Friday random

I just got back from shopping, and boy, was today the day to be there. All the new things are rolling out, no one was there (barring the eighty thousand screaming children. I don't know how three babies managed to sound like 80,000, but they did. And I got jeans! Four pair! A schnazzy tuxedo jacket! Shoes! Make up! Sweaters and shirts and a new purse and frilly panties and new bras and I feel like a princess! Well, if I didn't have a zit on my forehead and no make up and a shlubby tee shirt where I realized half-way through my trip you can see my bra through it - classy. At least I was smart and didn't swing into Tin Star and grab a veggie quesadilla before I tried on pants. Like i did on Wednesday. Derp.

Now I don't have to buy things for ages. AMEN. Then I pick up my lovely 3/4 length wool coat from the tailor's tomorrow and I am all set for New York City. I've dl'd loads of things for my Kindle, I have warm layers, and a KLAXON WARNING CLANGING ALARM on my phone to make sure I have the tickets to all of our shows zipped in my purse, safe and sound.

All that's left is to buy a gold glitter sharpie for the Book of Mormon casts' autographs, because that is the Stage Door I am willing to stand by. Thanks for making the theater experience awful for everyone, Darren Criss fangirls - way to be unmannered and tacky. (People are leaving before the musical ends to race to the stage door so they can be "first." Unfuckingbelievable. Not to mention the screaming and crying. IT IS A FANDOM OF TOOTIES. DARREN IS NOT JERMAINE JACKSON, GIRLS.*

*omg, that was my favorite episode of Facts of Life, when Mrs. Garrett was freaked out by Tootie freaking out over Jermaine Jackson and Tootie brought a gift of homemade things to him and the bodyguards threw it away in case it was a bomb and she sobbed and sobbed. The acting is SO TERRIBLE. It's hilarious to watch it now.

flaming_muse and I have a pretty packed schedule of awesome on our plate. I'll most likely post things to my twitter or tumblr, for people who want to be spammed. :D (@StoneyboBoney and heydontjudgeme, respectively.)

Hoarders is going to be recapped by a guest on Monday (sheafrotherdon) and Sally is going to cover Top Chef, and again: THANK YOU LADIES. First vacation for me since last April. SO NEEDED. Don't break things while I'm gone!

It sounds like a fantastic day of shopping bliss! Have a wonderful time swanning about NYC.

I am now going to see if that episode is somewhere online because just the idea of Jermaine Jackson making Tootie hysterical is making me laugh and laugh.

It was, and I will! <3

Oh, I linked to it on YouTube up there - the whole thing in 5 parts. I linked to 4/5, but it's all up there. IT WAS SO DAMN FUNNY. And the acting is just awful. But in a fun way.

You deserved some good shopping karma! Yay!

Oh, god, the only thing that's seriously worrying me about our trip besides you hating me is that the fans at H2$ will ruin my enjoyment of it. Sigh. I am going to practice my zen meditation and pretend people behaving badly don't exist, but our shared issue of being embarrassed for other people who ought to be embarrassed for themselves is seriously going to come out, I think.

I'm totally going to hate you. I mean, come on. You're awful.
Wait, that's me.

I don't think they'll be there like they've been. It seems like it's dying out - I'm sure the weekends will be frantic, but the week will be nice. I WILL IT TO BE SO. Or I am going to dislocate my hand from backhanding sense into people.

Oh, PLEASE. You're amazing. I'm going to adore you. *said in the same tone of voice Kurt uses on Blaine before he sings to Jeremiah*

I had to stop reading fan accounts and even newspaper articles because of the creep factor, as you know, so I HOPE YOU ARE RIGHT. (Although my mother on the phone today told me there was an article in the paper here today about Darren in the show, and when I asked her if it was positive, she said, "Well, they're having to get used to the fans at the stage door, because they're not the same as Daniel Radcliffe's fans." So good luck to me to avoiding it! LOL)

I was talking with mr. muse about it and was telling him that if people act up, which I truly hope they won't by then, I'm going to be really tempted to ask them where their mothers are.

His response? "Are you kidding me? It's Darren. Their mothers will be standing right next to them screaming just as loud."

*facepalm*

He's probably right.

I am going to do a silly walk, just to make you feel superior. There might be duck honk noises, I haven't decided yet.

Oh, I can't see any clips, read any interviews, none of it because my shame meter is IN THE RED.

AHAHAHAHAHA, MR. MUSE!! That's freaking hilarious. And it's funny, because it's true. (But they'll be back in school! Let's hope! Oooh, or credit card bills will be due, and they will have a reality slap?)

Wasn't it a terrible homemade bust of Jermaine Jackson himself that Tootie made? I remember being incredibly creeped out by it as a ten year old. Looked like his face was melting. Here's a quote, which I found by googling the episode to make sure it wasn't simply a childhood nightmare:

Geri: What's under the cover, Tootie? Tootie: The stuff dreams are made of. (Uncovering the head) Have I captured Jermaine's soul? Geri: (Turning the unfinished head around) You definately captured something.

I've also discovered that it's listed online as possibly the worst episode of Facts of Life, ever.

OH RIGHT!!!!!!! Oh my god, that's hilarious. I think it was about the same that that "Hello" came out, with another horrible bust. Lol.

Oh, it's horrible. And that's saying something. I linked to it up there, I highly recommend watching the awful. :D

Yaaay clothes! Nothing is quite as nice as new jeans and undies. </p>

I could blow up at the whole Darren criss fandom right now honestly. I love the guy to death, and yes, I was 14 once, but I had some common fucking sense even then. It's not a concert, it's a broadway musical. Have some god damn respect -- dress the part, keep your mouth shut, sit yourself down and don't you dare leave before it ends. It's downright rude, the shit I'm hearing is inexcusable (apparently someone recorded the whole show and people are getting booted out left and right for cell phones and screaming). And they wondered why there was a tumblr war initiated by theater geeks and grown up Darren criss fans. You'd think the expensive ass tickets would be some hint that you need some maturity. So much rage. he wants to be successful, having shitty over eager fangirls only gets one so far, and then it's a hindrance. I'll never meet the guy because I'm not going to go to jail for assaulting disrespectful minors.

Have fun in new York though. I only live 5 hours away now and I haven't had a chance to go, I'm itching for it! :)

I am just DISGUSTED by the screaming and frenzied behavior at a god damned THEATER. I won't even leave a MOVIE THEATER until the credits have rolled - those people all busted their ass and deserve to have their names seen. UGH.

i'm hoping that this coming week will be less teens/people without manners and more theater geeks. HOPING.

I love really loud cell phone alarms. They are my savior when I have to get up super-early.

OoooOOoooh Cadillac, and Tom Cruise! LOL forever.

Sounds like you cleaned up. Go you!

I remember that Facts of Life episode. I remember freaking out myself watching Tootie have a nervous breakdown. Yikes.

Have a fabulous time in New York!

AGHGHIWGHiwghighiahgea. I saw 'How to Succeed' last friday night (as a fan of broadway and musical theatre first). Three girls just in my row alone trampled over me BEFORE THE SHOW WAS OVER to run outside to the stagedoor. I almost lost my mind, it's seriously appalling behavior. If they want to meet him so badly, and clearly do not give a flying frick about enjoying the show, why did they even bother to waste the money? Why not just stand outside and let others enjoy the experience. Nevermind the fact that it completely took away from the experience to have these twits in the audience pulling me back to reality. It really sucks, I wonder if Darren is satisfied with his fan base. You can definitely tell the ushers were beyond peeved... and it was only the fourth night in. GOOD JOB GUYS.

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
