Icon Doing Improv

I hope you all had a great Labor Day weekend! Mine was a working weekend but it was a very good one anyway! Saturday night my dream came true Jane Fonda finally showed up as the surprise guest on the improv show that Ben Schwartz has at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater usually once a month on Saturday nights called SNOWPANTS. Ben is in a movie with Jane Fonda and while they were shooting it he told her about his long  running improv show that he has and that stars like Helen Hunt, Don Cheadle & Michael C Hall have tried their hand at improv. She was great!! It was a whole lot of fun!

I worked the early shift Saturday and Sunday 7:30-4 so it made it nice for me to be able to go out after work and on Sunday Chris and I went out to dinner at a Greek Mediterranean place near the AMC 16 Theaters in Burbank andwe went  to see We're The Millers that movie was hysterical. A big 2 thumbs up!  Monday I worked 3:30-12 so I was able to get a little relaxing in before work. But boy am I tired today after getting off at midnight! Billy Elliot is holding his own other than being a skinnier cat he seems fine. He is eating, drinking, purring and even playing a little bit with Lily. So all is good for now!

HI Dru!! Happy Tuesday. Oh wow, how cool that you got to see Jane Fonda! You're right, she is such an icon. I'm so glad you had a nice weekend. I can't wait to see We're the Millers. :)

Awww, I'm glad Billy Elliot is doing well considering. You never know, you might get a couple of more years with him. :) Have a great day, my dear. Big hugs!

Hi Dru! Glad Jane showed up- she's inspirational how great she looks for in her 70's! Thanks for the heads up about CBS- we watched episode 9 of Dexter last night- not sure why Sunday's episode wasn't On Demand yesterday. We saw the one where it ended with the psychiatrist and her son together. My prediction was off (I think) that SHE was the brain surgeon.

Think about you and Billy Elliot a lot. He may surprise us all and hang in there a good long time! Look at Dylan!

Hi Dru, sounds like you had fun and Jane sure looks good for her age. I agree with Darylynn, so just enjoy the boy as much as you can. Hugs
