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?

Sorry, I meant Wicked the musical.  I saw commercials for it at least two or three times a day which became real bothersome to me, Lol.

1.  What did you last have to eat?

I'm currently snacking on green seedless grapes.

2.  What one good thing happened this week?

Got a killer deal at Toys R Us on a dollhouse for DD's birthday.

3.  Sun/Clouds or both?

The sky is prettier when there are big puffy clouds floating across it, plus it gives us a break from the sun. So, both.

Michelle Obama

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

Dinner, but growing up in New England we called it suppah.

That bothers me too, that and book to movie.

Here's a great snippet and explanation of that number

I also love the "Dice are Rolling" which is the game of musical chairs in the stage production as Peron's generals are killed off one by one til Peron rises to power.. that was lost in the movie

Well, just for three examples, I saw Les Mis in London and loved it. I saw Wicked in Chicago and loved it. I was in Banff this fall for business and loved it so much I took my husband back to see it this summer. Surely that couldn't have been a serious question, Jambles?

That whole show for me as an actor was about costume changes and set pieces... every single one of us in the company had cheat sheets about where we had to be when and what set pieces we had to move and what we had to be wearing... I LOVED being one of the aristocrats in Peron's Latest Flame and moving in tight formation around the stage while the military was moving counter to us singing their half of the song- we weren't allowed to acknowledge each other-- hands down the hardest number I've ever done.

"I love Evita. I've seen the show hundreds of times. As with most plays, the movie is pure cr@p. It hurts me to hear people who have only seen the movies talk about how much they HATE Evita, " --------- That is a good point. I can see how the movie version might not be a good example of the show, especially not with Madonna in the lead.

I loved Wicked. We took the kids to see it and they both enjoyed it!

The only part that rattled me was the pronunciation of Elphaba. When I read the book, I pronounced it in my head as "El Faba".
