Birthday Drinkalong: West Side Story

wss gif

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.

West Side Story Drinking Game

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:

  1. Musicals are allowed?! Please see my recent FB post where I discovered Hugh Jackman in the lead of Oklahoma!, an even cheesier and somehow even longer musical than this one. How far away is November?

  2. Ya know… All That Jazz is a pretty awesome musical slash depressing Drama. Maybe I should pick that one 😀

    Or The Pirates of Penzance… man… Kevin Kline as the Pirate King ❤
