Last night was the big night. Compassion held our "Seasons of Love" dessert auction and theater show. It was like being in high school again! Through the auction, we raised over $4,000 for the Hames family; David Hames was the videographer shooting for Compassion in Haiti who still has not been found.
My coworkers all did a great job, singing songs like "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" and "Matchmaker" and "All I Ask of You." I didn't feel nervous until I got on stage and Mike was singing, at which point my knees began knocking together. Here is a picture of Mike and me mooning at each other as Liesl and Rolph. (Sadly, Mike has already taken off his Nazi tie.)
Even my family got in on the action and bid on this cake for $140!!! We all enjoyed eating it at our house afterwards. Fondant is better looking than it is tasting, but as my mother said, it was about the experience. I had hoped to bid for my friend Brandy's cupcakes, but the auctioneer decided to make that a kids only round. It was fun seeing 8 year olds fight over cupcakes. And now, something unprecedented. I have graciously decided to post the video of Mike and I here. I feel the compulsive urge to apologize for it or insult it or make excuses for it, but I am resisting. Enjoy!
And as a parting treat, check out the Taiwanese version of "We Go Together" from Grease. You have to at least watch starting at 1:05.
