Crazy Random Happenstance

Billy: So good... Hey, this is weird. I ordered one frozen yogurt and they gave me two. You don't happen to like frozen yogurt, do you?
Penny: I love it!
Billy: You're kidding? What a crazy random happenstance!

It's my one hundredth blog post!

I've thought and thought about what I should make this post about, seeing as how it's kind of a big deal for me but in the end I figured I was over thinking it. Just stick to what I know and what I do best and that's talk about a bunch of really random pop culture things and things that make me happy and maybe an exciting announcement concerning myself.


Let's celebrate some things!

No, I'm NOT pregnant! I'll get to my exciting news in a bit (how's that for a cliffhanger, eh??). First, let's talk about some pop culture celebrations...

Like the fact that Undateable season two starts this evening!! I love this show so much. It premiered last summer and I thought I was the only person in the world who watched it until my sister and I randomly found out that we both adored it. It is executive produced by Bill Lawrence (Scrubs, Cougar Town) and it takes place in Detroit(ish). Lots of Detroit sports memorabilia being represented in every episode. It's so fun. It focuses on the friendship between Chris D'Elia's, Danny and Brent Morin's, Justin and laughter ensues every episode. I cannot say enough good things about it. It makes me so happy. Please check it out! Tonight at 9pm on NBC.

Like the fact that iZombie also premieres tonight (CW, 9pm). This show is brought to us by Rob Thomas, creative genius behind my beloved Veronica Mars. It stars Rose McIver as a brain eating zombie who assists the police with investigations. David Anders (Sark from Alias) is also in it and it's been getting really great reviews. I'm excited to watch it. You should too!

Let's celebrate the fact that this season of The Walking Dead has been my most favorite season in a very long time. Andrew Lincoln is outstanding. HE'S OUTSTANDING. No spoilers here, just know that if you gave up a couple seasons back, you should jump back in because it's crazy good. The season finale is March, 29th and it's going to be 90 minutes. 

Let's celebrate the fact that this has been one of the greatest seasons of The Vampire Diaries since the show started. Admittedly, I hated last season. I was so bummed. This is a show that rarely, if ever, let's me down so I was a bit stunned that last season was such a stinker... Until the finale. The finale was phenomenal and it set up this season perfectly. It's been fun and exciting and shocking and every great thing that it's supposed to be. I love it and my pop culture heart is thrilled that I love it again. 

Or the fact that two of my favorite actors, Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk are reuniting to make a crowdfunded tv show, Con Man, about their experiences at comic conventions. I didn't even care what the project was going to be. I was in as soon as I saw the two of them producing something together. Their introduction video is so much fun, I would have been happy with just that alone. If you were/are a fan of Firefly, Nathan Fillion or funny things, you should truly take a look at what they are trying to get accomplished. Their goal dollar amount was $425,000. They had 30 days to reach it, They reached it within a matter of hours. As of right this second, they are at $2,019,456.00. Blows my mind! I cannot wait to see the end result.

Now for some personal celebrations...

Two of my very great friends got engaged over the weekend. Join me in wishing my soulmate, Dawn and her fiance, Bill a huge, huge CONGRATULATIONS!! They are quite honestly a match made in heaven and I cannot wait to see them become Mr. and Mrs. Billiam Barker. 

Let's celebrate the fact that my brother Dennis's band Havilland (with Paul, Sam and Chad) will be reuniting this weekend for the first time since 2005, along with their friends, Mother Hubbard. It's going to be a really great time and if you enjoy good music and fun people, you should come on out.
Here's a little sample of their awesomeness:

Let's celebrate the fact that I drove downtown by myself today for the first time ever and drove on the freeway for the first time in years and years and years.

Finally, let's celebrate a huge change coming up in my little world: After ten years and some months of slinging numbers and paying invoices and answering inquiries, I have decided to leave Doner and go back to my roots in the Optical World. This opportunity kind of sprang up out of nowhere and snowballed quickly into this super awesome thing. I'm going to be working with eyeballs again. I'll be with the Henry Ford Opthalmology department and working as a Scribe. I am really excited. And I am positively terrified. There is an overwhelming sense of goodness and all sorts of signs pointing in the direction of making this career change. My family and my friends have been insanely uplifting and inspiring to me these last few weeks. It makes me realize how incredibly lucky I am to have the people in my life that I do. Especially Jeff and Charley. Jeff has calmed me down time after time these past few weeks/days. Putting my mind at ease every single time I come up with a crazy fear or go through a span of doubt. He's my rock and my Fred and I love him with all of my heart.

So please, please wish me lots of luck. I would appreciate any and all forms of encouragement these next few days as my craziness is sure to break through time and time again and I start to freak out about making such a giant change in my life. I appreciate any and all forms of well wishes!!

I hope you all have a lovely St. Patrick's Day!

Wear some green, eat some corned beef, watch some Leap Year and listen to some Gaelic Storm!
