America's Next Top Hair Model

So I got a haircut the other day and I wanted it extremely short, like my boy JT. What you think? It is so easy to manage. I don't have to worry about a thing. I have heard nothing but positive reactions to the new do, so if you have anything negative to say, please feel free to let me have it! Three (3) people have mentioned that the new haircut makes me look skinnier, so I am happy to report that I will not have to purge myself after my next few meals. Thank God! That takes mucho energy. This picture was taken this morning at 2:00am (cause I was having a hard time sleeping) so please forgive the tired wonky eye look I have all over my ugly mug. I am off to El Dorado Hills for marathon training in an hour or so. I am already too tired for this shit.

Walk Like A Man... But Don't Sing With Him

So while I was waiting patiently for "Jersey Boys" to begin, I was flipping through the pamphlet and determined what songs I was going to know. Well let me tell you, I knew quite a few. After I decided I knew the music, I thought to myself, "OMG if one of these old bitches starts singing along with the actors on stage I am going to freakin' lose it!" So the lights go down, the musical starts... and low and behold, the oldie but goodie behind me decides to sing along with the actors on such hits as "Sheri," "Big Girls Don't Cry," and "Walk Like a Man." I keep turning my head around with a major stare, but alas it didn't faze the bitch. I was getting more and more pissed as Act One continued. Okay, it is now intermission, and the old woman goes to get her obligatory glass of wine so that she can have a little more liquid courage to sing along in Act Two. WRONG. So right before the house lights went down I turned around to my karaoke friend and said, "Excuse me, but your singing is A LITTLE MUCH. I paid 80 clams for this ticket and I would like to hear the actor portraying Frankie Valli singing instead of you. Thank You!" Well let me tell you I got the laser death eyes from my new BFF! But guess what, I didn't hear a peep from the bitch the entire second act. Now I wouldn’t normally tell somebody to shut the fuck up but I was so fucking annoyed I couldn’t even enjoy myself. I believe that you are only entitled to sing along at arena concerts where everyone is drunk and high. But then I thought, "well fuck this is Sacramento... figures."

Here is what you missed minus Jay Leno.

Jacob's 1st Birthday Party

Well as all of you can tell I have been the lamest blogger on the face of the planet. I just got back from my cousin Jacob's 1st Birthday Party. God Damn we got smashed on the various sippy cups filled with Vodka. Here are the a few pictures I took from the biggest bash I have been to in the past two days. Here is the happy family, Josh, Jessica, and Jacob. So cute! I must have taken my anti-depressants today.

Out and About

Things I have seen this week:

Sunday: Sweeney Todd @ the American Conservation Theater in San Francisco. It was fantastic!

Monday: Jersey Boys @ the Community Center in Sacramento. It was okay. I don't get what all the hype was about.
