YOU LIKE ME, YOU REALLY LIKE ME

OK Well I got a few slaps on the wrist for the complete tease of a post last time.

I thought that I could do better with keeping the updates coming, especially since for my birthday months and months ago, I got a brand new Mac something or rather. It has a massive screen. We are not talking just a big screen, this thing is HUUUUUUUUGE.

Way to big to sit and look directly into the screen without going blind within five minutes. To solve this problem I have the Mac up on the dining table, longways. The screen is 3 seats down the table and I will be blind by time I finish writing this post. Hope it was worth it.

So what else has been going on?

Well, we are selling the farm and moving to Sydney.

A few weeks ago I saw Caroline O'Connor in concert and the past Monday I got to see the legendary Chita Rivera.

You may or may not be aware, but Caroline O'Connor is an English-born Australian musical theatre legend. Chita Rivera, of course, is an American musical theatre legend.

What do these two have in common (you know, besides a theatre full of homos)?

Caroline O'Connor was the original Velma is the Australian revival of Chicago.

Chita was the original Velma in Chicago full stop.

I have also seen Bebe Neuwirth when she was the original Velma in the Broadway revival of Chicago.

This got me to thinking that after seeing so many original Velmas are any Velmas original anymore?

It also got me to thinking that so after seeing so many musical theatre legends, the American legends rave on about Sondheim and the British legends rave on about Andrew Lloyd Webber, which is probably the real reason for the Revolutionary War.

I also got a couple new DVDs. Grey Gardens with Drew Barrymore and Jessica Lange. I am totally in love with this movie and watch it at least once a week. I sometimes even find myself speaking in the accent of Little Edie.

The other DVD I bought was The Big C with Laura Linney. Number one, I adore Laura Linney. Number two, I was in fits of laughter and tears throughout the entire series.

The only downside is that every time my dog sniffs my leg, I think I have cancer. I also keep making decisions as if I only have two years to live.

Let's see... what else?????

Tonight for dinner I had two hot dogs and an ice cream sundae.

What is going on with you???!!!

That disappointed me cuz I liked her. Anyhow, can't wait to hear more about the move. Don't be gone so long next time!
