* This week could really not go any slower. To begin with, I have horrible cramps. I’m also going through a bit of emotional distress- which means no sleep, emotional eating, and about 3 times the amount of alcohol that I usually consume.
*Why am I in a glass cage of emotion? Aside from the cramps, and the fact that The Last House on the Left has scarred me for life, I hate it that some of the people closest to me are going through a rough time. I know everything will happen that is supposed to happen and all that cliched bullshit (which I actually do believe) but in the mean time, I keep imagining myself walking through a storm, crying, while Travis’s “Why does it Always Rain on me” blares in the background.
*Travis Wall was my absolute favorite contestant on So You think You Can Dance and … well nothing… I just love him, that’s all.
*Tomorrow is Tuesday, and that means I get to watch So You think you can Dance. It comes on again on Wednesday.Therefore; I might be getting an a slightly better mood.
*On Friday, (in 4 days!) my friend and I are going to road trip to Austin to visit my little sister and celebrate her Birthday. I love my sister dearly and I really can’t believe she’s all grown up!! Plus, a road trip is always good for the soul, especially when you hold the key to a perfect road trip play list.
*Austin City Limits is this weekend in Austin.
*I didn’t get tickets because when they went on sale, I was too poor to afford them. I was hoping to save up a little money and try to find someone to buy them from.
*I”m still too poor to afford tickets. How does a paycheck go so fast? I have to survive on a very little amount of money for the next two weeks. Luckily, I can have been through this many times in the past, and I know how to live off of black beans and vodka.
*I actually do know how a paycheck goes so fast. A kickass weekend. My favorite moment of the past weekend has to be around 3:00am on Friday night. I was at a house party playing beer pong. Someone decided it would be a good idea to put on Miley Cyrus’s “Party in the USA.” You haven’t lived life until an entire garage full of twenty-something-year-olds (half of them being of the straight male variety) burst into song and dance to a Miley Cyrus song. Priceless.
*It’s finally getting cool enough where hanging out in a garage is comfortable again. You can sit outside for over an hour without your legs getting stuck to the seat. You no longer have to religiously apply baby powder to every region of your body.
*Shit. The weather is changing. I don’t have a single pair of pants that fit me. Last year I wore clothes that were two sizes too big because I couldn’t afford new clothes. I need to go shopping or I’m going to spend the winter holding my pants up, walking around like a real life “Jared from Subway” poster. It seems a little funny now, but in a couple of weeks it’s not going to be so funny when I moon my entire office. I guess I could just forgo buying new pants and just get some full coverage underwear instead…
*Which brings me back to the money thing.
*But I don’t want to end this on a negative note.
*If I could afford it, The Gap is an option for jeans. Not my first choice option… but still. I heard on NPR this morning that Donald Fisher, the co-founder of The Gap, passed away. I always get a little sad whenever I hear that someone has died. However, anytime anyone mentions The Gap, my first thought is- shame on my parents for letting my entire Jr. High wardrobe consist of Gap denim tank tops, jean shorts (or jorts, if you will,) overalls, and(Non Gap) Umbros. Then I remember my that second favorite Spike Jones commercial of all time, just so happens to be for The Gap.
*I could end this by once again telling you all both how excited I am that Spike Jones’s Where the Wild Things Are comes out next week.
**Or I could use this commercial as a transition to let you know I will be making some changes on the site in the next couple weeks. It’s still early in the process, but my friend has been working on a header and a theme which I am really excited about. I don’t like the way the page currently looks, and I am really ready for a new layout. I threw this one up when I started, basically just so I could get started. I’m still really new at this, so if anyone has any WordPress advice about what works best, or how to work this cluster-mother of a site, or any advice about keeping up a blog in general-I’m all ears!
