Musical Monday – Going Solo

Posted by SaraG on September 27, 2021

Music

We keep lamenting our idols going into the military but we don’t talk nearly as much about our loves returning to the fold. I think part of it, at least for those of us that have been around awhile, is that in the olden days…like 7 years ago…we rarely got our idols back after discharge. They moved on to other careers either in the industry or using the degrees they worked so hard to earn while also being creating and promoting. But now, norms are shifting, our fantasy boyfriends have become experienced, post-military men and are ready and willing to continue sharing their talents with us in a more mature and, for me anyway, human way.

Posted by Stephanie on September 26, 2021

Khottie of the Week

Raise your hand if you’ve worked on Khottie today while watching the newest episode of Great British Bakeoff! Is there anything that says lazy fall Sunday like a pot on the stove bubbling apples into sauce, a neighborhood full of drunken Broncos fans, cozy British people baking, and looking up cute Korean boys on Pinterest? Classic fall!

A Year With Kpop

Posted by ValB on September 24, 2021

General

I can’t believe that it’s been a little over a year since I started my hardcore journey into the land of Kpop. It seems like yesterday I was asking SaraG for recommendations on what to listen to. She was very happy to oblige and she put up with my non stop stream of questions like the amazing friend that she is. You’ve probably listened to my interview with Stephanie about being a Kpop newbie and how it all started, so I’ll keep the back story brief. While I had dabbled in the land of Kpop as a Teen librarian, nothing ever stuck. I had a short list of a few groups (Viction, Pentagon, Oneus, Red Velvet, and BTS)  that I occasionally listened to on road trips. They were a good starting point, but I was stuck. So, with the recommendation of Sara’s hubby, I decided to just ask her. Boy howdy.. She provided. And this time it caught me hook, line, fabulous dancing, excellent beats, and sinker!

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Vicious Debate

Posted by SaraG on September 23, 2021

Music

I am human. I like to overindulge in all sorts of things – dramas, music, looking at beautiful people, and of course, food and drink. I will invent just about any excuse for a treat. But, I tend to prefer the more savory side of the kitchen over the sweet. I have a solid carb tooth. Having something like cupcakes in the house isn’t even really a temptation for me, but a box of pretzels will hardly last more than a day or two. I can give or take ice cream in general, but when the craving hits, I am a pillar of basic taste, gimme cookies and cream or mint chocolate or give me nothing.

Cliffhanger…And Not The Usual Kind

Pretty sure, I don’t need to do anything but show you the poster for the upcoming tvN show, Cliffhanger and you’re first instinct will be “Stop right there, I’m in.” Or at least, that was MY first instinct!

Musical Monday – Should We, Shouldn’t We

Posted by SaraG on September 20, 2021

Music

You may remember a few months ago when the Colorado friends all went a bit nuts and bought tickets to actual concerts in the hopes that by the time the dates rolled around, the world would be in a more open place and we would feel comfortable going. Well, the dates have arrived and things are just a bit more complicated than I was hoping. Though my friends and I are vaccinated, I have a kiddo that is under 12 and still not eligible. I’m faced with the great do I go or do I not dilemma. I work for a health department and am surrounded by experts and guidance all day every day. I don’t need input on what to do, I just have to, in partnership with my family, weigh and measure what level of risk we are willing to take until the youngest is in a less vulnerable state.

Funny story how Mr. Jungwoo was chosen for this week’s Khottie, sure, he’s cute, he’s adorable, he has a serious case of pillow lips, he’s in one of my high ranking groups but something pushed him over the top….

Throwback (Musical) Thursday – Behind the Curtain

Posted by SaraG on September 16, 2021

Music

 

I actually am not a super firm believer in the adage “absence makes the heart grow fonder.” In fact, I need little love letters and acknowledgments that our relationship is still important in order to stoke the embers of my passion – in real-world relationships and in my Kpop relationships. And boy-howdy is Kpop really good at this. We get oodles of content when new releases are set free into the world and with most of the big groups, we get nearly as much in between comebacks. There are several groups for which I will consume nearly every second they put out the moment it hits YouTube and some which put out so much there is no way in the world to ever keep up. But it’s there, waiting for that rainy afternoon when everyone else in the universe is busy, waiting for just the right moment for an epic binge.

Binging Hospital Playlist

Posted by Stephanie on September 14, 2021

General

Coming up with a topic for today’s post was harder than usual. Sure, I may be distracted by work projects, I’m also pretty distracted by plans for the upcoming Alix, SaraG and Stephanie Can’t Go To Thailand So We’d Better Go Somewhere Else trip.  But really, my overwhelming distraction is my desire to chuck it all and continue my binge of Hospital Playlist.

End of season two dead ahead!
