I dedicate way my finger by way of this post to one of Applebee’s finest – Jason, whose love I shall not soon forget. Never before and never again will a waiter bark so coyly at me I don’t think.

Ah, act 1.

We ran it today. Lori and her piano may need to spend some more time together.

Ah, I am a lil’ bit booked currently – hoping to catch up on all things hifi blog (have I mentioned that I really love this whole blogging the show thing), and all things life soon. I don’t know if y’all know it, but I have this other blog, and I’m SO not keeping up with it, and it sortof makes me feel like I’m letting St. Louis down. I’m sorry Pierre and Auguste! I’ll go looking for time, and I’m sure I’ll find it. (after I memorize like, everything in the script/music, naturally)

Looking forward to milkshakes and BLTs at Crown Candy,


ps I just reminded myself that Scott has a radio show! I love it that the internet lets me listen to it!

UPDATE: Jason from applebees is a total perv. Euwwww.

update ps Sometimes when I read through this blog, it seems like I’m reading the 5th grade me writing back at the 20 something me. Just an observation.


So, rehearsals April 16, 2008

Rehearsals have been swell thus far. I was very happy to find that they had free blow-pops! The source music cds should be a fun thing to have a listen to. Singing through “The Last Great Record Store On Earth” (what a title) was relatively easy. I get to sing alto. I get to sing it well. I was initially worried that everyone would want to sing alto, but I don’t really know why I was worried b/c that is never the case for some reason.

Anyway, we got to learn the Aretha Franklin song today (“She Goes”) and it was awesome! Oooo, I am so excited to be channeling some sassy Miss Ree. Or more like channelling that mail-lady back-up dancer/singer from the Blues Brothers Ree number.

I will admit that, though I like Pat Benatar (and the awesome shoulder thrust move she does in “Love is a Battlefield” that totally scares away all the Pimps and Johns from the dance floor…you know what I’m talkin’ bout) — I don’t really *get* what the heck it means to be Number 5 especially *with a Bullet*. I’m just guessing that “a bullet” somehow synonymous for “emphasis” and I’m happy enough to just go with that. Fun to sing though.

I’m way more into the soul stuff though (i.e. I like dance music) – so I’m looking forward to the choreography rehearsal this Sunday. I have been known to do my best James Brown on many a dance floor across town, and its time to share that with the greater metro area’s musical theatre enthusiasts.
