leave your inhibitions at the door
A couple weeks ago I introduced the concept of Summer Resolutions to the family, and I’m proud to say that The Pieholes are still rocking the resolutions. Mini-me has taken every opportunity he could to hop on his bike and log additional miles. One of the girls has been actively taking as many pictures as she can in and around the house. And the other girl…Oh yeah, it’s time to tell you what she chose to do this summer.
She’s decided to start her OWN site – http://minihedonist.tumblr.com
Yes the mango doesn’t fall far from the tree.
This is the twin that’s in theater and is into all kinds of self-expression, but I didn’t think this was something she’d want to do. We had talked about both of the girls doing a guest post about a crappy Mexican restaurant we went to in Arizona, but the weeks went by and… nothing. So I was a little surprised when she not only chose to do a blog, but already had the name and framework done.
You know what else surprised me? Her liberal use of the word “sh!t.” I’d say that SOMEONE is going to get a talking to but, again, mangoes.
Besides vaguely questionable language, you’ll find some other similarities with this blog. There’s a lot of different stuff there – food, music, theater, links to her YouTube channel, restaurants, photog… Whoa, whoa, whoa.
I don’t recall giving permission to have a YouTube channel. Screw the mangoes, someone is definitlely going to get a talking to.
Anyway, I’m proud of her for putting herself out there. Hopefully, she’ll keep this up after school starts (ahem, assuming homework’s done). I think it’s a great hobby and that’ll help develop her writing style, photography skills, and cooking.
At very least, I can steal some content from her for this blog.
Speaking of stealing content, she posted a video of from her final middle school choir concert. She and some friends put together an a cappella group that arranged and performed a completely AMAZEBALLS version of Lorde’s Royals. You can skip to the singing at 2:00 or be like me – nod your head occasionally as she talks a million miles an hour about stuff you have no clue about.
Go check out her site! And yes, she also got her good looks from me…
