Happy weekend, everyone! How will you be spending the best two days of the week? My weekend had just begun but the best part of it might already be over. Ah, but why, you ask?
1. I caught RENT on Broadway. That's right! RENT was the first Broadway show I fell in love with, and the only show besides Wicked that I know every word to. I managed to snag tickets to the second day of their Off-Broadway revival, and I was wedged between theater critics galore. I loved when they laughed aloud, frowned when the man in front of me wasn't clapping when the audience was roaring away. I hope they get a good review, I cried my way through the whole of Act Two.
2. Remember how I said I was going to beg Dustin for the Fall look? WELL.
These weren't taken in my usual lighting, but I couldn't risk waiting till I got home. I already knew I was going to bawl my night away (it was so good for the soul).
One thing I'd like to mention: I whipped a mirror out after the show to assess the damage under my eye. Nothing. Sure, I already dabbed at my eyes with a tissue, but I was still surprised I didn't have vestiges of mascara ala A Clockwork Orange down my eyes. My liquid liner wasn't swimming around, and all, I repeat, all of my eyeshadow remained on my lids . If it wasn't for my now visible eye circles and lack of bottom liner, you would never have known I was an absolute baby when they performed I'll Cover You (reprise).
Tomorrow, a part of my childhood will end with the final installment of Harry Potter. I'm thinking I better be wearing Le Metier de Beaute, or no makeup at all. It is a given that I'm going to emerge bug-eyed from that cinema.
