Adventures with Dr. Lady Cutie Troublemaker

Life is in flux BIG TIME these days. I want to keep in touch with all of my peeps. The Internet is this beautiful thing. I can move to a brand new city and still stay in easy, near-daily contact with the people I love. When I feel connected to the people in my life that matter, I am unstoppable!

What could be funner?! Yes, I said FUNNER!

Pried the Arctic Monkeys out of the CD long enough to put in the Raconteurs, which came in the mail yesterday. It’s KICKASS! Gloriously derivative in all the right ways – Beatles-y, Zeppelin-y, and just excellent in its own right.

Also, bought another container of that toffee and ate the entire fucking thing… in a day. I am a disgusting pig, but a happy one. Y’all forgive my pooch in the pictures from the next few days!

And it’s FRIDAY! And it’s karaoke-time! WAHOO!

Oh, and did anyone catch the reference in the title of the last post? If you did, then you were probably friends with me in the 8th grade. 

One more update while I’m doing updates. For those who’ve known me for a while, you will understand that it is HUGELY wonderful news that Hamilton got a real professorship at the University of Leeds for next year. He doesn’t read this blog, so he won’t see your congratulations if you post them here, but you know… if you know him, feel happy for him. This has been a long time coming. If you want his info to send congratulations, let me know, and I’ll hook you up.

Yeah, it was a pretty good night for karaoke…

More pictures to follow… (check here)

There’s video, too, although I need someone to help me figure out how to fix the videos that were taken sideways in portrait mode. I’ve figured out how to rotate them so they are upright, but it’s stretched the images, making me and the other singers look really wide! Help! I hate to be vain, but I have my limits! 

Update: Looks like I might be getting somewhere.

I am not on the Cape

By Abby at 6:14 pm on Thursday, April 20, 2006

You may have noticed that I am not driving to Cape Cod right now. I caught that, too. It kinda bums me out, actually. I have a friend at work who has a house there, and she generously offered it to me since she knew I was a bit on the broke side (a bit – hah! – actually, I’m MUCH more broke now than I was when she offered). Anyhoo, I found out last week that the plumber came across some problems when readying the house for the season, and unfortunately, that meant no trip for me… at least not now.

Pondering this unfortunate state of affairs, I decided to take Jeep up on the roof. I have taken to semi-daily trips up there with Maggie since the weather has improved, but Jeep has been very interested in sitting in the window, and she even escaped up the stairs when my upstairs neighbor and I returned from yoga last night. She used to go out on the deck all the time in Bloomington. So I put on the little kitty leash and off we went. As we reached the roof, I felt something warm on my arm. And so we wandered back down to my apartment at a brisk clip, I released her, and I washed the pee off my sweatshirt sleeve.


I sure hope my luck changes… a lot. At least there’s karaoke tomorrow night, and it’s FREE. I’ve been looking up good duets to do. Oh, and I get to meet Kristin’s parents tonight, which should be cool. I’ve recently started referring to Kristin as my "boyfriend" since we hang out all the time. It’s good for us, as fellow recent dumpees who want to have lives, but who aren’t exactly on the make just yet. I hope my boyfriend’s parents like me! 😛

Adventures With Dr. Lady Cutie Troublemaker!

By Abby at 10:18 pm on Monday, May 16, 2005

Check out the new blog title! Can’t decide if it’s going to be a permanent change or not. Either way, it’s FUN! Thanks, Aaron. I’d kinda forgotten about doing that. Oh, and thanks to Indian Lady for writing "Dr." in front of my name on my karaoke slip on Saturday night. It was cool to be called to the front by the name "Dr. Abby."
