Is it just me or have any of you all looked at your calendar lately and said to yourself “Where the hell has April gone?” My god, I looked at my calendar last night wondering about the next time I would have a moment of down time all to myself and had to actually flip it to the month of May. Sigh…Weren’t we just talking about New Year’s Resolutions?
This isn’t a bad thing though, I swear. In fact even though this week is going to fly by, it is full of Super! Fun! Things! Including a Wednesday night show in Davis to see Passion Pit (yay!) and then on Friday, we are Seattle Bound! I may even end up doing laundry somewhere in there too otherwise Seattle better get ready to see my in my wrinkled best. I figure this will be acceptable though because if people look at me funny I will just say I’m making a pilgramage to the capital of grunge! Although this time around I will wear much less plaid than I did in the 90s. And of course I’ll be sure to make sure my lipstick doesn’t make me look like I’ve been sucking on a tailpipe. You’ve got to draw the line somewhere you know.
And among all of the touristy things I plan to do I assure you that I most certainly do plan to fight fellow tourists at Kerry Park for pictures of that view. Hell, I may even wear a fanny pack and a camera around my neck while I’m at it — what of it?
(Excuse me while I take a minute to stop laughing my ass off because I am having a gay old time visualizing myself in an awful plaid shirt, wrinkly jeans, and Dr. Martens, while I also strap on a fanny pack and sling a camera around my neck. This trip is going to be awesome! Maybe I will just do some laundry. There’s a thought. )
Anyway — digression, apparently is my middle name! So we will be there for a long weekend and I have made a spreadsheet of all the places I want to go because I am a giant nerd like that and have come to realize that instead of 4 days, we need about 40. People, there are 47 restaurants on my list. FORTY SEVEN. Not sure how to reconcile that just yet, but I can tell you this much — I told Garrett he needs to pack layers and his appetite! The weather looks to be pretty nice and of course we will get to visit some fabulous people, so I basically can’t wait for that! GOD I CAN’T WAIT FOR THAT.
The only downer is that I anticipate taking about 970 billion pictures, and I sort of hate my haircut right now. I wish I could say my hairdresser is to blame, but actually she is the most adorable thing on the planet and gave the exact cut that I asked for — I just um…well…don’t love it. So yeah there’s that. But I keep trying to remind myself that this haircut is not that bad. After all it is nothing like the time I went to see my old hairdresser in Los Angeles for a cut and I walked out with a peroxide yarmulke. A YARMULKE OF PEROXIDE….let that sink in for a minute. My lesson after that incident was if a hairdresser ever says that you should go a little bit “avante garde” turn and run the other direction.
So yeah, this hair is not that bad. It’s short and has bangs. Big whoop, there is no peroxide and no yarmulke, so I will live. But it probably means that I will take plenty of pictures of the adorable looking patio that we will have outside of the condo that we are staying in instead of me! Whatever. We’ll see what happens. I mean if all else fails and I run out things to photograph, I will just start taking pictures of meals we eat because you know there will be no shortage of opportunities there.
