Hello there. Honesty, I don't have too much to share, but I am in a blogging mood. So, as I sit here on my giant lovely couch, with holiday music playing (the only reason I like Comcast is for this channel that plays non-stop Christmas music), drinking hot chocolate and eating Cane Cane Joe Joe's (the best cookies every, pretty much), I am going to blog.
Last night I had an interesting experience. I was on a double date pretty much with an ex-boyfriend. Sure, it's been two-ish years, but still, so weird. We were all in play production together (his new girlfriend, Bryn, and I are still close and still in the class while the boys have both graduated) and it was really great to be with them. We had dinner that Denis and I made, went to Cupcake Royale (if you ever end up in Seattle, go there please) and came back to my place and watched Ratatouille because New York, I Love You only plays at weird hours in the middle of the week because it's two and a half hours long or something. I reaaaally want to see that film, though. It was fun. Double dates are a lot of fun, even though I was initially opposed to them so many months ago. We've only had good experiences.
What else, what else...Oh yeah! We finished blocking the play, sort of. It's a little rough right now but tech is on Wednesday, so we don't have much time. We'll probably have a few extra rehearsals from now to next Thursday when we open, but ahhh. It's exciting! Having a lead has been such a great experience for me. I feel so much like my character at times; it really is fantastic. I wish everyone in the cast was as into their roles as I was, but we'll see how that changes as we approach opening night.
Speaking of that weekend, Hank is coming here! I really hope that I'll be able to see him, because he's in Portland on Friday the 20th (coincidently the night of a performance and my one year anniversary with Denis), so I told him he should do something in Seattle during the afternoon of the 21st then come see my show that evening xD That would be pretty awesome.
I have no motivation right now. I just keep stopping and thinking and that is all I want to do all day. Imagine I am doing other things while I sit here and think about them. Oh, life. Speaking of things I want to do, roadtripping Route 66 (or what's left of it). Next summer. Who's with me? I seem to be the only one overly excited about this idea, which is a shame, but I have new odd travel ideas like this every month, so it could stem from that. I just need a big trip; an epic trip, if you will. Will all matters of transportation, please. Train, plane, car, boat, etc. Especially the first two, they are my favourites. I want to go to Portland...sigh. Need to stop thinking about traveling...
CHRISTMAS. It's everywhere. And it seems to bother just about everyone but me. I mean, yes, it's silly for Tully's to have Christmas trees in their windows and Starbucks to have broken out the red cups (which they received on October 13th, believe it or not!) but that just means good things to come, right? Christmas is a beautiful time of year. People are happy and there are pretty colours and lights and music and just... joy. In my mind, a bad Christmas is a total and complete oxy-moron and I want to personally fix Christmas for anyone who doesn't enjoy it. I can't wait to pull out my snowman cardigan and Christmas owl v-neck bought for me by the lovely Rita and just dance around my living room to this Christmas channel with the fire a-blazing. I've already started shopping online for people and can't wait to hit the stores and wrap presents! I LOVE wrapping presents! Christmas! Ah! Just spent half an hour shopping for people online.
So let me tie up this blog because Denis is coming by and needs his laptop for homework. I am going to listen to more music, read The History of Love and relaaax. Hope this is reaching you at a relaxing moment, too!
Forgot to mention I posted a ton of new photos on my flickr, so go check those out!
I wasn't planning on adding one today, but you guys seemed really enthusiastic about it, so I'll throw in a little something. I have so many inspirations and next to none of them reside on a runway. Sure, I love me some Marc Jacobs, BCBG, Balenciaga and DKNY, but rarely do I refer to them as influences. I am a street style girl and adore sites like Lookbook, tumblr and various blogs for inspiration. My idol is a lovely French girl named Betty, whose blog I have been reading for a couple of months now. No idea how I stumbled upon her, but boy am I glad I did. She has introduced me to new sites, new styles and given me tons of new ideas for my own wardrobe. In addition, this girl's blog is awesome with all of the black and studs, which I am obsessed with as of late.
How's that for a first? What do you want me to talk about in this section? My influences, where I shop, outfit posts, what? Keep in mind, I suck at outfit posts, but I may be able to manage. We'll see :)
Book recommendation: The Gemma Doyle trilogy by Libba Bray. I was thinking about that today and I adored that series. If you haven't read and you are a female, get on that :) even if you just want to read the first one, as far as I remember, it's a great solo read.
Dollhouse tracker: Ready for new episodes! Enver Gjokaj is an accent and acting GOD. Seriously. So impressed every episode. Oh and 2x04 was brilliant, by the way. Aaaand next on our television agenda is Battlestar Gallactica! Woo!
(Can I mention again that I love Emily? Because I feel like we have been particularly mentally connected lately and I am so, SO excited to see her in January. I am making a list of things we need to do together as I type!)
