All of the second act scenes, which were set in a Pasha's palace, looked like the inside of a jewelry box with the theater as the gold and white box. Carrie and Bakthurel looked great together, Arianna looked bored as she always does when playing the peacock. PNB really needs to get the first act cleaned up, though. There's just too many damn kids on stage and the action lacks a focus. But it cracked me up when the curtain dropped at the end and I could hear the ballerinas screaming with excitement that it was ALL OVER for the year.
Meanwhile I'm still not very focused at work yet. I forgot all of my log ins and the various file locations while I was gone, as well as some of the standard testing procedures we had set up before I left like when to do status updates. But my commute times have been fabulous thanks to the low holiday traffic. Today I made it here in 25 minutes, and measured the distance door to door as 21.9 miles. I cooked out!
Tomorrow I'm planning on eating ham and black eyed peas, and making soap with BecBec. In the evening we're going to see the Korean movie that's playing at the Crest. Thursday is happy hour at the Comet with Stephanie at 6:30. Friday could be Spin the Bottle but I might be over that now.
Here's my little ditty for work today (to Journey's "Don't Stop Believing"):
"Don't crash my machine, hold on to that data -ah -ah -ah
"Don't show the blue screen, whoa-oh-ohhhhhh ..."
