Christmas Playlist 2010

With Christmas just two days away, my holiday playlist is on full blast! Here’s just a sampling of the songs that are playing in my apartment:

Remember what buddy says: “The best way to spread Christmas cheer is by singing loud for all to hear!”



Female Inspiration

To go along with my list of guys, here are my top 10 female performers I am most inspired by…

10. Vera-Ellen, i watch her dance and it’s exactly how i want to move.

9. Ann Miller, first time i watched her tap i thought, i didn’t know that was humanly possible. perfection.

8. Karen Ziemba, she’s an absolute broadway gem. i could watch her perform all the time!

7. Bernadette Peters, no explanation is needed for her brilliance.

6. Nataly Dawn (voice of Pomplamoose), i absolutely love her voice. plus she’s so hipster!

5. Audrey Hepburn, true class.

4. Sutton Foster, i want her career. she’s truly amazing. i want go on out of fear of looking like a complete dork.

3. Julie Andrews, if i could choose anyone to be my mother besides my own, julie would be my choice. What a wonderful singer, actress, and person.

2. Judy Garland, every time I watch her I am in awe.

1. Ginger Rogers, she did everything Fred did but backwards and in heels. that pretty much sums up her amazingness!


I’m not one to blog about my love life…

… but I felt prompted to today. Everyone asks me if I’ve met anyone while I’ve been in NY. Not really. Seeing as the only guys I see are at work and most of them bat for the opposite team, I really haven’t met many straight men (remotely close to my age as well.)

So on nights like these where I wish I was on a cute Manhatten dinner date, I’m actually sitting at home eating oreos and watching White Christmas. This happens a lot, but a different musical/romantic comedy. I watch all these dreamy guys on screen and I think about what my dream man is… K, here’s my top 10.

10. Danny Kaye 

9. a straight version of Cheyenne Jackson

8. Jimmy

7. Jeffery Denman

6. Noah

5. Donald O’Connor

4. Gilbert

3. Fred Astaire

2. Mr. Darcy 

1. Gene Kelly

I realize that I’m in love with fictional characters and men that I’ve only see play fictional characters, but until Mr. Right comes along, these men will just have to do.


p.s. sorry im not much of a blogger these day. work keeps me very busy and i’m about to have a butt load of visitors for the holidays! so my blogging will probably be less frequent for the rest of the month. merry christmas and happy holidays!

Please be my friend on the Facebook

day 4- a habit that you wish you didn’t have

Whenever I get onto the internet, 7 of 10 times my fingers will automatically type in Facebook, even if I’m not planning on going there. I’m on Facebook way too much. I love it, but it’s addicting.

Maybe lessing my facial book time on will be a resolution come 2011. But I still have a few weeks left of 2010…



Singular Sensations

day 3- a picture of you and your friends

This photo was of 2 years ago when we performed the opening number of A Chorus Line for Rafa on Bway. We all had so much fun and I just adore this photo.


Thoughts shared, souls bared, telephone calls

day 2- the meaning behind your blog name

The title of this blog is exactly as it seems. Its about my adventures with all the wonderful people I have in my life. Even though blogs are a very personal thing, almost like a public journal, I didn’t want my blog to be all about me. I’m so blessed to have such amazing friends and people who love and support me. I love the company I have in my life.

“Phone rings, door chimes, in comes Company!
No strings, good times, room hums, Company!
Late nights, quick bites, party games,
Deep talks, long walks, telephone calls.
Thoughts shared, souls bared, private names,
All those photos up on the walls.”

Thank you Mr. Sondheim.
