New York Trip part 1

New York and Equus was amazing! We got to meet Daniel Radcliffe & Richard Griffiths (The actors who play Harry Potter and Uncle Vernon in the HP movies.) As you can see from the picture, they were kind enough to sign my playbill. How cool is that? Dan is such a cute little thing. I just wanted to pick him up and put him in my pocket. He is so teeny tiny! As for Uncle Vernon, ugh I mean Richard Griffiths, he is huge! He has a belly that hangs to his knees. But I have to say this, that man can act! His performance was flawless. Daniel was fantastic too. I never once thought "Harry Potter" during his performance. And as for that famous nude scene, it was extremely intense. I was on the edge of my seat with my head in my hands. Dan killed it! Oh, and the guys who played the horses were hella hot! Especially Lorenzo Pisoni who plays Nugget. We got a chance to attend a work shop with him the day after the play. It was really nice to hear his take on things.

All in all, I give this trip two thumbs up. If you get a chance to make it to New York before February, you must see this play. It will be well worth your time.

I have to cut this short, but I will be posting more about my trip, so check back soon!

The BIG Apple

Start spreading the news, I'm leaving today. I want to be a part of it- New York, New York!!

Well, the time has come. I am off to New York and I can't wait! I have this nervous excitement that is hard to contain. There is so much I want to see and experience, but I'm sure I wont get to half of it. The weather might hamper some of our outdoor fun. They are predicting rain and snow for a couple of days. Yikes! I have no idea how to navigate in that kind of weather. I just know there is a patch of ice somewhere waiting for my behind. I can barely walk on dry, even concrete without tripping and breaking something much less a slick, slippery surface. This is sure to be an adventure!

...It's up to you, New York NEW YORK!!!!!

YES WE CAN!!!!!!!!!!!

The Times They Are A-Changin'

Come gather 'round people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone.
If your time to you
Is worth savin'
Then you better start swimmin'
Or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no tellin' who
That it's namin'.
For the loser now
Will be later to win
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's a battle outside
And it is ragin'.
It'll soon shake your windows
And rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changin'.

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is Rapidly agin'.
Please get out of the new one
If you can't lend your hand
For the times they are a-changin'.

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slow one now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is Rapidly fadin'.
And the first one now
Will later be last
For the times they are a-changin'

Where has the time gone?

Wow! I can't believe it's November already! So much has been going on and I have not had a chance to write. So, here is a quick list of some of the things that's been happening.
I finally read the Twilight series. Thanks Courtney! It was really good. I must confess that I love Jacob Black. Yes, Edward is perfection and all that, but I love my little wolf boy. The Twilight movie is coming out this month and I can't wait to see it. Hopefully it will be amazing.
My friends and I went to the New Kids on the Block concert. LOVED IT!!!! I touched Donnie!!! The concert was so much fun. I felt like I was 16 again. After all of these years, my heart still belongs to Donnie. I guess you never really get over your first love.
This Halloween my family dressed as characters from the Wizard of Oz. I was the Wicked Witch of the East. My costume was fantastic! I was surprised so many people knew who I was dressed as. I mean, the only part of her that anyone has ever seen is her legs and feet. I guess those black and white striped stockings and ruby slippers are very memorable. Also, I 'm sure it helped that I was surrounded by the other characters. It was so much fun to see every ones reaction as we walked down the street. Not many parents dress with their kids. It is so much more fun when the whole family gets involved. On a side note, why do parents drink alcohol while trick or treating with their kids? Can't they just take a couple of hours of their time to spend it with their kids sober? Drink when they are finished or when you are at a Halloween party. I will never understand the need to drink to have a good time. Some people just need to grow up and act like responsible adults/parents.
Anyway, November and December will be hectic. My birthday is in a couple of weeks, I will be in New York for three days right before Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving itself, Disney World for 7 days the second week of December, then it's Christmas. Whew! That's just the big stuff. I will be one busy bee! So much is going on and I can't wait.
I will try to find the time to write more. Until then........
Oh wait!!!! DON'T FORGET TO VOTE ON NOVEMBER 4th!!!!!!!!!!!!!
