Les Mis

Last night my dad and I watched the last half or so of Les Miserables. It was beautiful. I have no idea which 'version' it was, but I loved it. Most of the time I was not quite sure what was going on, but the music and lyrics were wonderful. I proceeded to buy two of the songs on iTunes: Bring Him Home, and Empty Chairs at Empty Tables (the links are to the versions I found on YouTube, the same version I watched. These are not the iTunes versions) . I can't wait for an opportunity to see the whole thing, even to see it live. And to read it, someday.

indeed a beautiful book.

but also verrrrrry long.

I recommend listening to it, as there are countless french phrases, names and places.

I think our school is going to a play of it this Spring. I wasn't going to go because I had no idea what it was. But maybe if you are up around that time...

Ah, listening to it sounds like a good idea... I'll have to find it. Trying to read things in other languages sometimes can be a hassle :)

o! well, I may try to rig it so that I WILL be there during the musical... that would be so fun! :)
