Bound and gagged

Oh Kimye, whatever were you thinking?  Have you seen the music video Bound 2? If you haven’t, worry not. Here you go
And if you have already watched it, do watch it again and marvel at the awfulness of it. You have the  stock videos/pictures of clouds, horses running even an eagle (probably flying away in fear); Kim K sexily draped on a motorbike; and the intermittent ‘uh huh, honeys’ that makes you want to tear your ears off. Kanye,Kanye why do you do this to yourself and more importantly us? The video, the song, the lyrics are all an assault on the viewer’s senses. And Kim why are you still with this man, you look ridiculous. Also, how much have you been photoshopped/airbrushed? and was a  body double used? Because, your waist is not that tiny.

Thank god this happened. James Franco and Seth Rogan saved the day by recreating the video, frame for frame. I could not stop giggling. Seth was a brilliant Kim, he got the facial expressions spot-on (though to be fair, she had one plastic expression throughout so it couldn’t have been too much work). James, I hope Kanye doesn’t come after you for this Be prepared for a twitter war, and if ever you  find yourself on stage and he is in the audience make sure you hold on to that mike; he is most likely to jump on stage, grab that mike from you and deliver a rant. Then again you could re-enact that as well. 



Hello, hello. It has been a while. Recently I had a bit of a health scare, they found a cyst on my spleen and surgery was a possibility. But, thankfully they did a bunch of tests and due to the small size of the cyst that came to naught and for the time being they are just going to monitor it. Thank god! 

I am very proud of myself because for the past ten days I have worked out every single day. This is my new addiction, Fitness Blender. You can choose workouts based on length of time, levels and which part of the body you want to work on. You have the option of Cardio, Pilates, HIIT and strength training among others. I enjoy trying out workouts and mixing it up, that way I don’t get bored. On other days I do yoga or go for a walk, I even did a couple of days of level 2 of the 30 Day Shred. It takes quite a bit of pushing  myself to do my workouts but I see results, not weight- loss wise, but I do feel stronger and can workout longer.

My new guilty pleasure is watching the Bravo channel reality shows. The Real Housewives of Miami, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, The  Real Housewives of Miami and The Rachel Zoe Project. Oh god, I just can’t help myself. They are so over the top, decadent, idiotic and mental and it is just too much fun to watch. I especially enjoy the fashion and plethora of designer shoes and bags.

However, to balance out the ridiculous tv shows I watch, I have been reading a lot of interesting and well-written books. Especially, a bunch of memoirs. Will save that for a later post.

I have learnt that often I have an opinion on things without having enough information on the subject. I have an opinion, just to have an opinion. And, I can be stubborn and condescending while putting my thoughts across. I need to stop doing that, because I could end up hurting people. As they say, acceptance is the first step towards recovery. So, I am going to be careful about that from now on. 

I am glad the weekend is here. Haven’t seen much of C lately, he has been terribly busy with work, sometimes coming home as late as 11 pm. So, tonight he should hopefully be back at the reasonable hour of 8 pm (fingers crossed) and we are going to eat some Chinese food and relax. Have a great weekend!



The mercury has dipped. Mornings are chilly and I huddle under the blanket drifting in and out of sleep. Before I realise it it is 9.30 a.m. Moments like this make me glad I do not have a job, sneaking in an extra hour or two in bed. I do feel guilty though and my sleep cycle has been completely thrown off track. I toss and turn in bed every night falling into a restless sleep and then cannot wake up in the morning. I wish I could be the kind of person who gets up each morning bright and early, ready to face the day. But the weather and my sleep routine certainly isn’t helping. Let’s see what summer brings.
