The Summer of Anaconda



Cocaine Princess here.

How's everyone's summer so far?  I've been having a blast with my friends. We've been taking advantage of our warm weather as much as we can because we all know up here in the Great White North summers don't last very long for us.  Soon the sun will be setting by 4:45 in the afternoon & temperatures will be bone chilling.

I can't believe how quickly summer is passing by. Fall is definitely around the corner----

-The days are getting shorter. 
-Endless back to school sales flyers in the mailbox .
-For the past 2 weeks people have been asking me about my Labor Day plans


****
Now I'm going to change the subject and go from writing about the weather to writing about music--  

Has anyone seen Nicki Minaj's new video, Anaconda?

There was an interesting discussion the other day regarding the video. Some are saying, the video is empowering to women while others are saying, had it been a male singer the video would be labeled degrading to women.

What do you think?


Me? I'm just wondering what Sir Mix-A Lot thinks?

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.

Whatever your plans are have an awesome weekend.~x

Alcohol and The Flu




Cocaine Princess here.

I apologize for not posting last week. I was sick.....the kind of sick that hits you all at once. There's never a good time to be ill but it sure sucks during the summer. I suppose I would have recovered sooner had I not gone into the city last weekend to party-- hey it was Caribana weekend! And to make matters worse I may have guzzled back a drink......or two. And oh boy, what a stupid thing that was.

I made a metal note to myself the next day: Never again will I drink alcohol when I'm sick.

According to sister that falls under the category of common sense.


Although I'm not able to keep solid foods down yet, my coughing and sneezing is lessening but my head still feels like it's in a vice grip.

*Sigh*  I'm slowly on the mend.

Mistakes, Opportunites, Signs.........




Cocaine Princess here.

I feel as if I've been neglecting this little awesome blog of mine, certainly not on purpose of course. I blame it on the season of summer and let me tell you it's been one hell of a summer so far! I've been spending a lot of time with my friends going out here and there which is why I haven't been posting my usual spectacular Friday entries that you all have become so use to. Not to worry, Canadian summers are very short.

**** 

A couple of sleepless nights ago I was channel surfing when I came across "Oprah's Master Class." I've never been a fan of Ms.Winfrey however I am a fan of who the guest was in that particular episode, Vanessa Williams.  Towards the end of the show Vanessa said something that touched me:

"I always ask for guidance, show me the way, Give me a sign, I'll follow it. Just show it to me and it always comes, it always shows up when you are aware, when you look for it, even when you're not looking for it........."

Those of you who know me are well aware what a big believer I am in receiving signs and messages from the universe. 


As the show closed Oprah asked the following question that made me think, hmm....


"Are mistakes really mistakes, or just opportunities to move us into another direction?"


What do you think?

"You Don't Need To Famous Or Jesus To Do This"


Cocaine Princess here.

I've had another exhausting week. It's been one of those weeks where as soon as I stepped foot inside my house the first thing I did was fling my bra off and utter the word, ahh..........

I'll be back next Friday with a brand spanking new post. I promise.

In the meantime, I came across this article on the web: You've heard of people posting "selfies" on Twitter and Instagram, right? Well now you can eat your own face every morning with the toaster selfie and you don't have to be famous or Jesus to do it! 


"The customizable kitchen appliance, which has been developed by a US firm (of course), allows you to burn a picture of yourself onto a slice. You send a selfie to the Vermont-based Burnt Impressions and have your personal mugshot toaster within a week.  The company isn't just limited to personalized photos either. Burnt Impressions will also create a personalized toaster for you. Clip art. Line art. Logos. 

  The company also sells glow-in-the-dark refrigerator magnets featuring real slices of Jesus toast cast in acrylic (because why not)."

And by the way, the original Jesus toasters are still available as well as The Virgin Mary Toaster and sell for $75.00. Click here to place your order. Hey it's never to early to start shopping for Christmas gifts!

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.

Whatever your plans are have a fun weekend.....and why not indulge in a drinkie or two, after-all it is patio season.~x

Mick Jagger's Curse


 

Cocaine Princess here.

This past weekend I went to the track and I must say I had one hell of a time. I'll be blogging about that next week (with pictures too!) I would have posted it this week but below is how I've been feeling these past few days:



In World Cup news, did any of you happen to watch the game between Brazil & Germany? For sure I thought Brazil was going to win and advance to the finals. Good Lord was I ever wrong! To say the Germans slaughtered the Brazilians would be a severe understatement.

In 45 minutes, Germany scored 5 goals. 4 of them were scored in 6 mins--- the fastest in World Cup history. I, along with the tens of other millions who were watching was stunned. Brazil finally managed to score a goal. (I think only because at that point The Germans must have felt sorry for them) Germany won 7~1. Ouch!! Brazil played beyond poorly. A bunch of 3 year olds could have probably played better! Hmm, me thinks the game was fixed............. or perhaps Mick Jagger cursed the game. 


This Sunday is the final game-- Argentina vs. Germany.

May the best team win.

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.

Whatever your plans are have a winning weekend.~x

The Psychic Turtle


 ****Updated: The Turtle was correct-- Brazil won against Colombia 2-1. While Germany beat France 1-0. Brazil next faces Germany****

Cocaine Princess here.

It's the quarter finals in the World Cup. Aside from France playing against Germany, today Brazil faces off with Colombia. 

I'm torn as to who I should be cheering for. I've always been a Team Brazil supporter but my background is Colombian. I feel I should be chanting GO COLOMBIA GO!  but Colombia hasn't played in the past four World Cup games, so for them to come this far says a lot about the team. Part of me feels I should be supporting and rooting for the Motherland.
 
Brazil or Colombia?

Oh, woe is me.  

  
Meanwhile, "Cabecao the turtle, who is thought to predict World Cup outcomes, gives his pick for the quarter-final match between Brazil and Colombia on Friday. At his sanctuary in the Brazilian state of Bahia, Cabecao uses sardine selection to predict who will advance to the semi-final. After much deliberation, the turtle backs Brazil, much to the delight of the crowd."




We shall see if the Psychic Turtle's prediction is correct.

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.
 
Happy 4th Of July to my American Lovelies.

Whatever your plans are have a fun, safe & patriotic weekend. ~x

Red & White 2014



 

Cocaine Princess here.

School is officially out today and that means one thing--- The Long Weekend is upon us, at least it is up here for us. 


It's Canada's Day Long Weekend-- a federal statutory holiday celebrating the anniversary of the July 1, 1867, enactment of the British North America Act, 1867. 


Yes, my loyal readers this great country I live in turns 147 this up~coming Tuesday.
For reasons unknown to me, Canada is one of those countries that often gets made fun of and let's not forget about the endless stereotypes, such as......



And this....


And the most popular stereotype: 


There's no way I could post a Canada Day entry without mentioning Rob Ford, after~ all he's the one person who destroyed every single Canadian stereotype. Job well done!



Jokes aside, Canada is a pretty awesome country. Our milk comes in bags, our money is colorful, we have a Tim Horton's on practically every corner and yesterday a mass wedding took place at Toronto's Casa Loma that attracted as many as 120 couples from around the world. (In July 2005 Canada became the fourth country in the world, and the first country outside Europe, to legalize same-sex marriage nationwide) Congratulations and much love and luck to you all.

****
I realize this is un-related to this post but I had to mention the World Cup. Joining Spain and England is now Italy who were recently eliminated from the Cup after losing to Uruguay 0~1.

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.

Whatever your plans are have a fantastic last week of June. ~x

The Clean Short Version & The Explict Long Version


Cocaine Princess here.

When it comes to neighbood issues I've never been one to get involved. I'm that one individual that prefers to remain neutral. Our little community is surrounded by acres and acres of farm land and most of the issues revolve around: Neighborhood VS the Developers. In other words whenever a big shot property developer arrives in town it's usually because the company which he works for is looking to build something commercial on the empty lots. For instance, a little over 2 years ago a Walmart Superstore was going to built. In less than a blink of an eye a petition began to circle all the homes. 99.9% of the time the property developers always win. They always win because City Hall always sides with them. City Hall sees growth and development as a positive thing but for some reason our neighborhood doesn’t see it that way. Anyways as I was saying, I like to remain neutral........until now that is. This time I'm siding with the residents and here's why: For the past several weeks and pretty much at all hours of the day truckers have been using our little country road and words can’t express how annoying it’s become. Do you have any idea what it’s like to be sandwiched in between 2 large transport trucks? Each time I am I fear I’m going to be flattened like a pancake. If that’s not bad enough, the other day I was driving in the opposite direction when a trucker decided to overtake the car in front of him.  How stupid is that?! It’s no joke when I say I could have been killed. They’ve been hogging the road causing traffic to be backed up especially during the mornings. What usually takes 5 minutes to get onto the major highway now takes 20. The quote some of the residents and I’d just like to say this is the clean short version “Why can’t these damn truckers use the main roads?!” And now for the explicit long version: “What the f*ck is wrong with these God D*mn truckers?! They need to stay the F*ck away from this area and go back to using the God D*mn main road!” Like myself, several others have come close to death. A petition was sent to City Hall this week and it’s safe to say that every person in my hood didn’t hesitate to sign it. Hopefully City Hall will side with us in not allowing the truckers to use the back road. If not, well all I can ask from you is that you say a little prayer for me. And oh yeah, if I don’t post anything next Friday it’s because a psycho truck driver flattened me and my car.

****

How many have you been watching The World Cup? Can you say Holy Crap! Both Team Spain and Team England are out of the game. What a blow to the English but what’s even more shocking is Team Colombia has more points than Team Brazil. It’ll be interesting to see what other odd and unexpected things happen in the days ahead. 

****

Last but certainly not least, tomorrow Summer officially arrives. Ahh....


****
 
Speaking of music, those of you who know me are well aware I LOVE music, and there are certain songs that just sound a little better during certain times of the year. When it comes to Euro & Freestyle (old school & new), there’s no better time to listen to it during those hot, summer days at full blast with the top down or on a rooftop patio with a drinkie in your hands surrounded by good friends.

My loyal and dear readers, it's finally Friday.

Whatever your plans are have a sweet first weekend of summer.~x
