West Sy-eed

Happy Thursday!!  I went to see West Side Story with Roro last night.  I was really looking forward to it, but I was disappointed.  First of all, I think half of my mind was in Detroit with the Rangers.  I hate missing the games!!  And the other half of my mind was asleep.  It was dark in there.  :)

Second, it seemed to me that it didn't know what it wanted to be.  I think I should disclose that I have never seen ANY version of WSS.  I discussed with my theater friend at work and he assured me that this version had tried to modernized some things and that may have contributed to the problem for me.  I think if I would have known that it was a Sondheim musical, I might have been more prepared.  It just seems kind of like an opera at times, like a ballet at times, like a cheesy Rodgers and Hammerstein musical at times, and like an edgy piece at times (all of which I would like, just not at the same time).  I need to rent the movie and see if I like it better.

So, the Rangers won.  Woohoo!!

I got to bed about midnight and was up and ready to take BFF to the airport this morning at 7am.  Yeesh.  I'm not tired yet, but I get the feeling I will be soon!

I'm on an organizing frenzy at work today.  I have a mission!

Go Rangers!

Oh...Those Rangers. Yes, you are from Texas. I'm originally from Detroit and it's been so long since the Tigers were doing well in baseball (even though the are getting swept damn it) that I immediately jumped to the New York Rangers hockey team...So yeah...Detroit it's usually all about hockey - not baseball. So my first thought was, Hero likes hockey? Why is she not a Stars fan or something??? Then I remembered there was a reason that Detroit could be hosting something other than hockey. Both the Tigers and Lions are doing pretty well in their respective sports.

Enough of sports talk. Sorry you didn't enjoy WSS. I have never seen it, but they are doing it in the TV show I do like much of the music.

I have not seen West Side Story either and from what I've seen of clips here and there on TV, I don't think I'd like it. So glad I'm not the only one!

Yeah Rangers!! I haven't been watching, but i've been flipping back and forth, keeping up with them!

Love it!

I've only seen the WSS movie that my mom and I watched years ago. I liked it. So maybe it was the version.
