My Pirate Name

Is Dirty Bess Cash

It goes on to say: You're the pirate everyone else wants to throw in the ocean -- not to get rid of you, you understand; just to get rid of the smell. You're musical, and you've got a certain style if not flair. You'll do just fine. Arr!

I know I haven't been updating a lot the past few weeks. I'm still processing having to put MMG away--again!--and doing the crockpot thing with TNN. Not really riveting stuff to blog about.

Yesterday, however, I went with Jonnie & Steve to see Spamalot in Denver. What a great time! I think even those people who hate musicals would have fun at this one because they riff on all the standard musical fare. And for the guys (or gals) there's The Lady of the Lake and her Laker Girls. If you've seen Monty Python and the Holy Grail, you know the plot and have seen many of the bits, but they put a Broadway twist on them. Good fun.

The show is in Denver pretty much through October. The tickets are pricey. But if you can swing it, it is worth the price. In my opinion.

Or, closer to home, check out Theaterworks at UCCS. They have a great slate of shows coming up this season and tickets are around $18.00. I highly recommend The Santaland Diaries, which they are bringing back as their December show. It's by David Sedaris (Me Talk Pretty One Day, This American Life) about when he was an elf at Macy's one Christmas season.

And there's always The Pikes Peak Center for good shows at fairly reasonable prices. I sound like an ad for The Arts In Colorado Springs. So I'll go get ready to report for jury duty. That should give me something to blog about.
