and so shall I! Once my head hits that pillow the love affair w/the sandman with begin, no foreplay or nothing just st8 to sleep, I know it! Pooka has already started her journey, she didn't make it to her room! Took her shoes off at the door and layed on the couch. Snoring as I type! LOL
So lets shorten up a great 2 days shall we?
Friday: Went to work at the fair, picked Pooka up from school and went st8 back to the fairgrounds for pleasure. Me, being the smart woman I am, got a stamp on my hand when I left the fairgrounds so when I came back I didn't have to pay. Well while at Pooka's school I had to let them know that she was a car rider today so they wouldn't put her on the daycare van. The ladies room called while I was in the office, so I went and followed proper procedure by washing my hands of the germs...and the fair stamp! Great! So now I gotta pay 6 bucks to get back in, or so I thought. We get to the ticket line and this young guy asked me if I had a ticket. I told him "no, I'm sorry" thinking that he was trying to find a cheaper ticket or something and then dude breaks out with a ticket and gives it to me! Cha Ching! I wish I could say that he gave it to me because of my dashing good looks, but he probably just had a tickets that he'd been trying to sell and just decided to give them away. We get in and walk around and around and around doing the whole fair thing, go home and sleep.
Saturday: Went in early to work at the office to make up time that I am going to miss Monday because of a study session w/Dr. Hype. Being that we have our 2nd test Thursday, I really need to be there. Went from work to Pooka's friends b-day party at the movie theater. We saw Cars. I don't know if Cars is out on DVD yet but I am buying it, it was a good movie. Everyone from all ages got a chuckle or 3 out of the movie. It was funny talking to the little white boys mom because she was telling me that he talks about Pooka all the time and basically does to her what Pooka does to me. LOL! His mom kept referencing them as "the couple". I didn't mind it nor the grandmother, but dad gave me the vibe like he wasn't feeling his son interacting with chocolate! Even at this completely innocent stage. The beautiful thing about kids is that they just want to play and hang out, they don't care about color. Racism is taught. But that's another blog for another day maybe.
The little boys grandmother was there and was making chit chat with me which was fine. The only part that made me laugh on the inside was that during conversation the Lion King came up and I mentioned we were going to see it tonight and the grandma was like "isn't that an older movie?" I told her the movie was dated but the play just came to Raleigh. First she was surprised that the show came here *she is from CA* and then she was surprised that WE were going to see it. What-ever. The party was fun and Pooka had a great time.
When we got home I suggested her taking a nap. I had yet to tell her we were going to the play. She waited till about 30 minutes b4 I wanted to leave out to want to take a nap. I let her sleep about 15 minutes, LOL. We get there and I see my ex-girl and her friend whose name I've literally already forgotten, we all get introduced, and other than her asking me if I spoke with LadyKat since she left for NY that was about it for conversation. Before the show started she was engaged in convo with her friend, wonderful!!! The 15 minute intermission was kinda awkward because her friend went out to do whatever and I just fake read the program and messed with Pooka a bit. At the end of the show she did say something about having a party for Ladykat's job ending or something like that. They are sending LadyKat's job to Brazil at the end of the month so after this week she will be unemployed. I really wasn't listening to what ex-friend was saying but I figure LadyKat will fill me in on whatever she was talking about later if I am supposed to be there.
Now the actual show itself was simply magnificent! The singing, the music, the props, the special effects, the dancers, the costumes...ohh man the costumes were AWESOME! I can't even describe just how wonderful this production was put together! It's definitely worth every penny those folks asked for ticket prices! When the show was over Pooka asked if we could watch it again and the people who heard her got a chuckle out of it. I really wish we could see it again. All the weekend shows are sold out and I can't have Pooka out this late on a school night, so we both just have to wallow in our memories. I'd definitely recommend it to anyone of any understandable age. Pooka loved it just as much as I did!
The only thing I can't figure out is proper dress code for these things. Some people were in black tie attire and I saw some folks in jeans. Both to me in this situation is DEAD WRONG. Pooka and I both had on dress pants and blouse w/flat dress shoes because it is/was simply too cold for a skirt. I don't know. I don't go to these things often enough to know what is proper. Like the ex-friend, she had on a pink tee shirt and pink capris w/sneakers!!!! HUH? At least her friend had on casual short sleeved shirt and long skirt. I don't know what folks be thinking!
Well off to bed, Thanks for coming by and reading!
