Wiwille has a femme and manly weekend

Friday night a friend took me to see 'Beauty and the Beast' on stage. We had a great dinner then had some drinks before and after the show. We scored fourth row center tickets amazingly enough and it turned out to be a great production.

When telling people I went to see this and that I do love and own the Disney film I've gotten a some interesting responses.

Me: I'm going to see Beauty and the Beast on stage tonight.
Her: That sounds like torture.
Me: Sometimes I think you're more manly than me.
Her: No, you're more manly, just sometimes more faggy.

Him: Dude I require you to turn in your man card.

Me: I'm going to see Beauty and the Beast on stage.
Her: As in a play?
Me: Yes.
Her: If you weren't so obsessed with boobs I would wonder about you.

Me: I'm going to see Beauty and the Beast on stage tonight.
Him: Bwwwaaaahhh hahahahahahahahahah
Me: Dude it's.....
Him: hahahahahahahahaha
Me: Stop laug.....
Him:....hahahahahahahahah....oh wait....hahahahahahaha

So the reaction by me attending this play was mixed at best, but I had a great time. Gaston is quite possibly the best Disney villain ever and is full of hilarity. I forgot to mention that the girl who played Belle was smoking hot.

The snow has hit the Seattle area. While this is not a big deal to most the Puget Sound is full of hills and curves and is known for drivers who are panicky and act about as skilled as toddlers flying jet airplanes. Most of this weekend I was a shut in, but that was okay for this Sunday was a glorious day.

This day was about football.

This Sunday was not just any day involving the NFL, but my fantasy football team, the Nashville Tax Burdens, was playing in the finals for our league. After last week's victory over the Waco Branch Davidians, which was surprising since the owner and my best friend Corey is known for sacrificing small animals in some occult fashion to secure wins, I step up to face Paul's team, the Seattle Porn Surfing Slackers. This match up in the finals is a repeat of 2005 where he trounced me with a strong showing of the now worthless Shaun Alexander.

Today that all changed. Going this entire season on luck and scoring minimal points to secure a win I racked up over 150 points to crown myself champion of the Redmond Optional Football League on this fine Sunday. I watched Sunday night's game, which featured one of my highest point scorers who upon each of his four touchdowns I could hear Paul scream obscenities and pound another beer from miles away. I beat my chest proudly and proclaimed myself God of everything football related on this glorious day. Cheerleaders came marching in my door and started feeding me grapes as I celebrated my conquest.

Okay I made the last part up.

Twas a good weekend.

I've got to dispute your "greatest Disney villian ever" remark.
Gaston as the greatest villian. No no no no no no no no no!

The chick from 101 Dalmations, what's her name? Cruella Deville or something. That chick was evil. She wanted to make a fur coat from dogs. I'm not some anti-fur paint chucking hippy or anything, but dogs??? That's wrong, so very wrong. Gaston is just a drunken lout with big pecs and broad shoulders and... I need a glass of water.

I don't want to talk about football because the cowboys sucked ass. I won't comment on the play, but usually I don't want to go to that kind of thing, but when and if I do, I enjoy it.

Funny quote by Bradshaw...

I like plays too, I don't admit it to people very often.

So you're a fantasy geek eh? Interesting.

I'm impressed by men that attend plays, theatre and the opera. I think it's sexy ;)

And dear lord I agree with WIGSF, Cruella is my fav!

Erik,
I was just about to Revoke your Man Card for Beauty and the Beast, but I read on and you redeemed yourself with the "Bell is Smoking Hot" comment. Even at a unmanly event, you showed your still a Man. Keep up the good work!
