My One and Only
Monday, March 7, 2005

It's 10:48 p.m do you know where your brain is?

I just got back from the theatre. I can't even begin to explain how much I love going to the theatre. I am an admitted showtune junkie and going to see live shows just makes me so feel warm and fuzzy inside.

Tonight I saw Gershwin's My One and Only and once again shiny goodness ensued. S'wonderful, S'marvelous...lalalala... Ok so I can't sing or really dance for that matter, but boy do I wish I'd stuck to the tap dance lessons when I was 5.

Now just one strange thing about me and theatre experiences. Every time I go I bawl like a baby. Which is ok, if it's RENT, Ragtime, Aida, or some other heart wrenching show. The thing is, even the happy ending, romantical ones (like My One and Only) really get to me. I turn into this overly emotional dork. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the feeling it gives me, but I don't see a lot of other people (ok no one at all) reacting in this way. So am I weird or what?

I don't generally cry at the theater, but I have been misting up a lot lately at movies and tv shows. I think it started when I first saw Armageddon.

I get misty at lots of theatre events as well. . .it just means that they're doing what they intend to do. . .catching you up and carrying you away with them.

woohoo! me too, me too. I love the theater! I've been known to cry at such events too. However if you're asking if you're weird, then being like me may not be what you want to hear.

You're just fine -- frankly I can't understand when people *don't* react to things. The world is so amazing!
I've always been the wierd one to be unabashedly emotional at things as well -- I've stood in many museums, surrounded by people and quietly wept. I watch the news and am torn by grief. I've seen the Bolshoi and other ballet or symphony and was moved to tears for the beauty of it. The sights of wild nature make me tremble with awe. Laughter thrills me. (Five signs in Pisces and rising moon in Cancer, go figure).
Being in touch with your emotions shows that you are aware of *life*.

Nah, s'not weird. I teared up the first time I saw the Serenity trailor, simply because I was overwhelmed with excitement and joy at our BDH's coming back. Of course, I also had a grin a mile wide that didn't depart for hours.

(In retrospect, maybe s'not wasn't the best contraction to use...)
