic novels, video games-that kind of stuff. Well, I don’t want to turn this into a niche blog, but I’m going to start posting about some of those things a lot more. Hope you don’t mind and if you do, I DON’T CARE!

So, what did you do for Valentine’s Day? Did anyone eat more chocolate than I did? Probably not :P
