Hurricane Earl Hits Puerto Rico :(

Hurricane Earl officially hit the Promise Land last night at 8pm. Around 100,000 people are without electricity at the moment. I believe the hurricane is on it's way out now (Thank God). I have tons of family in Puerto Rico but their homes are ok because they have strong foundations. Anyone who has been to Puerto Rico knows that the majority of the homes there are not sturdy and can be damaged by heavy winds and flooding :(

I checked Red Cross this morning to see if they set up a disaster relief fund but they haven't yet. I will keep you posted!

True Blood Recap: RIP Russell & Standing O for Sam Merlotte

The reigning King Russell passed away last night. Eric convinced him he can walk in daylight if he drank Sookie's fairy blood (I don't believe Eric is going to die too. That's just my guess). Needless to say, Russell fried like a rotisserie chicken when he stepped into the sun.

On a much lighter note, Sam Merlotte was an insane ranting lunatic last night. I may re-watch the episode just to see that scene. LMAO.

The season finale of True Blood is on Sunday, Sept. 12th.

If You Thought G Chat was Overwheliming...Introducing Gmail Phone (OYE!)

I'm definitely a Google lover; it's the only search engine I use, all my emails are gmail based and *clears throat* I use Blogger.

This idea concerns me. I haven't logged into my gmail yet but I'm scared. I can't stand G Chat because everyone who has my email address can chat with me...and NOW they can call me too. QUE FUE?!

The Situation Made $5 Million in 2010

Jersey Shore star Mike aka The Situation reported brought home $5 million this year. I remember back in the day reality tv stars would be on the show and then go home to their normal lives. Now, they're our television stars. I'm not sure how he made that much but I'm sure it has to do with appearances, endorsements deals, etc.

I have to admit. I find The Situation and the rest of the Jersey Shore cast extremely entertaining. Can't blame them. GO BIG OR GO HOME!

Yoga Saved My Life...

In college, I found out I had an issue with my heart rate & I was experiencing extreme heart palpitations almost daily. I was on medication for almost 4 years but I didn't want to take pills every single day for the rest of my life. Yoga basically saved my life. It taught me how to naturally keep my heart rate at a normal pace by using breathing techniques. Plus, my body has never looked better!

Give it a try!

I guess you can't really blame the people at Facebook. They are the pioneers of this whole social network craze. According to HuffingonPost.com, Facebook will be adding a local check in feature...basically Foursquare on Facebook. The Feature will be called Facebook Places.

I have to admit. I am kinda for this. I refused to sign up for Foursquare because I feel like it's waaaaay too much. I already have a FB, Twitter and a blog. Plus, I can't stand signing up for shit and getting ridiculous spam mail.

Generation Deaf: 1 Out of 5 Teens Experiences Hearing Loss

We all recognize these ^^^^^^^^^

The louder the better? Not the best idea unless you want hearing aids by age 35. Unfortunately, my generation has been bombarded with phenomenons like car systems, surround sound, iPods, etc. All in which are terrible for your ears. I admit myself that I love loud music but I'm aware of the damage it can bring on because I used to work in Healthcare Public Affairs. I listen to the TV so low that people always ask me "You can really hear that?" Most people find out they can't control themselves when it comes to volume. We are so used to everything being loud. This has got to change. I think its to the point where decibel levels should be regulated. Ever hear your ears ringing? That's a sign of hearing loss. Change your habits today *spirit fingers*

True Blood Recap: The Official Takeover

Last night's episode was the best episode ever! The beginning of the episode starts after Talbot (Russell's Boyfriend) gets murdered by Eric. We all knew Russell wasn't going to let that slide.

Meanwhile, Jason Stackhouse's floozy is still getting him into trouble. I think she is a werewolf. This is just my prediction. She seems to have an unbreakable bond with her ex-boyfriend and I think that's the reason.

Bill went into "Sookie Land" so to speak. He emerged into the fairy like world that we saw Sookie in last episode and Bill found out what Sookie is. Of course, they did not spill the beans this episode but hopefully we will find out in the next one.

Poor poor Tara. This girl can't seem to get away from turmoil. The vampire she attempted to kill in Russell's home did not die (what a surprise lol). He appeared at her job and she wasn't scared. I think she figures at this point what does she have to lose. Jason Stackhouse appeared on the scene (he seems to be a cowboy now with his new gun) and shoots the vamp...but I'm sure he'll reappear.

The leader of the VRA (Vampire Rights Association) paid a visit to Eric and gave him permission to kill Russell. Basically, that means a war is about to start. YES! The end of the episode was the kicker. The VRA leader was watching the news on her plane ride back home and suddenly...Russell appeared on the screen and ripped out the newscasters spine. He then announced to the world that the Vampires are taking over and will dispose of the human race. *Cat jumps out bag* It's no longer a dilemma for just The South. The world knows!

*Side Note: I admire the writers of True Blood for incorporating homosexuality into the plot for both men & women. I think more and more shows will do the same. It's 2010. It should not be "taboo" anymore and I think shows like True Blood help people see that. *tips hat*

My Take on This Fantasia Situation...My Prayers are with Her

I developed a soft spot for Fantasia after watching her Bio-Film (I think it was on Lifetime?). The girl has been through a lot in her life and now this...too sad :(

I don't know the entire story but apparently Fantasia's boyfriend is married & his wife isn't exactly happy about the situation. According to People Magazine, you can sue someone for "homewrecking" in the state of North Carolina. In my opinion, you can't wreck a home of a separated married couple. I mean, they don't even live in the same house. *sigh*

My prayers go out to Fantasia & her family. She's strong and will get through this without a doubt.

Police Charge a Man for Marinating a Cat & Preparing to Eat It :(

This is disturbing. It makes me very angry. Police pulled over Gary Korkuc for running a stop sign in Buffalo, NY. The police officers on the scene heard something coming from the trunk and discovered a kitty cat marinating in oil and hot pepper (beyond evil). When asked about the cat, Korkuc claimed the cat was selfish & greedy. I guess his way of punishing the cat is to eat it? :(

True Blood Recap: When in Doubt...Seduce & Pounce

I think Eric ^^^^^ surprised everyone the most this episode. He has a master plan to take over the King's reign and apparently he will do anything to make sure this happens. Eric offered to keep the King's boyfriend entertained while the King tracked down Sookie. The King's boyfriend made Eric strip (which was kinda exciting because all the men on the show have amazing bodies) but then Eric began to seduce him...I was a bit puzzled to say the least. I knew this had to be part of his plan. Before "doing the deed" Eric kills the boyfriend instead...creating a huge war.

Bill & Sookie are finally back together. The sex scene at the end was uber intense. I guess "once you go Vamp you don't go back?"

*Side Note: If I was Sookie, I would have pounced on Alcide (The Werewolf) in that one scene. *fans self*

5 Reasons to Burn a Bridge

I know what people are going to say...It's NEVER a good idea to burn a bridge. I totally agree *but* to what extent? Sometimes it's best to burn a bridge if the path isn't worth crossing again. It's a trial and error process for me. If the other side of the bridge causes stress and negativity, I think it's best to *splashes kerosene & lights match*

1) Threatens Career

Being a Public Relations Rep isn't easy and reputation is everything. Unfortunately, everyone knows that LOL. Once I hear those words "I will destroy you" that's my cue to exit and stay as far away from that person as possible. I keep a tight circle and my work speaks for itself so it doesn't worry me. It's the thought that someone would actually go to that extent that ruffles my feathers a bit. It takes a certain person (of ignorance) to say this so I would say its safe to light that match! LOL

2) Pathological Liar

Oh we all know these ding dongs. It seems like they lie so much that they seem to believe their own lies (AND no I am not just talking about Men). I've had to burn bridges with female friends who can't seem to tell the truth about anything. A relationship of any kind is built on trust so when someone constantly lies (even about small things) I feel deceived. It's extremely hurtful and difficult to deal with this type of person. I think some people are actually addicted to lying. You find them lying about what they had for breakfast (no lol). Definitely give a person a few chances but if it seems like a pattern of fictional folk talks...ummm yeah light that match!

3) Finders Keepers

Hahaha you'd be surprised who is trying to get you for your shit (and for all sorts of reasons). I think this one is self explanatory. The usual excuse is "I had every intention of giving it back." ....light that match.

4) Troubled Surroundings

We all have those certain people in our lives that we adore to death but they are always getting into trouble. This one is really hard because it's not what the person is doing directly to me but more about what could happen if I hang out with them. Don't cut this person off harshly. Let them know the logistics. "It's simply not safe to be around your crazy ass"...light that match

5) Merry-Go-Round of Disrespect

There are certain people who can't seem to grasp the concept of respect. It usually irks me because I want to be treated the same way I treat that particular person. Obviously that isn't the case in every situation. Constantly Putting You Down, Over the Top Rudeness (Hostile attitude about everything), Pompous (I'm better than you) etc.

You find yourself saying "Why am I nice to this person when he/she is such an asshole to me?"

^^^^^^^^If you've asked yourself the above question more than 3 times...its safe to light that match.

In Conclusion: Burning a Bridge sometimes = Cutting Your Losses. Life is too short. Don't waste it on people who are simply not worth your time. You're better than that ;)
