Les Mis and MERRY CHRISTMAS!

MERRY CHRISTMAS, EVERYBODY!!!! 😀 I hope you all have/are having/had a wonderful day with lots of food and music and loving people! I woke up this morning to snow on the ground and an only slightly sore throat, which I believe is a Christmas miracle since I’ve been super sick with–get this–the common cold for the past few days. And this is the first time we’ve had a measurable snowfall this season. So that’s like a double Christmas miracle. What up.

In other news, I went to see Les Miserables last night at the 10:00 PM it’s-not-a-midnight-showing-but-let’s-pretend-it-is showing, and it was absolutely amazing. AMAZING. I wasn’t a big fan of the cinematography, but everything else was just. Gah. So good. The acting absolutely blew me away, and like half the theatre was sobbing, and I’ve never seen Les Mis all the way through (I’ve watched the 25th Anniversary Concert on Youtube and listened to the music endlessly, but never actually had a chance to see a full out production of it), and oh my gosh. I just love Les Mis. It’s so good. You have to see it. It’s so good.

Oh, and just because I can, let me gloat for a second about that one time I got to see Aaron Tveit perform live in Catch Me If You Can on Broadway a couple of summers ago and totally got his autograph and a picture with him:

Yup. Aaron Freakin’ Tviet, y’all.

MERRY CHRISTMAS! (And if you don’t celebrate Christmas, I hope you have a really awesomely fantastic day anyway! 😀 )
