[Lynn] What was your favorite birthday
00:01
at any time in your life?
00:03
Hmmm.
00:10
I was eleven-years-old, deep in the throws of my love
00:15
for musical theater, and I loved
00:17
Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at that point,
00:21
and my mom was so sweet, and she made me my own
00:25
technicolor dreamcoat, and I had a themed birthday party,
00:30
where it was you had to dress up
00:31
as your favorite musical character,
00:32
which none of my friends knew who to dress up as,
00:35
because I was the only one that liked musicals,
00:39
and I was Joseph, and we watched the movie,
00:42
and we watched some other Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals,
00:46
'cause I secretly loved Cats.

[Lynn] Did she make a Technicolor Dream
00:53
Cake?

A Technicolor Dreamcake?

[Lynn] A Technicolor Dreamcoat cake.

No, that's a good idea though.

01:02
Did you keep it?
01:03
I do, I still have it.
01:04
[Lynn] You do?!
01:05
Yeah, it's in the basement or something,
01:06
and it's locked away in some tub in storage.
