It's Hairspray!

On Saturday I went to the city to see Hairspray with Grace, her mother and sister-in-law and the girls from their church... It was fantastic! I must admit I liked the stage show way better than the movie! I can't help it, it is in my blood... The theater was beautiful and we actors were awesome! The best performers in my opinion were Little Inez, Link, and Motormouth... The others were fantastic, don't get me wrong, I just felt like these three stole the show whenever they opened their mouths to sing :)... Afterwards we walked 8 blocks to the Cheesecake Factory (they wanted to drive, but after paying $20 for each of our 3 cars to park near the theater I vetoed driving and offered people flip flops and flats that I had in my car so we could walk)... It was nice when we walked over after the matinee, but after a 2 hour wait for a table for 13 and poor service, we didn't leave until like 9... We got some very unnecessary attention walking back... But Grace's mother-in-law said, "They don't want to mess with me and my bolsa (purse), I could hurt someone with it!" I cracked up! It was a great day and I felt special getting to be there when Grace shared her special news with her in-laws and the other girls...

Househunting, Babybunting, Workwanting...

Mr. Loo and I have begun house hunting in the past couple of months... We have been outbid on 3 or 4 houses... I guess it is because we have not yet been preapproved... We are in the process, but I am missing some W-2's from '06 when I did not file taxes because I didn't make enough to bother... I have to find them in my massive amounts of paperwork unceremoniously "stored" (read: dumped) in boxes on my porch... I think my organizer needs to come pay me a visit... We have 2 bids in, on on a house with a dinky pool that needs refinishing, and one that is a house away from my best gal pal, Grace (I have given up on code names... They are dumb)... Speaking of which... Grace just spilled the news... She and her hubby of 10 months are expecting their first little one! They got married less then a month after we did and decided to start trying about a month after we did... and yet, they beat us to the punch... Lol... Not that it is any big competition (okay, yes it is... Mr.Loo and Grace's hubby compeate over everything, and so do Grace and I...) But we are so happy for them! Just gives us a reason to try somemore ;)... I also decided to apply for a second job since my first does not offer many hours (about 10 a week scheduled and opportunity for more with call in shifts where we have to basically assume we are scheduled unless the store has not made enough revenue for the day to afford us)... So I will be working with Grace but in a different department... I think I start sometime this week but I don't know if they have scheduled me yet... I have been getting migraines a lot more often, so I am not sure how this is going to work, but we shall see... I've decided to make this blog public esq since I haven't written anything too terrible in it... At present no one knows much about it... I like it when I know the people at least know about it and can read it if they want to...

He's There, The Phantom of the Opera

Just a quick post tonight... Went to see Phantom with two of my best gals and their guys... It was amazing! Loved the Phantom, Christine was okay, Meg could have been better, but who am I to judge, they put on a fantastic show! Went to dinner before and to dessert at this fab little dinner that only serves desserts... So much fun, I only wish all of our friends had gone, I felt bad talking about it when other people who hadn't responded to me quick enough when we were buying tickets were around... I loved every minute of tonight (well, except for the part where the girls had to take off the heels and run 6 blocks in 4 minutes to make curtain)... All in all a fantastic night...

A Lappy of My Very Own!

So Mr. Loo and I have been married for about 11 months now, and in those 11 months we have had a reoccurring battle over the use of his laptop... So yesterday he finally got me one of my own! Yay! Not the most romantic early anniversary present, but a quite thoughtful and useful one... It's a 14" HP and it has a built in web cam (so I can finally respond to my friend kito's video posts), it can play WoW (of most importance), and it is slim, shiney, and cute (also uber important, every thing must be kawaii)... I am hoping that this will also help me get organized a little better... On another tangent, I hired an organzation coach and she came and helped me get the hardest room in our apartment for me to clean, our bedroom, clean and uncluttered... It's very zen... but it took 3 hours and $150... I'd like her to come this week so we could keep moving, but after dropping the cash for my lappy yesterday I don't think we can for a bit... We put a bid on a house yesterday and we have to have the $ in da bank for the deposit... On another tangent, I am not sure this is the house for us, so I am officailly hoping that our bid is not chosen so we don't waste money on inspections just to pull out because of what we already know, the roof is in bad need of replacing and it will make getting an FHA loan impossible... Gay... Anyways, I love my laptop, I am trying to get organized, and I want a house that gives me butterflies, not one that I can barely remember.... WE shall see what happens...
