This week I’m…



-Breaking Bad. I’m so addicted. I keep having to re-watch episodes because when my boyfriend falls asleep, I KEEP WATCHING. I don’t mind at all. I want to give Walt a big giant hug, even though sometimes I just want to shake him and tell him to chill the fuck out.

-Beasts of a Southern Wild. We planned on checking it out a few weeks ago because the boyfriend heard it was filmed in Louisiana, and he loves all things LA. When I heard it was nominated for various awards and that it was available to watch without having to make a trip to the theater, I was all about it. I’ve heard mixed reviews, but I was definitely impressed. I’ll warn you though… if you  are at all sensitive or emotional at heart, you very well may cry for about an hour after the film is over.

I know I did. It made me want to call every single person that I love to tell them how important they are to me. But I didn’t because I fell asleep, so if you’re reading this- I love you!


-Everything Lance Armstrong. At this point, I would only give a shit if he doped puppies and fed them lethal doses of chocolate. I hope he disappears into the world of has-beens, until he shows back up again on a reality show in 15 years with a REAL drug problem. That’s when I’ll pay attention. ENTERTAINMENT.

Sad about: How completely full of suck I found 1600 Penn to be.

I’m pretty sure I’ve mentioned before how I have a huge old-man crush on Bill Pullman.

It started when I was 9 years old and had my first viewing of Space Balls. It grew ten-fold when I was in Middle School and became obsessed with my all-time favorite rom-com, While You Were Sleeping. It grew into full-on obsession, make a t-shirt- with- his -face- on -the- front-ville after I saw Independence Day. He has the perfect combination of normal guy/older man/sexy-gruff-voice appeal.

Sadly, 1600 Penn was not the Second Term as President for Bill that I hoped it to be. In fact, I tried to watch the pilot twice, and still couldn’t tell you what it was about. I kept getting distracted by the dirt under my fingernails. It takes a lot for me to be bored enough to notice the dirt under my fingernails.

Scared about: My upcoming dental work. I’ve already cancelled my appointment once, but now that the left side of my face is constantly aching, I don’t think I can put it off any longer. Plus my amazing aunts have offered to help me with the costs in exchange for some consulting work.

In a way, I feel like I got the worst part over with.

Before my cleaning about a month ago, I hadn’t gone to the dentist in over 10 years. I was terrified that they were going to tell me that my teeth were rotting out of my face and that if I didn’t get $8000 worth of work done, I would be toothless in 15 years.

Sadly, my fear wasn’t far off. I have to get around $6,555 worth of dental work done, or I’ll be toothless in about 15 years.

At least I know what I’m in for.



Looking forward to: 

-Upcoming projects galore!  I’m excited to be choreographing, filming, and performing again over the next few weeks. I’ll tell you more about these projects as they get closer.

-If you get a chance, head over to The Institution Theater Award’s ballot (The TITies), and give me and some of the shows I’ve worked on this last year a vote. To be honest, I don’t know how I got nominated, I haven’t been around much lately… but I’m still honored! The Institution has done so much for me since I moved to Austin… they’ve always been so welcoming and have an amazing program.

Also, whether or not you got to see it-Dr Horrible’s Sing Along Blog was probably my favorite thing I did this year. Vote for everything involving that, please.
