CSI’m Tired of Lens Flares

I'm so ugly

I'm so ugly

We’re in our hotel room watching CSI Miami.  It’s unbelievable.  Not only is David Caruso the ugliest working actor man alive, I think that the director of photography must be the biggest Bruins Fan EVER.  He only knows two colors:  Blue and Gold.  To make this show tolerable we’ve decided to play a drinking game.  Here are the rules:

-Drink when David Apeface Caruso delivers a line over his shoulder

-Drink when David Redheaded Raisin Caruso touches his sunglasses

-Drink when it’s sunset


IT’S ALWAYS SUNSET ON THIS SHOW!!!  Miami must be a photographers wet dream – it is perpetually Golden Hour…..These actors call sheets must read:  Call Time 5:30PM, Wrap 7:00PM.  Needless to say, we are drunk.

We moved the wedding venue to California from New York to avoid potential downpours.  Now I’m waaaaaaaaay up in Northern California (we’re talking almost Oregon, people) and my beautiful Meadow that normally looks like this


now looks like this:


Still really pretty as long as nobody looks down.  Ever.

Apparently the grass goes dormant in September up here, so our options are:

a)Call Pearl Jam and and see if Chris can take the month of June off

b)Check out these other venues:



and the Botanical Gardens


The first two pictures are from the same venue.  It’s actually really, really cool and I’m hoping it’s THE ONE.  The third picture is from the Botanical Gardens up here and is totally gorgeous, but would require more work and dealing with Park Rangers.  Ick.  More Work + Park Rangers = Grody.


However, More Work + Park Rangers X SWINGS = a real possibility

THE GOOD NEWS:  No matter which of the three venues we pick, the cute hotel in which we are currently staying is where most of you, dear readers, would be staying…and it’s adorable.

So help me, Smoking Baby, I will make this happen!

I’ve finally found an appropriate use for the profanity-laden sticky notes my sister gave me!



And it begins…..

Y’know what sucks more than packing? Nothing. Nothing is worse than packing. Packing makes me not want to move at all. As in “not move” off the couch. I definitely want to be in the new apartment, I just want all our stuff to magically be there before us. I’m trying to tell Chris that we don’t really need to pack at all. The new place is right up the street, so the way I see it we can just have, like, two boxes. We can carelessly fill ’em up, drive ’em over and dump ’em out over and over again. I think it’s the best idea I’ve ever had.

Chris is taking the bigger closet in the new place which means I’ve got to get rid of some clothes. I’ve been burrowing through drawers and ripping things off hangers trying to stay emotionally detached while I destroy my lovely little closet. It looks like a family of badgers has made a nest in there. Maybe I should just leave it all and get all new clothes to go with the new apartment! Now I think that’s the best idea I’ve ever had!
