damn yankees, getting attacked, iphone 2.0

i am obsessed with these. ah, rabies.

damn yankees was better the second time around. much cleaner. and they do the best they can with a dusty musical that sounds more like one of those gershwin mashup musicals. you know, the ones that are put together after the songs are written and someone tries to make a coherent story out of them. it feels like that. lots of catchy songs but no real story to draw you in. and spoiler alert! the main guy is a "good guy" who stays faithful to his wife but then decides he loves baseball more and then cheats on said wife even though he held out through 90% of the play. dude has got no virtue! but bri did introduce me to cheyenne jackson whose eyes are twice as big as they look onstage. he ought to be a disney character. i also got to meet his charming boyfriend monte, who i kind of want to be my new best friend. he was brilliant. full of sophisticated, nuanced, wry comments about our company and life in general. really really lovely. why don't they make his kind in a heterosexual version? every guy i meet who i think i'd like to spend the rest of my life with are gay. every. single. goddamn. time.

so i'm walking down the street, listening to my ipod. i see a scrawny almost-homeless, definitely drunk guy. i see him see me and start to walk toward me. i'm sure at this point he's talking to me (can't hear him though, bless those earphones) and though i try to swerve away from him, he gets right up on me and i give him the finger. at that point, i see his leg start to rise and before i realize it, my arm is coming down to whack at the foot that is headed towards my side. crazy homeless man is trying to kick me! but i defended myself  with lightening speed and he nearly fell backward once i pushed his leg back at him. i have mad skills. i might be a jedi master. or a ninja.

am excited to download 2.0 software on my iphone but don't want it bricked so i'll wait. patiently. and patience isn't a virtue i posess, really, so this may be difficult.

update: download of 2.0 went smoothly though it took ages. trying to figure out what my favorite apps are, will report back!

You should have downloaded the free Phone Sabre app that turns your iphone into a light sabre.

Then you could have zapped that homeless guy like Darth Vader zapped Obi Wan and you would really be a Jedi master.

Glad you're safe. In what neighborhood did that happen?

Other fun apps: Movies One Tap; NYTimes; voice notes; Virgin Radio; and if you play a stringed musical instrument, omnituner which turns your mic and speaker into a digital guitar (6 and 12 string with various alternate tunings), mandolin, violin, and other instrument tuner.

I'm a Tetris junkie, but $10. Screw that!
