"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't slow down and look around, you might miss it"

I have been binge eating today. Why? Well. its one of those days you know. You name it... I ate it. I get like that about... once a month. Which is ok. Its the day I visit the bakery and buy a massive piece of cake... big chocolate chip cookie... etc. I ate a pack of M&M's earlier also. Crazy. At least I had a salad for lunch. Maybe I'll boil veges for dinner. Except I'm making pasta for my husband. So bets are on that I eat 2 servings of pasta. Oh, and then there was the In'n'Out burger I ate at midnight yesterday... watch this space. It sounds bad. I know it. But it isn't really. I'm pretty good for the other 30 days of the month... Details you all wanted to know? "You know it". (thats my new American expression).

So. I know what you're wondering... you're thinking all "what was she doing at In'n'Out at midnight?

The question isn't what WAS I doing there... but what WASN'T I doing there...
How many of you know what I'm referencing? Its my favourite way to flip a question. But I get so bummed out because it passes over people's heads most of the time. When, IMO its from one of the all time funniest movies ever made.

Speaking of which... my husband hasn't seen "Groundhog Day" - another absolute classic. I love that movie. It kills me. I'm wanting to watch a Bill Murray movie real bad. Its been a while, you know.

So. Back to my question about In'n'Out... last night some mates and I went to see a filming of the show "Big Bang Theory". The MC was horribly annoying. But the show was fantastic. We got in straight away this time and got to see the cast in person. I have developed quite the celebrity crush on Sheldon aka Jim Parsons since seeing him in person. He's a real character full of expression. He was super friendly to the audience and did weird, quirky things... like doing a star jump when they finished filming at about 11pm. I think in real life he and Penny are dating. They were all over each other. Drats.

At one point in the evening the MC called for all the foreigners to come up. There were about 10 of us. He asked us to each sing a song from our homeland. I sang...

G'day G'day... and how're ya going... (THAT song). It was all I could think of impromptu.

The annoying MC said I was very musical (!!) and actually let me sing the whole way through. I wonder if Jim Parsons heard that... ;)

After the filming we headed over to In'n'Out for burgers. It was kinda neat eating burgers at midnight in LA on a Tuesday. Except going to work sucked this morning. So tired.


ps. i want a pair of Superfine jeans real bad.

I had a In n'Out burger once in 1997, the famous one with the fried egg in it. My first trip to LA.

Man, was it ever good.

*sighs fondly*

I can't believe your husband has never seen Groundhog Day. Honestly that's just wrong. Didn't you screen him before you picked him up? ;-)

"Can I have one of these with some booze in it please?"

Hmm.. you know how I feel about the great Bill Murray. Yes that movie is a must-see alright! And In n Out is a great fast food place. I hope it comes to Australia one day!!!

Miss R.

Tell me more about Sheldon?!! And this show. We don't get it in Australia!

Thank you all for your comments!

Well. Husband redeemed himself by being a massive Better Off Dead fan. He loves that movie more than anything... along with Three Amigos and The Goonies. Strike 3 and your out... well, not having watched Groundhog day - it was a strike thats for sure... :)

Yes. In'n'Out IS fantastic eh?! I haven't been in about 6 months. We have one just down the road from us. I'm not a big burger fan. But get a hankering for one every 6 months or so... Although I always skip fries. Weirdly enough, I've always hated anything fried.

The sportos, the motorheads, geeks, sluts, bloods, waistoids, dweebies, dickheads - they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude.
