After watching Wicked last Wednesday with Wayne Young, I realized that I'd been missing out on so much by not watching more musicals in this city.
I love showtunes. There's just something magical about the way people sing and dance and tell stories. I love the way songs foreshadow each other and are reprised. I love the structure of the songs, building to a crescendo or thrilling me with their depths.
And watching the musical was so much better than just listening to the music on Internet radio! Now, listening to the music, I can see the production in my mind's eye. I get goosebumps remembering Elphaba's songs "Defying Gravity" and "No Good Deed".
I can't wait for the next musical. Maybe I'll pick up an appreciation for opera along the way...

Kudos to Dean Michael Berris for telling me about a newly-formed organization for technology evangelists!
The first conference is on December 4. It looks *TOTALLY* awesome.
Are you passionate about technology? Do you thrive on making a difference in people's lives with your passion for technology? Do you get confused sideways looks with raised eyebrows when telling people that you are a Technology Evangelist? If so, GNoTECon is the event for you. It is the industry's first conference to discuss technology evangelism!
It would be *SO* wonderful to meet all of these evangelists. Guy Kawasaki! *The* Guy Kawasaki! Squeeeeeeeee...
I've e-mailed my supervisor to ask if I can take the final exam early. I'll move heaven and earth to be there. And you know me, I'll make a splash somehow.
I feel a little like Peter Pan. If you believe in my technology evangelism, clap your hands and help me make this happen!
So, does anyone know anyone in Santa Clara with whom I can stay?
