Courtney Confessions

Ya dig the new Courtney Confessions logo? I dig.
1.) I have an obsession with memoirs written by comedy TV starlets. While Tina Fey's Bossypants is my obvious favorite, Mind Kaling's book made me embarrass myself with outbursts of raucous laughter and the story of Rachel Dratch's personal life has a surprising amount of heart and charm. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that Any Poeher's book is released soon (it was announced last January).

We got our Christmas tree last night, but it was too late to decorate it,
so Sam is currently naked in our living room. Is it weird that I name all of our trees?
2.) Decorating for Christmas is always a surprise. In just one short year, I completely forget about all of the Christmas decor I own and spend the whole night unpacking items and exclaiming, "Oh! I didn't know we had this!" I've seriously been trying to remember what our tree skirt looks like, and I'm still totally clueless. (Is it red? I think it's red. Guess I'll find out here soon.) So really, if you want to surprise me on my birthday, you can just take something from the back of my closet that I haven't seen in ages and re-gift it to me. I won't know the difference.

Our forecast for this weekend.
3.) The best way to ensure that a winter storm won't be nearly as bad as they say it's going to be is to keep talking about how bad it's going to be. This morning I visited Bloomingfoods to grab a steaming cup of my favorite coffee and the clerk behind the counter asked, "Are you sure you don't want to stock up on any food items? It's gonna be a bad one!" To which I said, "DAMMIT! Thanks a lot!" and then stormed out.

Although I should be rooting AGAINST this winter storm because tomorrow is Clayton's and my 5-year wedding anniversary and we have big plans to go see Christmas at the Zoo in Indianapolis. Snow on the highway or not, I WANT TO SEE SOME DANG PENGUINS!
4.) I check Fandango daily so I can be among the first in line to reserve tickets to the first showing of Anchorman 2. This movie means THAT much to me. Tickets go on sale at our theater tomorrow, baby! And if you use that knowledge to get tickets for yourself and they're sold out before I can get to them, I will hunt you down and do unpleasant things to you.

Well, that's all I have. It's almost 10 o'clock, I just walked through the door not even a half hour ago because I had to teach my class despite the dangerous, icy weather conditions, and this girl needs some pizza.

Stay safe out there! It's gonna be a bad one!
