"Hey awkward girl in the front row, will you pass this souvenir to a real fan?"
"Sure thing boss."
Nonetheless, the show was fun and I was happy to share the experience with my dad. On an aside, every time I see a cello, I picture a giant picking it up and playing it like a violin. It's the little things...
The highlight of the night was finding out that Kacey Musgraves was the opening act. I love her voice, and if I could I would steal it and store it in a seashell just like Ursula in The Little Mermaid. Does that make me a bad person? No. Just misunderstood.
Anyway, I love Kacey's voice and her songwriting, and I have already pre-ordered her cd which comes out this month. It's not my favorite of her songs, but I like how Merry Go 'Round is eerily applicable to small town West Virginia. Also, she commented on how pretty our local theatre is. What a class act.
While we were in Macy's, Lola grabbed a black and pink bedazzled Hello Kitty shirt meant for a pre-teen. She nonchalantly placed it in her stroller and said, "this shirt is one of my likes." (When Lola is pleased with something she either says it is one of her likes, or that it's delicious.) When Brandy tried to put the shirt back on the clothes rack, Lola shouted "But it's just my size!"
Lola also insisted on sitting on the bottom part of her stroller, like this:
|Rollin' through the mall in my stroller,|
sippin' on milk and juice, laid back,
with my mind on my paci and my paci on my mind.
Finally, I got a drink on Sunday with my friend Sarah so we could discuss a matter of great importance. Sarah is thinking of joining the local roller derby league. The problem is, she needs a nickname to put on her jersey. The nickname needs to be clever and lend itself easily to cheers and heckling. It also can't be too offensive because her family will see it.
I suggested Sarah go by the name "Rack Kuhn," since her last name is Kuhn. She likes the idea of wearing a black Zorro mask, and I like the idea of heckling the other team members with things like "Hide your cat food, here comes the Rack Kuhn!" or "Hope you had your rabies shot! Viva Rack Kuhn!" We aren't sold on the idea, however, so any suggestions you have would be welcome. Also, what is roller derby?
