I just realized what you guys have been doing. You’re all picking musicals for your birthdays so you know I won’t say no. You’re lucky I love you all so much.
And I really do love MT, so of course I’m willing to spend two and a half hours (HOW IS IT THAT LONG?!) watching West Side Story for her (late) birthday.
As I was getting ready to write this post this morning, I realized I’d been humming “Gee, Officer Krupke” to myself and couldn’t figure out WHY THAT SONG, especially since I’m pretty sure I’ve only seen this once, and how the hell did I know all the words?!
Then I remembered that for a brief period of time in high school, I was totally obsessed with Punk Side Story, which is pretty much exactly what it sounds like – a punk cover of the entire soundtrack. Give it a listen (although, maybe not with the kids around, since there’s a fuckton of swearing added).
I didn’t really leave myself enough time to talk about what an incredible person MT is, and why I will be forever grateful to JK Rowling for bringing her into my life. Instead, have this picture of us while we were doing the Interview with the Vampire drinkalong:
