Sunday was a fantastic day of adultland! What is adultland, you may ask? Oh, you don’t have kids, do you?! Adultland is any time you are out of the house, without a stroller and diapers in hand, dressed in cute clothes and go to a restaurant without a children’s menu! Many thousand’s of thank yous to my sister, Lori, who watched the baby while Den and I were out! Love you! 🙂
The girls, myself, my husband and one of our dearest and most talented friend (Stu Daylida) went to the Flamingo Library Theatre to watch Tina Walsh and friends perform a show of the hits of Burt Baccarach. We went not only to meet Tom Gallagher and John Merren, who run the Sunday afternoon events, also know as the Brown Bag theatre, but also to check out the stage and lights, etc, because we are performing there on April 29th! AAAGH! This is a real stage, with a real proscenium and follow spots and everything!
Tina’s show was quite interesting, with my personal favorite moment sung by Kristin Hertzenberg, “Kristine” of “Phantom, the Las Vegas Spectacular” singing “I Say a Little Prayer for You”. It was truly blissful and may I say-“girl can saaa-iiiing!” She was quite stunning, and an all around Dangerous Curves’ favorite. I also want to mention Philip Fortenberry, of the Jersey Boys. He was the pianist and musical director for Tina. I must tell you that his skills on the piano are absolutely amazing. He was given a solo moment in the show that was over far too quickly. What an amazing talent.
After the show, we went to eat a late lunch at the Bonefish Grill. Once again, we have picked a yummy dining experience! They have a gluten free menu for Lisa, a great wine list and the food is absolutely yummy! We enjoyed appetizers, salads, wine and our main courses ranged from fish to filet. Our server, Tracie, was adorable and took great care of us! All in all a fantastic afternoon of songs, learning, friendship and great food. You know, adultland!
Hoping your week is curving in the right direction!
Friends of the curves, I hope you are having a super curvy weekend filled with fun and frolic and prosperity! How was that for telling the Universe what you want! In any case, just to keep you fully informed of the Curves doings, we have implemented a Friday morning meeting via our cell phones. We decided to do this when we realized that half of our rehearsal time was taken up discussing the “business” of Dangerous Curves, i.e., what are we wearing for the next gig, who paid for what, new song discussions, web updates, well, you get the idea. So, Lisa came up with the Friday morning meeting via cellphone so we can still be in pajamas if necessary! This is where my IPhone has become even more invaluable than ever!
Truth be told, I have loved my IPhone from the second I held her. Sleek, yet sturdy, beautiful in appearance and tons of cool stuff. Mmmm, a lot like many of the fabulous women I know! Now, with the addition of the Apps Store, I no longer miss my Palm Pilot. Everything I could do with my Pilot has been upgraded with the IPhone and even things I didn’t know I couldn’t live without (texting-I ADORE texting!, weather, maps, Evernote, ambiance) are right there at my finger tips! Now, how does all this relate to Friday morning meetings with Dangerous Curves, you may ask? Well, simply touch the phone icon and call your first person or they may call you. Then after some nice pleasantries, touch the add call icon, your first caller is put on hold-tap your next contact-nice pleasantries-then the onscreen menu changes to Merge Calls (replacing add and swap) touch that and voila! All exchanging pleasantries, drinking coffee, in PJ’s (or whatever) mapping out our next big curvaceous adventure! I truly love all my apple stuff (I am writing and sharing this with you from my lovely Imac) as I believe it helps my creativity to shine. And, if it helps Dangerous Curves further themselves down the curvy road to success…I’m in! Enjoy your weekend, fellow curves!

I dreamed of this moment in the throes of anxiety while getting the show ready. How good it will feel when this is over-how did we do-did I remember my words-on and on and on the dreaming went. So, here I am, relaxing on a Sunday evening with Law and Order in the back round and the baby sleeping and a nice glass of champagne on the table next to me-writing this blog for you!
And, how did it go, you may ask? Well, I think it went VERY well! Yes, there were a few baubled notes, a few forgotten words, a few talk spots that need to be tightened. Yes, all these facts are true. Also true was the electric energy in the house, the moments of true harmonic bliss, three girls absolutely singing in perfect togetherness. Moments of truth, told so eloquently by each one of the curves, sharing with the audience a moment of their private lives. Sometimes poignant, sometimes funny, always genuine. The audience loved it! A fantastic show is beginning to emerge. Look out! The curves are at again and this time…there is NOTHING to stop us! P.S. We also want to say a big thank you to those who bought a CD and for those who donated to the Alliance for Lupus Research. Seriously, you are a yummylicious person and we adore you! Now, did you really think I could make it through an entire post without a Karen vokabulary word?!! 🙂
Well, today is show day, but I thought I would write to you about our rehearsal yesterday. Great and rough, as these things go. Always wishing for more time until the show and excited anticipation for performing for an audience. And, as always, with these girls-amazement at their beautiful voices and fantastic performances. Think of us tonite and send us happy/peppy/positive thoughts and I will blog about the show this weekend!
