I was MIA for the past week because the overtime at work has still been crazy, plus I found out I had to write a paper on top of that. Something had to give, and unfortunately it was the blog. In the absence of anything more meaningful to discuss, Christmas exploded on the condo this … More Decorating for the Holidays!
This weekend, I devoured Rick Riordan’s newest book. It was about a homeless boy in Boston who discovers that his father was a Norse god. Joaquin could not wait for this one, because he loves Norse mythology. We are both big Rick Riordan fans; we’ve read all of the Percy Jackson books, the Lost Hero, … More Magnus Chase
So this week, I decided to play songs about France, or from shows set in France. It was a really fun list to put together!

Sadly, it isn’t happening. There are only … More What I’m reading right now

Here are the songs I chose: Two Lost Souls – Damn Yankees Jane Krakowski and Cheyenne Jackson! I never knew … More This week on Broadway Radio…
I’m not as big on Hallowe’en as apparently 98% of the rest of the world. I am pretty impressed by some of the amazing costumes that made their way onto social media (especially the ones that weren’t just an excuse to bare all the skin) I wanted to do something to commemorate the day at … More Pumpkin Madness
