Hi there...just wanted to come on over and share a few things.
First of all, we had the BEST evening last Friday. We did, in deed, get tickets to see Avenue Q. Very funny and most definitely not for the kiddies. Plenty of swearing and some good ol' fashioned full frontal puppet nudity. :-)
So our "date" started out charmed...we drove into Portland and got a superb parking spot right near the Keller. When we went to buy our tickets, they had just opened up a "lottery" of tickets right in front. So we paid nosebleed prices and sat in the orchestra section row c. That's on the floor, four rows back from the stage. Oh yeah, baby! I could see the fur on Kate Monster's boobs, that's how close we were!
After this fabulous scoop, we headed over to a restaurant called Carafe. Super cute little French bistro with super good food. It was quite busy and so we asked if there was a chance we would be able to get seated within 10 - 15 minutes. The hostess checked the book and said, "One of our 'reservations' is 40 minutes late so I'm going to give you their table." Badda bing badda boom...we're sittin' down with menus in front of us! S'wheat!
Another SUPER fun thing...we saw Carl Wolfson who is a radio personality (and exceptionally intelligent and funny political humorist/comedian!) on KPOJ 620am. He was also going over to see Avenue Q. Glen has met Carl several times and since Glen is VERY active in our local Democratic party, he calls into the radio station once a month to plug the meetings and events. Well, it was cool enough running into Carl but THEN on Monday morning, while he was doing the chit chat thing, Carl was talking about Avenue Q, Carafe and then just casually mentions that he got to see "Glen Geller of the Washco Dems and his wife, Michelle." I know I'm a dork, I admit it, but I got such a kick out of this! Thanks Carl, if you're reading this! (I'm sure he's not!) :-)
So to reward you for sitting through that story, if in fact, you did (smile), here is a picture of an awesome charm bracelet I found at Goodwill. I am always on the look out for charm bracelets and more than not, I come up empty handed. But when I found this, t'was a good day. Check it out...
I can't begin to describe the fabulous clinkity noise it makes when I wear it. Those silver pineapple looking things are hollow and the colorful fruity beads are a heavy plastic. Click to enlarge! It's just delicious!!!
Oh man oh man...we are almost upon a glorious three day weekend! Can't wait can't wait!!!
Take care and see ya 'round, pardners!
