Brief Rundown


Cocaine Princess here.

Another busy week and because of it I didn't have time and I apologize for not posting the rest of "The Vow Renewal Ceremony," installment which I all know you're dying to read about.

Here is a brief rundown of some of the things I did when I wasn't busy with fittings and shoots.

I was attacked by four mosquitoes. 3 of those nasty buggers went straight for my arm while the 4th, well let's just say he deserves a round of applause for biting me in all places on my ankle. It was so frigging annoying. I can't think of a worse place to scratch. 

I'm not into sports. The only time I watch anything sports related aside from WWE is The SuperBowl and that's only for the commercials and halftime show but seeing how I live in the "True North Strong and Free" I feel somewhat obligated to watch a hockey game from time to time.  Monday night was Game 6 of The Stanley Cup. New Jersey Devils at LA Kings. The series at that point was LA- had won 3 games and Devils had won 2 games. Towards the end of the game it became pretty exciting. The score was Devils:1 LA: 4. There was an empty net (Devils) and with less than 4 minutes left in the 3rd period, LA scored  2 goals and won the cup. Final Score: LA- 6 New Jersey- 1. It was a little disappointing that no Canadian team made it to the finals but I think Jay Leno summed it up perfectly during his monologue the other night.

"Congratulations to the LA Kings. They are the Stanley Cup Champions. First time in their 45 year history. You know this has really brought the city together when LA citizens and illegal immigrants can join together to celebrate a win by a bunch of Canadians. It's fantastic. And it's ironic-- the devils lost in the city of angels......" 

June 12th was "National Peanut Butter Cookie Day." I checked (my sweet tooth insisted!!) the pantry and all I could find were chocolate chip cookies. I was tempted to nibble on one but given the profession I'm in and constantly needing to watch my weight, I decided not to and instead ate an orange.

I woke up and after posting my Good Morning Tweet to all my lovely followers I proceeded with my usual 6 days a week morning routine: completed my workout and yoga and then headed on out for my morning run. On the way back from my run I was struck with the most horrible headache I've ever encountered. It came out of no where. I popped an Advil and took a mini nap. Upon waking up my headache was still alive, present and throbbing. You know that area in between your eyes? That's exactly where the throbbing was taking place.  If I didn't know any better I think a tiny invisible person with a hammer attached itself to my forehead and was busy pounding away and to make matters worse I could barely open my eyes on account of the pain being so intense. Sometime in the afternoon I sneezed and POOF just like that my headache disappeared. My lovelies, if you take anything from this delightful little story: Never underestimate the power of a sneeze. 

The doorbell rang. When I checked to see who it was, all I could see was the back of a woman as she walked away. I opened the door and posted on my mailbox was a
notification that there was an item that needed to be picked up at the post office 

because get this, "Owner Not Home. Signature Needed." Good Grief! The frigging post woman must have been in some damn rush for her to not even wait a few minutes for me to answer the door. The notification stated the item would be available after 5pm. I went to the post office at 5:01pm. Just kidding, it was closer to 6pm. I gave the notification to the teenager with the Justin Bieber haircut and from the stockroom he dragged out a huge box--"Play Skool Outdoor Adventure Lodge Play Center." Okay, this was definitely something I didn't order. When I looked at the shipping label on the side it was addressed under my neighbors name but it had my address. Whoever typed in the address was off by one digit. 

Have you heard about Nik Wallenda? He's planning a death defying walk tonight across Niagara Falls. Nik Wallenda -- a descendant of the famous Flying Wallendas circus family -- won his bid earlier this year, and after numerous appeals, to walk a tightrope across the Niagara Gorge. To finance his walk across the falls, Wallenda enlisted the ABC television network, which plans a prime-time reality show. Except now, ABC has wussed that the stunt can’t go forward unless Wallenda wears a safety harness. According to Nik he's nervous and he's afraid the device will be more of a hindrance than a help.

"The safety harness will make it a unique experience," he said. "It's almost a hindrance -- I am excited but I'm nervous. I am more nervous about the safety harness than any other part of the walk." 

Wallenda will attempt to traverse 550 metres, under the dark of night, in a stunt that has never before been attempted on live television.

Nik, I'll be watching and Good Luck!!


My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.

Whatever your plans are have a sensational weekend. ~x

Your life seems to be as uneventful as mine, you must be leaving out the good parts.

You leave out the good parts?

The tight rope across the falls was a bit of a joke. He had that harness, so what is the worst that could happen. If someone tries that sort of stunt, I want to be able to see him perish in the churning waters......sort of like watching 'Wipe Out' on ABC.

(what the heck is your twitter account name?)

He didn't want to want to wear the harness but the network ABC insisted. His next stunt is to tightrope across The Grand Canyon which I believe he'll be doing without the harness.
