@karenology The cashier at the grocery store this week commented on how much cheese I was buying. (And the, um, bodily issues that follow eating too much cheese.) I was a little embarrassed... but powered through. BECAUSE OF CHEESE.
THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS TOO MUCH CHEESE!
I mean, I have other take-aways from this, but I first needed to express my love of cheese.
I. can't. wait. until Barry does SNL cameos with Brian Williams. Just the idea of it is making me so giddy.
@adorable-eggplant NOOOOOO STAY AWAY FROM MY NEIGHBORHOOD!!!
@up cubed Here is a puppy that a local dachshund rescue currently has, and made me smile:
WHYYYY ARE THERE NO COMMENTS YET?
I made the mistake of reading the comments section on an article about a lawsuit against California's new standards for egg-laying hens and now I feel all sad and was hoping to find solace in the open thread. Don't let me down, pinners!
Also, I live in Austin, and my commute takes me through downtown and now it is COMPLETELY OVERRUN WITH SXSW-ERS AND MY COMMUTE HAS DOUBLED. AND APPARENTLY THAT MAKES ME FEEL UNHAPPY FEELINGS. Maybe that's just because I don't get to go to the parties... I have to work. :/
@adorable-eggplant I ended up downing a bottle of wine and then cry-singing along with The Beatles special from last week. I'm calling it a win.
@Rookie (not the magazine) (not that there's anything wrong with that) I did one open-mic night. I was TERRIFIED. So much so, that I didn't tell a single person that I knew that I was doing it, so that if it was horrible, no one would ever talk to me about it. I did... okay. I got some laughs. Not nearly as many as I thought I deserved, but you know. :) That was about a year ago, and I haven't had the guts to do one again. You'll have to keep us posted! Maybe your courage will rub off on me?
I'm gonna rant for a minute. Here I was thinking I would be complaint-free for the open thread this week, and then my boss called me. So, I do improv and have a show next week, AND I'm about to start training for a (very short) triathlon (but need a lot of help/practice in the swimming part). And then he tells me "you need to book a hotel room in XX city next week, and we might be looking at a 4-week project. Thanks for your flexibility." I mean, it's fine and probably a stupid thing to be cranky about, but damnit, I had stuff I wanted to do in town for those next four weeks. Rant over.
@adorable-eggplant I had a Galentine's event last night! It might be one of my new favorite things to celebrate.
My husband is going out of town tonight, so I think my V-day will consist of jammies, wine, and probably a pizza. And I will watch ANYTHING I WANT. (Surely there's an SVU marathon on somewhere... right?)
