It’s been a weird couple months, full of family trips, work travel and deadlines. Looking forward to getting back to some projects and posting regularly.
Now that summer is in full swing, I’m using the crazy hot days to catch up on my Netflix queue. I somehow never saw Breaking Bad when it aired on AMC, just started the first season and it has me laughing every episode. I assumed it would be really dark, check it out if you’ve been on the fence like I was.
Like any other kid that grew up in the early 1990’s, I thought i knew most of the bands that were big in the grunge/punk scene. I heard of Bikini Kill but they didn’t play their music much on the radio in Beckley, WV. I watched The Punk Singer on Netflix and learned so much more about what was going on from the feminist perspective. Interesting documentary, and I had no idea who she is married to, yeah, a Beastie Boy. Go Me.
With the start of summer I always seem to get back into reading after a long hiatus. I don’t read the most intellectual books, a lot of scifi, thriller, and fantasy. I checked out Written in Red from Anne Bishop and enjoyed her writing style. Yes, there are vampires and werewolves, but it’s not a tween Twilight book. Sadly they don’t have a lot of her works on my local Library free ebooks site, so I’ll have to actually pay to read them. The price of entertainment.
Lastly if you’ve ever been to DC in the summer, you know it gets crazy humid. This time of year I’m focused on commuting/office survival. As in, don’t be the smelly person on the train at 7am. Here are my favorite products for keeping cool and not being the sweaty person at the office.
Spray deodorant is a must, during a hot summer day the whole body is sweating like crazy.
It’s summer dress season, and let’s be real, no one has a thigh gap. This keeps your skin happy and can double as a makeup primer. Creepy but true 🙂
I’ve been experimenting with some of the all natural deodorants, this one is refreshing and has a light citrus smell. Not sure if it can survive a summer workday, but its worked well on the weekends.
Take it easy folks,
