Yesterday, I think I definitely had one of the more crappy days of the year. But HEAR YE! HEAR YE! A Decree! I hereby announceth that instead of being all moany and poorme, poorme, life suckity sucks about it, I am going to put a happy lens on the camera…a little fun twist, tinted green and red for the holidays….without further ado, here is the account of my very, merry shitty day yesterday, complete with jazz hands:
1.) Woke up with out the use of my right elbow. The pain was unbearable. And I loved every minute of it. Everyone should have an auto immune disease that attacks your joints. Rheumatoid Arthritis for the house, bartender!
2.)Off to the dentist: OH EM GEE!!! It was so freakin’ fun! The excitement was high from the beginning as I was almost completely out of gas and there is not one mother trucking gas station 50 miles from where I live in Siberia. So I had a veritable BALL driving in the car with the heater off, on a 14 degree day, singing one of my favorite holiday ditties, “Please Santa, Get Me to the Dentist Soon Because I Will Die in the Cold If My Car Breaks Down on Fairfield Rd.” La! La! La!
When I arrived, it was all sunshine and roses, as every dental appointment usually is…I had to wait 30 minutes extra, but that’s ok because I didn’t really have any agenda for the day.
Once I finally got in the chair, the dental hygienist zapped my root nerves with the Invisilign thingy two times! I loved it so much, that she did it again. What a Christmas treat. It was so funny that I cried and I got a charlie horse in my toes from flexing for 60 straight minutes. I was totally bummed that there was an appointment after me because I REALLY wanted to have it done all over again…. *sigh * now, I have to wait 6 more months.
I really had to hurry home and get Cracker off the bus, but before that, I got to sing my “Christmas Santa Don’t Let me Die” song all the way on fumes to the closest gas station, praying that I could still make it home in time to get #3 off of the bus. BTW, the Shell station rocked. I even got some gasoline on my brand new gloves! Luckily, I will be able to smell that for weeks and weeks. Who needs perfume? And isn’t it so awesome when it costs $70 to fill up your car? I love that.
3.) One of the most rewarding parts of my day was dressing up in Alpha’s Lacrosse jersey and going to to mall to stand at a gift wrapping booth to get donations, only to get treated like shit from every third person who walks by…the whole environment was oozing with Christmas spirit. Who knew that no one would want to be nice and smile? I was so excited when I finally wrapped one present. ONE. Huh. Well, at least I bought a new outfit for the show, with the last of my cash in my account. I think it makes me look really superfat, so life is awesome.
4.) Oops, I forgot to eat today. Hee Hee!!
5.) So I am really pumped because I get on the highway from the mall to head downtown and I am hoping, well, begging really, to be in Friday traffic for about 4 hours, but I was so bummed, ya’all! I was only stuck in the car with no food or water and a dead cell phone for only 2.5 stinking hours. Lame.
6.) I get to the venue, which I will call, Cabaret Club, to find out I have only a reservation for 2 and need to cancel for the first time EVER. WHAT????? WOOT!!! WOOT!! WOOT!! Hee Haw and Merry Christmas, I must be dreaming! All this hard work really didn’t pay off, thank you Jesus. Who would have thought, that the same show last year, which was a massive failure because it sold out in less than a week, only to annoyingly add a repeat performance? Glad THAT didn’t happen again this year! Phew! For me, ya’ll, the best part was that I still have to pay everyone. That’s right, I had to PAY money to NOT do my show. Schwing!
7.) I felt like I won the lotto when I went to feed my meter after tech and found a parking ticket on my car for $75. Just wake me from the dream.
8.) I know I wasn’t going to be negative but the only really horrible thing that happened is that some girl found my discarded credit card near my car…she actually had the nerve to go home and Google my name, find out that I was, um, “performing” at Cabaret Club that night and called to say she was coming to bring it to me. What a horrible person. Karma is a bitch, lady.
OK…Truth? For reals? The best part of my night was the support of my pals, BassMan, PianoMan and DrummerSub, my lighting/sound buddy TechFro, all the staff at Cabaret Club and Credit Card Angel. And what really pulled me out of the muck was listening to some lovely music made my some really special pals. Thank you.
Let’s do this again, bitches! Tonight, take 2. Heidey Ho and Merrrrryyyyy Christmassssss!!!!
