Night out on the town!!

Last weekend Nathan and I went on a date with Tyler and Fern. We went out to the Jet City Improv at the Historic University Theatre. But first w needed to kill some time. So we went to a Tully's down the street and played Skipo. For those that have not played skipo before, it's pretty fun, even though I'm pretty sure I haven't won yet. (if you know me, that says a lot about a game)

Jet City improv is very similar to who's line is it anyway. They play different games where the actors have to improv based on audience participation. What I really liked about the Jet City, is they pride themselves in being clean family appropriate comedy. Not too easy to find in Seattle. They were so funny! Fern and I had a lot of fun giving suggestions!

After the show we went to Beth's Cafe. Only the best place to get omelets. Fern forgot to tell Tyler about the 'type' of people that worked there. I'm pretty sure he was a little leery of the place when we first went in. If you've never been there before the place seems pretty shady, but its definitely a diamond in the ruff. We had a great time, the food was amazing like always!

It was a lot of fun, can't wait for our next Oppie/Thompson date night!

Offical Business..

I had a really neat experience last night. I was able to take part in listener advisory board meeting. I filled out a servey for movin 92.5 about their morning show. They also asked if I would be willing to take part a member of the listener advisory board. I said yes, but figured I wouldn't get picked. So I took the survey and forgot about the whole thing.

Monday I get a call from Maynard, one of the producers/dj's on the show asking if I wanted to come in on wednesday. I went into their office in Bellevue wednesday evening along with 14 other women and they asked us about what we listen to in the mornings, what we do and don't like about their morning show (the ladies room) and what suggestions we have for them. It was a really neat experience. They were really interested in what we had to say and wrote down the ideas we came up with. I'm interested in seeing if they use any of our ideas!

After the meeting, they took us around the studio and we got to meet Kaz, the evening DJ and listen to him talk on the air. They sent us on our way with a goodie bag with a waterbottle, pen, window cling, etc. But the best thing they are giving us is a pair of tickets to their house party!! Its a big concert they do one a year (like most radio stations) with a bunch of old school groups. Like last year they had Coolio, Rob Base & DJ E-Z Rock, Naughty By Nature, and
Tony! Toni! Toné. So I'm excited to see who they have this year!

So in recap, I have gone to Shrek the music for free (which by the way in AMAZING!!!!! If you have a chance to see it, GO. I can't even explain to you how cool it was, costumes, the stage, quality of singing and acting were supurb. Its going straight to broadway after it's here in seattle) I will be going to so you think you can dance, the house party and we will be going to Phantom of the Opera this year too. Its the year of shows, in the last 4 months of the year at least!

One more thing for you to be jealous about...

Yup, we must just be that cool. I'd like to think so.

So please try not to start stalking us because you are so jealous that you want to become like us. Our amazing friends Fern and Tyler Thompson are really the ones to be jealous of. They were given tickets to Shrek the Musical, and just happened to have 2 extra tickets. Because we have bribed them to be our friends, they have asked us to go with them!

What is Shrek the musical you ask? Its the untold stories of Shrek based on the movie and book (didn't know there was one). And after a pit stop in seattle, the show is off to Broadway!!

You can read more about it here.

I will let you know all about it after we go tonight! I can't wait!!!
