You just don't understand. I have been waiting for this since it was announced and now I get to SEE it. Roger Bart, Sutton Foster, Megan Mullaly, Andrea Martin, AND Chris Fitzgerald? All on one stage? To a Mel Brooks iconic story? Pinch me.

and then there was one...

This is purely an exercise for me. I'm not sure anyone reads this since the update thing NEVER happens, but I need to put a few things out in the great void.

Everyone in the great world has a problem that makes their life imperfect. And everyone's problems vary in degrees of difficulty. I can no longer pretend that I am ok to appease the masses. I am NOT ok. I have not been ok for a while now. I'm tired of being everyone's therapist and getting nothing back in return. It's as if asking how I am on a day to day basis would cause bodily harm. I have good days and I have bad, and sometimes I feel like maybe I'm turning my problems into something bigger than I should, but you know what? They are a big deal because they are mine. Just like anyone else's. I'm done trying to push aside what I feel for the greater good. I've done it my entire life and I'm sick and tired of it. I deserve to have bad days. I deserve to cry. And I deserve to wallow in my lot in life because in my degree of difficulty, life really sucks right now. And since I have listened to everyone else, it's their turn to listen to me.

Snow Day!

It's snowing in south carolina. Wheeee! It's only a few inches, but it's still the south and we are in no way equipped for even the slightest bit of snow, therefore the world has shut down. Not that I am complaining. I love snow. It's so pretty and clean looking. And I'm all surrounded by trees, and everything is perfect right now. I plan on galavanting around in said snow before the days is done. Until then, I am content to curl up in my fleece pjs and watch. It always amazes me how everything seems so quiet and peaceful, as if I'm the only person around for miles. Anywho...

In other news, I was listening to NPR yesterday and they were doing a report on how California wants to be the top state for the primary elections. Because according to snooty california election people they should be first before New Hampshire, and Iowa. To that I must say, NO. New Hampshire will always be the jumping off point for the primaries. Josh went to Nashua because that's whats sons do for old friends of their fathers. The end. Period.

real life is overrated

I nver update this thing, but I don't feel like the only one. Life happens and it really sucks. Not much has been going on, however. It's finally cold. About damn time. We even had sleet. It just pisses me off that it gets warmer and warmer, and no one seems to get that it's because we are killing the environment. My dad is currently in spokane, wa for business and I am so jealous. He's got snow and rain and highs of 20 degrees. So not fair. Of course he's pissed since he's all pro the sun.

Let's see, in other news...Christmas and birthday came and went, which I am eternally grateful for. I hate Christmas and I hate my birthday just as much. If you ever have the option of working at a mall during the holidays I would like to suggest that you don't do it, because I did and became the angriest person alive.

Now that it is January, I've become incredibly lethargic and unable to motivate myself. I don't understand why you have to start a brand new year right after the holidays. All of December is spent stressing over family, gifts, money, food, and then you have to try to wipe the slate clean a week later and become this 'insert your own resolution here' type person. I need a vacation from vacation. Why can't we be like the Chinese and celebrate the new year a little later? What's wrong with saying "I just spent 2 weeks in retail/family hell and I would like to not feel like a failure for not wanting to exercise and diet immediately." What's difficult about that?

I do hope that everyone had a good holiday/new year. I got into a wreck on new year's day, which accounts for a lot of my "clean slate" bitterness. Nothing major, and we didn't even deal with insurance, but it was my fault cause my breaks suck, and I went with the guy to a body shop and paid to have his bumper fixed. $150. Meh.

I am looking toward taking the GRE for grad school. I hate taking tests. I'm really bad at it. But I have to do it, so there's that. I even got off my ass today and went to my alumni and requested transcripts. go me. I've started looking intently at George Mason University. Which, I need to pose the question to cantbesilent...Is that a good school? I mean, I've been a frequent visitor of the website and talk to the administration people and the department heads, so that's been nice, but overall, is it worth it?

I would have to move to DC, which is fine since I still want to move to DC. I think I could be a much happier person if I were to go back to school. GMU seems to have everything I'm looking for including a master's degree in art history. I need to talk to my cousin about a living situation, since she is living in capitol hill. I have no idea how they handle the out-of-state requirements since the dc/va/md area are all separate districts and states.

I'm finally gonna see Dreamgirls tonight. I can't believe that my musical ass hasn't been. And as for musicals, I will probably be doing summer theatre again this year. Except the line up really sucks. South Pacific, Thoroughly Modern Millie (the only good one), Seussical (WTF?), and Children of Eden. And that's all I've got to say about that. Nothing really interesting going on, but I guess that's better than the extreme drama that takes up residency in my life.

Today is my day of Jubilee!

Today is one of the most glorious days I have ever experienced in my political life. Rumsfeld out and my Dems in! It makes my hear feel all aflutter. I am such a political fangirl whore, but I just am in love with my country today. Which is a change from all the guilt I used to feel for being an American. Funny how the winds of change can blow a little pride my way. Watch out 2008, here we come! SQUEE!

The Warner brothers and their Warner sister, Dot

I'm officially pissed. Some girl just got prize on Letterman for reciting all the countries in the world in 60 seconds. And how did she do it? She sang the Animaniacs Nations of the World song. I could do that. AND I could do the US states and their capitals. Using a song is cheating. Whatever.

I've become what I despise.

So, I watched the Emmys tonight because the Emmys used to be a ZOMG event. I mean Conan was hosting, and there was to be Bradley Whitford/Matthew Perry squeeing. I had to watch.

But half-way through the show I noticed an interesting tidbit. I don't watch televistion anymore. At. All. I've become everything I despise. TV used to pwn me. I had my schedule set. Even in college when tv was used as a procrastination device. I always had it on. I can't remember the last time I turned on the tv in my bedroom. It's got lots of dust on it if that's any indication. Probably 3/4 of the shows nominated, I had never heard of and then there were the shows that didn't get nominated that everyone seems to be bitching about on the pre-show.

I mean, I'm not a "I don't watch tv" elitist. I hate those people. But, I do go to work at 7:30 every morning. Then, go to rehearsal for whatever musical theatre production I'm currently in, or go teach dance, or go take dance. All these things add up to me never being home, so I have no idea that tv exists. And quite frankly I don't think they're writing good shows anymore. Grey's Anatomy? Hate it. Desperate Housewives? Tried it twice and hated it. Lost? Boring. 24? Too much of a commitment. And the rest is just a hodge-podge of WTF?/You can't be serious.

So, tv people. Write. Better. Shows. Like, I don't know *cough*Studio 60*cough*. Yeah, I will be watching that. And until then, my favorite tv shows will remain the shows of the past. Friends, The West Wing, The X-Files and Frasier. Thank god for DVDs.

So, I'm trying to change my layout colors, which means you must ignore the random changes, but is there anyone who knows how to add a header pic? I'm making one myself, but I have no idea how to put it in. Help?

fruit cups

Ok, so I'm sitting here, snacking on a del monte fruit cup before rehersal tonight, and I'm struck by something odd. The cherries. When I was little I ate the fruit cups all the time. They would always be inserted into lunch bags, pic-nic baskets, afternoon snacks, but my mother never bought the ones with the cherries. I knew they existed cause my friends got cherries in their fruit cup, but me, not so much. She would even let me pick them out at the grocery store with the stipulation of "no cherries." What's wrong with the cherries? Do they have less nutritional value? I mean it's not like the pears, grapes, and peaches soaked in sugar syrup get points for their uber-nutrition.

Of course now, when I shop, I pick the ones with the cherries, and save them for last. So, I pose this question to the great LJ void. What did cherries ever do to my mother?
