Sarcophagi & Cartouches, oh my!

Last week, Ken and I stayed out for a night on the town in Chicago and saw "Rent" at the Cadillac Palace Theater. I don't have any pictures because of the psycho lady who screamed when anyone even pretended to take a photo inside. We had excellent seats and the performance was amazing! I had seen the movie (lame!), but the real thing was fantastic. Based on all the Rentophiles around us who knew when to stand up and give special whoops and hollers, it fulfilled their expectations as well. Ken and I were singing the songs on the way back to the train, and the next morning, and the morning after that... It was a very nice Valentine's Day. I even got a rose. Mind you, it was picked up off the ground. But it's still alive!

Then on Friday, I headed home to get my hair cut and for the rehearsal dinner for Zack and Krystal's wedding. It was a grand time, both the rehearsal and the actual wedding day. Everything was beautiful... The bride was radiant and the groom handsome, just as it should be. The groomsmen behaved themselves --- surprisingly. And Laura and I had a chance to relax at their house without pantyhose and high heels for a few hours. We stayed out late and saw old friends. Here's to a great marriage for Zack and Krystal!

I can't take credit for the photos as Ken took all of the shots for the day.

The biggest news as of late? Well, it was mentioned in passing last week, but yesterday, it was basically confirmed. I am going to be sent to Egypt and Jordan sometime at the end of spring/early summer! Whoo! I had a meeting with the bosses who just returned from the trip and they basically said that two of us were going to be heading over to check it out for ourselves. What does this mean? My company uses 5 star hotels... We will be staying at the Four Seasons where we will either have pyramid view or Nile view rooms. Wow. Anyways, you never know what will happen, but it would be a great bonus to be sent on this "unusual journey" with my company. In fact, it's really one of the only places that I would want to have a guide with me at the sites and restaurants. Most other places, I'd prefer to flashpack it on my own. Here's hoping that this all goes through smoothly! One other lady who started last year is headed to Italy tomorrow to check out hotels. Nice...
