april: cirque du soleil luzia (i coordinated a bunch of friends going too, yay)
june: roger waters "us & them"
& speaking of the last entry, i got to meet christopher titus. he hugged me & called me baby. can't go wrong there. ^_^
okay let's talk about that parabolic flight now. soooooo i've been watching zero-g for a couple years now, wanting to experience it, & in that time i've never seen them do a promotion or discount. then for black friday, they sent out a 20% off coupon - apparently their first ever. that's over a grand in savings; how could i NOT pull the trigger? so yeah, i'm flying down to long beach for a quick overnight & a nice long ride on the vomit comet where i will get to be weightless for a combined total of 5-7 minutes & i'm pretty sure the zero-gravity dreads pics alone will be worth the cost. X)
in less exciting but still oddly exciting news: i purchased a giant stuffed pony. i've been looking for some big pillows to provide additional comfort/seating when i host movie nights, & found an ad for this guy at a pawn shop in kent. they were asking just $25! impatient_hands picked him up for me & clearly this is the best of all possible worlds.
HE IS SO MUCH BIGGER THAN I EXPECTED.
i named him cinnamon. also he's like a $400 stuffed animal & isn't at all scarred from his time in kent OR at a pawn shop (read: not stuffed with cocaine or semen, et cetera) so idk how i got that crazy deal??!
finally, i will leave you with something that has been troubling me. so, the word woman - one human female - is pronounced wuh-min. the word women - more than one human female - is pronounced wih-min. but both start with "wo" & end differently, so the first syllable should be the same with differing second syllables??! but that is not reality?!?!? how did this happen
