Dorian : 1 year!

Holy crap! Has it really been a year since Dorian's become a part of our home? For a refresher and trip down memory lane,  here is his introduction post. Dorian has really integrated into our little household quite nicely.

It was a bit daunting at first because Mona was very used to being the only cat. If you look at them now (or follow my Instagram) you'd see how much they love each other. They chase each other down the hallway, wrestle, sit in the sun right next to one another, and sometimes eat at the same time from the same bowl. 

Dorian loves to cuddle and usually is always trying to get onto one of our laps. If I'm on my computer, he's usually on my chest in between me and the laptop. If Ryan is on the couch or in his chair playing FIFA, Dorian is right there with him. He still has a weird obsession with iPads and we can't keep them laying out because he will walk all over it as if it's on! I think it may be the reflections in the glass when it's off that attract him, but of course when it's on he wants to swipe at the screen.

He also likes to lay in between us on top of the comforter in bed. He'll usually walk on top of us few times a night but we've gotten used to it. When Ryan leaves for work and I don't have to get up right away, both Dorian and Mona will get in bed with me. 

Dorian is a very vocal cat and will meow on his own or in response to us talking to him. He loves eating catnip so we've made a point to grow the fresh stuff in the window from a hanging pot. He loves his cat tree (which is good because Mona rarely goes on it) and sleeps on the top tier. He loves to run and jump and pounce on things. He loves treats and will eat Mona's if she is not quick enough. 

He's a good cat and I am so glad we took a risk and adopted him. He's the last one, though. Two cats at a time are plenty!

Above is one of the first photos I've taken of him. When comparing to a recent photo, you can tell he was much smaller as his features are a tad different/baby-like.

I've posted this photo (above) recently but I love it so much. His features have become much more angular and exotic in a year's time. 

Events : Tim and Eric & Dr. Steve Brule Tour 2014.

I'll start off by saying that this was, probably, the greatest show I'll ever see. Seriously. I'm just a huge fan of these guys and they did not disappoint. 

We decided to get a rental car since we'd be driving the distance from Columbus to Pittsburgh. We left Friday morning and took our time getting there since the show was at 7. It actually didn't start until 8:15ish.

We drank a ton of coffee in the car and stopped at Tom's Ice Cream Bowl for lunch in Zanesville, Ohio.

After checking into our hotel (Renaissance Pittsburgh), we used Uber to get a ride to the Carnegie Music Hall. Their tour bus was outside and that's when things got real exciting.

Here's a few pictures I shot at the music hall (they are clickable images) I just loved that dinosaur :

And now, onto everything Tim and Eric & Dr. Steve Brule!

We had a few drinks, bought merch (more about that later) and got to our seats. We were in the second row, and I had the aisle seat. WE WERE RIGHT THERE and saw everything. DJ Douggpound started the show.

After a short video about how Tim and Eric are changing the face of comedy, they appear and dance and sing for us. They wore shiny shirts and were full of energy. They performed many sketches, with many costume changes, and never broke character. Really impressive.

And then, Dr. Steve Brule took the stage. In case anyone can't tell, it's John C. Rielly. He maintained this character for a good hour and a half. He was incredibly funny. He did his act in the format of Check It Out! and brought people up on stage.

Towards the end of the show, Jan and Wayne Skylar came out and everyone was cheering. They were by far the best and most anticipated characters to show up on stage. (This image is clickable.)

There was also a glorious wedding between Jan and Dr. Brule. But, being the bitch that she is, Jan called the wedding off once Wayne regained the strength in his lower extremities. Tim Heidecker was ON POINT with being Jan that night. He was dancing and flipping his gown around. I was dying.

Lastly, I did get some merch before sitting down for the show. I was going to get a t-shirt but ended up getting a poster (really great quality) and a greeting card with Dr. Brule.

Their comedy isn't for everyone but I just love it and cannot get enough of it. I laughed the entire show, from beginning to end, and really appreciate what these guys do.
