Taking Over The Net

Hey all you Glesbians!

Thought there was enough Glennis to last a lifetime on the old web? Well you were wrong! We were able to stuff a few more tasty morsels in there and still have room for all that sheep porn you so love and need.

First up...

Check out the documentary that was done on I Eat Pandas. If you know me, and I think you do, I am a huge fan of documentaries. I live for the moment a new doc appears on iTunes or Showtimes/HBO On Demand. (Well, that and a perfectly cooked french fry.) True, ours is only about 4-minutes long, but a documentary it is, still! I was unsure of how it would turn out and, even though they showcased a lot of Eliza at her stupid day job (that has little to do with our creative process), I think it turned out pretty spectacularly.


I Eat Pandas' promos for The Tudors on Showtime are live! If I haven't written about this before, we were hired to write and star in promos for their steamy hit show. The first two seasons are up and we'll have a new one for each episode of Season 3. Woo hoo! www.poptudors.com

In other Glennis news - I just returned from Rhode Island where we helped welcome our new nephew James Michael McCarthy into the world! He is, if I do say so myself, the most perfect little baby I've ever seen in my life. It was especially exciting for me because I really feel like I'm a part of the McCarthy family so it was sort of like the first baby in my family, too. I just couldn't stop staring at his perfect little face. Good job, guys!

And in not so good news - we have bed bugs. Yep. That's what nights performing in dingy clubs throughout NY will do to you. I thought the bites I was getting were spider bites, but after reading more into it I had to accept the truth. Bed bugs again. I had them about 4 or 5 years ago and they were easy enough to get rid of. I'm hoping we caught them early enough that, with some consistency, we'll be able to eradicate them in our household for good!

If all else fails we'll just move. But seriously, we're looking to buy a place. If anyone has leads on a hot piece of ass, let me know.

Hope you're having a wonderful week, dear readers. Stay bed bug-free, please.

Stress Buster

If you look up "stress" in the dictionary there is probably a picture of me beside it. I am a tightly-wound, nail-biting, teeth-gnashing, shoulder-scrunching ball of stress. I've had shingles (adult chicken pox - very painful! Very rare in people my age.) and burst a blood vessel in my eye while singing on stage (and kept performing! you know this. you read my blog.).

Tomorrow I'm driving to Ohio with my sister and our friend a RN, Corrine, to pick up my 64-year-old father with Alzheimer's to bring him to a nursing home in Long Island.

You can imagine my level of stress today!! It's not just the drive or the fact that my father is now incontinent (thank god for Corrine!), it's that I haven't seen him in a while and my real fear/stress is that he won't remember me.

And so I'm trying to think of and do things that relieve that stress so it doesn't build up and cause my legs to be sucked up into my butthole. Here's what I've come up with so far:

1. Drinking contest
2. Eating contest
3. Judging a contest for baby ducks, kittens or turtles (wearing clothes!)
4. Sit next to a fat, sleeping man on the train - zone out to the sounds of his heavy breathing
5. Call my old landlord to tell her what a cunt she is
6. Laugh (at the less fortunate)
7. Remodel my kitchen using a sledgehammer and chainsaw
8. Getting high contest
9. Get hit by a bus, go into coma, wake up rested
10. Punch a hole in something (I'm looking at you, door)

In reality I'll probably just curl up and watch the DVD of Pinnochio my sweetie just brought home for me.

Wish (upon a star) me luck tomorrow. I'll be letting the GPS be my guide to a stress-free trip.

L.A. Girls

My ladies - I just bought L.A. Girl Flare nail polish in neon pink for $5 from Urban Outfitters and it dries in about 30-seconds. It doesn't LAST that long, unfortunately, but when the touch-ups take less than a minute, who cares!

And speaking of LA Girls... I Eat Pandas is heading back to LA for more madcap fun Arpil 6-10! We have a show at Comedy Central Stages on April 7th at 8pm. And the best part - the show is free!! Good lookin' out, Pandas.

And that's all for now.

I Lied

I couldn't even make it a year before I came running back to you, half-naked, wild eyed eating chicken, dear blog! I missed you. Let's never break up again.
