Hey there... sorry, it's been "one of those days". No, that's a lie. It's been one of those WEEKS! With Monday off for Grampy's internment, I am still feeling suprisingly stressed out. BIG company that I am interested in working for called me back to meet with Head Honcho #2. It went well, I think. I am always so nervous in these things, like they are going to check my DNA or pull up an FBI file on me, or something!
Phantom of the Opera, Boston Opera House, Boston, MA
We saw this on Sunday, the matinee. It was unbelievable! Even PC managed to stay awake. (still suprising, since it was a love story, moves kind of slow ) So, the soprano that sang the part of Christine was amazing and well, the Phantom.... he gave me chills. Overall, a great performance. If you are in Boston, near Boston or looking for a reason to see Boston, I highly recommend this. Even if you are just going to ogle the newly restored theater. :) Some good ogle-ing to be had!
Morton's, THE steakhouse, Corner of Boyslton and Exeter, Boston MA
OH MY GOSH! I am NOT a a carnivore by any means. PC is, but anyone who knows PC knows, he's a carnivore... he even eats ducks. *shudder* So, when he suggested a post-dinner meal at Mortons (the most $$$ place in Boston... and that's saying a lot, b/c we love to eat here in Boston), I said "sure". I wanted to try it but was thinking "they'll have fish". Well, I had the most perfect gin-and-tonic, great broiled scallops in bacon, and a filet of oskar (a filet mignon, split, topped with a log cabin of asparagus and the cabin houses lump crab meat).... I have to say, a good close 2nd to sex. I don't care what anyone says... NOTHING is better than sex, right honey? :) *wink, wink, nudge, nudge* ha ha ha I also had a Godiva hot chocolate cake for dessert. Once home, I immediately slipped into a food coma.
So, back to knitting and stuff... well, I worked on the zippy hoodie for my brother's gf, but it's stockinette and I never added pockets.... oh, that sounds whiny. Hmm... well, I will work on it tonight, I promise! Her b-day is next week and I need to knit quickly. It'll rain this weekend and PC needs to watch something called the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), so knitting will be done.
I know, I have been promising some pictures and I am going to work on that over the next two weeks also. Computer access right now is only at work, so it could get tricky.
