Day One Hundred and Two

I can’t even get into how awesome the GLAAD Media Awards were right now because I don’t have the time but we had so much fun. We laughed, we cried, we accidentally rubbed elbows with Mondo from Project Runway. We didn’t have cable during that season so therefore had no idea who he was. Nice guy though!

Anyway, all I will say for right now is:

Dolly Parton
Amy Poehler
Rashida Jones
Craig Robinson
Sean Hayes
People from the cast of Modern Family
People from the cast of Parks and Recreation
Kristin Chenowith
Joel McHale
Marlee Matlin
Meatloaf!

The list goes on, I mean there were just so many people there that I am such a big fan of. Also, we escorted the girls from “Pretty Little Liars”. They were really nice.

Kristin Chenowith received an award and her speech made us cry. Kristyn found it on YouTube and cried all over again. I’ll find it and post it later. She’s so damn amazing.

Anyway, I said I wouldn’t go into it and here I am anyway: Going into it. I’ll stop, I have work to do. Later.

I am STILL dizzy from the champagne I guzzled. I have seriously learned that:

Coleen + Alcohol = Broken Toy

I guess I’m lucky that I don’t have a hangover cuz I really don’t. I don’t feel sick or headachey, just fuzzy and sort of euphoric. Definitely NOT the way I want to feel at work. Drink some more Joe Coleen. You can do this!

SO EXCITED!!!

We are volunteering at the GLAAD Media Awards tonight and are so goddamn excited! (GLAAD = Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation). Click on that link to see why. So many awesome people are gonna be there. I am so glad we’re in LA for this one because I would be pissed if we weren’t, haha.

God I love volunteering for this event guys. Not only is it a great cause, the people are great AND you get to peep some awesome gay-positive celebs. Such a fun night. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a LOT of work but so worth it.

OMG last year when we got home, the cats were outside! They had knocked out the front window (bc the screen wasn’t secure) and jumped out! We found Elvira right away. A) She hadn’t left the courtyard, B) We saw her white fur in the dark.

Monster, on the other hand, left the courtyard and was hiding in the bushes in the front. We were terrified. Crying, calling out to him. We thought we were gonna find him in the street. But then Kristyn heard a rustle and there he was: TERRIFIED. He was hiding from us. Well moreso just frozen with fear. She grabbed him and we went in and cried and hugged them for a while and then went to bed.

WELL, just a little while ago, I was holding Monster and decided to step out the front door into the courtyard to grab something. Suddenly that memory flooded back and I was like, “Maybe today isn’t the best day to get Monster interested in the great outdoors.”

Anyway, we’re getting ready now. SO EXCITING!!!

Here’s Kristyn’s post on the GLAAD Media Awards from last year:

And here’s mine:

BOOM

Wish us luck!

Day One Hundred and One

I was lazy as all hell today. Kind of intentionally so. Tomorrow we have a big day so I wanted to be sure to get as much rest as possible. About an hour before Kristyn got home I got up and cleaned the house. We had dinner and then went grocery shopping. We’re watching a Lisa Lampanelli special and are about to go to sleep now, so buh bye.

Day Ninety-four

Kristyn doesn’t want to play this game anymore so she’s digging in her heels but you’ve still got me!

Anyway, yesterday I ran some errands and Kristyn worked 11-9. I went to the bank, to the goodwill (to look around, I bought a few skirts to alter) and grocery shopping. Look at that vending machine of whoopie cushions and stuff!

Oh AND our friend Vanessa sent us that Dr. Mario plaque! She made it!!! She makes awesome things out of these little beads and she knows we like Dr. Mario so BOOM! She also sent us cookies, a Christmas card and a candy cane (haha) and a letter. Thank you Vanessa!!!! We love it!!!

Then I went to get Krissy and we came home, had some coffee and ice cream then some blueberry beers. We watched Saturday Night Live on Netflix Instant and fell asleep on the couch. Good day!

P.S. Oh also we listened to Traditional Scottish Fiddle Music.

Day Ninety-three

Man am I getting bad at posting these on time. This is my latest one yet! Regardless, we had a really great day again!

Our friend Samantha somehow was able to get a bunch of tickets for ten beans a pop for the Dodgers vs. Giants game last night. I’ve only been teice. Once when I was a wee lass, I went with my parents to see the Mets play at Shea stadium. That was a day game but I remember it being really cold. The other time was only a few years ago. That was the time our friend Amanda got tickets from some guy at the hotel she worked at. It was the same deal, he’d bought a row for cheap. We went to see the Yankees at the old Yankee stadium. Some drunk guy started hitting on Amanda’s 17 year old coworker (who also got tickets) and natch she wasn’t interested. So we sat between them and they started screaming at us calling us cockblockers and fat bitches. Little did he know we ARE cockblockers and fat bitches so we got them kicked out of the game and the Yankees won! Hurrah!

Anyway, we got to the game LATE. It was already the END of the 7th inning! Didn’t stop us from ordering beer.

But it was a thrilling experience! And we’re Dodgers fans now! And d’ya know what? We live five minutes from Dodger Stadium. I mean I knew it was close but it is CLOSE. (For our families: we live way closer to Dodger Stadium than to Giants Stadium. It’s THAT close.)

And we had so much fun that we’re gonna go back! We can actually take the bus from our house and get our drink on…*ahem* I mean save on parking.

The Dodgers won! All the dudes were kissing and hugging. I think I like night games better because it’s all lit up pretty. And it was “Friday Fireworks sponsored by Pizza Hut” night so they let everyone down on the field and then had fireworks! (Sponsored by Pizza Hut.) So much fun!

And my job allows you to borrow DVDs from their lending library so I borrowed Tales From The Crypt, Season 3 and Mad About You, Season 2. We watched those and drank blueberry beer until we fell asleep.

I gotta go pick up Krissy from work in a hot minute. Later!

Day Ninety-two

Yesterday was a great day! And tiring. The thing about our new schedule is that as the week wears on, by design, we get less and less sleep until we are zombies. It’s just the way the schedule works out. So, being Friday, we are at about the height of insane exhaustion. We need to scale it back a bit and take some time to relax because we’re burning the candle at both ends. BUT that kinda relaxation will have to wait because we’re busy dammit!

Also tonight we’re doing something really fun that is out of the norm for us and we can’t wait!!! So excited!

Okay, here we are giving the camera: NEARLY UNCONSCIOUS!

Day Eighty-eight

I’m getting real bad about posting same day lately. Bad girl. Day #88 should have been magical by my Mom’s standards. Alas it was not. I did talk to my Mom though so there’s that!

Anyway not much to say about yesterday. I was at the computer writing an article for LA Music Blog and going through pictures from MEN for much of the day. I also ate more bread than is sane for a person to do, watched a lot of Roseanne, listened to the MEN record and did some work on another project.

Kristyn had kind of an annoying day at work and then came home to me totally unconscious. After that she stayed up for an hour with her teeth chattering and listening to the dulcet sounds of a helicopter hovering directly above us with a man in it shouting “COME OUT WITH YOUR HANDS UP!” and the police scanner app on her iPhone. Never a dull moment in Silver Lake yo.

Okay here I am looking innocent in pigtail braids. My tshirt has a picture of Peaches smoking on it. “Rock the Shocker!”

20110328-085347.jpg

Here’s Kristyn looking like a domesticated Gollum early this morning after helping me get ready. Believe it or not she approved this picture. Haha. I gotta take more early morning photos of her.

Day Eighty-seven

We went to see MEN last night! The show was at the Echo and it was SUCH a great show. Really had a great time. We bought a record of their album. I really feel like their album ushered me out of a serious bummer of a phase. It could have been anything but it was this. And we’ve gotten into collecting records, some just for fun and others for specific reasons. Like we bought “Exile in Guyville” as a memory holder because Kristyn got to interview Liz Phair and it went so well. We already had it on CD but something about the vinyl record feels more personal. Like you are actually collecting “something”. A tangible something. And I knew we had to buy this record “Talk About Body” because:

A) Kristyn’s first interview was with them.

B) It inspired us a lot.

C) It ushered me out of my doldrums.

D) The lifting of said doldrums seems to have brought a lot of positivity with it because my life is filled with a lot more possibility than before.

E) We are just big fans of JD’s in general.

F) The music is good.

G) To buy the record at the show is kind of a memory in itself. It was a really fun night and we don’t get a lot of those lately.

So anyway, yeah. Good night, good times. Here I am slightly damp because it rained.

20110327-024644.jpg

Here is Krissy, dutifully letting me take her picture. (She hates this project but is an exceedingly tolerant person haha.)

20110327-024756.jpg

Here is Monster welcoming Krissy home.

20110327-025222.jpg

Here is MEN wearing a weird connected helmet when they came on stage. It was awesome.

20110327-024958.jpg

And here’s just a picture taken in the middle of the show.

20110327-025012.jpg

We’ll post more pictures later. We were there so Kristyn could cover it for LA Music Blog but we would have been there either way. I had a better spot than Kristyn so I took a lotta pictures. I’ll link the article once she writes it.

Oh AND the guitarist, Michael, was selling the merchandise and when we bought the album I told him that they were great and that I had a bummer six months until their record came out. He said thanks and seemed genuine. Either way its awesome when you get a chance to thank people who’s art inspired you first hand. It was a great day! (Oh and the muscle relaxers and Ibuprofin knocked out most of what ailed me with my back and we even hung around and danced afterward bc there was a DJ.)

Today I have a lotta digital things to do and then rest up for tamarra to start the whole week again! : D
