Assassins, Company and a Night at the Museum...

Last Saturday, I got an early morning phone call from Liz. She needed a car sitter (a person to make sure her car didn't get towed because of parking on the street.)

She had to fly out to her brother's asap - ongoing medical issues and the choice he was facing was to have emergency surgery which may or may not work, but otherwise the outlook was bleak.

Happily, he's doing better then expected after surgery! Liz' sister will staying up there to care for him for now and Liz will be flying home today.

Saturday afternoon, herefox, his coworker Joelle and I saw a local rep production of Stephen Sondheim's Assassins at The Eureka Theatre in SF. T'was a very *interesting* experience. I've heard bits of the musical before, but the songs take on a very different meaning in context with the show. Unworthy of Your Love?

It was unnerving to have a gun pointed at you and "look down the barrel". A very dark show with bits of nervous laughter (from the audience) thrown in. Actually, more than bits.

The character of Charles Guiteau (assassin of McKinley) was extremely well played by Greg Sottolano (OMG those eyes were so eerie). *squick*

On Tuesday, herefox and I went to see Company on the big screen at the Bluelight Theatre in Cupertino. T'was packed. First few minutes of the show was interrupted by two women arguing over who had the seats in the row in front of us first.

Fun show! Especially cute was the scene where Bobby's friend comes on to him. Hee!

Tonight, me and the kidlets are doing the sleepover at the Slither in Summer at the Academy (aka Penguins and Pajamas). There will be stuff to do from 6pm Saturday until 8am Sunday. Penguins, Snakes, Planetarium, and exploring the museum until 11pm (bedtime).

Breakfast with the kidlets in a bit...
