Seven years later…

Today I had a video shoot for something I can’t tell you about because apparently publicity is bad.  I don’t entirely understand it but it was fun and at one point my friend Maile tried to do my hair, but as I was blow drying it I realized that I was in some sort of time warp.

Me, seven years after my icon picture:
7 years later

A little plumper, a little more wrinkled, a little wiser, the exact same hair dryer, but all in all…still me.

    Ps and totally unrelated as I have recently moved to the midwest which is rought with tornadoes and 100plus heat, how exactly does one make a wine slushy because that might just be the cure. Yes yes I know margaritas and tequila but after an unfortunate mechanical bull incident I have been banned by the public at large from partaking of tequila or any other agave based spirits. your help is greatly appreciated.

My vote: they are moving forward with plans to make Let’s Pretend into a full length movie – your version of Channing’s Magic Mike, only with less strippers/stripping and more random adventures hiding out in public restrooms. I have to say, your decision to have Matt McConaughey to play the younger/childhood version of your dad is pretty brilliant – he’ll pull off that Texas Crazy no problem – while Joe Manganiello will be fabulous as Victor. I can SO see him snarling “it is NOT a nice chicken” at the UPS dude.

    I’m with Caramelia (#165), my first thought was that you have a twinkle of happy about you in that little quirk of lips etc.🙂 It’s good to see.

    Coincidentally, I’m still using the hairdryer my brother gave me for christmas the year I turned 15 and I’m 38 now. lol. I’m almost afraid of it giving up one day lol.

    I’m sorry if this borders on stalker-ish but you are seriously my favorite person on the internet. And probably the most helpful too (except if we’re counting Google, but the almighty G is not human, so probably not). ANYWAY. I stopped seeing my amazing therapist (long story) and I’m now seeing one that well, put nicely….kinda sucks. And I think part of why I’m not collapsing into a helpless heap of mess is thanks to you, your adventures (and mis-adventures) and the legion of followers you’ve amassed over the years. It seems like you went around the internet and picked the nicest, coolest and more compassionate people and brought them all here to hang out. So, long story short- you’ve come a long way in 7 years, and you’ve helped a lot of us do the same.🙂
