My tummy hurts. What did I eat yesterday? Can't be what I ate today...since that was only oatmeal. stomach is so delicate in my old age. The ulcer doesn't help. I am glad I am seeing the doctor tomorrow, cause it's been painful lately. I think he needs to do some tests to see how bad things are. It might be a lot worse than we think.

Amy & I are going to see Cheri perform in her showcase tonight. Erin might go, too, she's still trying to decide. I think she really wants to go, but she is supposed to get some medical work done for her yearly physical. She probably won't end up going.

I placed an order online a month ago for some camera accessories, & still haven't received anything. I just checked my order status online, & there was none. I called the customer service department, & they couldn't find anything either, so they said they would call me back. Hmmmm.....that doesn't make me too happy. Update: they just called, the order never got sent, perhaps because one part of the three pack was out of stock. So they are sending it now. **sigh** Thanks for keeping me updated. Whatever. The way some companies run shock me.

I got my USA Olympics beret today. It's really cute. I'd like to wear it, but it's Spring now & warming up...I may not get to wear it until next winter.

I am gonna wear one of my new wigs tonight. It's not one I ever would have picked out from the shelf, but Ellen, the owner, thought it would be cute on me, so I tried it on. It was really cute, but it's certainly different. It almost looks like hair that someone of a different ethnicity would wear...but it's cute. Dark brown. The wig ladies were all excited because they said I looked good in every color wig I tried on. Blonde, platinum blonde, black, red, reddish brown, brown, blue, green, pink (yes, I tried on blue, green, & pink wigs). It's true....not bragging, just being honest. I have one of those faces & complexions where I can get away with everything/anything. I can wear bubblegum pink lipstick, bright red lipstick, brown toned lipsticks, any color eyeshadow....I am just "lucky" like that (as if any of that really matters). I definitely look best in blonde & red hair. Red is actually really good on me...if I wasn't a blonde, I'd be a redhead. Brown is okay. Black is really cool cause it accents my blue eyes a lot, but I am so pale, I look just a bit vampire-ish. At least, that's what my mom used to say when I wore a black wig. It's certainly a nice contrast to my real hair, though. The ladies thought my real hair was too pretty to cover, but I just like a temporary change sometimes...cause I'd never cut my hair. Shoot, I just cut over 3 inches off, & I am still having a hard time dealing with THAT, & it was well over a week ago. :-) I love wigs.

I am surprised to see how nervous some people are about the LJ Bash. I am not remotely nervous. But that could also be because I don't know anyone that well yet. I guess there's not as much on the line for me. Of course, I DO have that thought in the back of my head that maybe no one will like me. That those who have me on their friends list now will drop me when they get back from LA this weekend..."she wasn't as cool as I thought." I yam what I yam. But I don't "party" & I don't drink alcohol or smoke weed or anything like that, so it sounds like I might not fit in so well. Me is all I have to offer. Either people like me or they don't. When things start getting too crazy (ie: people start getting drunk, etc.), I will just make my goodbyes. It's all good. I just hope that everyone has as much fun as they are hoping to. I hope it's a great time for everyone, & that no one gets TOO sick or TOO crazy. I want everyone to have a great time...and if I make some new friends, ALL THE BETTER! New friends are great! :-) You can never have enough. And I can't wait to meet some of the people I have "met" online recently! Wooo-hooo!

Ticked, ticked, ticked.....

Went to go see Cheri perform in Hollywood tonight. I was going to take the Metro Rail into Hollywood, & called Cheri to see if she'd give me a ride back to the NoHo station after her show. She said she would, & asked me to bring her those bathing suits. Amy met me at the Hollywood/Vine Metro Rail station. She looked straight at me & didn't recognize me, because of my wig. She said I looked completely different. It's such a cute wig! Maybe I'll post a pic someday....I'm sure you'll all be waiting eagerly for that.

We walked the 4-5 blocks to the theatre. We finally got there & sat down right in the front row (since I'm short, I hate people sitting in front of me). I went back & found Jaylen, who didn't recognize me either. I had to completely remind him who I was. The show finally started, & Cheri's group was up pretty quick, like the 3rd act or so.
We kept waiting for Cheri to come out, but only saw one girl from her group...and never Cheri. I called her phone during intermission & told her we were sitting in the front row, smack dab in the middle.

The show ended around 10:30ish....& Cheri was no where to be found. I checked my phone, & there was a message from her, saying her mom needed to get home, & she couldn't find me anywhere, so she was going to have to leave without me. Huh? She didn't even come look for us. I told her exactly where we were. Granted, *I* looked different, but Amy looked the same she always looks.

The last Metro Rail train back to NoHo is around 11PM. Here it was, 10:30, & we were at least a 15 minute walk from the station. I had also only bought a one way ticket, since Cheri said she'd take me home. On top of that, I had lugged around this bag of bathing suits all through Hollywood.

Amy rode with me to the Hollywood/Highland station, but then I had to go two more stations on my own. OK, I am a big scaredy cat. I am a fairly attractive, young girl dressed nicely, riding the Metro Rail alone at 11PM....through Hollywood. Scary.

But I did it, & I live to talk about it.

If Amy hadn't been with me, & I had had to WALK through Hollywood by myself...I think I would have cried. Actually, I would have begged a complete stranger, even a Scientologist, at the showcase to give me a ride home, or at least, to the station. I wouldn't have walked alone. I'm not stupid.

Ooooooo....was I ticked with Cheri. How dare she! I bring bathing suits for her, we went to see HER, & she leaves---without me, after promising me a ride---after her group performs. Ew! That makes me so mad! I left her a message telling her I missed the last train, & I said, "I hope you sleep well tonight, while I sleep on the streets of Hollywood. If I am murdered, I love you."


Love Cheri, but she can be such a flake.

My back hurts!

Crea was great again tonight. The MC (a really funny comedian) said that she was originally from Alabama, & asked if anyone in the audience was from Alabama. I screamed really loudly, sure that others would, too....and it turned out I was alone in my of course, I completely stood out. Everyone turned & looked at me & laughed. The story of my life. I talked to Crea later, & she is from my town, Birmingham. I told her to call me when she has a CD come out, cause I wanted to support a "hometown girl." :-)

The comedian....he was Black. The audience was predominantly Black. And he told this joke (he's from NY): Man I got out here & all the street signs are in Mexican. What's with this one street, La See a Nigga? I think they be needin' to change that street name." Of course, it's actually La Cienaga, but it's kinda pronounced "la see a nigga"...kinda. But everyone thought it was really funny.

Toby's barking...he wants to come inside. I have a doctor's appointment about my ulcer at 11am, so I am headed to bed. Peace out.
