I went to Chicago this weekend with my friend Angie for the Starkid Summer Season 2014 and had an awesome time.

Side Bar - For those who may be thinking WTF is a Starkid )

Now onto the weekend recap:

Fun times. )

All in all, it was an excellent trip. I hope they do something like this again next year.

I couldn't help but notice today that part of "All-American Prophet" from the Book of Mormon sounds an awful lot like "Trouble" from the Music Man. Not that I'm complaining. Merely...observing.

Anyway, I'm behind on the Starkid meme so here's day 29 for all of you still paying attention to this one.

Favorite Picture Of Joey )

In other news, I got a call today from Fred Clark (the man I've been campaigning for) and he thanked me for all my hard work as a volunteer. It made me feel all special and stuff.

Finally, the biggest news of today is this: in two days, I will be meeting [livejournal.com profile] sionnach_ayame and [livejournal.com profile] secondmezzanine. I'm so flippin' excited!!!!

28. What are your thoughts on Red Vines? )

Since snagging the limited-time only (as in yesterday only) $1.99 digital download of the Tony Award Winning Musical, The Book of Mormon, I've become a tad bit obsessed with it. The songs are ridiculously catchy and I'm really glad that they convey the plot of the show (much easier to understand what's going on.)

I'm also glad it's given me a new phrase with which to address Wisconsin dictator Governor Scott Walker. Hasa Diga Scott Walker. It means: "Fuck you, Scott Walker." I got the inspiration from the song: "Hasa Diga Eebowai."

Anyway, I'm feeling a bit *meh* today so I'm going to go watch more of the BBC's "Walk on the Wild Side" and read more of "Warm Bodies." Tonight is a night where I must zone out.

Peace.

The Boy Meets World watching continues...albeit slowly. I really wish Netflix would put the show on instant queue or at least send you the whole season instead of just seven episodes at a time. Once I watch the next disc, I intend to do more of a recap, but just know, that I'm loving it so much. :)

Day 27. Do you apply any Starkid references in your life? )

And now for a meme I snagged from [livejournal.com profile] niki1988


• Comment with "come at me, bro".
• I'll respond by asking you five questions so I can get to know you better.
• Update your journal with the answers to the questions.
• Include this explanation in the post and offer to ask other people questions.

22. Brian Holden. Care to comment? )

A stream of recent posts on Tumblr inspired me to place Boy Meets World in my Netflix queue. The first disc of Season 1 came yesterday and I watched the first four episodes. Oh happy '90's nostaligia! I'm going to finish the disc tonight and get it in the mail asap to ensure quick turn-around on disc 2.

In other news, I was contacted by a place I'd applied to back in early May. Apparently, they'd done first and second interviews for the position already, had been left with some concerns, and decided to explore their "maybe" pile. I was one of three applicants that had made that pile.

To their credit, they're willing to offer full-time and benefits, but the commute was just too much (~2 hours one way), especially since I've got a lock with the Pauquette Center now. Also, their ideal candidate was someone who's close to licensure or someone who is licensed and right now, I'm neither.

That said, the lady really seemed to be taken with me so she's keeping my resume on file. Apparently, they do work closer to where I live so there might be a possibility for a different position somewhere down the road.

I can safely say I'm not too bummed though...because I report to the Pauquette Center in less than two days!!

Playing Catch-Up Again - Day 20 and 21 )

My friend Sabrina's baby shower was awesome yesterday!

I went over early because I wanted to assist Dionne with set-up. We were super proud of ouselves for getting the canopies up by ourselves (because, you know, ladies can do anything!) I also loved that Dionne decided on a Pirate theme for the shower since Sabrina loves pirates and the initials for her baby boy will be ARR.

I was pleasantly surprised to be chosen as the winner for the first game. We had to draw a skull and crossbones with a blindfold over our eyes. I've always considered myself a no-talent drawer but apparently, my skills improve when I can't see what I'm doing. *g* I also happened to be the only one who chose to use the whole page for my drawing. Everyone else did really small ones. My prize was a bottle of Mango Margarita Hand-Soap from Bath and Body Works. It smells awesome. :D

I think the funniest part of the shower was when Dionne brought out a sword and a skull cane and said: "All right, ladies, who's feeling athletic?" She wanted to do a Dizzy Bat contest (where you put your head down on the item, spin around really fast, and then run across the yard.) We all opted out though as it was too hot and we'd just eaten cake.

When I got home, Nick and I picked up a Gourmet Vegetarian pizza (zucchini, mushrooms, sun-dried tomatos, artichoke hearts, spinach, cheese, and a creamy garlic sauce) from Papa Murphy's. It was a great way to end the day, plus I have leftovers for lunch. WOO!

On a final note, only three more days until I start at the Pauquette Center and only two more weeks until I get to go to IOWA!

Days 18 and 19 )

Moving on to RL, I got my sister to start watching Parks and Recreation!!! She actually started it before I slept over at her house last night, but we watched the last two episodes of season 1 and the first episode of season 2 together and it was fun. She also introduced me to this slightly addicting game called Word Bubbles .

This morning, I got up early and headed out with my gal pals to the Susan G. Komen walk. Details, Shmee-tails )

Once I got back home though, I wound up having a lazy afternoon. I caught up on So You Think You Can Dance (I think I'm in love with Arielle Coker). I also finished Season 1 of 30 Rock.

Tomorrow, I have a baby shower to go too. WOO!

Catch you on the flip side, chickadees.

Would you introduce me to your folks? Would you tell your friends, "No moose jokes!" - If I Were A Moose by Fred Small.

17. if there was to be a third part to AVPM, what do you think should happen? )

The Rest Of The Challenge )

I picked up my paperwork for the Pauquette Center so I get to fill that out this weekend. :) I'm also doing the Susan G. Komen Walk For The Cure on Saturday with my friends Sabrina and Nicole (along with some of Sabrina's fellow Miche purse salespeople.) I'm excited to be doing that and I hope it doesn't get too hot. We are doing it in the morning though (8:30-10:45) so here's hoping it won't be bad.

In other news, a bat snuck into our apartment today. I was helping Nick in the kitchen when I saw something black fly across my line of sight. The little critter had taken up residence in our second living room (where my computer is) and was hanging out above our front door. I screamed like a girl. Nick was pretty much a nervous Nelly on account of never having dealt with a bat before. He didn't want to spook it and make things worse. I headed out of the house to call my dad, but thankfully, our neighbor Lee was outside having a smoke. Turns out Lee just happened to be a bat-catching expert. In no time, Lee had the bat wrapped in a towel and released him back into the wild. My neighbor totally wins the awesome award for the day.

This girl!

So with that in mind, permit me to make my choice for today's Starkid challenge with a gif that expresses what I'm feeling right now.

16. Joe Walker as voldemort or umbridge?


The Rest of the Challenge )

I had my organizational meeting with the Pauquette Center tonight and I learned a lot. For starters, I learned that the woman I interviewed with back in December is no longer an employee there. From the sound of it, there were some complications surrounding her departure. Be that as it may, she left behind all her notes for the day treatment program.

At the moment, they aren't sure when we'll be starting the program itself (earliest would be July, latest would be September.)

But never fear, kittens. Dr. Hayes is pushing to have me in the office by next week Thursday. His goal is to have me work on updating the assessment procedures and also wants me to make phone calls to various schools and other agencies that would be able to send us referrals.

Right now, it'll only be 8 hours - one day a week, but I think I can convince the law firm to work with me on that because I'd like to keep working for them if I can (at least until they've caught up with their workload and don't need me anymore.)

In any case, I'm signing hiring paperwork tomorrow after work.

WOO!

Before I answer the meme question for the day, I need to take a moment to rap about the other things in my life (though now that I think about it...I probably can't rap. I bet it would be painful. Bonus points to whoever catches the reference.)
