Bawdy puppet show musicals, and scottish golf

C and I went with a group of friends to see AVENUE Q last night. I saw it in LA back in September of 97 and raved about it, so we knew if it ever came through Sacramento we had to go see it. It did, and we did.

It was a blast! Funny songs ("It Sucks To Be Me", "Everyone's A Little Bit Racist", "If You Were Gay"), tawdry songs ("The Internet Is For Porn", "You Can Be As Loud As the Hell You Want (When You're Makin' Love")) and also some very nice, touching, sentimental songs ("I Wish I Could Go Back To College", "There's a Fine, Fine, Line"). The puppet work was great, and even though the performers are onstage with the puppets after a while you're primarily looking at the puppets.

Audio and video clips from the show are available on the website. Next stops on the tour are Omaha, Costa Mesa, Austin, Cincinnati, and Appleton. I highly recommend the show. If you get a chance to see it, go check it out!

After that, I woke up early this morning to go play golf at Haggin Oaks. It was cool, slightly wet, and windy - perfect "scottish golf" weather for a course designed by Alastair MacKenzie. Friend from work RB, his son NB, and I played the front 9. I had a fantastic day, with rock-solid driving, good pitching and clipping, and laser-like putting. Final score for the front nine was 49! That's under 50, and a mere 13 over par, including closing bogey-par-par. For me, who is happy with triple bogey golf, that's an awesome day!
