Bets - as Hildy in On The Town

Early July 4th celebrations, The Marvelous Wonderettes, and cute puppy photos. :)

I feel like I've been in constant state of "full" this entire weekend!! :P The BBQ last night at my co-worker Steve's house was really fun and the food there was just delicious! We got to spend some time with people from work that I hardly get to see (some reps in the field whose company I really enjoy) and we got a tour of his luxuriously beautiful and extremely HUGE house (I kid you not, just one room in his "basement" was actually bigger than my entire house!!) We had some wonderful homemade food and got to play with his adorable puppy. All in all it was a wonderful evening. :)

Tomorrow I have to work... which, to me, seems:
  1. Pointless
  2. Absurd
  3. Really, really cruel ;)
I'm only kidding, of course... since I do love my job and I am VERY thankful that I have July 4th off - since I know many people who don't. :(

Today Mark & I went to Marukai Wholesale Market and spent WAAAY too much money on food... A good lesson that we learned is never to go there hungry - we must've spent double what we usually do just because everything looked so good!! :P Next time we're eating lunch THEN going to the market! ;)

On an LA theatre note, got a wonderful email from Bets about "The Marvelous Wonderettes" opening this Fall at the El Portal Theatre. :) I'm SO excited for her because I know how much this show means to her!! I've been trying to see when it's possible to fly out there to see her in it. :D

And I've been pondering this all week... Since it's a pretty sure bet that Kevin won't be doing "Millie" at Musical Theatre West in late October (he chose to do MY WAY with Nick in Escondido), should I change my flight up there from late to early Oct to see "The Marvelous Wonderettes" over the Discover's Day weekend to conserve vacation days? Of course my fear with that is that someone wonderful like Misty will get cast as Millie (wouldn't she be perfect for the role??) and I'll end up kicking myself because I'll have missed it... I know it's not a big deal, but I've been pondering it for a while...

Finally, I'll leave you all with some fuzzy puppy photos from last night... Not of my fuzzy baby, but my co-worker's. :) Hope you've all had a nice weekend!! :)
