Loving to dance and rhyme and quote the scriptures all the time is the new awesome

Bets and I decided it was probably about time that we had a little roommate bonding time since these past few weeks have been a little hectic.

How do you ensure that your girls night out is not spoiled by any boys barging in? It is an easy 2-step process.

1) Eat pizza dipped and double dipped in super super SUPER "i will haunt your breath for the next 2 days" garlic sauce



2) Go see a musical about a religious boy band


We headed over to the the Orpheum to see the famed off-broadyway show Altar Boyz, so popular that they have their own following of self-proclaimed "Altarholics" - a group that betsy and i were desperate to be accepted into.



Sure, it wasn't anything that we hadn't already seen in Sons of Provo, but as Altar Boyz producer and co-creator Ken Davenport so eloquently said, "Any time you put five guys together on a stage and have them sing and dance and wear hot outfits, people are going to come." Seriously. Who can get enough of praising the Lord with funk and rhyme and girding up of loins in pleather?

Also, since we all love a little Divine Forgiveness, we were glad to find a place to lighten our painful and humiliating burdens. I felt better immediately after filling out an Altar Boyz Confession Card.
Betsy's confession was that she was too awesome for her own good sometimes, but I don't think she felt very bad about it.

Look. All I know is that more people would probably go to church if there were good looking dancers like this there busting out The Word. If you need to borrow the soundtrack, I am pretty sure Bets just bought it.

    alice. when we strap cameras to ourselves like Justin.tv, recording our every move for the world to see, THEN we will be living to blog. Until then I am pretty sure we are just exposing ourselves as girlz that like to watch boyz dance and sing.

    Bex, which one is the "bad" alter boy?

     
  • At 1:16 AM, Blogger bex said…

    probably the lead singer, because he didn't wear sleeves the whole time.

    Awesome! I'm glad you enjoyed the show. I saw Altar Boyz for the third time at Orpheum on the preview night. I talked two of my friends (who had never seen it before) into going. I'm so glad they enjoyed it because they spent $40. Haha!

    Um, I need to clarify that the bad boy is not Matthew the lead singer, it's Luke. He's the bad boy. He had spikey hair and a bandana on his head. This is not up for discussion.
