Speechless Kiki

I seem to have found a good time to write my entries.  The only problem is that doing them the second I wake up means that I have no good banter.  LOL.  I’m just groggy as hell and can only focus on what mix is gonna help me get my morning activities done.  🙂

Blackhawks Kiki

So the Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup and I got pretty much no sleep last night.  I live on a busy main street and all I could hear were fireworks and people screaming all night.  Is it normal for people to let off fireworks all the time when something big happens or does that only happen in Chicago??  Anyways congrats to the Blackhawks.

World Cup time is finally here.  Starting tomorrow I will be a fixture at Smallbar Division for pretty much all the games.  If you’re in Chi, come watch a game or two and have a beer. 🙂

Still in the midst of working on grad school application stuff.  Nothing too exciting too report.

Working Girl Kiki… Finally

My weekend was all about work.  I trained at Smallbar.  I think I’m gonna like working there.  It definitely helps that I already know most of the staff there anyways.

I start my 5 week temp assignment today.  This is going to cut into my blogging time dammit. 😉  I’ll still try and post though.

Popstar Kiki

Shit.  Unemployment is finally getting to me.  I need to get out of my house.  Lame.  Even writing about it gets me annoyed so this rant will have to end here.

I can’t stop listening to that Giant – Drumstick VIP track. Such a party wobble track.  ❤   I know I’m late on it but you know I don’t really keep up with dubstep as much as I do dnb.  That Emalkay mix is still on repeat in my car.  Loves it.  Did you know that Enei is part of Giant?  I didn’t.

I’ve been listening to everything.  Dnb, dubstep, pop, rap, whatever switches up the tempo to my boring day.  I’m currently listening to Cheryl Cole as i type this.  Yes I’m aware that i should prolly keep that piece of info to myself but I’ll never deny my love for pop music.  NEVAAAHHH. Mwahahaha.  I still even have my Bros album on vinyl.  Gimme me a break, I grew up in London, I will listen to pop music for the rest of my life.  Girls Aloud what what! 😉

Tunes:
Jubei & Phobia – Cooper’s Dream (track is in both players)

Alix Perez feat. Peven Everett and SpectrasoulForsaken
I’m still listening to the Alix Perez album 1984.  So awesome.  I can’t get this track out of my head.  It’s a Chicago vocalist on the track.  Woot.  Big up Peven.

Emeril Lagasse + Betty Crocker = Kiki

Unemployment has helped me hone my chef skills.  Not only do I eat yummy dinners on a regular basis but i also bake desserts up the wazoo.  I’m sure I’d make someone a good wife someday.

I made dinner with Jessica yesterday and we both commented on how happy we are that we are not college students anymore.  I’m sure there are college students who eat well and make fancy dinners but I was definitely not one of them.  I remember eating a lot of candy, which is kinda odd cuz I really don’t eat it that much anymore.  When I say a lot I mean a daily visit to the corner shop to by not one but at least 3 different kinds, Twix, Almond Joy, Kit Kat etc and that would suffice as some sort of meal.  I also ate a lot of Pasta Roni and Wendy’s.  I’m not knocking any of those items.  I’m just saying that after spending the time and the money to eat awesome food I am ok with not visiting that chapter of my life again. 😉

Busy Busy Kiki

I am still amazed by how busy I am for being an unemployed person.  I guess I always imagined unemployment to be a period of time where you didn’t do anything but sit on the couch and watch telly.  I guess it really is what you make of it.  Today is chockablock full for me.  If you are in Chi go see Klute at Lava tonight.  Lots of buddies playing, Lamebrane, Stunna, Submorphics and Subverb.  Should be a good night.  Also listen to that Zero T Fabric Live Promo mix, it’s dope. 🙂

Tunes:
Alix Perez feat. Foreign BeggarsThe Cut Deepens
This track is diiiirrrrty.  Love it.  I’m actually digging Alix’s whole 1984 LP, cd and vinyl.  Nice one.

Today’s Oldie:
The StreetsIt’s too Late (High Contrast Remix) – Bootleg 2004
One of my favourite Streets songs.  Love this remix.
