just got back from the windy city...

And I've been thinking (NO!):

Having a corner suite on the 18th floor with incredible views of both Lake Michigan and the Chicago skyline is great. Except when some wacko blows a fuse that takes out 12 entire blocks of downtown power and you have to WALK up 36 flights of stairs to get to your room (curse vaulted ceilings), wash your face with water from the melted ice bucket, and read your scriptures using the backlight of your cell phone. RB Stairs what?

You really shouldn't judge people on how they look. You could have a cabbie who dresses like one of Puff Daddy's entourage but really just moved to the US from Nairobi and has an excellent command of English because that's what he has a bachelor's degree in and is now driving taxis to pay his way through Medical School. On the other hand, you could have a cabbie that dresses like Dennis Rodman and has the road rage and Tourettes to match.

It's a good thing I don't drink. For one thing, it uses up way to many tickets at taste of Chicago, and for another, its not funny if you're so drunk at the ball game that you can't find your seat and have to stumble around like a complete idiot yelling "TOUCHDOWN" and spilling Bud Lite all over your equally smashed girlfriend. It's only funny if you fall down. Ha ha ha.

I'm glad I'm not an otter. A five square-inch piece of their fur has approximately 6,500, 000 hairs, enough to cover the heads of 48 people. Can you imagine how long it would take to dry off?

I'm also glad I don't live in the 70s. Not only would I be forced to associate with balding men that probably would kill for that 5 square-inch piece of pelt, but I would be addicted to video games. Pong? Digger? Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy? Bring it on.

Ana Gasteyer was selling herself short on SNL. What a set of pipes. I am in awe.

Why the heck do I have to go all the way across the country to see a girl of seventy-fun? Don't get me wrong, Jena and I had a blast (picture to come) but what the heck's wrong with Utah?

Okay, I'm done.

Wow. You sound as if you had a plethera of epiphanies. (sp?)

Plus, we need to play, cause i miss the three awesome girls of sixty fun... and the four girls of seventy- fun. we should fix this.

Meagan, I am so with you. People complain about Utah and "the bubble" and all that crap all the time. And yes, you should get out once in a while. But Utah is a pretty swell place. Barbados might be better but that's about all I can think of.
Maria: I AGREE

How was Wicked?

Adriane said...

I'm SO GLAD you're home!!! Yes, how was Wicked? and I owe you a shirt. And I just might still owe you onions. I don't know. Did my Mom bring those back? I should know these things!

Plus, I LOVE this blog!

Meagan said...

Does the term "cruel and unusual punishment" mean anything to you?!?







Don't hit your head on the way down. I was just kidding.

It was awesome, great, grand, amazing, and incredible (do I sound like Katie Holmes yet?) Everything and nothing that I had imagined-- so much charged irony and political agenda yet so light-hearted and comedic in parts. I believe I ran the full gamut of my emotions two times, it was quite possibly more. It might even bump Les Mis off its perennially monopolistic hold as #1 musical in the world.

I hope it doesn't hit its head on the way down.

Plus I'm not sure about the onions. No one is sure. Nobody's cooked for a week. I'm hungry. I just might be forced to become domestic. Perish the thought. Or perish me...

Jena said...

Definitely tied with my number one. But no one else shares my number one, so maybe my judgement doesn't count.

Meagan said...

what is it?

Adriane said...

Pah ha ha. Me as I'm reading these comments, "What?!?!?! Oh. Phew. Oooh...mysterious deleted comment...cringe. Bad friend. Intrigued...what is it? Oh. Meagan already beat me to it."

Talk about running the gamut.
Good, I'm glad you liked it. And someday, I will see it and like it. Heck, someday I'll be in it--right Jena?

Jena said...

I was thinking you'd already seen Wicked, Adriane.

Brigadoon. All time.

Maria said...

I love Brigadoon, Jena!!! I haven't really run a favorite list for musicals, but I would rate it rather high. Have not seen WICKED though.

Meagan said...

We've only lived and breathed the soundtrack for the last 2 years. Soooo good. Brigadoon is an interesting musical. I love Scotland. (:

Adriane said...

Brigadoon is playing at the HCT Orem this summer! We should go--my friends are in it!
