Believe it or not the below picture is the best of like ten pictures I took of myself yesterday. Exhaustion is making my face look like an unmade bed.
Anyway, I can’t talk because we’re on our way to LAX!
I was startled to realize before that I hadn’t posted yesterday’s picture yet and then dismayed to realize I hadn’t even taken a single picture of myself yesterday. I was going to take an early morning one today to make up for yesterday’s mishap but, being already at work and stuff, I realized it might be a little redundant. (Whereas taking a pic first thing in the morning is both disgusting AND kind of relevant because “Hey! I went to sleep in those clothes!”)
Anyway, upon reflecting on this alarming habit I realized I HAD, in fact, taken a photo of myself yesterday. It was actually the set of photos I took first thing yesterday morning to make up for my slackerosity the day before.
Oh poor Jlo, I beg to differ:
Click on Jlo’s photo to read the article. It’s called, and this makes me laugh in and of itself:
“Which World Are We Talking About, Exactly?”
No offense to JLo, natch.
This picture is a cheat because I took just now instead of yesterday. I am EXHAUSTED! When you look at this picture, have that song “Isn’t She Lovely?” running through your head. This way you’ll hate me for that rather than for having to look at this picture. You’re welcome!
Okay time to start the day! *dragging feet*
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:
People from the cast of Modern Family
People from the cast of Parks and Recreation
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!
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:
Wish us luck!
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.
Yesterday we had a pretty full morning. I don’t know why but I woke up at 8:30am and couldn’t go back to sleep. We got up relatively early and had brekky (facon, avocado and cheese on French bread with coffee). We listened to records and Kristyn made some CDs for a coworker, then had to go to work. I spent the day working on a tippy top secret project and watching Roseanne.
Also, look at these pictures that Kristyn took of Monster!!! Adorable!
