We are the Altar Boyz!

Last night I had the extreme pleasure of attending Altar Boyz for the second time!

Altar Boyz is a comedy/satire of a "Christian" boy band called Altar Boyz. They are on tour cleansing peoples souls with their Jesus message. Singing pop songs and dancing their butts off.

I've never seen a show where the actors are SO dedicated to the characters and had so much talent. Especially here in Vancouver so of course I was surprised to find 5 good singers instead of just one or two which is the usual Vancouver quality.

SORRY but someone had to say it!

I first went with Maya (http://frugalartist.blogspot.com), and had on of the best times ever and left the theatre singing and in brighter spirits which lasted the whole day!

Aug. 15 (with Maya), Aug. 24 (Family + Brittany) about a week apart!

Then I went AGAIN last night with the fam and Brittany (http://ahotwifeandherhotlife.wordpress.com/) and I enjoyed it just as much as the first time! We all had such a good time!

The end of their Summer run is this Saturday the 29th, but there are still seats so if you've got time this week you should consider going!

Starting Over

I can do this, right? Do over!


It's been so long and I left you on a bad note. My dear blog I'm sorry.
It took a while to find myself, and as lame as it is to admit, even though it felt like my life had stopped that there couldn't be anything more important - really? It goes on. With or without me. I've forgiven and forgotten.

And secondly,

A few days ago I told my friend every secret I had about myself. Everything I've been embarrassed or ashamed to tell people. Some of them physical imperfections and others spiritual.
I couldn't stop laughing because I couldn't believe that I could tell someone about the darkness in my life - the things holding me back. Yet as soon as I revealed the shadows I felt better. Relieved even.
I've been working on not being embarrassed. If nothing but embarrassment is going to holding me back then I can do anything, right?

So what is Josh now?

I'm someone full of contradictions. Who wants goodness more than anything. Selfish and rude at times. Knows what his priorities are and continuously forgets. Still wishing for world peace, but fully aware that he will soon live in a place where it's possible and not just a wish. Self conscious yet a little less caring. Simple with a thousand rules.
Trying to do my best which is all that is asked of me.

Hopefully less about me and my drama after this post.
But don't forget who writes this blog and what it's all about.
