The missus and I went to see the broadway version of Beauty and the Beast. It was so good!

It's based on the Disney movie (which is my wife's favourite Disney movie). Some of the songs were different, to make it more musical-like (individual characters needing to emote to the audience what would, in the movie, be done with dialogue and visuals). But some of the trademark songs are there, including Be Our Guest, Beauty and the Beast, the intro, and the song about Gaston.

The object characters (Lumiere, Cogsworth, Mrs. Potts, etc.) were people wearing costumes that were halfway between what they might wear in real-life and the objects they represented. It came across that they were supposed to be enchanted objects

Be Our Guest was a massive song and dance number. Brilliant!

If Beauty and the Beast comes to your city: go see it!

In three weeks' time we have tickets for Pride and Prejudice Smile Not a musical. But stage fun! Truth universally acknowledged, am I right?

Oooooo, I envy you Taral! I always wanted to see Beauty and the Beast on Broadway!
My good thing is that I finished my Luke sketch today and everyone loved it! Smile

I installed a particularly tricky (in that it required a lot of specific configuration) program at work today on one of our servers, but was having trouble getting the associated service started after the fact. Eventually, I decided to track down the error logs to gain insight into the problem. When I found them, this is what they had to say:

"Tried 4 times to start in 30 seconds. I give up."

Cracked me up and totally made my day. Laughing

It's the BMC Remedy AR System we use at work. Usually the log files are fairly straight forward, but somebody had a little fun with this one. Hilarious. Smile

I'll admit, I'm not sure how these on-the-ballot votes for Propositions work in the US, so please forgive me if my terminology is off, but:

Washington State, Maryland, and Maine all passed landmark victories for Marriage Equality!

Regardless of how one feels about the outcome of the election, civil rights were just improved in the US. Not every election can say that.

Gay Johnson got over a million votes nationwide, which is huge for a third-party candidate who hasn't participated in the debates!

Minnesota also defeated their Ban on Gay Marriage Bill. Akin was defeated in Missouri and Mourdock was defeated in Indiana by a Democrat which is amazing because Indiana is a major red state. I'd say the message was loud and clear regarding civil rights and inclusiveness.

Wisconsin also elected the first openly gay U.S. Senator. A good night all around for civil rights.

As I posted in the gripe thread: while cheering that your guy won or that legislation you support passed is a legit thing to consider as your good thing of the day please be mindful of your tone as not everyone is feeling as celebratory as you.

Also using threads to talk/debate about subjects reserved for the Med Grove (and thus circumvent the Med Groves closure) will not be tolerated. So please keep this in mind that discussion can only go so far. This is a place to share things you are happy about, not debate with members the pros/cons of what has made them happy.

(this is a general statement aimed at keeping the peace and not targeted at any individual implicitly or explicitly)

^Speaking of the Med Grove, I'm kind of woried about her (yes I'm calling it her).

Is she still having the infamous Hawaiian fun, and can't be bothered by US elections and such, or is she, as I fear, being permanently held there by the awful Waikiki mafia?

I think the rules are still under review by the mods. Besides, it's probably a good idea to wait a few days for things to calm down before it's opened again.

I think that's a wise course if action. I was personally worried there might be some minor explosions the day after election. Confused
