I spend a ridiculous amount of time …

… looking for things that I’ve put somewhere “so I won’t forget where I put it.”

Congratulations Madam Speaker!

Aaand… I’m crying.

So far today, I’ve:

  • Screwed up a special dessert I have successfully made at least a dozen times before
  • Missed the last step, fell to the ground, spilled Coke all over the rug, and twisted my knee
  • Celebrated a great darts throw I made to win a game only to realize I had made a math error and went on to lose said game

Go home, 2019… You’re drunk.

Cold car cures

I’m fortunate to be able to park in a garage at home, but I learned some great tips for those times when I have to park outside.

Winter is… well, you know

It is known: The best thing about 2019 is the return of Game of Thrones!

Can’t. Wait.

And for the record, when it comes to Brienne, I am 100% #TeamJaime.

Boynton, Interrupted

I was in Pause mode at this time last year so I missed my tradition of sharing Sandra Boynton’s 2017 New Year’s Eve tweet. So here it is as well as … well, last year’s. 🙂

Happy New Year and here’s to a healthy, happy, and laugh-filled 2019 for us all!

Can someone please explain to me…

… how it’s possible to have lived for 56 years and still manage to put clothes on backwards and/or inside out?

Right here is where you pay… in sweat

I went to the Dreamscape dance performance at the Lincoln Theatre last night put on by CityDance, a D.C. organization that offers several programs to bring dance “to transform lives and communities through dance.” Debbie Allen hosted the event and they opened with the performers dancing to the chorus of Fame.

The performance was great, with all sorts of dance forms represented including ballet, modern, tap, ballroom, and African. Of course we weren’t allowed to take photos during the performance, but I was surprised when an usher told me I couldn’t take a pic of the stage before the show began. Personally, I think that’s ridiculous and puts the ushers in a bad situation since everyone’s doing it. Including me. 🙂

I did not take photos during the performance, but many other people did. Honestly, venues need to come up with a better solution than telling people not to do it. I recommend they create an online repository of images that people should be free to share on social media, which would hopefully reduce people taking their own shots while encouraging publicity.

To Infinity Mirrors… and beyond!

I’m not a connoisseur of modern art, but a friend of mine had extra tickets to the Yayoi Kusama: Infinity Mirror Rooms exhibit at the Hirschorn Museum in D.C. today and since I like trying new things, I jumped at the chancce. I Googled about the show before I went and I was blown away at how popular it was. I had no. idea. Apparently it was almost impossible to get tickets, so I’m very grateful I had the chance to see it myself.

Scoring tickets to Hirshhorn’s mirrored Yayoi Kusama exhibit (WTOP, 02/28/17)

The show was interesting and some of the mirror rooms were amazing. It’s just too bad that because of the demand and the small size of the rooms, you only got 20 seconds in each one to really take them in.

Here are some of my shots from the exhibit, inside and outside the infinity mirror rooms.

After all the lineups, we were pretty peckish afterwards, so we stopped at Oyamel where I enjoyed some chips and salsa, Caesar salad, and a light margarita. All in all, a great way to celebrate both a Saturday afternoon and Cinco de Mayo!
