La Vie Boheme!

Rent Rent Rent Rent!! So, it doesn't work so well written down but when it's sung it's amazing! Yesterday, I saw the stage production of RENT for the third time. Of course it wasn't the same as seeing it for the first time but it was still amazing. The music, the stage production, the message. Yes, I did start to cry when Angel began to get sick, so about 3 songs into the second act. (Damn mom's sappy gene!) I went with my friends, Emily, Preston, Lindsay, Felicia and Andrea. Besides Emily and I, it was the first time for everyone else. They all had seen the movie before so they new the story and most of the songs but I knew they would love the musical so much more when they saw it as it was supposed to be seen. The movie is ok but it just doesn't have same impact as the stage production. There is something about the way it is staged that gives it life. I know that sounds weird because if you have seen it before you know that the stage is pretty much bare but the sparseness invites you into the story more. It takes way from the distractions of sets and just let's you focus on the story and the characters. After the show, I listened to the soundtrack on my ipod and relieved the whole experience. If you haven't seen it then I suggest you find out if the tour is coming to an area near you and go see it.

15 lbs!

I've lost 15 lbs!! Woohoo! I have to say I am really impressed with my self but I find it strange that other people can see that I have lost weight by looking at me but I can't. I can tell it in my clothes because I have more room in my pants then I had before. In some cases, my pants are getting to go so baggy that I don't even have to unbutton them to get them off! But when I look in the mirror I really don't see a difference in how I look. My coworkers have noticed, my mom and even my dad says he can see a difference so why can't I? I think maybe I want to see such a huge difference in how I look that I'm disappointed in the subtle change that consciously I don't see it at all. Anyway, I'm still proud of myself!

I really should post more.

I never thought I would say this again because there was a time when just looking at him made me nauseous but Leonardo Dicaprio is hot! I just saw "The Departed" and DAMN! is he good looking. Like, I said I never thought I would ever think such a thing after all the times I saw Titanic. Oh, yeah he's also a good actor and blah, blah, blah. Who knew by adding a boston accent and some baggy clothes and baseball cap it would turn him into a super stud! I'm having such a girl moment! hehe

Now enough about Leo, *sigh* I'm watching the new dvd of The Little Mermaid. My favorite disney movie of all time. I still remember seeing it in the theaters for the first time and can do all the lines and music. I love the music! Sebastien, Flounder, Scuttle and the whole game. The best friends a mermaid princess could ever have. I loooooove it! I wish I could have red hair like Ariel. Maybe this is where my fixation on red hair came from. hmmm...

I'm sure you ae all wondering how the diet is going. Well, I had about two weeks where I didn't so good. I haven't gained any of the pounds I have lost which is good but I also didn't lose anything either but I think I have now righted the ship. I am almost at 15 lbs! I'm hoping by the time mom and I go Christmas shopping in the beginning of November that I will be at the 20 lbs benchmark. That would be sweet. I am so looking forward to next summer when I can wear a swimsuit and not look like a whale.
