Treat Yo Self!

So the Endeavour made its trip over Sacramento today. Apparently it was the talk of the town, because pictures of the shuttle dominated my Facebook and Twitter page. I didn’t know it was a big deal. If I knew, I would’ve made time to see it. Of course, history repeated itself. I thought of Coachella. You know, Coachella, the return of Tupac. No?

Tupac made an appearance this past summer during the first weekend at Coachella.

When people first heard about it , they were going nuts!!!
Then the second weekend of Coachella happened, people were like “Eh”.

Safe to say that I feel the same way about this situation. Ever since the journey began, it has been in the media. For me, this was MY second weekend of Coachella.

Enough hating, my television shows are back! The Office and Parks and Recreation. I missed Parks and Rec., but I was able to watch The Office. I know The Office has been a downer since the great Michael Scott left, but the show keeps me laughing so I can’t complain.

I wish Kevin’s bit was available on YouTube because his efforts saving a turtle was awesome.

Here are three words to live by, courtesy of Parks & Rec, for the weekend.

I told the blog world what I will be doing on Sunday in my last past. If you missed the post, I’ll be doing some Tailgating at the Raiders  Game.

I just got word that Raider legend Marcus Allen will be lighting the Al Davis flame also. He should get a nice crowd reaction.

Yeah, he signed it for me.

Saturday? I have no clue. I will just be going with the flow. For now, I’m just counting down the time when my shift comes to a close.

My Friday Favorite Video?

The joy of one-hit wonders.

Enjoy the weekend!

A Little Laughter For The Day

Vintage beating.

I don’t know why this video popped in my head.

Viernes, Viernes, Viernes

Just in case you forgot, I work graveyard shifts. Here is some good reading as proof: Sleep? Not Really In My Vocabulary.  I didn’t get home till about 5:30/6 this morning. After a hard-earned 8 hours, I pretty much deserved a donut. A chocolate bar and dozen donut holes satisfied my stomach. Honestly, that was the first time I had donuts in about three months.

Want to know how I felt? I thought about my second favorite TV character, Ron Swanson:

The best part about this skit, the Tiger Woods killer polo. Second favorite? Him offering to buy a Walkman. Throwback!

Because of that skit, I’m going to wear a red polo this weekend. I might even buy another donut.

OK, this post is written in no particular order, I’m just going with the flow You’ve Been Warned.

Just found out that a good friend is moving back to Sacramento. My best friend is moving to San Francisco by New Years. My cousin will be in Oakland for her birthday next month! I must say, the last months of 2012 will be AWESOME!

Speaking of SF, as much as I don’t want to bore you and tell you I’ll be there tomorrow….I will be there tomorrow. It’s ridiculously hot and I just want to be near the beach. I’ve never been to Baker’s Beach so I’m looking forward to going if the plan holds up.

Sidenote: Have you ever finished eating something good and then end up angry after? I just finished eating a Snickers and now I’m angry cause it’s gone.

Ron Swanson #2

I feel like that right now.

No more Parks and Rec references anymore.

I do have one more video for you though. This song came on my iPod last not. The beauty of putting it on shuffle, you hear things and just laugh or smile.  In this case I just laughed.

I remember this song when I was in the seventh grade. I had no idea what they were talking about yet I knew all the words. Man, good times.

Enjoy the weekend folks!

Rock The Bells 2012 Edition

Not writing a whole lot today. I’m just going to say that Rock The Bells is this weekend and I’m not attending. I will be in Oakland to watch the Raiders play the Lions during the same time a music is taking place. So today, nothing but music videos from some of the artists that will be performing.

Rock The Bells will be a Music Festival of the Old School and the New School colliding. This collision course should lead to a nice crowd this weekend in Mountain View. Ok, I’m done. Enjoy the some of the videos.

Bone Thugs – N – Harmony

Slick Rick

DJ Quik (My favorite)

Ice Cube

Naughty By Nature

J. Cole

 

Nice mixture of the performers. I left out some good ones, that’s how stacked the festival will be. Click Rock The Bells for more information.

Enjoy the weekend!

The Day of Humps

About me section? Check. Contact information section? Check. Me always being awesome? Always and forever. My page is to my liking and…I…like…it?  <—- Not going  to lie, that phrase sounded better in my head.

It’s Hump Day! Who came up with that nickname? I don’t know how I feel calling it by that name/nickname. All my life, Wednesday has been THE name. I can’t just go around saying “It’s Hump Day”, the majority of my friends have sick minds so that’s trouble.

Anyway, it’s Hump Day. I’m in the mood for some…

Whenever I drink this, I think of my good friend Sarah. If it wasn’t for her, I would not have known about this greatness.

Random thought: A few moments ago I met somebody who I follow on Twitter. If we were living in Southern California, I doubt the encounter would’ve happen. Northern California = a small community. Since I’m on the subject of Twitter, follow me – GO DEEP IN MY MIND.

My mind? I don’t know what is wrong with it. I have to get ready for my session, my freestyle session. I’ve been challenged by my friend. He is way better than I am. I have my moments though, especially if I freestyle about nursery rhymes. YES, you read that right, nursery rhymes! You want to know how horrible I am?  Take a look at this, Allison Brie from Community.

Yup, I’m worse than her.

Happy Hump Day!

It’s The Freaking Weekend!!

Time to switch things up. Yesterday I went emotional (I’m sorry) and I promise it won’t happen again (or will it?).

Let’s begin shall we? Has a random question ever popped in your head? Literally, the first thing in the morning?  If you said no, you’re lying.

This was the question that popped in my head this morning…

*40 Sec mark is your goal, but watch the whole thing*

Weird, I know. It’s true though, I haven’t heard from Ja Rule in a long time.

!*!* IT’S THE WEEKEND *!*!*

Who is doing what this weekend? I haven’t checked the weather, but I’m pretty sure it won’t be nice here in the 916. A trip to the Bay Area might be in the works. If you have been reading my posts, you are probably assuming Berkeley or San Francisco. HA!, WRONG, fooled you. Santa Cruz might be in order if everything goes according to plan.

Plans, PLANS and PLANS! Everything in life needs a Plan and a “Plan B’. In this case, I really hope my “Plan B” gets action. I don’t mind trips to the Ocean, but I DO mind paying for gas. Gas is becoming a hassle again. I swear it was $2.50 yesterday…Yeah, I wish we were back in the good ol’ days for that reason alone.

OK, sorry, mind was wandering – PLAN B!

Is the suspense killing you? Ok, it’s nothing major (except for fans). Wait for it…. And it is….

Just missing the booze.

Yup, a Community marathon. Season Three came out earlier this week! I still find it sad that people don’t have love for Community. Unfortunately, smart shows rarely get love.

Changing subjects before I rant, yet again.

Breakdown so far:

Clip of the week: Dave Chappelle

Show of the week: Community

Food of the week: Old-School, Oreo’s

Song of the day………

Andre 3000, always doing his thing. Very talented person, he is going to playing Jimi Hendrix in a biopic. I still don’t know all the details in regards of the movie. I didn’t forget about B.o.B, he is still doing his thing – under the radar.

Enjoy the weekend my fellow humans!

Tearful Thursday, Life Must Go On.

You know what happens everyday? Losing people. It happens in a variety of ways: death, moving, break-up, etc. In this case, I’m losing a co-worker. JW, no need for the whole name, has decided it was time to move on to the next chapter in his life. We all have been in that situation, even if we didn’t want to (unfortunately it’s mandatory). I believe we all have at least one person that can help steer us in the right direction (that isn’t a family member). We have a person that we can talk to in the time of need (also not a family member). This is the second time in the past two years, maybe three, that I’ve gotten the short end of the stick. Despite my emotional issues on the subject, I know that they are happy (I know my former boss lady(ESP) is).

………Again with the initials!!!! I’m just protecting them, it’s called respect……

Mini breakdown:

JW: showed me the ropes of the manual labor in the Promo world. I was HIS outlet when he had to vent. He helped me out when I was in need. He was my opposite. You know the good and evil conscience that’s on your shoulder? He was the good one, by far!

ESP: THE  person that hired me in the media world. She also let me vent to her when I was going through a rough patch. Time and time again she checks up on me as I search for that elusive full-time job.

Both people are class-acts, helped me out when it wasn’t in the job description. I lost co-workers, but kept friends.

         Life will go on and they will always be here, I just have to keep reminding myself.

This is the part where I’m suppose to serenade you with pictures of them, but I’m not, won’t. Who knows, maybe in the future.

My current mood?

i'm in a glass case of emotions gif

I can never get tired of Anchorman.

This video is about a few years back. Me posting this defeats the purpose of this “Throwback Thursday” post. At the end of the day though, rules are made to be broken.

Somehow, someway I’m getting to that point this weekend haha.

The Weekend…One Day Away

Can you believe it? It is only Thursday. This week is going by slow,  nope, “at a snail’s pace” sounds  better. It didn’t help that I had yesterday AND Monday off. Monday was already scheduled, it’s my usual thing to do (I work crazy hours).

Yesterday, I went to Oakland (notice the Bay Area theme as of late?) to watch my Los Angeles  Angels of Anaheim (still hate the name) take on the Oakland A’s. I don’t know why, but, my Angels just can’t win (lost 9-8) in Oakland. It’s the House of Horrors for them.  For the record, I hate… DISLIKE A’s fans!!!. They are so horrible, but these are the same people I hang out with on Sunday’s during the Fall to watch the Raiders play. I don’t know what to think anymore.

I’m going to mix it up a bit, take it WWWWAAAAYYYYYY BACK!!!

Want a throwback drink?

When was the last time you had this? I never had it, way before my time. I do know people who have had it before. I expect them to text me, telling me about the good ol’ days!

And now, the video. This post has a Bay Area feel (I’m sorry, I’ll try to cut it down), so how about some Bay Area natives?

Stay thirsty my friends, it’s Thursday.

Follow me: Twitter

P.S: Shout out to the new partner in crime, The Red Head. Check out her blog, it’s a good read.

Throwback Thursday

The title speaks for itself. What I try to do is “Throwback” to MY generation. Almost every song was a good song back then (1990-2002(ish)). Artists were never really heard of (Craig Mack < Biggie Smalls) because they couldn’t stand out. Lastly you get the one hit wonder. The one hit wonder that had a funny song,  if anything (I thought it was funny).

Ladies and Gentlemen, your wonderful video:

When was the last time you heard this song? How about seen the video?

Did you spot the cameo appearance? I forgot all about that guy lol.

Until we meet again folks~!~!

Second Saturday, Sacramento Style

As the title suggests, this one is about Second Saturday. Meaning, the Second Saturday of each month, just in case you lost count. This past Saturday (and future Second Saturdays) is the Saturday of all Saturdays in Midtown. Streets are just filled with people, dogs on leashes, bars are filled (with nice drink specials at some places.)

Their was a time in which Second Saturday was in doubt. About two years ago, a shooting took place near a bar called Streets of London and the security of that Second Saturday was put into question. The day, no, the event was put into question. Their were some talks of it being cancelled. The following Second Saturdays were a bit down, safety was a concern. It’s like with all situations same you can’t let one bad apple ruin the tree (is that the right saying in this case?).

After a while though, Second Saturday returned back to normal.

Here is the breakdown of the greatness that is Second Saturday:

  • Quality friend time.
  • Quality drinking time.
  • Great people watching.
  • Street side entertainment.
  • Great weather.

Besides those four things, Second Saturday is about the mom and pop stores. These mom and pop stores showcases art & clothing. Also, Midtown offers some pretty good art galleries. If you are in Sacramento, just make sure that you are here during Second Saturday, lots of walking is in store for you.

As soon as the sun goes down and the families are gone, that’s when things gets more fun.

For me, it’s all about this…

     Unforutnately, I only drank two Blue Moons. I would’ve liked to drink more but I couldn’t for reasons I shall state later. I had a friend and a friend of a drink like crazy so that kept me entertained. Now that I’m thinking about it, Miss SeekingStyle still owes me a drink. I might have to cash in on that debt this weekend. Focus…FOCUS. Bars (most) are filled to capacity, drink specials are around if you find the right spot. Clubs have lines everywhere, sadly(not quite) we were denied access to one.  You may even get invited to a random house party, which I’ll explain later.

Second Saturday is one of those days that you can get away going out on your own. By doing that, you are guaranteed to run into somebody that you know. That is one of the positives about Sacramento, it has the big family vibe.

If you decide to take a trip to Sacramento, make sure it lands on a Second Saturday. It’s straight forward: nice weather, friends, people watching and side show entertainment.

What more can you ask for on a Saturday? (Besides BBQ)
