Spring Awakening

Last night I had the pleasure of watching the opening of the national tour of Spring Awakening. A nice person I've never met from Facebook gave me the tickets. Thank you nice stranger!

I love plays and musicals but it's been ages since I've had the chance to go to one. I'd heard of Spring Awakening, I know Lea Michelle originated the female lead opposite Jonathan Groff, and I knew it was about teenagers and sex.

I didn't know our seats were going to be in the very first row. I didn't know the band would be onstage so we'd be able to literally touch the actors if we wanted to. I didn't know we'd be able to see every speck of spit that flew from every mouth...I don't mind that passion but it was distracting because some of them spat quite a bit. The songs are really rockin'. I also didn't know there would be partial nudity onstage. I knew there would be implied sex, but there was some actual boob going into an actual mouth up there-wo!! Guess I'm a prude because I think they could have gotten the point across w/out going that far...but that's just me. I would still go back and see it again if I could! It is a really great show and each performer is awesome. They all have amazing voices.

beverly hills friday

here's some random thoughts about the show last night....

No idea how people put up with Camille and her constant weird-flirty-sexual-innuendo crap she does with any male. She kisses another woman's husband on the lips...while the wife is right there? It's just too weird.

Paul is very brave to push Adrienne in the pool like that. I would not want to be on Adrienne's bad side, that's for sure! She seems like she'd take her time getting you back and she'd be really good at it.

Like alot of people I don't buy Cedric's sad childhood story. Something just doesn't add up there...could be why he is now no longer on speaking terms with Lisa?

Taylor-how SAD was that shot of her standing there with her cake waiting for the car???? I have a hard time feeling bad for her because she chose who to marry...but it's not like people can't make mistakes. I know I've made more than my share-so maybe she thought Russell would warm up after a few years of marriage and now she's seeing that's not gonna happen. She seems to have her own sh*t together so I hope she's not staying with him so she can keep throwing $60k bday parties.

Kyle's party looked so fun. Her family is so gorgeous. When they were all taking pictures in front of that damask backdrop-beautiful. I want to steal that idea btw.

I really like the dresses Adrienne wore to each party. The purple was pretty and the white & gold was hot! She definitely has her own style in clothing and I just love that.

I did not know you could have Fatburger at your house! Taylor can eat a double with no problem...Russell needs to mind what he's got a little better.

Loved seeing everyone boogie. Adrienne's a good dancer. Kim and Kyle both swing their ponytails when they dance...I wonder if that's how you can tell their drunk? For instance I start calling everyone "baby" when I get drunk. If I call you that, you should take away my keys.

Happy New Year

It's 2011! Of course I just typed 2010, for some reason when I go to type 2011 my fingers are trained to do 2010. 2011 sounds so futuristic. I think I probably said that last year too. I'll probably say it next year. Next year is the dreaded 2012 (just typed 2010 again). People think 2012 is the end of the world. Or some big spiritual awakening is going to happen in 2012. Twelve is my lucky number so I think it'll be a great year :)

2011 is going to be pretty good too, I think. I have two birthday parties to plan for my March babies. I get to see what it's like to have kids with birthdays at the beginning and end of the same month. Should be interesting to say the least.

As far as resolutions I never really make any. Some things I would like to make happen this year are increasing my scrapbooking biz and meeting friends I've known since 2006 but have never met in person. PW ladies I'm talking about you!

Oh yeah, on New Year's Eve we had a little party at the house. There were two guests besides us and that was just dandy. Here are some pics :) Happy New Year!
