Oh, the Snowmanity!

Bear with me, these are from a few weeks ago. I haven't really had a lot of opportunities to go out and snap pictures. Bette and I are not being very good bloggers, now are we? Well, she has a better excuse, what with moving in to a new HOUSE! But she's assured me that she will make a post giving us all a virtual tour once everyone is settled and unpacked. I already got one via Skype, and I thought it was pretty spiffy! A lot of wood paneling, but she told me it was worse when they first got in. But, no, you know what? I'll let her tell you when she gets to it :)

Okay, so these pictures are a little odd. I told you last post I wasn't very happy with a lot of my pictures lately, but out of, oh I don't know, 3 other outfit pictures, these are at least sort of useable.
shirt, belt, shoes: thrifted
shorts: ebay
earrings: Icing?
wtf, river dancing?

weird legs

Other fun news! I was in a play last weekend! The show is called "Melting" and it's one of fourteen 10 minute plays. Friday and Saturday night will showcase seven each, and our show kicked off the whole thing! The play is about two snowmen, Brice and Crystal, one of which gets a top hat, and he "turns into a pompous British tool". He puts on this really bad British accent and acts like the shit and I get pissed at this new him. And then I go to sleep in a huff, and he meets the sun, who quickly reveals the harsh reality that his life is finite, and that he will eventually melt. It's a funny little play about life and dying.
we're minimalist snowmen.

But seriously, it was a lot of fun being involved in something creative like this. I had been a long time since I had been on stage. The last show I did was the Vagina Monologues when I was a freshman in college. I used to always be involved in some artistic en devour, be it theater, dance, band, or art shows, but I haven't really been keeping up with it as I get older. Which is dumb, because it's not for lack of opportunity. I mean, maybe in some way. I'm not on a campus any more where there are shows and auditions every other weekend; I have to make more of a conscious effort to go out and find these things now. So this was good. I got my little theater fix :D
this is when the wind entered to steal his hat. cheeky bastard.
Oh! And I almost forgot to mention! Each night, the audience voted for their three favorite plays, which would do an encore performance the following weekend, and "Melting" was picked! So we're going on again TONIGHT! And a winner will be chosen tonight for a cash prize! I'm not sure if we'll get the coveted first place (there are a lot of very funny, very good plays we're going up against), but it's just going to be fun to give it one more go!

I was going to
