Oh what a day! There were about eight community events going on tonight in town. I only committed to three.

Then, Roomie needed to go to Tri for a doctor appointment. It went loooong and I didn’t make it to one of the three.


BUT one I DID make it to was Othello’s first live comedy night! Professional comedians, y’all! They made plenty of jokes about Othello (that were funny) but apparently they had a good time.

AND I got to interview them after the show.

So that was fun!

Except one of the guys was saying something serious and insightful and the other guy was making funny faces behind his back and I kept laughing.

I needed this. It’s been a long week.

Live comedy — one of my favorite things in the whole word.

I laughed.  A lot. And I hear that laughing burns calories. Good thing, didn’t make it to the gym today!

Of course, the comedy started long before the actual show.

Roomie’s doctor was quite the funny man today.

He told her about something that could be wrong with her. Then he said that it’s probably not it.

She asked if he could check anyway, if there was a chance.

He said, “Well, yes. There is a chance you’ll see a zebra run across the highway on the way home. Still probably not going to happen.”

We LOLed.

We are pretending I posted this yesterday. SHHH.

That way, I can still do one later today and not keep doing combo posts.

Except I’ll probably forget later. Oh well.

A couple things today, Monday, Feb. 27. Of course.

First, this picture makes me LOL, especially with my new “Oh, crap, I gotta work out because the doctor says I’m too fat” lifestyle.

Another thing that made me LOL was this picture, which I dedicate to my dear friend Rachelle. Even if I think she and her boy are sickeningly cute. Sickeningly.

In news of things I don’t much love today, we finally got the snow Sunday night everyone else got this weekend. So when I opened my front door at 5 a.m. yesterday, I was surprised and cranky.

And I had to scrape several inches of snow and ice off my car.

So that was nice. Not.

But, it was pretty.

Ok, maybe this is going to turn into an every-other-day blog. I’m trying, I’m trying. I just forget.

Let’s see, Things I Love.

I had fun at Oklahoma rehearsals last night! We did a readthrough because they finally got scripts in. I don’t get one, though, because I don’t have any lines! BUT I do have a part! Ish. I get to be mad at one of the boys on stage during the last few lines of the play. I don’t have a name (Except for So-and-So’s wife) but I get a little comedy moment! I hope people laugh at me! (Something normal people don’t say).

Also, I went to the free movie showing at the theater yesterday and saw Tower Heist. It wasn’t as much of a comedy as I was expecting. It has some goofy people in it so I thought it’d be goofy. It was more of just a heist movie. I even cried. Sad tears not laughing so hard I’m crying tears. Weird.

I also pumped some Adele and went on a long walk during my lunch break. I didn’t clear my head as much as I would have liked but it was still nice. I am trying to move more so I don’t just get blobbier and blobbier.

Of course, Natalie Dee did say it best.

Also, on the funny charts, check out this video on online dating. It made me LOL. A lot.

There was also this typo in the police reports this week. It makes it sound like Gollum from the Lord of the Rings is talking about time measurements.

I also finished a couple books in the last few days. (Don’t worry, Rikki, darling, I’m working my way through Phantom of the Opera, too. I do many, many things at once).

Here’s a quote that exactly describes my life, taken from The Pajama Girls of Lambert Square by Rosina Lippi.

“I like difficult old women,” she said. “I’m in training to become one myself.”

Here’s another quote. A bit of advice from Ellen DeGeneres in her newest book, Seriously…I’m kidding.

However you choose to live your life, just try to enjoy it as much as you can. Fill yourself with joy. (Not the dishwashing liquid.) And accept what life throws at you — the good, the bad, the ugly, the awkward, the fun, the boring, the sweet, the sour, the salty, the ripe, the unripe … I’m sorry, I have to be right back. I just got really hungry.

To top it all off, this happened:

So, there’s that.

I watched Casablanca today!

Always nice to see Mr. Bogart and Ms. Bergman. They truly are movie stars.

They don’t make movies like that any more.

Then, I watched a Indian movie called Like Stars on Earth.

It was about a little boy with dyslexia who is shamed by everyone in school because he can’t read or write.

Then, a new art teacher comes along and saves him through the world of art, something he is absolutely amazing at.

It was sappy, had musical numbers and was almost sickeningly sweet.

Isobbedat the end. Not cute little tears. Nope. Big ole ugly sobs.

I’m pretty glad I was home alone.

Also today, I went to the local community breakfast with the g-rents. I miss them.

I’m definitely glad I moved out, but I wish I saw them more.

TILT Feb. 15 and 16, 2012

Apparently, after a long post with lots of pictures and all that, I felt like I didn’t have to post yesterday.

It certainly couldn’t be that I forgot!

Yesterday was pretty boring. Work. Errands. Bell choir practice.

Nothing too exciting. I read a little. Watched a movie. Watched some comedy. (Yes, AlzolaComedyFest 2012 is still continuing. I can’t stop watching!)

Today, all-day meeting.

Hung out a lot with the police chief and the county prosecutor. They’re pretty cool dudes. They both tease me a lot.

The police chief passed me a note during the meeting with a tip for Scrabble.

So that’s got to count for something.

Tonight, I’m going to a Young Professionals event. Gonna meet some professional people, y’all. I hope they don’t notice that I’m just a poser.

Whhhaaa? Posting already? It’s still in the a.m.!

But I have things to love today already. I mean, it IS a day dedicated to love!

Happy Valentine’s Day amigos!

Remember my quest for geocaches with the boys? Well, we dressed up in pirate stuff when we went out there, so it’d be like a treasure hunt.

So, the kids sent me  valentine today. Chocolates. On teh front, it says “We treasure you!” And then each signed it. Perfection.

I also got a gift from their mom which was rolo, wrapped in red paper, with a “wick” hanging out, that says “Valentine, you are dynamite!”

Add that to the bottle of wine and more chocolate from other coworker. I’m doing pretty OK.

AND I’m spending my evening schmoozing with the old ladies from my book club.

So, yeah, if I’m not sexy and romantic I don’t know what is.

Of course, someday I may have a valentine. And when I do, I hope he loves me enough to do something like this guy. It’s the funniest thing I’ve seen in a while and definitely is a TILT.

Plus, on Valentine’s Day, I like to look my heart-ed best. Just like any time there is an semblance of a theme or holiday.

So, yeah, rocking a shirt that sparkles today.

Love you guys!

The first thing I love about today is that it’s over.

It was the worst day I’ve had in a while. Exhausted, hungry, cranky. I had to call the police on someone, not just to check on something. No one was calling me back. I wasn’t prepared for the week. Things kept falling apart.

It just wasn’t good.

Now, I know you’re not supposed to eat your feelings.

But, sometimes, you just gotta.

Breakfast came at 5:30 this morning, when I had just gotten to work. I didn’t know it was going to go downhill rapidly.

So I was eating two things I’m kinda obsessed with right now — Greek yogurt and the lemonade Vitamin Water.

I even added some fresh raspberries to the yogurt.

It was heaven.

Then, I didn’t get to have lunch until 4 p.m. So I was pretty hungry and pretty cranky. So I ate the things we had in the house I love most — tacos and potstickers. I don’t care that they don’t go together.

They were delicious.

Another thing I love today is something Padre saw and sent me. It made me laugh pretty good and I pretty much think I need one.

It’s the Smart is Sexy version of the traditional mud flap girl.
