I didn't think it could happen...  
I've actually OD'ed on "West Wing" ;) Between my season 3 dvd marathons last week, yesterday's season 4 marathon on Bravo, and finding and reading A LOT of Josh and Donna fan fic, I've officially OD'ed on the show - who knew it was possible? ;) I think I'll try to steer clear of "West Wing" for a while - at least until after I get back from my trip. ;)

Got some good news in email today, apparently my friend gigglets and her husband Kevin are coming to Hawaii to visit in February! I'm SO excited because since I've known her (which has been about five years) she's always talked about coming here for a visit. How nice that it'll finally be happening! :D It's usually me going out to the East Coast to visit her, so this should be a wonderful change! :)

In other lovely friend news, I'm so happy that I'll be seeing lindasings during this coming LA trip! :D I'd been trying to convince her to see "Guys & Dolls" with me, but the drive was much too far for her. Today I got an email saying that she was interested in seeing "Ghost & Mrs. Muir" with me on the 14th! I'm so excited! This is going to be a GREAT trip! :D

Also, on a theatre note, I found out that "The Wild Party" (in which Misty starred and Nick directed and which I sadly missed the first time) was so popular that they've booked an encore performance! Of course, that's GREAT news for all the wonderful people involved with the show! The only sad part to all of this is that it's on July 19th... and I leave LA on the 18th! :( Ahhhh! Could my timing get any worse? Dammit. :P

Speaking of bad timing, it's official - I can't go with Mark & his family to Japan in October. :( I just found out today that our OSJ audit has been scheduled for the week of the family trip and since it's my job to make sure the audit runs smoothly, I have to be there. :P I'm sure Mark will have a great time though - especially since he's never been to Japan before. :D I told him to take a lot of pictures for me. :)

I'd better run and grab a much needed shower (it feels like a sauna in here!) :P Hope you all have a nice evening! :D

Ditto.

Actually I'd thought I wouldn't be able to make it (with our broker dealer conversion and all happening in September) but when I heard the news of the audit, it cemented it for me. :( It's okay though because Mark promised to have fun for the both of us.

I've OD'd on Korean soap operas (yes, I'm one of them who watch it nonstop), so I totally understand. It's amazing though at how high the tolerance level is, isn't it?

You are too sweet to wish Mark well for his trip. I would be too jealous and would try to make the entire family go the week before or after so I could go too. But I'm way more selfish than you are! xp
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on July 7th, 2005 07:28 am (UTC)
Oh, my in-laws LOVE Korean soaps - the funniest thing is that I think it's my father in law that's hooked on it, but he'll never admit it (and will probably just say he watches it because of my mother in law) ;)

I do hope that Mark has a good time on the trip. I'll miss him while he's gone, but this might be the only chance he will have to go to Japan in a while (my in-laws are paying for him). I'm sure he'll have lots of fun. :)

I'm sorry to hear about the bad timings. :( If it's not too much work - perhaps, something still can be changed?

But I'm glad that you also have wonderful things to look forward to. :)

Hope you have a nice day, Sheri. :) *crossing fingers for better weather* Big *hugs* to you

Unfortunately my in-laws have been planning this trip for about a year now and won't change it on my account - which I'd never ask them to do anyway. :) I'd told them it was unlikely that I'd be able to go because of the conversion but since I got the news about the audit, I think it's pretty final that I won't be able to go. :P

And your good thoughts must've worked because it was a little cooler today. :) *HUGS* to you, Sabine! :D

LOL Sheri ODing on West Wing... that's totally my mom and dad. Winners!
Sheri: Stephanie & Kate Monstershutterbug93 on July 7th, 2005 07:31 am (UTC)
Haha! I love your parents - my kind of people! :D

That's a bummer that you can't go to Japan. :(
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on July 7th, 2005 07:33 am (UTC)
It's okay though because Mark has promised me a full report. :) I'm also not going to be able to join him and his family on their Vegas trip in August (due to training for the conversion - my darn job!) :P

How's Brock doing Laura? I've been thinking and worrying about him a lot!
Carriecarrieh on July 6th, 2005 09:35 pm (UTC)
So sorry to hear that you can't go on the trip to Japan. What a disappointment that must be. Hope Mark still has a good time though - and yes, he'll have to take lots of photos that will just have to make their way onto LJ.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on July 7th, 2005 07:35 am (UTC)
Yes, he promised me tons of photos and many re-caps - which I'm really looking forward to! :D I'm sure he'll have a blast and how nice that he'll be able to spend some quality time with his family. :D

Oh no, so sorry that you can't go to Japan! Where Mark and his family will go? October is a perfect month to visit too. You can always tag along with us when we go ;-)

So where this "The Wild Party" will be playing and how long? I know there is one scheduled for August/Sept in LA, but I wasn't aware of July production.
Sheri: Side Showshutterbug93 on July 7th, 2005 07:39 am (UTC)
Mark & his family are actually going from Oct 8-18. :) They're going with a tour and I'm not sure what areas they'll hit. I haven't been to Japan since I was 16 so it would've been nice it I could make it, but alas... my demanding job... :P

"The Wild Party" is playing one night only (July 19th) at The Carpenters' Peforming Arts Center at Cal State Long Beach. What really kills me is that I'll be there (at the Carpenters' Center) all weekend to see Kevin in "Guys & Dolls" - if I had extended my trip just one more day - I would've been able to see it. :P Ahhhh! :(

My Mom got "Hitch" through Netflix last night and I told her to look for Julie Ann. :) We're going to watch it tonight.
Sheri: Julie Ann - Hitchshutterbug93 on July 10th, 2005 10:25 am (UTC)
YAY!!!! How did you guys like "Hitch?"
irisheyes77 on July 9th, 2005 03:42 pm (UTC)
That's really too bad that you won't be able to go to Japan with Mark and his family. :(
Sheri: Familyshutterbug93 on July 10th, 2005 10:26 am (UTC)
It's a shame that I won't be going with them, but I think it'll be a great chance for them all to spend time together as a family... Plus Mark's promised me that he'll take tons of photos. :)
