{March 4, 2014}   Scandal: Ride, Sally, Ride

Despite the constant Twitter reminders and countdowns, I completely spaced on the fact that there was a brand new Scandal released.

Kerry Washington

And to top it all off, I wasn’t very psyched to watch it because one of my besties said that it was boring and that she fell asleep watching it.

Yeah, she must have really been sleepy because it was good.

If you haven’t seen it yet, you can watch the latest tv series episodes on or find them on abc online episodes.



So much happened on Scandals latest episode.

That heifer Sally decided to continue her run for President against Fitz even though she killed her husband at the end of last season.

How’d she get away with that, you ask?

One word: Cyrus.

Need I say more.

I never really trust “Super” Christians.

She has herself convinced that “the devil made her do it”.

Oh, no, boo-boo, the devil may have whispered it in your ear but the act of killing was all you.

And did I mention that she is running against Fitz while still maintaining her position and power as the Vice-POTUS.

And Kerry Washington’s character, Olivia… yeah, her Dear Ol’ Dad pretty much declared war on her if she stays with the President.

“…and the greatest weapon I could use against him calls me ‘dad’.”

Can you get any clearer (or menacing) than that?

Speaking of the President…I still cannot express to you enough how much I actively dislike him.

Seriously, he threw his glass at Cyrus.

And picking a running mate that was “loyal” to him…yeah, right.

He picked a carbon copied, selfish playboy mirror image of himself.

The one thing Sally got right was calling him out on being a man-child.

Taking the reigns that Fitz has once again dropped in his self-destructive pursuit of Olivia, my girl Mellie once again pushed her pride aside and sat down with a public meal with her once best friend Olivia.

I admire how Mellie keeps it all together even though we know in her heart of hearts she really just wants to shank a bitch. LMFAO.

She point blank tells Olivia that she has to get herself a beau because she has screwed up by well, screwing her hubby.

Speaking of screwing, Cyrus’ husband is hell bent on screwing him over.

I, for one, saw that coming when Cyrus threatened to take the baby if he ever leaves him.

Now he is working with David to bring down pretty much the whole team.

Speaking of working against, our Baby Huck Quinn is slipping further and further down the rabbit hole working hard to earn a place in B16.

But despite what others say, I think she’s just trying to earn Olivia’s trust back by going where the others dare not go.

There was so much going on in this episode that I am probably going to have watch it again before this week’s.

Let me know if I missed any salient points.

Scandal on!

{July 20, 2013}   Feeling accomplished

I am feeling so accomplished this week.

I got some things knocked off my to-do list while also continuing on my New Years Resolutions.

I finally signed up for a course that I have been meaning to sign up to take since February.

I have been going strong on getting my blogs up-to-date. Oh, I know that you can’t see much difference but, believe me, there is so much more to running your own blog than simply writing a post. Trust me on this one.

I have also been maintaining my gym activities. Yep, this original coach potato has been going to the gym at least 3 – 4 times per week. And sometimes I am there for 3 hours!!!! I know, gasp, right…

And I have stuck studying my scopist training back into the midst.

Woot! Woot!

I cringe to think how far I should really be by now.


I. Cringe.

And in the midst of all this, I still manage to maintain my stellar C parenting.

Well, C- being as it is summer and all. Lol.

So, yeah, I rock this week…

Stay tuned for next week though.

Will I pick it up or totally slack off!

One can never tell with me.

{July 17, 2013}   Getting back into blogging
English: Blogs on JoopeA

I am finally working on my blogs seriously for the first time in a long time.

For one thing, I missed the money! Lol.

But another is that I miss being able to express myself and connecting with people who may (or may not) share the same interests or philosophies.

One thing that I noticed that with the amount of blogs that I had (over 7 at one point, each dedicated to something specific), I tended to burn out.

So, as some of my domains expire, I am just allowing the to retire and merge all of the info into this blog.

Sorta making this blog a “catch-all” .

This should simplify my life immensely.

Thus far, I have cut down my blogs to just 4 although I am still debating cutting down to just 2, this blog and Voucherlist.

I am seriously considering just letting Amablogger go.

Its a conumdrum though as it was such a labor of love when I first started it but now I hardly ever write anything on there.

On the other hand, it is a nice resource to quickly find what I am looking for…

What to do. What to do.

I’ll be making a decision on Amablogger sooner rather than later as the domain expires in little over a month.


Really nothing else to report as far as blogging goes, especially as I have been mostly MIA for months.

But that is about to come to an end…

{June 24, 2013}   Its almost fun at the YMCA

I am finally tackling my 2013 New Years Resolution to get into better shape.

Frankly, I am out of excuses being as the just opened a YMCA down the street from my house.

It opened the last week of May and I have been going faithfully to workout.

Ok, almost faithfully.

So, this is how my thought processes have gone over the past few weeks.

Prepared to be amazed!


Started out just sitting on the bike for an hour, cruising and watching some tv.

It was like being at home but with cable.

Then I added some strength machine in there.

Mostly the ab machine being as that is my problem area.

Oh, but wait! What’s that I am seeing.

Are my arms starting the jiggle.

Oh, no, can’t have that.

Let’s throw in some arm exercises.

Hm, my legs are in pretty good shape but I’ll try out the leg presses.

Ok, so my legs are not in as good a shape as I think.

And yeah, now I remember that I wanted to work on my booty.

Lets go gluts!!

What’s that, my friend?

Zumba sounds like fun.

Ok, let’s Zumba!

Ooo, what’s this FitQuest and ActivTrax thingy that everyone else has?

Is that better than just randomly going from machine to machine?

It is…

Well, sign me up!

Hm, what kind of body do I want?

What is my ultimate goal?

Well, if I can’t have a big booty and big ol’ boobies then I’ll shoot for toned and muscled.

Gorgeous abs.

Muscular arms.

High, firm booty and boobies.

Somewhere in between skinny chick and body builder would be just fine.

Not this body.

But my overall goal is to go into my 40s (July 11, 2014) with a better body than even the one that I had in my 20s.

I must say that I have fallen woefully behind on my Upper East Side shenanigans

Gossip Girl Season 4

But since subscribing to Netflix, I have been womanfully attempting to catch up.

Starting with Season 1, Episode 1, I am now up caught up to Blair’s engagement to the Prince of Monocco.

Since I never watch regaular television any more,  I wasn’t even aware that this was to be the last season of Gossip Girl.

So, I was completely blindsided when my friend Jeanette let the beans spill that the series finale revealed that Gossip Girl is…

….wait for it…..

….total spoiler alert here…..

Dan Humphrey

Frankly, I knew it had to be one of the main characters of the show although I didn’t really rule out anyone.

I figured that when it was finally revealed, the writers would have to ignore any and all inconsistencies and plot holes.

What I didn’t like was that Lily and Rufus did not end up together.

And even worse, I hated that Lily ended up with William Van Der Woosen.


But I guess that I will have to get caught up to see what happened there.

Reading comments though, I giggled when one reader suggested that Rufus changes to suit the woman that he is with, which is totally true!

And Lily never really respected him as a man because, like her daughter and Blair, she is actually attracted to men who treat her just a wee bit bad…I mean, um, present a challenge to their strong personalities (yeah, right!).

Other (obvious) spoilers:

Blair and Chuck get married. It was very anticlimactic and I absolutely hated Blair’s dress (I hardly ever liked the clothes they wore on the show anyway.) They have a son but I guess I have to get caught up to find out what happened to Blair and Louie’s baby?!?!

BTW, those two park Blair/Chuck know-it-alls have a vital role in the marriage but where are Blair’s minions??

Georgina’s so-called scheme was lame and was just a rounding up of all of the usual suspects. Yawn.

Flash forward five years and we see Dan and Serena tying the knot (I hated her dress too.) but I would have loved to see how they finally made it to the alter.

Apparently Blair does get a career in fashion (I have no idea what Serena ends up doing).

Lil Jenny Humphry makes a brief appearance with a designer purse that reads J by Waldorf so…..

But she doesn’t get any lines. Lol.

Ivy writes a tell all about duping the rich for their money. I need to get caught up there. I just got to the point where she is being blackmailed by her ex for $500,000.

Let’s see…who’s left…

Cover of "Veronica Mars"

Oh, yeah, Nate…he ends up running a very successful magazine and they hint that he may be running for Mayor. No girl for him, apparently. They should have put him back with Vanessa…power couple to take on Chuck and Blair. Lol.

Oh, and why wasn’t Scott at the wedding?!?!

My favorite (really, the only part that moved me besides being angry at Lily) was the cameo “I thought is was Dorota” moments from real life celebrities. My fav being the voice of Gossip Girl herself, Veronica Mars alum: Kristen Bell.

No clue the significane of the Rachel chick but I actually squeeled to see Ronnie. Lol. And that wink…too cute….

And, of course, they had to send Gossp Girl to bed with a warning that since there will always be an outsider with a need to be “in”, there will always be a “Gossip Girl”.

{July 25, 2012}   Bored with the internet

Every now and then, I just get bored with the internet.

I just feel…blah…about it…

English: A bored person

Which can be a bad thing being as I work from the internet.

I just don’t want to even turn on any internet connected device.

Check email?



Not today.

It usually passes as I force myself through.

Hm. Perhaps I should track this feeling and see if it follows my cycle of the moon.


Meanwhile, maybe I should go find me some silly video on youtube to give me a case of  the giggles.


Does anyone else burn out of wanting to be on the internet every now and then?

I am being so inspired by my friend.

No, she is not rich.

A happy woman

No, she is not famous.

But today, she has moved from living an impoverished life to a life with more substance.

She has a good source of income.

She found a good man.

She has moved out of public housing.

She is traveling.

She is living a wonderful life, in God and in the world.

In truth, the secret to her success is God.

And remember, the key is not to envy someone else’s good life but, instead, to be inspired by it.

{June 20, 2012}   The privilege of touch

Touching another human being is not a right, it is a privilege.

Touch can send shivers up your spine.

Shivers of appreciation.

Shivers of revulsion.

I almost racked a guy on church property who touched me without permission.

It was not the touch, per se, but the intention behind the touch.

To cop a free feel.


At the most, I would have given him the Church Hug.

Y’know the one.

NEW YORK, NY - AUGUST 27:  Julissa Fugeuroa (L...

There are approximately 370,000 city residents in low lying areas are under a mandatory evacuation order ahead of Hurricane Irene. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)

Where you take all of your good bits and lean them back so they cannot even accidentally touch any of his.

It can also be referred to as the All We’ll Ever Be Is Friends Hugs.

You know that you have been given or received that hug. LMAO.

I was watching the Daily Buzz this morning and they did a story that secretly women like to clean.

The Daily Buzz

Really, we do….?

Nobody told me!

Because I loathe cleaning with a p.a.s.s.i.o.n.!!!!!

I am with Kia Malone who says to just get your husband to do it.

Now all I need is a husband…

Any takers?

Andy did have a point when he says that their is a sense of satisfaction in having a clean house when others come over.

Yeah, I get that one.

I prefer my house at least be relatively presentable when folks come a’callin’…

But what does it seem that I only get guests when my house is “tow up from the flo’ up”.

However, that just make cleaning a necessity not a fun time.

Enjoy folding laundry…

Washing dishes…

Mopping floors…

WTH were they thinking?!?
