While it may contain some potentially troubling subject matter (Read: Gay salsa dancers wearing phallic fruit hats, Copious fingering of the crowd, masturbatory gestures, and more English curse words than I knew existed)it only serves to solidify the "Monty-Phython-ness" of it all.
At the end of the show the crowd is encouraged to sing along to "The Bright Side of Life" (posted) and then gets showered with a crap load of confetti. Pretty rad show, all in all - if you have a free night and nothing to do, give it a go!

If you've ever been on the University campus, you will know that Campus 5-0 is always out and about. One might think that they are there simply to add to the general melee of the University, but it turns out they actually do serve some purpose.It all started when I needed to unload some boxes in our (alarmed) storage room downstairs. My swipe card opened the door no problem. I put in my code. Loud buzzing. I re-enter my code. Loud buzzing. I enter another code. Buzzing stops.
Thinking I've tamed the beast, I proceed to unload boxes, unperturbed. Suddenly the door flies open, and two campus security guards bust in. Turns out that my code is, in fact, incorrect. Due to my multiple code-punching, I set of the silent alarm and they're here to investigate, pepper spray at the ready. Upon explaining my identity & purpose in the room, and what I'm sure was a criminal records check, I am released with a warning.
Lesson for the Day: Never trust someone when they tell you you've been entered in the security system.

As we went camping this weekend, our dog, Muffin, came back smelling like campfire. It was time for a bath, much to her dismay, and the chaos that ensued afterwards is attached in video format. Basically, after you release her from her towel cocoon, she runs around the house like she's possessed for about an hour. She was not pleased with me, that's for certain.
I followed her under the bed and she really didn't like it very much. She let me know it too.

When I take the bus in the morning, often times I have the pleasure of sitting beside a smelly person. Last week, I had the treat of being sandwiched in between someone who smelled like hamsters and cigarette smoke. Today I was trapped behind someone who clearly hadn't showered or washed their clothes for, I don't know....a month?
I don't know what's worse, winter when you can't open a window to let out the stench, or summer when people are festering in their own odor.
So next time people, if you decide to leave the house smelling like old socks and halitosis, think again.

Exciting News! Mom and I have purchased "Season" Tickets to the Broadway series at the Jubilee Auditorium. We will be seeing the above three shows and have first grabs at Stomp and Cats as well. In addition, we will have the chance to renew for next year's season, which is when The Lion King is slated to come to Edmonton. (Without that option there would be little chance of getting a ticket to any of the Lion King shows.) Stay tuned for news on how the shows are!
