Limited Too Tuesdays

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Last night I got the chance to host a screening for Comedy Central's newest series, Broad City produced by the one and only Amy Poehler. The premier took place at iO and it was pretty much a packed house with a lot of laughter going on. The show is absolutely hilarious and it's going to be on Comedy Central right after Workaholics on Wednesday nights so I'd recommend watching it if you like to be happy.


Because Johnny Carson has always been my idol, (he grew up literally four blocks from where I did, just during different time periods unfortunately) I wanted to make certain I did my hosting duties justice last night. I envisioned myself warming up the audience and making everyone laugh and coo with my amazing jokes and wonderful on-stage voice. However if you've seen me in person lately you know that right now my voice sounds like a sixty-year-old woman who's been smoking menthols since the womb. I seem to have caught that nasty cold that's going around. So my debut hosting gig didn't go as planned. At one point my voice just completely cracked and I had to make a joke about "being sentimental" about the show. The audience just stared at me like "give us our free shirts already." And so I did.

*Here's a photo of some of the winners and their shirts. Free shirts are great no matter who you are.

And now because blog post ideas tend to get a little scarce in the winter (for me anyway) today I'm going to play around with a new segment called Limited Too Tuesdays- What I Was Up To In the Late 90s/Early 2000s. When I posted my resolutions from 1999 a few weeks ago several of you asked to see more and there doesn't seem like a better time than now. Mostly because I'm running low on ideas today. Ask and you shall receive, here it is!

The date reads 12/23/95 (in pink gel pen of course.)

I weathered a lot of "storms" in the 90s and this diary tells the tales of all of them. And so I present to you... Limited Too Tuesdays.


Today's selected diary entries reflect the importance of learning about winning and losing.

I "vowled" out in basketball way too much.

Unfortunately five years later in 2001 my competitive nature had only increased with time. Some would go so far as to call me "out of control" even, I just called it "having fun."

I'm not so sure I agree with my language, but my diary was my free place so I didn't hold back obviously. Don't be a prick and judge me okay? Prick. I think I need to work that word back into my vocab. Thirteen-year-old me used such cool adult swear words.

Next week we're going to cover a topic I call "Middle School Mean Girls." I didn't think I was a mean girl when I was younger, but this diary would prove otherwise.

  2. Your diary throwbacks are pure gold :-) All I wanted every Christmas was Limited Too sweatshirts....looking back weren't they the most unflattering things ever? I had a navy one with the plaid logo across the front and would match plaid leggings with it......I cringe thinking about it now

  6. I love this. I have a lot of the "there's more to say but I'm too tired" lines in my old diaries too!

  7. These crack me up, I threw all my middle school diaries away mainly because I wrote about when people made me mad or who I wasn't talking to that week. Oh the absurdity!

  9. Nothing makes me feel cool like going back and retreading my old diary entries. I'm glad I'm not the only one who was a little dramatic.

  10. I just want to say that the Limited Too was my first job ever. I loved their shirts that had gymnasts on them. The one's that said "Gymnastics is Life." ....Ooooh boy!

  21. Haha these are great! I don't know what I would find in my old diaries, especially middle school, I don't think I could handle reading all that drama.

  22. Love finding old diary entries. When we were moving my mom out of my childhood house I found my 6th grade diary from 94...when it was cool to document every.single.Christmas present you asked for and received, because it was about quantity not quality back then. You know you had a great Christmas when Mariah Carey MTV Unplugged, Lion King soundtrack and Here Comes the Hotstepper cassette tape were a few of your presents!

  23. Lawwwwwd. I miss Limited Too. Does it even exist anymore? The one I frequented got turned into a Justice. :( I should pull out my old diaries, but I don't think I ever knew Limited Too sold such treasures.

  24. Hilarious!! I hate to loose :) Please keep doing this! I wish I had kept a diary when I was younger to see all of these gems!

  25. haha oh my I love this! I need to find my old diary now!

  26. Oh, dear ... it's so weird and funny to go back and read journals from the past, when we THOUGHT WE KNEW EVERYTHING, but clearly, we did not. Our poor parents. How did they not laugh at just about every dramatic thing that happened to us? I give them major points for just keeping a straight face most of the time. :)
