Not-So-Deep Thoughts on a Friday

May 30, 2008

>> I’m currently obsessed with the song “I Stand” by Idina Menzel: I stand for the power to change/I live for the perfect day/I love till it hurts like crazy/I hope for a hero to save me/I stand for the strange and lonely/I believe there’s a better place/I don’t know if the sky is heaven/But I pray anyway.

>> Why is it that I love So You Think You Can Dance but hate American Idol? Is it because I’m a better singer than I am a dancer? I like to point out flaws in singers –because I can– but I’m always in awe of the dancers. As the least flexible member of the dance team, I can appreciate the lines I could never achieve.

>> I know the news is talking about the collapsed crane and everything, but I can’t keep myself from giggling when the press guy says “erection.”

>> If you haven’t sent me your address for the 20SB Postcard Exchange, you have about 12 more hours to do so! And if you have, spread the word! Remember: thereneeborhood (at) gmail (dot) com

>> I had two distinctly different tragic dreams last night. My dog made an appearance in both. She’s been dead since January 2005. What the hell? In the first dream, I was clutching her while I cried because my dad had just been stabbed. (I used to always hold her when I cried.) In the second dream, I was in the basement keeping her safe because there was a tornado upstairs. Seriously, why did I dream that shit last night? Awful. I prefer the engagement dreams, thank you.

>> I sent out thirteen resumes this week. Two of my former supervisors at congressional internships are pulling strings for me for another government job. I wish I could give more details, but the feds monitor that shit. I don’t want to get fired before I even start… kinda defeats the purpose.

>> The rerun of Scrubs that I watched the other day was the one with Colin Farrell. It reminded me of the time the Beau Named Joe and I were in Titanic the musical. He played the character Jim Farrell. I asked him, “Feral like a cat?” and he said, “No, Farrell like a Colin.” Still one of my favorite Joe-isms.

>> Speaking of TBNJoe, his triumphant return to the States is Sunday! He’s coming back to South Bend for a day or so to rest up and then we’re both headed to his home in Minneapolis. Kinda bittersweet, though, because after I leave him in Minneapolis, I don’t know the next time I’ll see him. 😦 Stupid growing up.

>> Why can’t I get my hair to look like this every day? (And why is Photo Booth such a fun program?)

>> I have had the same ache in my shoulder for over a week now. Is it my bed? My pillows? This chair? The lack of yoga? (duh)

>> I’m taking my beautiful MacBook Pro in to get the Airport card fixed today. I bought it refurbished in March and something’s wrong with the card. Total bummer. But warranties are wonderful and I’m so looking forward to wireless again! Look out, Panera, you and I are just a little fix away from rekindling our friendship. (Friendship = abusing free wireless privileges by buying one cup of coffee and surfing teh interwebs for 3 hours) I hope the people I take my computer in to don’t talk to me like I’m stupid. Maybe I should introduce myself as “Renee, the techie nerd.”

>> What’s on your mind, bloggy friends? Spill it.

    I finally got Gabriel Iglesias’s DVD “Hot and Fluffy” in the mail yesterday. I’ve been dying to get it ever since I got to interpret his show in April. I’d link you to the entry I posted about that, but my website is currently down due to some pretty major server issues.

    Not much is on my mind today. I do love that episode of Scrubs!

    I’m counting down the hours until I get to see SATC! (5, by the way)

    It’s funny. I hate SYTYCD, but I love American Idol, but I think it’s for the same reason. I’m a much better dancer than I am a singer. Plus, I get to buy CD’s from the people who win American Idol, so maybe I care a little more…

    My thoughts?
    I love your hair.
    Thank you for the postcard. You better believe you’ll be on the receiving end soon πŸ˜‰
    It’s muggy outside.
    I hate both of the shows you mentioned, unfortunately.
    And yay for your guy coming back home this weekend!

    The worst is when you don’t know “the next time” you’ll see your special someone. It gets to me if I don’t know that, and so I always try to make sure to have a trip planned or something beforehand. Or I’d pull my hair out πŸ™‚
