So life has been nuts, but I wanted to let you guys know that along with forcing you all to go see [title of show] this summer (OPENING NEXT MONTH), I am now a big, gooey fan of In the Heights, which awesomely won a bunch of Tony Awards this past weekend, including the Best Musical Tony Award. My friend Beth saw this show last year Off-Broadway and was all like, "yeah, yeah, yeah, I love In the Heights" and I'm all like, "yeah, that's great, I don't know what you're talking about, but I'm sure it's good, but I love [title of show] and I own [title of show], so you can have your In the Heights." So despite the fact that I, of course, still love [tos] and can't wait to see it again, I'm jealous that Beth owns In the Heights, and more specifically, its creator and star, Lin-Manuel Miranda, because I kinda want him to be my Broadway boyfriend now. (Sorry Adam Pascal, you had a long run.) But, just like I claimed Mark Ruffalo (who is my Hollywood boyfriend, not my Broadway boyfriend) and [tos], she claimed Lin-Manuel Miranda and In the Heights, so all I can do is post this appearance from the Tonys and hope that if Beth and Lin break up some day, I'll have a shot.

That made my head spin.

Yes, the concept of "claiming" shows and celebrities is kind of hard to follow. Or was it the show that made your head spin?

I think we needed a dance card to figure out who was claming what show and which pretend boyfriend was which. Can you do a flow chart for us?
