6 down

I have been beyond busy working on this new account, I have not had time to update my blog. Sorry! I have one more week (and it's short at that) after this week. MI is getting to me. I'm trying not to be too cranky, but I can only be so nice for so much longer. I think I need some drinks! Sangria tonight? Hmmm...

Can we talk about how much I love this woman?

She is just fucking hilarious! But after asking a few coworkers (mostly straight females), the majority seemed to not liker her. Is it only a gay thing? I don't know but I think she's fuckin' funny. I just love how she rips on everyone and is so blunt about it. Her obsession w/ Clay Gaykin is to die for (though we call him Gay just know he's a big 'ol homo); and she hates Renee Zellweger too! May I quote her? She said that Renee looks like a puffy sweaty coke whore! Yes! I've become addicted to her show on Bravo. I must see her next time she's in Chicago (her home town fyi).

So while here in Troy, I've met some lovely people who work here. One in particular needs to come to Chicago already (alas she isn't...T-dog I expect a visit soon). She (aka Tracy), like me, loves trashy 80s/early 90s music (she must be a gay man trapped inside a woman's body). Anyhoo her friend, whom I will meet soon asked her to ask me if I used to like Guys Next Door....HELLO! I loved them! They were a knock-off New Kids but we don't care. They were awful! Just look @ them:

So I started watching Footballers Wive$. I've only seen four episodes, but already I am in lust:

His name is Cristian Solimeno and Jesus is he sexy! Holy balls! Grrr! He's super beefaroni. I can't wait to see more of him. Let me have a moment to myself. I think it's the big schnoze, cockiness, etc. that just gets me all moist in the panties.

Anyoo I apologize for the lack of updates, but I have one week left like I said. Hopefully I can resume normal blogging once I am back in Chicago. BTW Fangoria tickets go on sale this Saturday!!! 'Til we meet again. Take care everyone :)

Just another day

Hello again. Well after an extended weekend home, I am back in Troy. Man was I exhausted yesterday! I had to be up by 4:30am to get to the airport on time for a 7:30am flight. I came back to the apartment last night and crashed! But I did sneak in an episode of Rebelde. Our anniversary weekend was lovely. We ended up having dinner at Café Bolero, and just spending time together. It was so nice. Back to reality...I'm here...again.

FYI...just found out the Fangoria show was moved to SUNDAY OCT 16 and not Sat. the 15th as previously announced. I was told the ticekts go on sale September 3! Woo hoo! So who's coming?

Today is Belinda Carlisle's birthday! Let us celebrate! I will listen to my Babe-mix on my ipod :)

Have you seen this man? Holy balls is he hot???

Rob was going on and on about how hot this guy was so I had to see for myself. His name is Kaysar Ridha and he is drop dead gorgeous! He is a contestant on Big Brother 6 (USA). Check out this page for more of this man hunk!

So a couple of people were asking about Byte...

Out of curiosity I asked my mom to pick this up for me on her recent excursion to Mexico...I can't get enough of it! They are a dance duo from Mexico City and their first album is a collection of covers of rock en español songs from the 80s. They've covered Caifanes, Soda Stereo, Enanitos Verdes, Duncan Dhu, Nacha Pop, etc.. In my former life I was a hardcore rockero and a rock en español snob. But I have to say I really like the way they did them. I think my favorite has to be their cover of Lucha de gigantes or Nada personal. While my Milwaukee Sister can't get enough of the new Belanova (I like it too)...I am just digging Byte more right now. Their next album will be all original material. So if you want some fun upbeat music, check it out.

Well I should get going. I actually got here early today (my coworkers were going to a titty bar last night so I was advised to take a cab) I figured I would blog! Have a good one everybody!!!!

While I am still disheartened about having to stay 3 extra weeks, I am feeling a bit chipper today. Probably because I get to go home! With that being said, I thought I'd actually do a proper entry today. First things first...

I got world from Radio Arte that the show is finally confirmed for Fangoria on Saturday, October 15! They are playing at the Metro and the opening act will be Sara Valenzuela (no relation to me); some of you may know her as the former lead singer of La Dosis. Her solo album has just been released in the US so I will be checking it out before the show as La Dosis were one of my fave acts. Anyhoo tickets are $41 (I know pricey) but trust me Fangoria are soooooo worth it. It's very rare they do a US date. I can't wait to see them again!!!!

So the other day at the airpot I decided to buy a book so I can read it on the plane. Magazines don't do because I usually read those w/in 5 minutes of purchasing them. I picked up the trashiest one I could find (sans the romance novels). It's from Candace Bushnell (Sex & The City, etc.) and is entitled Trading Up. So far so good. Anyone have any other good recommendations??

Remember him?

Did I have a crush on him! The him in question is Steve Guttenberg. The other morning when I was getting ready for work there was some awful Olsen Twin movie on and he played their dad. Yummy! Apparently he has a blog. Not sure if it's real or a phony one. I read a bit and all he seems to do is complain about not getting any shows on the PAX network. Eeew would anyone really want to be on PAX?

Since the corporate condos have cable I've been getting my fill while here. Again in the morning on tbs they are showing this:

While not as zaney as it's predecesor, it's still just as addictive. Come on they were in college and A.C. Slater was still on the wrestling team! This morning's episode alone had Mario López in a wrestling outfit at least 3 scenes!

This weekend is our anniversary weekend. Two years of bliss, love, and utter happiness. Don't think we're perfect now. Sure we get on one another's nerves from time to time, but it's so worth it whenever I look into Rob's eyes. Sigh. Have a good one everyone!
