Happiness is...

Today I am happy. Only one person on the planet will understand that joke and she probably doesn't read this blog. I regret nothing.

Every once in a while I obtain a caffeine high so big that I can barely control myself. It feels almost as if I could jump out of my own skin. Every once in a while this comes out as a weird dance move or just a strange move in general. During these moments I just hope no one is around  because it's almost as if I have tourette syndrome; uncontrollable. In honor of this day I will place a few pictures of things that make me happy.
Gilmore Girls
Classic Film 


Making Art
Broadway Shows
All Chips and Dips
Coffee and Tea
Collecting Coffee Mugs

That's all I can think of for the moment. What makes you happy?

Sutton Foster or Patti Lupone? Both.

"Broadway has been very good to me. But then, I've been very good to broadway."Ethel Merman



When I was 18 years old I went to my first Broadway show, the original broadway production of Mamma Mia. At the time Tina Maddigan was the lead and at the time I thought it was the greatest thing I had ever seen. Truthfully, I still have a special spot for that show and also for the lead. I don't know if this is true for everyone, but I don't see how anyone can truly forget their first show. My actual first show was watching Nutcracker in downtown Jacksonville. My teacher told me to watch for the tree and as it rose from it's spot it was spectacular. This means you will never forget your first show and you will never forget your first broadway spectacular. 



For those of you who liked the movie Mamma Mia (entire city of London), I thought it sucked. 


When I was 19 and I moved to New York, I was officially obsessed with going to the theatre. Usually, I only went to see cele…

Dear White People. Dear Humans. Another skinny white girl talking about racism in America...

Dear fellow white people: please stop using the reference "All Lives Matter". Also stop using the reference "white privilege". One is a defensive action, the other is white guilt trying to force white guilt. Both assume that you understand what it means to be a black citizen in this country. Both are responses to white guilt. I do not know the struggle, and I am not guilty just because I was born white. I've done nothing wrong, I will not apologize for something I had no control over. White privilege was never something I experienced, especially while I grew up in trailer parks...with other poor white people.

How about instead of indignation, we just all support the cause of Black Lives Matter? This will be your way of showing that all lives matter without saying it. When there is a peaceful protest, maybe you should join. There should be blacks, whites, cops, hispanics, everyone joining together. We don't have to be on any one side other than justice. Any p…

Mildred Pierce: Joan vs. Kate

Mildred Pierce was a book written in 1941. A book that was also made in to two separate movies. One in 1945 starring Joan Crawford and the other in 2011 starring Kate Winslet.


Just recently I have watched both films, mostly because I was tired of hearing how amazing Joan Crawford was and how Kate Winslet's version would never come close. After having watched both, I realize what I knew before, these people are really stupid. People who say this without proper knowledge of having seen Kate Winslet are just saying this because you must assume the older version is always better. They are making the assumption Kate Winslet can never compare to Joan Crawford because, well, because it is Joan Crawford and she won an Oscar for this role. I haven't seen any of the other movies that were performances of that category in 1945, but she does seem to have deserved it. 
I love both performances and I loved both film versions. I still like Kate Winslet's version as a whole. These are the…
