I had a major realization this week. When you listen to ‘Somebody that I used to know’ over and over again on repeat all day it stops being a pretty yet angsty hipster breakup song and starts sounding a bit stalkerish.
Okay, I guess that wasn’t a MAJOR REALIZATION, but it was a realization. I do what I can. I’m having a major song obsessed moment. Last night I made The Fella stop at a karaoke bar for the sole purpose of singing this one song. I also realized I’m no Gotye.
Other realizations: More than three baby corns in a stir fry is too many baby corns in a stir fry, my favorite nail polish color is Lady Like by Essie, and oh yeah I look damn fine in a pair of boxing gloves.
By “damn fine” what I mean is “sweaty disgusting monster.”
The Fella and I signed up for kickboxing classes, and we went to our first class this week. The session comes complete with super sore butt and pink boxing gloves (there was a choice between red, black, and pink–I’m a fan of demonstrating my femininity while kicking ass and taking names).
The class was a lot of fun, I can’t wait to go back and get my roundhouse back on.
In the meantime, I’ve had a crazy busy week.
I stopped by my agents office to sign my official book contract! Hurrah!
One day my book is going to be in the lobby, too!
This is a somewhat hectic week chocked full of work, graduations (The Fella is becoming a Master of Arts from NYU this week. I’ve decided to call him Master Roy for as long as I can get away with), and a day celebrating my mom.
I’ve had to take a few days off from writing this week, my mom and I decided to celebrate Mother’s Day a few days early…and hit up a taping of ‘The Chew’ this morning. In exchange, Sunday I’ll be home typing–but I’ve given my father explicit instructions to do some serious pampering.
The show was a lot of fun, and I am proud to report that the cast was really nice even when the cameras were off (unlike my experience at the ‘Rachael Ray Show’), and made it a point to hang out with the audience, chat, and take pictures. I was lucky to be asked to sit at the tasting table–which means I got to eat all the yummy things the chefs were making. Feel free to hate me a little.
I was supposed to ask Clinton Kelly a fashion question too, but the segment ran too long. Sigh, at least I got some tasty morsels out of the deal. The episode was all about my favorite food: Buffalo Wings! It will air on June 21st. If you’re in NYC, or will be visiting, I would definitely recommend getting tickets for a viewing.
Afterward I took my mom out for a celebratory margarita in her honor.
The woman gave me life, the least I can do is ply her with tequila.
What are you planning for Mother’s Day?
