This weekend was kind of amazing. After waiting 12 hours in the rain, sleet, hail and snow, my friends and I got in to see a live taping of SNL. No rehearsal bullshit, the real deal. We got to NBC Studios at 7 PM on Friday and waited until the standby tickets were handed out at 7 AM Saturday. While the weather was freezing, we all tried to stay warm via spooning with each other (or random British men that were in awe of us crazy New Yorkers "cue-ing up" for a sketch comedy show), huddling under sheets, blankets, hats and shower curtains, and wearing multiple pairs of socks. We met some pretty unique characters, such as the crazy old lady who made sure that there was no cutting in line while she remained asleep under her oh-so hip green sleeping bag, a douchebag woman who tried to coerce us into skipping the real show to attend the rehearsal while she was loudly gossiped to her douchebag friend over the phone into the wee hours of the night (this bitch even woke up the lioness that was Ilana), and other die-hard fans that were just as crazy as we were. All in all, it was so worth it. Being in the presence of people like Tina Fey, Steve Martin, Bill Hader, Amy Poehler and Kristen Wiig, just to name a few, was an ethereal experience. Seeing how much fun they were having made me envious of that fact that this is their job! I can't wait to go do it all again, hopefully when the weather it just a little bit warmer. Just a little bit.
On a different note, Marion Cotillard at the Oscars was the cutest thing I have ever seen. Congrats to all who won, and to those who lost, (I'm talking to you, Norbit), there's always next year.

Once again, sorry for the extremely long hiatus. Anyhoo, yesterday was a very eventful day. I went with my sister, her boyfriend and Siegel to see Chicago on Broadway and it was really good. It was as good as the movie, but good nonetheless. Our seats were amazing (I could literally see the performers spit and sweat from where we were sitting) and we sat in front of Steve Schrippa from The Sopranos. The person who played Velma was kind of scary, not gonna lie. After the show I venture to Bryce's house for her Decade Party and I decided to dress in 1970s attire. The party was a lot of fun but then I died at around 1:30 AM. I made out with Bryce's toilet and wanted nothing more than to fall asleep on her bathroom floor. Bryce led my drunk self onto her bed (in which she forced one of her friends to get off of) and then I proceeded to make out with her garbage pail. I was up until 11:30 AM puking my guts up and Bryce was trying to nurse me back to health with water and a baguette...which I later threw up. All in all, it was a good night. Oh yeah, there was a bunch of drama too but nothing that important. =)
You know you love me...

Sorry for the hiatus. I've been way busy doing absolutely nothing. Well, that's not completely true. I saw Jenn and Christina a few days ago and we had a fun love-fest. I saw Juno again with Bryce yesterday to uphold our annual Jewish Christmas tradition (we had Chinese food the night before) and make the best of Jesus' birthday. And the movie's really good, too. Aside from those things, I've basically been nocturnal. I sleep all day and wake up anywhere from 6 pm to 8 pm to the next day and then I'm awake til about 7 am- 9 am, fall asleep and then the vicious cycle starts itself again. I like to call it summer mode. Oh, summer mode.
P.S. Sam, why are you MIA!!??

Wow. Those poor Spears parents. First their amazingly hot, talented and sane older daughter became the opposite of everything in that list over the course of 12 months and now their successful, virginal and pure youngest daughter Jamie Lynn ain't no virgin no mo. Quite the opposite. She's fucking pregnant. How the hell does that shit happen? I wasn't aware Lynn Spears was that awful of a mother. Seriously, Lynn, keep yo kids on a leash! Jesus. I kind of don't want to believe it. But then again, she is "country," as Britney likes to say all the time in her interviews.
Anyway, on to other things...
Ilana left today and Ali left yesterday. Waaah. Sad times. Meh. But the Tila finale is on tonight, which makes it a little better that we've been separated. And I'm in total summer mode, which makes me happy, too. And my friends are coming home soon!
Sam wanted me to make this blog post really long so that she wouldn't have to study whilst in HSL. Sorry, Sam. =)
oh and Hi Jordan.

This weekend was really interesting. It was the last weekend that we would all be together at NYU for the first semester. And Bryce, Alex and Melissa were here, too! So we were all planning on going to some rave that ended up being in Bumblefuck, Brooklyn....seriously, no one knew where the hell we were. And we were all too drunk to actually go into the rave when we got there (by everyone, I mean M) =). Some of us were molested, peed in the middle of the street and fell all over the place on the L train...I'm not naming names. All in all, it was a good night on Saturday. On Sunday, I returned back to Brooklyn but to a place in Brooklyn I actually recognized. My home and Bryce's home! All in all, it was a good weekend.

So tonight at like 3 AM, Kenny, Alex, Lydia, Lizzie and I went to the Garden Cafe for wine and pie. The place was so "romantical" (oh, 6 year old Lydia). It was actually kind of wonderful. The pie was really good and so was the wine. Afterwards we watched Kenny for an hour whilst he smoked his giant-ass cigar and all bonded over everything. Even the drunken bums that were walking by Hayden seemed so endearing. Once again, it was kind of wonderful. Love my roomates, love my floormates. <3
