I got this survey from Alli's blog. Her excuse for filling it out is to try to bring on sleep. My excuse is that I am FIGHTING sleep.

Have a Peepy Easter

Happy Easter! Although I have to spend my Easter in a van for 6 hours, I hope you enjoy yours. Here's a little diversion for you. This is a perfect use for marshmallow peeps in my opinion, since I don't really like to eat them. CLICK HERE

"I Wish the Mall Could Be My Ringtone"

9:50 AM, Thursday, March 20, 2008 / Posted by Christy / comments (0)

I finally got to go out in Raleigh and I went on a slight spending spree. Well, it was one for me. It was St. Patrick's Day, and Alli, Genny, and I decided it would be appropriate to go to P.F. Chang. So, I spent some money on our family style dishes of orange peel chicken, Chang's chicken, and a really weird shrimp dish with melon and walnuts. Mmmm, nothing like Chinese food on an Irish holiday. Then we decided to walk around the mall, and I ended up buying a screen protector for my iPhone at the Apple store, where I also checked out the new MacBook Air. It really is the thinnest computer I've ever seen. It might be a nice accessory for my iPhone...maybe someday. I also got a Beatles t-shirt at Forever XXI. I really can't get enough Beatles wardrobe. Then I was convinced by the sales women at Victoria's Secret to buy a new bra. And those bras are not cheap. But I really did need a new one, so, there you have it. And the night was topped off with drinks and dessert at the Cheesecake Factory. It was a good night in Raleigh.

Now I'm back in New York again for THREE days off. I'm pretty excited. Today I'm doing nothing, which should be nice. Tomorrow I'm going to my friend Natalie's birthday party and also seeing Bo for the first time since we broke up. Yes, we did break up about a month ago. It didn't end badly. Bo just didn't really want a relationship. So, that was that. But I'm looking forward to seeing him tomorrow. We're going to go to dinner before the party. I'm thinking we're going to remain friends, which would be a first for me. I've never been friends with an ex. But I think we're going to have to stay friends otherwise things could get really awkward. I mean, I'm friends with his friends, we go to the same church, we live in the same neighborhood. We're still going see each other, so it may as well be pleasant when we do.

No Going Out, No Staying In

7:40 PM, Saturday, March 15, 2008 / Posted by Christy / comments (1)

I don't want to speak to soon, but it's starting to feel a little like spring! It's a bit warmer outside, I wore flip flops today, and I have a cold...yes, all sure signs of spring. We arrived in Raleigh, North Carolina today. It's the furthest south we're going on this tour, and since four people on tour are from the south, they all have family coming into town. So, with all this family togetherness, I might not have anyone to go out and actually see Raleigh with. Hopefully it will still work out to go out one night though.

I can't wait until real TV is back. The strike is over, and now I'm just waiting for the new episodes to start back up. Yes, there are new episodes of Lost, but there's only one of those left and then it will be off the air for a month! I mean, there's a competition show on right now called Your Mama Don't Dance. Really? Am I supposed to think this is an acceptable substitute for Grey's Anatomy?

Big news broke in the Harry Potter world this week. It had been rumored for a while, but now it's official. The final installment of the series, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, will be split into two movies! Each installment will probably be about two and a half hours long (according to producer David Haymen). That means that almost everything in the book will make it into the movies. I'm so excited!

My Sisters and I Remember That Winter...

3:30 PM, Tuesday, March 4, 2008 / Posted by Christy / comments (0)

I'm pretty excited about being on the east coast for the rest of this tour. The mid-west is nice, and we did find a few cool towns, but it's mostly all the same. And I had already been to every state we performed in. I haven't experienced as much of the east coast since I have never lived on it until I moved to New York. We just returned from Concord, Massachusetts where I was looking forward to finding something...colonial to do. I checked out wikipedia on my iPhone (it's so awesome!) and found out that we could take a tour of Orchard House, Louisa May Alcott's family home where she wrote Little Women.

It looks exactly like the Orchard House in the movie Little Women. See it in the background on the poster? The film makers must have visited the home and designed all the sets based on the real thing! Even though I love the book and the movie, I didn't know just how closely everything was based on Alcott's real life and family. I really enjoyed May's room, the youngest sister who Amy is based on. May was very artistic and loved to paint, just like Amy in the book. So, May painted all over her room and in several other places in the house. She painted an owl above the fire place in Louisa's room that I wished I could take home! I love owls! We couldn't take pictures inside the house, but the pictures I took outside are on flickr, so check them out!

I'm also excited today because I just found out there's a pretty good chance we'll be taking Junie B Jones to Alaska! Now that's a place I have definitely never been before. We would do shows in Fairbanks and Anchorage. The reason it's not a totally sure thing yet is because they have to extend our contracts by a couple weeks so we can go in mid-June. So, most of the actors would have to say yes to committing a little more time to Junie B Jones. Theatreworks can replace a couple actors, but not all of them. So, keep your fingers crossed that most of them will say yes!
