My friend Colleen is a creative genius. If you love Gaga like I do (and even if you don’t,) you are sure to get good chuckle out of this.
What do I love more than Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Lady Gaga? Joseph Gordon-Levitt singing Lady Gaga of course!
I have to be honest and say that my love for Joseph started at an early age. Well, love may be a strong word. Let’s just say I took note when he showed up on Roseanne as one of DJ’s annoying friends. I am also happy to report that they show Roseanne re-runs late night. I discovered this while I was on maternity leave of course. I’m not up late enough these days.
Joseph showed up randomly over the next couple of years, but I don’t think I paid much attention until he showed up in 10 Things I Hate About You. He was obviously overshadowed by a young Heath Ledger, but he was still so cute. I am finally at the age where I’m no longer embarrassed to say how much I loved that movie when it came out. I pretended otherwise at the time of course. I was much too cool for that. There was also 3rd Rock From The Sun. Did anyone else love that show? Sometimes I feel like it may have just been me. And maybe my parents. It came up in conversation once and this person looked at me like I was nuts. Sorry, but that show was hilarious. The show ended about the same time that Manic came out. He was really excellent in that movie. But after that I really stopped paying attention to him again. I really didn’t give him another thought until Inception. And then he was everywhere. And I’m okay with it. I’m kind of crushing on him like a school girl.
Been a long time folks. I guess I lost my motivation. And my mind a little bit. A recap of the last few months: I got married. It was awesome. I got meningitis and wound up in the hospital and stuck at home recovering for weeks. It was not awesome. I went to Barbados and swam with turtles, saw snails the size of my foot and saw some scary things too:
Other than that bug, it was awesome as well. The people of Barbados are truly lovely. Then I came back and threw my organization’s 10th anniversary event. It went amazingly well and we had close to 400 people in attendance. But I’m glad it’s over. Now I can breathe a bit again. Life has been slightly insane.
So, up to date. Ava and I have been busy crafting and getting ready for Halloween. Tomorrow is her Halloween “parade,” in which my friend next door and I face off against the mom clique. Yes, they exist. More on that Monday. I’ve decided to try make this blog more personal now that I’m getting back in the swing of things. I am also currently obsessed with both Pinterest and The Game of Thrones books. Lots more on those things to come I’m afraid.
What I’m loving this week:
Welcome back, me.
I have a love-hate relationship with awards shows. I have to watch them. All of them. I just can’t stop myself. I think I wear the same few outfits over and over again but still follow fashion in a feverish manner. Big Daddy won’t even stay in the room. He hates them first of all, but he also knows I’m going to hate my way through the whole thing. He’s smart, that man of mine.
I hate the babble on these shows. Ryan Seacrest might the the most annoying person on the planet. Minus Joan Rivers and her soon to be equally terrifying looking daughter. But there’s no sign of any Rivers women during the Grammys, so I’m off the hook tonight. Annoying as they may be, I sit my butt on this couch and watch the entire pre-show so I can get a better look at what everyone is wearing (or not wearing.) So, I’m writing this as I watch. Here’s Kelly Osborne. Why is she everywhere now? She loses twenty pounds and now she’s a fashion expert? Don’t get me wrong, I give her credit for turning herself around and I saw her on the cover of Shape Magazine looking super hot, but I’m still not ready to follow fashion cues from her. To be fair, I felt the same way when Nicole Richie went through her transformation. But where is Nicole now, anyway?
Dear God, Lady Gaga is bat shit crazy. In another life I probably would’ve hated her. But in this life, I effing love her. I can’t believe she just showed up in an egg “incubating.” Seriously, what? I love how she still manages to surprise me. Her new single is totally a blast from the past Madonna style, but she is kind of the Madonna of our generation, so it makes sense in a way.
Ugh. John Mayer. Johnny Depp wants his haircut back. I don’t even want to talk about you.
TIA CARRERE???? Where the eff did she come from and who is that little dude with her? He’s not worthy! He’s not worthy!
Kim Kardashian just called herself a bronze trophy. Sigh. I thought I would blog through this entire pre-show, but there’s too much hate. At least the Arcade Fire is performing tonight. But in the meantime, Mommy is going to get a pinot.
Did I mention that I love award shows?
Time to get serious here people. I have 35 days until the Lady Gaga concert. Wtf am I going to wear? It’s got to be good and I need to figure it out soon so I have time to make the costume. God knows I’m not going to a Lady Gaga concert without getting dressed up. One thing is for sure though, leotards are out. I would also prefer to not look like a giant skank when I leave the house. So that cuts a lot of her outfits out. Pretty sure that was never a problem for my dear old mom. So here are my top three looks that I am using as inspiration. Comments and suggestions as to my direction are welcome. I better learn origami, stat.
I’m fairly certain the night is going to be epic. Not to mention that its taking place on my birthday. Happy birthday mommy, time for pinot!
