Traveling is a Slog

Slog

Traveling these days is a slog.

It’s hard work because you can spend hours at the airport or sitting on a runway.

And the worst part of traveling is the amount of work it requires just to get to the destination.

It’s not fun unless you have a private plane.

Then life is amazing!

There are so many famous people on Snapchat traveling by private plane these days.

It’s funny to see half famous TV actors and actresses who are not as wealthy as they think they are secure a lower class private plane.

Yes.  There are lower class private planes.  The planes these actors rent are kind of like a discount airline.  They are small, sardine like, with low lustre leather and not as luxurious as some others planes in the jet-setting universe.

As far as private planes go they are probably from the 1980s.

However, the more money you have… the better the private jet.

Let’s look at Kevin Hart.  He is one of those wealthy, comedic actors who slogs away at his craft, but I only see him on Snapchat working out and going to Vegas on his spectacular private jet.

The jet he rents is top notch.  Or,  maybe it’s his own?  Not sure.  But the plane has beautiful seats, lounging bedseats, wood accents and lots of plated fruit.  His plane is pretty awesome!

So, if I have to slog away traveling these days I want to hop on Kevin Hart’s private jet.

 

Does a Job Exit require a Press Release?

Does a job exit require a press release nowadays?

When a person quits a job why does it have to be the most dramatic exit ever?

Hey…I’m going to put out a press release and say how important I am and how indispensable I am to the world.

A lot of famous people do this and people in the finance, entertainment and tech world. There are many examples out in the world. No. Not at the local level like leaving a job at a supermarket. But, famous people do it all the time. Look at the guy who left Hamilton? I am sure there is a press release out there somewhere extolling his contribution to the world and life itself.

Dear World,

I am a very important person. But I have decided in the best interest for myself and my loved ones that I am quitting a job to relax and spend my days freely.

Eh..I hope this doesn’t come across as bragging and boastful. But, I am ok with that. I have made my way. I want to retire early and enjoy my fruits of labor. Also, I was getting a little bored and just wanted to regroup and seek out new employment. It will happen soon. I promise.

In the meantime, I am leaving you with a press release to magnify my accomplishments and so you can understand my struggle.

You see. My life is very important. I am a very important person with important things to do and work is just getting in my way.

So, please accept my job press release as who I am.  I mean…it’s my life. OK?

Signed,

A person who has a press release to leave a job.

Oh. Ok.

Perplexed about some towels

via Daily Prompt: Perplexed

Perplexed
I am perplexed as to why Chrissy Teigen  hangs out in a towel while she’s at home.

I am not sure why she chooses to dress this way.

It’s quite uncomfortable to walk around in just a towel.  For one, a towel always needs readjusting and a strong tuck in to stay on the body.  Second, a towel is usually heavy.

I am sure Chrissy Teigen and John Legend’s towels are those Egyptian cotton towels that are sturdy and plush.  Also, Chrissy probably only bought bath sheets.  Those are the longer towels that are more expensive than a regular bath towel.

Yes.  This is why I am perplexed today.

 

 

Behati ..did you have that baby yet? Adam is waiting.

Ok. 

Has Behati Prinsloo had her baby?

It seems like it has been enough time .  I mean we have been through summer and a season of The Voice.

It is time for the baby!   I just want to see the pictures of Adam Levine cradling his newborn on his bare chest. Because you know he won’t let this opportunity pass by since he loves to be shirtless.  Check out his Instagram.

My guess … like every other famous male whose wife is expecting..is  that Adam wants the first photo of his baby  with him alone.

Screw Behati.

She will be in the background with billowy layers  to cover her post pregnancy bump.

This is my guess and I will confirm once the baby has finally arrived to earth.

 

 

Behati Prinsloo aka Mrs. Adam Levine

EXCLUSIVE: Adam Levine & Pregnant Behati Prinsloo and Ryan Seacrest at Nobu in Malibu

Behati Prinsloo is looking fantastic during her seemingly long pregnancy.

It must be hard for her to keep looking so Victoria Secret-y…but she’s rocking that top bun like it’s no ones business.

I love how Adam and Behati are color coordinating their looks together.

He has a brown and black palm leaf motif on his pants.

She has a black and brown leopard print on her bag.

It looks good together! 

But…I am sure Adam demanded the “couple color coordination”..because he’s Adam Levine the rockstar.

Anyways.  It’s good to see Behati out and about.

We’ve been without any good famous preggo sightings lately.

Behati….I am sorry I have been neglecting blogging about your pregnancy.  You deserve the same attention. 

I was kind of tired writing about famous preggos like Chrissy and Anne.  They were everywhere all the time rocking their bellies.

 You have been somewhat absent.  So my interest has waned a little.

But, it looks like you are almost nearing the end soon… so I will try to fit in some time from now until then to notice your beautiful unicorn mama pregnancy.

 

Jason Mraz at The Stone Pony

Jason Mraz performed at the Stone Pony in Asbury Park, NJ a few days ago.

I was lucky enough to secure some tickets to go see him at this iconic venue.

First off… the Stone Pony is the place where Bruce Springsteen began his career. 

When you think of the Stone Pony..you think of Bruce.

When I first got tickets to go see Jason Mraz  I was secretly hoping that maybe Bruce would show up and do a surprise set with Grammy award winner Mraz.

But, after noticing on his Bruce’s Instagram he was playing in Europe it wasn’t going to happen. But…if Bruce was in town I bet he would’ve stopped by.  He’s done it before. 

Then I thought of Jon Bon Jovi, another local New Jerseyan.  He  would stop by for sure. He’s not doing much lately.  But no.  He was too busy as well. 

I guess I was kind of naive to think that these mega stars would just drop by and sing a song or two.  But a girl can dream.

But…back to the concert.

I was super excited to hear Jason Mraz  play his solo acoustic show. It was just him, a stool, his guitar and nothing else. He was trying out some new material which did not disappoint.  His new songs were amazing.  

His set mixed in old songs like “The Remedy”, “Beautiful Mess”, “93 million miles” along with some new catchy songs.

All his new material had the essence of Mraz from his early days.  I really loved an untitled song “If you think you’ve seen it all”.  It was perfect.

Even though it was an acoustic night all his new songs were musically mature.

The reason I am saying that is because all his new music left me humming the tunes well after the show ended.  All I  wanted to do was go out and listen to all those new songs on Spotify.  

Sadly, we will have to wait for the release.

It is clear that this might be one of his best albums to come.

The vibe of the Stone Pony.  

Even though the venue was small and intimate the tone of the evening was energetic.

I had been at the Stone Pony before and it is a dive bar.  Dark, cramped, full of annoying people.

Jason’s show was wall to wall… elbow to elbow.. packed full of concertgoers.

Jason came out at the beginning of his set and even quipped that he was a little worried about the fire hazard of having so many people in the venue. Ha! Luckily I was standing near some exits.  

But even I knew the odds were against us if an emergency happened.  There were SO many people crammed in there.

The average age of Mraz concertgoers were about 35-40 year olds mixed with some 20 something millennials.  

Some 35-40 year olds brought along their toddlers/children …of course…wearing cute Mraz fedoras.  

The twenty something millennials spent most of the night snapchatting and going to the bathroom. 

I had the lovely experience of being jammed up next to a group of 20 something sorority girls who were there only to hear Jason’s famous songs like “Lucky”, or “I’m Yours”, etc.

Sadly…those songs were usually at the end of the show so I knew it was going to be a long night.

The sorority girls did not disappoint in their impatience.   

When I first arrived at the venue the line was out the door.  I knew my hopes of getting a front row spot were impossible.  After cramming myself through the already crowded venue I was able to position myself in front of the club’s sound board.  It was about 7 pm  and I was in the “last row.”

But others who must have known the show started at 8 pm came later and filled in behind me.  I  was no longer in the back row.  I was now about 4 rows in.

The four rows in didn’t make much of a difference since most of the large,  tall men with their dates were blocking any reasonable view of the stage.  

Waiting in a crowded space for an hour might seem like fun…. but it’s challenging.

 

But maybe we should blame it on the venue.

The venue space was tight, hot and full of different age groups.  

Of course the millennials would be a little more distracted with their snapchats and texting.

The older crowd goers wanted to savor every moment and reflect back on certain songs that Mraz pulled out of his career catalog. 

One particular song he played “Too much Food” he flubbed the lyrics… but that’s what made the concert so special and real.  It was very humbling.

Also, he mentioned it was the second time he had played that song in 10 years.  But it sounded so fresh and current…it just fit in perfectly.

Imagine  Jason …on stage, strumming his guitar, the crowd happy, singing and learning some of the new songs with him,  too.  Mraz welcomed with open arms the crowd singing.  This was how the whole night was from start to finish.  A big sing fest.

It was a great party that was filled with happy vibes.  

There were some quiet moments when he played his new stuff but the songs had catchy beats and lyrics that were very easy to enjoy.

As the night went on Jason played nonstop for two hours. He played hits like “I’m Yours” , “You and I”, “Lucky” , “3 things” , “The Woman I love” and some new songs “Chocolate”, “Making it up” , “Work in Progress”, “Got their own sh**” to  name a few.  He even fit in the Mr. Rogers neighborhood song. 

It’s clear that his maturity as a musician has come to a grand peak.  Jason is an amazing entertainer and so gifted it was pretty exciting to be with him in such an intimate venue like the Stone Pony. 

Certainly a once in a lifetime experience.

If you want to get a taste of the night I am sure there are some YouTube videos floating around somewhere.  

 A night of joyful singing and drunk sorority girls.

 

 

 

 

Princess Kate attended a family soiree

kate-william-435

Dearest Kate,

I see that you had some family business to take care of recently with your hubby. 

I know it’s hard to keep impressing the Queen Mama.. but it was a celebration in her honor so you had no other choice.

But, it looks like you were doing fine.

Your dress was lovely.

Your hat was divine.

The small clutch matched your shoes perfectly.

So far..things were going really great at this event.

But, I am not sure what you can do with your tired looking eyes.

I blame that on being a mama.

Glad to see your doing well.

Signed,

A concerned friend.

 

Chrissy Teigen’s lost sparkle

I am going to go out on a limb and say that Chrissy Teigen has lost her eye sparkle.

Instead, she has a far away worried look in her eyes.  

There’s a name for it.

It’s called the “my life is over now.. I have to worry 24/7 about being a mama now.”  

All mother’s have it… unless they are heavily involved with nannies.  

That means anything she does in the public eye ..like half naked selfies and wearing braless tops will eventually effect her daughter.

So…. half dressed Chrissy is now a sad mama who likes to dine out a lot at restaurants.

I think it’s sad.

Where’s my preggo fun Chrissy?

 

Duchess Kate has been busy!

Dearest Kate,

I am so glad you made it back from your whirlwind India/Bhutan trip with hubby.

I loved seeing all your wardrobe changes. 

And the colors you wore were amazing!

I know it must have been hot and uncomfortable…. because having a good hair day in those conditions was challenging.

You mixed it up though.  A good hair braid does wonders!

I also see that you have been entertaining a little more in your home.

The Obamas looked very comfortable sitting on your couch.

You even had Prince Harry visit.  

Also, it was really thoughtful of you to put your son in a robe/smoking jacket.

That was definitely a good idea since it keeps him on the path of  becoming “a man of leisure.”

Oh well.

I am sure you want to relax and watch some TV now.

Talk to you soon.

Signed,

A concerned friend.
