I've been to WDW too many times. One of the best rides at the theme park is Space Mountain - a roller coaster in complete darkness. Last week it was busted for about an hour and they forgot to shut down the commuter rail type ride that goes through the middle of Space Mountain. The lights were on and I snapped a couple of photos of the mystery inside.
My daughter is playing Laurie in the Neil Simon play Brighton Beach Memoirs opening at the Longmont Community Theatre tonight. I've seen the rehearsals – it's going to be a great play. Longmont Theatre puts on great shows – everyone involved gives so much to each production. This is Marlo's 5th play at the theatre. The sets for an all-volunteer staff are amazing – they're better than many professional productions I've seen. The theatre is unusual as far as community theatres go. First, they've been around for 50 years (most die after 7 years when the founding members move on to other things). Second, 85% of their operating budget comes from ticket sales – donations only make up 15%. So to survive this long on ticket sales speaks to the quality of their productions. Actors drive from all around, including Denver to audition. Too bad Boulder doesn't have a theatre as well run as Longmont. If anyone wants to go (PG-13 content) – email me and I'll hook you up with tickets. (Or you can buy them online here.) Here are some photos of the set (imagine a life size dollhouse).
I'm in the French West Indies (St. Barths) on vacation. I turn on my iPhone and I start getting tons of twitter messages because I didn't have my phone on for 3 days. On At&t every international SMS received is $0.50. I'm watching them come in at lightning speed while I'm frantically typing "OFF" no that wasn't it - "Messages Off" - finally. The damage about $7.00 - just for turning on my phone. BTW it cost me 50 cents to send the message and 50 cents to get a reply saying the messages were turned off.
