I went into hiding this weekend. Sometimes I just need to hide from the world. I came out today because I had to work, but I kinda want to go back. I can't, because I'm an adult and I'm supposed to act like it occasionally, but I want to.
I didn't really think about this until today, but I used to hide a lot when I was a kid. I'd take a flashlight into bed with me and pull my blankets over my head and it was like no one could see me. I'd build myself little lean-to forts in the woods, too. And my favorite thing of all was to set up folding chairs and drape blankets over them until I had a nice, dark little house to hide in. That's kind of what I did this weekend. I live alone and I STILL made a little cave out of blankets and hid inside of it so no one could see me.
I used to just bring soda and a treat with me to my hiding places, but this time I brought Friday Night Lights (the TV show) with me, too. They showed two episodes on Bravo yesterday afternoon, and then I went online and watched a bunch of episodes in reverse order. They have the entire season free at NBC.com! I'd heard it was good, and I saw the pilot, which was pretty good, but for whatever reason I just hadn't watched it. But it is SO good! I totally got into it.
What else ... the radio thing on Friday was good. I was very nervous and pretty much freaking out leading up to it, but then I pulled myself together and I think it went OK. They asked me back, so I guess it wasn't too bad! I'll have to see if there's a link somewhere or something and then you can hear the infamous Swishy laugh. Ha.
Finally, a couple random thoughts on People.com's headlines tonight:
--Jared Leto is a freaking tool. Seriously. Every night at, like, 2:17 a.m. I see his stupid video on VH1 and I'm like, "NICE EYELINER, JORDAN CATALANO!" Now, apparently, he has broken his nose by diving into the crowd at one of his concerts. Good. GOOD! I can't wait to see pretty boy Jared Leto walking around with white tape and a splint on his nose. HA!
--Mark Ruffalo is hot. I bought 13 Going on 30 the day it came out because of him.
--I know a lot of stuff, but I did NOT know Mary-Louise Parker was dating Denny from Grey's Anatomy. Hmm. I'm not sure what I think of that yet.
--And then there's this headline: "Gwyneth Paltrow Reveals Her Kids' Famous Friends." I am not EVEN going to start with that one. I WANT to, but I will be here all damn night if I do, and it's already 2:03 a.m.
(Oh, yeah--I am also LOVING this season of Amazing Race. I just got done watching it. I wish these teams could race each other over and over. Best quotes of the night: 1) "Security!!" 2) "Rob is not Jesus" and 3) "Charla should like him." Ha ha ha ha.)
