Wicked Guests

Look who came into town!  That's right.  Dotty & Stacey!!!  Dotty = my our cute niece and Stacey = Gty's cute sister/my cute SIL.  Poor Blane (cute BIL) couldn't come but we managed to enjoy ourselves anyway. 


What is the reason for the visit, you ask?  Behold the photo below and see if you can guess.

 

WICKED is in town and Stacey has been dying to see it.  It just so happened that SolidGold had been so kind as to get us tickets as well for a fun group date with some other friends (The Poels) so it worked out perfectly!  Stacey got her ticket for the same night as us and hitched a ride down as the 7th wheel to our triple date. 

 
Here we are in our seats.  We were about 8 rows from the front and off to the left a little.  They were great.  I could even see some spit coming out of the Wonderful Wizard's mouth as he spoke sometimes.  Oh, side note...guess who our Wizard was.... Larry from Three's Company!  Who knew he could sing?


 

I have been a huge fan of Wicked for just over a year now.  My other SIL gave me the CD and I listened to it non-stop for months.  I knew every song but had never seen the actual performance.  It was uber hard not to sing along.  I am in awe of these people's talents.  What would it be like to stand on a stage and belt out songs the way they do?  Mind boggling.    I highly recommend Wicked to anyone (shocker!).  It's funny, clever, great music and Gty even loved it.

I also highly recommend having Stacey & Dotty come and stay at your house!  Dotty is the cutest dang thing ever & I got to see a little of what Beebs will be like as a babysitter.  She was diligent in following Dotty around and making sure she wasn't getting into too much trouble.   I had made the grievous mistake of telling Beebs they were coming a good week in advance.  Why do I do this to myself over and over?  She then asked EVERY DAY if that was they day they were getting here.  You'd think I'd learn fhs (that's for you Markie). 

PS 14 more days to SF!!!!!!

First, I look like I have a leg-arm in that picture.
Second, I'm glad to hear "even Gty loved it"!!! Next ward talent show I fully expect you and Gty to sing "as long as your mine".
Third, we are totally seeing it again when it comes to Denver.

Memzy said...

Wait. Was it NOT in Denver this time?

Landee said...

First, you do not look like you have a leg-arm...well, does the calf count? ::teehee::

Second, we are in rehearsals now.

Third, I will see Wicked with you every time it comes to Denver for the rest of my life. It's now set in stone. Even if we have a falling out, like, if you really offend me or something. We still have to go to Wicked. Next time I'm not gonna restrain myself and I will sing every song in your ear.

Memz... it was in Denver. Theater District even. I didn't even know we HAD a theater district.

Landee...the coat, the bag. Hot. Srsly.

Next time, I want to elbow my way in and tag along. I LOVE WICKED!

StandsMom said...

Oh - P.S. Sassy was sad that she didn't get to play with Dotty. I don't know why, but she was really concerned about her being at your house, and how long and when she would be leaving. When I told her that Dotty wouldn't be there today - she said, "What about that other girl? Stacey?" And, I wish I could have watched Beebs with Dottie. Way cute.

I love your coat.

You know I don't really need to comment here since you already know my feelings on this Wicked business.

I have an apron that says "wicked good cook" with the silhouette btw, I know you are all jealous.

Defying Gravity was one of the most exciting moments of my life btw.

That's Wicked awesome!

I'm SO excited about being Photoshopped with you gize in SF!! Srsly, can't wait.
fhs.

Annie said...

Great...more reasons to hate you.

Jenny ESP said...

I hate your guts too. But I love how you gize got all gussied up to see Wicked. Tony and I looked like two drowned rats who had crawled up from the sewer when we saw it. No exaggeration. I never dress up for that crap, but I looked particularly bad when we saw Wicked.

I can't get enough of Dotty. I just wanna say her name. Dotty.

Landee said...

Annie, I'm sure what you meant to say was "Oh great, NOW I have to start hating you." Or something. Uh, right?

And Jespy, not only did we get gussied up but SolidGold changed her outfit 3 times. The first shirt/slacks ensemble was apparently deemed "too Ellen Degeneres." And the 2nd "too boring." She keeeels me.
