Annie... with a bit of footy thrown in

Well I had a nice weekend.... I caught the latest Aussie theatre production currently in Perth...Annie.

While it wasn’t the best musical I’ve ever seen, it was a good fun show and entertaining to watch. I’d never seen it live, only the movie (and not in ages) so it was fun to see the differences.
Todd McKenney was great, the littlest orphan an absolute scene stealer and Sandy the dog was brilliant as he yawned his way through most of his 2 minutes of total stage time! I was maybe slightly disappointed with the singing from the children, Annie included, but perhaps I’m a little jaded and expected way too much from them.
The littlest of the orphans pulled my attention whenever she was on stage and she shone even every second she was there... I could not take my eyes off her. This was also the case for me with Todd McKenney during the “Easy Street” number too, but I do think he’s generally brilliant and was certainly the main reason I wanted to see this show.
All up it was a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon but not a musical I would rush out to see again.

That entire opinion however may be slightly tainted by the fact that my beloved Eagles were fighting their way through an AFL semi-final while I was at the theatre. I was thankfully that they went into the second half with such a commanding lead because I felt sure that they were going to win. Collingwood, we’re coming to kick your butt out of the finals next.
Also I have to say that even as an Eagles supporter, I am SO proud of the Dockers for knocking Geelong out of the finals. That is no small achievement and I hope they go on next week to do the same to the Crows!! (sorry Chris...well maybe not! ;-P )

A bit of a catch up from me

What’s been happening with me? ...well not a lot really.

I’ve been a little off my game for the last few months.... but that’s not to say that joyous things haven’t been happening in those 3 or 4 months.

So now that I’ve written it down, it sorta looks like maybe I was wrong in saying that nothing much has been happening....

I'm baaaack

Bali was brilliant!
I had a fabulous time and enjoyed my birthday and Mum's birthday there! I will post about the trip along with some photos when I get them all sorted and loaded. I only got back last night so I'm still sorting washing and getting life back to normal to return to work on Monday.

Being off the cyber-grid was actually quite nice, although I did miss Glee on Wednesday morning and all of you of course! ♥ I wasn't really aware how much time I spent online until I didn't. LOL

Thank you to each of you who sent me birthday messages of all kinds. Sorry I didn't respond personally as they were sent but they are appreciated greatly! :-)

Welcome to 2012

It feels like the new year officially started for me today as I went back to work. As long as I’m not getting up for work I feel like nothing is official yet! So today is the 3rd of Jan, but let’s call it the start of the new year.

So here’s to a wonderful 2012 for one and all! May it be filled with love, happiness and passions... even if some of them stem from a fictional land!!

An update of sorts

Hello LJ! *waves*

Why do I never update you?
Probably because I don’t think there’s anything update worthy to write.
While that is still the case, since I’m on my lunch break at work I thought I could maybe cobble something together.

I’m not sure I can take it

It’s a pretty exciting week –

Firstly it’s a matter of single digit sleeps until the Harry Potter premier (8 to be precise) and now there’s SO much Glee Live amazingness going around from the final show(s)!

I may just explode from the sheer wonderfulness of it all!!

(just realised I never replied to any comments on my last post - *is bad*)
Harry Potter

WOO – HOO!! I’ve got it!!!

I have my copy of HP7 part 1!!

Very excited!

I have watched the bonus disc already and I’m SO looking forward to curling up on the couch tonight with a glass of red and enjoy the movie. It’s been so long since I saw it in the theatre!! WOO-HOO!!

Tomorrow I’m off to see a theatre production of “The Music Of Andrew Lloyd Webber”. Then I’ll probably watch HP7 again at night. LOL

So all round, it sounds like a pretty good weekend to me! :-)
