I saw Wicked last night at the Fox in Atlanta. I had seen it on Broadway with the original cast, and this was almost as good. And now I'm "dancing through life!" :-)

Random Wednesday

We really didn't want to do any of the traditional wedding photo poses - feeding each other cake, throwing bouquets, toasting. But our photographer felt otherwise. So we refused to make the toast a serious one.

Homecoming 2008

Saturday's georgia football game was also Homecoming - so I am extra-glad that we won! Homecoming week also means I see little of my hubby, since he advises the students who manage and run Homecoming and all of the activities involved. There was free food in Tate plaza, a T-Pain concert, and the court. Oh, and a parade, which was rained out. (I was very sad about that, since I was set to be a parade judge!!)

If you were watching the game on tv when they came back from break at the end of halftime, you saw Marc escorting the new king and queen off the field. Yay! He's famous!

I knew four of the five guys on court, and would have been happy if any were crowned king, but I only knew one of the ladies of the court. The kids who won are really great, and I couldn't be happier for them. Beau is a member of the Arch Society (our university ambassadors) and has worked some events for me and is always a big help. Bailey was an orientation leader and while I don't know her well, she was sincerely grateful.

After the winners are announced, we quickly escort them and their families off the field and up to the President's suite for the last half of the game. Can you tell they were excited?

And while we were on the field waiting for halftime, we had yet another chance for some Uga VII photos. He is such a handsome dog!

If you want to meet us for dinner, it will most likely be at Transmet, our favorite pizza joint. And now they have a location with parking and waitresses! So of course we had to go when the Alexolskey's graced Athens with their presence. We were even able to talk Anne and Trip into joining us.

The boys weren't quite as happy to have their picture taken as the girls were. Those are mocking smiles!

What do you do after a nice, hot bath?

You wrap yourself in a towel, of course

You're stranded on a deserted island. . .

I've been sick. Too much work and not enough rest. So what does a sick girl do? Lay around and watch bad tv. This week it included the newest episode of One Tree Hill, where one character asked another if you were stranded on a deserted island and could only have five cds with you, what would they be?

So I am assuming that this island has a.) a power source or b.) an unlimited supply of batteries. And daiquiris.

But I got to thinking (as I am coughing up a lung) what would my five albums be? Here's what I've decided:

1.) Paul's Boutique by the Beastie Boys
An all-time fave. I've been rocking "Shake Your Rump" for almost 20 years.

2.) Home by the Dixie Chicks
I don't care if you hate their politics, these ladies can sing. I love all their cds, but this excellent album was overshadowed by Natalie's remarks.

3.) American Idiot by Green Day
I love the rock-opera feel to this album. The only song I wasn't crazy about is the one that got all the airplay - "When September Ends."

4.) Wicked Soundtrack
I LOVE a Broadway musical, so I had to have one in my top 5. And it was a tough choice. I am loving Legally Blonde now and Avenue Q is a perennial favorite. But Wicked just takes my breath away. If I could sing, I'd be belting out "Popular" and "Defying Gravity" all day long. (Actually, I do sing those tunes - just very poorly when I am by myself with the radio cranked!)

5.) Time after Time by Eva Cassidy
I adore Eva Cassidy. It is such a shame that she was only discovered after her death.

So what are your top five?
