Where he stands
Pope Benedict XVI on US Politics:
"A Catholic would be guilty of formal cooperation of evil, and so unworthy to present himself for holy Communion, if he were to deliberately vote for a candidate precisely because of the candidate's permissive stand in favor of abortion and/or euthanasia." Memorandum to Cardinal Theodore E McCarrick, 2004.

hmm I guess I'm a Catholic guilty of cooperation of evil and have been receiving Holy Communion against the Pope's wishes. At least there will be a lot of women that I'll know in hell then.

Sweet Charity
Yesterday, I went to see the musical "Sweet Charity" at the Al Hershfeild theater with my friend Farrah, who is visiting from New Orleans and Karen (this is her third time seeing it).

Despite the delays and problems surrounding this production, I have been really excited to see it since I heard "Sweet Charity" was coming to Broadway. I always liked the original Neil Simon film with Shirley McLaine. This time in the role of Charity is the talented Christina Applegate, who was adorable and did a great job playing the naive and hopeful dance hall hostess looking for love in the 60s. She was even nominated for Tony for her performance, although she did not win.

Songs include "Hey, Big Spender," "Rhythm of Life" and "If My Friend's Could See Me Now!"

The set was very colorful and had lots of nightlife lights and 1960s flair, but the wonderful choreographed dancing took center stage.

For me, the two hours really flew by and not once did I look at my watch. Instead, I was actually shocked when it was the final scene already.

PS: We saw Julia Stiles outside with this reddish haired guy, they looked like they were just friends tho. She was seated in the Orchestra rows too, so we saw her again during intermission. She was late getting back to her seat, so more people noticed her because of that. She was shorter than I expected, but looked very pretty with wavy shoulder length blonde hair.

PPS: Afterwards went to The Lobby for the first time and met up with 3 friends for sort of a mini high school reunion. One of them, Carolyn, I hadn't seen in four years. The place was fun and packed, we danced to Hip Hop and had a few drinks. I was tipsy going home on the subway and talked to a guy on the platform--one of the only times I wasn't eager to see the train come.

Fleetwood Mac
I like Fleetwood Mac BUT thunder DOESN'T only happen when it's raining. However, players DO only love you when they are playing! ;) I can attest to both. I love the song but every time I hear it, I say out loud to my stereo, thunder can happen even when it's not raining. Just last weekend in fact.

Darth Vadar Roller Coaster: Check this out, the IT guy at work sent it to me, lol

Mahnamahna (Muppets Show)
Click the HERE to hear mahnamahna! I can't stop watching this video and singing the song, lol. It makes no sense, but it makes me laugh. I like the Dr. Pepper commercial that uses this song too, but it's originally from The Muppets. Oh and look at this Mahna Mahna: Bush, Blair, Saddam

It's Ladies Night
Tonight is my friend Divina's bachelorette party!! I helped plan it, along with a sorority friend of her's from UCONN.

We're hitting the bars in SoNo (South Norwalk, CT) in one of my uncle's limousines (Settembre's Limo).

Of course we'll be giving her gag gifts and making her wear a tiara and silly t-shirt that she'll have to get signed by random guys, haha, I can't wait. Before we head out for the night we are having a stripper come to her apartment and pretend to be a police officer and request that she keep things down, this was her one request, she insisted he be a cop so she can experience the cliche herself. After lots of private "interviews," just kidding, we picked Ian.

UPDATE: two real cops stopped by her apartment but then happily cuffed the bachelorette and posed for photos, was thrown towards the ceiling by the stripper and then plopped upon his shoulders (he was more like an acrobat than a stripper), danced on a bar for the first time and had a blast!!
