W Is For...

"Whelmed"

First of all, this dude pretty much encapsulates how I feel right now:

Headdesk

Title of this post comes from one of the best movie quotes ever:

"I know you can be overwhelmed, and I know you can be underwelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?"

"I think you can in Europe."

"10 Things I Hate About You" (a moment of silence please for one of Heath Ledger's sexiest roles) introduced this amazing term which just so perfectly captures how I've been feeling lately.

First of all, being in NYC is whelming in and of itself.  Work?  Bills?  Time for friends and boyfriend?  Money?  Sleep?  Errands?  Grocery Shopping?  Laundry?  Who has time for it all?

Last Monday I had back to back events in the evening.  Tuesday I had a press performance.  Thursday I had an opening night at which two of my photographers got into a fight and then I had a very large man yell at me for attempting to break up said fight.

It made my head hurt.

Sometimes I just think I should leave the city but I imagine I would get bored pretty quickly and then what the heck would I do with my life?

I told you guys I wasn't giving up on the A-Z challenge!  It's just taking me closer to 2 months than 1 is all...

I feel your pain - love your little guy there!
I haven't seen this movie for about... for ever, I'm going to have to dig it out. As for your life - to someone living in rurual Devon- it sounds fab. Great you're persevering with the A-Z - did you know someone dressed as a snail is still crawling the London marathon :)

I dazzled him with my wits.

Is it true he ate a live duck?
Everything except the beak and feet.

Kissing? You think kissing keeps me up to my elbows in placenta? You think I don't know what goes on at these teenage parties? Well I'm jiggy with it. I'm down with the 411. ... My mama didn't raise no fool.

OH!

- I'll leave you to Reginald's quivering member.
- Quivering member. I like that.
