"Have a Holly Jolly Christmas"

Here are pics of our first apartment with our first Christmas decorations. I LOVE CHRISTMAS!



HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!

The Red Carpet

Well, after prodding from the husband I am now officially a client of Magna Talent Agency. Not even two weeks went by before I had my first "gig". I was in a video for Start Industries for their 45th Anniversary celebration. It was "A Red Carpet Event", with limos and celebrity impersonators. They even flew in a professional Joan Rivers impersonator from L.A. I don't think you could have told the difference between her and the real Joan (unfortunately, that means there's more than one annoying crude).
Anyway, I was a fan taking pictures, therefore I can post some of the "event":

Part of faux Joan (on the right)...


...and faux Liz Taylor (she was exact!)

Fun times. Fun times.

LANDED


Saturday evening we went to see our good friend, Ben Folds, perform in Tulsa. This is my third Ben Folds concert, and it was by far the best. The reasons for this are three fold:
1. It was at Cain's Ballroom - famous, cool atomosphere
2. He played all my favorites - old and new
3. We were so close to the stage that I could see

he eyelashes, and his fiercely flying fingers
(there is an alliteration for ya)

Ben Folds, I want to say "Thanks, I had a great time."


You can also watch a clip from the show here.

Perspectives

Have you ever had one of those instances where something usually so normal and basic, even, seems odd and foriegn to you? That happend to me yesterday, and it is very disorienting. Especially when the thing that seems foriegn to you is a tree!! I have no idea why trees seemed so odd to me yesterday, but they did. I was so curious about them and would just stare at one as I passed. Maybe you have not ever contemplated the organics, or existence, of a tree, but maybe it was a word that seemed odd. Such as, "the" (in Angie's case). Sometimes the simplest things that are always around us, always evident, are not realized or appreciated until one day it hits you. Why is that? Especially with the word "the"? But, anyway, what ever it is that causes this brain blip is interesting in and of itself.
Do you ever wonder if other people see things the way you see things? I think about that alot. Sometimes I get way to deep with it that I even confuse myself. I was just thinking about that. Thought I would share. So, there you go.

So, last night LOST was glorified to a whole new deminsion of greatness. The entire season premiere was definitely not lacking in anticipation and mystery that makes this show so wonderful. But, let me just say that the first five minutes of the show was the best thing my eyes have ever witnessed on a television show in history (not a complete exageration). Within the first minute I was out of my seat and jumping, pacing and yelling with excitement and disbelief.



Now, here are my questions:
1. How in the world did the "Others" develop such an advanced living situation on this island?
2. How did the "Others" get to the island, and why are they still there when we are starting to
see them in flashbacks!!!??
*Zeke (pirate Other) was in the hospital scene with Jack.
3. Why is Henry Gale's real name Ben? I just think I like Henry better.
4. Who thinks the sexual tension between Sawyer and Kate will be even greater now that they
are locking animal cages across from each other in an unknown place with crazy people as their
"keepers"?
5. Who is Juliette, really, and why is she so great?
6. Did anyone else notice this? I actually didn't, but I saw it on another blog:
*The Nurse talking to Jack mid-way through was the same Nurse who told Locke that the
man he gave his kidney to already checked out.

Ballad of the State Fair Cinnamon Roll

Cinnamon, cinnamon
Sugar times one million
One pound of butter
To put some dough in.

You taunt me.
You tease.
Don't say I can't have you,
You complete me.

Cinnamon, cinnamon
Sugar times one million
One pound of butter
To put some dough in.

You rise above to fill me with glee
You engulf the air before I can even see.
I'd wait for you for three days
Just to taste your golden glaze.

Cinnamon, cinnamon
Sugar times one million
One pound of butter
To put some dough in.

I love you State Fair cinnamon roll.

I Know, I Know

Okay, I know that everyone is not interested in pictures of babies, but I am posting this anyway because my niece is the cutest thing alive. Look at her. She's just cute. Plus she told her mom this weekend that I was her favorite person in the world, so that definitely moved her higher up on my list.
I would also like to point out that Mia looks exactly like Andy at this age. It's kinda eerie...but cute, yet again.

Holy Cow.

So... this one time...last night...me, and Lucas, and Cam, and Liz, and Anna, and Chris, and Brazle...went to hang out together...at 10PM...in a movie theater...to see a movie... called...................................................................................................................................................................

I have not had this much fun in a movie in a long time. We decided to go see the sneak preview that about 20 other people decided to attend. There was clapping, screaming - of laughter and shock (the first two fatalities are, well, pretty incredible), amazing comments throughout by the audience, and of course, Samuel L. Jackson. A movie of this calibur does not come around very often. We were actually pretty surprised that it did have a storyline. I don't want to say anymore in case you decide to partake of the enjoyment. If you do decide to see this cinematic wonderment I suggest going with a fun group of friends. It makes the movie.

GODSPELL


Last weekend Lucas and I saw the musical Godspell at the Civic Center. I knew next to nothing about this musical besides that it was an account of the book of Matthew and it was very contraversial. However, knowing those things I went in with an open mind and it was a good thing I did. It was very obvious from the very beginning why some more "conservative" people would not appreciate this variation of the gospel. Don't misunderstand me to say that I am a liberal, but sometimes I can see the bigger picture, you know?
Unfortunately, this portrayal of Godspell did not get good reviews by the Oklahoma papers because "the actors humor was lost in their improvisation", and some other choice things to pick at. I don't disagree with everything they said, but overall, it was moving and intriguing. It was set to more modern language mixed with scripture with no alteration to truth and comparison.
I am not going to advertise for everyone to go see this because it is not for everyone, but if you have an open mind, and enjoy musicals and entertainment you might enjoy Godspell.
Cheers!

Like, I'll try that...

If I ever stop and become fully conscious of what words come out of my mouth (which I do tend to contemplate quite thoroughly before actually speaking, but not always) I say "like" waaaaay to often to make any sense. It makes me realize how dumb I sound, with no boost to the blonde rep.
I have a test for you. For some it may be harder than for others. I challenge you to refrain from saying the word "like" for one whole day. Have a friend help by following you around all day monitoring your words. Or you could hide a tape recorder in your pocket and just record yourself. (Yes, talking to yourself does count.) Or, even try replacing "like" with another word that would not make any sense in everyday speaking, such as, "superb". It might make you more aware, and others more aware of you too...
Good luck!

MayDay, MayDay!!!!!


What was I thinking?? Well, I wasn't. Last week I started watching the first season of LOST on DVD. What the heck was I doing last year on Wednesday nights?? I guess church and post-church activity is a good enough occupier of that time, but seriously. Why didn't somebody counsil me? I only have one more disc before I can start the second season to get caught up before season three shows up. I have watched at least two episodes a night for a week and have practically needed to be sedated after ever episode because I'm freaking out! What happens, what happens!!! What is the hatch? Who is Locke, really? What power does Walt have?? Holy crap! I'm going to watch another episode.

Mia

My favorite little person in the world!


Thursday, May 18, 2006


This whole Aubrie "Ross" thing is kinda weird. I just got my new license today reading "Ross, Aubrie Elizabeth". I think his should read "Lashley, Lucas Marr". Don't you think that has better speak appeal? Don't get me wrong, I'm all about the submission to your husband thing, but he doesn't have to change anything except how many puppets I will allow in the house.
I am pretty much creating a whole new identity for myself. Which, now that I think about it, could be pretty cool. Maybe I'll start going by "Brie" and transform my home into a homemaker's utopia. Or maybe I will stick with the old trusty "Aubrie", claiming my wedding coordinating by day, but indulging my spy fantasy by night as "Liz". Ah, who knows. It's an open book from here.
