No Tarts

Did I tell you guys that I signed up for a tart making class that was supposed to take place tonight, but got cancelled due to low enrollment?! I was so bummed out! I signed up at Culver City adult school months ago and had been looking forward to making "professional looking tarts" ever since! I had visions of impressing y'all at the next social gathering with my tarts! Well, I got the disappointing news on my voice mail the other day, and when I called back to double check, for I gathered there MUST be a mistake, the lady on the other end said, "Cristina Park, yes it was cancelled." I was baffled at first because I had not given her my name. I guess no one else cares too much about making tarts around here!

Jen and I went to the LA Convention Center today to pick up our bibs and goodie bags for the LA Marathon. Getting your bib and seeing your name on it sure makes things "real." kind of scary...

I’ve decided that I need to cut back on the time I sit on my ass and watch mindless tee-vee. Let me first tell you that I love reality TV. Some say that all that “reality” is pre-scripted, but heck if I care…Yours truly is hooked. Last month or so, I have spent endless, and when I say endless, I mean amazing amount of hours watching Joe Millionaire, American Idol, and The Bachlorette. It’s funny how the producers try to s t r e t c h and exploit the popularity of their shows as long as they can; there is all that anticipation for the final show, then there is a “men tell all” show, a cheesy recap episode, and then, even a “what happened afterward?”- the aftermath show. God, and to think I watched all of them..sometimes even twice (!!!) on Jen's replay TV.

I need to read, write, and expand my pea size brain. Maybe, somehow, this blog will keep me in check. I don’t’ know how, but that was just a passing thought.

So I am finally writing my first “blog. The idea has been in my mind for awhile but I am a big wimp and the idea of sharing my life with the world was a scary thought. That is, until tonight, when I came to the realization that no one would be reading my blogs except a limited few, mainly close friends and family. This crazy thought of having an online diary was sparked by my friend Susan. For the past few weeks, since I heard that she had her own site, I have been religiously checking her site for updates. I have laughed along with her as she accounts her daily blunders (boy, are there plenty!), and felt a multitude of other emotions. And as many in my life know, since my life pretty much parallels Susan’s, it will come to no shock that I have decided to start one as well. I don’t know what is “blog” road will lead. Possibly, I will love it. Maybe it will become a chore and I will abandon it as quickly as my many other pursuits. Hmm…
