Little Miss and Mr Men

About a month ago I had a split-second flashback to my childhood. Besides my all-time favorite "Go Dog. Go!", my favorite series was the "Little Miss and Mr Men" book series by Roger Hargreaves. I couldn't remember what they were called at first, but I remembered the characters vividly. It took about 5 minutes of google-exploring, but I found them. Not only did I find the books, but I found a website for the "Mr Men Show" on the Cartoon Network. I obviously don't frequent the CN very often. I had no idea it existed, but I'm so glad it does because their website it so cute. Each character has its own game, downloadable coloring page and wallpaper. My boss walked past as I was playing one of these dumb little flash games. I was caught. I couldn't help it, I was reverting back to my 2-year-old self! Oh, look, I found another one.

I think Little Miss Chatterbox is my favorite today. She keeps repeating, "I love chocolate cake and competitive shopping."

"soooo meaty... "

My friends and I have been frequenting tapings of The Soup lately. I really don't have much more to say, other than the fact that Joel McHale is not only hilarious, but so nice and so dang hot. That's all.

Work life has officially interrupted my home life. I'm dreaming in orange and yellow. Someone please help me.

If you don't know what I'm talking about, you probably don't live in Los Angeles or New York City. Otherwise you'd be bombarded by posters and billboards promoting this new show. Want your very own calendar? Want a poster? Let me know... I think I have an "in" with the person who made them.

Thoughts of even watching this show are beginning to put me over the edge. I'm doing good just attempting to stay afloat in the yellow-orange-lands of Australia, Canada, UK, Italy, France, Germany, Serbia... you name it... I'm swimming in a dangerous game of RISK.

The city of Santa Monica let go of all their many beach and pier rules for 12 beloved hours with an incredible GLOW festival - the first time in history that the Santa Monica pier has been open all night long. How could I not be a part of this? When we finally found parking and walked down to the pier, it was about 2:00am. Overall the art installations were pretty cool, but the amount of people at this festival was astonishing!

"At any given time, up to 75,000 people could be found on the Santa Monica Pier and the surrounding beach and park, all entranced by the exciting range of artworks and performances. When a new wave of Glow seekers arrived after 2:00 am, the Santa Monica Pier finally reached capacity... Public safety officials then limited access to the Pier for a period of time, the music stage was closed, and the popular work by Usman Haque north of the Pier was briefly shut down." —from the glow website

With as many people that were there, I was pleasantly shocked to run in to at least 10 people I knew there--some I haven't seen in 3+ years, some from Orange County, from work... it was insane and so much fun. I think everyone and their dog was at this thing. (Yes, I did use that cliché, get over it.) :)

Kami and Rustin and I entertained ourselves with the 'cosmic' array of crazy people. I shouldn't have been so surprised with just how many weirdo's there were... we were at the Santa Monica Pier for heaven's sake. Nonetheless, it was still amusing to see a glowing mermaid, a mid-70s hairy-sweaty-shirtless-overweight man-on-crack (I think) dancing to his iPod while smoking in the middle of a very very crowded sea of people walking down the pier. This guy even had a crowd forming around him--including an officer who couldn't do much but stare--just like the rest of us. Hey, almost everything is humorous after midnight... and it just got better past 3:00am!

I hope you enjoy the pics... we were inspired to create our own "glowing selves". Kami and I even got a picture with my new boyfriend. He's hot, eh? Thanks Santa Monica!!! (Next time--make sure more restaurants and shops stay open near 3rd street--boy did they miss out on some major dough!)
