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?

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.

"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.

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

<<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'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.

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 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..

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

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