Girl Talk Thursday-Booze

Mommy Melee started Girl Talk Thursday. Go show her some love and check out Mr. Linky.

Booze, booze and more booze is the topic this week.

I am not a big drinker, that isn’t to say that I don’t drink.  Oh how I love me some vodka with cranberry and lemon drops and a few others that I’m too sober to name right now.  I’ve had a glass of wine or two that I really enjoyed.  However I hate beer, I haven’t found one that I want to take more then a sip of.

I don’t like to drink hard stuff at home, I prefer a half empty bar (I don’t like big crowds).  At home I can never get the drinks to taste right.  We have wine at the house every once in a while but I’d rather have wine at a restaurant.  I’m just weird like that.

Since I’ve been pregnant and am now breastfeeding I haven’t had any booze in over a year.  Alcohol has never been that important to me.  I didn’t have my first taste till after my 21st birthday and wouldn’t know that I like vodka with cranberry if it weren’t for my buddy Jack.

Jack lived in my spare room for a while and we would go downtown during the week when his favorite bar was nice and quiet.  We’d have a drink or 12, play some pool and chat with the regulars.  It was fun.  Once Jack moved out I didn’t have a desire to keep going out on my own, that seemed like it would be no fun.  Besides who was going to make sure I got home safely and watch Eurotrip with me for the 150th time.  We have watched that movie so many times we know just were to fast forward because those parts just aren’t funny enough.

Girl Talk Thursday-Make up

This week we are talking about our make up regimen.

Before I had Lily I had a very simple routine and I did it everyday.  I had used Bare Minerals for about two years and I loved the lightness of it.  I used the base foundation kind of thing, the Mineral Veil finishing powder, light blush, eye shadow, liner and mascara.  It sounds like a lot but it only took about 7 minutes or less.

Since Lily was born I think I’ve worn make up twice.   I just don’t have time to deal with it.

Girl Talk Thursday-TV

Up until I left my ex I had cable and the first thing I did when I got home was turn the TV on, even if it was just background noise. Every night we would veg in front of the TV or our computer screens with the TV playing something that would catch our interests for a second.

When I was single for a year and a half I couldn’t afford cable and didn’t care about the 1 channel I could get with bunny ears so I just watched movies and read a lot.

After Waldo and I got together we got cable for a couple of months but it was a waste of money. We watched the occasional food network show and the same stuff we had been downloading, watching on or on DVD.  So we canceled it.  I do miss Good Eats, Alton Brown is my favorite.  It works out better this way though.

I do love a few shows.  Bones is one of my favorite things to watch.  I really enjoyed Angel.  Do you see a connection? I also love The Office (UK and US versions), 30 Rock, Scrubs, Friends and we’re giving Park and Recs a chance.

I just found this British show Green Wing on Hulu and I love it, it cracks me up even though I don’t understand everything they say.  There are actually a few BBC shows that I love, Coupling was my first it was the best, Black Books, Spaced and The IT Crowd to name a few.

I never got into reality shows too much.  I did really like the first few seasons of Real World and Road Rules, now they are just a bunch of punk ass kids.  Man I’m old.  🙂  I do really like Hell’s Kitchen and Kitchen Nightmares.  I watched a season or two of America’s Next Top Model but lost interest in it.

I watch a lot of hulu while I’m nursing.

This is a clip from The IT Crowd.  When we first started watching it my Hubby was doing Internet Tech Support, which made this all that much funnier.

Girl Talk Thursday – lingerie

Mommy Melee started Girl Talk Thursday.  Go show her some love and check out Mr. Linky.  This week we are talking about lingerie.

In all honesty I don’t own much lingerie.   I have  a corset but I’ve never worn it.  I feel silly in it.  I know that sound weird and I’m not a prude but I feel weird in it.  I guess it because I’m a plump girl and I have some body image issues but those are usually few and far between.

Another reason I don’t own much lingerie is because Waldo doesn’t care about it.  I usually sleep in yoga pants and no top.  Its much easier to nurse Lily laying down topless and I don’t leak (never have) so I don’t need to sleep with breast pads.  Although even before Lily I slept dressed just like this, I like the skin to skin contact when we snuggle and a shirt just gets in the way.  🙂

I did a search for fun and these were my favs.

Girl Talk Thursday- $50.00

Mommy Melee started Girl Talk Thursday.  Go show her some love and check out Mr. Linky.

This week Mommy Melee wants to know what we would do with $50.00 guilt free.

My feet are looking totally unloved what with not being able to reach them while pregnant and now not having time to scrub them properly I would love a pedicure.  Oh yes I would love to have someone massage and scrub my feet, oh and paint my toe nails a great shade of red or purple.

Darn now I totally need to figure out how to come up with some money.  🙂
