Road trip plans

I just bought the third “Glee” CD (that show is an iTunes money-making machine). Now that I can actually understand the lyrics to Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” from the slowed down arrangement Rachel and her mom sang, I realize it’s a wildly inappropriate mother-daughter duet. Almost as bad as this song being sang by Michael and Maebe on “Arrested Development”.

I bought some snacks for the trip to Chicago tomorrow; last night I went to Wild Goose Creative for a See You Thursday improv show to meet two of the three women I’ll be rooming with, since we didn’t know each other. They both seem very pleasant and good natured and I look forward to spending LOTS and lots of time with them this weekend. The four of us will be sharing a room for two nights so we best be getting cozy. On the plus side, since we’re fitting four to a room, we’re each paying less than $50 a person for both nights.

I found out last night that there’s an improv workshop involved Saturday afternoon. This I had not bargained for; I was under the impression that we were just going to WATCH improv, not perform it. I thoroughly enjoyed my intro class but by the end of it, I knew I was done. I like the improv culture, love the people, the creativity and all that, but I am not an improv performer. And that’s okay! I don’t have to do it all. So, even though I felt bad, I e-mailed the organizer of the trip and asked him not to reserve a spot for me in the workshop. He was cool about it. On the plus side, I might get a couple hours to myself in Chicago on Saturday.

I’m leaving the house at 7:30 a.m. to meet the ladies at one of their houses before 8. Then we’re getting breakfast and we’re hitting the road with the others, caravan style, shortly after 9. We’re going to at least one performance tomorrow night, and two on Saturday night. We’re heading back Sunday. It will be so nice to have Monday off after all that.

I’ll be blogging via iPhone so check back all weekend. 🙂

Sigh… I was totally gonna stay up late and clean since I’m leaving town Friday, but instead I’m going to watch “Arrested Development” until I pass out on my couch. My brother started watching that show recently and it reminded me how much I love it, so I started re-watching it on Netflix Instant. Those episodes go by so fast, you don’t even realize you’ve watched five in a row before it’s too late.

Over the weekend I baked some cookies (from a box, shh) for the neighbors to thank them for being awesomely quiet as of late. Positive reinforcement! My brother, the new parent, approves of my methods. Meanwhile, I’m going to move. I gotta be outta there by July so I need to make some plans fast. Plans and back up plans are currently in the works.

Also, today, I got my camera-to-laptop problem fixed. The cable I was using WAS the problem, so I got a new one today that works like a charm. I am back in business. I started editing a couple projects tonight instead of going to the record studio as planned– I wasn’t feeling so hot at work this afternoon.

Anyone catch “Glee” tonight? How intensely scary was Kurt’s dad, huh? I was afraid he was gonna punch me in the face through my aunt’s television.
