Back from Vegas

Well, I made it back from Vegas and still had a little cash left in my pocket! Not really a gambler as Lori will testify to. Won some "stuff" though. A cute white tiger and a denim jacket from Riviera Casino! Woo Hoo! Barry Manilow's show wasn't half bad either. Talk about screaming women, yikes! We managed to do a lot together while we were there. Saw a bunch of shows, including a great magic show. Lori thinks the magician was firting with me. Well, he did sign my poster after the show :-)
Did the whole Star Trek Experience as well as the behind the scenes tour. That was really cool. I almost got a job there as a character, but then we discovered it was non-union. Ah well. So close, yet so far.
Now it's time to get ready for the holidays. LOTS of wrapping to do. Lots of cookies to bake. We can honestly say that all our shopping is done! Yea! We'll be hosting my family for Christmas Eve dinner. We started this tradition a few years ago and we love it. We feature a different country each year. This year it's Ireland! Always a treat to make the nephews try something new! If they don't try it, they don't get presents. I know, mean Uncles! But hey, it works.
Well, I know I won't have a chance to blog before Chrsitmas, so Happy Holidays to everyone and a Happy Prosperous New Year! Posted by Picasa

Good Show!

Had a great time last night. Saw a wonderful production of "Oliver" at Olney Theatre. My good friend Monica was in it and I must say, WOW what a fabulous voice (not to mention what a great actress). Very impressive girl! A few other friends were in it as well, though I didin't get to see all of them.
Got to see Tomasin and Larry too. That's always a bonus.
Working at the hospital tonight and I hope I make it home before the snow. Then it's off to Vegas on Saturday. WOO HOO!

Santa, Lori and Me

Well, as you can see we really did sit on Santa's lap! Of course it was wierd that Sanata insisted that I sit on his lap. Then he asked me to put my arm around his shoulder. I was trying not to put all my weight on him so he told me to relaxe!Then just as the picture was being taken....his hand is on my butt! Yes, I got a little Christmas Goose early. Of course he wanted to know what I wanted for Christmas. After that, what could I say? I just laughed.
Ah, Christmas.... Posted by Picasa

Vegas, Baby!

Well I can't believe it but I'm heading to LasVegas this weekend! My best friend Lori has won tickets to a Barry Manilow concert. Yes, that's right Barry Manilow. She's a huge fan, I ...well, I like most of his music. So, we're flying out of Phildaelphia (she lives in Delaware) on Saturday morning. We'll be staying at the Las Vegas Hilton for three nights! The concert is on Monday and tapeing for a PBS special. The only other time I was in Las Vegas was for my 40th birthday. Andrew took me and we had a great time. This will actually be the first time Lori and I have traveled completely alone. This should be fun and maybe we could get into trouble. We'll have to keep an eye on each other. I'm not really a big gambler, but it would be nice to win some extra cash for the holidays!!
Lori and I had a wonderful time, as usual on our annual holiday shopping day last week. Can we say TAX FREE SHOPPING!!!! Gotta love shopping in Delaware! W even did something we've said we were going to do for years. We had our picture taken with Santa. Pretty cool for a Jewish woman and a 43 year old man! Not to mention I was "goosed" by Santa while sitting on his lap. When I figure out how to scan my picture for postin I'll be sure to put it here. Very funny!
Planning to get out to see "A Christmas Story" out at Wayside soon. We're going to try for the 21st.
Tomorrow night heading out to see Monica in "Oliver" out at Olney. Funny, but all the times I've auditioned there, I've never actually seen a show there! Should be fun and we're meeting up with Thomisin and Larry. Should be fun!!!
