figures....

1-35 southbound

...that the weather would get nice the day i decide to leave. for the third time - wtf?

the weekend was good.

i arrived on saturday and chatted with my friend kari on the phone - haven't talked to her in awhile (hi Kari!). we chatted about our upcoming visit! :) very much excited about that :) then i met my mom for dinner at fitger's latest eatery called burrito union. it was kind of like a sit down funky chipotle. while i like their style (really cool chandeliers!) i still think that chipotle tastes way better. but it was still enjoyable. i had the veggie burrito with fresh jalapeƱo's and there were insanely hot. i know they're supposed to be but i thought i had done damage to my upper lip! so i cooled it off with the yummy apricot beer (soo good!). after dinner we stopped by hepzibah's - the candy store i used to work at - for some goodies :) i got some cordials and anise mints - mmmmm! then we picked up ross and it was time for......

Jesus Christ Superstar....

i LOVE this play! this made the third time i've seen it but the last time that ted neeley will be playing Jesus. while he is very very good - he is a bit old to be playing jesus. but i still loved it nonetheless. cory glover played Judas (whom i think deserves more credit but that's another blog...) and his voice was astounding! i loved him!

the play took on a new twist this time around. it was more industrial - i guess that's how i would describe it. the previous two times there was more color and a warmer set. i preferred that. this time around they also sang a lot slower - which was slightly annoying. i am huge huge fan of the original cast recording and am used to the pace of that. so there ya go - that's my review. i guess it sounds bad - but i did have a great time! afterwards i spent money buying a poster with ted on it and two magnets cause i have to buy stuff....

after the play ross and i went to fitger's brewhouse. we had some beer and some nachos and good conversation. unfortunately i was dead tired and so we ended the evening after two hours.

so there ya go. my weekend. here are some pictures. included are some of the cat kennel. not very good photo's - i should try again next time i'm up.

Ted Neely is about 35 years TOO OLD (at least) to still be touring with JCS. *sigh* But I am sad that I couldn't go to the show. Hmph. The last time I saw it, it was also more "industrial" (less hippie-ish) and I didn't like it as well as the "traditional" version. Such a fun show though.

Next time the pitcher's on me! It must be crazy to be in that touring company. I checked out the JCS website and they are going all over the place. True rockstars.

Oh and cool photo of driving on 35. I like your idea of taking the picture straight ahead with the perspective of the road in the middle.
