The Jersey Shore Family Vacation

(Photo via The Jersey Shore IG) 

I was a HUGE fan of the reality tv show "The Jersey Shore". My Thursdays turned into Jerzdays for six seasons. I was hooked. 

All good things must come to an end. I thought the series should have ended in Italy, but the producers decided to squeeze one more sad season on the boardwalk. 

All but one original cast member, Sammi Sweetheart declined. She says she is in a healthy relationship and didn't want Ron drama ruining it. Good call Sammi. Ron has a baby on the way, but he's acting like single Ron, and talking A LOT about Sammi. Hmm... 

Nicole and Jenn are married with children. Deena is married and Vinnie and Mike both have serious girlfriends. Pauly is the only single cast member. 

No spoilers, but even though years have passed, everyone is pretty much the same, except for one MAJOR change. PLASTIC SURGERY. I was distracted during the entire premiere looking at Nicole's terrible lip injections. Everyone has had way too much botox. It's sad. There comes a time when you have to look in the mirror and know you have gone from naturally attractive to some plastic wax person. 

I'll still watch, but my hope will be the cast will read the thousands of comments and realize enough is enough!! 

Looking forward to Jerzdays, 
Monica

All You Have is Your Word

It amazes me how many people break promises. The technology at our fingertips allows communication in almost any format nowadays. If you tell someone "I'll get back to you", there is no excuse not to anymore.

It's not just everyday people either. Companies are dropping the ball. I have been trying to purchase a dishwasher for MONTHS. Stores that sell large appliances are completely unreliable. I see why big box stores are closing. It should be so simple to make a purchase and have it delivered and installed within the week. The entire process is way more complicated than it should be...

Frustrated,
Monica

The Works of Reymundo Sanchez


ONCE A KING, ALWAYS A KING



MY BLODDY LIFE



LADY Q



These books are serious Chicago Literature. Read at your own risk. Rey doesn't hold back on the violence of living as a Latin King on the South Side of Chicago.

Pensive,
