New Years! [Dec. 29th, 2008|11:43 am]
I have a request for the New Years part Wednesday night. Could people bring finger food or some small snack food. Not a lot, just some munchies. There will be about 20 people I think and I will be making egg rolls, truffles, and some fried mushrooms I know. Things like chips, salsa, dip, veggies, whatever. If you want a lot of special stuff for the drinking then bring that. We have the champagne so don't worry about that.
Think of it as the December potluck.

New Year [Dec. 16th, 2008|10:45 pm]
New Year's party at party o'clock 8:30-9ish
Instead of a potluck this month feel free to bring finger food or tasty treats to the party. It's just hard to get a good time to have a potluck this month.
Katie will finally be at this party again, YAY!!!

Just venting a bit [Dec. 14th, 2008|01:08 am]
[mood |frustratedTwenty paths diverge in a wood]

There is nothing I hate more than not knowing my own mind. I still can't decide where I would like life to take me after graduation in May. I don't know if the graduate schools I am applying to will take me to a career I want or if the jobs I can apply for are ones that I would enjoy. I have never felt this restless. I always feel restless at the end of the semester, more so when that semester means the end of a chapter in my life. The end of this semester with the end of my four year degree staring at me is making me feel very lost. Even smaller decisions than where will I be headed for the rest of my life seem insurmountable some days.

I'm not sad or depressed or anything...just so damn frustrated I could SCREAM some days. Something is going to snap and change soon, I can tell. It's like a string on a guitar that is tuned too tightly. It won't be big, but it will remove the pressure. I am very aware that it is all self imposed pressure, an imagined weight of the future on my shoulders. Everyone has to make decisions like this, I just wish life was easy.

We are the knights who say... [Dec. 10th, 2008|10:13 am]
I have a charity presale offer for Spamalot staring Richard Chamberlain (of "Towering Inferno" fame) which is coming to town in March. $50 or $55 per ticket and for every ticket bought they donate $15 to the AADD. Show is March 17-22 and this is a rare opportunity to sit in the center section of the orchestra without paying close to or over $100. Who wants to go? I don't know how long the presale offer is good for so think fast.

Potluck [Dec. 7th, 2008|11:05 am]
I cannot think of a good day to have the potluck this month due to finals and the holidays and all so here is my idea. We have the potluck January 2nd or 3rd, after the hangovers are done. This gives the added bonus of Katie being in town for the party this time! I know that everyone misses having her at parties. So start thinking about a good theme cause my brain is tapped out for themes right now.
Also, do you want to do a White Elephant exchange at the potluck? You can get rid of that horrific pair of pjs that your grandmother gave you again. Just an idea cause I haven't done one in a loooong time.
Please, comment.

Rent Final Tour [Dec. 5th, 2008|03:40 pm]
So the final tour of Rent is next year...until they do a revival of course. Anthony Rapp and Adam Pascal from the original cast and movie will be touring with the show for the last time. The closest it comes is Charlotte, NC so Lee and I are thinking about taking a road trip to see the show. Anyone else want to come? I'm thinking maybe a Saturday matinee at 2 so we can acually drive there and back in a day...or if people want we can get a hotel room in charlotte and see a night show. It could be a fun miniroad trip for you musically minded people.

Wow...just wow [Nov. 19th, 2008|10:56 pm]
Jeremy's grandmother died last night at 10:30. Apparently he is doing ok right now.
I also just found out tonight that a friend of mine from high school is having a fundraiser to modify their house for a wheelchair because her little brother was paralyzed in June. They are raising money to modify the house so he can come home from the hospital. It's on December 12th and I think that I will be going down now. I'm shocked...the accident was in June. I feel bad for not talking to her for so long that I had no idea. I don't know Cam very well, but she was a close friend of mine.

Just a reminder that Friday night is the next Potluck of Doom. This time the theme is Breakfast and everyone is welcome to wear their PJ's and bunny slippers to enjoy the food in.
So far Cathy is bringin quiche, Danielle muffins and mimosas, Joey biscuits and a potato cake, and Jeb pancakes. What will you add?

Quantum of Awesome [Nov. 12th, 2008|07:14 pm]
Does anyone want to go see Quantum of Solace tomorrow night at midnight or Friday at noon/noon thirty? I want to go see it before I head to Canton this weekend or else I might have to go alone again.
Call or reply.
