I got all my sistahs and me

Sunday afternoon was a nice time.

I met my sisters, my aunt, and my cousin to see the musical Hairspray.

Both of my sisters had seen the movie version and had been raving about it for the better part of a year. I had not seen the movie and was skeptical as the last couple of theater experiences I've had have been quite disappointing.

It was several years ago and I was dying to see Rent. It was all the rage. So, my man took me. It was awful. Oh, I suppose the singing and acting were fine. It was the story-line we couldn't get with and really couldn't see past it.

And then, more recently, we went to see a play with our friends Glenn & Val. Unfortunately, Glenn didn't really read up on the play before we went. It was written by Tennesee Williams. I can say the acting was excellent on this one, but much like Rent, the subject matter made some of us very uncomfortable. It was to the point for Glenn & Val that we couldn't get to intermission soon enough. Needless to say, we left.

So, Hairspray... it was a lot of fun. I got into it and by the finale, we were all smiling and clapping.

We continued on a good note and went to the Cheesecake Factory for an early dinner.

Looks like you had fun! : )

Hey... I made the Caribbean Salad the other day. It was good... even though Boo picked the beans out.. she's not a beanie kinda girl. But it would even be good without the beans and more hmm... italian-y. Is that a word? lol But it was good. And I did it with chicken. We like meat too!
