I fetched my mom from her house right after work, and we set off to find some dinner. Since our plan to go to the Irish restaraunt across the street from the Hippodrome fell through, we instead went to one in Ellicott City. There was hardly anyone there, and the shepherd's pie was just what I wanted. We had a leisurely and tasty dinner, then headed onward to Baltimore.
Our seats were fantastic- left orchestra, row Q. I may well be spoiled now for the balcony. The sets were great, the actors were great, the show was great. At intermission, I turned to my mom and said "By all rights, Glinda should be irritating me no end. But I like her!" It's hard to do a character like that, I think, so well done there.
I thought it was weird when the curtains closed after the final song, and people immediately started getting up and filing out. Then they were taken by surprise by the curtain calls. It's not like the movies, people, you can't just leave as soon as the credits start rolling! Rude.
It took some time to get out of the parking garage, of course. And I had to drive my mom home and then turn around and go back to Baltimore, where my bed is. So I didn't make it to my house until around Midnight, and it was my second day in a row in which I was only home for sleep. Today I feel like I'm starting to get a cold, but I'm hoping that's just because of the tired. After work today, I'm going straight home and putting on my pajamas. I'm going to eat dinner in front of the TV, and then I'll probably play Oblivion until bed. What a lovely plan.
