So, because I'm super sexy and all the boys want me I've had pinkeye for the last three weeks. It's been coming and going and I DON'T KNOW WHY!! (yeah yeah, poop jokes blablabla) I wash my hands religiously, I've sanitized my phone, my computer and my glasses and I've even thrown away my unnecessarily expensive CoverGirl eyeliner and mascara. And yet, it persists. I know it's not contagious because no one around me has gotten it (that I know of) and if you know anything about me, it's that I LOVE butterfly kisses.
I was getting sick of waking up thinking my eyes had been stapled shut so I went back to the urgent care. The first time I went was when I first had it THREE WEEKS AGO, but the "doctor" refused to give me eyedrops. I say "doctor" because she was wearing a sunhat indoors. Real doctors don't do that crap. Anyway, they finally gave me drops and now I get to look forward to purposely putting foreign liquid into my eye 4 times a day for 3-4 days. But as the great Missy Elliot once said, "is it worth it? let me work it. I put my thing down, flip it and reverse it." Words to live by.
Enough about my undeniable sex appeal, let's talk about something else. Something I've talked about in a previous post with new developments. How about... Die Fokken Antwoord?! I already told you I'm going to Lollapalooza in August to see them but that was before I knew they were coming to Minneapolis. If I had known that, I wouldn't have dropped almost $200 on the Chicago show. Alas, the Lollapalooza tickets aren't refundable so I guess I HAVE to see them twice along with the Black Keys, Metric, the Shins and Black Sabbath... ugh.... woe is me.
I found out they're coming to First Ave the day after the Lollapalooza show. If you've ever been to First Ave, you know that you can't beat seeing a show at that venue, especially if it's one of your favorite bands. I may as well just make best friends with them and road trip back up to Minneapolis with them after the Chicago show. I mean, it can't be that hard. Look at how friendly they are!
What's that you say? You're jealous!? Of my pinkeye!?! You're disgusting. Ohhhh yeah, the Die Antwoord thing. I get it. I feel your pain. Too bad you can't come with me... JUST KIDDING YOU CAN!!! You can bid on going to the First Ave show with me here! You can also bid on other sweet hangout time with improvisers from Minneapolis, including having a beach party with the Class of 94 (my improvised Saved by the Bell, DeGrassi, After School Special show). All of the proceeds from the auction go to HUGE Improv Theater, the nonprofit theater where I spend way too much of my time. Scratch that, make it "just the right amount of time".
