Earworm: Dua Lipa's Future Nostalgia

Monday, May 17, 2021

 How have I not written about an album that has gotten me through a lot of the last year of life on this planet? It came out a couple weeks into quarantine and it has been in constant rotation ever since. Truly, 11 tracks, no skips.

Finally Got Curly Hair Shampoo and it's a Game Changer For Me

Friday, May 14, 2021

 So, I have been in a battle with how to take care of my hair since it's been growing on my head. My hair likes to poof. When I brush it with a flat brush it would poof. Tried a wet brush, it would poof as soon as my hair would dry. Brush while it was still wet, still poof. My hair is super thick, like I shed so much but I don't have bald spots thick. Got the shampoo and conditioner for thick hair. Marginal improvements.

But, my hair has natural waves in them and when I was born my parents thought I would get the Irish curls. Such a blessing because I barely have the patience to brush my hair out now, and just imagining Irish curls is making me frustrated. I digress. My sister suggested getting shampoo and conditioner for curly hair because of the waves and thickness it would be better to just go all in on curly. 

So, last week was finally the time to get new bottles and thank god I listened to her. It's only been couple of washes (I can't wash my hair everyday otherwise it will dry out), and there's already a major difference. My waves are more prominent and my hair doesn't poof. I also got a round brush and that is also an improvement. I don't feel like I'm fighting my hair anymore. 

Most importantly, my hair looks fucking great.

 This is one of those songs that I put on when I need to chill, and if I could whistle I would whistle along.

COVID Can't Catch Me Now

Saturday, May 1, 2021

 I got my second dose of the vaccine today! So in two weeks once the juices settle, I'm fully protected.

I'm sure it'd feel better if I was a party girl, but I'm not a party girl. I'm a stay home and watch television and movies girl. Or a book girl. I do need to get back to back to reading, I've got a couple chapters left and I actually want to meet by reading challenge this year because I actually have a reasonable goal to hit and I'm falling behind. 

Anyways, woo-hoo!

I Miss My Music Box

Monday, April 26, 2021

My record player is amazing, because it's not just a record player. There's a CD player, a cassette deck, the radio, and bluetooth to play music from. All right there in that beautiful box.

I love playing my record collection on it. I've got Carole King's Tapestry, Fleetwood Mac's Rumours, Paramore's After Laughter, Little Mix's Glory Days, Guardians of the Galaxy Awesome Mix Vol. I. And many more. The albums that have no skips, can listen straight through and not having to constantly find the next track. 

When I play music from my music box, that is the only thing that I'm doing. I'm not reading a book or farting around on my phone. I am comfy and cozy, just listening to the music. To be able to just shut down like that, I can't do that when I'm playing music from my phone. It only happens with my record player, even if it's not a record and I'm just using the bluetooth to play from my phone. The music needs to be coming from my music box. 

Clips That Bring Me Joy, Vol. IV

These clips bring me joy, and maybe they can bring you some joy, too.

Earworm: Taylor Swifts' Fearless (Taylor's Version)

Saturday, April 10, 2021

 So the first of Taylor Swift's re-recorded albums has arrived, and I've got to say I'm excited about it. Fearless was a great album to begin with, so whatever the results of this experiment/getting back what's hers wouldn't be bad. But I was surprised at the result of Taylor's Version

Got My First Vaccine Dose!

 I got my first dose of the COVID vaccine this morning! (I got Pfizer.)

As soon as New York City lowered the age restriction from 30 to 16 on Tuesday, I was on the vaccine finder, trying to find an appointment for my first dose. And none were available. Every day I would check the vaccine finder and the Walgreen's app to find somewhere to get the shot. And then yesterday afternoon, a miracle happened. An appointment opened up at 9:35 the next morning. Victory! Now I'm not the only person in my immediate family to not get their first shot.

Should I Root for the Mets This Year?

Thursday, April 1, 2021

 Baseball is back, baby! But the Mets' game was postponed thanks to the Washington Nationals having COVID issues, so boo.

My question is, should I root for them? Last year when I started getting back into baseball during the postseason, I needed a team to root for and I chose the Dodgers. That turned out well for me. I like that team and they're fun to watch. I've heard there's hope this year for the Mets. We finally have an owner willing to spend money and make stuff happen. But I don't know. 

I'm gonna try to pay attention to the regular season this year and watch some games. We'll see where I land for my Mets or Dodgers fandom.

I Have Found My Spice Level and it's Popeye's Spicy Chicken

Monday, March 15, 2021

My spice and heat tolerance is about as low as can be. Just the hint of spice and heat, and it can turn my mouth into a fire pit. But, I've finally found a spicy food where I can actually enjoy the spice without experiencing pain and it is Popeye's spicy chicken.

Usually, I get mild. And then one day I was given spicy by mistake and did not notice until my first bite.  That was a surprise to my taste buds. But my mouth didn't turn to fire and tears weren't streaming down my face, so I carried on eating. And I liked it. When I was finished eating, I didn't feel the need to nearly drown myself with water or soda. I could just calmly carry on sipping my Coke and enjoy the flavor of the spice. 

I will not be going any higher on the Scoville scale, because that would surely end in the loss of my tongue.
