“renovation”

You’re not lost. Don’t worry, you’re still in thecuriousme site. I know it looks groovy! Thanks to my little sister, @TheSoulfulVixen, for creating the new classy logo and header. Yipey!

new!

Right, thecuriousme is now evolving from a cute & naughty little fairy to a funky & sassy nerd. 😀  It’s some sort of transformation from “fairytale” to reality. 😀 I bet you’re getting pumped because you’ve just witnessed the first phase of thecuriousme “renovation”. 😉

No, the change is not a sudden decision. It has been in my to-do list for the last year to have a complete revamp of the site including the change of name. However, after contemplating for a few months, I have decided to stick with thecuriousme since it has already become my trademark.

More “interior” changes will happen soon whether you like it or like it. Ha!

I know… I know…

I’ve been writing so much about Sarah Geronimo and Gerald Anderson (a.k.a. AshRald or Sasa & Gege) when in fact this is a personal blog, not a showbiz blog. Nonetheless, although Sasa & Gege are celebrities, I still regard the AshRald bond as a personal journey given that I officially belong to the AshRald community.

Don’t get it wrong, AshRald is not a cult or something. It’s the connection of cool and classy individuals brought together through the Sarah and Gerald love waves.

Before I continue blabbering about how awesome to be in the AshRald circle, I need to control myself.  I can already feel James Lee’s famous “dagger eyes” glaring at me (all the way from Singapore) and silently telling that I should get back on track. Shhh… James Lee is my buddy as well as my worst and best critic! 😉  (Click here to read related article -> Big Sister’s House)

Let’s get the ball rolling…

I admit I’m a “health” buff and I do love to work out… However, doing it continuously is an enormous challenge. My body is not flexible and since time immemorial, I have difficulty reaching my toes without bending my knees. It’s bizarre! To think that I’m so tiny like Tinkerbell. Tsk tsk tsk. The funny thing is, eating non-stop is totally a piece of cake for me and effortless for me. :p

Surprise… surprise!  I bought a Mari Winsor Pilates dvd with a pair of  mini “dumbbells” sometime last week. Doing Pilates for beginners really felt great but it took a toll on me and I stopped for few months and then, started again, then stopped for few weeks … and the cycle continues on and on and on…

Now, I’ve been dragging myself in doing the simple routines and incorporating some of the things that DJ Mitch (@TheSoulfulVixen) taught me. And to spice it up, I’ve also added the dougie dance moves. Boy! The last one definitely pumped me up! Whoa!

Anyway, slowly but surely. I’m getting there. Who wants join?  

Alec Baldwin

While we have something to be happy for comes the end of Thursday, The Soulful Vixen has some other reasons: aside from the fact that Friday is the start of the weekend, she just happened to get a tweet from one of the most versatile actors of all-time, Mr. Alec Baldwin, who recently joined Twitter few weeks ago.

I know the whole story because I am following @TheSoulfulVixen.

So, it started with just a simple tweet about The Rolling Stones songs. Mr. Baldwin tweeted several of his picks. The Soulful Vixen in return mentioned ever liking “Time Is On My Side”. Charmed! And just like that, Mr. Baldwin didn’t hesitate to tweet more of his picks to The Soulful Vixen which are pretty much blues and in line with “Time Is On My Side”. And that makes The Soulful Vixen one helluva lucky girl!

So what’s the big deal? IT IS A BIG DEAL to get a tweet from the one and only Alec Baldwin. After all, he’s not just an actor you see on TV. He appears on film, stage, and television. After all, he IS Jack Donaghy from 30 Rock on NBC.

After all, he starred in movies like Beetlejuice, Great Balls of Fire, Miami Blues, Alice, Prelude to a Kiss, Malice, The Getaway, The Shadow, The Juror, Notting Hill, State and Main, The Acting Class, Mercury Rising, Cats & Dog, Pearl Harbor, Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within, It’s Complicated, and a LOT MORE. Which earned him two Emmy Awards, three Gold Globe Awards and six Screen Actor Guild Awards.

IT IS A BIG DEAL because out of thousands of followers he has, and millions of twitter followers that are probably tweeting him, he happened to tweet to The Soulful Vixen.

IT IS A BIG DEAL because The Soulful Vixen got in to the first 100 tweets from Mr. Baldwin.

IT IS A BIG DEAL because I betcha, she’s the first and only Filipino to be tweeted by a Mr. Alec Baldwin.

And why not? If you want to find out, you gotta follow @TheSoulfulVixen.

Pictured below is a screenshot of Mr. Baldwin’s tweet, telling it all in caps as to put emphasis on the songs he liked from The Rolling Stones.
