Time to escape the comfort zone, people!

I had a really good time last night by forcing myself to get out of my cute, cozy little box and go do something out of the ordinary.
Over the past few years I have been choosing comfort and solitude over adventure more and more, call it the security of having a great husband and great home, but putting on my cozies after work and having a snuggle on the couch ranks right up there with my favorite things. I would honestly rather stay in and watch something on tv or on demand then get all dolled up and go to a bar to sit around and talk to a bunch of people I don't really know. (most nights, and this dosen't include my actual friends)
Last night, however, was different.
Last night I got a text from a good friend asking me to go out to the college and see a private screening of the new FX show Terriers with her. My first reaction was: Naw..I'm cozy and I would have to put on something cute and fix my makeup..too hard. After about 6 follow up texts (Michelle can be quite persuasive) I finally got my lazy ass up and went out to the college with her. Let me explain what I walked into..a residence hall with about 25 19 year old girls sitting around and giving us a look that says "WTH are they doing here..they are old". I was instantly regretting my decision. They are all talking about a chem lab and Michelle and I are discussing pre-schools and bus routes. Awkward. I shake it off and decide that the little 19 year olds can suck it and I am staying, I came here to do something out of the ordinary after all, what did I expect? So fully prepped and starting to get sucked into the excitement around me I settle into to the screening room and start to loosen up. Michelle starts smacking the crap out of me and I notice that the actors have arrived. Okay, I will geek out really quick and tell you that I, even at the ripe old age of 30, was a bit star struck. Oh. Dear. Lord. Donal Logue and Michael Raymond-James were hanging out in the same room as I, and they are HOT. Just sayin'. It also needs to be mentioned that the show, Terriers, was actually really good. I enjoyed it and it had a nice mix of comedic timing and bad-assery to it. I'm a fan. I am including the pic of me with the guys, although it is an AWFUL picture of me, it really shows how freaking adorable they are.


  1. So the guys were "hot" and not "sexy". I feel better.

  2. LOL, you should :)of course, I also called them, yeah. you know.
