A report to his manager:
Jeanne, Just a heads up on an incident that occurred tonight.At 8pm (right as I was about to clock off.. great) a woman attempted to enter the theater for the 7:30 Sex and the City. I informed her that no more people were being allowed into the theater as it had already started.She gave me the story that she had driven from Pinellas and spent $4 on gas. I let her know that I am sorry for the inconvience but that no one was being allowed in. She requested to speak to a manager and I informed her I was one. She then requested to speak to someone above me and I pointed out Jen which is when she requested "Someone older" so I said "Excuse me?" to which she withdrew the statement. She rephrased to ask for someone over Jen so we directed them to the event security who gave her the same information we did.She then asked Troy at concession for our (the managers) names, so I stopped her and told her if she needed information we would be glad to give it to her but not to speak to our staff. She asked me for my name and when I proceded to give it to her (while spelling my last name: Nassar) she said "As in Abdul?" so again I said "Excuse me?" to which she attempted to withdraw but I told her to leave the building as I was not about to let myself be discriminated against in my place of work. It took me threatening to call mall security before she began to walk out. I followed her to the door and made sure she left.I wanted to give you this information incase anything were to come of it and you did not know what happen.

There you have it. Middle aged white woman threw a temper tantrum because she couldn't see her girl get married to Mr. Big.... can always pay to see it on Friday.

It was AWESOME!!!
Fred and I had a great time. The seats (thanks Freddy!) were pretty good. I was like a little kid when the show began and all the "animals" came down the aisles. I kept pointing and going "look!" "oooh!" You almost forgot they were people with costumes/puppets. There were a few scenes where there was so much going on, I know if I went again, I would see something new. I wish we could have taken pics inside.
The only thing is the evening showed how Fred and I are getting old. The program was from 8pm-11-pm. Before the end of the first part, I was yawning and thinking of bed. ha ha.
I would see this again in a heart beat!! I wouldn't mind going to see other plays. There is just something so unique at seeing a live performance. I need to see what else is coming...

Today I turned 43. I don't have issues with age. At least, not yet. When it comes to birthdays, I am a real little kid. I like a big deal made out of me for my birthday. That doesn't always happens, then I have to deal with it. I guess that is part of growing up. :)
It was pretty uneventful. Wasn't mentioned at work, even though I was shamefully announcing it for the last few days. lol
Steph was the first to wish me Happy Birthday... at 12:15am!! It was very sweet of her, but to hear her "ring" on my cell in the middle of the night freaked me out. Thought something was wrong. She's my girl, though, and knows it meant a lot to me.
Fred and I will be going to Lion King this Friday. Can't wait! It's going to be so great!

this picture does not give the colors justice... they are NEON shiny! Oh, and he has a shirt to match too! He is so proud of his shoes & belt, he's only had them for a couple of weeks, but he's already hand cleaned them. I am hoping this is just a phase he is going through like when he was into the big "rhino" and "sean young" clothes back in middle school. I mean, there are bigger battles, you know? Now, if he wants to dye his hair ANY of these colors, I will put my foot down... :)
My kids make me smile!

BUT that's not why I am mad. Last night, for the 3rd week in a row, Jason Castro was allowed to stay while they sent home someone who was MUCH better than him. I just don't get it! How can people think he's good!!! Yeah, he's got a cute smile to go along with his great eyes. BUT THAT SHOULD NOT BE ENOUGH!!! Plus, he just looks like he is either too immature to know how important the competition is or he just doesn't care. He is constantly shrugging his shoulders when he's asked questions and mumbles his answers. I mean, if that can get you into American Idol, I am signing Andy up for next season!!!
I really liked Brooke White. Fred didn't, he said she talked and gave her opinions too much. I think she was really "human". And POOR Syesha Mercado! She has been on the bottom list every time. And she is the only one who has shown PROGRESSIVE improvement. I don't get it!
But will I stop watching it? NO WAY! There's only 4 people left! And let me put it out there right now: I predict that David Cook is going to win, with possibly David Archuleta as second.
