Defying Gravity in the Midweek Musical Open Thread

I have to confess to being a terrible theatre nerd here – I’ve never seen (or even listened to the soundtrack of) Wicked. I do, however, love Kristen Chenowith and Idina Menzel, so I really need to get on this.

Tell me about your Wednesdays, loves. I’m snowed in and bored!

She once read large swaths of "Why Evolution is True" and a geology book aloud to her infant daughter, in the hopes of a) instilling a love of science in her from a very young age and b) boring her to sleep. After escaping the wilds of Waco, Texas and spending the next decade in NYC, she currently lives in upstate New York, where she misses being able to get decent pizza and Chinese takeout delivered to her house. She lost on Jeopardy.

I’m staying up past my bed time tonight to watch My Drunk Kitchen and look for a new apartment. Now all I want to do is drink and cook and play with friends. Damn you finals on Friday! I do not want to feel guilty or fail, but I give no fucks right now. T minus 40 hours until freedom and home time.

I feel like I’ve been in an unproductive funk for the past four months and just cannot get out of it. Every time I plan to get stuff done (writing, cleaning my apartment, going grocery shopping, etc) I inevitably find myself going, “I’m too cold to live. I’ll just bundle up and take a nap instead”.

Cut to me not having written anything since November, a dirty apartment, and an empty fridge.
