Saving Susan Lucci, Maggie's Attitude, and Other Events

Part I. Saving Susan Lucci

I'm pretty sure she should have thanked me in that speech.

I had a dream the other day that I won a free cruise! I was so excited, but when I got there I found out that the cruise was:
a) just over night, 
b) not actually leaving the harbor and 
c) on a crumby boat where the "cabin" area was actually an airplane cabin with rows and rows of seats.

 I tried to remain optimistic none the less. The best part of the cruise was that there were celebrities onboard. The guys from Rockapella, a few of the Backstreet Boys, one of my EFY counselors, and Susan Lucci (yes, that Susan Lucci from Young and the Restless, which show I have never watched.) When I grew tired sitting in my seat (37 F) listening to my ipod I took a stroll on deck. I chatted briefly with the BSB, after I overheard them arguing with their manager, and then I noticed Susand Lucci swimming in the water below. Only she wasn't swimming--she was drowning! I dove into the depths and saved her. Saved her soap opera life is what I did. I think she was grateful--don't really remember.

Part II. Maggie's Attitude

Our conversation yesterday:

Me: Maggie did you do a poopie?
Maggie: No.
Me: Maggie, I'm pretty sure your diaper is poopie.
Maggie: So?

Part III. Other Events

We watched Hairspray once yesterday and once the day before. It's Dan's favorite. I love that Dan loves this musical. Its generally not a genre he's willing to watch. It might be the whole "fat kid takes over the world" theme he gets a kick out of. And he probably has a thing for Zac Efron. Don't we all? Okay, not really.

Happy Monday!

HA HA HA! Billy and I were just looking up Rockapella on YouTube the other day! I used to love them!

That is HILARIOUS!! You should write out that dream into a movie manuscript. Susan Lucci could play herself.

i'll watch Hairspray with Dan anytime! I love it. I own two copies and the CD. I listen to "Good morning Baltimore" every morning replacing the word baltimore with Lehi, as I dance around the house like I'm walking down a street pretending to be Tracy Turnblad.

We love Hairspray!!! The kids know almost all the songs (we belted them out loud last time we drove to Utah)! In fact I am giving it to myself for Christmas. It is under the tree and everything. BTW-great job saving Susan...hopefully she'll thank you for it someday! ;-)

I can tell you don't watch soaps. Susan Lucci is actually on All My Children. How do I know? My mother always watched soaps! I can't stand them, but I know plenty about soaps over the years, thanks to her. :)
