Miley, Glitter and Queens, Oh My! April 29, 2008

If there is one thing I’m sick to death of hearing about, it’s Miley Cyrus. Look, I like her just fine. She has that one poppy song that get’s me going and that I may or may not have downloaded from ITunes. But this whole controversy over her Vanity Fair picture is just ridiculous.

What’s the big deal?!?! She’s totally covered up! It was for Vanity Fair! Just be lucky she didn’t show her boobies for them! I guess I don’t see what all the hoopla is about. Don’t people know how 15-year old girls in this world dress? Usually not conservatively!! Miley has been the second coming of Britney Spears for quite some time so why is everyone surprised. I’d be more concerned about the fact that she looks like the Joker.

I’d like to give a special Birthday shout-out to Queenton who turns…26? 25? I don’t know, he’s 20-something. For you Queenton, I give you…

Grace, the Glitter Fairy. Because really, you would appreciate Grace more than anyone I know. I love you Quenty!

Last night BFF and I went to see A. Rapp hot the Mr. Broadway Beauty Pageant at New World Stages. There were five guys competing from five different Broadway shows and hot, waxed bodies abounded. The real reason I wanted to go was to schmooze with Hunter and Susan from [title of show] and we did just that! Had a great time, the show was really funny and it totes made me want to compete in a pageant. Just so I can make a face like this.

That may or may not be a Drag Queen. I’m not really sure.

Oh my! I’ve been quite the bad blogger the past few days. But really I’m just taking after everyone else’s blogs that I read–I’m talking to you Wife and Tanner and Chrislynn….Let’s see. Quick recap. Wednesday night was the Kate Nash concert with Page Six and it was super fun. We were front row and even though she gave me a dirty look when I asked her to bear my child, a great time was had by all.

Thursday night was about six hours of new TV. Survivor, Ugly Betty, Grey’s, Lost, 30 Rock, and the Office were all new! It was a glorious night filled with laziness. Friday night BFF and I worked late and then went with some friends to see “Baby Mama.”

Amy Poheler and Tina Fey are absolutely brilliant comediennes and the movie was pretty frakkin hilarious. Saturday I had a long workout and hung around the house until the evening when I went with Page Six and BFF to Bamboo 52. The drinks flowed, a drunken make-out happened, and around 2:45 am I was pouring myself into bed. I was in the bathroom taking my contacts out when I heard my phone ring–and didn’t think anything of it. I didn’t recognize the number so I called them back and said “who dis?” “Hi, Brian, I’m so sorry. It’s Anthony. I went to take the little box out and the door closed behind me with my keys and my wallet and my phone. I’m calling you from a neighbors’ house. Can you take a cab down here and let me in to my apartment?”

F’real?!?! So I got my pants on and went downtown to Ant’s house to let him in. He was super apologetic and paid for my cab. In the end it wasn’t that big of a deal but I was a stumbling mess. I had a lovely drunk phone call with Crazy at 3am and got back home about 3:15am. FUN TIMES. Sunday BFF and I decided to try and win the lottery for front tickets to “In the Heights.” Well….we won! So we saw ITH for the third time–this show is so phenomenal.

This makes this the third show I’ve seen on Broadway three or more times. Can you guess what the other two are?

I’m hoping that A.Rapp comes through with some tickets to the Mr. Broadway beauty pageant tonight. Hunter and Susan from [title of show] are hosting and I’m going to have to stalk them a little harder if I want to eventually become friends with them!! It’s a slow, slow day at work today as all of our guys are traveling. It’s rainy, gray, and just depressing outside. What a perfect day for blogging and tv watching!!

Life of the Party Indeed! April 23, 2008

So back in January there was an event that happened in my apartment building that I failed to blog about. Or maybe I did, and I can’t find it. That’s not the point. The point is–I was on the news last night!! Well…sorta. So here’s the story: In January my downstairs neighbor died in his apartment and his roommate and friend wheeled his body on an office chair around the corner and tried to cash his Social Security Check by pretending he was sleeping. Seriously. I wish I was making this up. It’s straight up “Weekend at Bernie’s” ya’ll.

Side note: I love how it says “Bernie would be the perfect host.” Really? Cause he looks kinda old to me. Anyway, last night I was watching TV in my living room and I saw this bright light shining on the ceiling of my bedroom. I went to the window to see what it was and saw a guy across the street filming the exterior of my apartment building. I was super confused so I kept going from window to window to get a better look. When I left my house later to feed A.Rapp’s cats I saw the Channel 5 truck outside of my building. So I set my DVR to record the news to see what was going on.

As I watched the news later, I saw the piece start on the Bernie guys. All of a sudden, they show the exterior of my building and in a second story window all of a sudden you see me looking out the window! I was dying–so funny! I look like a peeping tom! You can’t see my face because they were filming across the street but I think it’s hilarious. The guys were cleared of the charge, saying they didn’t think their friend was dead but COME ON. They don’t look like the classiest of guys, now do they? Anyway, here is the link to the video:

Look in the blueish windows on the bottom left corner of the screen and you’ll see someone pop into frame–it’s me!

Andrew Lloyd Webber night on Idol last night was ROUGH. Although I have to say, not as rough as seeing ALW’s face.

YIKES!!

Syesha, Brooke, and David A. did a great job I thought. Brooke was a hot mess, as was Jason. I didn’t like David Cook at first but now I’m realizing that it was a very beautiful performance vocally and we don’t need something innovative and amazing from him every week. As far as my vote to go home, I keep going back and forth between Brooke and Jason but when it comes down to it, I think Brooke will go home. Bottom three will be Brooke, Jason, and Syesha.

Kate Nash concert is tonight and I could NOT be more excited!!!

B-B-B-Boring! April 22, 2008

Oh my dearies, I wish I had something fun and exciting for you today. But alas. Nothin. Yesterday was my busy day at work so currently I’m watching “The Bachelor” online and catching up on emails. My weekend was pretty low-key. Friday night I played “Uncle Brian” to BFF’s nephew, Jack. The three of us went and got pizza and ice cream and then came back to my place to play with the kittens. They left around 9 and I called it an early night.

Saturday I had a quiet night at home until about 11pm when I went to hang out with Page Six. While out I ran into my friend Joey who is the dance captain in Altar Boyz right now. We talked a little bit about my boyfriend, Neil, who starts in the company tonight. It was great to see him. We had a few more drinks, I started to Hulk out, so I went home and called it a night. Sunday night BFF, Page Six and I went to see my girlfriend Kristen Bell in “Forgetting Sarah Marshall.”

Hi girlfriend!! The movie was enjoyable–not the greatest thing I’ve ever seen, but enjoyable all the same. I’m really excited for “Baby Mama” this weekend and in a few short weeks….Sex and the City!! There was a new tv spot last night during “Gossip Girl.” So good!!

Tomorrow night is the Kate Nash concert and I can not WAIT!!! I’ve been looking forward to seeing her since December. Page Six and I are going and we’re sure to have a fantastic time!

So that’s me. Boring, right?

So remember back in February when I attended the Spice Girls concert (http://britunes.blogspot.com/2008/02/david-beckhams-baby-gave-me-evil-eye.html) and met my mortal enemy Cruz Beckham? Well he’s back. Yesterday after leaving a restaurant, Cruz decided to say hello the papperazzi in a way only Cruz can.

I’m telling you–this kid is trouble. With a capital T and that rhymes with P and that stands for Pool!!
Yeah, I just referenced Music Man. I’m thug like that.

Happy Friday ya’ll!

So I want to get a tattoo but I don’t know what to get or where to put it….that’s what she said. One of the ideas I had was to get a bar code with “525600” underneath but I really don’t know where I would want it….that’s what she said.

So I need your help! Leave me a comment with what tattoo you think would work well for me and where it would look cool on my body…that’s what she said?

And a good Friday to ya and yers.

I Should Be Doing Something Productive April 17, 2008

Ah well. Shoulda Woulda Coulda.
1. BFF and I went to see Wicked last night.

No matter what, that show makes me think of Crazy (of the duo Crazy and her Mom). Back in ’04 when the cast album first came out, Crazy and I made a video lip syncing to songs from the show. We painted our faces green, played different characters, hit ourselves in the face with the broom (me) and almost broke a lamp with the broom (again, me). BFF and I attempted to win the lotto but lost and a very nice Southern lady offered us her tickets as she has four and only needed two. Our Glinda was great, Elphaba was okay, and Fiyero BLEW. Seriously, he was the gayest thing on that stage. I kept commenting on how amazed I was that the Gershwin was sold out being the biggest house on Broadway but Wicked is a monster–that show will run forEVAH. Seriously, it’s the new Cats/Chorus Line/Phantom.

2. Kristy Lee Cook went home last night. Finally.

Ding Dong the witch is….voted off.

3. I ain’t got no #3. So instead I’ll leave you with this gem:

These Are a Few of My Favorite Things… April 16, 2008

Posted by britunes2 in Uncategorized.

In line with my “this is what I love” list last blog post, I thought I would post a few of my current favorite things. I’ve left things like Alanis and Sex and the City off the list…and they’re obviously always my favorite things. I really should be working, but my jorb isn’t that important–it can wait.

10. Pizza @ 3 am from the Ray’s on 8th and 53rd

Yum!! It’s making me hungry just looking at it! I have to say, there’s nothing like a slice (or two) of Ray’s pizza after a heavy night of drinking. And if you’re going to the one on 8th there is a weirdly cute guy who works the late night shift who looks like a cuter version of Andy Samberg. Sure the pizza has calories but you can work it out the next day! Make sure to go in the far left corner though so no one has to witness you CHOWING DOWN…which is usually what happens to at 3 am…

9. Carrie Bradshaw and Mr. Big

Yeah…they don’t really look like that anymore. But I have to say, they are some of my favorite things in the whole world. The way that Carrie looks at her reflection in the tv…how Big lifts her back when you pet it…the purring!! They’re cute little bitches. And funny!

8. Zuma

If you’re ever on the phone with me…and I’m at home…chances are I’m playing Zuma. I don’t know what it is about this game but I’m totally addicted! I have been for years, too. I used to play the online version but I kept beating that and so finally this summer I caved and bought the full sized thing. All I have to say is… “ZUMA.”

7. Flip-Flops

One of my favorite things about Spring is that I get to wear flip flops again wherever I go. Very, very rarely in the summer do I wear shoes when I’m not required to (work, working out, etc) and I am very excited for that. It is definitely time for me to buy a few more pairs as the ones I have are a bit outdated. That’s one shopping trip I can’t wait for!!

6. SNL’s Kristen Wiig

In just a few short years, Kristen Wiig has become one of my favorite people in the world. She manages to make every character completely hilarious and is so good at what she does. I am definitely missing Maya Rudolph on SNL, but Wiig and Amy Pohler almost make up for it. I urge everyone to head to NBC.com and check out the video of Kristen Wiig’s “Just Kidding” girl. She’s amazing justkidding she’s not justkidding she’s your mom justkidding she’s my mom just kidding my mom’s right here justkidding she’s in Ohio justkidding she’s on an elephant justkidding what’s an elephant justkidding I’m an elephant….I’m serious. It’s genius.

5. Heineken Beer

Ah…doesn’t a Heineken just sound so amazing right now? Light, refreshing, gets you drunk–what more could you ask for in a drink?! The big H has definitely been my drunk of choice lately.

4. BFF

Oh BFF…like raindrops on roses and brown paper packages tied up in string, BFF is totally one of my favorite things! Whether we’re seeing a musical together, singing karaoke, out at a bar, or just sitting on my couch watching tv–he’s totes fun to be around! He’d be higher up on the list, but sometimes he has PMS and is a little scary. 🙂 Justkiddingjustkidding BFF!!!

ps. I’m not kidding. It is really scary…oh crap…he can see this, can’t he? Ah hell…

3. Jon and Kate Plus 8!!!!!!

O. M. Gay. I love this show so much. I don’t know why either–clearly I’m not a big fan of children. But maybe it’s because I can see them from afar and don’t have to like….touch them or anything. Not that I’d be able to touch them…oh boy…this is going bad really fast. Anyway, I love this show–let’s just leave it at that. Monday’s at 9 on TLC!!!!

2. [tos]

Ya’ll know I’ve been lovin‘ me some [tos] lately. If you’re not in the know, you need to be in the know immediately, if not sooner. [title of show] comes to Broadway in July at the Lyceum theater (Julyceum) and I need you all to be prepared. Seriously though, the musical makes me laugh harder than ever and still touches me even though I’ve known about it for over four months. I can’t wait til July!! “Get out of here Cheyenne Jackson!”

Actually…on a side note….
1.5 Cheyenne Jackson

Sigh…no explanation needed.

And the number 1 thing I love lately…

1. LemonheadsSince I was a little kid I have loved this fruity candy. I’ll never forget the time we were on a family trip and stopped at a gas station and I bought some Lemonheads. My dad thought I ate candy too much so he would never let me buy any on my own. He thought I was eating some candy…I lied and said no…then he found them and knocked them out of my hand into the parking lot. It was like slo motion–I could see all of my Lemonheads spilling into the dirty gas station parking lot–“Nooooooooooo” He is now over my addiction to candy and is fine with it. Lemonheads can’t be found everywhere, that’s why when you find them it’s a rare treat. The convenience store on the main floor of my building has them and I find myself sneaking down there often to buy some. Ah…I love Lemonheads.

So that’s that! I’m off to do some work! Oh yeah…American Idol. David Cook was awesome, as was Syeshia. Carly, Brooke, and Kristy will be in the bottom three with Brooke White going home. Thats my story and I’m sticking to it!!

Get Ready for some Cheese April 14, 2008

Hello everyone. I hope you had a nice weekend. Welcome back to the work week, also known as HELL. I’m currently posting this over a span of two hours as I am busy putting files and projects together but seeing as it takes FOREVER to print some stuff out, I need something keep my hands busy. So a blog post it is.

Friday night I had my “event” at Porky’s which ended up being just a whole lot of drams. First of all, I was informed by many people that they were offended I didn’t invite them. My apologies go out to all of you–I had a limited number of people I could invite. We all thought it was drink for $20 for four hours but when we got there, they never took our money. Score! As it turns out, though I was informed I won the 4 for 20, I was put on the list as 1 hour for free. As soon as 11pm hit, the bartender bitch put on her ugly mask and her fake tits started spewing hate everywhere. I was called a ‘faggot’ and promptly grabbed my gaggle of girls and gays and left that place. It was all for the best though because we headed to Lemongrass Grill’s karaoke and had a fantastic time.

A special shout out to BFF, Page Six (uh oh…I guess that doesn’t work for him anymore…well it kinda does), Kido and Matt, Bridge, Mo, Debroah and um….the other girl in the brown dress who’s name I never remember, and Daniel for sticking the night out. I love my friends! I was able to hang out with Daniel a fair amount and he’s such a sweetheart. Can’t say there’s a future as he lives in Boston but I’m looking forward to a nice friendship with him–he’s honestly one of the nicest and sweetest guys I’ve ever met.

Saturday was a day full of recovery, as was Sunday. I had a bit of a moment Sunday night. For whatever reason I was just completely lonely and feeling down. I have fantastic friends and am having a fantastic time in the NYC but for whatever reason I was missing my friends and my life in Salt Lake. I was prepared to post a blog about what I missed but then I thought “what in the world would that accomplish?” It would simply make me more depressed, which is ridiculous. I’m trying to approach life and my relationships in a different, more positive way and making a list about what I miss in my past completely defeats that purpose. So I now present to you a list. A list of things that I love about New York and where my life is at.

*I love experiencing my first Spring in New York. You can feel the city coming out of it’s Winter slumber.

*I love that I live in a place where I can experience concerts from lesser known artists like Eric Hutchinson and Kate Nash who probably wouldn’t have come to Salt Lake.

*I love that I’m literally down the block from theater and while I can’t always afford it, those times when I can make it worth it.

*I love the amazing architecture of the city and the history of the buildings I pass everyday.

*I love love LOVE the fact that I can walk to work. Brill.

*I love that I work with my Best Friend and get to see him every day. That’s a luxury few people can afford. I also love that I’m more in love with him than ever and that we still have a fantastic time together.

*I love that I’ve reconnected with friends from the past and am looking forward to lifelong friendships with them.

*I love that I’ve already experienced love and loss in the city. It’s helps remind me that I’m alive.

*I love the neighborhood in which I live. Sure I may not have the greatest building or the greatest apartment but I live in the exact neighborhood I wanted to.

*I love that I’ve finally found a fantastic roommate and that my house is starting to feel like a home. I also love that I was able to maintain my sanity during the whole drama that was Gen X.

*I love having the chance to run into people that I admire (Kristen Bell, John Mayer, [tos] cast) and can express my gratitude for the work they’ve done to their art to their face.

*I love laughing so hard til it hurts while out with my boys and slapping faces for no reason. And pizza at 3am.

*I love having a friend like Page Six who can appreciate all my craziness and still loves me for it.

*I’m more in love with my cats than ever. I love that the experience of moving brought us closer together (that sounds lame, I know) but they make me laugh so much and I’m happy I stuck with it and moved with them.

*I love already having a routine of sushi and Cold Stone.

*I love that my gym is in my building and that I can work out everyday.

*I love that people like Taylor and Kelly have already visited me. It makes me feel so loved.

*I love that I still have a job and am good at it.

*I love the opportunities that have been presented to me and look forward to more in the future.

*I love candy. I just do.

and finally…

*I love that I had the balls to pick up my entire life and move to New York. Everytime I think I made the wrong decision I look back on my life and remember how comfortable I was and how I needed this shake up. And even though it’s scary and uncertain and expensive and hard and emotional I know that all of these experiences are helping me to find my way and that I’m where I’m meant to be.

Yes I realize this was a cheesy post but sometimes it helps to focus on the things in your life that you love instead of all the negativity around you. Try it sometime. And always remember to Gay It Forward.
