Many Moons Ago

29 May

Wordpress moons

 

Many, many, moons ago I posted a Missed Connection ad in Craigslist. Do you guys remember? If not here is the link to that post . Well it turns out that one the many gentlemen who were gracious enough to take the time to respond found out that I had written about my Missed Connection ad and that I had shared his response on my blog.

His response to my Criagslist ad:

Not wanting to lose that special connection we once had he decided to leave me a comment:

Could it be that even after all this he is still interested? Should I stop shaving and let my fur start growing out? After all, he does seem to have a sense of humor and isn’t that what every girl wants in a man? Maybe….. jusssssst maybe he is my Mr. Right or perhaps after I post this I will mysteriously  disappear and will  never be seen or heard of again.

Just in case :/ someone check up on me in a month or so.

Mr. Nottafastguy kudos to you for having a sense of humor and I promise this is the last time I mention you. Unless you decide to reply to another one of my missed connection 🙂 Bwahaha Bwahaha

I just don’t learn 🙂

The Force Is Strong

3 Mar

Its been a long time since I last wrote in my blog. I wasn’t even sure I new how to log in anylonger. But I guess I was able to since you are now reading this post or did I telephathically send you message via the force?

I have a small story to tell you all but I need more time to sit down and write it down for you.

Its regarding a post I had written last year on craigslist.

Dubstep Dancing….

8 Jul

Dubstep1

What is Dubstep and am I to late to learn?

Dubstep is a genre of electronic dance music. Its overall sound has been described as "tightly coiled productions with overwhelming bass lines and reverberant drum patterns, clipped samples, and occasional vocals".

Translation it’s a string of noises and sounds that makes no sense at all.

Here is sampling of Dubstep Music.

 

I don’t know about you but I myself couldn’t make it thru 2 minutes of it. Sure I’ll be the first one to stand up and raise the volume on the radio, I’ll also be the first one to dance at a club or party. But this? Is this really music or just a bunch of odd sounds put together?

Granted some, dubstep music or is it songs? Are remixes of popular songs.  I was able to enjoy (ummm tolerate)  a bit more and was able to make it thru the whole video.

 

Now that I’ve decided what kind of dubstep music I’d rather listen to, comes the most important question of all.

Can I dance to it?

Am I to old to learn dupstep?

How do you dance to it?

Well it turns out, nobody seems to be very certain how exactly you dubstep dance.  After an intense  search on youtube. I found that sometimes it’s the robot, sometimes it’s a pop-and lock,  a move in slow motion  dance  and then there’s the just swing and flail your arms around dance.

 

 

After watching these videos I’ve decided that my old age joints wouldn’t be able to handle it nor could my brain handle the so called dubstep music. Although the flailing arms one seems easy enough if I don’t mind looking like a fool.  So will any of you be dubstepping soon? Who’s with me? Should we form a crew? Can we get matching outfits?

To apply please send me a video of your best dubstep moves.  I need a good laugh every once and a while.

P.S the use of a walker as a prop is a big plus Winking smile

A Hot Weekend

19 Dec

freesample

It was  just as regular Saturday morning. I woke up around 8, it was cold cloudy and gloomy, perfect sleeping weather, so I decided to go back to bed and take a 30 min nap. Hey!  it’s still early, it’s the weekend, I can splurge on a little extra sleep.  Fast forward  4 hours later and 60 text alerts later I find myself waking up once again. I swear I only closed my eyes for a second!

Why am I alarmed? Good question! Did I have an appointment I just missed? Did the turkey burn in the oven? Did my morning strip-o-gram come and go? No……. Its Saturday! And  Saturdays usually mean one thing, its Costco day! Better known to the uninitiated out there as sampling day! Now I don’t need to profess to all the practiced and proficient samplers out there that you have to get to Costco early in order to try ALL the variety of  samples. Also, especially important, avoid the crowds of amateur Hodge Podge samplers! There’s a real art to this people!

In a panic, much like Macaulay Culkin in Home alone when He realizes he is left all by himself, I clench my face , bellow a subtle” Nooooooooo!”and hurry to shower and get ready to meet up with my sampling partner in crime.  He is known in 13 states as the “Costco Casanova”, In Australia he is referred to as the “Auburn Adonis”, in Acapulco as “El Chulo de Costco”, he is even rumored to be the fabled “Spicy Kim Chi Swooner” of Costcos in Korea! Most of us know him as Master.  I quickly began to properly stretch and limber up for the activities ahead! Don’t want to repeat the sampling cramp debacle of 2008  again! Everyone knows not to swim for half an hour after eating, but nooooo! No one warns you to stretch before beginning sampling! Ha! That’s why this is not for the amateurs, timid or weak of heart! On a side note, the legwarmers and the “flash dance” outfit I wear to stretch and prepare still look ever as cool as they did in the mid 80’s! Awesome! just Awesome! dare I even say Legendary!  Ever so slightly in the background I hear the high pitched screech of a supercharger, then the thunderous roar of the engine…. Master is here! We first stop at the PO Box to see if I have any last minute Christmas gifts from my FB, Twitter or blogging friends (ehm! hint, hint).  I find an unassuming manila envelope and a pretty purple envelope (thanks Josef) waiting for me. Oh! As I glanced at the return address on the manila envelope, my heart skipping a little and my mouth began to slightly drool, it was the promised beef jerky from a fellow PGPeep.  It turns out I was one of the lucky 10 peeps to receive Mr. Keith BigBabyJesus Brower’s home made beef jerky. Since I wanted to savor every bite, and absolutely NO FOOD is allowed in the AMG, I decide (some might say FORECD with threats of bodily harm) to wait and not open my surprise beef jerky gift until I was safe back at the office.

Normally on a weekend, it takes about an hour just to find a suitable parking space. Add the fact that it is December and its one week away from Christmas, of course it’s a mad house in the parking lot! Not to worry, I have complete confidence in Masters driving ability. You need to have professional driving skills; I mean Grand Prix kind not just regular, I passed the DMV test so now I can drive skills. Reaction times must be swift, braking and acceleration response must be rapid. Eyes open for rogue shopping carts, unassuming people haphazardly waiting and blocking the street, cars pulling out without looking,  the  sense of danger on high alert, eyes wide open for that oh so prime parcel of parking space or any space at all for that matter. There! There! I shriek! A premiere parking space about to open by an elderly lady leaving.  Before I could finish the “…re” from me screaming “There”, Master had already gunned the engine, dropped into 1st gear and was drifting sideways in a billow of tire smoke into the parking space! Mere seconds after and inches behind the vacating car. Bravo! Bravo I say!

Once parked we went straight to the food section where the net haired maidens were distributing the various morsels of sampling delight. We have to make up for all the lost time! Me being the professional sampler that I am, I quickly mapped out my sampling route… Fruits, cheeses, guacamole, tamales, ham, calamari (that’s a tricky one… long lines for those), should I risk it? I turn and tell Master “Lets do this thing!” With the skills of a ninja I hit the first couple of stands. Not only do I get my own samples but I must also manage to get Master his samples.  Master knows the drill, he with his superstar looks distracts the ladies while I snatch the goodies. Boom! Done and done! Off we go onto the next table! Yet again, like deer in headlights, all the housewives swoon and look away to gaze at Master the Costco Casanova, Muha ha ha ha , I get two more samples!   All was going well until a lady bumps me with her shopping cart! Owwwwwwww! As I bend down to rub my ankle she quickly snatched the last two samples from the tray! Oh no you didn’t!!  Can this be! Could there be a woman unaffected by Masters remarkable charms? Can she really absorb all that enchanting alluring charisma and simply focus on the samples! How could this be! Is she far sighted? She cant see? Does she play for the “other team”? Or is she just a trained professional!

Imagine the rest of what happens in slow motion! I erect myself to full stature.  Somehow wind is blowing in my hair… My scarf flaps ever so rhythmically… I hear heroic music begin to play… I puff my chest and am about to yell like king Leonidas  “THIS…. IS…. PKITASS!!!!!!” and retaliate!  When all of a sudden everything went back to normal speed as the sweet aroma of a smoked salmon sample that Master quickly handed me calmed me down sufficiently to impeded my retaliatory actions! Never underestimate the power of smoked fish!  The lady smirked ever so condescendingly and left.  Perhaps I was unable to retaliate, but by gosh, if looks could kill! she would have been dead several times over. I think I have just met my Costco nemesis! Game On “Shin Hurting with Shopping Cart Sample Stealing Lady” or SHWSCSSL! Game On!

Back at the office, once everything was put away, I proceed to open my package. I was very very excited to discover what culinary delight was in store for me. I had heard so many good things about Mr. Brower’s beef jerky.  Remember the scene from Raiders of the Lost Ark when they finally open the Ark of the Covenant and all the ghost like entities escape and float around right before they turn demonic and kill everyone? Imagine the same thing… Just without Nazis or a bullwhip packing archeologist tied to a post.   As I slowly began  to rip the package open I immediately got a whiff of the meaty goodness that was to be in my mouth soon.  I had been pre-warned that it would be spicy and to take certain precautions while handling it.  Ha I say! Ha!  I’m of Mexican decent! I come from a long proud line of chili eaters. As a kid, we used to eat chilies as candy for Halloween!  How bad can it possible be? I take my first bite and proclaim with much bravado to Master, HA! It’s not as bad as they all said it would be.  However, just like in Raiders! the ghost angels quickly turned into demons and…. AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!! You have to give it a few seconds for All the wonderful spiciness to fully permeate your mouth! It doesn’t hit you right away, It actually lets you enjoy and savor the sweetness of the beef jerky first then when you least expect it BAM!

Over all it was a very tasty experience! So what if your mouth goes numb afterwards! Who cares if everything tastes the same the entire weekend! the taste of the  jerky makes all worth it.  Mr. Brower thank you for the treat, you can burn my mouth with your meat anytime.

Now this is what I call blogging!

Marina Sleeps's Blog

Goooooooooood Morning!!!!

Are you ready?????

What were you and your children doing Saturday morning? Probably you all were hung over from Friday night!

Huh? Huh?

While you were being lazy, somewhere sometime (technically the greater Southern California area at about 11:45am) this marching band was kicking ass and taking names.

Feast your eyes on this band!!!

If more half time shows provided entertainment such as this, I might not in be the bathroom trying to get rid of the gallon of soda I just drank!!

Today I like to feature a marching band who deserves no introduction but I am still going to give them one because you probably have no idea who they are but should!

Panorama High School won 1st place for Marching Band in their division, 1st place in drum line, and 3rd place for drill team!!

Hey Detroit, this band is waaaaaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy better than…

My Back and Freaky Deaky Sex

8 Sep

Sometimes I suffer from back pain. Not excessively, but when I do it sure does a number on me. I  spend lots of time sitting  at a computer and a considerable amount driving long distances. It also doesn’t help that I have big breasts and will lift 40-50lbs boxes up flight of stairs if asked or needed.  This week I find myself  conquering back pain again. But I think I know the reason why I ‘m in pain no it’s not really because I got all acrobatic during sex nor did I decide to have a long weekend sexcapade. I think it was my trip to the beach on Sunday and the wave that made me it’s bitch. Yes, I got knocked down by a wave and somehow rolled around for a second just to come up from the water to be knocked out again! (Here’s a tip for you DO NOT turn your back to the waves even if the Lifeguard is cute looking  or to stare at  lifeguard with the  1980’s porn star brostache).  At the time my back didn’t  hurt but the next morning I was a little stiff and with slight dull pain but by Tuesday it was a full blown painful to stand or walk.  Its now Thursday and the pain continues, lets see how long I can take it before I give up and decide to go to a doctor.

Honestly I just wanted to remind everyone that I have big boobies Open-mouthed smile

Sometimes I Just Want to Kiss You

12 May

Big_Kiss

Need I say more?

So what happened?

10 May

How was everyone’s mother’s Day? Did all the mommies out there get a little extra special something this weekend? Whether it be to sleep in late, some pretty flowers, an extra meatball in your plate (hopefully not rolled over by a snotty nose)  the kids taken to the in-laws so you get the house to yourself with hubby?

Or maybe you just received a hug and a nice hand made mothers card from your kids. Anything done or give to you on Mothers Day is ok and we as mother accept it with open arms.

This year I was very lucky! On Saturday night TCIMaster and I went to Korean BBQ.  You might remember our earlier Korean escapade from my previous post “The CIA & a Korean Hangover” just in case you need to know what exactly it is. However, it is with a heavy heart and an unsatisfied stomach, that I have to report that we were both tremendously saddened to discover that our usual Korean jaunt had changed ownership!  With a heavy conscious I gently whispered to TCIMaster, almost afraid if the new owners might hear, do you think we caused the previous owners to sell because they couldn’t justify the sheer number of seemingly endless platters of meat we ordered? Never the less, we both took “the plate if half full of meat not half empty” mentality and boldly walked in.  Remember when Norm used to walk into the bar at Cheers and everyone would simultaneously jollily bellow “NOOORM"!  We walk in….. Nothing! Nada! ( Insert Cricket noise here). We were no longer the VIPs of Korean past. We were, as most there, newbies! Oh well… as we kept an open mind and began the choreographed ballet of meats, fire, mouth, repeat. We soon came to an unsettling realization that it no longer was the same the quality of the meats as before. Nor was the service anywhere the same. TCIMaster got a little misty eyed and shed a tear…  He tried every so valiantly to be strong, but just couldn’t restrain himself.  Looses a good Korean BBQ place will in no doubt affect him. Obviously we can no longer recommend the new Korean place to anyone.  The upside of this tragedy is that now we will be in search of a new Korean BBQ restaurant  and we shall not stop until we find another great one.

Now on actual Mothers Day I received a surprise call from my Mother Chula! Thinking it was just to wish me a Happy Mothers Day, I didn’t think much about it, then she casually said

Chula: “What are the plans for today?”

Me: “Nothing just hanging out”

Chula: “You should get ready so we can go some place to eat”

Me: “WHAT?!”

Chula: “You and Cici should get ready and we’ll go somewhere nice to eat”

Me: “How?”

Chula: “I’m by LAX at a meeting we’ll be there soon to pick you both up”

Me: “Swissssshhhhhhh” The sound of me dropping the phone without hanging up and running like an addle school girl to prepare to go.

My mother was in town? Score!!!  we get to go to brunch! Off we went to enjoy a nice Mothers Day Brunch and some laughs. Then only thing that would have made it even better was if my sister had joined us. I wont bore you all with details of how I got us in without a reservation or that there were people waiting for over an hour to be seated and I got us seated in 15 mins. No, no, no there is just no need for me to show off or give away any of  my trade secrets. Just know it was done. After our incredibly satisfying brunch (omelet, waffles, crab legs, shrimp cocktail, braised ribs, smoked salmon, plus enough slices of pie and desserts to furnish a small bakery) we said our goodbyes and my mother set off to drive home.

My daughter then decided to invite me the movies ( she paid that was her gift to me) to go watch Thor (big sigh)!  Ah Thor how you make my heart race. Its official I am dumping Tony Stark for Thor, I don’t enjoy breaking hearts but…. sadly our love has run its course, I wonder how he will take the news. Its official Thor is now my new boyfriend. My new found love for Thor might have something to do with Chris Hemsworth playing the role, who knows…. the heart wants what the heart wants or sees in this case (swoon)

My iPhone

On Thursday evening I noticed my phone’s battery life was  down to 20%. I didn’t think much of it, believing that I would charge it once I got back to the office. Once at the office I tried charging it only to find that it would no longer charge. I tried every way possible to charge it with no luck. As I paced back and forth watching the life drain from my phone I decided to back it up as quickly as possible just in case. Mean while TCIMaster went online and made an appointment for the next day at an Apples genius bar believing that they would be able to fix it.

The next day at the apple store I was told it could not be repaired!!! NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!! I screamed (on the inside), I didn’t make a scene… The nice apple store lady explained to me, while gently holding my hand, that they were taking my iPhone to live on a farm with a lot of other iPhones that have retired somewhere they can run free and play under the warm sun.  I truly believe this to be true and I’m happy knowing it will enjoy a better life now.

It’s a very good thing I used the last bit of life left on my phone to back it up! If not I’d be very very very upset today. I’m now trying to restore everything onto the new iPhone, which on the first try didn’t restore all of my stuff, I’m missing apps, pictures and the coffee video. I’ll try resetting the phone again tonight and see what happens.

Coffee Fail Whale

10 May

imagesCAIKOQ1E

I tried on several occasions last night to recover the coffee video from my phone. After many many attempts, I was finally able to to retrieve it and began to prep to upload to YouTube .  Then, as always it seems now a days,  I came across yet another road block! I couldn’t get it to upload on YouTube.  Have I pissed off Karma somehow? Why are all these, albeit small issues, keep getting in my way? First my iPhone breaks, then all my pictures and videos are scrambled in the phone with no particular rhyme or reason, now the internet is giving me the middle finger!  However, since I am obligated to all of you that actually enjoy my mischievous adventures, I forced my self to stay up till the wee hours of the night  until I was able to successfully uploaded the video.  Great Success!

I believe this place was the easiest target yet. Unfortunately, it took me but a minute to completely understand why. Their coffee wasn’t worth guarding! It was AWFULL!  Now I don’t expect high end coffee at every place…. But COME ON! This was like a non brand knock off of Folgers freeze dried coffee that they purchased from the clearance isle of a bargain basement barn type liquidation store! Yeah… THAT good and tasty! I would have preferred a spoon full of instant coffee mixed with microwaved tap water than this shoddy mockery of a coffee flavored beverage.  Ok Ok… maybe I could mask the flavor with a very generous dollop of cream… Nope! Wrong again! They didn’t have any flavored creamer, nor did they have any other options for sugar. It was just the powdered stuff and table sugar! YUMMO! Pastries were obviously a no show also. Not even cookies! The coffee was so bad that I ended up having an upset stomach afterward. We shall not be returning for seconds here.

Rating is two sad coffee spoons Sad smileSad smile

 

 

Video is not one of my best work but the music is uplifting.
