Five Things I'm Excited About Right Now

Thursday, February 27, 2014

The director and the camera crew are set to arrive at my house in less than three hours. Yesterday I was a mad woman trying to clean the carpets and clean the walls and all of that other annoying stuff I never get around to doing. I'm not a dirty person by any means, but unfortunately Harlow is. This winter has been tough on our coke princess white carpet to say the least. Then I started looking around rooms thinking hmm what should I add in here in attempt to make my life look cooler and more put together?

And don't even get me started on my outfit selection. I bought like five new shirts (left the tags on all of them obviously) in attempt to figure out my on camera style. But the problem is I don't know my off camera style. I'm usually all over the place with what I wear, one day I'm looking like a hipster and the next day I'm as preppy as can be. And then all of the other days I'm in sweats and Second City attire because I'm just a loser like that.

In true Taylor form, I got too lazy to change anything about my house, and I'm just going to wear something I've had in my closet for ages- probably skinny jeans, a plain grey tee, and a loose sweater or denim shirt over top. It's just how I roll.

Now because my mind is all over the place at the moment I'm just going to turn this post into one of those annoying
"Five Things" type of segments. Let's call this Five Things I'm Excited About Right Now. Original, I know.

#1. Last night was my last level five class at iO. I have only eight more weeks in level 5B and then I graduate iO! I'm not excited about that however, I don't want to leave iO. What I'm excited about are all of the amazingly funny and wonderful people I've met in my classes from the past year. Give it up for this funny crew, you'll probably be seeing some of their faces on SNL or sitcoms someday.


#2. My parents and Jade and Lola are coming to town tomorrow! Bloody Marys and pacifiers all around! Chris and I have called this month "Family February" because we have been with one of our families literally every single weekend for the past four weeks! Seriously. It's a good thing we like each other's families or this month might be called "sorry but we have to break up February."


#3. I booked Zanies! Zanies is an awesome comedy club here in Chicago and I get to be a part of their female funnies segment coming up here in a few months.

#4. I got new return address labels in the mail from March of Dimes and they don't say "Mr. Taylor Wolfe" this time. #blessed

#5. My new clean carpet. I shouldn't say "new" because it's far from it, but it is freshly clean now. More snow is expected to roll through Chicago this weekend so if all goes according to Harlow's plan, it will be trashed again by Monday.

And I guess I'm kind of excited to film a pilot today and for my set at Laugh Factory tomorrow. Even as I type Laugh Factory tomorrow my stomach is turning and my hands are getting clammy. I don't know why I get jollies off of torturing myself with anxiety but I do...  Now it's time to go put on a face full of makeup. I splurged and bought some foundation not from Target so I'm going to be pissed if I apply it and still look like me.

The weekend is almost here. Thanks for reading and thanks for all of the kind comments coming my way about all of my random shenanigans. The good vibes you are sending are being felt. Now if someone could just send me some Xanex I'd be golden...

  3. Get after it, girl! You'll do great!

    re: the Xanax - have you seen any of the Beverly Hills Housewives episodes? If not, Google that ish before the camera crew rolls in and be thankful for that very important last minute anti-prescription drug PSA.

  5. you're doing big things and i'm so excited for you! just living in chicago makes you "so cool" in my eyes, but the fact that you're 1. doing comedy shows 2. reality shows 3. taking improv classes from all the greats and 4. LIVING YOUR DREAM makes you the shit.

  6. Definitely sending positive vibes your way today and tomorrow!! I know you are going to be fantastic!! And I'd call this a definite win: "#4. I got new return address labels in the mail from March of Dimes and they don't say "Mr. Taylor Wolfe" this time. #blessed" LOL!!

  7. Here's hoping the foundation makes you look like someone totally different! If it does…tell me the name of it. I've been wanting to try out a new identity for ages.

    Don't bother with the Xanax. I had 2 before I had to have surgery and it didn't make one bit of difference.

    I'm excited for you! You're going to be brilliant…but like I warned you before, don't step near Harlow's spotlight or a dirty carpet will be the least of your worries : )

  8. I hope it gets picked up, I would love to be watching TV and say HEY, I RECOGNIZE HER. :) The fact that you're doing comedy is really cool to me. I'm sure you'll be back to tell us 1) if the foundation made you look not like you (I think you is a good look for you)(too many you's I think made that sound weird) 2) what happened during filming! GOOD LUCK!

  18. Good luck! I'm really relying on you to kill this thing and up the reality show game for all of us. I'm sort of over watching The Bachelor and Dance Moms every Tuesday. It gets old, ya know?

  21. This is so exciting! Hope it all goes well! (PS I love how the description of what you'll probably wear was exactly the same as the picture of you in your sidebar... or was that deliberate and I'm totally missing the point? :P )

  22. "I'm just going to wear something I've had in my closet for ages- probably skinny jeans, a plain grey tee, and a loose sweater or denim shirt over top. It's just how I roll."

    The best part about the outfit you described is that it is literally what you're wearing in your side picture.

  23. Oh and good luck on your set tomorrow! You're going to be great.
