Girlie things.

Every lady I know likes painting their nails, or getting a manicure here and there, It's one of my favorite things to do while I'm stoned. Currently, I'm obsessed with Essie brand nail polish since it's recently become available at CVS. Sugar Daddy is pretty much the most perfect baby pink I've ever come across, it doesn't get streaky or drastically change shades because of my heavy-handedness. I bought Merino Cool as an alternative to Mink Muffs since my bottle was drying out and it's the perfect cool gray. For those of you who don't know, my favorite color is gray. As of late though, I've been rocking Lilacism. I get so many compliments on it! Here I am sporting my Essie nail polish in Lilacism holding my bag of Juicy Fruit. Can you believe that's all I have left for the week? I guess I'm going to get some studying done!

That little bag has made me late to class twice because I've fallen asleep after smoking a bowl. It's the sleepiest weed I've come across in a while. It just got me to sleep through my 4 o'clock class. I fell asleep and forgot to post for 5 days. That's what happens with sleepy weed, but BOY is it some good sleep...

Hope everyone had an enjoyable 420, it looks like M.I.A. did! I picked up an eighth Tuesday afternoon but not surprisingly, it's already gone. I started the holiday with a few bowls in bed, went to class and then came back to my apartment with Ley. We loaded a bowl and Ley had a few hits, I had a few hits, and we were all feeling good. My girls Neezy and Antonia came over too. Neezy missed 4:20 on 4/20 cause her ass was stuck on the train but Antonia, Ley, and I each took a hit at 4:20 and snacked on everything from cheese and pepperoni to barbecue chips, baby carrots, and Ferrero Rocher chocolates. Eventually, everyone left and I spent the evening smoking the few nugs I had left while watching House and the season finale of Parenthood. A pretty enjoyable afternoon I'd say. I can't recall what I did last year for 420, but that's not surprising.

My most memorable 420 was a few years ago, before my lovely lady friend the Queen Bee moved to London. We spent the day smoking and eating brownies and eventually fell asleep on the couch watching Pineapple Express. Honestly, it doesn't get any better than that. Back in the day Bella was my number one smoking partner. We'd sit in her kitchen and smoke bowl after bowl, laughing and talking shit the entire time. (The best smoking partners are the ones who don't expect you to want to do anything, who don't mind if you're not even talking, and who's equally as lazy as you are.)

Check out some beautiful buds we smoked. We made a weed salad with the different strains Antonia, Neezy and I had. Weed salad is always a surprising high, you never know which strains characteristics are going to come out. Anyway, I'm brewing up some good posts including the case against legalization, lots of links to new reading material, environmental repercussions of the marijuana industry and more.

The windows are the eyes to the ...outside.

I was looking forward to a nap after waking up at 5 a.m. this morning for my retail job, but the building manager had other ideas. I came home to an apartment littered with saw dust, covered in plastic, and wondering where the hell he put my nightstand and if he spilled the week(s) old water in my bong... I was so confused I just grabbed the laptop and took off for a walk. Unfortunately, it's April and April in Boston means lots of rain so I'm posted up in a Starbucks on Boylston Street, which is lucky for you since I was just going to blog later in my Warhol class and it probably wouldn't be as interesting.

I'm also watching Law & Order, which if you know me at all, I'm ALWAYS watching. Watching TV is my favorite stoner activity, in fact, I don't know how to watch TV without being stoned. I get bored. So, I'm making my way through the first half of the original NYC series which was on air beginning in 1990, just a year after my birth. It may have taken them 20 years to film and air all 456 episodes, but it's only taken me a few weeks to get through seasons 1-7. I'm going to have to Netflix a few DVDs though, I can't seem to find a few episodes on the web. This will just add to the list of TV series I've watched in entirety, inluding (and most certainly missing a few series): Law & Order: SVU, Law & Order: CI, Law & Order: Trial by Jury, Law & Order: Los Angeles, Weeds, Sex & the City, CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI: NY, Psych, Monk, Greek, Bones, Dexter, House, Lie to Me, Mad Men, Mercy, Nip/Tuck, Scrubs, L Word... okay, I'm getting tired, but you get the idea. I watch a fuckton of television for someone who doesn't have cable. My 12" TV set sits on top of my dresser gathering dust, I choose to watch everything on my laptop. I mean, hell, it has the same screen size and I can watch whatever I want 'on demand.'

Anyway, while watching these early episodes my stoned ass was wowed by the original Detective Stabler (aka Detective Sexy as Hell). Starring as one of the original detectives from season one is none other than Chris Noth. Before he was Mr. Big sweating up the sheets with Carrie Bradshaw he was Detective Mike Logan and boy, was television different in the 90s! Today Detective Stabler pushes up his sleeves to reveal his chiseled arms but in 1990s Law & Order Chris Noth is clad in tartan suits and matching ties buttoned to the neck. In later seasons he puts on the sexy, but there's something about a stoic, traditional man... Maybe it's a daddy complex? Regardless, even with women, sex sells.

I'm not sure if Chris Noth is into weed, but his character on CBS' 'The Good Wife,' Peter Florrick, candidate for State Attorney, banks on the youth vote with a medical marijuana initiative. So there's that. Ha.

Now, onto business, how is everyone celebrating 420 tomorrow? Edibles? Blunts? What's on the menu? My girl Ley has the pizza patrol on lock, she calls before a party, sets delivery for a few hours later and waits until she's intoxicated for her forgotten surprise. I think this is a good plan for 420, especially if you're the type to get lazy after a few joints. I'm picking up an eighth today and tomorrow? Well who knows what tomorrow will bring, but I have the day off and an eighth so I'm all set. I think I may even change my bong water for tomorrows festivities! Be safe tomorrow, don't eat too much and throw up or fall asleep watching your stoner movie.

Stay Stoned ♥

Smoking to the Oldies!

Now that I'm graduating from college with my bachelors in Journalism, I'm realizing that bills come before smoking weed. Now, I don't want to quit smoking anytime soon, and I don't plan on it, but there's supposed to come a time where I quit, right? Wrong.

I'm with Tracie Morrissey over at Jezebel who challenges the idea at the core. While I acknowledge that I need to find an alternative source of income for my vices, I refuse to acknowledge that I have to quit. Cut down, maybe, but not any time in the very near future.

Smoking has somehow become something that only college kids and deadbeats do. But I know lawyers, lobbyists, teachers, parents, bus drivers are all people too, and people have smoked marijuana since... well, since forever ago in China some 2000 years B.C. or something (it's been a long time since I wrote that Hemp paper...).

So what's with the taboo? Need I remind you I'm GRADUATING COLLEGE in 4 WEEKS?! With a pretty damn good GPA, I might add. For the last 3 years, I've been smoking almost every day. Weekly, at the very least. And over the last 3 years I've completed some prestigious internships, designed a book, held down a job, had this blog (okay, so there's my downfall!) and maintained and created new relationships. Apparently, as a stoner I'm not supposed to have all that. I'm supposed to work at Dunkin Donuts, live in a dump, and be a loser.

You're never too old to smoke weed. If Willie Nelson didn't make clear, let me make it clear to you; You are never too old to smoke weed. For medicinal reasons, or for recreational reasons, it's your right to toke up.

And don't get me started on the alcohol argument. It's a joke. When did you last hear about two stoners getting in a fight outside of a dispensary and killing someone? Uh, never. But I can think about countless times I've seen bar fights, and not on the news, but legit, spilling-onto-Boylston-street bar fights. When was the last time a guy got stoned and beat his wife? Someone died from drinking too much? Exactly. I personally would much rather smoke a joint. Drinking is like gambling, half the time it puts my acid reflux into overdrive making me puke and half the time I'll be okay, but the next day I'm not 100%, it makes me feel tired and brain-dead. Pass the joint, please.

Wahh, wahh. I get high. AND I ACCOMPLISH THINGS! And guess what? I'm not going to stop. I'm going to not only function as a stoner, but I'm going to be successful as a stoner. Watch me.

p.s. Today's smoothie was awesome. I used canned peaches, blackberry pomegranate yogurt, frozen raspberries, mango nectar, and two handfuls of almonds. Uhm, I feel so healthy. Except, last night I was craving a cheeseburger...

A Healthy Stoner?

It's Tuesday morning and it's time for breakfast; I'm nursing my first full bowl of the day and contemplating the most important meal of the day. I'm trying to start taking my health and healthy eating more seriously with smoothies. Quick and delicious they can be super filling and nutritious as well. My mom has always made them for me in the summer and when I was on the swim team, but after trolling the blogosphere it's seems to be the best way for the laziest person on earth to get their 5-a-day.

Now, most stoners are known for fast food binges and junk food overload, and while I have been known to eat a one pound bag of Sour Patch Kids in one sitting, but I honestly prefer to snack on fruit all day long. People think because I'm naturally thin I can afford to binge on junk all day and not pay for it-- NOT TRUE! I may be able to fit into my jeans the next day, but I can't walk up two flights of stairs without feeling a burn and being out of breath (and before you blame the smoking, I have an amazing lung capacity and function, so there). So I'm trying to reform my eating, starting with breakfast, focusing on those mornings where I don't eat anything at all... which is most mornings.

I was reading Happy Brittany's smoothie-centric blog and was inspired! Spinach! Almonds! Cucumbers!? Avocados!? After I adjusted to the positivity-overload (much-needed at the time!) I was a little intimidated-- I'm no natural in the kitchen. I mean, I can cook, but I'm not good with flavors and mixing and matching and all that. This week, I'm starting small, fruits, yogurt, milk, etc. Next week, maybe I'll throw in some flax seed.

Today's ingredients: frozen blueberries, banana, almond butter, raw almonds, vanilla yogurt, 2% milk, a little sugar.

Today's results: HOLY ALMOND BATMAN. Relatively boring as for flavor, but I'm gonna feel like Batman after I drink it.

A word to the wise, check out Whole Foods for the hippie shit; almond butter there is $5 compared to $10 at Shaw's. What I need now though is an awesome reusable smoothie cup! I'm digging this one from Amazon, but if anyone knows of any cooler ones that come with extra straws holla at your girl!

Okay, enough typing, more doing.
