Beyond the Books Blog Hop: My pastimes + Giveaway!

banner made by Frankie Rose

So I'm supposed to talk about my hobbies outside of books and blogging.... To be honest, I don't do anything that people would consider "hobbies". So I thought I would make a top ten list of things I like to do with my "spare time" (wtf is that?)

10.) Visit cemeteries. Really. I like them. 
9.) Watch horrible reality TV like Duck Dynasty, Call of the Wild man and the Amish Mafia. I also scream at the TV when my  mom watches Finding Bigfoot. Those people give scientists a bad name. The purpose of science is NOT to prove something right, but to DISPROVE it. 
8.) Listen to 80's music. 

7.) Dream of becoming a famous Mexican banda and nortena singer. Sing songs about, and work for, the mafia and go down in a blaze of glory. Of course, having a child has tampered this dream. But I still spend a lot of time thinking about it. 
6.) Sleeping. <-- that, my friends, is a real hobby. 
5.) Search the Internet for the grossest things ever. I usually use words like skin, disease, warts.....
4.)Make Apocalypse plans. I think I may have to become some sort of pimp/drug/ arms dealer to ensure survival. 
3.) Brush up on current events in the Native American community. 
2.)Play with my daughter and nephew. I recently taught them ring around the poesy. I then told the older kids it was a song about the black death and did google searches of the plague to gross them out. 
1.) Make Tacos. 

Ok so I was going to talk you through some Taco recipes but yeah I suck at writing recipes so instead I'll just post pictures. 

Taco pizza from Casey's. I made this one. 
Mexican toppings...kinda I got lazy and didn't make my own pico. Plus there are no limes.
American toppings. 
American tacos-ground beef and traditional toppings like sour cream, lettuce, cheese and tomatos. 

Mexican tacos-the american way. Pork cut into strip and pan fried. Most mexicans don't put cheddar cheese or sour cream on their tacos. They do use pico de gaello and limes.

  1. Are we twins separated at birth? roflmao - I could have written this post. Definitely need the Corona with the taco.... and if you don't I highly recommend "Doomsday Preppers" for your TV viewing.

    1. The Coronita bottles are salt and pepper shakers that I stole from Diamond Daves when I was in college. LMFAO. I do not watch Doomsday Preppers. I might have to check it out!

  2. lmao - loving the list. Slight disturbed but loving it!

  3. Hilarious! I've never had a pork taco.
