Hey babes 🙂 as promised, I’m back to talk about The Book of Mormon.
Inside of the playbills I get, there is usually a list of the songs, in order of when they’re sung on stage and separated between the two Acts. For this one, there was no such page so, I haven’t a clue what the songs were called.
I didn’t fancy any single one of them, anyways.
I even dozed off during a solo, like literally fell asleep, and almost fell down the whole balcony.
I’m not gonna lie, there were some jokes I did laugh at, even the Uganda people’s first song cracked me up (but, I felt pretty guilty afterwards) and the dance moves were quite hilarious. Admitting that I might sound like a ‘sensitive snowflake millennial‘ when I say this, I still have to come out with it… some of the jokes were downright offensive. I was often cringing and frowning!
I don’t have a bad word to say about the cast, they were all really talented and performed well in their roles. To me, Nubulungi played by Alyah Chanelle Scott, stood out the most. I loved her singing voice and her scenes were always my favorite.
I didn’t really understand the border set up on the stage and I still don’t. Even when the setting changed, the border stayed, it was like we were watching some obscure shaped TV the whole time.
The props, scenery, and backdrop were nicely made and beautiful to look at, I do commend them on that.
Maybe I missed something because I kept nodding off but, I do NOT understand the hype around this musical. Someone, please, explain to me WHY I was supposed to stand up and clap for this production. I feel completely out of the loop.
Also, that’s the LAST time I go to a musical without getting coffee first. I must wake up earlier and be more prepared for my next one!!
When boyfriend picked me up, we went straight home and just watched TV for the rest of the night. I got a coffee from McDonald’s because I wasn’t trying to go to sleep RIGHT away but, we still didn’t stay up for much longer…
On Wednesday, it was back to work for me. Boyfriend made an awesomely huge salad with salami, roast beef, red onions, red peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, wonton strips, and this new ginger dressing we were trying for the first time.
The dressing was a little salty but, not bad. I liked it and we even finished off the bottle earlier today– I just don’t think I’d buy it again.
Again, I drank a cocktail before leaving for work. There was literally NO ONE there, client-wise and dancer-wise. I was sad and lonely the whole time. 😦 I ended up leaving before 3 AM.
Thursday, I was really craving a Poke Bowl but, boyfriend’s not the biggest fan of them– he thinks they’re not filling enough. I knew if we went to China Town he could find something to eat elsewhere and I could get my Poke Bowl. In my Yelp Bookmarks, I found Pokeman, right next door to the Halal Guys… we had never been to either so it was just the perfect time to try them both. 🙂
First, we stopped in and ordered boyfriend a Beef Gyro with all the fixin’s he wanted and some crispy crinkle-cut fries. That pita bread was so fluffy and delicious, sticking to my teeth when I sunk them in. Mmm, mmm.
I checked into Yelp while the sandwich was being made and we were rewarded with a free Baklava dessert. 🙂 There was also a locals special for 10% off our order! Score!!!
Pokeman was just across the parking lot so boyfriend got his food wrapped up to-go and we walked on over.
The interior was super minimal with a touch of beachy, surfer vibes. There was a definite orange and white color scheme going on, too. I liked it a lot!!
For my bowl, I chose brown rice for the base and topped it with bay scallops, tuna, yellowtail, imitation crab, seaweed salad, spring mix salad, corn, red onions, red cabbage, shredded carrots, cucumbers, and wonton strips. For my dressing, I chose Miso Sesame then used their shakers for the little sesame seeds and the furikake for garnish. EVERYTHING was so fresh and tasty. The flavors all combined sooo well and none of the fish was slimy, smooshy, or too chewy. The sauce pulled everything together, making every single bite, the perfect one. I cannot wait to go back!!
After we ate, like we always do on my work days, we hit up Starbucks for our iced quad espressos. I know I drank a cocktail before work and probably at work, too. I can’t seem to remember the night as clearly though? I think it was better than Wednesday but, not as good as Monday.
I’ll be back again tomorrow with another Journal Entry, so I’ll talk to you again very soon. Right now, it’s getting late and I gotta start getting ready for work. 😛
Enjoy the rest of your weekend, my loves!!!! ❤
