Well this week was quite eventful, thusly so, I was not able to share my insights here. To give a brief overview:
Monday: I arrived home from work to have no electricity (and therefore no Internet, no food, no heat, no anything, for what ended up being more than 24 hours.
Tuesday: Perhaps it was the extreme cold that enveloped my house caused by the happenings on Monday, but I ended up getting some sort of stomach flu virus issue that (almost) inhibited me from participating in society as a normal person.
Thursday: I watched the second half of the second season of HBO’s GIRLS and was a bit unconvinced. I am a new-comer to the show and I am not positive if I understand all of the hype. As a person that may or may not fit into the demographic of people that I am assuming this show is aimed for, I can for one say that I find it extremely difficult to identify with any of the characters. For one, I do not feel that chronic irresponsibility, lack of competence to complete even the most mundane of tasks and an inability to be able to depend on oneself, either financially or emotionally, is representative of any voice of the generation of mid-20-somethings. In fact, I find it kind of offensive. Yes, we may be a coddled generation that “came-of-age” during the modern days’ most dire financial crisis, but if anything, I think that this made most people wake-up and become that much more motivated, driven and focused to not become a statistic of Wall Street’s stupidity, but well, those are just my 2-cents of the day. I know that it is completely my decision to tune-in to anything, and if I didn’t like or agree with the show that I could have just stopped watching it, but as I mentioned, I guess I am a band-wagon jumper and I wanted to see what all the hype was about. Will I tune into Season 3? Probably. But, just because unlike the characters on that show, I am not a quitter, and when I start something, you can bet your ass that I Will Finish It.
Friday: My man came back from his week-long business trip (yes, I suffered through Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and their aforementioned (unfortunate) happenings alone) and we went for our Friday Night Pizza (yes, I capitalize because yes, it is a Thing and therefore, yes, it is complete acceptable to treat it as a Proper Noun) where I ordered the same thing I order every single time I go out for pizza. The Pizza Parmesana, which I may add, is pretty much the closest thing to a slice of heaven on earth. Delicious slices of grilled eggplant, fresh mozzarella cheese, oregano, basil and crumbles of freshly crumbled Parmesan cheese. Perfection.
Now, it is fully the weekend, and I am fully in cozy mood after my sub-par week. I hope you will now understand my absence of presence, which I think I have justified to the fullest extent possible.
Next week, I will be in travel. To where? Well, stop back by cozy teacups nation for updates and clues of where these teacups will be cozying up.
