January 17, 2007 - Wicked!

January 17, 2007Wicked!

Kat and I got tickets to see Wicked at the Gershwin, and the best seats and the best time was on Wednesday.  So, I took the train down, and we had dinner at a very nice Cuban restaurant.  Eventually.  After the crazy taxi driver took us around the city, it seems.

But the good news is, I had my very first mojito, and old clothes.  Ok, fine, "old clothes" is the translation of "ropa viejas" which is this awesome shredded steak thing.  Yum.

The musical was fantastic as well - I had no idea they have 'standby's and understudies for a role.  Huh.  And they changed the play from the book somewhat, but it fit well enough. 

I often found myself distracted by the conductor - this is probably because I was in a choir when I was younger.  I kept wondering if when he was directing, if he was modifying the orchestra to the singers (probably true in the case of solos) or if the cast could see his direction.   I never could figure it out.

January 18, 2007 - Library time

January 18, 2007Errand running time!

These were the books, and books on tape I checked out from the library before heading down to North Carolina for Christmas, and they were due TODAY, so off I went.

Also, handy tip for anyone with a car: get a rubbermaid tub, and toss it in the trunk.  It's great for corralling groceries or random shopping packages or anything you don't feel like having slide around your trunk.  And it's so easy to get things in and out of the house to the car or vice versa.
