Hit Me With Your Best Shot!

Posted: February 21, 2009 in Music


So Hillary was Seussed out after night two of the musical. But it was another great performance. And she is finally getting a chance to sleep in this morning.

Our friends, Nathan and Lauren, came last night and had a really good time. We had an especially good time talking to them in the parking lot after the show, in large part swapping stories of star sightings. We’re from small town Arkansas/Mississippi, and they are from small town Tennessee, so we share a common bond in this strange land called Malibu.

Our discussion was prompted because Jody spotted Pat Benatar at the musical last night. Jody is a Pat Benatar fan from way back (claims she got her through some bad relationships in the ’80s) and was pretty pumped about it. Jody noticed that she went backstage during intermission and then was talking to the director after the performance. Hillary was listening to Jody talk about her with Nathan and Lauren in the parking lot and asked who they were talking about. Jody described her, and Hillary said, “Oh, I know her.”

Turns out Pat Benatar is the costume alterations lady for the middle school musical! (She goes by her husband’s name, or we would have noticed it in the program!)

So Jody & I got on YouTube and Wikipedia as soon as we got home and had a little ’80s party. She’s known as the Queen of Rock. She’s a member of the Rock ‘n Roll Hall of Fame and was voted the best female rock vocalist of all time by Billboard magazine. Hers was the second video ever on MTV (right after “Video Killed the Radio Star”). And she’s our little girl’s costume alterations lady.

Turn up the volume and enjoy, Pat (Benatar) Giraldo.
