Things I've Pondered in Mejico

These are some of the questions I've been asking myself since arriving at the Moon Palace Resort in Cancun -

  • Why are there so many people from Great Britain vacationing here? Seriously, don't these people have cooler places to travel to like Majorca?
  • Why is it that the only handicap stall in any of the public restrooms at the resort is located in the restroom that has 3 stairs leading to the row of stalls?
  • Why is my hair so FUGLY here? I look like an electrocuted poodle.
  • Why is Mexican TV so random?
  • Why don't they sell lemon flavored Fritos is the States?
  • How am I ever going to live without free/unlimited pina coladas?

I Don't Like Fawking Mondays

Mondays for me at work suck so damn much. On top of the usual drudgery, I also had to deal with the nazi regime that is the property managers at my dad's senior care facility.
And then my dad fell (AGAIN!) this morning. And didn't tell me. And won't tell me anything that led to the fall or answer any of my questions - did you trip?, were you dizzy? did you bruise anything (besides your ego)?
So damn frustrating.

I was able to do something for myself today at least - I got my eyebrows waxed and a much needed pedicure. I could have stayed in that chair with that little Vietnamese lady massaging my legs and feet all night.

Now I face the daunting task of packing more of my shit up. At least I'm doing it with a fucking cocktail - Sprite Zero, coconut rum, and pineapple juice. Bliss.

The Brillance of "Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog

I'm totally obsessed with the latest genius creation from Joss Whedon. You can go and view all 3 acts at the Dr. Horrible web site until Sunday, July 20, otherwise spend the money and download the acts from iTunes. Seriously brilliant, even if there is a character named Moist (which...GROSS). And Neil Patrick Harris rules!

Take your freeze ray and STOP THE WORLD.

So You Think You Can Dance Round-up - top 10

This was definitely a bittersweet week for me SYTYCD-wise. On one hand, 3 of my all-time favorite dance performances in the history of this show were nominated for Emmys this week:
Outstanding Choreography
So You Think You Can Dance • Routine: Hummingbird and Flower / 'The Chairman's Waltz' • Wade Robson, Choreographer
So You Think You Can Dance • Routine: Transformers / 'Fuego' • Shane Sparks, Choreographer
So You Think You Can Dance • Routine: Table / 'Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This)' • Mandy Moore, Choreographer

On the other hand, one of my favorite male dancers from this season got eliminated. I knew that Gev wasn't going to win this competition. And there are definitely two other guys that I like better (Joshua and Twitch). So although I knew Gev's time was coming up, it was still a blow to see him leave because I absolutely adored the contemporary routine that he did with Chelsea this week.
Oh and speaking of the Emmy nominations, another travesty - Cat Deeley not being nominated for reality show host! I love me some Tom Bergeron so I don't begrudge his nom, but Seacrest the anti-Christ? F*cking Probst again? REALLY?

Anyway, in general this season of SYTYCD has not excited me that much. Maybe it's because the last two seasons, especially last year's, were so amazing. I don't know what it is, but there haven't been nearly as many stand-out performances for me this season. And the competition seems to be moving much quicker yet simultaneously dragging for me for some reason. Wednesday night I was like, "wow top 10 already", but at the same time I find myself wishing it was the final 4 already.

All I know is that Comfort better go home next week. I'm so over her!
