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?

You've also said Mt.Rushmore was a waste of time and money too.  Is there anything worth the expense IYO.. Besides space and astronauts?

<<I've tried lord knows i've tried to like Phantom but the music makes me want to stab myself repeatedly....

Lion King is an amazing piece of theater-- poor Julie Taymor, she should have quit with that and not tried to save Spiderman: turn off the dark.>>

I'm with you, tried to like it and don't.  Now Lion King?  I didn't see it in NY but saw the traveling production, I thought it was amazing.  I also really enjoyed Edward Sissorhands for some strange reason, the production, not the movie.

I don't think Madonna did anything for Evita either, But she does have a beautiful voice.

"But she does have a beautiful voice." ---------- That is extremely debatable, IMHO. She is very talented and a good dancer/performer, but her voice is pretty poor, at best.

<p>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.  :-)</p>

I saw Les Mes in Londong, it was wonderful....was it a ALW?  For some reason I didn't think it was his...but I'm not that up on that type of stuff.

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

Just asked that question, didn't think so and too lazy to google.  :)

The movie lost what I love about the show which is a small ensemble playing multiple roles-- when I did Evita I played: a girl mourning her at her funeral ("ride on my train oh my people.. and when it's your turn to die you'll remember.. "), her mother, an aristocrat, a member of Peron's cabinet, a member of the crowd outsied the casa rosada (you shout "Peron! Peron!" 24 times before changing to "EVIIIIITTA! EVITTTTTA!") and a torchbearing protester in "A new Argentina"  that is the great joy of that show for me which is lost in the movie...

And lest it be thought I don't like "spectacle" productions I absolutely to my bones love "Wicked"  even my wife cried...

TY for that correction bea. Godspell is similar to Jesus Christ Superstar and DD2 and I saw that at a local theatre last Summer, I didn't know if she'd like it or not but it was a powerful production and they even carried some of it down to the aisles which made it that much more engaging which was pretty neat.

I think there are lots of things that are a waste of time and money and lots of things that are worth the time and money, that would be a good set of fluff questions, don't you think?   I bet it varies widely across the board.
