My Sunday Recap is about as consistent and reliable as John Travolta’s hair
plugs. One week it’s there, glittering in all over its glory, and the next it is gone, letting everyone down with it’s blatant disregard for the wishes of the masses. I care about you. I do. So here I sit, in my Hello Kitty Footy Pj’s, dusting off this gem of a post theme. Instead of writing what I learned this week, here is what I loved.
‘Nothing To Envy’ North Korea
I am legitimately, straight up fascinated with this country. It all started with watching a Vice Docu and reading some articles. Now I can’t stop trying to soak up information about the disconnected land, and I admit, having to sometimes hold back some tears. Want a heart-wrenching documentary to watch? If you have Netflix, try Seoul Train.
This week, I got Nothing To Envy – Ordinary Lives In North Korea by Barbara Demick and have had my nose stuck in it’s pages since I opened it up. True tales & experiences from those that lived in North Korea and then deserted their homeland. Beautiful, touching stories.
I’ve had more fun from reading guest post entries this week than from picking my nose, and that’s saying something (have you seen my header pic?). Shel, Ned, Michelle, and Jill have been a lot of fun to work with, and give me faith that this guest post thing might just work out after all. Do make sure that you check out their posts & blogs, and then send me your own! Because as much as I enjoy sitting around eating bags of chips, picking my nose, and crying to Enya songs … I love reading your stuff even more.
Just Dance 4
Okay, maybe I don’t really love this one per se … though I do love when my pants stop cutting off my circulation. I’ve lost 6 lbs this month; a combination of ignoring the donut section, and of discovering/playing Just Dance 4 – Just Sweat. Seriously. For people like me that hate, loathe exercise and fear the thought of getting up off of the couch, Just Dance has your back. It’s fun, relatively easy, and makes time pass by faster than the treadmill does. Sure, I’ve also been on the treadmill … but that’s only because of the magical inspirational powers of this holy Wii game.
Mobbed & tears
Never mind the fact that Howie Mandel is blindly in love with himself, lets focus on the show. I’m not a fan of watching other people sing and dance (Glee? Puke!), but this show has so much more to it. Someone surprises another someone with a secret — and they go about it by putting together a flash mob of thousands of dancers to suck the victim in. The stories are sometimes heart wrenching, and since I am an emotional woman, I love watching anything that is going to make me bawl into the box of tissues. This show does that.
Last week, Girl decides to pronounce her love to Dude on national television … even though he has never expressed the same feelings for her. Dude (who I think is a bit in the closet …), in the midst of saying “Wowww” every five seconds, denounces her love. He don’t love you honey, and the world weeps with her.
I love them, you love them, we all love free stuff. And now, because of all the love, I’ll be hosting a couple in the coming week(s). Thanks to my wallet, a sponsor, and an artist willing to do artist things in the name of Loony. So stay tuned for that, one should be up and running by the end of this week.
