Three Fabulous Things

Let's just recap my weekend, shall we? Wherein three fabulous things happened...

#1 Fabulous Thing:
Praise the Universe, I finally got my laptop back with a shiny new hard drive and lots of space to cram all sorts of grey matter I want to preserve for posterity. Yay, and huggy thanks to Waynerdawg for making it happen. You da king.

#2 Fabulous Thing:
I made my performance on the "Listen to Your Mother" Show. What a blast! I think I only flubbed one line, but it wasn't the tongue-twister I had feared, so I probably drifted somewhere else when that happened—like to the OMG-I'm-speaking-to-300-people place. Or maybe I was still freaked out at being the person to follow the lovely and incomparable Jenny Lawson (The Bloggess). It was like, Really? I have to follow her? That's the equivalent of Jan Brady on the kitten heels of Marsha Marsha Marsha. Wait, who's Jan again, and why is she stuttering like Porky Pig? Uh, be-a-be-a-be—uh, that's all she wrote, folks.

The incredibly talented LTYM cast, post-show 
(minus Jenny and Kristin).
I'm the short shit in the middle.
Actually, LTYM was huge fun for me, and ham that I am (isn't that what Moses said? Ham that I am? Or maybe it was Dr. Seuss, who sounds a lot like Blythe Jewell, by the way—though Blythe is much prettier, with a lollipop in her hair and potty words in her mouth—this would all be clear to you if you'd been at the show!), I've decided I need a new career in public speaking. If only I had some real wisdom to impart that people would pay to hear while refraining from throwing things. I would so dig it.

I want to publicly thank Wendi Aarons and Jennifer Sutton for the awesome job they did in producing this show and for their incredible contributions on stage. They are two smart, funny, wonderful women. And I'd also like to thank my sisters in writing, all the multi-talented and lovely LTYM cast members. How about we take this show on the road, girls?

More to follow on LTYM later, including links and pics and stuff.

#3 Fabulous Thing:
After the show, I was totally allowed to eat carbs again. Woot-woot! My ingestion this weekend, post LTYM, consisted of chips and queso and salsa, chips and queso and salsa, and, I admit, chips and queso and salsa—and a waffle. Two of the best food groups ever.

Look at you! You're a petite little flower.

XLMIC said...

How cool about LTYM! May you get your public speaking career!
AND about getting to eat carbs again ;-)

mac said...

Wow ! I bet you were the shining star of the show :-)

I agree about it being time to revisit bringing the troops home. We have a very good reason now. We can use this death as a "withdrawal with dignity" type thing. We got the (a) bad guy, come home now!

Murr Brewster said...

I think you can eat carbs all the time if you pose with one hip forward. I'm counting on it, anyway.

Danmark said...

Hi there. I really appreciate the points you made. I don’t think I’ve actually thought about it in that way. I can really appreciate how you approached the subject matter and what you said really gave me a new perspective. Thanks for taking the time to write this all out.

slommler said...

You sound much taller on your blog!

Pat said...

Congratulations on the show!

Bejewell said...

You're absolutely gorgeous. I think you have plenty of wisdom to share and I'd happily go to any show you wanted to put on -- especially if it involved boobage.

Because seriously, those things are magnificent.

I might have to write a poem about them.

XOXOXO

Bejewell said...

P.S. You flubbed nothing. You were fabulous.

Jenny, the Bloggess said...

You are amazing and awesome. Also, I kind of love that I'm not in that picture because everyone else is like a willowy damn twig and I'd be the yeti in the picture.

No one wants to be the yeti in the picture.

HOOOOOOORAY!!!!!!!!!!

I've missed you! Glad you're back and that your computer is fixed - and here's to eating carbs again.

PS: LTYM = totally-super-awesome.

drollgirl said...

Linda Medrano said...

I'm so glad it all went so beautifully. You are a stunning young woman! And I have no doubt you rocked!

Midlife Jobhunter said...

So sorry I missed it. Family duty called. Wish I could stop carbs for two days and look like you.

Bella said...

can't wait to see the video! I'm sure it was a total blast!

Breathe said...

You rocked the house, baby! I was there and am here to shout it out.

I can say I knew you when you were merely smelly (vs fragrant). Lol

Carbs? I don't get the connection.

Udder Hysteria said...

Awesomeness! Wish I coulda seen it.... But the miles are an issue. I'm pretty sure you did the , um, family proud! Smooches and hugs mi hermana!

Julie said...

You go girl! Good for you! Carb it up baby!

Come to my blog and tell me your song before you go into a carb coma though.

formerlyonlyamovie said...

Congrats on the show! xo

♥ Braja said...

Right, so I had my head turned for FIVE MINUTES and in that time you become, like, some international celebrity, doing speaking engagements and becoming a star....

Unreal.

I love it :))

Turquoise, aquamarine, I know, I know, I haven't forgotten. Can you BELIEVE how long it's taking me?? Just makes me keep thinkin' of ya :)) xoxoxo Oh, and yeah, I did a shout out for you. Cos I love you. See how much I care....

injaynesworld said...

I had no doubt that you would rock it. Congratulations. I hope they got it on video. I'd love to see it. Please reprint a post of what you performed.

And you're not short. The others are clearly mutant Amazon women.

secret agent woman said...

Congratulations on all those fabulous things!!!

Michelle Wells Grant said...

You. Are. Awesome. I daresay this is the beginning of something exciting for you. Just watch!

Young American Wisdom said...

This is fantastic! I could literally spend the entire day sitting on my ass with a cup of coffee exploring your blog...something I may do next week! I'm a newbie, 3 weeks in, to this whole blogging thing so I'm still trying to figure out how to make the rounds. I'm so glad you found mine so now I can enjoy yours. Happy Mother's Day!

Madame DeFarge said...

I'm not sure what amazes me the most. Being able to eat carbs again or the sheer height of women in the US.

I'm Jane said...

I clearly need to catch up on goings-on around here. Sounds like a hoot!

And, darlin', we need to get you some 5-inch heels. :)

Fred Miller said...

You're the cute shit in the middle.
