Yesterday was quite the day of feasting. My mom was kind enough to pre-make udon for my lunch [with noodles, eggs, chives and gim in one container and the soup base in another]. The excitement was palpable. I seriously could NOT wait for lunch to come.
Then for dinner I met up with the Firelady at Zachary’s for some deep dish pizza that I’m practically salivating about since I’m having leftovers for lunch today. Oh the tomato sauce is gonna be even better than last night! Oooh I wish it were lunch time already!
The Baker did not join us as he started yet another one of his cleanses this week. This is not the first time he’s had to back out due to a cleanse. I suspect that he is just trying to avoid me but he assures me it’s not. Yeah, suuuuure. I kid, I kid. I’ll reserve judgment until after I get my cookies.
Mmm. Bribery never tasted so good.
Of course, this is based on the fact that I receive my bribe. I really hope I do.
The biggest excitement of the day, meaning no slight to the Firelady, was finally scoring tickets to see Wicked! I know! I am so stoked. Tami will be coming up for the evening to take in the show with me. Granted, we’re paying a wee bit more than planned but I’ve become kind of snobby about tickets. I go to one show at the Orpheum and all of the sudden I get picky.
Anywho, I tried to be respectful of Tami’s budget but a small part of me was happy to find out that there were only single seats available in the balcony that were in her price range. That way I didn’t feel guilty of scoring some awesome seats in the mezzanine. Seriously, they’re center stage in the fourth row from the front…I’ll have prime viewing experience and this cuts down the risk of sitting behind someone taller than me! Plus, what a great way to spoil Tami [for those of you worried about the price difference, I’m covering it so she’s still paying what she listed as her maximum. I wouldn’t do anyone like that!]. Sure I could have gotten orchestra seats for the same price as the mezzanine but I want to be able to see everything. Besides, what’s the point of sitting down there if you can’t see everything?
I have been dying to see this show since they first debuted it before heading to Broadway way back when and then I read the book and it’s been an obsession ever since. And now I get to go! Sure it’s not with the originating cast but whatever. It’s still Wicked.
Now all I have to do is wait. Ugh the waiting. Why didn’t I get tickets for next week show? Oh, I know; because I wasn’t thinking.
