What I’m Watching: Scandal on ABC

I have been so excited  for four months to see Scandal with Kerry Washington.   Since,  I first heard the premise of the show and the fact that the beautiful and talented  Kerry Washington was leading the cast which includes Guillermo Diaz (LOVE) I knew I had to watch.  However, I do have another motive for watching the show…She is a crisis communicator!!!!!  I have always admired those with the job of  making you see a new side to what is there.  I hope to do more in that capacity one day…I do a bit of it at work now, but it does not really count, because I work for an organization with an incredible mission.

But, just to get myself prepared for the future I am currently in grad school pursuing my Masters Degree to enhance my understanding of the theories behind communication and this show so far has hit on a couple…I can’t wait see more!

The first episode was good!  It had a few of those awkward camera moments; that most new shows have but I am sure it will find its way soon.  Did I mention this is a Shonda Rhimes project…it is, so you know it has to be the BUSINESS.  Also, the fashions should be pretty sweet too for the young professional sect.  FYI…Kerry gives great insight on the show and who she wears on Twitter her handle is @kerrywashington.

Another notable tidbit I found out about this show is, Kerry Washington is the first black female lead in primetime on a major network in like THREE DECADES!!

That is exciting for many reasons and it is even more exciting because it is a good show because time is too precious to be watching crap…just saying.

Scandal is on ABC, Thursday night at 10pm EST after Grey’s Anatomy.  Check it out.

The Andy Chronicles: Meet Andy

My puppy-duppy-luppy, my Andito-blito-splito, my buddy, my sheeky!  All the names I call him and so many more… I am surprised he actually knows real name…Andy.  Andy is my foster pup which I have had for almost a year.  He is what I have deemed a Shwestie (Shih-tzu/Westie).  He is almost 3-years old (his birthday is May 30).  This little guy is amazing.  I took him in for temporary foster but he has yet to find a home and we have become practically inseparable.  He is the opposite of everything I wanted in a dog petite, white, and a shedder.

I wear lots of black so this is a problem and I hate having to vacuum 2-3 times a week…uggh!  But, he is worth it. Andy is a character all his own.  He loves the ladies and children but is deathly terrified of men and has space issues with other dogs (they can’t get too close).  This comes from his past of being abused and crated with several other dogs in a puppy mill. 

Other than those few things he is great!!  He adores kids…not teenage boys.  Loves girls and women.  He is house trained and loves being the man of the house.  He has two besties; his cousins Bean and Tank 55 and 65 pound boxers, respectively.  Andy is around 18 pounds. 

He is such a character, I have decided to introduce him to the blog and start his own segment, The Andy Chronicles.

Stay tuned!

Vitamins

I use to take vitamins faith fully but for the past few months I have stopped, because I got tired of swallowing pills.  I was taking a multi for women, a biotin, and a stress b complex.  My doctor recommended the stress b complex and the multi with a certain amount of folic acid…for reproduction health(like I need that) and I chose the biotin because stress was taking a toll on my skin.  I think they may have been working… but now I’m not sure.

With my crazy schedule and heavy stress load I have been exhausted, temperamental, and brain-dead so I am starting to think I need to give vitamins a go again.

However, I recently read that vitamins don’t even help and are a complete waste; yet vitamins are a booming business.

Do you take vitamins and why?  And are they helping?
