Restroom Rules from Beezy

Beezy is a pretty calm person. He's laid back. Doesn't panic or stress out about things like I do. He takes things as it comes. However... there's one thing that will make him enter into a rant and it's bathroom etiquette. He's ranted on this issue more than once, more than twice. The third time I had to sit and listen to him over a restroom rant, I knew it needed to be a blog post. So without further ado...

Beezy's Restroom Rules
1. If you go into a restroom with three urinals/stalls, you do not go into the middle one. Why? Because it's an unwritten rule. There needs to be a one stall buffer. If you go into the middle stall you've just rendered the other stalls useless.
2. If you finish using the bathroom and there's other people in there, wash your hands! There's people out there who don't wash their hands. Ok, fine but if there's other people in that restroom and you know they know you're in there. WASH YOUR HANDS. You don't have to use soap but at least throw some water on them.
3. If you're going into the bathroom knowing that you're going to release Mount St. Helene's. Can we get a courtesy flush? No one wants to hear your machine gun action into the toilet.
4. In the event that you have to use a urinal and there is no buffer. DO NOT look to the left or right. Who cares if it's the most boring wall you've ever looked at in the world, you do not look to the sides. No one wants to have a conversation while you are using the urinal.
5. This is not your office. You don't sit on the toilet in a public restroom having a full on conversation. No one wants to know who your lunch date is later in the day. We don't want to hear your business deals. We also don't want to hear you arguing with your spouse. This is a safe zone. Some of us need to concentrate.
 And there you have it. The rules of the restroom by Beezy.

Weekend Review

Easter weekend has come and gone. Before I tell you all about Easter 2014, let's throw it back to Easter 1986. When I was almost two years old. Aw... baby JMO.
Clearly I may have been a little spoiled. I had those bears in my bedroom till I was in high school! And before you ask my hair was naturally blonde and somewhat curly. And yes... that is a dress I'm wearing. Now onto Easter 2014.

My mom and I have been exchanging baskets since I can remember. Once I moved out to California at the end of 2012, we kept exchanging baskets. We've been using the same baskets for years but mine was left in West Virginia. This year when my mom sent me my Easter goodies, she included a felt basket so now I've got a basket again! Yay! This year my mom didn't disappoint. She sent an entire box of treats.

It was filled with candy (that I don't need), dvds and some books that I've been wanting to read. Prodigy (in the Legend series and the next Stuart Woods book). Then Beezy surprised me with an Easter basket as well! It was filled with new Nike socks and new shoes on top! They are too cute. Their blue with a cheetah print woven in the background of the blue. They feel really great on my feet which is a big deal.
I spent Saturday making at Beezy's request Raspberry cupcakes with vanilla frosting. I topped them off with some pretzel M&Ms. Since I took them to one of his family events and he has family that's allergic to peanuts.


The Easter bunny also paid a visit to Beezy and brought him a little something from bunny land. Remember how I mentioned he's really into those Game of Thrones Funko Pop toys? Well the Easter bunny brought him a rare one from Canada and some of the new mini figurines that they've come out with recently. He also got a back scratcher, gun, mints, etc.
And that's a rap on Easter 2014!

My Birthday Wish List

I'm turning the dirty 30 in just a few short months. To be precise it's only 63 days away. It's a big birthday and as of right now I have absolutely no idea how I'm going to celebrate it. I keep thinking about having these grandiose plans to send out my 20's and start my 30's but I just don't know what to do. I just got back from Puerto Rico and a month after my Birthday I'm spending a week in Hawaii. Then I'm going to Las Vegas in September. See... it's hard to figure out what to do. I know my mom is going to come out and visit. I can't wait for that! I'm sure we'll get into something fun in CA. 

As for the gifts... I'm not one to specifically say, "Oh my gosh I need a gift, buy it!" But some of these little gems have been on my want list for awhile. 

1. A nice DSLR camera. 
Canon EOS Rebel T3i 18 MP CMOS Digital SLR Camera and DIGIC 4 Imaging with EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens
2. A bicycle with a basket.
Huffy 26'' Women's Cruiser Bike. Now it needs a basket.
3. Patio Furniture.
I'm a fan of the wicker. What can I say.
4. A new bag. Because clearly who doesn't love a good bag?
Louis Vuitton Galets Monogram Antheia Leather Ixia PM Bag
5. I want to visit the famous Madonna Inn! Their rooms are fun, unique and maybe a little cheesy but fun! It's located about 4 hours south of Sacramento in San Louis Obispo.

I'm sure there will be other things I can think of because seriously who doesn't love thinking of things that they'd love to have. But for now this is my want list for the Birthday!

It's Thursday and that can only mean one thing... it's Theater Thursday. This week I'm talking about another documentary that I recently viewed... Mike Tyson's: The Undisputed Truth.
 I've always had a curiosity with Mike Tyson. I'm not a huge fan of boxing and the extent of my knowledge in the sport is pretty limited ie. the Rocky movies. I'm thinking my interest with Tyson goes back to the day of when he bite a man's ear off in the ring. So when I heard they filmed his Broadway show Undisputed Truth into a documentary I knew I had to see it. I thought it was really good and I totally recommend watching it. 
Depending on how much you already know about Mike Tyson (if you are like me not a lot then), then you may know about the main things. The mainstream information: heavyweight champion of the world, was famously married to an actress whom claims he beat her, bite a mans ear off while fighting in the ring, cameo in Hangover. Now here's some stuff you may not know: loves pigeons, spent three years in prison for a crime he swears he didn't commit, only has a grade school education, is a recovering drug addict, lost a child, had millions but lost it all. The list can go on and on. The one thing I noticed in his life that's a recurring theme... He never gave up.
He's always starred at adversary. He went to rehab and has been sober for years. He tries to honor the memory of the child he lost. He's been working with educators to try and better himself and educate himself since he didn't do that when he was younger. One thing about Mike is he's kind of hard to understand. He doesn't have the greatest speech. But you have to hand it to him, he's working on it. In the documentary he stands there and talks to the audience the entire time. He shares stories on his life, he talks about the good times and the bad but the one thing he talks about is his how he works with a speech therapist working on his speech. 
I really liked this documentary. It made me more interested in boxing and since the only thing I've ever liked about it has been those Rocky movies that says a lot. So give this one a try.
