The Bad Idea Bears

Bad Idea Bears

Bad Idea Bears
For Fantasy Fest, Bryan and I dressed one night as the Bad Idea Bears. We got our faces painted too (btw, I think we look CREEPY...and we were supposed to look cute), and we carried around our homemade version of the Bears (converted from Care Bears). As the night progressed, I was truly surprised at how most people didn't know who the Bad Idea Bears are.

The Bad Idea Bears are puppets in the Broadway musical, Avenue Q, which is a comical, musical perversion of Sesame Street. Avenue Q is probably my favorite musical of all time, and the Bad Idea Bears, in my opinion, stole the show! The Bad Idea Bears are personally known by all of us. For example, you know you shouldn't have any more to drink, but suddenly, another round of Long Island Ice Tea sounds like a great idea! After all, it's only ice tea! Here is one of the lead characters, Princeton, face to face with the Bad Idea Bears. Let's see how he fares:

While you're here, check out these other Avenue Q videos. In particular, check out, It Sucks to Be Me, Everyone's a Little Bit Racist, and The Internet is for Porn.

Tell me what you think! I think you'll love these vignettes as much as me!

Savannah and Key West

I'm exhausted! Last week, I went to Savannah for a few days to visit my brothers, Chris and Ricky. After that, I headed down to Key Largo and Key West for some scuba diving and Fantasy Fest. Thanks to my brothers and the gang at Key West, I had a fantastic time.

Girls' Trip to Austin City Limits

Austin City Limits Music Festival

Kristie, Res, Sherri and I ventured to Austin, Texas to attend the Austin City Limits Music Festival. We had a fantastic time! Besides the headliners (Foofighters, Beck, the Raconteurs and others) in a jam packed line-up, I really enjoyed Band of Horses, Vampire Weekend, Old 97s, Electric Touch and the South Austin Jug Band. These are on my list to check out further. The best part, though, was getting to experience the festival and the city of Austin with my awesome gal pals.
