Green babies rule!

Josh and I went out this afternoon for his company's 'holiday' party and I have to say that it was one of the better ones that we've been to.

We started off by seeing Wicked, which I really enjoyed but I don't think I can say the same for Josh. He's more into Shakespeare and Shaw than plays like this. It's not that it was *bad*, it was just different. I can honestly say that the first half seemed to drag a bit, but the second half was far better. I'll probably go and get the soundtrack one of these days as well. If you remember, I bought the book a few weeks ago but I didn't crack the spine on it...yet.

During the intermission I was *really* tempted to go and get a souvenir. I saw this cute little onesie which was for ages 12-18 months, but I held off. How cute is THAT?! I love the word "Wicked" printed across the bum. At some point next year or in '08, I'm going to have to buy that... ;)

After the play we headed over to a local restaurant for dinner. The food was ok, but there was a major screw-up in the kitchen. While almost all of the tables got their food, the table directly behind us didn't get their food until all the others were finished. Oops.

There was one couple at our table who had "babysitter" issues and left as soon as they finished the last morsel of food. They literally jumped out of their seat as soon as his wife swallowed her last strand of spaghetti and ran out of the restaurant. I have more than a sneaking suspicion that they just wanted to get out of there. ;)

We sat around and talked to people at our table for a while, but as soon as Josh and I got up and said we were leaving, they all grabbed their coats and ran for the door. Was it something we said?!

No, since Josh has a managerial position in the company everyone was taking their cue from him. I guess if they figured he was leaving then it was ok for them to leave as well; so we all left en masse.

For those of you that remember this post, I have a bit of an update.

Go on, click the link, I'll wait.

Are you done? Ok, then I'll continue...

We've been very strict about not spending any loonies or toonies when we get them in our change and put them all in the jar at the end of the day. We're also depositing X number of dollars in the account tomorrow as well, so we're going to have a tidy little sum by the time this little 'hayride' is over. ;)

I've read the book and let me tell you it's quite different from the play, a lot darker. That onesie is so cute.

Congrats on saving the cash. Putting away the change is the best way to do it.

That onesie is super cool!

Glad you had a good time at the show!

We tried a money jar for Jade, but we keep stealing from it. Pathetic, I know....

No one mourns the wicked!

I cannot believe that you got that much money off of coins. You folks rock.
