Deck Work & Puppet Sex
Once we were done sanding we went over and started spray painting the railing, I had purchased two cans of black spray paint and figured it would be enough.Well it wasn't.. we did manage to spray the front of the railings but that was it.
I went back to the deck and tested a patch of wood with the dark walnut stain that I had gotten. It made the deck look like it had been on fire, it was a sooty black. So we made a trip to Lowes to pick up more spray paint and to also find a lighter stain.
I arrived home with a special walnut and it looked alot lighter on the can, we I did a test patch and it was a bit lighter then the sooty black one but not by much. I never knew staining could be so difficult. Well I decided to go with the special walnut as I didn't want to back to Lowes again.. I just wanted to get it done. Arron started on one end and I started on the other and we got about half of the deck stained before we had to go.
Aaron and I picked up our friends Jes and Dallas and made the 83.5 mile trek out to Chaffey Collage. We got down there a bit early and after driving around for what felt like forever we finally settled on Chili's for dinner. We got to the collage around 6:30 and ran into Nicole and her roommate as well as Josh's family (Mom, Dad & Brother). Got our tickets, got in line and made our way into the theater. We found some prime seats. A few minutes later our friends Robert and Cait arrived and joined the group. I think our entire group took up 2/3's of a row.
Josh plays Brian one of the humans. The only song I knew from this play was The Internet Is For Porn. This isn't for kids, it's a very adult show... there's even puppet sex.
I loved every minute of it. The set was well done, the actors were great, especially some of the actors/puppeteers they were just amazing. I had a hard time choosing between watching the puppet or the actor. I loved the songs, so much so that I'll probably go out and get the soundtrack. Josh of course was awesome, but then again I'm a bit bias :)
The play just flew by and before I knew it, it was over. We got to say a quick hi to Josh before heading back home. I had to drop off Jes and Dallas first before heading home with Aaron who was once again crashing at my place.
It was a good day.. got some work done on the house but also got to spend some time with friends and watch a friend in a play that I've wanted to see for years.
