1.  What did you last have to eat?

2.  What one good thing happened this week?

3.  Sun/Clouds or both?

4.  What celebrity would you trade a day for if you could and why? 
(Replace celebrity for anyone on this planet if you want).

5.  Do you call your evening meal dinner or supper?

Me too. It.Never.Ends. I had some kind of ear fatigue when we left that show.

It's no surprise I also like Les Mis, Evita, Jesus Christ Superstar and a number of his other pieces too.  Lloyd Webber is a master of broadway, He'd be cool to meet too.  :-)

I'm glad I am not the only Phantom hater. I saw it in London and thought it was a waste of time and money. Totally predictable story line. Mediocre music.

When dd was quite small, I managed to get out to go to the local cinema one evening. They were playing Evita. Only I did not realize that the whole dang thing was sung (I was thinking bio-pic with a few songs thrown in). There was no break, and Madonna definitely does NOT improve any of that material.

1.  What did you last have to eat?

Plain yogurt and 9 cups of coffee.  If you don't hear from me for a while, that's why.  ;)

2.  What one good thing happened this week?

The cat stopped freaking out about the new house.

3.  Sun/Clouds or both?

Either is fine.

4.  What celebrity would you trade a day for if you could and why?  

Can't think of one.


(Replace celebrity for anyone on this planet if you want).

5.  Do you call your evening meal dinner or supper? 

Dinner.  When we were kids, it was dinner most nights, but on Sunday, dinner was mid-afternoon and the evening meal was supper.

P.S.  That's all I ask of you was the first song DH and I danced to at our wedding and The Phantom was one of the first shows we saw together as a couple.  I just thought of that and that was a long time ago...

Did Andrew Lloyd Webber do Les Mis? Blech.

Sigh..... I miss my coffee bingeing days.  My stomach lining is happier but the rest of me has a sad.

"Did Andrew Lloyd Webber do Les Mis?" ------- No, Les Mis is not a Webber job.

I think Evita and Superstar are terrific- from his collaboration with Tim Rice-- it was after he left Rice that i think things fell apart for him.  I've done Evita and it remains one of my favorite theatrical experiences and one of my all time favorite shows.  LLoyd Webber did not Write Les Miserables although you would not be the first to think he did!  

I'm a confirmed Sondheim a holic both from a performers point of view and an audience members as I find his work so challenging and complex...and some of his lyrics just rend me in two... "Sometimes people leave you/ halfway through the woods/ do not let it grieve you/ no one leaves for good"  just gets me every time i see Into the Woods..
