Green Eyed Monster

Lovelies, my life lately has been something like this book:

Being out in the Hamptons I have been so envious of things that I can't have - and I totally have champagne taste on a less than beer budget! Aarugh - to be around the wealthy and have no wealth yourself sucks.

And I REALLY want this dress from Calypso, but really have no way to pay for it! (I'm taking up an online collection for this new dress -just go to

101st post!

Oh, lovelies - Happy 101th Post Day!

For todays blog I thought I'd tell you all about the most expensive sex toy in NYC.


I got an e-mail from Pocket Change about it. (Perhaps you'll be as in awe as I am... A Jewel Encrusted Member... It sounds like the title of a novel, no?) This model below is the little sister - you have to click on the Pocket Change link to see the jewels up close!

Here's the description:

What: Mi-Su Titanium Diletto
Where: Kiki De Montparnasse
Price: $3750 (*Miss Musical's response to this = HOLY SWEET JESUS!!*)
Justification: Before, During & After

What better way to spend money than on pure pleasure? This exact question was on the minds of Kiki owners Jennifer and Andrew when they decided to open Kiki de Montparnasse, a luxury boutique of inspired gifts and indulgences to enhance intimacy and romance. While the products are intended to provoke love between people, each embodies such beauty as to cause one to fall in love with the objects themselves.

The "diletto," (a Native American word meaning "ripples in the pond"), designed by Mi-Su, is hand sculpted from solid hypoallergenic titanium. It is ergonomically designed to yield pleasure and stimulate the g-spot while resisting corrosion (good news for water lovers) and retaining heat, and is an excellent choice for those trying to add a little spice to a situation. The handle of each diletto is embellished with twenty precious sapphires set into 18ct gold and inlaid permanently into titanium. The design was created to be an echo of the true human form, bringing ultimate pleasure and a sexy aesthetic.

The products at Kiki run the gamut, from a sex chair to fine art to jewelry that doubles as functional adornment and pleasure-inducing instrument. Not only are the products for sale stimulating, but the store itself is an experience. One particularly intriguing space is the dressing room, replete with three lighting levels- "before," "during," and "after." With so much pleasure concentrated in such an small space, it is hard not to get excited.

Oh. My. God. (who spends crazy money on stuff like this?!) If you want to find your very own pleasure treasure go here:

For the time being I think I'll just stick to my purchases at the Smitten Kitten in Minneapolis or A Woman's Touch in Madison. (BTW - both have EXCELLENT Shipping rates. Just FYI) Also, I'm not a total sex freak... Really... I just enjoy a little naughty-ness evey now & again! (who doesn't - let's be honest here!) Happy browsing, my lovelies!

Lovelies - I got a lovely inspirational in the e-mail today! It really made me step back & think:

Do you believe, deep down inside of you, that you can succeed in what you want to do?

Beliefs are strong, and they have the power to attract what is believed to us. If we doubt our ability to succeed, if we in fact believe we WON'T succeed, then sure enough, that's what will happen. What do you believe about yourself? You have the power to change your beliefs, and that will change your outcome. Set goals you believe you can accomplish. Your beliefs will shape your actions. As you achieve these goals, you'll begin to believe you are capable of succeeding and of doing even more.

"It is better to believe than to disbelieve; in so doing you bring everything to the realm of possibility." – Albert Einstein

"Believe it can be done. When you believe something can be done, really believe, your mind will find the ways to do it. Believing a solution paves the way to solution." – Dr. David Schwartz

"Imagination is just the beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire; you will what you imagine; and at last you create what you will."-- George Bernard Shaw

I have found that this is a daily effort for me. I have to be very persistent in telling myself "I can do this!" or "I'm good enough to be on Broadway" or"I deserve a husband and family" and the hardest of all "I love myself."

Does anyone else out there in CyberLand need to do these affirmations? I think in the acting field where there is so much rejection and also in the dating field (in my case) where there's also rejection I just find that I'm constantly re-assuring myself that I can do this!

Perhaps if I had a job where I actually advance and have validation through moving up the ranks in position that would be different, but in my current situation the self-belief positive esteem boosters are a flyin'!

One Cup of Crazy & Two Scoops of Paranoid!

Lovelies. I have a problem. Big problem: I like my friend. Not like as in "Let's hang out & grab an ice cream" like, but like as in "Why didn't I find him that attractive a few months ago and now I want to pretty much spend every waking moment with him?!"

And now I've got something in common with James VanDerBeeks character on Dawson's Creek: I'm totally crushin' on my friend who doesn't even know ANYTHING about the extent of my feelings for him.

We get along famously and truly enjoy one anothers company. He's good for vollying ideas off of (I'd like to Volly some other things off him too - if you catch my drift - wink, wink!) and over all I think he's a fantastic human being. He makes me laugh, we enjoy similar things and I want to spend all my time with him. Plus I'm day dreaming now about him - which gets me into a whole world of hurt.

I feel such a sadness about this, my lovelies, because I'm almost 100% sure that he doesn't fancy me. He's had options to tell me. Lots of times that would've been appropriate, but it's never come up. Breaks my heart in half, as I hear him talk about how he wants to have a partner in crime ("Hello! I do Too!") a family ("Are you LISTENING - Me TOO!") and a fabulous person to spend his time with (I'M RIGHT HERE!!!!). Lovelies, frustration doesn't even begin to explain it.

But at the end of the day, he doesn't like girls with my physique - I know this for a fact. He's into rail-thin girls who are extremely beautiful. I am normal sized and girl-next-door pretty. It's a shame. (I know this makes him sound really shallow, and I sound like a brain-washed women. But I still like him all the same - does anyone have any good advice for me? I'm open to anything at this point.)
So why do I still like him? Is it that "you want what you can't have" syndromes? I sure hope that this crush goes away soon & I can forget about wanting a life of family, companionship & love with this man.

Scott Bakula is Hot.

Lovelies, I'm watching Quantum Leap on Netflix right now and I'm totally diggin' Scott Bakula! He's a freakin' romantic and sensitive dude on that show! (and c'mon - how many of you totally loved him on Murphey Brown?!? I did!) It's just a fun show to watch - and a lot more interesting story-wise then half the crap that's on TV today.

I enjoy the show Quantum Leap like I enjoy the book The Time Travelers Wife: a little sci-fi, a little romance, a little history and a whole lotta cheezy. LOVE IT!

Plus I love that he (Scooter Bakula) is a song & dance nut, like myself, as he GOT A TONY NOMINATION in 1988 for Romance Romance - and lost to "The Phantom of the Opera" Michael Crawford.... (Bite Me Crawford - you are a Brit and should win awards in your OWN COUNTRY! Leave my Missouri boy to win his own award!)

It did bum me out though to find out that Scott Bakula is 54 years old. (Let's be honest here -there's some other men who are 54, or getting close to it, that I'd totally do.... cough, Kevin McCollum... cough, cough....) It also bummed me out to see the pics of his glamourous spouse who is giz-orgeous! Even though she is a little old. Oh, to be born with good metabolism. I missed that boat. Sigh...

Are you ready?

I'm so ready for this - I can't even tell you! (Even if 1 cookie is 3 points - damn you Weight Watchers!)

Flights, Shows & Re-caps...

Lovelies, I'm back - AGAIN- in the Hapmtons & loving it. I also loved my time at home in Minnesota and wanted to do a little re-cap for you!
The Things I did:

- Saw Little House on the Prairie the Musical starring a grown up Melissa Gilbert (who played Laura in the TV series) as Ma Ingalls. She did a very respectable job! And my lovely friend No.Lo. played the school teacher Miss Wilder - she was so funny - and looks scarily like the woman who played Miss Wilder on the TV show!

- Watched Twins whoop the Yankees (FINALLY) on Wed. afternoon with Coffee Man and his entire Coffee Crew! (It was a business outing & they got to bring family/ friends along! Was a blast!)

- Went to have coffee with Graydon Royce of the Minneapolis Star Tribune. We talked shop. (aka Theatre) I love chatting with him & hearing his ideas on shows. He's a REALLY smart & articulate guy. Guess that comes in handy when you're writing those theatre reviews.

- Took 2 Yoga classes from my girl Becks at Core Power Yoga. AWESOME classes - I sweated my ass off!
- Attended 2 weight watchers meetings - and LOST 4 POUNDS!!! I'm on my way, lovelies, on my way!

- Went cosmic bowling with Winterhalter at Park Tavern (did anyone else know that Ladies bowl for free on Tuesday nights AND drink for FREE from 9-10pm? I didn't!) Was a nice surprise! Plus I got some good scores - I'm a decent bowler friends!

-Holls for drinkys on Friday night at Moscow on the Hill. That was fun! We went to Pizza Luce after with the brilliant director R.Go.

- Auditioned for Grey Gardens at the Ordway/Park Square theatre - was a pretty good audition, but no callbacks. ...Son-of-biatch.

- Hung out with Craw for her going away from the Guthrie party on Wednesday night - the Cue bar was packed with her nearest & dearest.

- Saw the new Star Wars exhibit at the MN science Museum with Coffee Man. We have such fun together - he makes me giggle! (Plus his eyes match the color of his Audi car, so that's kinda fun!)

- SANG my ass off at the Ordway! Hooray for Legally Blonde Medley and the Vaudeville Medley! (Plus the people I worked with were SO fun & SO cool!) Was fun to rock it out & have the people I care about be able to see me do my thing!

Now onto Hot times in the Hamptons AND coming BACK to MN in another 12 days for the State Fair! (Hell Yes, lovelies - I'm coming home for some Sweet Martha cookie Lovin'!)

Shows are fun!

Lovelies, I had my first Ordway Extra last night and it went SO GREAT! I love singing and hearing applause after I finish! (instead of the typical audition - "Thank you, Miss Musical" when I'm done with a song). SO refreshing and good for my soul to do this project!

I'm hoping to do a proper show next - with a storyline and everything - but we have to take this in baby steps, right? :)

On other fronts - I'm going out for lunch at Big Bowl in 1 hour with Greggers. He's a cool dude. We've been friends for almost 2 1/2 years! Crazy! And guess what lovelies - Greggers is getting MARRIED! Hooray!

Speaking of married - I just finished the book "Something Blue" and it's FANTASTIC! Be sure to read "Something Borrowed" before you read "Something Blue" - you'll appreciate it a lot more! I'm totally all about Emily Giffins writing - she's the bomb.
(Does anyone actually say that anymore? You know, "They're the Bomb." I don't think so, but I'm going to try and bring it back. That AND Arseno Hall's arm circle & saying "Woop! Woop! Woop!". Now THAT's a classy move...)

Lovelies! I'm home in Minnesota and vacation is as sweet as ever! (even though technically this is a business trip and I am "working" on a show when I'm here) But considering the fact that I've seen 3 fringe shows, gone to 112 Eatery AND Tum Rap Thai for tasty treats, seen my awesome family a ton has considerably made this "work holiday" seem like all play and no work!

The show at the Ordway is great- it's just a little educational cabaret - but I'm REALLY enjoying it and it's so satisfying for my soul! Plus - let's be honest here - I ROCK at singing that Legally Blonde shit. Seriously.

Wed. night is our first show-lette, then Friday and then again the following Wednesday, so come if you'd like. Although Friday is the donor event at the St. Paul Hotel, so I don't know how hot that would work for admission. You don't get in if you don't give big moo-lah to the Ordway. BUT, if you DO give big money and want to come, be my guest!

BTW - I saw The Last Mistress tonight. Was a pretty good film. French film. But the chick who played the Spanish mistress had HUGE aureoles. HUGE!!!
I'm talking covered at least 1/3 of her boobie.
It was distracting.
And they had so many nude scenes - it could've been skinamax porn. Then again, it is French... Que sera...

Oh, and can I just say me gusta There was a big article about this handsome devil today. (I've been in love with him since While you Were Sleeping... Sigh...)

Maybe I need to put him on my vision board...
