A Wicked Birthday

All last week Kevin had been asking me what I wanted for my birthday. I usually give him lots of clues pretty early on but this year, I didn't really see anything that I wanted. Until Saturday when he opened the newspaper and in a quick flash I saw a full page ad for Wicked: A New Musical. I've been wanting to see this show for several years, but when it would come I never went. So on a whim, I told him that I wanted tickets to see Wicked. I wasn't really expecting him to get them, but he did! He's such a wonderful husband! It's not till March though. But still another countdown to add to my list.

For those that aren't soccer nuts, next year is the World Cup in South Africa. On Friday the draws came out. Group C is USA, Algeria, Slovenia and....England. Now I'm not much of a MNT fan, I've watched a few games and they just frustrate me to no end. I prefer to watch the WNT. So anyways on Friday, Kevin sends me an email that says:
From: Kevin
To: The Wife
Subject: South Africa 2010

England's world cup group fixtures:
12 June
v USA, Rustenberg
18 June v Algeria, Cape Town
23 June v Slovenia, Nelson Mandela Bay, Port Elizabeth

Winner on the 12th gets to pick the name?
I quickly responded with "Heck no! Our men’s team is crap!" I'm sorry but I'm not risking the name of our child on a team that is 2-7 against England with the only wins happening in 1950 and 1993.

My favorite play. Ever. It's great, you'll love it!

For what it's worth (not much), Michael thinks we'll beat England on the 12th.

I'll be eating poppers & thinking of you guys! :)
