crap no. 17

Promising your readers that you’ll be back on September 1st, and then spending six months doing jack all to prepare, may not have been the best idea in the history of ideas. Though entirely motivated to step away from the white noise that is food blogging, I’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed by the (self-imposed) pressure to do something unique with this space.

Around August 25th, I started to panic. (June 1st would have been an ideal start date for this sort of freaking out, but I think it’s pretty clear that I’m a fan of procrastinating.) I tossed around the idea of starting from scratch – finding a new name and domain – but couldn’t bring myself to do it. I like it here. Also, I’m incredibly lazy.

So, because I have everything and nothing to say, I thought I’d mark the launch of my new but totally not new blog by sharing this delightful photo with you. I’m confident that most people wouldn’t show this photo to anyone (ever), which qualifies as unique in my mind. I think you’ll really enjoy it, and I believe it’s the best way to sum up our future together:

Me, passed out, drooling in my bite guard.

You, waiting for me to get my shit together.

this is what i'll look like when i'm dead // movita beaucoup

This should give you a pretty good idea of what I’ll look like when I’m dead. (photo credit: 2.0)


Just keepin’ it real, you know?

    But, I’m gorgeous and shiny (and a little bit scary.) Come to think of it, so are you. Welcome back, Movita!

    That’s the first photo that I’ve ever witnessed of you and I’m going on record to say that you are even gorgeous when dead. Just sayin. Happy to see ‘yer mug. Dead and all :))))))))

      I hope when I’m actually dead, they’ll slap some make up on me and put me in a nice dress…

    Love it 🙂 Looking forward to more drooling, cat-photo-bombed pictures in the future.

    Photo = fabulous. Latest post = fun to read. I’m excited for whatever you’ve got coming regardless of domain name, topic, timeliness, etc. 🙂

    Clearly, the cat is amused — or bemused.

    • movita beaucoup September 1, 2015 at 1:04 pm #

      She may or may not have been waiting for her breakfast.

      • AHAnto September 1, 2015 at 9:08 pm #

        Just trying to decide if it was time to eat your nose.

        • movita beaucoup September 2, 2015 at 5:36 am #

          Effie is a very sweet cat. Unless she’s hungry.

    Looking forward to Crap No. 18, more “unique” photos and sarcasm.

    Luv it…luv u…u ROCK!

  11. Karen September 1, 2015 at 9:21 pm #

    You don’t have to do anything new or amazing on your blog. You already are amazing. We love you for what ever you write about. We just want you….we love your stories, 2.0, your kitties, and of course TUCKER!

  12. movita's sister September 1, 2015 at 9:33 pm #

    Really and truly, I was looking at this photo yesterday and wondering how much trouble I’d get in if I posted it somewhere.

    • Karen September 1, 2015 at 10:17 pm #

      You should have posted it. Sister Love!

    • movita beaucoup September 2, 2015 at 5:35 am #

      Effie would have killed you dead.

  13. Wanda September 1, 2015 at 9:58 pm #

    One brave woman. Salute!

    That photo is perfection! The cat waiting for you to wake up…. wonderful. Do whatever you want. I’ll be reading!

    • movita beaucoup September 2, 2015 at 5:34 am #

      Effie does this every morning. It’s pretty creepy, but I get the same way when I’m hungry…

  16. Willow @ Will Cook For Friends September 2, 2015 at 2:08 pm #

    Yaaaay, Movita’s back! I think your “crap I’ve been meaning to tell you” posts are one of my most-looked-forward-to reads on the interweb… and this one did NOT disappoint. I didn’t think the day would come we’d see an actual photo of you, and then there you are, in all your drooling glory. Thank you, 2.0, for having the presence of mind to snap such an epic photograph. Thank you.

    hehe!! you’ve reminded me that i need to wear my mouth guard more often! looking forward to more posts whenever you feel like it! ^__^

  18. Doug September 2, 2015 at 8:51 pm #

    Ah, Sleeping Beauty. No doubt with visions of sugarplums dancing around in that head of yours, Rachael.

    Or, are you gearing up for Halloween with the black kitty, Mr. Evil, and you pretending to be deceased?

    Either way, welcome back! You have been missed.


    • movita beaucoup September 4, 2015 at 8:28 am #

      Thanks, Doug! And yes, I ALWAYS dream about food.

  19. Lady Tofu September 2, 2015 at 11:37 pm #

    The cat is ready, that is all that matters.
    p.s.I am sure there could be endless posts about The Rutherfords…..

    • movita beaucoup September 4, 2015 at 8:27 am #

      Well, they ARE still being annoyingly awesome…

  20. jenneruth September 3, 2015 at 4:47 pm #

    Wha..? After all this time wondering and a picture of your face just appears? I feel like I should have been warned first. Not that I’m unhappy, I just thought there’d be a big unveiling party or something.

    • movita beaucoup September 4, 2015 at 8:26 am #

      Oh, there was a party. It was an exclusive, VIP type of thing. TMZ was there. I guess you didn’t get the invite?

      • jenneruth September 4, 2015 at 2:04 pm #

        It….must have gotten lost in the mail….

  21. Melissa@EyesBigger September 10, 2015 at 6:16 pm #

    I love how the cat is just staring at the camera as if to say “this is the human i have to put up with every. single. day.”

    • movita beaucoup September 11, 2015 at 8:02 am #

      Effie is the originator of Resting Bitch Face.

  22. Christine September 10, 2015 at 10:31 pm #

    I can’t figure out if you photo bombed Effie or the other way ’round. Either way, you look really, really good…or really, really..ummm…well….the cat looks good.

    • movita beaucoup September 11, 2015 at 8:02 am #

      I WAS ASLEEP. Effie was doing the photobomb, ya nutter! (She gets impatient when I haven’t prepared her breakfast in a timely fashion.)
