Texas Trip...

Austin-town.... Been living 'live' music, bad VHS tapes, cheap eats, hard workout sessions, and wishing Perry would take a chill-pill (god, I wish those so-called 'chill pills' were real... I would slip one in Perry's cat bowl...)

When Perry is In.... she wants Out. When she is Out... she wants to come through the window....From the window to the lamp, to the blinds, to my scalding cup of tea! She meows and howls and cries at the wall... at the chair..... at the shoe. Once in awhile - she sits on my lap and purrs..... and then I don't hate her as much. I keep calling her "Craigslist" cat.... ha.... but I don't think she gets the joke at all. Cats have no sense of humor.

Few months ago, my roomies went out and picked up an incredibly cheap TV with a built-in VHS.....Did you know that VHS tapes at Goodwill are only 50 cents? Who needs Redbox!? You get to watch all those great classics that were never put to DVD... or all those non-classics that just sucked so bad, no one wanted to convert them to DVD! Between VHS tapes and my long list of books I am reading, I do not seem to get much done anymore....

Been working-out like crazy for the past two weeks - I am running about 7-8 miles a day right now on average... Lifting weights, killing my abs till I feel like someone kicked me in the stomache.... It hurts, but it hurts-oh-so-good... I want to tone up - I want to have control of my body again - I do not want to have the blood pressure of a 50 year old woman....

Taking a trip around Texas this week! Was planning on traveling with Tracy Jordan, but due to the bad storm in LA (which is now hitting Tucson) - She won't be able to join me. Three days in Dallas, four days in Houston, maybe I will look into Corpus Christi and San Ant as well.....

I decided the swimming pool photos have nothing to do with a cat, my tv, or a treadmill... ha.... : )

Will probably use them in the summertime... those photos are from 2005, when I was traveling with Matthew through California... funny what I find on the internet sometimes.... Flicker and DeviantArt are full of photos that I forgot I even took.... geeze, I shoot too much... ha

Nice to know you're back home and having fun with Perry & co. I'm also declaring war on my bod through ridiculous amounts of working out (not that I think you need it lol). Please keep us updated with your progress and ALWAYS stretch before any workout (you DO NOT want a pulled muscle -- it will take forever to heal -- or a cramp). Enjoy your Texas Swing with Tracy and keep being the awesome honey you are. Muchos Besos to you my dear. xoxo from NYC. 8)

Yup! These photos say, "Hey! You have been watching shitty movies all week! Go get your hair cut by some sexy lady with her ass hanging out..."

Been thinking about doing that all day - heard Birds, a hair-place here in Austin, also gives you arcade games and beer while they chop your locks... : )

Might just go check it out... : )

I've seen some very nice shots of you this week would you mind if I ask, how long have you been modeling?

Dubbayoo said...

Your workouts must be doing something cuz your butt looks unreal in that miniskirt. LOL

PD said...

As it seems, busy as always. Dont wear yourself out. Old movies & reading. Sounds real good right now. What classics did they pick up?
The return of the Dynamic Duo! Should make the drive through Texas interesting to say the least. Have a good trip!
=)

Wow, London Andrews really lives in Texas? I just happened across this blog but I've been a huge fan since I saw the first shoots. I live in Austin and I'm happy to hear someone with your creative talent is around this great city.

You still watch VHS too! I love it, you are so cool. Love DVD but I haven't quite been able to ditch what I grew up with for 20 years -- not just yet lol. On a side note, you ARE the most beautiful model on the web IMHO. That's right you ARE a model and a very creative one at that, you don't need some loser site that creates nothing but tries to tear others down to validate you. I think your fans outnumber the haters 1,000,000 to one easily! Enjoy your week and enjoy the flick 2nite. ;)

Thanks

Evan! Nice to hear you are trying to slam your body into shape as well.... Working out is a lot of fun. I always look at it as... How-much-pain-can-I-handle today!?... I feel like Rambo sometimes.... I *should* be dead, but I just get right back up again.

I find that stretching is not so much as a problem... as my *still* broken foot is. It is really difficult running on a foot that never healed correctly.... it goes numb, it aches, makes me feel old... it sucks...

To answer the question, I have been modeling since i was 21 1/2.... I am now 25 1/2... so four years is the magic number.

OMG! My butt IS unreal - I am skinnier, smaller boobs, with this crazy shelf butt... it is crazy! Totally ghetto Fab! I look REALLY good naked these days... I am likin it. Maybe this year will be "the butt" year... and everyone will want to photograph my crazy booty... ha

PD, I tried to find your email a million times in my Gmail - I don't know how it lost it.... Stupid Gmail! - I never had the chance to Thank You for my Christmas presents! You are really too good to me... these books are SOOOOO good! Ha, I am driving Pat crazy because I never want to leave the house - I just sit in the backyard throwing sticks at my cat and reading my books all day. The bathing suit is awesome too... I cannot wait to take some photos in it.... I am definitely bringing it to Jamacia next month.... I cannot wait for Jamacia.... *hugs*

Hey Chooni! Yea! I moved here in October... : ) The weather sure is nice today, huh? Convertible day, fo sho...

And Charlie - VHS rules. People do not know what they are missing out on.... like A-Tracks with visuals.... total class!

That site pissed me off.... A lot of the photos on there are just silly and fun, but mine were mean and nasty.... I don't know who submitted them, but it really made me sad. If I hadn't been at Bingo that night, hanging out with cool people, drinking cheap beer - I probably would have sat in my self-loathing all night.

Being 'big' or 'voluptous' or 'curvy' never bothered me .... until just this year (weird, right? After four years of establishing myself as a plus-sized, curvy model - all of a sudden, it really really bothers me)... Literally, I feel like I am going to start having eating disorders or something... I cannot explain to you. But that site, did absolutely nothing positive for my mindset.....

I hope this feeling goes away soon. I do not like it one bit.
