I've done the Concours d'Elegance -
I couldn't decide what was more fun to stare at - the people or the cars.

I'm an exhausted, cranky mess today.

It's (sadly) far less fun when you have to attend to the people and their cars.
Yeah. Tell me about it. It's bad enough when you swallow your weekend doing things you love (like next weekend when we schlep up to WDW to hang with Poppy & Co.) but when you do things that are pretty much underwhelming...

Hey, you said that, I didn't.

I left a tour of Notre Dame once to check out Tintin posters in a nearby shop.
I am tacky. Tacky, tacky, tacky.
But in a loveable way ....

Oh .. and a local eatery here ?
Serves Indian and Italian.
No-one ever appears to eat there.
I can't imagine why ...

I keep hearing a song which I think is from Wicked : it's called "Popular" although she sings it "Pop! -u-lerr". Anyway, I thought it was quite funny and catchy and the story sounded kinda fun too. You can see that I'd be right in with the 65% demographic who loved it!
S'pose we'll have to wait 3 or more years to see a production out thisaway.

Oooh, Tintin. Nice.
Wicked, not so much. I loathed and despised the book - I think I'm the only person in the world who did because I get these horrified "You didn't LIKE that?" gasps when I say that, but yeah, no. I didn't. So, good for you for even finding the musical "meh." And sorry about the dinner. That must have been painful.
I made some chicken stock the other day and thought of you while doing so. It kicked ass and I thought "Hmm, too bad Joke can't taste this. It's only fabulous." Alas, it's gone now, put into an equally fabulous soup that my family happily lapped up.

Ummm, what happened to the bathroom makeover? did I miss it somewhere or is it still ongoing?
I need the sight of pain...to offset mine...

Yeah, what DID happen to the bathroom makeover?
I hate those weekends, I have to admit. It's all go go go and no stop stop stop. And that isn't good for the soul.
That eatery sounds dreadful and what on earth is pan-asian?? Stir-fry (geddit? Asian in a pan? Sigh)
I liked Wicked the book but I hated the follow-up. It made me cross because I'd been looking forward to it and all I got for my trouble was sheer rubbish.

The bathroom makeover is in the "tradespersons keep coming by to give us pricing estimates on tile, flooring and brightwork."
Deadly dull blogging, that.

P.S. All I knew of Wicked: The Musical is that it was supposed to be very funny and clever. Instead, it was cute and somewhat clever and the only song about which I gave a damn was the "Popular" song, which is just too damned catchy and I ended up liking against my will.
It wasn't terrible but it was verrrrrry underwhelming.
Stomper Girl posted at 10:27 PM, March 21, 2007
Oh. So the rest of the music not up the standard of "Popular", then? No wonder I've only heard the one song.
Joke posted at 11:58 PM, March 21, 2007
Let's just say the rest of the songs are not as catchy, if that means anything to you.
