Not Yet Dead

I got off my ass and out the door just before 3:00pm yesterday. Debbie and I had talked about possibly doing a show, but a quick text exchange (she'd left the apartment earlier) showed that she didn't think she'd be up to it.

That meant that my afternoon was a little more flexible, since we'd have headed to the TKTS booth around 4ish, otherwise. I didn't know that I wanted to see a show on my own, so I did the logical thing, and marched to the Met. What's scary is that I found lots of exhibits I didn't recognize. Doesn't mean I hadn't seen them, but they were unfamiliar. And, as with most things at the Met, beautiful and fascinating.

They shoved me out the door - almost literally - at 5:25pm. Those guards really want to go home.

I felt like I might enjoy something light-hearted, so I hiked down to Times Square, and bought myself a ticket to Spamalot. Granted, I got there pretty late, so I ended up about two thirds of the way up the balcony (literally above the clouds. They have a flock of little fluffy Terry Gilliam clouds above the stage. I was sitting well above them).

A wonderfully wacky show. Clay Aiken actually did a damn fine job of playing Brave Sir Robin - including a line about becoming "the idol of the age".

There were a number of places where they deviated from the cast album a bit to update the references. They even threw in an Eliot Spitzer joke that to all appearances left Arthur not quite sure what to say.

A lot of fun.

After the show, I dropped by Junior's again for what was supposed to be a comparatively light meal of a sandwich and a slice of cheesecake. I forgot exactly how much meat they put in their sandwiches...

And then I crawled back to the apartment. That was about 12:30am. Then I watched a couple more episodes of Project Runway with Debbie, did some of the usual relatively useless surfing, and am trying to get this done before I collapse in a heap.

Good night.

  • Stuff

    I have another little batch of new songs, this time some requests, but also several that just seemed interesting. The track count is up to 24,153,…

  • Yet More

    I've added a significant chunk of new songs. Granted, quite a few are from "Kiss Me, Kate", but hey. Take a look. There are a few very old requests…

  • A Fair Chunk

    I've added a reasonable chunk of new songs, mostly requests, some of them quite old. Take a look! The track count is up to 24,083, and the unique…
