Who Knew Cats Could Sing Italian Opera?

Last night I went to a musical “Cats” with “Jennyanydots.” We bought season tickets to the “Starlight Theater” in Kansas City, and thought it would be great fun. It is an outdoor theater (duh) and because of that fact, shows have to start late so it will be dark. So the shows all start at 8:30 PM and run about 3 hours. The show was surprisingly good, and I found myself humming “Memories” all day today. Of course, everyone that heard me thought I was stupid and gay, but that’s because they are too ignorant to appreciate good theater. (Or “theatre” if you are British, or you’re an illiterate American) I felt a little foolish during one part of the show when these two full grown adults dressed as cats sang an Italian opera love song to each other. I was the only person in the crowd that seemed to think it was funny, and “Jennyanydots” kept laughing because I was laughing, and the people around us thought we were doing something inappropriate just out of their sight, which of course was not true. I just happened to see humor in cat-people singing Italian opera. Sue me.

Our next show is in two weeks, and I think it’s “Annie.” So I’m sure the day after I’ll be humming “Tomorrow” the whole day, and once again, everyone will think I’m stupid and gay. But that’s ok. People have long thought I was stupid and gay. I beg to differ, because not only am I not gay, I’m also reasonably intelligent. I realize that may not be apparent from my entries, my GPA, my ACT scores, or my GMAT score, but you can take my word for it. I’m smart.

So “Jennyanydots” dropped me off on her way home about 11:45 PM, and I remembered that I had inventory at work at 6:00 AM. Yeah. Nothing like sleeping a very short night, and then going in for a WIP inventory. For those of you unfamiliar with manufacturing, WIP stands for Work-In-Progress. This is where each of the cost centers (departments) counts partially completed units, and the information is used to value the company. Doing WIP is almost as fun as stubbing your toe on a metal bedframe, but we managed to get it done quickly, and I got to go home. And I get Friday off while they complete the audit, which means I get a long-awaited break from my job.

In other news, my plan to get totally ripped for swimming season are well underway, and I have ACTUAL muscles beginning to show. And I don’t mean “Photoshop” muscles. They’re REAL! Who knew it could be as easy as spending 3 hours a day at the gym?! But seriously, if you read regularly, you know I didn’t choose to go of my own accord, but the doctor made me go. But now that I’m starting to see results, I’m feeling highly motivated. I may even start watching what I eat. ^Gasp!^

I don’t really have any plans for Friday yet accept for an alcohol-free happy hour, so if any of you would like to hang out, just let me know. I’m sure we can find something interesting to do. Maybe you could help me cut my lawn.

    AUTHOR: HRT My personal favorite conspiricy theory is that there really is no Jennyanydots or a “MS.Right” that they are merely manifestations of the multiple personality disorder that Incredipete suffers from. Which actually is quite rare in men, seeing as it usually develops out of a defense mechanism surrounding a trumatic and often violent sexual episode in latent childhood. I still think Incredipete’s a cool dude though… even if he is a little messed up in the head, just a little…

    AUTHOR: Incredipete’s Boyfriend Umm…excuse me, Incredipeter? What is this shit? I found your little site you tried to hide from me, and suddenly you’re a BREEDER? When you get home, your ass is MINE. And not in any kind of a good way, bitch. All of you fruit fly whores need to stay away from my man.

    AUTHOR: Incredipete At the risk of being burned alive, I would like to voice my opinion. Jennyanydots, I hope you see this, because I’m taking grave risk by saying it… real breasts are best.

    AUTHOR: leviathan I like you, Ms. Right…wanna go out?

  7. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Jennyanydots For the record, my breasts and big and beautiful (and real). Incredipeter – this will be my last posting. Today was exhausting. Goodbye forever.

  8. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Ms. Right My toenails look good in pink, and I do have big, beautiful, perfect breasts. If you don’t believe me, just ask Incredipete. I’m ok with being called a fucking psycho, but I also passed the CPA, so I must not be too stupid.

  9. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Jennyanydots Whatever. It’s so funny how people jump to conclusions about people they don’t even know. For all you know, I could be a brunette with a flat chest. Sorry to ruin your fantasy.

  10. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: leviathan You two girls are BOTH stupid, fucking psychos who give plain looking, blond girls with big boobs a bad name. Oh wait, nevermind. I think Incredipete should put the both of you in a room together and let you claw it out to the death. (I think it may be his master plan, anyhow) Shut up and go back to painting your hot pink toenails.

    AUTHOR: Incredipete’s Girlfriend You all need to shut up, because he is mine now. You snooze you loose.

  12. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Jennyanydots I appreciate your sincerity.

  13. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Ms. Right Incredipete, you thought I had a temper!?!? This chick is fucking psycho! I believe you “Jenny”, but that doesn’t make me any less jealous. So sue me. I’m a jealous girl. If he’s such a good friend, then you can understand why it sucks being 2000 miles away from him.

  14. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Jennyanydots I asked him to get involved to shut you up. Seriously, you’re making me really mad. There is no need for you to be jealous of me. I really am married – I don’t know why you don’t believe that – and Incredipeter and I are just friends – I don’t know why you don’t believe that either. Incredipeter and I go to the Starlight together because my husband won’t go with me and Incredipete’s just that good of a friend.

    AUTHOR: Incredipete Although I am merely a pawn in your little argument, I will just say that both of you have had profound impacts on my life, each in your own way. And thank god the two of you live in different cities, because I’d hate to see this get violent. I fear that if this keeps up, it’s only a matter of time before the two of you turn on me, and I wouldn’t want that. No, I think in this case, discretion is the better part of valor.

  16. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: “Ms. Wrong” Incredipete, you had better just stay out of this. Nothing good can come from you sticking your neck out.

  17. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Jennyanydots “Ms. Right” – or “Ms. WRONG” I would prefer to call her – just insulted you. You need to defend yourself.

  18. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Incredipete Ok, girls. As much as I’ve enjoyed this little display, I think it’s time we all went to our corners. There’s plenty of Incredipete to go around.

  19. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Jennyanydots I have nothing more to say to you except that you are possibly the biggest bitch I have ever known.

  20. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Ms. Right So, suddenly you’re married. Right. Not even Incredipete could be THAT hard up. I doubt you know “ALL ABOUT” my relationship with him.

  21. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Jennyanydots He wouldn’t need to look for a replacement if you were still around. Here’s the thing – I know all about you. I know all about your relationship with Incredipeter. I think he feels comfortable talking about it with his MARRIED friends. I was just teasing you earlier. Obviously you can’t handle it so I’ll quit.

  22. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Ms. Right Hmm. You sound very sweet. I’ll bet I can describe you perfectly: Fair skin, big boobs, short blonde hair… am I warm? Guess why I know. Because that’s what I look like, and I was his first. Everyone since then has been a cheap replacement for me.

  23. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Jennyanydots Jealous AND Insecure. Two very unattractive qualities. Sounds like Incredipeter’s hard times where when he was with you.

  24. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Ms. Right If you knew half of what I did with him, you wouldn’t be talking smack. If he likes a girl like you, then obviously he has fallen on hard times.

  25. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Jennyanydots It’s probably a good thing he hasn’t told you much about me cuz if he did you would really be jealous.

  26. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Ms. Right Who is this “Jennyanydots” and why are you going out with her!? You know how jealous I get!

  27. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Incredipete Truly, you guys make me feel much less stupid and gay. Thanks for caring!

  28. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: theMightyDingus The theme to SpongeBob Squarepants has often been the bane of my existence. I only know the first two lines, yet the tune continues to haunt me. Not that I’m weird or anything….

  29. November 30, -0001 at 12:00 am

    AUTHOR: Roger Hey Incredipete, wait until you have kids! There are far worse things to be overheard humming to yourself. I got a few strange looks the other day and realised I was humming the ‘Bob the Builder’ theme. Other classic have included the Max and Ruby theme(cartoon rabbits) and on one desperate occasion, Teletubbies. The shame! The shame!
