The Great Gatsby

Oh, look at that. It’s Friday. Weird.

Mother’s Day is this weekend. Did you get your mom/wife anything? If you didn’t, don’t worry because you still have time to clean the entire house. Because she’s not kidding when she says all she wants for Mother’s Day is a clean house. And 25 hours of sleep. So get on that. Go. Do it.

Normally, I would have lots of links and stuff to share with you today. But I wasn’t on Facebook or Twitter this week, so yeah . . . I’ve got nothing. Seriously. The New York Times Arts section was good this week. Alan Cumming does this totally cray Lady Macbeth monologue. It’s pretty intense. Watching it, all I could think was, “Why did I ever think acting and I were MFEO?” For serious.

Oh, The Great Gatsby opens today. Gah. I really want to see it. I just re-read the novel and 1) realized I missed all the humor back in high school (oops), and 2) holy sh*t, that is some seriously gorgeous prose. It shimmers. Literally.*

Watch this video.** Thanks, Brian.

Also, if I seem bipolar lately, it’s because I’ve got lots on my mind/plate. Big changes are a-coming, which I can’t wait to share with you. But I have to wait. I am not pregnant.

And . . . I kind of have a surprise for you. I’ve been thinking of this for a while now, and I’ve kind of been scared to do it, but I really want to, so I’m just going to do it. This weekend. So, you have to wait until Monday. But I think you’re really going to like it.

Have a great weekend, lovies.

*I meant figuratively.

**Kenyon College is the real college I went to before transferring to Eastman, so even though I would have graduated a few years before this speech was given by one Mr. David Foster Wallace, I like to imagine I was there. Because that would have been amazing.
