    Seeing "Chaplin: The Musical" on Broadway today! I'm really excited. :halo: And just between you guys and I, I told my little sister (who hates Broadway) that the show was about a duck just to get her excited. ;) It's not. It's about Charlie Chaplin.

    Christmas decorating has been making me smile (and not be on the forum). I finished most of the around-the-house decorating and the outside decorating, so now all that's left for this morning/afternoon is the tree (my favorite part).

    I'm late, but that's great, Vincent! As the others said, hope you will still be able to come on the forums during that time, but regardless, I'm really happy for you!

    They are? Cool...I'm actually finding this out first from you.

    Hearing "12 Days of Christmas", as sung by John Denver and the Muppets on the radio puts a smile on my face today, and any day.

    Just returned from seeing "Chaplin: The Musical" today. The musical itself was really really good.

    Although, the Second Act was probably 10,000 times better than First Act. It wasn't that the first act was bad. There definitely were some excellent moments in the first act, such as Charlie Chaplin discovering himself as "The Little Tramp" for the first time. (My god...the orchestration there was like a dream for me! It sounded so much fun! I'd kill to be in that orchestra! :halo:) The only situation about the first act was that it just dragged in some parts. The second act was just much more exciting!

    Now I could go on and on about my review for this musical (any one interested at all? ;)) But let me get to the best part. You know how Broadway usually does its "Broadway Cares Equity Fights AIDS" thing where you donate money to help those with AIDS. If you donate a certain amount of money you get a signed poster or Playbill by the cast. Well, my dad donated $20 and got me a signed Playbill. Here's the best part: My dad bought the Playbill from Christianne Noll, the original Emma Carew in "Jekyll and Hyde!" (She was Charlie Chaplin's mother, Hannah, in the show. Most of the cast usually are out in their costumes when they ask for money for Broadway Cares stuff like this. I did NOT expect her at all personally.) I didn't realize it until I took a quick glance at her when my dad bought the Playbill. I was so excited, but I didn't have time to chat with her because we had to head to Grand Central to catch our train.

    Today was probably one of my more memorable days seeing a Broadway show! :D

    Listening to Emmet Otter's Jug-Band MP3s make me want to sing those songs. The Avenue Q songs, now maybe sooner or later I will start listening to the Muppet Christmas Carol soundtrack some time next month.

    I just won two tickets to The Hobbit on the radio's trivia show!

    So the rules of the game are if you ask them a question and you stump them, then they give you tickets to a premiere of a movie for that week (or whatever else they have to offer) but then they ask you a question. If you can answer their question than they put in the draw for a special prize that week.
    I didn't get their question, but the question I asked them was: What was the first TV show that Kermit the Frog ever made an appearance on?
    They didn't know the answer (Sam and Friends) so I got free advance movie passes.
    YAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYY!!!! :)

    fabric.com has a sweet sale on faux shag fur, which is what I use for puppets. I snagged a whole bunch.

    I know, I'm so excited! Can't wait to see it! :)

    I was very surprised at their guesses..they somehow knew that Rowlf's first appearances were on the Jimmy Dean show. I was very impressed, but they didn't know where Kermit first appeared, they were guessing things like the Ed Sullivan and some other names I don't remember, it was a good guess on their part. But they were wrong.
    Next time I'm going to ask a Seinfeld question. :D

    I just an e-mail today for a job interview for a lifeguarding job so much better than that hotel I had an interview at last month. It's a condo that is ridiculously part-time (4 hours on weekdays, 5 on weekends, closed Fridays) and won't interfere with my school schedule at all. I'm e-mailing the guy tomorrow to schedule the interview and this'll be great to carry me through the school year while giving me plenty of time to have a life.
