My New Friend Chelsea!

Good Wednesday, Bloggy Friends. Are you having a good one today?? Mine is off to a good start, except for feeling rather sleepy at my work desk.

Enough of that nonsense, let's move on to what's really important...

As I told you before, Alan and I made the two-hour trek to Wilkes-Barre to see Chelsea Handler perform her stand-up routine on Saturday. Wilkes-Barre was a small city, with not a lot going on. The theater she performed in, The Kirby Center for the Performing Arts, however, was immaculate. It was a really classy, beautiful place. We sat down next to another couple, from Lancaster, PA, who turned out to be really awesome. They were both named Ryan and had been together for nearly nine years! Before the show we gabbed and laughed about recent episodes of Chelsea Lately, as well as other current pop culture phenomenons.

Before long the curtain came up on the opening act, Marla Shultz. She was a funny, Italian lady with a dirty mouth! She kind of reminded me of another favorite, Joy Behar. When her schpill was up Chelsea came on stage to a thunderous, Pennsylvanian applause. She looked great and was expectedly hilarious. Her routine was a little different than she is on TV. She didn't talk as much about celebrities, but different experiences she has had in life as a jew, a single woman and a devout masturbator. She was great and I suggest you go see her if she comes to a town near you.

When the show was over I wanted to meet her. Luckily, one of the Ryan's did too and we totally kept coaxing one another until we found the backdoor where she would be exiting. We waited outside for a minute, then her bodyguard came out. We asked if we could meet her and he said yes, as soon as she finished dropping a shadoobie in the backstage bathroom. When that was all over, and she cleaned her peekachoo, her big Escalade pulled up outside and she came strolling out to greet us. Up close she was really so beautiful and tiny. She had her hair pulled back and she smelled like a dream come true. If you can't tell, Bloggy Friends, I have developed a mini-crush! She haggled and cussed with us for a minute, and posed for a few snapshots. She was really nice and really gracious.

Unfortunately, I didn't get any video footage of our meeting, but I do share the pictures and events of the rest of the evening in today's bloggy video.

I love you all and hope you have a great Wednesday. I am feeling more awake already!

Love, Josh

P.S. There is some dirty language in the video, so parents and faint of heart beware!!

So jealous! I can't wait to watch the video tonight. She cracks me up. Glad you had fun.


OH and hammer gel is the same thing as GU, cliff shot block, sports beans, etc, they are made to eat when you are working out. They replace carbs and electrolytes that you lose when you are doing an intense workout. Same concept as gatorade, but liquid carb drinks upset my stomach when working out, so I go the gelly route.

You know you wanted to steal the Baby Jesus out of that manger scene!

Thank you for the mini-Christmas carol moment in the car. I can't wait for my first Christmas with Josh & Alan.

I always said "Wilkes bahr-ruh" but, you know, am I the mayor?

Loving YOU that you got your photo taken with her!!!! I'll have to see her on YouTube.

I'm more surprised when I hear you saw a celebrity's show & you DIDNT get to meet them. You have such a knack for doing that...I love it.

Frosty the Snowman was really cute...but I'm with Alan... I dont know those words!
