My Life: The Musical

I am very excited because I ordered the Les Mills Body Pump kit.  It’s a series of weightlifting DVD’s including a bar bell and weights.  Yeah…*flexes*…I used to pump some iron back in the day.  I love Body Pump but have not found a class nearby so I have brought it to me!  Yea!

Last night I stayed up and watched the Tony Awards.  Of course I cried.  Love theater!  One day I will see my friend Christina get her due at the Tony’s.  I will try to bump her partner Shawn out so I can go as her date.  Somehow I don’t think Shawn will go for that but…I dream.  Since, it’s not likely I will ever receive a Tony I will settle for cheering for my friend while she gets hers!  Can’t wait!  It’s gonna happen Chris!

Neil Patrick Harris did a great job as the host.  Man and I are fans of his character, Barnie, on How I Met Your Mother.  He really makes the whole show!  When getting ready for bed Man asked how the Tony’s were.


“Who won?”

“Um…lot’s of people.  Neil Patrick Harris was the host.”

“Nice,” he said as he delved out the toothpaste for himself and then for me.

“You know,” I said around my toothbrush, “he could play you if they ever make a  movie about my life.”

Man guffawed as he spit toothpaste in the sink. 

“I doubt they will ever make a movie about my life,” he said as he commenced brushing.

I spat.

“I didn’t say a movie about YOUR life.  A movie about MY life!  It would be shown on Lifetime or Oxygen,” I said with breathy mystery.  I finished brushing while Man laughed at me.

“You are so vain,” he laughed.

“There’s a song about that…”

As I changed into my pjs I plotted the next day’s plans in my head.

“Ooo!  I can’t wait for morning!” I said, “I get to start Body Pump tomorrow!” I pressed an imaginary bar bell over my head.  “Oh!  Ow!  I just did something to my elbow!”

“Pfft.  Made for TV movie….” Man snickered.

“You’ll see…” I promised him as we got into bed. 

“Who will play you?” he asked.

“Lea Michele.  I get that I look like her a lot.”

He grunted some sort of reply as he was already drifting off to sleep.  I rubbed my elbow and laughed to myself.  It would be a pretty boring movie.  Ah well.  And then I had a thought!  I had a wonderfully fabulous thought!

“Hey Babe!” I nudged Man.  “Do you realize that if Neil Patrick Harris plays you and Lea Michele plays ME than the Made-For-TV-Movie about my life can be a MUSICAL?!!!”

“Baby,” he said into his pillow, “Go to sleep.”

“I can’t!  I’m too excited now!  My Life: The Musical….”

“Isn’t it already?”
