I know we have our big writing assignment with Jen at Denton Sanatorium tomorrow, but I needed to squeal a little bit first about the big surprise that L gave me tonight. I think he's been feeling sorry for me because I've been a little wigged out about my job going bye-bye in a couple of months, so he made up a "Half Birthday Surprise" for me: tickets to Les Miserables in July at the Ahmanson Theatre in Los Angeles!! SQUEEEEE!!!
I'm not a huge fan of theatre - not even Phantom of the Opera, which everyone else went nuts for. But this one - it just struck a chord with me. I saw it many years ago in Los Angeles before LaMar was ever a twinkle in my eye. I've been yakking to him for years about how wonderful it was and how much I love the music, and how inspirational the story... don't even get me started on the book. Tonight he forked over tickets as a surprise. Seriously, I almost started crying. I'm so excited, and it will be a really nice thing to look forward to over the next few difficult months of transition. Because I don't know what I'm transitioning TO makes it all the more difficult. But Les Mis tickets... I think I can handle anything with that on the horizon. What can I do for L in return? Probably stop moping around and talking incessantly about work. Yep, I think that'd do it.
