When Opportunity Knocks...

I've been reading a little self-help literature lately, and my most recent book told me that I should give myself permission to do something frivolous and not worry about it.

Therefore, as a gift to myself and a boon to my always questionable mental health, I made the bold step of ordering three tickets to go see PEE WEE HERMAN, live on stage!

I've invited two dear friends to accompany me, and come November, I'll be traveling to Hollywood to see this beloved kitsch icon! I can't wait. I wrote a whole other super-serious post about Pee Wee and television and youth and creepy adult stuff, but it got too big and intense for such a joyous occasion, so for now I'll just say that I heart Pee Wee and his Playhouse and I am SO excited to take a little trip.

Here's a clip I remember well. Ice cream soup!

That's hilarious! We found out about it randomly online the night before the tickets went on sale and knew it was meant to be. My silly husband was so excited that he has already reserved our hotel and has stared at the seating arrangement on the computer for long periods of time waiting for the moment to see Pee Wee in the flesh. What day are you going? I think we're going on a Friday so I figured I could just take one day off of work - My boss has to understand, it's Pee Wee!

Oh by the way, I saw you at Renegade in San Fran and that's how I found your blog. I was a vendor too. Your stuff is super adorable!
