I have been getting a lot of spam comments lately. I wonder if it is because I hadn't updated in a long time.

yo, read this!

I know I have been gone for awhile. My new job has LJ blocked, so I don't have the time to post like I used to.

Anyway, I am currently reading Let Me In other wise known as Let the Right One In by John Ajvide Lindovist and it is great. Like, I have missed my subway stop twice because I was so into the book. You should read it.
yesterday I junked my car (car free!), found out I fit in all my prom dresses from high school and bought three super awesome vintage hats. Life is pretty rocking right now!

April Book Reviews

As March was full of Animal/vegan books, I took a break from them in April and focused on some fiction I had been meaning to read (mainly so I could watch the movies about book #1 and #2).

life changes

It is official. I will be leaving my current job in New Brunswick at the end of May and will become fully employed in Brooklyn (Coney Island) June 1st. I will be getting rid of my car (YAY!) at the end of this month and will be depenedent on public transportation, bike, or foot to get around - this has been a goal of mine for a long time!

mushy anniversary post

Today is my 3 year anniversary with my partner Zach. Because I am totally sentimental I wanted to post some pics of us over the years:

I will be introduced on a burlesque stage next friday. That means - oh shit - I got to come up with a stage name by then!

I wanted something German sounding, but that the average non-german speaking person would be able to pronounce. I also wanted a pun and something semi dirty.

My friend Caitlin, currently living in Hamburg, helped brainstorm with me and we came up with "Anja Bach."

Perfect I thought! I start researching it - and there is a drag artiste in England who is using it.

okay, fine, 'Anja Knees.'

Drag queen in Seattle is using it!

Ugh, so now I am researching 'Anja Face' to make sure no one else is using it. Although it is super clever and fun, I fear it might be too dirty for me.

"Ladies and gentleman, here she comes - Anja Face!"

What do you all think? I am going to discuss it at my burlesque class today and see their thoughts. Any other ideas?
yo people, sorry I have been neglecting this livejournal thing but I have been working on another blog. Once I have it more polished and presentable, I'll make a post about it and the exciting new endeavor in my life.
