Wicked

I have to admit, getting back into the groove of the work-thing was difficult. I was barely able to make it out of bed this morning. Nothing much going on this week, so not much motivation to get up. I did however forget to mention the release of Breaking Dawn in my motivations for last week. That was a biggie. I finally finished it last night, probably making me the slowest reader of the book among all the fans. But hey, I was in New York City, I had a good excuse. It was amazing, just as expected; excellent ending and just how a reader wants to end such a great series.



Anyhow, I am going to fight against my urge to shower you with Breaking Dawn quotes and instead go against the expected. In mourning for the one thing I wasn't able to do in NYC, here's your quote of the day from the musical Wicked (Charlie was kind enough to burn me the CD and I haven't been able to listen to anything else ever since first inserting it into my car's CD player).


I'm Not That Girl


ELPHABA:


Hands touch, eyes meet
Sudden silence, sudden heat
Hearts leap in a giddy whirl
He could be that boy
But I'm not that girl


Don't dream too far
Don't lose sight of who you are
Don't remember that rush of joy
He could be that boy
I'm not that girl


Ev'ry so often we long to steal
To the land of what-might-have-been
But that doesn't soften the ache we feel
When reality sets back in


Blithe smile, lithe limb
She who's winsome, she wins him
Gold hair with a gentle curl
That's the girl he chose
And Heaven knows
I'm not that girl


Don't wish, don't start
Wishing only wounds the heart
I wasn't born for the rose and the pearl
There's a girl I know
He loves her so
I'm not that girl

it is quite clear that you are a big fan of wicked. I hope I like it as much as you

I am going to see it next week I just bought tickets on http://www.broadwaybox.com/shows/wicked_nyc_tickets.aspx for the show. Saved my behind since they were sold out on ticketmaster. On BroadwayBox I entered the dates I was going to be in the big apple and it searched a bunch of brokers and told me what kinda tickets were out there to buy (even marked them off on a seating chart to find the best value) in the end I bought tickets for the same prices as ticketmaster.

I'm sooo excited!!!!!
