9 to 5


This past Tuesday my friends Monica and Kris and I got away from the grind of the Barn and headed downtown to see 9 to 5: The Musical at the Hobby Center.  If you’re not a Dolly Parton fan, then don’t continue to read.  (Actually, if you’re not a Dolly Parton fan then we probably shouldn’t be friends.)

Being a Tuesday, the audience wasn’t exactly brimming so we decided to take over some box seats that were empty! Ummm… I mean we paid full price for them? :-/

We’re smiling because there aren’t any customers around

Because we met at the Barn and carpooled (Kris got free valet parking because she drives a Lexus and they are a sponsor) we had to go back to Town and Country to get our cars.  At 10:30 there was still a group there doing Holiday 2 floorset and so as an after dinner treat Monica and I busted in and had some of my CTS cake for dessert.  I’d like to think we were a breath of fresh air after a long evening of putting ornaments on trees, but I get the feeling they were actually pretty grumblies we had been out having a fab.u.lous night on the town without them.  You’ll notice that Kris is not in the cake eating pictures… that’s because she’s a mature adult and decided not to come in… but not Monica and I!

It’s like looking in a mirror, isn’t it?

You know, ‘cause I kinda had to!


Artist: Dolly Parton/ Album: 9 to 5: The Musical


  1. I'm actually so jealous I'm having trouble typing this. You know I LOVE Dolly and I really want to see 9to5. These crazies up here have no respect for culture (or boobies, apparently) so it's not coming anywhere near here!
