OH Mexico…

The weather is lousy today, magnified by the fact that yesterday was so lovely. So, what better time to update about my most recent Mexico excursion.

I realize that I’ve been out of college for going on two years, but spring break still seems essential. Also, I happen to be one of the most fortunate people in that my bff Katie G and her fam have been including me in their family vacays since I was 14. I’m going to have to scan in some more pictures but I wanted to share some from Mexico through the years…

Radiohead/Miley Cyrus Altercation

The other night I was watching the soup (xx Joel McHale) and I learned of a certain dispute between Radiohead and Miley Cyrus. Being that I’m not Miley’s biggest fan, I found this to be hilarious:

Media sources have been reporting that Radiohead responded to teen star Miley Cyrus, who lashed out at the band for snubbing her at the Grammy Awards last month.

In a recent radio interview, Cyrus vented her anger at her one-time “favourite” band after they allegedly turned down an invitation to meet her back stage at the Grammys. She said: “I left ’cause I was so upset. I wasn’t going to watch. Stinkin’ Radiohead! I’m gonna ruin them, I’m going to tell everyone.”

According to E! Online, Radiohead responded to her remarks by saying, “When Miley grows up, she’ll learn not to have such a sense of entitlement.” As it turns out, the band’s publicist reportedly issued the statement and not the band themselves. http://www.nme.com/news/radiohead/43453

On a related note, a band called Easy Star All-Stars has a compilation of Radiohead covers on an album called “Radiodread”, it’s a really appealing, reggae sound featuring artists like Citizen Cope on classic Radiohead songs. You can listen to all the songs for free here: http://www.last.fm/music/Easy+Star+All-Stars/Radiodread

baby’s first blog

I’m not exactly sure where to start. I decided to start blog mostly for myself. I used to journal a lot and I’ve gotten out of the habit. I’m also pretty forgetful and desire a way to keep track of myself. So, hopefully it will be entertaining.

It is a beautiful day to be alive. March 18, 80 degrees and sunny. I know it won’t last but it’s such an exciting time. It’s only getting warmer and the days are only getting longer. I also feel like I am in the springtime of my life. Some days are sunny, some are stormy but the future is bright. I’m hopefully going to be doing some “self-discovery” on here so fasten your seat belts…

I might even try my hand at some romance, Payton Rosenzweig as the next Nora Roberts? Exactly how many synonyms are there for thrust? That’s for you Katie and Sara.

Spring has sprung!
