In which I borrow photos from Google Image! [Dec. 21st, 2008|11:28 pm]

It's been a while since I posted about what I've been doing!

Mostly flying... like crazy... ask me where I've been, and I won't be able to tell you. Last year, around this time, I was on leave. But this year I'm not, and I'm guessing that EVERYBODY ELSE is, so I'm making up for it.

Okay, earlier in the month, I saw "The Adventures of Priscilla: Queen of the Desert ~ The Musical!" in Sydney! I saw that movie several times, over a decade ago, and didn't imagine it could be better live! Turns out it could!



With the same friend, I went to karaoke, like THREE times! We were going to go here, but we couldn't get reservations due to its being closed suddenly. So we found another great place, which I won't disclose here because it was already hard to get a reservation. Sorry.

Then I was in London, where I met up with someone whom some of you know. I didn't have a camera, but we saw this:



and did this...:



Then Don and I went to Doha!



There we met up with our friend, ate tasty foods, and then made some weird music.

After that I went to Zurich or something. Tomorrow I'm going to... Rome? And then Johannesburg? And then Tanzania for New Year. Countless turnaround flights in between. Holding out for January, when I'll get my life back again.

Happy Holidays!

I love those insane costumes for "Priscilla Queen of the Desert". My fave moments in the movie is when one of the characters is standing on the bus singing with the long silver fabric flowing out behind her. Awesome visual!

That scene, in particular, was amazing live!

Yeah! Aren't you part Qatari? Anyway, if you were even that close to Dubai, I'd have to go out and meet you there. It's easy for us to get there!

Wow I may be very ignorant or just be strange, but what exactly is that horse thing?

(I didn't expect - or necessarily want - to see animal cadavers in the exhibit. But it was educational and revealing, as it was meant to be.)

Well, at least there are visuals to go with the busy times.

Like always, your life makes me jealous. :)
