We open on Friday!

Here is the link to some pictures of the current show I'm in.

Tried to upload but I'm maxed out and need to clean out my Picasa!

On the agenda for the day:

Work, lunch with the girls, work again, home for a bit, rehearsal for Cactus Flower, exercise and then bed. A full day!

6. In the younger part.

7. My counter part looks about 12.

24. I don't plan on dying anytime soon, so I hope to have the joy of some pretty hawt "after" pictures.

25. I have a box in my garage that I bought from a storage facility place that was cleaning out old units that is labeled 'Burn upon the event of my death'.

26. It is full of WWII journals and letters that I haven't read yet.

Bathroom Talk

I have a few peculiarities when it comes to public restroom usage.

And, hey. What's a blog for, if not to discuss such things?

I'm sure most women can fall into one of two categories when using a public restroom. Are you a hover-er or a cover-er?

I seem to be both. It takes no less than three tries to get the stupid seat covers to actually not fall into the bowl, and sometimes I can't wait for three tries, and then I just end up hovering. I can't bring myself to sit down on an uncovered public toilet. Sometimes I try the toilet paper strip covering method, but sometimes you just have to go!

(Side note: I read in Prevention magazine that it is better to not make a habit of hovering because it doesn't let you bladder relax all they way, which could cause infection). Thought you should know.

Also, I never take the first couple sheets of toilet paper. Those get ripped off and thrown away. Why? Because SOMEONE ELSE HAS TOUCHED THEM! Do you do this? I always wonder if I'm the only one.

There is very limited touching of anything. Which is the norm these days, I'm sure.

I'm thankful for automatic faucets on the sinks, automatic soap dispensers, dryers that you stick your hands in and those little foot hooks that allow you to open the door with your toe.

I'm not, however, a big fan of the automatic flusher. They flush on me spontaneously. I prefer to kick the handle.

Another thing... Thanks to my Grandma Virginia (Godresthersoul) I am always on the look out of men, who are dressed as women, not because they are transvestites, but because they are coming in to prey on women in the restroom. She gave me a healthy fear of restrooms, that one. I don't think she ever used public restrooms. She just held it.

I once took my daughter into a rest stop and wish I had the video of that excursion. She had no shoes on so I packed her in on my back, checked for perverts, covered the seat, swung her around to the front, arranged her clothing, dangled her over the pot, because even covered it was disgusting, took care of clean up, dressed her while still dangling, threw her back around onto my shoulders, checked for perverts again, and left to wash up with baby wipes in the car. ALL WHILE HOLDING MY BREATH THE ENTIRE TIME! It was truly gross.

And that concludes my bathroom talk for today. Sorry for warping you.

The sun is out!

I just got the deepest desire to sew something!

And I'm not even that good of a seamstress.

I would also like to paint my fingernails, clean my bathroom, practice a new hair style, write a song, eat lunch at an outdoor cafe, people watch beneath my sun glasses, do some stretching, learn to draw, shop, and play my kazoo.

Not all at once of course.

Can you tell I'd rather be somewhere else right now?

Spring fever, much?

I would like...

to have a cozy, welcoming little coffee shop. I would sell special little treats and help people relax. It would be near the water and town. There would be out door seating for people with doggies. I might even sell a sandwhich or two.
