Brrrrrrrr......Rrrrrrrrr....Constant Buzzing Sound....Grrr....

For almost an hour now I've been hearing helicopters overhead. I can't make sense of it. At first I thought it was a small plane flying around like the ones promoting Geico's low insurance rates. Those have been flying over the north side for a week now (sorry Geico, I'm still not switching my car insurance so lay off the fuel wasting). That theory is blown, however, because it's 10:34pm. Then I started to freak out that some major accident had occurred. Dear god, the theater I work at is over that way--is it on fire?! Some performer finally lit a deadly blaze after being cut from the stage! Or maybe a terrorist attack??!! WHAT HAPPENED??!!!

So I logged on to Chicago Tribune's website...and all the helicopters are hovering over Wrigley Field now that the Cubs are going post season. All the hoopla is over the Cubs. Cubs. Schmubs.

Wow, and here I was preparing for a natural disaster or something. Well, now this area WILL be like a natural disaster with more Cubs mania. As a local I may be forced to evacuate. Like to here--

That's where I spent the last two days (well, probably not even more than 24 hours really) and it's in the middle of nowhere in Nevada. It sure was pretty! No Schmubs...I mean Cubs. And I liked it. I took two walks. No casinos for me. Too depressing. I highly recommend rural Nevada if you're looking for no Cubs.

Wake Up....NOW. And NOW. And NOW... you know your neighbors are doing?

Well I do! My neighbors decided today was the most perfect of perfect days to re tar their roof. Yep. Mr. Jarcy and I don't go to bed until 2am on the weekends (well for him it's more like 3am). We work, we perform in shows, we go see shows, we read, did I mention we work? Oh yeah I did but anyone can agree I deserve a break because I am severely screwed up from lack of sleeeeep.

I've just decided my next creative venture will be to write a manual on being a good neighbor. The first chapter will be dedicated entirely to why one should NOT work on a roof at 8 am.

Did I mention their house is two story and our apartment is on the third floor? Oh yes, that is true. I woke up and peered out the window only to see 5 shirtless men blasting and hammering not 5 feet away from my bedroom. I might go all Bionic Woman on them and jump out of one of our windows to that roof.

I'm being a baby I know but my concept of weekend is clearly different from other folks. I spent last night downing beer and viewing a late evening show called "Thunderpussy." Nothing prepared me for home projects at the crack of Saturday dawn.

A Confession Friday Again

I am watching America's Funniest Videos...and loving every minute of it.

Oh hello! I can't believe it's been weeks since I last posted. I'm starting to wonder if every time I post it will now start with that. ("Oh! I've been gone, hello!")

I have been up to various things. Recently I began walking more. And more. And more...a lot. I was convinced I had lost 5 lbs. in less than a week just from walking. Then I slacked off for 3 days and feel as if I've gained 7 lbs. just as payback for my lazy nature. AHHH!

I also stopped eating meat and most dairy. I'm not going to kid myself that I will never eat meat again because I can barely stick with anything unless legally required to. Hey, why can't I be legally held responsible for not eating meat?? I wish. If I tried to go cold turkey I'm certain I would pick up a leg of turkey 5 minutes after that decision. Any time I try to declare something is final I end up blowing it. Just human nature I guess.

Well, I'm off to eat my dinner of oatmeal and fruit...
