So, Broadway. I love it. Love theatre. Love doing behind the scenes stuff – I was a costume wench in high school. Last night we started watching The Producers and I just didn’t love it. Matthew Broderick was overacting. It seemed too much like a B’way show. Not like Chicago or Rent – they worked in a movie format. Broderick bothered me. Bummer. Oh Ferris.
Just because I was curious to the amount of shows I’ve seen or been involved with…
I’ve worked on versions of Into the Woods, Marvin’s Room, You Can’t Take it with You, Guys and Dolls, Serpent Woman, The Boy Friend, Fiddler on the Roof, Schoolhouse Rock Live!.
I’m a huge theater fan – I’ve seen Grease! (with Ricky Paull Goldin and Rosie O’Donnell (Did you know she Flickrs?)), Cats, Tommy, Rent, Miss Saigon, Smokey Joe’s Cafe, Blue Man Group, Les Mis, Oklahoma!, SideShow, A Chorus Line, Godspell, Jesus Christ Superstar, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, Mamma Mia, Riverdance. Sure, that’s not nearly as many as some people I know. But I am confident in saying my theater appreciation is quiet healthy.
For my birthday this year, we have tickets to see Spamalot!!!! I can’t wait!
THe weather has finally turned so nice! I’m trying to maximize my time outside and in the garden. Also, we’ve got company coming over on Monday. Shocking, but for today weeding and seeding and composting takes priority over knitting. Momentarily. There may be knitting podcasts listened to during the outdoor work, but I really enjoy having those for the car. We shall see. Expect posts to follow on the following topics:
*The Amazing Lace: Meet the teams Introduction (Challenge #1)
*The Broadway Post (Producers, what I’m going to see, what I’ve seen, what I’ve worked on)
*Swap and Pal catch up – (*waves hello to the Knitty Mellow SP! and June Colorswap SP!) I’ve got Q / A to post, and some blog reading to do. And for my tea swap pal (I know you don’t know who you are yet) Your package is going out on Tuesday!
*Pictures – maybe of the dog. maybe of me. maybe of the baby robins that are in a nest outside in my front yard.
*Dog stuff. Bark magazine. Smiling Dogs Rule! Jackson is entered in the Old Navy new mascot contest.
When we have kids, I want to dress them in these:
Especially AB / CD”, atomic symbol and drool monster.
I finished a pair of pedicure socks using yarn from Dani / Sunshine Yarns – I still have a ton left over! More to make. Gotta take a photo and post it. Do these count towards 200sox? or 2000 socks in 2006? I don’t see why not!
Also, started working on Rosalind – I’m using Elsbeth Lavold Silky Wool in Granite and Woad (I think, don’t have the bands right here) – those colors are really close, will the illusion still show?
I’ve also got big plans to knit up CeCe & Cutaway in the near future.
We ended up returning the second dog, as great as he was, it just didn’t work out. Jackson was actually quite unfriendly to the new guy.
