I'm so excited

Thanks to all for the nice comments about my last post. I’m feeling better about it overall. Those things happen and I know I didn’t do anything wrong. Now they better pay me for my last invoice, which dates back to September. The manager even had the audacity to call me (yesterday) and ask why I had sent a statement. I simply answered: “Because I haven’t been paid for that invoice”. She used this foolish line: “the check was sent while you were away, and it must have been lost”. Funny how I got everything else, since our mail was being picked up daily. Anyway, with that last conversation, I can only say “Good riddance!”

Tomorrow night, at this time I’ll be pretty excited. Why you may ask? Because I’ll be getting ready to attend a lovely evening with my husband to “La Place des Arts” (The Arts Place, not that it really translates) to see, live, in Montréal, Robin Williams! I’m so excited! I love the man; he’s in a category of his own.

I love him as an actor as well, even if a few of his last films were a bit creepy. I must say he does play a good lunatic. I have my favourites from him: “Dead Poets Society”, “Mrs Doubtfire”, “Good Morning, Vietnam”, “What Dreams May Come” (one of my all time fav.), how he played the Genie in “Aladdin”, “Good Will Hunting” and of course his voices of Ramon and Lovelace in “Happy Feet” to name a few. The man is just too much. Can’t wait to see him.

A few years back I bought Hubby a DVD “Live on Broadway” and that was hilarious. If you’ve seen it, that last scene when he talks about the last thing a woman sees and his hairy arm… I cried the first time I’ve seen it, and I still laugh every time I think of it, don’t even need to see it. If you haven't seen it, give yourself a treat and rent it, it is so worth it. We talked about watching it again tonight before we actually see him… to get in the spirit of sort.

This is suppose to be my birthday gift, but I have this sneaking suspicion that Hubby got us tickets because he wanted to see him just as bad as I ever did. That’s fine by me! Hee.

I thought his Live on Broadway concert would kill me via aneurysm. If I were to pop the tape(yes, I said tape) in right now I'm sure I'd be endangering my vascular system within minutes. He is easily one of the funniest stand-ups ever.

I guess I'm just a freak. I actually stress out when I have overdue invoices! If I get a call from a vendor saying "hey, I don't have payment on such and such invoice" I will stop everything to find out WHY and resolve it. ..sigh...too bad the whole world isn't honest, right?

Good luck getting paid. I hope you charged them late fees. ha..ha...

And have fun at the show! I can only imagine what Robin Williams is like live. :)
