Stream of Consciousness- My mother in law has a birthday coming up in March and one of the things I obsess over is finding gifts for her. She has everything, she goes everywhere... She's beautiful and talented and has a heart of gold. I am always scouting year round for the perfect Christmas and birthday gift (jewelry has been the theme for the past few years and it seems to work). Anyway, Sus emailed me at work... "Tickets go on sale Thursday at 10am for Wicked. How about we take Mom for her birthday?" You have no idea how perfect this gift is for her. She loves the Wizard of Oz...She loves a good show tune. So without hesitation it was decided. Thursday morning tickets went on sale at 10am. Sus would get on line and buy them. At 10:14am, tickets were sold out. We did not get tickets... Oh well, it was a good idea. "Cath, we could always go to Chicago and see it..." Freakin' Brilliant! "Absolutely!!" So we are going to Chicago in April... the girls. Patricia, Susie, my niece Aimee and me! How much fun is that? We still haven't picked a hotel and I'm open for suggestions on where to go. This made me think about our trip last year to New York City, staying at the Waldorf Astoria, seeing Ground Zero, the magnificent food, experiencing the subway, decidedly preferring surly taxicab drivers, St Patricks Cathedral, Times Square, Sparks, Carnegie Deli, Bloomingdales. We must do that again. A place that was recommended to
us but we didn't go was to Serendipity. It was simply too crowded, but one day I WILL have a fffrozen hot chocolate. Have you ever seen the movie Serendipity with John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale? -Cute campy romantic comedy with a nice soundtrack. Over the years I have found myself buying the soundtracks of John Cusack movies. I have adored him in so many movies (note... not films... except maybe Being John Malkovich). I think I'll add a trivia at the end of this blog... I'm not one to follow the tabloids and I still don't.... Michael follows that stuff... which leaves me scratching my head because... well...
Michael is an unlikely sort to follow celebrities... which is funny because so many of his blog topics are about celebrities... and his disdain for them. That I get. I wish they would just not speak about their politial views. I enjoy the fantasy of a movie... Once someone opens their mouth... It takes me a long time to get past that. Michael, will simply not watch or listen to them again. I understand that completely and I did that for a while myself... but then I would only watch Arnold, Mel, and Bruce movies... of which Arnold isn't what I had hoped for as a governor and Bruce... why did he and Demi get a divorce anyway? Do you suppose Bruce is gay? Is he married again? Tell me when did wedding vows get changed from "Do you promise to love him, comfort him, honor and keep him for better or worse, for richer or poorer, in sickness and health and forsaking all others, be faithful only to him so long as you both shall live?" to "Today, a day of music and celebration,I pledge to share my life with you.Whether the days that come are happy or sad,I will live them with you. I give myself to you as your husband." What the hell is that crap? I mean come on..... Good grief!! Where was I? Oh yes... John Cusack... I like his movies, I have similar taste in music...I have loved The Specials, and The Clash as long as I have paid attention to music, I hate John Cusack's politics.... over at the Huffington Post he has written a couple of articles... incredibly naive and towing the liberal line...tossing regurgitated lies.... [in a whisper, I plead with John] "Oh... good grief...John..... shhhh....dear John.... shhhh...................let me keep my little crush on you in tact.....go make another campy movie with a wonderful soundtrack..." So John is a huge fan of the Cubs and still calls Chicago home... maybe we will spot him when we are there in April....


Major K is home and so is Mustang!!! A belated Welcome home!!!!

Try this stupid little compatibility test, just plug in your birth date (you can change the celebrity if you like)
