Shout out to Dustin for being our guest blogger on Friday. He said such nice things about me! Thanks Dustin--your check is in the mail! HA! B and I were both dealing with alot of stuff last week so it was nice to have Dustin fill in. I'm glad he enjoys working with us. Shout out to our latest donors-- Emily and Karen! Thanks so much. Shout out to my bestie JW who lost her grandma this week. My heart is broken! Please keep Jamie and her family in your thought. Thanks.
I want to take a quick minute to congratulate B on completing her first 5K! I'm not sure if you remember B Naj's first post, but she talked about her goals for the year. The three she discussed were: running a 5K, getting a tattoo, and making a movie. I just realized that all three of those things involve pain in one way or another. What a weirdo. HAHA! I think her tat is scheduled for 6/6 and of course we are in the process of making the film, so....well done Bridget. Keep making the rest of us look bad. That's alright. I'm sure she will tell you all about the 5K in her next post. I do know that she did hurt herself once she got home from the race. SMOOTH!
Ok so here is a picture of what I planted to honor Fluffy Najour. The name of this plant is "lamb's ear" and it reminds me of Fluffy because it's soft, exquisite, and fuzzy. The flowers will bloom every May. See--I'm not ALWAYS picking on Bridget! BTW--wasn't her story about Fluffy amazing? If you read it without crying then you have NO SOUL! True story. I think she should read it aloud and we can put it in the special features of the film. I also think Fluffy needs her own soundtrack.
Ok, what else? The next 6 weeks are crazy as hell for me. I have several shows here in Cali, the IOWA show, doc interview, and about a million other things. Here is some information about some of my shows. Y'all should come if you can!
