Whoa, hello, friends. WordPress has given me the option to try out this new editor and it is TRIPPY. There are so many different buttons and ways to edit your writing. I am confused! Has anyone else upgraded to the new editor?
I can make every first letter of a sentence huge.
See? Crazy, right? lol.
Yesterday, I went to Lion King the Musical!
There was a lot more commotion going on during this show more than any other I’ve been to so far. They even had pro photographers there to take your photo in front of a Lion King themed screen and instead of just this one souvenir stand like they usually have, there was an extra one on a higher level.
Before the show, boyfriend and I stopped at Starbucks. I got the biggest size Chestnut Praline frappucino with three shots of espresso. I slurped it down fast because we didn’t have that much time before I had to go in.
It was definitely a mistake though! I peed right when I got inside and the show started 20 minutes after I got into my seat. I realized I had to go AGAIN right as the lights dimmed. I suffered the whole first act because of my overactive bladder and I could barely enjoy the show. 😦 Then, after intermission, my bladder was settled for maybe only 20 minutes before I had to go yet again so basically, the whole entire musical I was holding my pee in!! It was horribly painful and I know, oh, so bad for me to do but I wanted to watch the show, damn it!
I did get to stop thinking about it for awhile because I was incredibly entranced and fascinated with the costumes. Some were a bit creepy but, they were all WAY more than I was expecting (in the best way!). The set was so unique and fun, too.
Kiddo Simba (Joziyah Jean-Felix) and Older Simba (Brandon A. McCall) were both such lively actors. I loved how much energy both of them always had; how he jumped about and owned the whole stage. My favorite song was by far Older Simba’s solo, Endless Night, and my second favorite was by him and Rafiki, the He Lives In You (Reprise).
Of course, I was also a fan of Timon (Nick Cordileone) and Pumbaa (Ben Lipitz). Timon’s costume was a little weird… with the green man… but, I really liked Pumbaa’s! So creative! Oh gosh, and I can’t forget how many times Zazu had me crackin’ up! Let’s just say, the whole cast was spectacular!
The musical, itself, didn’t stray away from the movie’s story line at all. Every part of the movie seemed to be included and nothing much was altered besides the addition of a few little jokes here and there about tweeting and social media.
Overall, I thought the show was really thought out, the singing was phenomenal, and the cast, like I said, was specatactular. I do think there could have been a few more exclusive-to-the-musical songs added in though.
I also felt like I could have enjoyed it a LOT more if my bladder wasn’t misbehaving… Of course, I wished the whole time that the show would go faster so I could relieve myself and that’s just NOT how I want to feel, y’know?
After the show, boyfriend picked me up. I heated up some leftovers from dinner because I was hungry again. I started a new show on Hulu called Star. I had watched the last episode of UnREAL right before we left for Starbucks and the musical. I am already hooked on this Star show now. It is GOOD!
Today, we both woke up around 01:30 PM and just laid in bed for a bit. I read some of Heart Recaptured while boyfriend watched his fave Twitch folk.
We went to the library to renew and print out my business license. We do have a printer at home but, our ink ran out and I feel like that’s a hell of a lot of money to spend on more when we barely print anything out anyways… plus, it’s fun to go to the library once in awhile. 😉
After that, we just came home and I took a shower while boyfriend started cooking dinner. When I got out, I started watching some more of the Star show on the TV. Dinner was delicious and I baked some Sweet Loren’s cookies afterwards.
We made some hot coffee to drink with it and I watched another episode (or was it two?) of Star.
I decided it was time to start writing this so here I am. 🙂 My cold has finally vanished and boyfriend’s all better now, too! We’re both going back to work tomorrow. Yaaaaaay…. lol.
