Opening Night Thoughts

My morning thoughts, from the time I woke up until I got into the shower:

  • I need to get black out shades.
  • Is that what they’re called?
  • It’s way too early & too bright.
  • Get off me, Stella.
  • I need to put a whole banana in my shake this morning. Maybe two.
  • Are they fracking in Walnut Cove?
  • Did I read that?
  • I wonder if flames are going to shoot out of people’s faucets.
  • Flaming showers?
  • Yikes.
  • Why is my left knee so sore?
  • When did I get old?
  • How much salt did I eat yesterday?
  • I need to hydrate.
  • Why is it called Smart Water?
  • Marketing!
  • It’s Opening Night!
  • It’s Opening Night & my knees don’t work!
  • Shit.
  • I’m so glad I have a dishwasher.
  • Are we in a drought or just the West Coast?
  • My grass looks like crap.
  • Why are the dogs barking?
  • I’m hungry.
  • How many calories did I have yesterday?
  • Not enough, clearly.
  • I want caprese after the show.
  • I want steak now.
  • Why is there no red meat in my fridge?
  • Ooh! Hard boiled egg whites!
  • Still not steak.
  • Didn’t I JUST get a massage?
  • Why am I out of cream?
  • I need to check my tomatoes.
  • That requires real clothes.
  • Later.
  • Maybe I can do some yoga at lunch.
  • It’s too quiet in here.
  • What song shall I sing for mic check tonite?
  • Get it together, Pandora.
  • How much caffeine is in this cold brew concentrate?
  • Is that a spider bite?
  • I hope I get spidey sense & super powers.
  • Especially the kind that FIX MY STUPID KNEES.
  • I bet spiders don’t have this problem.
  • Do spiders have knees?
  • I should’ve ordered twice as much Deep Blue.
  • I’m gonna smell like an old lady all day.
  • How long is David at Disney?
  • I wanna go back to Disney.
  • I’ma need a hover round if I go, CUZ KNEES.
  • Do they even make hover rounds anymore?
  • Geodesic domes are cool.
  • I wonder if blue prints for Epcot are online.
  • Science!
  • Einstein was a perv.
  • Um, Bucky Fuller designed the geodesic dome, Suzanne, not Einstein.
  • Get it together.
  • Maybe I shouldn’t read Cracked articles before I go to bed at night.
  • But they’re so informative & hilarious!
  • Unicorns ARE jerks.
  • I gotta buy crayons.
  • Ooh, Jenga!
  • Hurry up, Sangria. I need a shower.
  • Wait…fracking?
  • The hell?
  • I really need to do some yoga.
  • But first, shower!
  • UGH I need to shave.
  • I wish my legs popped off like Barbie legs.
  • Shaving would be easier if I had removable legs.
  • Do cyborgs have removable limbs?
  • Cyborgs are not real things, Suzanne.
  • Get it together, woman.

And this is what it’s like to wake up inside my head on the morning of opening night. Not one thing about lines, choreography, or harmonies, but plenty about spider bites, cyborgs & flames shooting out of faucets, cuz LOGIC.



I gotta go find some more coffee. How much caffeine is in the cold brew? Not enough, apparently. Not nearly enough.




Friday Fun Times

It’s Friday. Wondermutt Stella woke me up at 5 a.m., apparently thinking yesterday’s accidental early morning is a new thing. It’s not a thing, Stella. Stop trying to make it a thing.

It's 5 a.m. My face is in your face.

It’s 5 a.m. Time for face in your face.

And so the day began. Kinda like this.

This happens more than I care to admit.


So I’m highly caffeinated AGAIN today and trying to find some ways to combat the cranky during lunch hour. Cuz it’s Friday. Friday isn’t for cranky times. Friday is for fun times.

Like vintage bowling.

These are my three favorite fun things on the interwebs right now:

Cuz Jimmy Fallon & the Roots:

Cuz Benny:

Cuz this writer & also Harry Potter (I fancy the Brits. Not ashamed.) You should follow him on the twitter machine:

Friday’s Shameless Plug for Friends:

Tonite I’m going to see something about some Lesbians Eating Quiche.

Shameless Plug for Friends


I love this little theatre group. They perform shows I’ve never heard of, which is great cuz I can only watch Hairspray and Oklahoma! and South Pacific performed so many times. Yeah, I said it.

Find something to make you laugh today. Cuz it’s Friday, yo.
