hollybrooke: Rigby is jumping up and down on Mordecai's bed (Rigby jumping on Mordecai's bed)
It's a tad delayed, but Happy New Year to everyone!

So I made some resolutions for this year, and they are (in no particular order):
--to improve my social life. I want to meet new people and make new friends, because I unfortunately don't seem to have much of a life outside of work and the Internet. I need more in-real-life-friends.
--to improve my general health. I'm going to try to lose 50 pounds this year, not just to fit into a certain size, but at least half of this 50 pounds has come from the general stress of working at the grocery store. That's not good.
--to move the hell out. My parents and younger brother keep talking about the end of the world happening this year (which I firmly don't believe will happen), and I'm sorry, but if it does happen, I'd rather take my chances and die in the radiation than live the rest of my life in a bunker with them. I've read Anne Frank's diary. I don't want to go insane living with those morons any longer.
--to improve my art skills and get accepted into an art school with a good animation program (I'm looking at CalArts).


So, still with my boyfriend. (For the time being, anyway.) He was annoyed that I hadn't made any concrete New Year's Eve plans and that I wasn't including him in my no-plans. Uh, what? Sorry, but kind of a stupid reason to get pissed. If I hadn't really had any New Year's Eve plans, he shouldn't have taken it personally. I was perfectly content to just stay home, do some cleaning out and straightening up by myself. I kind of didn't want to be out in the cold or on the roads that night. And he knows I don't go out and party like I used to. Hell, even he admits to this. And why does he have to depend on me to have a plan? Hmm?

Well, we went out anyway, because I only knew of one shindig going on that night: Help Me Mommy's Rocky Horror New Year's Eve Show. There was a rave party going on before the show, so I figured if we're going to go out, let's just do that. And I got dressed up and did my hair and all of that. He didn't make much of an effort to get dressed up. If we're going to party, fine. I'm going to party and dance my ass off. He stuck by my side and....I'm sorry, but he can't dance worth a crap. It was kind of a pain in the ass, to be honest. And besides the fact that it was the Rocky Horror Picture Show (I really don't get to go like I used to, but we all know why I don't go as often anymore), it was kind of a crappy New Year's Eve. I wanted to chat up with some of my cast member friends after the show, but he wanted to leave right away.

He claims he had a good time. I tried, but was unsuccessful. Yep. The BF is cramping my style, and I don't like it. It's time I start looking around; hence, the resolution to improve my social life.


So....who else here thinks the world is going to end this year? Like I said, I don't. But my parents and my brother are buying into all of those dumb conspiracy theories about the December 21, 2012 thing, and sun spots, and Armageddon and the apocalypse and are actually making plans to make a freaking bunker in case the worst happens.

You want to know what I think? I think they need to turn off the H2 channel and read some actual scientific research. I don't like them watching that channel all the time. It's just going to get people riled up and anxious over nothing. If they're that concerned about sun spots and the planet going to shit, then maybe they need to start doing something to help take care of the planet. My brother used to date this girl who was all into conservation, and he always made fun of her and ragged on her for that stuff, but at least her heart was in the right place. I speak my opinion with my family, and they just laugh it off and don't take it seriously.

I think a lot of those conspiracy theories are bullshit. I think a lot of the world's weather problems are due to a shift in the axis (which happens every couple of hundred years or so). I don't think the world will end on December 21, 2012 (actually, that date has been proven to be miscalculated), and this will all be a blip. Just like Y2K was.


And not to sound too morbid, but it's time for my 2012 Celebrity Death List. (Last year was a banner year for me, actually. Eight out of my ten passed away last year. I'm lucky if one or two go.)

(It wasn't so much what I said, but what I didn't say.)

Zero, I'm sorry I just quit talking to you and froze you out of my life. But the fact of the matter is, you got back together with Kristen AGAIN (and for good that time), and never bothered to tell me. I had to find out for myself. I really liked you a lot, I'm sure you knew that. And to make matters worse, her joining cast was like rubbing salt in the wound. I'm pretty sure everyone else in the Pink Invaders was able to put two and two together on that one when they tried to figure out why I quit cast. And you were quite an asshole with me when I tried to make amends, so I think I know where you stand on that.

I don't even care so much that my heart was broken. I can get over that kind of stuff. What bothered me the most about it was I thought you were my friend. Friends don't treat each other like that.

I know we were able to be somewhat civil to each other when I was briefly with Help Me Mommy. But it's not the same.

I'd hate for us to still have this stupid feud hanging over our heads, and I don't think Fester would have liked to have died with us still holding a grudge against each other.

I've said my peace, and this is the last I'll say about it. I'm ready for a truce if you are.
hollybrooke: (it LOOKS like Jem....)
(Questions asked by [livejournal.com profile] cosmosmariner):

1) Why Jem? :P
Why not? :P I was a big fan of the dolls and cartoon when I was a kid, and that fandom got reborn when I started participating in a "Jem" RPG on Yahoo Groups. And just like all fun things from the 80s, it's fun today, but when you re-watch that show as an adult, you tend to have a different (more mature) take on it than you did as a kid.

2) How did you get into RHPS?
I always say I wouldn't have gotten into Rocky Horror if I weren't a MST3K fan. When I was in my first semester of college (many many moons ago), one of my friends asked if I had ever been to see Rocky Horror before. I told her I had heard of it, but had never seen it. She said if I liked watching MST3K, I'd probably get into a midnight showing of Rocky Horror because all you do is make fun of the movie (like on MST3K), and there was a cast "acting out" the movie as it was going. So I went with her and a couple of other friends and had lots of fun.

Then maybe about a year later, when I was still active on instant messaging on Yahoo and AOL, that when I met (the now dreaded) Zero Phoenix online. And we started talking pretty regularly online and became friends, and SOMEhow he remembered me from that one night I went to Rocky Horror, so he started really talking me into coming back to seeing another show. At that time, he wasn't in cast, but he was friends with pretty much everyone in cast, so I got to know those people and made friends with them, and after going to see the show on a semi-regular basis for a couple of years, I made the decision to join cast. I kind of wanted to be Magenta, but Ol' Man Shawn Stutler and Crazy Ryan Markle and Ed "This is my jam!" Lipinksi (aka [livejournal.com profile] supermachodude) told me that they were REALLY looking for a new Janet. And that's how it alllll began.

3) If you could live anywhere in the world, where would you live, and why?
Southern California, maybe around Los Angeles. Yes, I know cost of living is ridiculously high. Yes, I know that area is a hot ground for earthquakes and mudslides. But the true fact of the matter is that it's nice and sunny, and there's a dry heat in the summertime (unlike the humid summers we get here in Chicagoland). It's near a major metropolitan area where there's always something going on and I could never get bored. And it's a far way away from here in Indiana, and it would piss my parents off. :D

4) What is your favorite guilty pleasure movie?
Oh I have quite a few, but I'll probably have to go with She-Devil. It's so late 80s and cheese-tastic, and Meryl Streep really doesn't do enough comedy.

5) What is the one song that speaks to you in a really personal way - that it feels like the band wrote just for you?
"I Hope You Dance" by LeeAnn Womack

Like with this, in an attempt to get to know my f-list better, comment to this with "COME AT ME BRO" and I'll ask you five questions. Answer them on your LJ, and continue the meme!

Watching Rocky Horror on Blu-Ray. Shawn really should've won the part of Rocky in the 35th anniversary shadowcast. HE WAS ROBBED, DAMMIT!!!
hollybrooke: (I LOVE LUCY)
I haven't had a proper update post in a while around here. Not a whole lot has been happening on my end, but here's the gist of what's been going on.

Dad finally got a job! He was called back to Roadway, but he actually got a maintenance position with Macsteel in Chicago. This way, he has a more steady work schedule and he's not on the road all the time. But he's still driving us nuts around the house.

*tangent* My work schedule still sucks. I'm schedule to come in on Halloween at 9:45 AM. I'll be at the Art Theater for the Halloween showing of Rocky Horror the previous night, so I'll be a nice cranky mess that morning. And they have me for a midnight shift this coming Friday. UGH.

*tangent* Speaking of Halloween, I really need to get on the ball and work on Kevin's Halloween costume. (Note to self: stop by Factory Card Outlet and see if they have kazoos.)

*tangent* I posted about it over at [livejournal.com profile] customers_suck. I had a customer a couple of days ago make a crack about my acne. He told me I "should get my rosacea taken care of." I told him it's adult acne, not rosacea. He tells me, "No, that's rosacea, I should know, I've worked in pharmaceuticals for over 30 years. You should get it taken care of."

You know...why can't people just keep their fucking mouths shut about the way I look?! And I was having a good skin day, too. I've been using the Murad acne complex system for the last two weeks and so far, so good. (We'll give it two more weeks for my 30-day trial.) But when you feel the need to give me unsolicited advice about my skin condition and have the nerve to tell me, "Don't take it personally"....well, too late. You don't know me, and you don't know how unsettling it is to hear shit like that from total strangers and how self-conscious I am about my face in the first place. But yeah, he really angered and upset me to the point where I was crying about it. Why do all the asshole customers have to come to my register?

*tangent* On a good note, I've lost five pounds! *does the happy dance*
hollybrooke: (Default)
....Zero actually sent me a message on Facebook?! What the hell is this about?

Thanks for posting this, Ed!

Fuck Yeah! Support your scene!

The Wilmette is a nice, small theater. The atmosphere's more personal than what you'd expect at the Art or the Music Box. In my personal opinion, that's the funnest way to watch a show!

It'd be a first time exposure to another cast, for many of you. I can't stress strongly enough how important it is to the community as a whole to show that Rocky love.

....Oh. I see what u did thar. Nice effort, though, as long as it's for Rocky Horror.

Even though I'm not doing cast anymore, the interactions I had with him at the Art were civil, to say the least. One of the last shows I did, I kept a ladder from falling over on him backstage. He didn't thank me or anything. I expected as much. Bastard.

*tangent* Well, either my adapter for my TV/DVD player has take a crap, or I need to call DirecTV to do something about my service. The other night, I was re-adjusting wiring for the DVD player and the Blu-Ray player, and I don't know if I knocked something out of place, but now all I get is static. Like I have no DirecTV signal at all. But neither the DVD player nor the Blu-Ray player are working when I turn them on, so I suspect it's the adapter. I'll be making a trip to WalMart in about a half hour to see if I can get a new one.

Why do I need an adapter, you ask? I have an old-ish TV with a weird way of hooking up in the back that's not exactly compatible with current DVD players or my DirecTV wire. I could probably use a new digital TV, but I don't have the money for it right now. But I never bothered setting up my digital converter box because I've been making do with my DirecTV for the time being.

And why do I have a DVD player and a Blu-Ray player? The DVD player has a VCR attached to it. Why do I still bother with a VCR? Because I still have a shit-ton of VHS tapes, that's why.

*tangent* It's Kevin's birthday today. :) I still gotta make him his cookies.
hollybrooke: (Jem and Pizzazz "Bitch please!")
I really had to sit down and think hard about which episode I wanted to snark on next, and the inspiration came to me as I was at work the other day, ringing people up for various barbecue products. Since it is summertime after all, people are firing up their grills and eating and eating and eating. EAT, DAMMIT!

Yumness. So I bring you today's episode: "The World Hunger Shindig." In which horrendous 80s country-Western-type style presides over the whole episode, and apparently there's something involving charity, too. CUE THE THEME SONG!

This fierce, meat-eating bitch invites you in:

The only thing I give for free is attitude! )

Saint Jerrica thanks you for your time.

How many times did Jerrica/Jem transform in this episode: one (that we actually saw)

I finally have my cast bio up at http://www.helpmemommy.com

Go check it out. Along with my craptacular default pic that Sammi chose for me, LOL.
hollybrooke: (Barbie can't help it)
Since it's my last day off until the 4th, I dedicated today to prepping myself for Trixie this weekend with Help Me Mommy. I did a whitening strip on my teeth this morning, and I'm doing one right now (I know it's going to make my teeth super-sensitive in the morning, but I swear, it's the best dietary aid I know of!). I worked out. (Jillian Michaels, I hate you for push-ups, but I love you for it!) I shaved my legs really well. I went outside and did some yard/gardening work to try to work on my tan.

And WOW. I got a crappy sunburn on my back today in the process. I hope this fades into a decent tan by Saturday night, or else I'll look like a freaking tomato onstage. (For real. My bikini is red.) SPF 15, you have forsaken me! WTF?! The rest of my body tanned okay, but my back! YIPES!

But I did end up getting a spray tanner to try to even it out, in case. I should've just went with a spray tanner in the first place, but I never seem to get it on right and I look streaky or splotchy.

Test-dove my makeup and hair. 'Twas cute. I may actually wear it like that to work on the 3rd! But I'll tone down the makeup so I don't look too gaudy (stage-ready is never really work-appropriate).

And I will make sure good pics are taken. As a matter of fact, I kind of hope a picture of me looking that cute could work for my cast bio pic, since Tim just e-mailed us all about that.

(BTW, the look I'm going for is retro-ish American pin-up girl.)
hollybrooke: (Gaga ONTD Stan the Jackal)
Saturday night was fucking AWESOME!!!!!!! My legs are still sore! *hee hee*

GOD, I wish I had pictures. But for one thing, I don't want pictures taken of me in the floorshow corset now, because I'm flabby and soooo not in shape to be wearing that thing. For another thing, how am I going to take pix when I'm on stage? :P

Highlight of the night was the reel going out during dinner scene. We ALL started just started reciting the lines and singing "Eddie" anyway. Then after "Planet Schmanet" and running around the theater, the movie was loaded back in. Then we had to do it alllll again.

But boy. Like I said, I really need to get back into shape.

Especially since I'll be doing this again on June 11th. :D

Who knows? I may be back to doing Rocky Horror on a semi-regular basis. I had a lot of fun, and it'll be interesting in getting newbies to start coming to the show. And I truly had forgotten just how much fun I had doing this when I started doing it at the Crossroads. Being on a stage is a rush in itself.

It's just too bad Fester wasn't around to see it. *sigh*

*tangent* Who else watched the footage of Lindsay Lohan's day in court? WOW, that judge didn't want to let her off easy. I especially loved when Lindsay's lawyer tried telling the doctor that she skipped one of her alcohol education meetings because of a death in the family, and the judge asking Lindsay if she actually went to the funeral, and Lindsay had to convene with her lawyer who finally answered, "No."

Ooh, ooh, and I love how the lawyer tried talking the judge into letting Lindsay just take the remainder of her classes in one week to get them out of the way. Once again, the judge put her foot down and said, "No." Oh, and I especially loved how the lawyer tried explaining how Lindsay had a bunch of scheduled photoshoots and her upcoming movie in Texas that her SCRAM bracelet would interfere with, and could she just go to her mandatory random drug testing down in Texas? Once again, "No."

How the hell would her SCRAM ankle bracelet interfere with her photoshoots? Just shoot her from the waist up. Take her SCRAM bracelet out in Photoshop. And just how would her SCRAM bracelet interfere with filming that Linda Lovelace movie? Afraid she doesn't want it showing in leg shots? Get a fucking body double. It's not hard. You can work around this shit. And really, after this incident, wouldn't the producers of this Linda Lovelace project think that Lindsay Lohan is a LIABILITY on a movie set and--once again--UNINSURABLE?!

"You know what really grinds my gears? This Lindsay Lohan. Lindsay Lohan with all those little outfits, jumping around there on stage, half-naked with your little outfits. Ya know? You're a... You're out there jumping around and I'm just sitting here with my beer. So, what am I supposed to do? What you want? You know, are we gonna go out? Is that what you're trying to - why why are you leaping around there, throwing those things all up in my, over there in my face? What do you want, Lindsay? Tell me what you want? Well, I'll tell you what you want, you want nothing. You want nothing. All right? Because we all know that no woman anywhere wants to have sex with anyone, and to titillate us with any thoughts otherwise is - is just bogus."
hollybrooke: (Feminism?)
Here's how I liken me doing Rocky Horror this weekend.

It's like Dan and Laurie deciding to go ahead and go back to being the Nite Owl and the Silk Spectre. And Dan getting into his Nite Owl suit, but he's gained weight over the years.

Well, I've gained 30 lbs. in the last three years. I'm having a very Dan Dreiberg moment over this. But it's going to be fun, I'm sure. :D :D
hollybrooke: (Default)
I'm doing Ed a favor, that's what.

I'm playing Janet this weekend with Help Me Mommy. Now please pick your jaw up from off the floor.

That's right. I'm going back to being in a Rocky Horror shadowcast. But for one night only.

If only Fester were still alive to see this....
hollybrooke: (Default)
Okay, a proper update post (aka "the randomness of it all!"), which I haven't done in a while.

Saturday night was the Fester Memorial Show at the Art Theater, and I had to go, of course. And I don't know...I mean, I enjoyed myself, but not as much as I would've liked to have. I don't know if it's because of the lack of Fester, if it's just because I'm not used to the new-ish cast members with Help Me Mommy, or....if I'm truly over Rocky Horror. It's kind of sad. I feel like a big chapter of my life is drawing to a close.

But something eventful did happen Saturday night. It was the first time I had exchanged words with Zero since the blowout. And only because he was taking tickets that night.

I don't have Fester to defend me anymore in all of that, but frankly...I don't care. I've come to terms with it. I think I've finally reached the point of forgiveness to him and to be able to let it go. "To err is human, to forgive is divine."

LOL, see?! I'm sure Fester would've appreciated that humor in that!

*tangent* So I don't even know if I'm going with Dish Network. Mainly because when they called up to verify my information and to schedule an installation date, they mentioned something about a $125 installation fee. I flat-out told the guy, "Uh-uh! That wasn't included when I saw my final order on the website! The final bill said the $99 installation fee would be waived as part of the promo."

I really don't know if Dish will be worth the hassle of getting signed up. If it'll be like that, I'll just continue making the payments for DirecTV as it is. Even if $60 a month is kind of high for a loyal customer since 2004. I can afford it. I'll be scrimping and saving, but I can afford it.

*tangent* I've been working nine straight days. Today's my one day off this week. I can't complain too much, considering the last few days I've been pulling expired pasta sauces and pastas from the shelves when business gets slow. Yeah, it seems like I'd be bored to death doing that, but for one thing, it gets me away from the register (and keeps me from going stir-crazy). For another thing, I'm just anal-retentive enough to focus on something like that. And for another thing, at least it gets me more out in the store to help customers find stuff that they can't locate. See? I do like to help people! Just not at the register! Ha-ha!

But to the cranky lady yesterday who was annoyed that we had no more corned beef left? Uhm, you honestly thought we'd have some available when you come in on St. Patrick's Day at 6 PM? People in St. John/Cedar Lake/Lowell LOVE their corned beef, lady. You should've been here the day that sale started.

*semi-tangent* Yesterday, I ran into Mrs. Cole, one of my old kindergarten teachers, while I was at work. Man, she was a little old lady when I was in kindergarten; I can't imagine how old she is now! But she's still active, and it always tickles me that she remembered me before I remembered her. :)

*tangent* Later on today, I went out to crush some aluminum pop cans in the garage. I cut up my right middle finger pretty badly on a flimsy aluminum can, for crying out loud. (Those things are deceptively sharp!) It was bleeding pretty badly, so I had to run from the garage with my right hand held above my head, middle finger up in the air for everyone to see, into the house to fix it up. The Band-Aids I have are these dinky little ones that would barely stick without bandage tape, and I still made a bloody mess out of it. So I had to run back up to Walgreens for the bandages you can put over your fingertip.

I have no idea how long I'll have to keep it bandaged up till it's healed. I'm going to change it before I go to bed tonight, though. But like the subject line says, it's HARD to type with a bandaged-up finger!

I'm not going to keep track of each week that goes by since Fester passed, but Kevin sent me this tribute link, for anyone who's interested:

If anyone's in the NW Indiana/Chicagoland area, there will be a tribute show for him this upcoming Saturday (March 13th) at the Art Theater. For more details, visit HelpMeMommy.com
hollybrooke: (Brad and Janet)
So. :) For anyone who saw it, the "big thing" I've been alluding to for the last month was my, ahem, "triumphant return to the Rocky Horror stage," dressed up in a poofy slutty wedding dress-getup and writhing around in "ecstacy" a la Madonna at the 1984 MTV VMAs. This had been planned for a while, and I had a blast doing it. I hadn't done ANYTHING with a Rocky Horror cast since I left the Pink Invaders, and that was about three years ago. I really, REALLY wish I had pics of how it turned out, but I felt like a fool asking Mom to take a picture of me dressed up like that, and I think Kevin had a hard time taking his eyes off me to operate a camera. ;)

Like I said, this had been planned for a while. May 9th was a date that I had pulled out of the air because it gave me ample time to prepare the costume and get ready. I did NOT anticipate Zero and Kristen's wedding being the same damn night. Read more... )

As for some of the other questions that I was asked Saturday night/way early Sunday morning....especially the comment Fester made: "So....does this mean what I think it means?" .....I'm still debating it. I'd love to, but I don't have that kind of energy anymore. I wouldn't be opposed to performing maybe once a month, but I still really have to think about it.
hollybrooke: (Like a Virgin)
So Mom and Dad got back home from Alabama Tuesday night. And here's the deal...

Like I said, they had to stay longer because there was a lot of money that they had to deal with. A lot. Grandma Cozie had so much in savings, plus her CDs, plus her life insurance, plus her investments, plus her stock (which we have to look more into....we got this whole packet of stockholder information from Citibank). Dad will get a quarterly check because of the life insurance, and he's going to have to take better care of himself. I don't know who Mom and Dad had to see about all of this stuff, but I guess they submitted Dad to a physical, given that he's the only surviving family member left from Paw-Paw and Grandma Cozie. The best option they had was to re-invest all of this stuff so it'll mature more with time.

We talked a little more about this when they got home, and here's what it comes down to. As much as we hated to break it to her....well, we all know that Grandma Cozie and Mom were never on the best terms. (But that was a lot of Grandma Cozie's decision, really.) And Dad said that he didn't think Grandma Cozie would want Mom to be holding on to the purse strings. Plus....if social security were to catch wind of how much money we had in investments, they'd be forcing us to pay for a lot of her MS treatments, which we can barely afford on Dad's truck-driving salary. Which is unfair, really. I don't get why social security works that way. (Kevin's dad has been having the hardest time collecting disability/social security with his own back problems. Hell, Kevin probably should, too. He's got some back problems of his own.) It sucks that Mom's MS makes her a liability, but....well, it just does. :(

Mom and Dad are currently talking about the best way of handling this is to take everything out of Mom's name and putting it in my name (and Hunter's). The point is, if anything were to happen to Dad, Hunter and I would inherit close to a million dollars. (That we would have to split up, of course.) But we'd have to make sure we'd be taking care of Mom. Can't just leave her out.

So yeah. That pretty much makes me a "princess on paper," as I like to put it. ;)

HA. I wish!

Anyhoo, Mom and Dad brought back a bunch of stuff from just cleaning up/out the house. Grandma Cozie was A) a shopaholic, and B) a packrat/hoarder. Mom brought back this shoebox that was about six pounds heavy of jewelry. About half of this stuff is gold jewelry, I figure. (After going through it all yesterday...) And then Mom said there's more back at Grandma Cozie's house. So yeah, that's going to warrant a trip down there this summer. (By the way, I guess we're keeping the house. For now. Dad said a few couples came to come by and look through the house and made a few offers, but we're not ready to just sell it yet.) Plus, it looks like I'm inheriting alllllllllllllllll of Grandma Cozie's/Uncle Ken's CD collection. And yeah, I can tell it's mainly Uncle Ken's picks. Stuff a gay man would love:Read more... )

Going through a lot of this stuff now. Plus, trying to clean up some MORE now that we have all of this crap in the house. And I have work from 2:00 to 10:00 tonight. (Ugh.) Then work tomorrow.

And tomorrow night............TOMORROW NIGHT...........TOMORROW NIGHT!!!!!!!!! Man, it's a good thing I've got all this new-ish music for my collection because it's going to psych me up big time. *squeeeeeee!!!!!!!!* (Art Theater in Hobart at midnight. BE THERE.)
hollybrooke: (dream come true)
Believe it or not, I'm getting ready for prom. :)

The "Help Me Mommy" Rocky Horror cast is doing Prom Night tonight, so I'm getting all pretty. I managed to find my old prom dress and I'm doing the Dry-El thing on it so it's fresh and presentable. Actually, it was my mom's old prom dress, but it doesn't look horribly dated or anything.

The caveat: I gotta be out of the theater by 2 AM at the very latest, or else my car turns into a pumpkin. *ha ha* No, I have to be at work by 7 AM in the service desk, which sucks. And I kind of need the sleep if S&VT wants a presentable and pleasant Holly serving the public.

I tried shoving myself into my bridesmaid's dress from Ami and Matt's wedding (because it's light blue and pretty), but I've gained so much weight since then (at least 20 lbs) that I can't even zip it up without ruining the dress. NOT GOOD.

I'm currently watching Cinderella right now (obviously), but here are some other good prom movies to get anyone in the mood for prom:

--She's All That
--A Cinderella Story
--The Virgin Suicides
--Ten Things I Hate About You
--Not Another Teen Movie
--Never Been Kissed
--Romy and Michele's High School Reunion
--Pretty In Pink

Pictures to come!

And next week......NEXT WEEK!!!!!!!!!

The two guaranteed words that can get me out to see "Help Me Mommy!"/Rocky Horror at the Art?

80s Night.

SOOOO much fun. I got, like, totally dressed up to the max, man. Crimped my hair and everything. I wish I had a picture.

Dance party. Dance, dance, dance! I discovered that Kevin is not really big on dancing, but I have to give him an A for effort.

Karly was there! Excellent! Then the even BIGGER surprise....SHAWN was there! It was like a Pink Invaders' homecoming of sorts! (Kevin told me Wally was there last week, and I was PISSED that I missed it!)

Didn't get home until 3:30 AM-ish. Had to be at work by 10 AM today. Still really exhausted. I feel it all over in my body. My head, my back, my feet, my legs....Alicia let me go home a little early, which was good. :) (See? She's not ALWAYS a meanie.)

I am setting a date for my "thing": end of April, the 25th. Codename "Ride the Bride." Planning on losing 25 pounds by April 25th so I look good.

*tangent* Today is Christina's birthday. Next week is Justice's. I reeeeeeally need to get a hold of both of them and catch up. I hate being out of touch with friends.

*tangent* And I just felt the need to post this:

I need to see this movie again. I bought the actual graphic novel and I'm totally engrossed in it.

And because I got it from Target, it came with a sampler DVD for the Tinkerbell movie.

I'm watching it right now....and I have to be honest. I'm not thrilled. Little girls might like this, but I ain't having it. The animation is very good, for being CG-rendered, I'll give it that.

Let's just be glad that this is going to be the final direct-to-DVD Disney animated sequel.

*tangent* I had a dentist appointment last Thursday. I've got some tooth decay in one of my back molars that my dentist wants to get taken care of. I'm going to have to put it off for a couple of months because I've got other more important stuff that needs to be taken care of. (Bills suck.)

*tangent* I get to donate blood tomorrow.

*tangent* Well. I did something this Saturday night that was pretty eventful for me.

I finally went to see Rocky Horror at the Art with the new-ish cast.

I think they're doing an okay job. They need to rehearse more, and they need to work on their costumes. Fester as Divine before the show was AMAZING, though. He was the main reason I went. Lots of people surprised and happy that I FINALLY made it out to see the show. Made me happy in return.

Avoided Zero like the plague.

*tangent* I have a MAJOR plan that I can't go into too much detail about. Already got started on it. *Squeeee!*
