So here’s the thing…

January 14th, 2007

It is not uncommon for my friends to have to wait for me. My parents, my doctor, my dentist, my guild, people behind me in line at Safeway or on an airplane, you name it… all have had the unfortunate opportunity of having to wait for me. So here’s the thing… I took this photo of DS and Kathy Griffin last night at about 8:10pm. Kathy’s show was supposed to start at 8:00pm. So to all the nice people in the sold out and packed Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall last night… I’m really sorry you had to wait for Kathy because of me DS and I got to go backstage to meet Kathy and you didn’t! Ok, so I’m kinda sorry you didn’t get to meet her too… because she’s so sweet, friendly, gracious and warm IRL. HUGE thanks to my cousin Bobby for hooking us up!

Kathy’s show was so funny and she really is a comic genius. But the funniest thing happened when she spotted the sign language interpreter signing some of her colorful language… which ended up being a show in itself. Kathy started feeding the interpreter all kinds of deliciously bad and naughty words and phrases. If you know me IRL… you’ll know that I’ve increased my wordpower to a new level! Watch my hands friends… watch my hands!

And speaking of the Arlene Schnitzer Concert Hall… While EVERYONE is so friendly who works at The Schnitz (actually, ALL of Portland is sooo friendly), there is this one lady usher who just shines and oozes kindness and joy. This usher is Phyllis and she’s got a smile and grace that just warms your soul. We’ve been seated by her a few times now and last night I told her how wonderful I thought she was. Phyllis is warm apple pie served on the very best china. I told her I was going to blog about her… so here it is Phyllis!

Because I’m so obsessed with our snowfall last Wednesday night… I of course have more to show! This was this morning on Hwy. 30 heading west into Astoria. Photos can’t convey the enchanting and breathtaking beauty of this winter wonderland. If you’re inland missing your now melted snow… head on over to Astoria for a magical treat! Some of the trees looked like lace or that they were spayed with marshmallow fluff. Beautiful. Breathtaking. Enchanting.

    Oh my! If I didn’t have to finish quilting two quilts tomorrow I just might take you up on that. Our son in law went from Newberg to Long Beach WA last Thursday and home yesterday, so I know he got to see your beautiful snowy scenery!

  2. The fabulous The Chicken Lady allegedly said:

    Oh, it’s GORGEOUS!! It’s finally starting to snow here, we’re SUPPOSED to get 6-8 inches tonight…I’ll let you know tomorrow…keeping my fingers and toes crossed.
    DS looks so darn grown up. What a handsome kiddo.

  3. The fabulous blop allegedly said:

    Your photos are georgous, too, but I am really so ready for it to be done! Where are the warm rains??

    We should meet up for coffee soon. Why don’t we head for a coffee shop, that way there is no stress??? Maybe can talk Paula into coming out as well!

  6. The fabulous Raesha D allegedly said:

    The snow is beautiful!!!! We’ve been rumored to get more in Albuquerque, but none has arrived in town so far. I’m so glad the show was awesome!! She is SO funny and seems like such a down to earth person. Your DS is cute the cutie!!!

  7. The fabulous Happy Zombie allegedly said:

    Cindy… I saw on the weather map your neck of the woods was white. Is it a winter wonderland yet?

    Wende… YES! Coffee soon!

    Reesha I hope you get your snow! Our thrill is ending on the coast. It’s snowing in Portland/Vancouver (lucky Patti)… we are having rain. :-(

  8. The fabulous Angelina allegedly said:

    Those pictures of the snow are gorgeous! Don’t worry, you might get more snow like that.

    I like Kathy Griffin too. But does your cousin know her? I’ve never been back stage anywhere. It seems like it must have been so much fun!

  9. The fabulous Bitterbetty allegedly said:

    ooooh.. Cute boy!!!!!!!

    Isn’t great to meet someone you like and have them be super cool IRL? Joe Strummer from the Clash was my fave IRL celeb.

    And how I looove looking at the snow pics..


  10. The fabulous Paula allegedly said:

    So that was you holding up the line in Safeway, huh?! What a fun night you had! I just love going to concerts and shows and how much fun and better to go back stage ~ you lucky dogs, you!!

Farting around with needle & thread and then blogging about it.
