CATS

My roomie was in town last weekend on business, so I had the brilliant idea to go see the musical CATS. I now feel like it is my responsibility to stop people from going. It was awful, and how in the world that beautiful song "Memories" is in it is beyond me. I commented out loud to Gindi that the worst part of the musical is this word they keep using "jellicle". So there's my warning to avoid CATS. Go see "Les Mis" or "Wicked" instead.

Now the fun part of the night was being giggly with my roomie from college!!! For those of you who know Gindi, you know she is WAY more proper than I am (being a prestigious lawyer and all). Outside the theater there were 2 "cats" that everyone could get their picture taken with. When Gindi flatly denied my request to get our picture taken with them, I kept trying to get their picture. Unfortunately, person after person kept stepping in, and I didn't want a picture of total strangers (except the cats of course). I was about to give in and let G take one of just me with the cats (I was in a particularly silly mood) when my hero "Troy" stepped in...

"Why don't I take a picture of both of you with the CATS?"

I don't know if he had heard all our banter or not, but he saved the day! I gave him my camera quickly, and G had no option but to acquiesce. But as you can see by the picture, she wasn't happy about it...


Because the musical was not the theatrical experience we were hoping for, we got a little loopy during intermission. I even pulled the whole "stick my arm out straight and take an unfocused picture of ourselves" bit. We kind of look like we belong back in college, don't we?


And I even caught her doing this. Some day when she is running for office, these pictures will resurface I'm sure.


And we got one normal picture before the night was over. We have known each other for 17 years! I'm so glad she's my friend.

Roomie!!!!! What a totally fun blog - even with those ridiculous photos of me up :) I had such fun! Leave it to you to make me abandon the "proper" for the weekend!
