I think I agreed to go to Wicked with Christine in January and since it was so far in advance, I had kinda forgotten about it, well the exact date, so when I bought by prebook sale ticket for LA Candy, I didn't realize it was on the same night! Oops!! So Wednesday ended up being a busy day..after preWicked partying for about 45 minutes, I was off to meet LC and get my book signed. Tami and I got there about 15 minutes before the signing started and it was already packed! Mainly by girls about 10-15 years younger than us, heck we were the age of some of the mom's there! Oh well, we still had fun. I like doing random things like that. We were in group B and only had to wait about 7 minutes.
We were not supposed to take pictures when we were in line, but I did anyway, and while taking the second one, I knocked over a display of books..oops! Let me tell you, and you can't tell in the pictures, but LC is tiny!! Her arms and shoulders seems so skinny. On her show she seems in shape and normal sized, but no, in person she is little! Well Tami and I got up there and I said, "Welcome to Memphis", she said thanks. I asked if she got to try any bbq since she arrived, she asked one of her publishers/assistants and they told her they tried Rendezvous. She said she liked it. I told her we were on our way down that way to see Wicked, and she replied, "Is that a cool club?" We explained it was the Broadway play, Wicked...And I think our time was up after that..I'm kinda bummed I didnt get any better pictures.
Once we got downtown, we got a drink at Majestic and hurried in for the show. Wicked was awesome!! It was so cool to hear the story behind the Wizard of Oz. It explained a lot of things. I will say it was pretty girlie, it was all about friendship and when I was explaining it all to Tony, I think he was glad it ended up being a girls night. So glad Christine got this all together for us! I costumes were beautiful, the acting, dancing and singing was amazing!

in Neyland Stadium. My brother Kamron waited in line at West Town mall for days it seemed, again I was 7, that was 25 years ago. The concert was in August. I remember it was huge that I got to go. Tickets were a whopping $31, and at that time it seemed so much. My family teases me that I fell asleep at some point in the concert, yep not much energy I guess at 7 years old. I had a major crush on him as everyone did and emulated his dance moves. He was one of the best performers I have ever seen, its so shocking that he is gone. We are glued to the CNN coverage, but have to catch some of the NBA draft to see what the Grizzlies do...wow!! This doesn't even seem real.
OMG! Why did I not see this when it first came out!? Tony and I both loved it. Its based on a true story and the acting is amazing. Eric Bana is hot as the King! ..and its some crazy family drama, this story could totally be told in 2009 and made current.
Ok, yes we watched Ninja Cheerleaders! When I Tivoed it I read Trishelle's name and thought, what the heck, let's see what this is. Well its 3 college freshman that are cheerleaders and strip so they can get money to go to a better college, and at night they are ninjas. Bad acting, stupid story line, but like a train wreck we kept watching!

Yes, good looking guys, but to beat T.O!?! Who I thought was one of the best athletes around...crazy! Tony we forsure aren't drafting him in our Fantasy Football league, he did us wrong last year as it was...Unbelievable!

Diane's Review: Arnold's was an average barbeque restaurant. I had the sandwich. The sandwich was adequate and I ate it. It had too much sauce on it. I would give the place a 3. The best thing about Arnold's was my birthday party. It was great to be with everyone on my birthday. The gifts and the cheesecake were great.
Tony's Review: I had the ribs plate with slaw and beans. The ribs were actually really good.I don't think that they were smoked, I think they were baked, then grilled, butI didn't mind it this time. The slaw and beans were good as well, just average, I did like the sauce too. The service was great. I don't remember exact details on flavor or seasoning, so that isn't a great sign, but I don't remember anything bad, so, I give Arnold's a 3 out of 5.

Wow, this story makes me soooo happy! According to the family that is rehabbing Patron, he is a wonderful dog! So many dogs deserve this, and this family, the Kain's are wonderful to have done this! Kudos to them!! It just makes me happy that an NFL athlete cared about his dog so much he didn't want to give up on him, when there is so much negative media going on with the worst dog owner on the planet, Michael Vick. I know lots of NFL guys that have Pits and are responsible owners with children. This was just a nice story that I have enjoyed following.

A typical night on our couch..Do your dogs have a special spot? Well this corner has always been Lennox's, well atleast when we aren't sitting there, and even when we do, the last picture is what we get. So now this is Lane's spot too. Atleast they share! Lennox does most of the time get the prime angle on the end so he can prop up his legs and look around the corner if someone is coming in the door.
