Every year, the Nemo
girls (a.k.a. shemo) try to outdo the boys at our holiday party. This year we decided to make a calendar featuring our careers post-Nemo. I posed as a nurse since I’d require a profession that allowed me to wear red + white and lots of crosses! Thanks to the Studio Nemo girls for pulling off such an awesome shoot!
This week has been very atypical; I was out six nights straight at a wide range of events (see below!) that left me with very little home office time. Sure, I had fun, but now it’s time to play some major catch-up!
I haven’t legitimately been to the zoo in about 10 years, so when my dad offered to take me this weekend, I was pretty excited. We had a blast (and the animals didn’t seem to mind my marbled jeans and impractical footwear). Favorite animals that day: mountain goats!
While I was at the zoo, my brother called me and asked if I wanted to go to Nine Inch Nails with him. HELL YES! We met up with the Dandy Warhol’s manager at will-call and he graciously gave us not only general admission tickets, but backstage passes!
On a side note, totally unplanned, as I was walking towards him, I realized that we were both wearing WHITE JEANS. What a faux pas! I should have known better; this kind of stuff ALWAYS HAPPENS. Siamese twins?
I hadn’t been to a general admission arena concert since Marilyn Manson 10 years ago (where we both felt like we were gonna die from the crush of the audience), but luckily, the crowd was well-behaved and Trent sounded amazing. The light show was equally amazing.
Boy, does Nemo know how to throw a party! Our festivities at the Doug Fir included an appearance by some distinguished gentlemen in Boy Scouts uniforms with tiny green shorts (oh, those were the owners), a Journey song request (oh, that was me), an open bar (can we blame our rowdiness on it?), a magical lit up floor that always tempts me to do moves from the Billie Jean video, an amazingly tasty catered dinner (those mashed potatoes!!!), and best of all, good times with good friends.
That magical glow wins me over every time!
At some point, a Nemo-ite found a box of black super balls that had been stashed away and we went a little crazy bouncing them around the office. After one landed in a coworker’s coffee mug and another hit a few computer monitors, we decided that enough was enough. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted!
How was your week?
