An Afternoon at the Theater and a Stash Report


We scored some tickets to one of my most favorite bouts of madness, I mean, theater shows......Spam-A-Lot.

It is a take off of Camelot and crossed with the Monty Python's Holy Grail and has Frank's all time favorite song......Always Look On the Bright Side of Life. Ugh!  Now he will be singing it for a week!

And they nailed it!  Hilariously funny, I didn't even mind the singing!

#%&(***   I just missed the last few tickets of Rocky Horror Picture Show.  We go every year, but for some reason they sold out before I could get the tickets.  I know they always sell out,  I guess I didn't think about it early enough with my mother and all everything going on. 

Sigh.......How will I deal?

Stash Report:
Used this week 0 Used this month 0 Used this year -151
Bought this week 0 Bought this month 0 Bought this year 85.25
Plus or minus 0 Plus or minus 0 Plus or minus -65.75

I made 4 more backings but didn't finish any of the previous 5 to completion. I told Sweet Peg of OPAM fame that I would be burning up the finishes in October!  I am going to try to trim up my Twisted Halloween this week and see how the arm does.

I will see if I can find the number of finishes for the OPAM group so far this year.  Peg or Kris usually publishes it somewhere.


  1. Maybe a local friend will gift you with Rocky Horror Picture Show tickets. Fingers crossed for you. If not you can Always look on the bright side of life ... Thanks for putting that song in my head!

  2. I must be a theater prude...I've not seen either show. Maybe I should go one year to see what I'm missing. The problem with really funny comedies is that I embarrass my seat partner (read quiet husband). I'm an emotional mess...laughing loudly when things are funny, boohooing for sad shows, and squealing when things get too scary. Imagine that! lol I'll admit that an emotional mess does not make the best theater partner. So happy you enjoyed the show.

  3. I haven't been to the theater for a very long time. The last time was right after 9/11 and my dad and I were heading to Toronto - yes, crossing the border with a bus group 2 1/2 days after 9/11. We saw the Lion King for the second time. Sounds like you had loads of fun at Span-a-lot!

  4. spamalot sounds like a lot of fun! I have yet to see rocky horror picture show. I remember how popular it was when it came out and have been wanting to check it out.


I love to hear from friends! Thanks for leaving a message!
