If you're a fan of Joss Whedon, or Buffy, or musicals, or Neil Patrick Harris, or Nathan Fillion, or laughing, or smiling, or joy....you should check out this forty-five minute one act. An aspiring evil-villain, Dr. Horrible, wants to join the Evil League of Evil and win the girl of his dreams but his nemesis Captain Hammer keeps foiling his plans. I had heard the buzz about it but didn't realize how amazing it is until I watched it. It's available for purchase on Itunes or can also find it on Hulu.com.
3. American Teen
Dear "American Teen's" Hannah Bailey,
I think you're amazing and want to be friends with you. You made me laugh a lot during your movie and your grandma is the shit. I think you'd fit in really well at Wednesday Game Nights and I know that the boys would love you. So if you want to leave a comment with your email we can catch up and get together. It'd be really great if you, me could hang out. Plus, let's throw in Amanda Lorber from Mtv's "The Paper," cause she's pretty amazing, like you. Let's make it happen Hannah Bailey.
WIGGLES!!! The best part of the whole Wiggle experience though was the bald man in the red. He was the gayest thing I have ever seen on a stage (including numerous drag queens) and he wasn't even hiding it. During "Wag the Dog" he was flailing his wrists about like he didn't even have wrist bones. I would not be surprised if afterwards he and "Captain Feathersword" played pirates backstage. The kids seemed to enjoy it though...which...I GUESS is the important thing.
6. $4.50 for ice in a cup?!?!
We all know that theme parks have amazing/disgusting food. And Six Flags is absolutely no exception. Chicken Fingers, Fries, Pizza, Icees--all calorie heavy goodness. My favorite though was the treat we enjoyed while watching the Gay Wiggles. It's a treat you can't get very many places, really localized to just Six Flags New England. Ice in a cup. Yes, ladies and gentleman, shaved ice in a plastic flower pot cup with colored flavoring on top. It was amazing. And really gross. And $4.50. Just as Theme Park food should be.
5. Waterfalls on the attack
Sometimes boys turn into girls and when they are on water rides, they really don't want to get wet. This particular situation happened at Six Flags. It was a hot day, we had been running around and were gross, yet we still avoided water like the plague. The first time through the rapids we escaped relatively dry, so we decided to go again later on in the day. This time through, however, the waterfall had different plans. Not only were Vinny and Husband attacked by the waterfall, it chose to pause underneath and linger. The two people that didn't want to get wet the most were the most soaked at the end. BFF also experienced some of the attack.
I had a great idea of buying a giant plastic bag to put all of our electronics (camera, phone) into and for some reason thought that was more sensible than just renting a locker. All day I was "really pretty, not a whole lot upstairs." Ah well, what can ya do.
4. Flash Pass
I don't care how much it cost, this was the greatest thing in the entire world. For $35 extra bucks each, the four of us bypassed almost every single line in the whole park. You have a little electronic thing, you enter in what ride you want to go on, and then when it's time it buzzes and you can head straight to that line. You skip past all the people who have been waiting for 2+ hours and go straight on the ride. "YOU WERE RIGHT SPENCER" was sort of the theme of the day. The shitty part about the Flash Pass, however, is that you had to wait in this hot, gross room with a million other people who are interested in the pass. Did I mention it was a hot, gross room? Want to see what three people in a room that is hot and gross look like?
3. "Get in your box and smoke!!"
All around the park they have little outdoor boxes set up where people go in and smoke. No cover, no separate building, just a box outside. For whatever reason, I thought this was the funniest thing in the world and every time we'd walk by I'd yell "get in your box and smoke!" Everyone looked like caged animals banished from the outside world, these frightened looks on their little faces. I guess that's what they get for POLLUTING THEIR BODIES!
So as you know from #9, we played the mallet game to get the capes. And we wore these capes ALL. DAY. LONG. On rides, in the bathroom, while eating, it was fantastic. Spencer got an old school Batman capes, Husband got a Batgirl cape and I got Wonder Woman. A few heckles here and there ("nice cape!"!) some odd looks, but for the most part everyone thought we were awesome.
I'm not sure that we ever came up for a name but the few tossed around were "Homos,Inc." and "Team Pink." We're amazing. I wish I could wear that cape every day. Of course, I felt less cool when, while standing in line for Superman, this 14-year old girl comes up and said "oh my gosh, you guys are so cool I wish I had a cape. I wore a wizard hat here last year and everyone thought I was so weird." Uh...that's because you are weird. Don't you know little girl? Capes are cool, and wizard hats drool.
1.5. Steve getting yelled at by Pegg
While in line for Flash Pass, we had to watch a video that detailed how it works. It wasn't that hard of a system to figure out so obviously we weren't paying much attention. Spencer made a little joke to which Steve smiled politely. Pegg (the woman running the 'orientation') looked right in our direction, and GLARES at Steve. Like, evil eyes. She says " excuse me!" and the entire room looks right in our direction. Best part about it was that Steve couldn't even eke out a comeback, he was so taken aback. So he just sort of squeaks out this....noise....that was the funniest thing I've ever heard. It was like a "Wha-." Amazing. Husband Steve making trouble...."I can't believe I just got yelled at!!!"
1. "Cheryl!!! Sandra!!! SHARON!!!"
As you can imagine, Six Flags doesn't have the greatest clientele. A whole lot of lower back tattoos, a lot of exposed stomachs, and an excessive amount of missing teeth. During the first part of the day we're walking down main street and we see this....woman....leaning forward on her knees, rockin' the tank top, bordering on obese, teeth all a missin' SCREAMING at the top of her lungs "SHARON!!!! SHAAAARON!!!! SHAAAAAAAARRRROOOOONNNN!!" And when I say screaming I mean screaming. So naturally the four of us were a bit taken aback. The rest of the day we thought it was hilarious to randomly scream Sharon's name but the problem was, we could never remember what the name actually was. So the exchange would go something like :
Vinny and Steve: "SHARON!!"
Edit: I have been corrected, yet again. It is SANDRA, not Sharon. Oops.
Later on in the day we were going to take a picture with Sylvester the Cat and BFF and I couldn't find Steve and Vinny. The woman running the thing had a microphone and she said "what are their names?" And I said "Sharon." So the woman yells in the microphone "Sharon!" Great moment. Later still, we saw the woman again. This time she was shaking her four year old child yelling "Do you love me?! Do you love me?!?! If you loved me you'd stop crying!!!" Ah, child abuse and rollercoasters. Throw some Cotton Candy in there, and you've got yourself a perfect day.
By the fourth movie, "Batman and Robin," it was clear they wanted to have as many characters as possible. So in addition to Batman and Robin, we also had Batgirl
AHNOLD as Mr. Freeze,
And Uma Thurman as Poison Ivy
Now SEE?!?!? With all of that, why would you NOT go see a Batman movie? I think I know what four movies are going to be working their way up your Netflix queue after THIS blog post!
Heidi Blickenstaff, played by Renee Zellweger. I happen to think that Heidi is prettier though...
Musical director and "orchestra" Larry Pressgrove played by an older Ed Harris.
If I was any more famous....ya'll wouldn't know what to do with me. That's Megan Hilty I'm staring at....seriously. What is my face doing? Am I just looking into the distance? I, clearly, was the life of the party.
Here I am in another picture, from Broadwayworld.com. I have no idea who the people in the picture are, but you sure can see me in the background!
BFF and I are seeing the show tonight, him for the first time. I'm so excited!!
Saturday we went boating with his sister, brother-in-law, and adorable nephew. The weather was super warm, we stayed dry (looked like a chance of rain for a bit there) and I got some good sun. I even made a new friend: THIS GUY.
Yes, that's right. A MF-ing JELLYFISH. Now granted it didn't look as scary as this one, actually, I didn't see it at all. And thank God...because I wouldn't have been able to sleep. Before, when we were at the dock, we saw a bunch of jellyfish and BFF said they had been around in the sound this summer. We were out on the ocean, boating around, and stopped so that we could blow up the innertube and do some tubing. I'm standing on the boat, talking about how I'm scared to go in the water, and BFF pushes me in. Yes, pushes me in. Isn't that sweet? The minute I'm in the water I feel this burning feeling, like millions of pins being pushed into my arm, face, neck, chest...not a fun feeling. Within minutes you can see these spots getting red with visible lines of where the tentacles stung me. A MF-ing JELLYFISH, ya'll!!! If I was afraid to get in the water before you can bet your bottom dollar I'm not going to do it NOW! Ugh. Nature.
BBQ'd on the beach and came back to the city about midnight. EVT had been in contact throughout the night and wanted to go out dancing. So we went out dancing at 12:30 and had a really fun time. I need to remember, however, that I'm not 21 anymore and CAN'T DO THAT!! Leaving my house at 12:30?! That's crazy talk. What kind of people can do that?! My ass is too tired...
Slept in Sunday morning, hung out at the pier with BFF, went up to Jake Arnell's for a lovely ice cream party (yum!) and then managed to snag tickets to a showing of The Dark Knight.
3. Overtly straight guy next to me
Eating Snow Caps. Snow Caps!! Who eats Snow Caps?! And what straight guy eats Snow Caps?! Gross.4. Again, dude, I get it you're straight
Because really, the only thing better than "Batman," is "Catman." Oh look! I made a pun! Yay, puns!
