brotherhood of the black dagger

So I have Alison to thank for my new obsession. I started reading J.R. Ward's series and boy am I hooked. I like them so much better than True Blood. I absolutely love reading stories for the guy's point of view so much more interesting. I highly recommend this series.

Jones beach

Jones beach-Friday June 26th.
ZZTop and Aeorsmith performed tonight despite the rain, thunder and lightning. It was supposed to start at 7:30 but because of the rain they didn't start til 9pm. The rain stopped but there certainly was a light show around the theatre. Steven and Joe seemed to be having a lovers tiff, they seemed odd.Plus Steven seemed very very hyped up, not his usual stage persona, don't know what's up with that.

NKOTB at Jones Beach

After a dismal week of weather and work. Friday night cleared up to be a gorgeous night to be at the Nikon Theatre at Jones Beach to see the NKOTB. Jabberwockeez opened up first and they were a pretty innovative dance group. Here's the webiste
Jesse Mccathney came up after and he was okay. I did like his new song Body Language and will try to get that downloaded.
About 9pm, the main event, the NKOTB come on and put up one hell of a show. The were fantastic. I think the show was better than the one we saw in Sept. About mid-concert they all came out in different sections of the theatre and donny was on one side and Joey on the other of the row we were sitting at. We were literally about 5 people away from him. I will post some of those pictures later. It was a great evening and Alyssa, Andrea and I have a wonderful time.

more crafts

Here are some things I've made in the past

Crafts for Sale

I've been working hard trying to me some pretty paper crafts to sell. My two favorite things right now is the Card Organizer and Coupon Organizer. Using paper to make something other than a scrapbook is alot of fun, no pressure of desiging layouts. Here are some pictures of ones I've made.

My Day Sucked

So, it's last day of vacation and I had plans of getting a hair cut, do some shopping and going to the Yankee game tonight. I got my hair cut, went to macys and got a frantic phone call from my brother that the police are in my apartment and there was a fire. Well, let me tell you, I couldn't get in my car and onto the highway fast enought to try to get home. While sitting in traffic on the LIE, my mother called from Disney absolutely frantic since the cops called her from the apartment to tell her there was fire and the poilce were in the apartment and wanted to know if she was the tenant. When she told him that she was but that her daughter and granddaughter should be there and he responded that we weren't she immediately thought that something had happened to us and since she wasn't able to get us on our cel phones, (damn the northshore and sucky towers) she was besides herself. I finally got a hold of her and assured her that we were fine and going to the apartment to see what happened. Well, the laundrymat had an electrical fire and the firemen broke through the front door and opened up every window in the apartment. thankfully we had no fire or smoke damage, just the busted door, my curtain rod was ripped off the wall, and strangley enough my favorite tinkerbell figure is broken :(
All in all we were very lucky. My next door neighbor was not as lucky, they had to blow out her windows and pull up the floorboards. She will need extensive work done on her apt. We had no electricity for several hours, but that's back now, hence my ability to write this and we will have no gas for at least a week. I don't cook, so it's doesn't matter.

Mother's 2009

For Mother's Day I got tickets for my daughter and myself to see Mary Poppins. We first went to Becco's and had a very nice pasta meal. I wasn't crazy about their desserts, but you can't have everything. The play, however, was wonderful. Between the sets and the engery of the cast, it was a fabulous performance.

Yanni @ Radio City

Saturday I went to dinner at the Palm Restaurant and had a fabulous meal with Mom, Frank & Lily. Frank and Lily wanted to treat me for a belated birthday dinner as we couldn't get together on my actual birthday which fell on Easter this year. Since we were all seeing Yanni together, we chose to go before the show. Anyone who knows me is aware that I'm a huge Yanni fan and will always get tickets to see him perform when he's in town. That being said, I was very disappointed in his new Voices endeavor. I actually liked the voices of the two men, but the two women I could definitely have done without and just heard his instrumentals. The best part of show was the encore where it was strictly Yanni. Here's the encore, I filmed it w/my camera, it starts off a little shaky but gets better.

Rock of Ages

Last night, lyssa and went into the city to see Rock of Ages. It was a little campy, a little crude and a little lewd. Kinda of like me, so I enjoyed it. I loved that James Caprinello was in it. I saw him in Xanadu and thought he was totally cute. Constinatine Maroulis did a nice of Dew the aspiring wanna be rocker. I loved the lcd "lighters" that were given out to wave during the ballads. This is a picture of the what's above the stage. Tomorrow I'm off to Radio City to see Yanni.
