So, I’ve been MIA for…awhile. A lot has been occuring here in Southern Girl Land. First, I’ve been working like a Hebrew slave. Yes, I’ve worked 2 jobs before, but for some reason, I now feel drained; a vacation is due soon…and by that I mean Movie Night for One at my house with Pop Secret and a glass (Who am I kidding? At least half of the bottle) of white wine. I really think it’s the fact that it takes longer than 20 minutes for me to get to work now. Before, I was going AGAINST traffic, which was a wonderful thing. Now, everyone goes to work the same way I do, and it definitely makes for a longer commute. Which means I have to get up earlier…but alas, I will not complain.
So, my girl Bey and hubby Hov finally had Blue Ivy. For the record, can I say that I really don’t like her name? I get that they were being sentimental, but what is Blue going to look like at 25 with people calling her “Blue”? I guess celebrities figure their kids will be celebrities, so it doesn’t matter what the name is. Can I just say that’s hogwash??? PLEASE when naming your children, think about what’s going to be on their resume.
And it’s officially election season. The Republican candidates have gone at it, there have been a few casualties, but the core group is still going at it. Admittedly, I have not been keeping up with the debates as I should. I’ll try to do better. I will say I’m intrigued by a few of the candidates…but not enough to jump ship. I have to think about me and my household and who has our best interest at heart.
I’m not sure where I was when I first found out about the show “Luther”, but whenever I was, it was the right place. Fine, gorgeous, extremely handsome and talented Idris Elba plays the title character John Luther. The show comes on BBC America and is one of the BEST shows I have ever seen. It’s right up there with SVU, and for those of you that know me personally know how I feel about SVU. I catch it On Demand, and I have to ask, where are the shows after Episode 5??? After I caught up with Seasons 1 and 2, I was ready to keep going, and there was nothing to go to. And speaking of shows, I discovered another show On Demand-“Girls Who Like Boys Who Like Boys”. Yes, if you read this twice, because people always get the same confused-let me slow this down and think about it-look on their face when I tell them the title, you guessed the show is about gay men and their best female friend. Not sure how I discovered this show, either, but I’m glad I did. I told my gay BF that we should totally be on that show, but he would have to move to DC. He said we should move to NYC and do it. Since neither one of us is willing to change our zip code (at least not to those cities), we missed our chance.
I had a great conversation with one of my best friends last night. I opened up to her in a way that I haven’t with others. Mainly because I’m the go-to person when my friends have issues. So it was very refreshing to share a side that not a lot of people get to see. And it was really amazing that we were able to reminisce about our college days and share a few laughs…and some things we didn’t know.
Well, those are my ramblings for today. Feel free to share some of your own. 🙂 Until next time, I’m just a Southern girl…in the city!
