One of the first things people notice in my apartment is the ridiculous wall mounted phone that looks like something out of the hatch on Lost. It’s really big and it sticks out from the wall a lot further than necessary. I’m immune to it now but when people come over for the first time I’m reminded of just how strange the stupid thing is. It works, kind of. When someone buzzes I push a button and it opens the door but we can’t talk on the phone and the weird monitor never shows anything. I’m sure when they installed them (in 1981) the technology was quite impressive but now it just looks silly and dated. Perhaps we’ll say that about iPhones someday. For now, I use it exclusively to let the delivery guy in and take dumb selfies. Come to think of it, I guess it’s not so pointless after all.

On the heels of yesterday’s post about Disney I figured I’d share with you two of our snap shots from the trip. Whoever decided to start taking pictures of people on roller coasters was one of the true geniuses of our time. The photos are stupidly expensive but they make me laugh so. freaking. hard. You can’t put a price on joyful laughter, can you? So, I happily fork over the money. Here’s our pics from Space Mountain and Rockin’ Roller Coaster. Please note my expression as compared to the rest of my gang in the first one; cold chillin’ per usual, y’all. I sort of loose my cool in the second pic but don’t even both looking at me, my sis’ face in that one is pretty much the best thing that’s ever happened to me.
But, as it turns out, we’re quite the amateurs in this art form. Next time we have to seriously up our game with an entire photo concept, including props. Check out this collection for ideas. The gauntlet has been thrown.

I’ve been away in both the physical and the metaphorical sense. Let’s talk about the physical sense though because that’s more fun. I had a week magical times which included a visit from my sis immediately followed by a quick jaunt down to Florida for baseball, Disney and other assorted fun with my sis AND my mom. It was so wonderful to sit in the sun and watch Braves baseball again. It has certainly been a long winter and nothing welcomes the warmer weather like the return of baseball in my opinion. I even have a terrible sunburn on my arm to serve as reminder that yes, summer is indeed on the way. In between baseball games we hit the parks. And Disney was fun but just a tiny bit crowded for my taste. You see, it also happened to be spring break. A minor whoops on our part. And I must say, Disney as an adult is different. As a child, my folks took us to Disney at weird off times like February or lat September so I don’t remember crowds or lines or anything like that. In my wee Amy memory, Disney is simply the most awesome place in the world. And it’s definitely still a wonderful time but Disney is hard work, y’all. And we didn’t even have any little kids with us as an excuse. Three grown ass women walking around Disney and we were beyond exhausted. Of course, we had a ball and we hit the many of the highlights, my favorites of which are Space Mountain, Soarin’ and Tower of Terror. But as I told the two of them as we parted ways in the Orlando airport, our next trip is going to a spa.
Alrighty. It’s good to be back. what have y’all been doing?

I’m not sure when it was exactly that a chambray shirt became an absolute wardrobe essential but I welcomed the change with open arms. And I think spring is within our grasp and the chambray shirt is the perfect layering tool for warmer weather. In fact, I even have a wee addition to chambray shirts. I wear them like I would a cardigan over sundresses and yes, I’ve even been known to rock a Texas Tux every once and awhile. I call denim on denim a Texas Tux or a denim tuxedo. My man prefers Canadian Tux. What do you call this fashion statement?
Also, and this is important, my wireless network is named denim tuxedo.

I write to you from my sick bed. I’m feeling bad and my sole purpose in life right now is to get better over the next three days because I have a very distinguished sister visitor coming for the weekend. However, I’m not so sick that I can’t share this exciting news: Matt and I were on The Tonight Show! We saw a taping yesterday and we’re fully 100% visible during one of the segments. My sister and I were actually on Jimmy’s Facebook page at the exact same time trying to get tickets for her visit but they were all gone. Like the hero that she is she managed to snag two for yesterday (thanks sis!) so Matt and I happily paid 30 Rock a visit. It was only the 17th episode which made me feel like we were a part of history. Maybe we’ll tell our kids that someday. Billy Eichner was the highlight! The other guests were Tyler Perry and latin pop sensation Juanes. Sad trombone. Matt was pretty bummed that Jimmy didn’t ever take a second to address or thank the audience which he said both Jon Stewart and David Letterman do. And when I saw Conan he also came out and talked to the audience. Surprising, because of all those guys doesn’t it seem like something Jimmy would definitely do?
Oh whatever, we were on TV! Also The Roots!« go back — keep looking »
