mid-night crisis

Some thoughts on a late Saturday/early Sunday (it's been a while since I've done this.

~ I've been rereading my blog lately. Have you done that? I mean, with your own blog, not mine. Or, if you don't have a blog, maybe your journal or diary or something. It's a cool thing to write down our real thoughts and later look back to see if we still agree with our former self, or to see if we've grown/changed (and if so, how much). I think I've resolved to write more about what's going on in my life. So as to remember. Excepting what's on my blog, and the evidence the existence of most people who live in my home, I don't really remember my twenties.

~ Someone rang my doorbell after 11:pm tonight and then ran away. I think I'm the only one awake in my house at this hour, but the dog kind of went off. I'm glad his barking didn't wake anyone. And I hope whomever rang my doorbell was hanging around my porch close enough to hear me heave a loud and annoyed sigh.

~ When do midlife crises typically occur? Asking for a friend.

~ Today was a weird day. I had another round of callbacks for an audition, and I did alright. I got a flat tire on the freeway. Luckily Cyndi loaned us her car so we could go to Marcia's viewing and funeral. Funerals can be so downright sad, but Marcia's services were different. She'd been ill for so long, and I've heard so many say something along the lines of, "I miss her so much, but what a relief she's not suffering any longer." I learned today that a funeral can have moments of being uplifting and comforting when it's about the celebration of a life well-lived. Afterwards I took Punkin to a birthday party, then drove to Springville; back to pick her up and bring her home. I had hoped to go to Costco but was not in the mood to battle Saturday crowds. So I took a nap. When I woke up it was dark. Turns out, even an inspiring funeral can leave one feeling overcome and, frankly, exhausted.

~ I'm watching SNL and I keep laughing out loud. Lena Dunham is hosting, and I don't watch Girls so this is the first thing I've seen her on, other than - what, The Daily Show, and the like. I like laughing out loud when I watch TV - it's a nice surprise to myself.

~ Speaking of laughing out loud when I watch TV, I've decided I want to be best friends with the person(s) responsible for writing any and all lines uttered by Craig on Parks & Rec.

I miss you. And I believe a mid-life crisis can hit any time between 25 and 65.

Good for you for rereading your writings. I can't do it yet.
