Babs was amazing. Girlfriend has still got it going on at 64. Her voice is as clear as it was 20 years ago and she looks fabulous. I admit to being a bit hesitant when hearing that Il Divo would be performing with her but they in fact complimented her. It was a brilliant show that I highly recommend to anyone. And like Barbara said to the (asshole Republican) heckler during the political skit -- don't come to the show if you disagree with my politics, just buy my music.
Ft. Lauderdale is really a very pretty place. I was expecting it to be much bigger; over-populated; and dirty like so many other larger cities but found it to be very charming. The shopping at Sawgrass Mills is to die for. Saks, Neimans, and Nordstrom CLEARANCE centers? Who knew such a thing? I managed to do a little damage and for very little money. The best bargains I saw were at Neiman's Last Call; a D&G sweater for $60 and an Armani suit for $280!?! Too bad neither were in my size. I did find a few cool shirts; a Lacoste sweater; and some shorts on clearance so it was all good.
After being gone for 5 nights I am glad to be home. There is nothing like sleeping in my own bed and using my own shower. And seeing my honey after 5 days was awesome. He was so sweet and detailed my car for me while I was gone and had cleaned the house to near perfection. Add to this he had a wonderful dinner cooking by the time I pulled into the driveway. I just love me some T.
Well, I have a little over an hour to grab some coffee for the road and drive across the city for class so I'm outta here. I have an exam the first 1/2 of class so wish me luck.
