What does my Oct 27 Cancer Horoscope MEAN?

This is an amusing horoscope for me since I’ve been trying to get out of my comfort zone. I took two workout classes last week (FUN but sore), have been looking to finally date again and am figuring out my next steps.  But I don’t know it seems as if my theory of ‘bad things happen in three’ has been shot to hell since it’s been a constant barrage of bad luck for me the last few years. It’s hard to not get frustrated when I’m working hard, trying to stay on the straight and narrow living my moral life when my path keeps getting landmines. I try to stay positive but with every failure that brings me to my knees I find it harder to get up. Is life telling me being a good person is for suckers and for me to be a cutthroat opportunist? I don’t know but something has to change since for every step forward I take I get pushed back 10! <sigh> Anyone else feeling discouraged?

YOUR FRISKYSCOPES FOR THE WEEK OF OCTOBER 27-NOVEMBER 2, 2014

Your Friskyscopes For The Week Of August 25-31, 2014

Cancer (June 21-July 22): Your traditional side will be giving the side-eye to your latest attempts at trying out a new routine and idealogy. While you’re enjoying the adventure, of course there is that side of you that thinks you’re selling out—but what’s wrong with feeling happy? Holding yourself down to old customs wasn’t working, so relinquish the guilt and feel a new morning.

Cancer horoscope October 20 2014

It’s another week and am happy the weekend was over. Went to the 2014 LA Fashion Show where in general being around tall skinny models makes me feel like a lump or sasquatch or an old hag so decided I’m going to try on a new ‘me’. So I colored my hair Auburn .. yes I went RED dammit. I’m going to stand out in a crowd for once! I thought well in for a penny in for a pound so I thought I’d try a new style .. well an old style. I used one of the products from the 2014 Fall Allure Beauty Box I got this year and straighten my hair. It turned out really good. I have to say if I use the box again I’ll use it just to relax my curls since they looked lovely with long tendrils! (I’ll post photos later).

Of course I have my mind on a new job/more money since I need to pay some bills, get a new car (well new to me) and take a much needed vacation. I’m looking now for something in December once my project with USC is done .. unless I get a FT job offer (fingers crossed) with the University!

CancerYour Friskyscopes For The Week Of August 25-31, 2014 (June 21-July 22): Praising your lucky stars and feeling gloriously beautiful will be your vibe this week.

Trust in your confidence, because all you need is a big roar, as the lovers around you will easily dance if you want them to.

She’s stuck straddling the old culture she’s trying to modernize at home with her working-class family and the modern world she’s trying to embrace in her professional career.

Toy Story is ready to scare

tonight at @ABC with their second holiday special! This year’s christmas is all about dinosaurs and looks great. Now you may think … ehh saw the movie and they can’t surpass but I have to say that Pixar has gone out of their way to create not only a cohesive design, story and look but also make sure it’s captured the heart of fans with a core toy love for fans of the films.

I saw the special last year and it was not only good but danged scary so have high hopes for the latest (destined to be a holiday classic) 30 minute toon. If you don’t believe check out my interviews with cast and creative team on @youtube at San Diego Comic Con 2014 #SDCC

Build-Your-Own Pizza Shops Hosts October 9 Grand Opening to Benefit LA Animal Services

Los Angeles, CA (Sept 29, 2014) – PizzaRev continues to feed LA’s demand for better, faster pizza with its newest location in Koreatown, located at 3150 Wilshire Blvd. The growing build-your-own pizza shop will host a “Pizzas for a Purpose” fundraising event at the new location’s Grand Opening, October 9, where guests are invited to “pay-what-they-want” for a custom-built, personal-sized pizza.

Finally, each personally-sized masterpiece is completed with favorite selections from an array of artisanal cheeses and 30+ fresh ingredients, ranging from traditional favorites like pepperoni and ground beef to premium selections including sweet fennel sausage, Kalamata olives, and fresh-picked basil and arugula.  Each pizza, no matter how many ingredients are selected, costs just $7.99.

Free Fridays: The Cutting Edge, Rio 2 Sky Soccer, The Paradise

It’s Barnes and Nobles Free Fridays with ebook, app AND videos!  Thanks B&N for this special October 10th treat with extra videos and DC Comics Fall TV series in honor of New York Comic Con! I have to say that The Flash first episode was well done just the right amount of backstory (for newbies) and action for fans of the genre.  I’m finding Gotham to be a bit boring! It might be that you never get a chance to miss Batman (I just can’t escape the character from animated series to movies he’s freaking everywhere on 24 hours!). Arrow looks like it’s returning to the heart stopping great action from the first season after veering off into a love story (blech). Constantine is still a mystery for me even after interviewing the cast (youtube) at SDCC don’t know much about the series.

Am loving Flash

I’ve said it before and am saying it again DC Comics makes good TV! With the premier episode of the hotly anticipated new series on the #CW it was worth every moment. They had the perfect amount of backstory (his power, family, motivation) for those new to the speedy world without boring us comic book people. The pace is good and it makes sense. I wish that some other series would take notes ABC Shield (2nd season and back to their old trick of uneven pacing .. urgh).

I’m especially impressed with the casual diverse casting that reflects the society I live and work in that pays homage to the comic but doesn’t allow it to define the characters 100% ABC (TALKING TO YOU AGAIN) about Once Upon a Time that feels like Snow White is more than a character name! Dammit I’m one (of many) Black, Brown, Red, Yellow and Beige that love fairy tales and want to see us in more than a supporting role. (stepping off soapbox) back to my new favorite show Flash. One of storylines am looking to explore is the Dad-Triangle where I’m sure his loyalties will be tested as time goes on (it’s been a while since I read the comics so am excited to see what directions the plot will take).

I have to say that it makes sense to combine Tuesday night CW with the creaking horse of Supernatural (urghh so lacking in diversity .. really angels can’t be diverse either???) with a show that has fanboys and fangirls excited enough to stay around. I suppose it’s a good match (they are both fantasy) but the tone it looks like this season for SN is a little too dark for Flash fans. I’ll wait for the numbers.

Check out my YouTube interview with creative team and cast at the 2014 Paleyfest.

What did you think of the premier episode? Who are you geek crushing on? Leave a comment below ….
