September Catch-Up

I'm trying my best to not get too far behind on the blog, like I did last year, so I'm going to make this recap quick and painless, list style:

*The knot on my head occurred when my chalkboard fell off the wall and landed on my forehead. It's not a terribly large board, but it hit me so hard, my glasses flew off of my face across the floor. Ow. Rough day.

*Labyrinth was amazing. Great movie. Love for Bowie forever.

*I also saw The Neverending Story. I've seen it a million times, but it was cool to watch it on the big screen and see a behind-the-scenes show about it. Of course the tears flowed when Artex died, as always.

* I also saw a short film called Monsters Anonymous, which was a special screening at a theater in Waveland, Mississippi. It was directed by Jeremy London, and the humor was similar to that of Mallrats, in which he starred. He and his family live in South Mississippi, where he runs an acting studio. The actors did a good job, and the makeup was phenomenal. A portion of the ticket price benefitted Warriors for Willow. Consider giving that sweet girl a follow on Facebook.

*I have Muscular Dystrophy clinic in Jackson next week. It's been a while, and I'm not sure what to talk to them about, but I need to make sure my disability continues to be well-documented (I hope to God they're doing that). After my horrendous experience at the MDA clinic in New Orleans, I will just be grateful to be taken seriously, even if they tell me there's nothing else they can do. One concern I've had is not having enough money for a hotel room, and the motels have scary reviews. It finally hit me that there is a site called Airbnb, so I joined it and found what looks to be a diamond in the rough - a private mother in law suite in a gorgeous neighborhood on the edge of Ridgeland. I'll give my review when I get home.

*Taco Trucks On Every Corner was one of the funniest hashtags on Twitter ever. Absolutely made my day. The memes are probably lost in an abyss of political tweets at this point, but trust me...it was hilarious.  #TacoTrucksOnEveryCorner

*This campaign is agony, and I will be so glad when it's over.

I said I wasn't going to let this get as long as the last post, so I'll call it done. See you in October! P.S. - So happy it's Autumn!!!
