Oh! Well I never! Was there ever
A cat so clever as magical Mr. Mistoffelees
James and I have been singing this song all weekend, and all thanks to my wonderful, magical, clever, amazing Mom, who so kindly bought us tickets to go see Cats at the Capitol Theater in Salt Lake.
When I was little, my best friend Caity Clement and I would listen to the Cats soundtrack over and over and then subject anyone and everyone we could find to our painstakingly choreographed performances of Mungojerrie and Rumpleteaser, Macavity the Mystery Cat, and, of course, Memories. Her poor parents. They were the ones who got forced to watch us the most.
This experience with Cats, though, just made me all the more excited to go see it and it was just as fun watching it as it was all those years ago skipping around to the music in Caity Clements basement. Thanks, Mom! You are the best!
Here's me and James at the theater, getting all ready for the show.
Here's me with the Cats sign. Not the greatest picture ever, but I wanted to show off my dress. I made it out of a pair of men's slacks I got at Savers for a dollar, just a few hours before we left for the theater. You can't see the whole thing (there's lace on the bottom) but what do you think?
And here's studly, handsome James with his new haircut (thanks, Elliot!)
