I know. Yabba Dabba Do? Seriously, Tanya? Are you nuts? Nope. Maybe? Or I’m just in a Yabba Dabba Do kind of mood. You know – the kind where you’re feeling a bit goofy and loving it? So you just roll in your Yabba Dabba Do-ness and share all the things you’re loving, enjoying, secretly desiring/hating and so on.
A Few Things On My Mind
My mind is a dangerous place and should have its own warning. Danger to all ye who enter. We frankly don’t recommend you do and have issued a travel advisory warning against visiting Tanya’s mind. It’s frankly weird.
Okay. Maybe not super weird. But a little weird … as all good mind’s are.
Yo, I’m Reading Again
Say it with me, please: Hallelujah and Praise the Book Gods. Seriously. SAY. IT. My book slump began almost a year ago and it’s been hard because reading is my favorite pastime and my happy place, but I found little joy in my beloved books last year. It’s like I lost my inner Jane Austen, Harry Potter and all things murdery. But in March I felt a bit more like me and even more so last month, although I’m not fully back to devouring everything in sight but more like inconsistent binge reading. I’ll voraciously read for a few days and then not even want to open a book for a week. But I’ll take it.
Umm … one weird thing is that I’ve been re-reading, a lot. Discovery of Witches and The Red Sparrow Trilogy which together add up to a little over 2,000 words (well, I skimmed most of Kremlin’s Candidate as I forgot I did not like it). I wasn’t kidding when I said I was a re-reader. And yes, I am reading new-to-me books too. Ya know, so I can reread them later. 😀
Sandra Oh is Oh So Amazing
I was never a big Grey’s Anatomy fan but I always liked Sandra Oh. Now I’m a little bit in love with her. She’s so freaking amazing in Killing Eve. It’s kind of weird and delicious and wonderful. I love its proudly female focus and gaze. The women are smart, sexy, obsessive, angry, devious and kick-ass. The kind of things men are almost always allowed to be and women are not, especially more than one woman at a time.
What’s Irritating The Piss Out of Me
I’ve avoiding anything political because almost everything political makes my eye twitch.
- Avengers: Endgame Runtime of 3 Hours. So add in previews and you’re looking at 3 1/2 hours. People, I have a teeny tiny bladder. This is not good. Not good at all. Honestly, I’d skip it but my BFF is adamant that we go and teeny tiny bladder is not an acceptable excuse. So this is literally going to irritate the piss out of me and I may need to wear an adult diaper. (Didn’t go this weekend but heard it’s worth it but still concerned at the runtime. Seriously small bladder here!)
- Dry Skin. It’s been horrible lately. I typically have dry skin year-round but it’s oddly really bad during that awkward period of not Winter but not really Spring either. Ya know, 80 one day and then 60 the next. If you have a lotion recommendation (for both body and/or face), please share!
- Swimsuits. I hate you. Enuff said.
What I’m Loving Right Now
Juice by Lizzo is on repeat these days. Heard you say I’m not the baddest bitch, ya lie.
Amen, sister. Amen.
Happy Monday Everyone
Blerch, right? It’s Monday and ain’t no one happy about it. But this guy. This guy can help get you through Monday with a smile.
So now you tell me what’s on your mind! Are you in a yabba dabba do state of mind? Or is that just a Tanya thing?
