I know I’ve been promising it for weeks, and my new Turkish travel blog is finally on its feet with a grand total of one post, but hey, it’s there!
You can now check out my adventures by going to http://turkdelights.wordpress.com
Now, some inquiring minds might ask, “Why do you need a separate blog for that? Why not post all your stories and pictures on this one?”
Well…good question. The short answer is that I really want to return this blog to its original intention, not a blog about me, but about my point of view on TV shows, movies, and silly things I find on the internet. I’d like to keep my personal life more in the background.
Also, the other big reason is that my family and some of my friends don’t know about this blog and I don’t want them to so I can be free to say whatever the hell I want. The travel blog is safe for grandma and grandpa. But you, my bloggy friend, are welcome on both! Just keep this blog a secret for me :) Oh, who am I kidding? I’ll get found out if I’m not already. Also, just so you don’t get confused, I refer to my husband as “Q” on Turkish Delights because 1. That’s his real nickname, and 2. A few members of our family don’t know that we’re married yet, and I don’t want a bunch of angry emails about why they weren’t invited, and then I’ll have to explain that there wasn’t a wedding ceremony…blah blah blah.
In other news, I’m still up to my neck in work, so those Weeds recaps are going to be extra late. Good news is we scored our first client over here! They’re a body-building website that needs a re-design for their streaming video players, and we’re also going to sell them space on our servers. Woot! Work never stops.
What’s been keeping me going with all this non-stop work is music. I’ve been thinking about starting a new section at bottom of my posts to discuss what I can’t stop listening to that week, but we’ll see if I can keep that up or not. This week I cannot stop listening to Adele. Just when I thought these young Brit soul singers were becoming a dime a dozen, Adele came along and proved me wrong. Girl has got some pipes! Her first album, 19, blows her contemporaries like Amy Winehouse and Duffy out of the water. I have to wait till hubby wakes up and shows me how to hack back into youtube (yes, it’s blocked here) and I’ll post some videos so you can see what I mean. I can’t get her single “Chasing Pavements” out of my head, and I think she wrote “My Same” about me and hubby. Just to prove what a music schizo I am, the other album I can’t stop listening to is Pimp to Eat by the Analog Brothers. Kool Keith with Ice-T…it just doesn’t get better than that!
If you like these you should also look up her song “Hometown Glory” on youtube as well. I couldn’t find a version that would allow me to embed it.
I would post some Analog Brothers, but I don’t want to drive you all away. If you’re feeling extra freaky, look them up.
