Post it notes and Good friends are hard to find.

I had a great weekend, and I am bound and determined to ride on that weekend high until Wednesday when I can  start to get excited about the weekend again.

My brain isn’t on “write” mode just yet, but I will attempt to put at least a little information out there. “Attempt” being the key word here. I know, I know… it’s Tuesday… what the hell is wrong with me? I don’t know!!! I usually have the hardest time sleeping, but last night it was like someone, finally after 3 weeks, shut my brain off and tied my eyelids closed with steel. It was the first night in a long time that I’ve slept without either ambien or alcohol, which was great! Except for the fact that I am still exhausted today. I don’t feel like I’m coming down with anything, so I’m just gonna go with- the last month (or 3) have finally caught up with me, and that’s ok.

Bear with me, but first of all -I feel I need to play a little catchup on the goings on of my life, for those of you who are interested.

First off, I know I briefly mentioned it a while back, but last weekend I went down to Houston to see a dance show that my friend had written. This is a girl who I have known since I was about 9 through the community theater program in my hometown, but I hadn’t seen her in nearly 10 years. Craziness! She was always a great friend, but she really caught me off guard when she got in touch with me a while back and told me that she was now teaching dance and performing in Houston, and that she had written a dance show inspired by me! ME?

I wouldn’t have missed it for the world, and I’m glad I Jupiter or some other planet didn’t get in the way either. The story was based on a dancer named Carissa who along with her “soul,” (also named Carissa) takes a journey to a dark side and then in the end it appears she dies at a rave. I was a little sad that I died, but in the end she does appear to be brought back to life. My friend said there are several ways that you could look at it, but I’m choosing to go with she was just so tired after that crazy rave, that she decided to take a nap,  and her soul awakens her so that she doesn’t miss the new episode of Chuck. THAT I could relate to today.

The best part of the weekend was getting to catch up with my friend after all of these years, and also getting to spend some time with some of my other old friends who I don’t get to see very often.

Then this last weekend I got to spend some quality time doing nothing but laugh and watch movies with another group of friends that I don’t see often, even though they live fairly close.  I have realized that I have at least 10 people who I would fit into the BFF category, but it is sad how little most of these have to do with my everyday life These last two weeks have kind of made me nostalgic. It’s weird how much time goes by, and even though I’m conscious of the importance that these people have in my life, I rarely get the chance to tell them. I’ve also been thinking about how strange it is that people weave in and out of our lives, touching us in ways that they never have before with each appearance.

Anyways, I’m not trying to get all sentimental on your asses, I think I did enough of that last week.

So let’s move on to some post-it’s, shall we? For more great post-it’s check out Supah Mommy’s blog! It is the bomdiggity! or as it is more cooly said these days, the diggity!

friends for reall

Oh and both you Bill’s still have nothing on my boyfriend John Cusack. Though I do think Google is catching on to my evil plan to make this news known to the world. I keep dropping in Google searches, but I’m determined to make this happen. I will not give up. Suckas!

And this is a little unrelated, but that’s how I role. Lately whenever I’m feeling down, The Weepies have been my turn to music. I am not a fan of the puppets in this video, but I love love this song. And pretty much all of their music… Check it, fools.

    ooh poor cocktus. Definitely remember him when he was alive and healthy!

  • ScoMan

    That's awesome your friend wrote a show inspired by you. Very cool. Now a part of you will live in everyone who sees it. Kind of scary? Perhaps. But very awesome.

    And poor Cocktus. What a sad day.

  • ambermurphy

    Oh, Carissa. You are the only gal for me. Your posts just make my morning better. I wish we could hang out, eat ketchup, talk about John Cusack, and watch Twister.

  • Gregory Sherbine

    So sorry about Cocktus, but the allusion is hilarious.
    Thank you.

  • Lynn

    Dang what happened to the poor cocktus? I can't get enough ketchup either!

  • princessofsarcasm

    Oh geez….the pic of that cocktus had me spewing my diet coke! Poor baby. Do they make viagra for plants?

    “Anyways, I’m not trying to get all sentimental on your asses”.

    Prior to my reading that, it's EXACTLY what I was thinking . . . geez, this girl's got some heart today!!

    But you know what? I heart you!!

    Y'know, the idea of all these lovely ladies partying together was making my little Captain very happy and making him dance with joy. Then I saw naked Bill Pullman and the Captain shot right up inside my body and cried.

    Excuse my vulgarity but I haven't been to sleep yet due to a late night show and I'm thinking Ambien and alcohol sounds pretty bodacious right about now.

  • Dani

    I'm pretty sure noone on the planet has the right to judge how others look while working out, because we all look silly whether we plan it or not. You are just doing it on purpose for your enjoyment. Jeez folks, have some fun.

    Also, so very sorry about cocktus.

  • brittneymclain

    sorry about cocktus!! but the pictures made me LOL!!!

  • Nikki

    I love the movie Twister too! But never want to see Bill Paxton in the nude…ever. I hear ya on the friends bit. For some reason I seem to push my best friends to the side, maybe because we understand eachother better, so it's easier? Who knows. I'm sorry you died at a rave. Were you at all concerned that this girl may have a death wish for you? I'm sure that's not it…just wondering. Because I'm paranoid enough for the both of us.

  • lralln9

    LOVE the Weepies video!

  • Candice

    Dude, someone named a musical after you? That is AWESOME.

    Also, Cocktus is the funniest thing I have ever seen. EVER.

  • meg

    so cool that you have a dance show inspired by you! amazing.

    haha, those cocktus pictures are absolutely the best thing I have seen today. thank you.

  • Belle

    Poor pitiful cocktus!! Do you need me to send you Viagra?

  • Pollypoptart

    I know it shouldn't have but the before and after cactus photos made me laugh…

  • Sada

    Someone wrote a dance show about you DYING IN A RAVE??? I'm soooooo jealous. That sounds like a 90210 plotline. (Old-school 90210, not the one with Aunt Becky.)

  • Clevelandpoet

    cocktimus prime oh that made my day!

  • kathryn

    You crazy girl, you….I'm glad you've had time to re-connect with both old and recent friends. Life gets away from us sometimes, and we forget just how much fun hanging with friends can be! Hopefully, it'll remind you to stay in touch!

  • hiphophippie

    Oh Cocktus!!! I'm so sad!!! I wish I could ship you a Mrs. Cocktus. :(

    And that is so amazing that you're friend did that! Geez! But seriously, if I could write a dance show, I'd write one inspired on your amazingness too!!!

  • todayscliche

    Hey! I”m soo pumped that you visited my Blog and just LOVED this post! Hysterical!! I'm OBSESSED with ketchup, and will now be envisioning the flaccid cactus while in bed with hubby. Thanks a lot!

    The post it's totally crack me up. They filmed Twister really close to my house. In fact, they were supposed to blow up our silo for the film, but they found one that was less structurally sound just a mile from here….I'm glad they didn't blow up ours…how would anyone find our house without a tall silo you can see for three miles?
