Originally written for mah tumblr, be cool.

Look closely at that picture, my friends.  What is that white stuff?  Is it cocaine?  Powdered sugar?  Unflavored, loose snow cones?  No, mah dear tumblrs, it’s snow.

Yes, snow.

SNOW?

SNOW!!!

What’s today date?  How cold is it right now?  Would a helpful infographic answer some of those questions…



What the effing eff, you guys? Is this the dawn of a new Ice Age?  Is this the face of Springtime from now on?  Is blogging about the weather outside ever interesting?

We’re supposed to be due for a new Ice Age any time in the next few thousand years, right?  Actually, I looked for a pat answer to the question, “When is the next ice age, yo?” and found nothing but a lot of academic argument and speculation.  Thanks a lot, “Science”! Let’s just say we’re due for one “any time now”. Maybe this is The Big One….er, the start of One of the Other Big Ones?

For the record, I’d be happy if it never got above 80 degrees, but this is a bit much.  I don’t have a cute pair of stylish,  but funtictional boots and now I’m supposed to be wrapping myself in furs and cooking up the butchered seal and woolly mammoth meat that the menfolk haul back to the cave?  No thank you!

I’ve made the Ice Age joke a few times before, but really, May 12, snow?  What are you going to do tomorrow, Nature?  Make it rain kittens and then chase us around with pepperoni pizza tornadoes?  Come on!

Mood: This is a long week, y’all

Feliz Cinco de Mayo, Internet!

I was getting down, tumblr-style in celebration of Mexico’s victory at the Battle of Puebla and had written something worthy of posting on Ye Old Blog, Sweet Blog.  So here it is…it’s about mariachi and my love of Mexican (and Hispanic) culture and I hope you like it!  Saunter over to mah tumblr page for more Cinco de Mayo goodness.


———————-



I love mariachi, you guys, like really and for truly…without a hint of irony. I love everything about it; the charro suits and dresses…the sombreros…the sweet, sad songs…the trumpets and violins…the musical cry of AH HA…the fat guitarrón…all of it.

Like most things, I think my interest started in childhood.  When I was little, I liked three things: skiing, alpine slides, and Casa Bonita.  We didn’t get to go to Casa Bonita as often as I would have liked (which, admittedly, would have been most days), but the few times we did get to visit the cavernous, pueblo-shaped monument to bad food, mariachi bands, and gun fighters had a profound effect on tiny me and my developing aesthetic.



At some point, mariachi moved from a fond remembrance of childhood to a more serious, adult interest. I remember watching a PBS documentary about the annual mariachi festival in Guadalajara and it was riveting; I would love to go someday.

A few years later, my family took a Mexican vacation to a resort between Cozumel and Tulum.  It was a super fun trip, but one of the best parts was a Mexican folk music revue in the resort’s main square.  I begged my wary family to buy tickets for it, swearing it would be the best thing ever.  I don’t think they liked it much.  It was made for tourists and high school musical cheesy in places, but the music was solid.  The show featured a lot of mariachi, but they also did a tour of Mexico’s other indigenous styles (jarocho, etc.).  I think the rest of my family wanted to leave about 2/3rds of the way through, but I loved it all.



Yeesh, this is getting long!  K, two more things…some day, I am going to host a big party somewhere, for some reason, and I am going to hire a sweet mariachi band to play all night long.  Also, if there was a real, dirty, hard-drinking, dead sexy band like the one in From Dusk Till Dawn (minus the demon/vampire part), I would quit my job and become a professional groupie, just sayin’.

Mood: Fuh-fuh-duh-Friday!
Music: The mum mum mum of the television


Tumblr


Well hey there! Just so you know, tumblr has taken over my life and I kind of feel like selling all my possesions and shaving my head in the hopes that it pleases the elders of tumblr.  Until I finish one of those stories, here a recap of the “amazingly funny” stuff I’ve been shooting into deep tumblr space lately.

I think we need to talk about this, I have so many questions.  I  just noticed this banner ad for another dating/hookup site at the top of  my dating/hookup site.  I’m going to go with the theory that  the person who created this ad knew what they were doing, but ew, you  guys.  Wouldn’t it have been easier to just show Laying Down  Guy’s engorged member?  Why is his lover standing up in bed?!   Is this the sort of advertising that appeals to queer boys?  What would  the equivalent queer girl ad look like?

an introduction





Hi, I'm Anna and I love cheese!

This blog is a chronicle of my life and a catalog of happy ephemera. The About page has a little bit more information, but, remember, none of this is really me...it's just a supplement, a thumbnail sketch, a mostly anonymous Intarwebs placeholder. I'm way better/less wordy in person. :-)

Oh, and if I wrote something about you and you thought it was mean or hurtful, I'm sorry. It's how I felt at the time, but probably isn't how I feel now. Chances are, I love you and I think you're awesome.
