I've just marked my calendar for Saturday, September 23 with the Colorado Symphony. I am not missing Audra, even if I have to sit in Mezzanine 8 again. Unfortunately, single tickets to symphony performances don't go on sale until June 12. :(

I tried the limited time menu item Smashburger S'Mac & Cheese burger today, because they had an online ordering code for 50% off through March 6. This has got to be the worst thing I have ever put in my body (which is really saying something), but oh, was it good, in a decadent way. I ordered it with pickles and red onion. (I meant to order it with pickles and lettuce, but I must have checked the wrong box.) I'm not sure I'd order it again because my brain will most likely try to talk my stomach out of it. But this is why junk food was created, in my opinion. It was perfect with an order of Smashfries.

We'll have a little pink boy,
Then a little pink girl,
Then another.

A little snub nose
And a little spit curl
Like her mother.

Not my taste personally, but that décor certainly makes a strong statement.  (Sorry, Tom, that sucks.  I'm hoping this is company housing and that the repair won't be your responsibility or expense to shoulder.  Either way, your upbeat attitude is admirable).

And I too hope your car is okay!

They weren't kidding about this.  A line of storms blew through featuring heavy rain and 80 mph winds.  It was a little bit scary but fortunately only lasted about 30 minutes.  It is still very windy and raining.  I hope my car is OK.  I got a new decoration in my dining room ceiling:
You cannot view this attachment.

And while I was out on the front porch at the beginning of the storm the wind blew a bunch of papers off a table.  At some point I will pick them up.  I needed to clean off that table so I guess Mother Nature was helping out.   ;D

In the ocean an island waits,
Smooth and sandy and pink.
Filled with lemons and nuts and dates.
Pretty little picture?

I've thought it was Monday all day. Maybe because we didn't get the snow we were supposed to, and it has snowed every Wednesday for the past month.

I got combination lo mein for lunch today.

Laundry... sounds like something that I should be doing... the mere mention of it has me realizing all the fun I'm missing.

I am going to see a play tonight called Hotter Than Egypt. I don't really know what it's about other than the title, and that it's a world premiere. It should be warmer than it was this past Thursday (when I saw Laughs in Spanish, another world premiere), when I was waiting for a light rail train that never came in 5° temperatures. It's supposed to be warmer tonight, but it's supposed to snow tomorrow. I don't know if the snow will start tonight or tomorrow morning.

Today is supposed to be nice, around 50°.

Turns out they weren't filming yesterday at that location; the rush was just to get the place painted quickly before the dressers started bringing in furniture and stuff.  And we didn't quite finish by noon, but were able to take a nice long crew lunch at a local bar & grill, then return for final notes and still be out the door by about 2:30.

Weather permitting (which is anyone's guess: snow, or rain, or both or neither, are expected), they are in fact supposed to film that set today.  (Yesterday, of course, was sunny and beautiful, and tomorrow's supposed to be sunny-ish and dry).  In other news, I have the day off today, but if weather does permit them to get those scenes today, then I'll probably be back there tomorrow to restore the place to its original colors (or, if not, then back at the studio doing something else).

What to do with my day?  Laundry, for sure.
