And not in a cool way. I’ve had a severe headache for the past THREE days. Yeah, I’m serious. Some would call that a migraine; some would be concerned about meningitis; others would be so dramatic as to think brain tumor (me) but no…just a tension headache (Thanks, doc.) I’m twenty-three…what the hell is so tense in my life that I can’t move my eyeballs and must stay in a horizontal position for three days?? Maybe I’ve been trying too hard to poop a gold bar ;)
Aaaaaanyways…I’ve had a lot of spare time on my hands while I try to recuperate, so you’d think I would have been a blogging machine but it’s actually rather difficult to look at the computer screen for too long. Go figs, huh? I’ve done a lot of thinking and TV-watching though, with just a little bit of online lusting thrown in. So basically, here’s a recap of my past seventy-two hours:
- Thanks to cupcakesandcashmere, I decided I’m going to get a calgel manicure. I have mixed feelings about a manicure that lasts for 3-4 weeks, but think it sounds cool enough to try at least once. I may even get crazy and go with Hello Kitty themed nails (JK…kinda).
- I watched a LOT of QUALITY television. The most impactful (read: disturbing) shows were definitely the Thursday episode of So You Think You Can Dance and this week’s Toddlers and Tiaras. On SYTYCD, they debuted Justin Bieber’s “Somebody to Love” music video featuring Usher. There were SO MANY THINGS WRONG with this video that I don’t even know where to start. I mean, I’m pretty sure this kid is 7 years old and just singing about a stuffed animal, so there’s obviously some disconnect between his and Usher’s motives, but that doesn’t totally explain the ginormous amount of awkward scenes and mixed messages in the vid. For instance, it opens with a 30+ woman stroking 7 yr. old Bieber, and then – no wait – I can’t do this right now. I just rewatched the video and this deserves it’s own post. More to follow later on the Biebs. As for Toddlers and Tiaras (one of my all-time-favorite-shows), this week was nothing short of horrific: from the mother that taught her 6 year old daughter to “luxuriate” across the stage, to the male judge named “Big Daddy” (or was it Big Poppa??), to the pageant director that skipped out with the money and no one really did anything about it…this episode just took the cake. And the previews for next week look even more twisted and Southern than ever!! YESSSSsssssss.
- Obviously my sick time wouldn’t have been complete if I didn’t do some online window shopping to make myself feel inadequate. This is what I dug up:
Thanks Cynthia Rowley. You’re awesome, and I’m poor.
Those can all be found on Forward by Revolve.
hahahaha This is why Mary-Kate is awesome. And so is Olsens Anonymous.
Ummm, and that’s all I have the energy for right now. But stay tuned for that Justin Bieber video playbyplay. I promise it will be awkward.
