Gammage Outings

It's been a while since I last blogged, but I'm finally sitting around and not supposed to do anything, so here goes! I've always been interested in musicals, but never actually been to one. So this year Becky has opened my eyes to them. For Christmas we bought tickets to 5 plays at Gammage:

So far we've seen Spring Awakening, The Lion King, and Rent, and we're definitely looking forward to Stomp and Wicked.

Spring Awakening:
This one has an awesome soundtrack - highly recommended. We had never heard of it before buying the tickets, but the reviews all say it was the Rent of this generation, and it won a bunch of Tony awards, so we figured it had to be good. It did not disappoint.

The Lion King:
I didn't like this one quite as much as Spring Awakening, but the costumes were amazing. It was a bit of a different type of musical, so tough to compare. Had a lot of fun though.

This one has been the best by far. We actually got to see the original Mark and Roger, which was awesome. I think Spring Awakening could be as good as Rent with the right cast, but the cast for Rent had much higher intensity - they really played the parts well. After the play I bought Becky a playbill signed by the entire cast.

Stomp is in May, and Wicked in July, so if anyone wants to join us let me know!

2 x 2 = 8... but how?

So how can you get 8 out of 2 x 2? Well, let me tell you. Some of you probably already got the email I sent out last night, but for those who didn't, this is the opportunity of a lifetime. Becky and I are doing the Climb to Conquer Cancer, and we need your donations! It's for a great cause, so please do what you can, whether it's $1, $5, or $100 - anything helps.

You may be asking yourself, "why should I donate on your behalf instead of just donating straight to the organization later on?" Well, I'll tell you why. My company (Deckers Outdoor Corporation) will match any funds I raise. That's right, so if 2 of you give just $2 each, that doesn't mean $4, it actually nets $8. But let's think bigger, how about if 20 of you give 20 bucks? $400 you say? Nay! That'll net $800 once Deckers matches!

Fantastic! So get to it! Donate Here

Thanks in advance!

Is that red hair on your chest?

Well, I recently acquired a Total Gym. I hear that every rep on this thing spawns a new red hair somewhere on your body... Maybe someday my legs can be named Law and Order. I should be looking like this in no time, and in the spirit of the subject, here a few Chuck Norris facts:
  1. There is no 'ctrl' button on Chuck Norris's computer. Chuck Norris is always in control.
  2. Chuck Norris destroyed the periodic table, because he only recognizes the element of surprise.
  3. Chuck Norris can blow bubbles with beef jerky.

Kicking it Off - Indebted.

I created this blog because I forget things. Becky will agree, I am always forgetting stuff, but only short term. So I figure if I write about it I'll be less likely to forget. Now that that's out of the way, here goes the first entry.

An interesting concept was brought to my attention this week. If you owe someone money, you have instant leverage. Think about it, you've got their attention, they'll listen to your every word as long as you're holding what they want, even though you already owe them. In fact, someone who never responds to you when you try to get in contact with will actually contact you, then you can say what you want! I just think it's an interesting concept - not saying anyone should use the leverage often, but if the opportunity presents itself, what a great tool.
