Last Wk in Pix + 2x2

Newsflash: It's still not Friday. 

On a happier note: I have a few pictures from last week. 

Last week (January 22nd, to be precise) was my birthday! I made Chris and Kelli drive deep in to the valley to the new Yardhouse in Northridge to watch the Clippers v Thunder game and toast to me being older. 

At work, everyone gets cake and decorations for their birthday. The problem was, they didn't know it was my birthday. 
Cake is a big deal. So I let my pal Adriana know that it was my birthday and the next day there was cake and decor. 
Most importantly, cake. 

Saturday we got all gussied up and went out for ma'birthday.
Well, first: we helped Chris move. Which explains the shape their apartment is in in the background. 

Thank goodness this is the only picture we took while we were out, because thing started getting real sloppy on my part not too long after the photo above was taken. I want you to remember me just. like. this. 

Coachella tickets went on sale, and weekend one sold out in five minutes. Five.
Next year I will have the disposable income to grab Coachella tickets without a second thought. This year, just like the last, I will listen to KROQ and attempt to win tickets. 

Last week I learned:
1.) Speak up when cake is at stake.
2.) Not having to work on Sundays is nice. (I quit my Sunday gig. Hooray for weekends!)

This week I'm looking forward to:
1.) This week being over. I had zero exciting plans this week except that I have zero plans. I can do whatever I want! (Which means lots of sleeping)
2.) Using my final birthday coupon for a Brownie Obsession at TGIFridays (Doing whatever I want also usually includes lots of chocolate).

Hey, it's a slow week.

Justice for Georgina, aka Go See Get Out Immediately

In Get Out, the brilliant new Jordan Peele film, black people are used by white people's brains. 
That's the shortest explanation, as there are so many levels to the movie. I'm typically not one to see scary movies (I can't even get through Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video), but when I read about this movie's perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes and the raving reviews from critics, I had to go and support this film from a black director with black stars.

I'm not a fan of scary movies. They always give me nightmares. Before I saw the film, a coworker assured me that I wouldn't have nightmares after watching Get Out. He was right and wrong. I didn't have nightmares about monsters lurking in dark corners, but I stayed awake unpacking all of the themes and metaphors of the film. In doing so, a big part of why I wasn't afraid occurred to me: These …

Sex. Dirty, Dirty Sex

Friends, I have something I have to let you know - if you don't know already: Sex is disgusting. 
Seriously, think about it. Ew, don't think about it.  Yes, it feels fantastic. If you're with the right person at the right time it feels out-of-this-world incredible (fireworks, much?).  But have you ever stopped to think about what you're doing? Like, literally?
You're placing your most private parts into someone else's most private parts. Or allowing someone to place their most private parts into yours, depending on your gender/sexual preference. That's GROSS, people! Sure we ignore it because it just feels so damn good. But come on, ew!
Then throw on top of that the consequences of this nasty habit we have:  1. A baby. Oh yes, this is a consequence. Particularly if you're not currently in the market for an infant. I don't even want to think about what that does to the body. There's no turning back from a baby. Well, there is, but that's ano…

How The New Prince Album(s) Wrecked My Life – In The Best Possible Way

If you don't know, now you know: Prince dropped an album yesterday called ART OFFICIAL AGE, and also brought us the debut album from his chick trio 3RDEYEGIRL titled PLECTRUMELECTRUM. 
 The Almighty Prince has been teasing us with new music for quite awhile now, dropping singles like "Breakfast Can Wait" long before the new album was announced. But then came the catchy and sexy "U Know" and the news that Prince would give us the first breath of new music since 20Ten in 2010. 
I've spent all of yesterday and today listening to these albums and I'm still not done. No surprise: Prince is blowing my mind. I'm a sucker for an album that tells a story, and this one tells a tale that's futuristic and retrospective at the same damn time. How? Prince, that's how. There's a wondering feeling that the protagonist is trying to find his place in life and love, only to discover (with the help of a guiding being) that he is everything, everything is h…
