Celeb watch, on my timetable

I did not know until today that Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey were married.

Or that they were a couple in the first place.

Or that her children were his children. (I did know vaguely, I think, that she had kids).

I'm all caught up now, people. Rest easy.

A song in honor of my return to La La Land

It's been real, KC. Until next time.

Meanwhile, my friends Corie and Cyle and I are working on establishing the Republic of Califansas. This effort will merge the states of Kansas and California so that travel between the two can be more convenient and frequent. I'll be drafting a flag prototype soon, and then we'll get going on a constitution. You're welcome.

That's me

The other night I was out with some grad school friends--and had a fantastic time, by the way--and below is a sampling of some of the ridiculous (although heartfelt) things I said while we were out.

Sample Conversation #1:

Danny: What's your all time favorite song?

Bailey: Mm, I don't think I really know...

Danny: What's your favorite Celine Dion song?

Bailey: Well, it's a tie between "A New Day has Come," "To Love you More," and "That's the Way it is," but "That's the Way it is" is really an anthem of mine, so if I had to choose, it'd probably be that one. But "To Love you More" is extremely beautiful, so...

Sample Conversation #2:

Michael: Who was your first celebrity crush?

Bailey: Mm, I don't really know...

Danny: Who is your current celebrity crush?

Bailey: Ray Romano!

My cat just put his nose on my toe.

I don't want to leave him behind again.

:( :( :(

There's no place like KANSAS!

I should really get myself into bed.

But it is only 12:30 a.m. in L.A. time, so...

Did I mention I'm reunited with my cat in Kansas?!?!?!

He is a little sore at me--fair, since I dropped him off at Grandma and Grandpa's for a very long time--but we're on our way back to being besties, I'm sure.

Over and out,
Ms. Up Past Her Bedtime

P.S. Oh, and to my L.A. peeps who might have read this post and deduced that I've moved back to Kansas: not the case! Just on vacay! Back soon!

Whoa, did I just make L.A. home with that above statement?

Ope, Dibbs is nearby, gotta go! Mandatory bonding!

Sorry for the dearth of recent posts!

Yes indeed I have not posted since Saturday.

Y'all are gonna have to give me some slack because I recently started a new job and moved to a new place, where my WiFi is not yet properly equipped.

I'll be back to it here soon, folks. Thanks for your patience.

What are the odds?

I just hopped on and apparently the temperature is the same right now in my current town and the two previous ones I lived in.

I wonder why they do that

Have you ever noticed how many movies start with someone waking up and/or getting ready to go to work or school?

Does this seem a little unoriginal to you?

I actually love it when movies start this way. I don't really care if it's unoriginal. It's just interesting to me that the starts of so many films kick off with the start to a character's day. Rather than starting with, say, lunch.

Maybe it's just a way to leave out a lot of dialogue while the opening credits are rolling? Or a way to throw some sex appeal in the movie right away (with shots of underwear, lipstick, etc.) so people won't leave the theatre?

By the way, no one's ever told me that I think too much.

:) That's not true. They tell me that a lot. And I don't argue with them.

Skylar Astin is cute

Sorry for the recent slacking on the posts, peeps.

Started a new job, things are a little cray-cray.

Crazy enough that I accidentally handed my editors a list of story ideas today with the term "peeps" in it.

Eek. Professionalism for the win, peeps!

In other news, enjoy this little vid (seriously, the music in this movie: stellar. You have to appreciate this harmonization on some level, even if you think a capella or pop music is uncool. And the little romance thread in the storyline of this movie put a big, unabashed, didn't-realize-it-was-there-right-away-because-it-was-such-a-natural-response smile on my face at the end of the flick):

Phew! What a day!

So today was a pretty crazy full day.

First, I got to chat with this little munchkin on Skype:

(who used to look like this, by the way):

Second, I went to a Mizzou watch party with an alumni group here in L.A. We might've lost the game, but there was one pretty great interception-run-back-for-a-touchdown. And I made some new friends. Friends who like to watch football, I might add; something that is not all that big of a deal here in SoCal.

And finally, I went to a movie with an old college friend, met her friend who she brought with, and THEN, just as a little bonus, met someone who went to high school in the SAME DISTRICT as I did at a movie theatre in HOLLYWOOD.

Are you kidding me?! In huge L.A., I meet a guy who knows people I know??? From KANSAS??? WithOUT going to a pre-planned "people from Kansas" event, like the Mizzou alumni football-watching group?


Looked him up on Facebook. One of our mutual friends is one of my really good friends.

And to top it all off, my pals and I (minus our newest pal, who felt our movie choice was not one he would enjoy--boy did he miss out) saw a quite enjoyable flick. Did it push some offensive buttons? On occasion. But that aside, great flick:

And in case you're wondering, Yours Truly (aka Grandma) was out past midnight. I know. It surprised me too. Worth it.

Watch me make a grown up decision

I want to watch "The O.C."

I'm postponing my watch party to go exercise.

This is an example in self control, friends. I exhibit it on occasion.

Over and out,
