house series finale

that was a really good ending to the series. it's fictional but yeah i'd love to have a friendship much like house and wilson's. fake your death so you and your dying bestfriend can spend the remaining 5 months of his life together. i mean, come on!

also, everyone came back...except for cuddy. it's nice that everybody else is at peace with their lives at the end. it really is a good ending to a very smart and very much well loved 8 year old tv show.

the human lady

the tony winner and multi-nominated at that human lady.

i've experienced laura benanti again last night! this time it's at the fairmont hotel in san francisco. the last time i saw her perform was three years ago in gypsy on broadway.

laura is, as per always, AMAZING! amazing! she sang her favorites and shared a lot of interesting stories in between songs. amazing! she also performed an original laura benanti...ukelele and all. something about bird turds, pick pockets, and being your own star. did i tell you she's amazing?

hanging back after the show = best decision ever! i got to meet her!!!! yes, i went a bit cray. i was a nightmare. i introduced myself and then she said "yeah i recognize you from twitter" me: "no way. are you serious?" laura: "yeah in those tiny avatar things." OMFFFG!!! *cue head explosion* then she hugged me and then our faces touched. took pictures and then more hugging and cheeks touching. and then my lady parts imploded. crazy! yeah i know? i guess she's super extra healthy now that it transformed her into this huggy person that she is now. but hey, i'm complaining. hug me all you want. take me home, i don't care.

she also smells perfectly delicious like a fucking meadow. yes, i complimented her smell. isn't that what normal people do? she had to run coz she has to be up at four in the morning. she was very apologetic about it. i can't get over how SUPER nice she is. and if you ask my friend katie, laura is in love with me. teefuckinghee!!

yeah that's right, you just read how i fangirl-ed over laura benanti. and you won't be reimbursed for your time. bwahahaha!

hands on a hardbody

where do i start? this show is really well done. i didn't think i'd love it more so than i expected. if you're a broadway freak, you'll realize how "star studded" this little show is:

hunter foster (little shop of horrors, urinetown, sutton foster's brother) allison case (hair revival)
keith carradine (hair, follies, martha plimpton's dad)
jon rua (in the heights)
david larsen (american idiot)
jay armstrong johnson (catch me if you can, a chorus line)
kathleen monteleone (legally blonde)
william youmans (wicked)
keala settle, scott wakefield, dale soules, connie ray, jim newman, mary gordon murray, jacob trent.

it's very moving to watch these actors go into characters and take us elsewhere. different characters who believed that this particular truck would solve anything and everything that's missing in their lives. amanda green's (high fidelity, bring it on) lyrics are just superbo! every song takes us much deeper into EACH character....even the guy on the sidelines. my favorite songs would definitely have to be i'm gone, burn that bridge, joy of the lord, keep your hands on it, and stronger.

hunter foster is my favorite. he made me tear up. his stache made me do it. i hated his character at the beginning of the show. then deeper into the second act, we were introduced to benny perkins' (hunter foster) soul. i also love keala settle's voice. her soprano is flawless. and her character? she played norma. the christian church goer who has so much faith in her beliefs.

sometimes, we lose focus on what we are set out to do because of the things and people that REALLY matter to us. we give up big things for our love ones and weigh what's important at the end of the day.

"if you want something, keep your hands on it. if you love someone, keep your hands on them."

in san francisco right now. 3.5 hours layover. en route to orange county.

i saw viola davis about a beer ago. she fine.

there's nobody gawkable here from where i'm sitting. four tables away is a group of old folks with money clips. they are congregating and drinking bloody marys. hmmm....maybe if i walk around, the possibility of eye boning somebody might occur.

what? i don't give a shit. i'm not from here. and it's a thursday.
