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.

Sizzling.. In a Good Way

It’s 110 degrees in So. California right now. I keep having flashbacks to that Twilight Zone episode titled The Midnight Sun, where the sun is getting closer and closer and everyone is in dire need of water. It’s enough to keep you indoors for sure!

For those lucky folks that are not at work right now, grab a nice glass of iced tea or lemonade or if you feel somewhat snooty you can make an Arnold Palmer (half tea, half lemonade), and check out NPR’s sizzling hot summer reads.

I can never get enough of this stuff.
