Humidity, Parade, and UGH Little Shop... :(  
UGH...It's so hot... The humidity has just been awful the past few days and really, that's what's making the weather so unbearable lately! :P The really awful thing about this weather is that we live down the road (pretty far away, actually) from a big sewage plant and when the trades stop, the air is not the nicest thing in the world to smell... I know, pretty disgusting, huh? :P But luckily for Mark, he can't smell so he's pretty baffled by all my complaints.

We had a little birthday celebration for one of my co-workers after work complete with a delicious strawberry boston creme cake... After indulging in that a bit and skipping Curves (yet again...) I realized that I had better get into the work out mood again soon. What I really need to do is think about that euphoric state I was in last week Tuesday and hopefully I'll be able to get back into the right frame of mind again. :)

I think I've finally decided what I'd like to use my gift card on... Ever since coming home from Kevin's Mother's Day concert, I've been obsessed with the musical Parade by Jason Robert Brown. Totally heartbreaking story, beautiful score... just a haunting, amazing piece of work! Kevin sang "It's Hard To Speak My Heart" and "This Is Not Over Yet" and it was beautiful beyond words... I need to find someplace where I can see a full staging of this soon, I really do... But in the meantime I think I've decided to spend my gift card on it... if I can just find the cast recording here... :(

In other theatre news: I knew it was going to be a bad day when I read this first thing in the morning... :( Poor Hunter... :( Drat! :( I guess that's one show to take off my Broadway "must see" list. :( :( I was really looking forward to it.

I totally agree about the weather. I need to find me a market and just sit there for a few hours. I need to buy me a laptop with wireless internet so I can just sit in there and keep cool.

Oh! You're getting Parade, that is a great selection. You going to check Towers? I'm thinking to look around for the KMK DVD, if not Amazon will do.

Awwwwwwww...no Little Shop of Horrors, gee that bites...

I was about ready to head out to a Star market to look for you last night so we could sit together. ;) JK, of course, though the thought of a frozen food aisle did enter my mid once or twice last night... :)

I'm checking Tower on my lunch, but what are the chances that any store here would have something as obscure as Parade? We never have anything here... :( My next option is to try Amazon I guess...even though I vowed never to go back there after a particularly bad "return" incident last year... *Grumble, grumble* :P

I know...I think I'm going to Daiae just to be in cold freezing cool air.

I hope the weather gets better for you. Have fun using your gift card. :)

I certainly hope the weather gets better here too, it's absolutely miserable! :P And gift card shopping is the best... all the fun with none of the guilt! :)

It's really funny to hear your speak of hot humid weather! Here in
MI we are freezing! I don't think we have had an 80 Degree day
yet. The warmest it has been is like low to mid 70's, which is not usual for this time. It also has been really rainy too! Sat it was in the 60's and raining! Last year at this time we were
already starting to sweat our brains out. I would like a happy
medium to that. Enjoy that gift card--and think I must work out!!
"I must, I must, I must improve my bust, and when I get to 103 all
the hot guys will look at me!"

LMBO, Barb! You always make me laugh! :) Such odd weather we're all having for early June. I could go for some rain here - maybe then all the humidity will leave the air... :P

It's so nice to hear from you,...wasn't your daughter's big day this past weekend? Or is it this coming weekend? Take care and I can't wait to read your recap of the graduation. :)

Sorry about the muggy weather!
I hope that it gets better,too!
Go get something with the gift card that you can use at Curves. :)

Thanks, Katie! :) And gift card shopping is wonderful! All my friends know the best gift they could get me is the gift of shopping! :) Hope your week is going well. :)
