The first Attempt at a Star...

Sometimes you have to do things for yourself

SOMETIMES YOU HAVE TO DO THINGS FOR YOURSELF

 

#DailyMischief

 

When friends come to play in LA, I don’t always have the freedom to run around town with them. But when my friend Stiletto came to town all the way from Florida to introduce us to her beau (who’d never been to LA), I broke away for a little fun. Getting to Hollywood from the beach is no small task, even on a Wednesday at 1PM. It took me a solid hour to get there, and by the time I made it to the Roosevelt Hotel to meet them for lunch, they’d already sampled a handful of the craft cocktails at Public Bar. I sat down next to my friend, observed an interesting pink colored cocktail with a sprig of Rosemary sticking out of it in front of her, and after a hellacious drive, I said “I’ll have what she’s having.” It was called the Strawberry Fields with Russian Standard, Strawberry, Rosemary, lime and Ginger beer. I ordered it sans Ginger beer. And this is how my afternoon with them began.

With cocktails.

After lunch, we walked along Hollywood Boulevard and I grinned as I recalled the last time I was on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, with my sisters.

There is something about Hollywood that brings out the mischief in me. [you can tweet that]

So, when Stiletto suggested it was time I had my own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, I couldn’t argue.

I don’t know that one of those stars will ever be presented to me, but sometimes you have to do things for yourself.

In red lipstick.

And when the first attempt isn’t always the best.

The first Attempt at a Star...

You try, try again.

Cinemax’s new show “The Knick” about medicine and surgery at the Knickerbocker Hospital in New York City starring Clive Owen, is just, well, gross. It’s chilling, it’s gritty and it’s loathsome (if you’ve ever been around that kind of addiction as I have)… and yet… it’s fantastic (you can tweet that). Even with all its base goings-on, I couldn’t stop watching.

The series premiere opens with Dr. Thackery (Clive Owen) shooting cocaine between his toes as he rides to work in a horse drawn carriage. The gruesome medical practices, which were thought to be cutting edge procedures of modern medicine at the time, are played out in all their guts and glory (pun intended) for all to see in a room full of un-scrubbed, un-masked and presumably un-cleansed observers. Typical hurdles facing hospitals of the period are addressed, with talks about financial distress and the need for more surgeons. The Knick steps out on a limb, addressing the issues of segregation and discrimination with a new surgeon who, though well-educated, also happens to be black – unheard of in a white hospital circa. 1900.

I have been tweeting for months about the show via @lisajey because a friend of ours, the very talented Grainger Hines (follow him on Twitter), is one of the series regulars (playing wealthy financier Captain August Robertson), and we’ve been SUPER EXCITED for him and for the show’s premiere (which was this past Friday, August 8).

I was going about my merry tweeting business when one day I received notification that Cinemax followed me. I didn’t think too much of it because companies follow me all the time (and I don’t necessarily follow them back), but you know… this was CINEMAX.

Given my PR background, I initially thought Huh… someone’s figured out how awesome I am. And in this case I still didn’t automatically follow them back. I kinda figured they had their fair share of followers. I recall mentioning to M.C. Nugget (my beau, for you newbies) how they’d followed me, and how I found it a bit perplexing, but I said “What the heck. I’ll give them a follow, even though they don’t need me…”

Once I’d followed I realized the method to their lovely madness. They wanted to “direct message” (DM) me on Twitter, and they couldn’t do that unless I followed them. I’m glad I did. The direct message said they wanted to send me some swag from the show and they needed my address. I said HELL YEAH, and sent it over.

I expected a tee-shirt.

 

Here is what arrived:

 

The Knick's New Surgeon - ME

Now, before I launch into a diatribe about this little piece of marketing, let me deconstruct this personalized surgical kit for you (personalized because, you know, The Knick probably plans to add me to their surgical team). There are ointments, pills and tinctures (which made my car smell like Campho Phenique – even through the shipping materials), a bar of soap for scrubbing-in, surgical scissors, and that little gold thing that looks like a blood-letting device, along with some microscope slides to conduct my research. The gold blood-letter is a MEMORY DRIVE with posters, videos and more. As to the marketing behind this? GENIUS (end of diatribe).

Here are some of the tweets I shared as a result of this little surprise. If you aren’t seeing them via RSS or email, you can see everything the way it’s supposed to look here.

 

 

I’m so glad The Knick decided to add me as a new surgeon. I’m real good with scissors.

All I can say is I’m ready for my close up Mr. Soderbergh.

#MomFactor: This television show is most certainly not appropriate for the little ones, but it is a-okay for mommies who don’t have a weak stomach.

Single Moms: Don't EVER stop trying to find love!

Don’t ever stop trying

Don’t ever stop trying   

#DailyMischief

click to leave a reply

I have been a single mom for much of my mothering lifetime (aside from the 12 years I was married and living with my ex, of course, but I was single mommy before marriage, and obviously afterward again). I was the mommy, the daddy, coach, tutor, confidant, cop, friend and anyone or thing else my sons ever needed. If my kids needed a guy to tell goofy, silly potty-humor jokes to, well I was their guy… to a certain extent.

Because I can relate to the struggles all single moms face, I am sympathetic to them. So, I have a soft spot in my heart for struggling single mommies.

“So what,” you say, “Single moms are pretty much the majority these days, right? And there are tons of people supporting and helping single moms.”

You know, you’re right.

But you see, most people help single moms with advice on parenting, or paying the bills or finishing their college degree. All very worthy areas of need for these mommies. And I like to help out where I can in those areas on occasion as well.

But I don’t know anyone offering the kind of help I think is crucial for single moms.

HOW TO ENJOY BEING SINGLE AS A SINGLE MOM

Single moms must never forget that they are SINGLE. I want them to understand that just because their responsibilities at home quadrupled when they got a divorce, or their kid’s daddy left, or maybe even right when they gave birth, it does not mean they stopped being a red-blooded female with all the wants, desires and needs that go with the territory!

In the interest of helping a sistah out, I found and am sharing this check list I compiled before apps or the internet were readily available. Every single mom should have something like this at her fingertips, to ensure that one of the most under-served parts of her body (otherwise known as her libido) gets some attention, and STAT.

I’ve filled in the blanks, where you would normally keep your own information, but you can see, it’s not about having an actual check list, it’s about being organized, having essential information at your fingertips and always being ready with the supplies you need should the occasion arise.

Hot Moms Check List

These days, single mommy ladies gotta’ be friggin’ BOY SCOUTS if they ever want to get lucky and/or have an adult life. As they say, you’ve got to BE PREPARED.

Get those resources together… all of the people you can think of that will help you in your time of “need,” and that includes hot men (even if they’re just friends, because we all know hot men beget hot girls, which in turn attracts MORE HOT MEN). My personal fave from the check list? Jean Paul (tres Francais) the cute soccer coach.

Come on girls. Even if you have daughters, they’ve got coaches and friends with daddies who are single don’t they?! Be on the lookout!

Remember ladies: Every single one of you is HOT. We humans are all hot in one way or another. So embrace your hotness, and get busy getting lucky! You’ll be glad you did it for yourself, but believe it or not, your kids will benefit as well!

HAPPY UN-FRUSTRATED MOMMY = HAPPY, WELL-ADJUSTED KIDS.

I know that there are some days, weeks, months (maybe even whole years – really?) when the kids’ needs are simply too great, and you’re exhausted just trying to keep up.

Just don’t ever give up. Don’t ever stop trying.

You heard it here first.

AND INTRODUCING A NEW COMPONENT TO MY POSTS: THE #MOMFACTOR

The Mom Factor will be a brief synopsis of what each post means for single moms (or moms in general). Look for it.

#MomFactor: If your kids grow up to be in your shoes one day (though it’s not always ideal, it could happen), wouldn’t you want them to have a life and get out there and meet people? Teach your kids to value themselves. Teach them to respect themselves.

Things I enjoyed this week… ribbons, the government shut down and how to beat the TSA

 

My original Pink Ribbon

 

You know I couldn’t begin my “things I enjoyed” post with something other than this below. The pink ribbon below (for Breast Cancer Awareness) is my own original artwork, and appears on a winter scarf that is elegant, classy and comes in NINE COLORS. I chose charcoal grey.

You now have no excuse not to support a good cause, because all of these proceeds will go to FORCE (Facing our Risk of Cancer Empowered, which supports anyone afflicted by hereditary breast or ovarian cancer) – a very worthy cause. And the scarves are very affordable at $22.95 plus shipping/handling (shipping is more affordable the more you buy of course) - the link is included in the post below, but here it is again: http://www.zazzle.com/ms_cheevious_hereditary_breastcancer_scarf-256814118370194079. Sad to say that the “Sale” below, is over… But it’s still CHEAP:

This makes me wonder what kind of Wheaties this kid is eating.

The headline speaks for itself. This stuff is astounding to me!

Having fun with the Government Shutdown

I’m sharing this one now to illustrate a point. You guys, how come a couple of kids are so much smarter than our nation’s leaders? It’s extremely depressing.

An event that makes history such as the recent government shutdown, even if that something signifies a gross lack of intelligence, maturity and grasp of reality on the part of our congressional leaders, is something I couldn’t resist poking fun at.

I poked fun alright. BIG. You’ll find it in a post from earlier this week. I really enjoyed writing this, especially given the fact that the fiery arguments around the shut down ridiculously circle around a law people don’t like. It’s weird to me that no one seems to mind that the due process of government has been ignored… and they don’t seem to care what tactics are used as long as they get their way. But it’s okay. Those hundred-thousand or so furloughed workers probably needed a little vacation, right?

 

Don’t think I am not aware that two of the things to make this list are my own inventions. I know. There there. And if my post on the shut down wasn’t enough for you (above), there was also THIS from Charles P. Pierce at Esquire.com I truly enjoyed as well.

How to Beat the TSA

You had to know this was coming. For a price, you too can jump the line and be the KING (or Queen) of the TSA. Imagine that. It really is all about money. The article on Businessweek.com tells all.

Things We Enjoyed This Week: Shine, Steve Martin & Gold Grills

If you don’t have time to click and view a bunch of stinkin’ links and you have time for nothing else today, I would love for you to skip to the bottom to see a very important thing I enjoyed this week, from my friend Manolis: SHINE.

 

FIRST UP:

Steve Martin & the Steep Canyon Rangers with Edie Brickell

 

- Steve Martin & The Steep Canyon Rangers (and Edie Brickell)

I don’t remember if I told you that M.C. Nugget and I went to see Steve Martin and the Steep Canyon Rangers with special guest Edie Brickell at the Hollywood Bowl recently. We weren’t sure what to expect, but it was part of a “jazz” package I bought Nuggie for his birthday. It ended up being one of our favorite nights thus far in the series, though they’ve all been fab. I heard through a friend that the entire ensemble played on David Letterman that week, so I searched it out.  I was pleasantly surprised to find there is actually an album with both Steve & Edie called “Love Has Come for You.” It’s one of the things I enjoyed this week, and I think you may enjoy it too.

 

- Is gold in your grill a “thing” now?

You’d be surprised what I run across while sitting in front of the BIG SCREEN. This peeked my interest, but ACK. Who thinks GOLD on your teeth (or glitter, diamonds, whatever) is appealing?  To be honest, I think I’ve seen these, and my first thought was not Oh.My.God. How quickly can I get one of those gold caps on my front tooth? My first thought was Major tooth problem, and they couldn’t afford a porcelain cap, so they went for gold. Awe poor millionaire celebrity… And THEN I thought, Whew! So glad that is not me! I would DIE without my strong teeth, or my ability to eat my Cookies by Designcookies any time I want! If you do follow the link, you’ll see how WAY out of the loop I was on this. Who’dda thunk the bling-masters of the Universe would introduce bling for our teeth? But they did. And, well…let’s just say, a few people do NOT need to draw attention to their grill.  Me? I have a fabulous grill, if I do say.  So, after much thought… my dentist appointment is SET.

NOT.

 

And if you do NOTHING else… if you click NO OTHER LINKS this week, I would like you to click the following:

Shine by Manolis Paschalidis

 

- “Shine” by Manolis Paschalidis

Manolis Paschalidis is a guy I’ve come to know and love from Greece. GREECE… for all its beauty and culture is sadly the place where turmoil, violence and unrest has become the norm. I’m sad to say that GREECE puts the unemployment we’ve seen in America to shame. It’s the place where the term “down turn” glibly thrown around here in recent years, when used while talking to a Greek person, is an insult. It’s even more harsh than throwing salt onto a wound … it’s more like taking the steel spikes from a pair of stilettos like these:

 

Steel Spiked Heels

affixing them to a baseball bat, and bashing and thrashing those spikes into that wound. It’s just like THAT.

I’d wager a bet most Grecian people would happily swap hardships with any American.

Manolis and I have never met in person. Our relationship is quintessentially that which began and was cultivated solely through social media. We met on YouTube. When I started vlogging a couple of years ago, Manolis was one of the first to watch and comment. I know that if I ever post a video on YouTube, “M” as I’ve come to call him, is there soon after with a comment.

AND HE COMMENTS ON EVERY SINGLE PERSON’S VIDEOS HE FOLLOWS.

EVERY SINGLE DAY.

Let that sink in. He actually WATCHES each video in its entirety and comments. And he doesn’t just say something like “great video,” no.  Manolis will quote things you’ve said in the video and LOL it or talk about it. THIS IS EXTRAORDINARY. Because of this, he’s developed a very supportive and loyal following on YouTube and in other social media realms (of which, I am included). Check him out on YouTube. BUT NOT YET.  First check out his album “SHINE” and pick up a copy, or at least a single. Let me know you did in the comments. I’d appreciate it, and I know a guy over in Greece who will be blown away.

These are some of the things we enjoyed here at the Ms. Cheevious Chocolate Grotto this week. Enjoy your upcoming week people!  Don’t forget I am here blogging every single day on the #DailyMischief, and only one post a week goes to the subscription list (this one included). Nuggie is also providing a photo of his choosing every day for the #DailyNugget. You actually have to visit the site to read these posts, and believe me… you don’t want to miss them. Enjoy.

Love you people!!!! Mmmmmmmppphhhuuuhhh!!!!

Face Down the Grim Reaper With a Free Ah-Ha Moment

I’m willing to wager a bet that you love life. You’ll hang on to it like grim death. Most humans do. Damn straight. As a matter of fact, if you were to suddenly come face to face with the Grim Reaper, you might (if given the chance) unleash a can of whoop-ass on the dude.  It wouldn’t necessarily be a welcome meeting.

Granted, there are some who welcome the dark visitor… but at bestif they are ready for Mr. Reaper, they’re generally facing uniquely difficult daily physical challenges or struggles and are either exhausted from the uphill battle of vibrance and vitality and of maintaining quality of life,  or they are simply resigned to the Reaper’s inevitable visit after living longer than they ever imagined.

But mostly, we humans love life, and want to do what we can to keep on living – and living well.  Am I right?

What is the definition of “living well” if it is not to enjoy experiences we relish, people we cherish and a life that is not plagued with ailments, aches, pains and other physical struggles?  Ahhhh… to be able to get through life without any physical ailments or challenges.

But how can we maintain a grounded, joyful, refreshed and content physical existenceregardless of the other “stuff”? How can we feel cleansed and clear if we are dealing with daily aches, pains and physical setbacks?

One of the key solutions for me is by doing yoga or similar stretching exercises… basically unhurried, peaceful and deliberate stretches….

You could argue that I really get rejuvenated purely because I’m taking time out for me and showing my body love… and I may not argue with you – in which case, this post won’t mean a whole heck of a lot to you. But I seem to think what I am doing actually works.

The only way I’ve found sustained relief and a refreshed youthful feeling is by occasionally (or often) devoting just a little tender loving care to those muscles and bones through doing my own little yoga routine (also known as my yoga practice). It’s amazing how our bodies respond with even the littlest bit of TLC. 

YOGA & SIMILAR STRETCHING EXERCISES = LONGEVITY. PERIOD.

 

Screen Shot 2012-12-30 at 8.59.27 AM

This is precisely why I wrote my book, “Ahhhhhh…Haaaaaa Moments with Ms. Cheevious.” I put it together primarily for people who’ve never tried Yoga but were curious or intrigued.  That isn’t to say the routine in the book won’t challenge you if you’re a bonafide yogi… It will if you allow it! But I did it for newbies mostly so they could try it in a non-threatening environment, without the pressure to keep up (and not fall over!), or without all of the Ohms and Ahhhhs (not that there’s anything wrong with that) or spiritual overtones that they could face in a random yoga class.

When I first tried yoga (even just a few classes), I immediately felt my body refresh and rejuvenate. I fell in love with it and became an instructor in Aspen, Colorado.  I still love it. There is nothing like it. And it’s a great way to stay lean without damaging knees, hips or other joints. As my yoga instructor once said, “You do not have to do “Power Yoga” to lose weight or get fit with yoga. Haven’t you noticed? There generally are no overweight people who practice yoga regularly.” So why not give it a try? It’s even easier with my little e-book…

And… I am giving the e-book away for FREE to new subscribers to the weekly posts here on MsCheevious.com

(if you’re already a subscriber and would like a copy, just let us know, or simply buy a copy for less than a buck).

I’m also giving away FREE copies for iPAD or iPHONE to the first 50 people to request it! Just let us know here (FIRST COME, FIRST SERVED)!

It’s currently being sold for only .99 cents all over the internet for Kindle (if you don’t own a Kindle, you can get kindle for PC or Mac for free), Nook, iPad/iPhone and every other kind of e-Reader.

PLEASE FORWARD this to your friends to get a FREE copy of my book by SUBSCRIBING HERE.

And watch this video… You’ll get a kick out of seeing me FALL OVER with no shame.

 

Love you people!!!! Mmmmpppphhhhuuuhhhh!!!!

Acceptance is Key

I have a friend who took her two sons on a first-ever “just them” vacation recently. She says she learned two things: 1) She loves her kids deeply and loves being a mother (her sons are officially both adults now), but 2) One of them is not nice to her (as a matter of fact, he is borderline verbally abusive and downright disrespectful). When I heard this, I was a little shocked because really, the guy is a pretty cool dude. But apparently, he simply will not accept his mom for who she is and he is pretty damn insistent that unless she change some pretty significant things about who she is, they’ll never get along …

Suffice it to say, she’s not loving spending time with him. She even said “I just don’t like him.”

Know this: She was extremely upset and hurt over this. It really broke her up… because, well… how could a mother not like her own son? It made her feel embarrassed and ashamed. But in the end, she was pretty much “done.”

Does this make her a bad parent? I think not. We are not required to “like” everyone on this planet — even if it turns out to be one of our own offspring. It is sad to think it’s possible that after we pour so much love, blood, sweat and tears into someone, it is even remotely possible they could turn out to be a person we don’t want to invite to the next event. But you know, at some point we still have only ourselves to take to the grave … and we must stay true to *that* person.

Gone should be the days of squelching our true selves, sweeping our loves, interests and wishes under the carpet, or changing and adjusting goals or desires because someone else thinks we should (or they simply can’t handle the healthy choices we’ve made for ourselves). Rest assured, we are not talking about the need to abstain from alcohol or drugs around someone who struggles with substance abuse, or anything similar to that. This was a personality trait that one of her lovely boys would like to miraculously disappear. And it is a trait, (or a way about her, I suppose), that I happen to personally admire in this lady.

When all is said and done, I always come back to this:

CHOOSE TO SURROUND YOURSELF WITH PEOPLE WHO WANT TO BE AROUND YOU, AND WHO WILL WORK AS HARD AS YOU DO AT ACCEPTING OTHERS FOR WHO THEY ARE.

 

What are your thoughts on this?
I’ll see you next time my lovelies with something fun, fantastic and fully flirtatious!

 

Love you people!!!! Mmmmppphhhuuuhhh!!!
