Infomercials, and *SIGH*-worthy broadway men... ;)

This weekend while Mark & I were staying at Ihilani, I somehow managed to watch more TV than I probably have in the last few years combined. :P On Sunday morning before Mark got up, I was flipping through the channels when I got sucked into an infomercial. I usually despise them, but for some reason, I couldn't stop watching it... When the half hour was over, I did something I've never done before (and I vow I'll never do again)... I actually called to order the product! :P

As you can probably tell, I'm refraining from mentioning exactly which product this was - but I have to say that it was a moment of weakness on my part. I've often sat at home and seen glimpses of infomercials on TV and wondered who the heck would buy these products? Well, I guess I know now. :P People like me - apparently. Whether they're even a legit company remains to be seen - I'm keeping a close eye on my AmEx statement just in case.

And I've been in Broadway heaven today - I just received my Easter Bonnet DVD in the mail and got to see Kevin perform at the Easter Bonnet competition. *SIGH* It was the next best thing to actually being there... (Okay, so it doesn't really compare, but at least I got to hear him play the guitar and sing) :) I also LOVED watching Christopher Sieber (BIG *SIGH*) and Rod (the Avenue Q puppet) make out on stage - it was just hilarious! :D

As a side note, I'm still very sad that I never got to see Mr. Sieber as Bobby in "Company" in LA. :( I've seen him on stage twice now, in "Millie" and "Into the Woods" and there's just something extremely attractive about him... I just can't put my finger on just what it is... but whatever it is - women, men, puppets, I don't care - they're all attracted to the man! ;)

Have a nice evening, everyone! :)
