Musical, Flowers, Books (and it's not even our anniversary)

Keith and I are thisclose to getting tickets to go to Wicked. YAAAAAAAAYY!!!! I've been wanting to see Wicked for ages, and its finally coming to Ottawa, August 13-31, and WE'RE ACTUALLY GOING!!!!

Now I just have to wait until August without exploding from excitement. Can it be done? Stay tuned to find out.

Keith finally let me get flowers too! Granted, it was when we were grocery shopping together, and I picked them out. But he did pay and they are sooo gorgeous and its the first time there has been any kind of flower giving in our relationship, so I don't really GIVE a rat's ass about the level of romance (read: zilch) in getting them.

He also got me four books of my choosing yesterday. (Yep, I'm spoiled.) I got Jodi Picoult's "The Tenth Circle", two by Philippa Gregory "The Virgin's Lover" and "The Queen's Fool" and "Little Earthquakes" by Jennifer Weiner.

I got The Tenth Circle because I'm on a mission to collect all of Jodi Picoult's books; so far I have four including this one. I got Philippa Gregory because historical fiction is easily my favourite genre as well as she wrote "The Other Boyeln Girl" which was decent enough to turn into a movie. As for Jennifer Weiner, she wrote a book called "Good In Bed" that I own and it had me laughing out loud, so that's another author I wouldn't mind collecting her complete works. (hint, hint :P)

Wicked was playing a block from our hotel while we were in Melbourne. I was disappointed it was the show playing so we didnt go see it lol.

Yay for flowers! :) What kind are they?

I would love to see Wicked! That is awesome! I hope you survive the wait. :P But man, I am betting the wait will be worth it! :) How exciting!

Have fun reading your books! It's good to be spoiled every now and again! Good Job Keith!

Heather - why don't you want to go see it?

Kamie - my favourite, yellow roses. These ones have a tinge of red/orange on the tips of their outer petals. SO pretty.
Thanks! Already finished The Tenth Circle. I get to start another one when the bedroom is finally clean :D (see how that works? lol)

Me loves books and am immensely jealous that your beloved allowed you to get four in one go!

I've got the book of Wicked sitting on my TBR pile. I'll get there one day...

Did you know Jennifer Weiner has a new book out too? It's called Certain Girls. I've got Goodnight nobody by her on my TBR pile too now that I think about it.
