AND WITHOUT FURTHER MALARKEY: WE BRING YOU THE FIRST POST FROM MY FAVE NEW CONTRIBUTING BOSTONIAN!
The Celtics’ UNFAIR/TRAGIC/GROSS loss to the Lakers tonight pushed me into a dark depression, the kind of which can only be cured by: blogging about summer.
The hottest season begins on June 21st, and besides gettin’ ready to release a new album (!!!!), I am super pumped for a few things.
June 13th- THE BLOOD IS TRUE.
My favorite show, True Blood, is coming back to our televisions this summer! That means more suspense, more sex, more… Skarsgard…
and I mustn’t forget the two foxy fellas next to him…
Btw… they now have the “True Blood’ official drink for sale. http://www.trubeverage.com/ I wanna try. Do you?
June 11-South Africa vs. Mexico kick starts the 2010 FIFA World Cup in S.A.
Soccer is the most beloved sport in the world, which may be reason enough to call it “The Beautiful Game”. Watching a variety of cultures come together bonding over a common “goal ;)” will be surely spectacular. It’s hard to believe four years have passed since the last World Cup! I am FULLY, HIGH-KEY jealous of anyone who will be in S.A. during these monumental festivities. GO USA
White nail polish/ Bright nail polish:
I feel icky when I don’t have my nails and toes done, and this summer is the perfect time to have fun with colors and BRIGHT whites.
Nothing else seals the deal on a sexy outfit like a fresh bold mani-pedi.
Y.A.S. (Yoga and Spinning)
Like a lot of people, I am trying to get in tip-top shape for the summmmaaaa. I switch up workouts whenever I can to keep things interesting, (i.e. not fall asleep on the elliptical machine) so I am going to try to include this in my regiment. YAS (Yoga and Spinning) is essentially an hour and a half of torture, broken up into two (somewhat-less-torturous) 45 minute sessions: 1st spinning, then yoga. The intense unforgiving 45 minutes on the stationary bike may or may not leave you BEGGING for someone to give you a mat so you can contort your body into a pretzel, anything to get your mind off the pain from spinning. At least, that was my experience the three times I’ve taken a class there in Venice, CA. Now that I am a bit more fit though, I WILL be testing my prowess yet again. I WILLLLL CONQUER YOU Y.A.S!
Tanning on the beach:
Giving up my membership to the tanning salon will surely cause me some separation anxiety, however, I must save my skin, and be kind to my wallet. Since I will be spending a majority of my summer in SoCal, I’ve decided that it is silly and dumb to bake in a tanning bed. Instead, I’ll wake up a bit earlier, slap on some s.p.f. and head to the beach to walk, clear my head, write, relax, and soak up the sun; naturally. What a novel idea. If you have access, I encourage you to do the same. I think it’ll do us all good;mind, body, and soul 🙂
So… I’ve gotta know: WHAT’S SWEETENING YOUR COFFEE/ FLIPPING YOUR SWITCH/ TUCKING YOU IN AT NIGHT/ TURNING THAT FROWN UPSIDEDOWN/ BUTTERING YOUR MUFFIN THIS SUMMER?
