WARNING!!!! if you know me personally, you may read my diary, but if you do, you take the chance of hearing things you don't want to know, misunderstanding what I've written and being hurt by it.

Thanks. * Here is a Diary Etiquette Read Me.
Youpee for Da Evil Dead!!!
A quick entry... I gotta pack and get things ready for going to Ottawa tomorrow. I am NOT looking forward to again getting up and dealing with picking people up, driving on the highway with construction and getting someplace with a time deadline.
Oh well, I will try to have a fun weekend. Unfortunately (I cannot believe I'm saying this), it is not hot... it is supposed to be 12°C tonight, which is downright chilly... and it was overcast most of the day and not very warm. If I am going to be going to a cottage in the Gatineaus, with a canoe and a kayak and a lake, I'd like it to be hot and sunny, so I can say "oh thank GOD I'm being spoiled here instead of at home in the city". hehe.
I must say, Evil Dead 1&2, The Musical ROCKED!! It was fantastic. Very very funny. The dancing was great, the cast was great, the songs were great, the jokes were corny and snappy and silly and just great. The sets and lighting were great. Yay for Chuck buying me tickets. I might ask if he wants to go, when I get back from Ottawa, and take him. I certainly would see it again.
They managed to meld together the semi-parallel stories from the movies Evil Dead and Evil Dead 2: Dead at Dawn into a seamless hole. They had all sorts of winks to the movies and all the best parts. Lots of blood.
There was an actual live band playing the music... yay! And unlike orchestras for most musicals I have seen, these ones were actually GRINNING as they played... they, and the cast, obviously loved what they were doing as much as the audience.
There was lots of blood. And flashing lights, and punning. Much punning. The music had every genre possible, from hiphop and rap to tango and gospel. Two macho guys in a cabin in the woods, surrounded by zombies, singing and dancing tango? yeah!! 1300AD crusader knights singing gospel? yeah.
Anyways, if you have the chance to see it, do. It is NOT necessary to have seen either of the movies to enjoy it from start to end, but I bet you will want to see the movies AFTER you have seen it... my friend does, and the same was expressed by other theater-goers who passed us on the stairs.
Right now Lucky Kitty is sleeping in the livingroom... poor thing is all purred out. Now I gotta go pack, and upload my comics for the weekend.
I'll be back late Sunday night. Tah!
