10 Things That Made Me Happy This Week

Some of these won't apply to you, but #10 applies to us all as human beings.

10.) Nicolas Cage as Miley Cyrus in the "Wrecking Ball" video



Kim sent this to me and I have no idea what to make of it. I can't stand Miley Cyrus and wish she'd disappear. However... this. This. Jesus.

9.) The new Washed Out album, "Paracosm."

It's a gorgeous experience. I don't think I like it as much as "Within and Without," but I definitely am enjoying it. This is, in my opinion, the best track- "All I Know." It's like a less bombastic sequel to "Amor Fati."


Ernest Greene is such a talented guy. He makes music from a genuine place, and I appreciate that.

8.) I'm writing a lot again.

I'm almost done with a short story and I started this blog, which has been incredibly therapeutic  Every time I have written something, I have felt a lot calmer. Except the one entitled "Her." That one hurt. 

7.) Getting in back touch with old friends.

I've seen a lot of people I haven't seen in ages, and I've started talking to some people again who I really missed. I like getting back in touch with people. To realize they still care, it's incredibly sweet and affirming.

6.) "Portlandia."



When does this show start again?!?!?

5.) Fiona Apple on a Chipotle ad About Sustainable Farming



Okay: This also scurred me. 

4.) The Fact My Coworkers Care About Me

Seriously: I see these people everyday, and they genuinely do care. I have certainly not always been that fortunate.

3.) Working Out.

I only started, to be honest, because I was scared I let myself go. But, besides my more shallow reasons, I don't have any plans to stop because exercising does really make you feel better.

2.) This article.

It's worth a read. I was kind of bummed today until I took it into consideration.

1.) Guinea Pigs.



Having an animal (or animals) around is definitely a comfort, even if they do poop ... a lot.


I hope things are going well for you, anonymous Internet visitor.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

Give JR a Break

Recently, I've been reading some sites that have criticized James Roday, the lead actor on the USA show PSYCH for an apparent weight gain. But you know what? Who gives a flying fizzle stick if James Roday is slightly larger than he was 4 years ago. Apparently, it wasn't enough to scare away his current girlfriend/ co-star Maggie Lawson. (Who is one hell of a Catch!) And NO they are not engaged. That seems to be nothing more than a rumor, but there is a very high chance of it happening in the near future. Anyway, as long as PSYCH continues to entertain I don't mind about James Roday's waist. He, and Dule Hill, and Corbin Bernson too, can eat all the fried broccoli they want. The last episode of PSYCH wasn't so smashing, but I don't blame it on dietary issues. QATFYG: Are you keeping up with Psych? And who is hotter, James Roday or Maggie Lawson? (Trick Question but idk why) PS: If you have heard any more news on Roday and Lawson becoming Roday-Lawson, send it

Appropriate Holiday Gift Ideas for the Single Lady

While some people may see it as a drag, there are plenty of benefits to being single during the holiday season. During this time of the year, there are tons of parties you can attend that you may not have had the opportunity to if you were in a relationship. There’s also not as much stress on you as a single gal during the holidays because you don’t have to shop for your partner and extended family members  or  stress over where to eat Christmas dinner.  Not everyone sees the bright side of being fancy free during the holidays, and, tragically, they aren't afraid to let us single ladies know. Not only are single women subjected to even more harassment and ridicule during the holiday season, they’re also given the most obnoxious gifts by those who can’t comprehend how anyone can be both happy and single. Whether it’s a self-help book (desperately) trying to reinforce how great is to be single or the gift of a year-long subscription to Match.com , single women are presented with
