Zombies, Rock 'n' Roll, Birthdays and Renaissance Faires...
While I'm at work I listen to books on cd to keep myself awake and keep my mind going. This week I was listening to Pride and Prejudice and Zombies. I did not have great hope for this book but I have to say that the writer who took this classic and added ultra violence did such a great job of combining the two in such a way that was actually very entertaining. In this new novel Elizabeth Bennett and her sisters are a team of katana weilding zombie killers. Truly the novel is tongue in cheek and actually quite charming considering the crazy amount of undead. I have half decided to go as Elizabeth Bennett, zombie slayer for Halloween.
Friday, while I was listening to my book, I got a text message from Seth saying we had been invited by his mother to go to Shadowbox Cabaret for dinner and to see The Best of Shadowbox, the currently running show. I had never been so I jumped at the chance. It was sooo fun. They had some amazing singers and several truly hysterical skits. It makes me want to go play with them. :) tempting. The waiters are the actors and our waiter was adorable and a really good dancer. There was a girl on the cast who looked scarily like Chef Anne from Secrets of a Restaurant Chef.
In our family August is Birthday month. My Mother, her two sisters, my uncle Charlie and Seth's mother all have birthdays in this month. Next weekend is all about Seth's mom. There is a surprise party as well as all of us going to Huntington Park to a Clippers game on Sunday. I haven't figured out when I can get together with my mom. I will find a time.
The 28th and 29th we are headed to Michigan to attend the Michigan Renaissance Festival. We are doing a Wench invasion with our friends Jean and Pete (who is a Rogue himself) and Sarah. Jean and Sarah were the first wenches I met after getting my pin. They are amazing and so much fun. We have a hotel room and will be making a weekend of it. There will be pictures. But for now enjoy a photo of Jean, Sarah and I after our first meeting. Aren't we super cute.
