That time Neil Patrick Harris gave me chills. Again.

Tomorrow, if anyone asks you what happened at the Tonys, you can say this:
We straightened things out in the opening number, 
Ellen Barkin and John Benjamin Hickey took home awards
for their hilarious performances in “The Normal Heart.”
Daniel Radcliffe kicked some butt, and we were so elated
Even Voldemort was sad he wasn’t nominated
Norbert Leo Butz sang and danced and tried to catch ya, comin’ atcha,
Chasing Trey and Casey ‘cause they nabbed a Tony statue
Commencing in the Chattanooga station
From the grand imagination of the Kander-Ebb collaboration
It takes a lot for a recipient to humble me
But everybody cried for gorgeous Nikki James, the bumblebee
Andrew Rannells sang “I Believe” and he landed it
So well now he’s Mitt Romney’s V.P. candidate
All across the country, from the north and to the south
They’re saying Brooke’s a hottie with a crazy potty mouth
John Larroquette brought an eloquent mood to the room
I’m still imagining him at home in his Fruit-of-the-Looms
Spider-Man and Mary-Jane gave us perspective here
They sang a ballad, we didn’t need protective gear
Patina Miller’s nun sang “Raise Your Voice” with cheer
And “Memphis” is relentless, they’re performing every year
“The Normal Heart” won, Larry Kramer made us weep
And “War Horse” dazzled us with a theatrical sweep
Sutton Foster never lost her knack
For talking smack
And tapping a full-on assault attack
I’m awesome, Hugh Jackman, take that
Go ahead and roll the credits if you need to
I’m out of control, I’m on a roll, this is my Tonys speed-through
“Anything Goes” took the best revival prize in stride
We didn’t see it, we were singing “Side By Side By Side.”
McDormand loves her job, Sutton Foster won again
Paul Shaffer sang and suddenly it started raining men
Mark Rylance runs at fences, he’s won the Tony twice
That guy can do it all, his follow-up is “Fanny Bryce.”
Norbert Butz and “Mormon” swept the floor,
Won even more awards than “War Horse”
Par for the course,
Someone get a car for the horse
And in the final analysis, what survives tonight?
Theater, because it’s what we live, we’re changing some lives tonight
And theater thrives because we live to give it, so to speak
This ain’t reality TV, this is eight shows a week
Every chorus member that you saw tonight tappin’
Had to make miracles happen
For a chance to see you clappin’
And applauding in the audience. What’s next? Who knows?
Anything goes. Now go see a ____________ Broadway show.
Thank you, good night.

Dear Future Husband--Part 1

Dear future husband,

This will be our kids. I am serious.

Well--not the song choice
but definitely the cuteness explosion,
the sweet dance moves,
the stunna stylishness
and the desire to perform.

Just giving you a heads up.

xoxo Kat

Reasons I Don't Want a Kindle

So I just read the following post over at this blog.
Top 5 Reasons I Don't Want a Kindle
1. I prefer the feel of a book.
2. I'm making my way to owning my own personal library (I already have four bookcases in my bedroom alone - and my bedroom isn't that big).
3. Everyone keeps going on about how amazing Kindles are and it's started to annoy me.
4. I like being old-school and outdated.
5. I like how books smell (which sounds weird but that's me all over).

Saying that, my mum won a Kindle but, since she already has an e-reader, she gave it to me.
     Needless to say, I love it.  Don't get me wrong, I still prefer books, but there is something about the Kindle that makes me love it.  Maybe it's the fact that I like to think of it as a mini brain full of information.
     Moral of this story?  Buy a Kindle.
My thoughts exactly.
Well except her 3 & 4 -- I am a tech addict.

1. I prefer the feel of a book.
I do! I love how sometimes it is easy to hold it.
But sometimes holding is a pain in the ass.
I love turning each page because I can't wait to
see what is waiting for me on the other side.

2. I'm making my way to owning my own personal library.
I may or may not be a minor hoarder but
I love owning series books. Books in general.
And when it comes to series I am crazy anal.
If I start with a paperback, all must be paperback.
Same with having a hardcover start a series.
Or with special covers, like a UK  cover.
Or alt covers/new art work releases.
I'm like this with DVDs too.
And although a Kindle still displays a cover,
well, it's just not the same.

5. I like how books smell.
That is my first memory of my favorite library.
Opening up a book and just breathing in the aroma from the page. 
I know this one kinda goes with #1 but still.

That being said...
If I got one for free, I would not shun it.
Sure, sure the free aspect doesn't hurt, but it is tech.
And I heart tech even if it doesn't heart me back.

The biggest reason I would support owning a Kindle
(or any eReader for that matter):
Although I love my personal library-
when I have to move houses/apartments
It. Is. A. Bitch. to move my books.
So heavy, so many.
When you have an eReader library,
obviously, one doesn't have this problem..

Do you have an eReader?
What do you think?
