Guilty Pleasure

I have to make a confession. I have been watching Legally Blonde The Musical: The Search For Elle Woods on MTV. I recorded it so that my son could see the audition process, but after the first show I was hooked. I know this post is not really book related… but there are a series of books by Amanda Brown that the movie and Broadway show were based on. I know, a very loose connection indeed.

Anyway… the audition process is brutal! Singing while on an exercise bike, dancing in stilettos on a cobblestone street, etc. I had no desire to see this show at all but I’ve decided that when it comes to L.A. in August ’09, that I am going to go. If you don’t have a lot of time to watch stuff like this, TIVO it like I do and watch it while you are eating breakfast. You can also watch full episodes online. If you watch it, tell me what you think of it.

Back to Normal

The show closed last night. The kids were all amazing and we had a lot of fun backstage. It was a full week of long nights and lots of bad meals (eating on the go, etc.). Today is my first day back without rehearsal or running around so I am looking forward to actually cooking a meal tonight and not having to order one that has a number assigned to it.

Now that things are slowing down, I intend to catch-up on all my reading. Just about done with my book club’s pick for July. I’m also trying to figure out the itinerary for our vacation. We will be visiting Colorado (Boulder and Denver) and other than visiting the Tattered Cover Bookstore, I have nothing else planned! I better get on that too.

No rehearsals or scouts or PTO meetings. Whatever will I do with myself? Oh yeah.. still have to work. Wishful thinking.
