Help Me Win!!!

My casting call video made the cut and I am in the top ten! Now, people get to vote for their favorites and I'm asking you to ask your friends to ask their friends to go over to CBS.com and vote.

I'm the one with the guitar!

Here is the link:

Thanks, Friends!!!

Practice makes... Better?

Working on a set for various open mics around town. I have something lined up for Wednesday, but don't know if this one will be ready by then. But I like it, so far.

Guess What?

I bought a ukelele today and I'm gonna learn how to play it!

The things you can find on craigslist. :)

It pretty much tops off a great day.

Last night I cut my own bangs. I kept the shears vertical, as I learned on youtube and I think I did an okay job. A little short, but still swoopy to the side. I may be booking an appointment to the salon if I botched it. I never can tell the first day or two.

My mom is coming on the train this weekend and we will see a play and shop. I believe I will be receiving new unmentionables, courtesy of mum. How nice.

I have delivered Valentines to all of my co-workers. I used the cards from here. (Scroll down the the appropriate post).

I have booked a facial party and now I am going to cancel it. I always feel so pressured by these party businesses to have an event. But I really don't want one and I never earn the hostess gift, anyway. I just can't say no when I am sitting there trying their products.

I am in a play without singing before I get to be the the Musical of My Dreams. I am in Harvey. I have a wonderful little part and I get to use my 1940's speech pattern and it's simply mah-velous. Devine. En-chaunt-ing. :)

The best part about being in theater is the costumes. I still love to play dress up.

Happy Valentines, my bloggy friends. I simply adore you.

Feeling Guilty

I just paid $4.78 for a fancy coffee.

It is delicious.
And decaf. (Because I've given up the caf).
And dairy free. (Because I've given up the cow).
And has agave sweetener instead of the chemical stuff. (Because I'm almost practically a vegan by now, if not in earnest, at least by default).

But $4.78?! And it's gone already. :(

At least it was double-punch day on my frequent customer card.

I drank my fancy coffee but couldn't get over the price, and there are Haitians out there, and homeless people, and bills, and field trips, and hungry people, and... and... and...

But I did give my business to an indepent business woman who uses fair trade and healthy products. And I put a small tip in the jar for the cute and funky barista.

Does that balance it out?

Spring needs to arrive

I'm bored of my winter clothes.

My boots seem heavy, my tights feel too close to my skin and my sweaters are peely.

I've also been lifting weights and my arms are ready to see the light of day, and they need a little sun-kissed tint to be happy.

My hair needs to be redder, my shoulders need to be tan and my toes need to peep out.

I want to eat lunch out of doors, preferably at a waterside cafe on the patio with sunglasses on.

Picnics would be fine, but I hate to pack food so it would have to be a catered affair for me too feel totally sublime about it.

I want to feel a balmy breeze at about 6:12-ish in the the evening. I want open windows to smell that greenish, lemony aroma of spring that my area boasts.

Iced coffee over hot. Smoothies over tea. Fresh veggies instead of frozen.

I'm ready to spring clean. I don't know when I'll do that, but it must be done.

Is this the equivalent of having too early of a Christmas Spirit peak? What is Spring Spirit called?

Whatever it is. I have it.
