diary of a manic obsessive.


is anybody still out there?

hi luvrs!

it's been a horrifyingly long time since i've blogged...

there's not enough time in the world to update everything that's happened...

so.. highlights?

-as most of you knew, i had moved to California to live with my boyfriend, Travis (aka "Bazinga Baby").
-couldn't stand my roommate
-lost my car :(
-got a job as a Leasing Consultant at the Community i lived at, Parkwood, in Irvine, CA. The job only lasted a few months because it was a summer position... but i liked it, leased a lot of apartments, made some good money, met some good people, bought some wicked cute work clothes, made some friends...
-made some HUGE strides with my etsy shop, which i changed the name of, from Twitterpated Pretty to Sara McCobb Hubbell Designs

-developed a beloved character, lil miss, whom i've taken through some pretty rough times, & have been really luving drawing her, painting her & sharing her woes with the world.

-went back to CT in August for Trav's cousins wedding (which was actually in Boston). The wedding was BEAUTIFUL & we had a great time!
-turned 25.... ::indifferent::
-got a Red Bull fridge, & a beautiful patio set from a friend, who, sadly, moved to NorCal soon after we started hanging out more :(

the biggest change of all...

*we got on the road again, yesterday, Thursday, December 15th, with all of our shit (well, most of it... 675lbs worth, to be exact, was on a pallet, shipped) on our way moving BACK to CT*


So, now i'm in a really crappy motel room in Santa Rosa, NM, about to have a "house salad" from a rando pizza place, the only one that would deliver, which "doesn't have menus"... -umm?-... & watch Anchorman for the millionth time, while Trav eats the most amazing looking pizza that i can't have bc it'll gimme a tummy ache all day tomorrow.

::dammit trav, please stop making those fucking "yummy noises"!::

the biggest, most important thing, at the moment, is that i'm on InstaGram (same name, Spankyluvsit) updating BEAUTIFUL photos & i'm also TWEETING the WHOLE trip (@Spankyluvsit).

Follow @Spankyluvsit & #STUSA for updates!!!

PLEASE tweet me, add the hash tag, ReTweet, tell your friends, comment on the blog, keep me in the loop, DON'T FORGET ME!!!! :)

i'll be back. i'm going to try to make a point to come back. i hope there's someone for me to write to. 

tell me that you're there!

Snow White & 7 other things

(((i hate when i start a post, get caught up in something else, then remember it weeks later, get mad at myself for not posting more often, & then go through the already written part to change things that make no sense, attempt to remember what else i was saying, & get back into it. so... here is goooes)))

I'm so obsessed with any sort of whimsical stories & i can't explain how stoked i get when i hear about new projects of old favorites.

I was SO sad that Beastly wasn't as good as i'd hoped. (it was... "eh." when it should have been "YAY!" - grr.)

I still have to go see Red Riding Hood (which i REALLLY wanted to see...)

a while ago i heard about not only one, but TWO new Snow White movies (which secretly pisses me off, bc i hate when two things that are the SAME, come out at the same time... it's like an automatic competition & it makes me sad, but o well...)

(((since i started writing this post, i read a pretty great Examiner.com article on the subject of the Battle of the Fairest in the Land.. here)))

Snow White & the Huntsman
directed by: Rupert Sanders
starring: Kristen Stewart, Chris Hemsworth & Charlize Theron

There isn't much information out yet, but i think K. Stewart will be an interesting Snow White. 

She def looks like her, but, depending on how the movie is going to go, the attitude will hafta be different from the traditional thought of Snow White. I can see this working out REALLY well, if it's done right.
As much as it pains me to say so, (& you all know how obsessed i am with Alice in Wonderland & Tim Burton), i don't think that his A-in-W flick turned out the way that i wanted it to. The vibe was just a bit too dark, which i hope does drag down this film.

Hey, K. Stew, haven't you learned by now that you're not supposed to eat the forbidden fruit? But, then again, i guess it works for you. Who am i to tell you to change it up, when you're the one that always lands the hottie in the end.

Hm.. i think i'm craving an apple... An apple a day gets a Happily Ever After with a Prince (or.. vampire)

The Brothers Grimm: Snow White
directed by Tarsem Singh
Starring: Lily Collins, Julia Roberts, Armie Hammer, Nathan Lane

I don't know much about this one, either, but the imdb.com plot says it's "a dark twist", so maybe this will be the creepier of the two flicks.
Snow White, in this version, is Lily Collins (Phil Collins daughter who has been in a few things, but i don't recognize her, other than a short stint on 90210). She's cute, def, but i'll be more partial to K. Stew from the gate. (can't help but be biased, luvs me some K. Stew, in all her awkward glory).

I also luvs me some Nathan Lane & i've always been a fan of Julia Roberts (more than Charlize, sorry CT).

2 points awarded to SW&H for leading lady choice, 1 point to TBG:SW for Julia Roberts, 1 more for Nathan Lane...
tied with cast...
I've never seen any of the films directed by Tarsem Singh, & this is listed as Rupert Sanders' first project, so, i guess it's a draw!
We'll have to see what else comes out to know which one will be in the front running.

7 other things:
1. i'm very excited because my lil sis is coming to visit me tomorrow. i haven't seen her since January & she's never been to Cali! Whooop!

2. i went to a very awesome thing, the opening night gala event for the LA Antique Show in Santa Monica where there was an exhibit from the Reform Gallery in LA which has a large (or.. the largest?) collection of Paul McCobb (my grandfather)'s furniture. He was a mid century furniture designer & my Mothers Daddy!
here's me!

3. i've read the first four books of the Blue Bloods series. I have book number 5, which i'm trying to hold off on, so i can read it before number 6 comes out, which i believe will be in October. They should DEF be movies & i have plenty of ideas on the cast. I hope i remember to post my thoughts on this!
 i've also read a few more books by Ellen Hopkins; Impulse, Identical (fav) & i'm now reading Tricks.

4. If anyone plays Words With Friends on their iPhone or Android, PUH-LEASE play vs. me, i'm (naturally) Spankyluvsit

5. What the FUCK is this about...??

6. I've updated my Etsy shop with my recent work. I have prints available of my sketches & paintings. I hope that you all enjoy them!!!
(they're a tad bit.... dark & twisty...)
The name is changed to Sara McCobb Hubbell Designs with Twitterpated Pretty & Twisted Pixie

7. it's a late update, but Travy Pants (Bazinga Baby) & i celebrated our One Year Anniversary in March. He took me to a lovely dinner at the GORGEOUS Orange Hill Restaurant in Anaheim, CA.
yes, this is the actual view. it's insane...

one more thing i'll say super fast: i read in Us Weekly that ABC is considering sending General Hospital to the morgue to lie with Days of Our Lives & All My Children, to make room for a BOGUS talk show with Katie Kuric. To this, my Mom (& only other known avid GH fan) said "I hope that Sonny doesn't go rogue" & i said "if they cancel my stories, i'll go fucking ROGUE".

So, let it be known, i will NOT be happy if is taken away from me. juuuust say'n...

miss u all.

what she wore

is it highly narcissistic to post about what i wear?
i've recently gotten some new clothes, thanks to the LF store's massive sale.

So, between that & my new hair extensions, i've been look'n cute! haha

So, i wanted to put up some photos of my recent 'fits & keep posting about the new ones to come!

here's a slideshow from the new album made on my Flickr account
[add me SMHubbell]

You can also see all my art on this Flickr!!!

So, is it weird to post photos of myself? haha Oh well...

home visit, unexpected shows & creepy hot flicks.

i went back to CT for almost 3 weeks, visited family, friends, my pupper nugget, all the usual suspects & i had a good time.

there was SO MUCH DAMN SNOW which i do NOT miss, living in Cali, but it was really good to see my peeps.

i had some super fun times w/ JenBunny, GiaPet, AmeCakes & my other bitties.

I took approx. 5 billion photos & videos of my doggie which i hope to upload... at some point...

& spent loads of time with my wonderful family.

since i've been back, there's some other things i want to talk about, that aren't as deep as things i've posted about in the recent months. (When i have the time... & energy...)

Pauly-D Obsession:

i hafta post this, bc i'm loling my ass off over it...

Medium vs. Real Housewives:

since it's start, i have loved the show Medium (ok, that's a lie, when it was first airing, i thought i was going to be avoiding it at all costs, bc it looked like something that was going to scare the shit out of me, but my Ma watched it & i started watching early into the first season). A few seasons ago, Kelsey Grammer appeared on the show as, ehem, Satan... which was also the first time that i realized he was the Executive Producer of the show. Then, of course, like any red blooded 24 year old chickie, I've learned from Bravo's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills that Camille Grammer was behind a lot of the creation of the show.
THEN, on an extremely disturbing episode of RHWoBH, we meet the REAL Allison Dubois (the main character on Medium, for those of you that don't know what the hell i'm talking about!) & god damn, she was AWFUL!
Here's a link to part of the awful episode...
(Lemme also just shout out that i'm SO in luv with Lisa Vanderpump, i think she's possibly, my fav housewife OF ALL TIME!!! woo hoo Lisaaa!!!)

My question: Everyone that watches Real H.Wives of BH, or current celebrity gossip, knows about how shitty-face Kelsey Grammer totes fucked over the hot-ass Camille after 13 years of marriage, which basically made her internally break down during the whole season. - BUT, since the show Medium was a "pet project" of the couple, is their recent blow up divorce the reason behind the sudden, out of NO WHERE end to one of MY FAV SHOWS?!!? if so... i'm sorry Fraiser, as much as i may enjoy listening to you play the villainous Side-Show Bob on The Simpsons, & as much as your fucked up life choices may add some drama to one of my fav shows, i do NOT appreciate you causing a rift in my TiVo lineup! WTF?!!?
(PS: Spencer Grammer, i'm sorry your Dad fucked up... i still luv you & i still look forward to seeing your adorable face on Greek every Monday!)

Life Unexpected:

I was absolutely shocked when, toward the end of one of my regular shows, the screen went black & "Two Years Later" popped up on the screen... WHAA?! Then, after a quick, unexplained wrap up, Life Unexpected ENDED... rather... ehem... Unexpectedly?!?!
I mean... i guess i'm happy with where they chose to send the characters... but... it was a total cop out. It was LITERALLY like they had a regular show episode planned, then, funding was pulled? Ratings weren't great? Kerr Smith signed on to be in Dawson's Creek the movie? & all of a sudden, "Hey... guys... can you just, wrap it up in the last 5 mins? we're done with this one..." 
i'm totes disappointed.
-----> sad face.


I mean... do i even need to explain why i want to see this? Anyone who has spent 5 mins on this blog probably is WELL AWARE of my enormous attraction to anything funky, add an OLSEN to that & we are SO in business.

MK looks so fucking badass, it's ridiculous. It's supposed to be out in March & i cannot wait.

Black Swan:

Ya, duh i saw Black Swan, helloooo! I'll admit, parts of it freaked me THE FUCK OUT, but, i can't stop thinking about this movie & i really wanna see it again. Natalie Portman is a god damn UH-MAZING actress & i'm SOOOO stoked she won the Golden Globe & i can't wait to watch her (knock on wood) win her OSCAR!!! The film is nominated for best film & Darren Aronofsky is nommed for best director. i hope it's a sweep for the flick. i can't wait for it to be on DVD so i can watch it over & over! haha
Mila, i'm sorry you didn't win supporting actress! :( no Oscar nom for Mila is poopy. She should get a special award for chick i'd likely go super gay for. i mean, hello? i'm about as boy crazed as they come, but Mila is one crazy hot mama, fo' sho!
PS: on a terrifying side note, the night i saw the movie, i came home, was a little bugged out, wanted to distract myself, was doing my toe nails & all of a sudden, my toenail cracks & starts to bleed... next morning, i come out of the shower with a massive scratch on my shoulder blade... WHAAAAAA?!?!?!?!

Adam Sandler star:

I'd like to also say Congrats to Adam Sandler, who was given his Hollywood Walk of Fame star today. I was honestly surprised, bc i thought he would have gotten one a long ass time ago.

LA Football:

Apparently, they're building "Farmer's Field" in Los Angeles. an arena that will host.... well, honestly, all i really heard anyone definitively say was "fights", which i think was more of just a shout out to "Oscar" (De La Hoya?) who was apparently in the audience of the Press Statement? I don't know.. the whole thing was weird...
I mean, they talked about the reason behind the name, the high tech crap, this that, the other thing, how it will give reason to open a shit ton of hotels in downtown LA... uh... then, there was some stock footage of the... Olympics? which was odd... then, at the last moment of the news story, they mentioned a fleeting thought about "Oh ya... we'll prob end up getting a football team, at some point"... that'd be good, otherwise, you're gunna have to book some pretty badass concerts to fill your pricey hotels...
PREDICTION: Bazinga, my sports Guru who has taught me like almost everything that i know about sports (almost, i knew a lot before) thinks that maybe the Jacksonville Jaguars will move. (UNOFFICIAL PREDICTION - he said it as a possible thought, not any ink on paper prediction).

Blue Bloods:

i'm reading a new series of books that are actually WAY better than i thought they'd be.

Blue Bloods

I don't know if they're already planning to make a TV show or a movie(s) about this series, but, i honestly first thought of MK Olsen for the character of Schuyler (which i thought was more like shoo-ler until my Ma told me it was Sky-ler, & that Sky-ler was actually a family name of ours, sweet!) I guess i was wrong with my initial thoughts, bc it wasn't until i was mostly into the first book that i read she had blue black hair...? haha i was picturing a different look.
Also, i picture Jack Force to be played by Landon Liboiron... i dunno, i just see it. I'm thinking about my other predictions, but i think it could be a fun new game for me to play, to see if i can predict who would play characters in the movie. haha. i'd need help from others tho, tell me if you hear about a new movie being made that's not cast yet. Oooh, i can ask Mattman about what he knows, too. he's in the biz, he could let me know.

Ok. i think i've written WAY too much for this one post. i seem to keep going...

it feels good to be back, in a way. we'll see if i (fingers crossed, i hope i do) keep it up.

ps: JenBunny is coming to visit me. She'll be here next week. i'm soooo excited & we're 90% sure we're doing a semi-impromptu VEGAS TRIP! there will be more on this subject!!!

ANYWAY. i'm glad that i've found some time to write about a few topics.

I hope that you're all well.

last years goals, book worm exchange, & a few other things

The names have been drawn for the 2010 (which i now realize should have been called 2011) blogger book worm 'ganza gift exchange.
if you're signed up for the exchange, please make sure to go & check your draw!

last year, JenBunny posted a bunch of other bloggers goals on her blog. She posted mine, too!
here they are:

1. allow myself time to expand on my skills & creativity
2. live a cleaner life & purge all the clutter
3. maintain my weight
4. be presentable (stop looking like a slob)
5. take my blog to another level

i went back & took a look to see if i held up my word to myself.
at first look, i was surprised that i had been so.... vague? but, thinking about it, i think that i did... most?

1. i have def expanded my skills & creativity. this year i realized that i have many other creative skills than i thought. my etsy shop, twitterpated pretty went from being a "sometimes" hobby, to an everyday obsession that pulled in some pretty good cash!

2. Since i moved from CT to CA, i had to pack all my things into my car, sooo... i'd DEF say that i purged the initial clutter... but... i seem to have a really bad habit of accumulating more. I will make a point to continue with this goal & make sure my new home doesn't end up as cluttered as my old room did. [this will def mean i have to do some "spring" cleaning already!]

3. This one i'll give myself a pat on the back for. This time last year i had dropped about 30lbs from my start weight & was getting closer to my goal weight. In the first few months of 2010 i lost the rest of the weight i wanted to lose & have maintained it! I've lost over 50lbs since my initial start & have been successfully steady at my current weight for over 8 months now! hoooorah!

4. i'm not sure if i've reached this goal. i have a nicer wardrobe, but, most of the time, since i don't have a job, i spend at home, usually in pjs or shorts & a tank. i don't tend to put makeup on if im not going out & my hair, especially since cutting it short, is usually just in a pony tail... i guess i'd say that at home, or the grocery store, or to get the mail... ya, i'm still a slob. Going out, on the rare occasion, i dress up NIIIICE! hahaha

5. well, i took it to another level, just not one that was higher than the last years level. The blog world has gotten away from me in the 2nd half of this year, well, more like the last 3/4 of this year. so, i guess.... for all intents & purposes... i failed this goal... :(

i DID reach my reading goal. i read 16 books this year, which is the most, in one year, i've ever read. that, to me, is awesome, & i'm suuuuper proud of myself. :)

i fly to CT tomorrow. i'm so stoked. Bazinga isnt coming with me, so i'm sad about that, but i can't wait to see my fam & friends!!!
