The weather today was glorious! I had to work the am shift at work today and open the restaurant. I got to be by myself for an hour and talk to a table of guys who were a lot of fun. As soon as noon hit the garden was full and we all had tables and people waiting. By 2PM I was driving in my car heading to the beach for a little sun because I got to be cut first. The great thing about working 3.5 hours is that I made good money in those few hours due to big tables.
The rest of the weekend is supposed to be beautiful and I am working the pm shifts so I believe that I am going to treat myself to a day at the beach this weekend. I was walking to the bank today and couldn't believe that it is so nice out. I also noticed last night, that I haven't gotten one mosquito bite since living here. Can you believe it? Los Angeles doesn't have mosquitos!!! That is FAN-TASTIC! How could I have missed that?
I read an article today that Bernadette Peters is going to be replacing Catherine Zeta-Jones in A Little Night Music on Broadway! I lived in NYC for 5 years and Ms. Peters didn't do one show and as soon as I leave she is back...I am very upset over this! I remember watching the 2003 Tonys where Ms. Peters performs Rose's Turn from Gypsy and being floored by it, because she was crying and singing at the same time!!! I don't know anyone who can do that. I know of plenty of Broadway Legends that can convey sadness in their songs, but I have never seen anyone able to be sad and sing at the same time. Day in and day out, 8 performances a week. That is impressive! I am sure that is why Stephen Sondheim loves working with her! So to all my NYC friends and East Coasters I highly recommend seeing Bernadette Peters come July. And tell me how it is LOL!
Until tomorrow. Take care and be safe.
All my love,
