"But it's the pelvic thrust, that really drives you insaaaaaannnnnnnneee!"

So what could be more fun on Halloween than spending the night in bed? Okay, let's be honest kinda lame but I'm still sick so don't judge too harshly. I made the best of the situation. Joe had never seen The Rocky Horror Picture Show so we watched that after he put on his costume (he was the doctor to my sick patient). I loved it as always, he kinda liked it, I explained most and did a few audience participation things along with the movie, this amused Joe the most. Good times were had by all:

Here some fun fall and Halloween-ish photos from my recent trip back to MI, enjoy!

Good fall, harvesty, Halloween-ish times! Hope yours was just as great. Now that Halloween is over it's just a big countdown to my birthday and Christmastime with the family. SO EXCITED! Let's be honest people, December is the BEST month!!

"So I have to keep his ashes in my room..."

So I'm a sicky again. Fever of 101 today. It seems like every flight back to LA I get some sort of disease. It sucks. And after what was a risiculous week last week I am just pooped and sick and sweaty and gross. Ick.

So I think I'm really gonna get started on writing my tv show about my family and now I have a brilliant idea for a movie script. It might be the most hilarious thing ever but it certainly wasn't when I was experiencing it. I'm excited none the less.

I'm watching The Frighteners and it is still pretty funny and ridiculous. Oh Michael J.Fox and weird FBI guy. *sigh* So silly.

Back to sweating my butt off trying to break this fever-Hope all is well in your world friends.

"So many roads to choose, we start out walking and learn to run..."

I have created the best wedding gift ever. Or if it isn't I like it. So there.

At home in Michigan. Lots of leaves changing color. Lots of snuggling with my dog who thinks he's a kitten. Lots of silly moments with my family. Lots of debate/arguments between my friends while I do dishes to avoid it. Lots of good food. Lots of sitting around with out a car. Lots of going to the movies for super cheap (Invention of Lying was super cute and funny). Lots of David's Bridal trips. Lots more fun to be had.

All in all pretty sweet thus far. Get ready for more. :D

"I come from down in the valley, where mister when you're young"

My little sister just introduced me to my new favorite website:
SERIOUSLY check it out. I want everything on that site ever.

So it feels like my stomach is trapped up by my ribcage. My P.T. therapist tried to help "move" it back to it's original position in my body but it is unhappy. So I just feel very twisted up and uncomfortable. My whole abdomen hurts and feels weird on the inside. It makes me most unhappy. She gave me areas on my different lymphatic system to massage to help it feel better but it feels sucky. Really craptastic in fact. Boo. I'm over all this feeling like death stuff my body keeps pulling on me. My back, throat sickness, now my tummy/abdomen. Bunch of crap.

In happier news I am preparing to fly home. I am getting really excited to be in fall weather. To eat cider donuts and drink cider. To just hang out in MI. It's weird but I do miss it. And my brother and his gf are picking me up so you know we're going to Polonia restaurant for delicious Polish foods. And now I can show my family how to make homemade pierogi and dill pickle soup! So delicious!

I think it will be a pretty great week of anticiaption and then next week is just going to be LOVELY. Just the medicine I need. :D

Speaking of medicine, I went to a little bar out in Mar Vista called The Good Hurt where the bartenders dress up as nurses, they have little shots in test tubes called 'transfusions, and on Mondays they have pole dancing. Not like strippper nasty pole dancing, but really cool girls who do it as a sport or go to S Factor classes. It was so friggin amazing. Best time! My pal Jenn organized it and we met up with some mutuals buds and some of her pals that are awesome. Just an all around good time. I highly recommend getting your butt over there on a Monday and check it out!

I guess that does it for now. Take care all. :)

"It's the tallest building in the world, you can't miss that"

So dear friends I am returning to Michigan in one week. October 19-25 I am home for a nice visit. I will be totally free except for a bachelorette party Thursday night (but if you happen to be at the same bar that would be cool), Friday night a rehearsal dinner, and Saturday a friend's wedding. So call me and we'll arrange a get together. I would LOVE to see all of you, especially you guys I haven't seen since high school! Call me and we'll grab a coffee/tea or a bite or a drink. Just let me know. I'm so excited to see all of you! :D

"You still think a varsity letter stands for moron..."

You know what I love? Falling asleep at 11pm and sleeping in until your boss calls you at 9:45am on your day off. Good times. That is the most I've gotten to sleep in awhile though. So delightful. Mmmm.

Poor Joe though, we were supposed to drink champagne and celebrate his exams but I fell asleep before he got home, when he ran to the store, when he got home, I was just so darned tired. And stressed I guess.

Now I've just eaten a big bowl of Boo Berry, ran to work for my boss, and am back home snuggling in bed watching Babs and Bobby in "The Way We Were". Not too shabby, right?

"Unfortunately you're sick and the gun nazis found out..."

Most ridiculously bad yet awesome movie:

So it's official I am uber broke. As in NO MONEY. As in a lot of money on my credit card and no money in the bank. As in my checks barely cover rent and some utilities. Now I am just begging for cash from my folks (which is a bitter pill to swallow) and hoping to get a paying acting gig so I don't have to become a hooker or sell my eggs.

Life isn't all depressing though. Joe passed his PhD Qualifying Exams. YAY! So all he needs to do is hook up with an advisor he loves and publish a thesis and he is done! So hopefully less stress more fun from now on. And now he's thinking it'll be more like 2 years than 3.

Maybe one day I'll be:


and live in:

with this guy:

just kidding, this guy:

and get a "regular job" like this:

OR this:

Basically it'd be pretty sweet. Pretty sweet. *sigh*

"We went up to get a couple of drinks..."

So pretty great weekend.

My friend that I haven't seen since high school came to visit. We had a grand old time. Just catching up and laughing about all the old silliness. She and her hubby may be moving here to LA and just a street over from me. It would be good times, trouble. but good times.

Went to two friends' poetry reading. I was just blown away. Those two girls are so talented and brave it blew my mind. I am in utter awe of their talent.

Went to see Leslie and the Badgers Monday night-SO FREAKING AMAZING! She has this little twang in her voice like Emmy Lou Harris or LeAnn Womack but still it's like a cross of indie country bluesy music. Just awesome. LOVE LOVE LOVE them!

I'm seeing my good friends The Lexingtons perform tonight. They are amazing and everyone should come see them at 9pm Crane's Hollywood Tavern. Do it! Blair and I will be waiting for ya.

Been catching up with lots of DVRed movies. P.S. 'Panic in Needle Park' is crazy depressing. Nice work Pacino. Ha! 'Eagle Eye' was not that great. 'Stepbrothers' was awful. Just so pointless and dumb. I watched another movie this morning but I really don't remember what it was, isn't that terrible? I must have been half asleep or just thought it was really crappy but I do not remember for the life of me what it was. Ah well. EDIT: I remembered it was 'The Happening' which was not so happening. Pretty lame.
