"Open Window" and a wonderful evening with lindasings  
First of all, I wanted to thank you all for participating in my silly poll yesterday. :) The reason I did it was because I was SO surprised at the price of the breakfast too! I've eaten at SO many airports that when I looked at it, I was totally expecting to pay more than $5 for it and wanted to know what you all thought... Only one person got the correct answer (Yay queenstacey_25!) :) - I actually only paid $3.50 for it. When has ANYTHING to eat at the airport been less than $5? Doesn't surprise me at all, however, that the bottled water that I bought with it was $2.50. :P Thanks so much for everyone who indulged me and participated in the poll - I was really curious at hearing what you all thought. :)

Last night was WONDERFUL! :) The show itself ("Open Window") was a strong and powerful show. It tried to tie in the primal need for one to communicate with the need in all humans to connect on some level. The show was uniquely staged... with the deaf actors signing their lines and being interpreted by their hearing counterparts who stood off to the side (or above the sets in some cases.) It was a unique experience to see the hearing translators off to the side (instead of the other way around, which we're all more used to) and I really liked the change. The nicest part was at the end of the show, there was almost no applause that could be HEARD in the audience, everyone in the audience was giving the "sign" for applause to all the major leads. :)

The nicest part of the evening, however, was getting to spend time with lindasings! She and I met before the show for a wonderful dinner at Crocodile Cafe (the food there was excellent!!) :) There we caught up on everything and spoke about shows that we've seen (and have yet to see), theatre friends we have in common, and just about everything theatre related. I just had the best time! :) I already can't wait to see her in January. :)

Today is my "run around fininshing up my final errands" day. I need to stop at the post office to send myself a box of things that won't fit into my suitcase (darn all my shopping!) ;) and finish buying "omiyage" (or souvenirs) for my work people. I also need to pick up an anniversary gift for Mark (since our anniversary is the night I arrive home.) :D Hopefully I'll be able to get everything done... Then I'm going to see Kristi in "Bark!" at the Coast Playhouse and then tonight I'm seeing Julie Dixon Jackson in "The Wild Party" at The Blank Theatre - it should be a GREAT day of theatre. :)

I can't believe I'm finally going home when the weekend is over! It feels like I've been gone for so long. :( I really miss Mark & Sydney! :( I LOVE traveling, but the only thing I don't like is being away from the hubby and fuzzy dog! :(

Hope you all have a nice Saturday! I'm off the start my errands! :) *HUGS*

Then I'm going to see Kristi in "Bark!" at the Coast Playhouse...

As if I have to ask... let me know what you think of this. I keep seeing it on Goldstar, and I'm wondering if it is good.

I definitely will! I just got back (and am heading out the door again to see "The Wild Party"...) I promise to write up my short impressions on the show when I get back. :)

Cute show! And not to be biased or anything, but Kristi's the best part of the show! :)

I'm just very happy that you have such a nice time! :)

I still took a look at the photo of the dress and it looks beautiful. And I loved the pictures of you. You seem to be a bit tired but you look great, all the same.

The best thing to come home is to see again the loved ones, isn't it? Wish you success with your errands. :)

Big *hugs* to you, Sheri

Thanks for your comment Sabine, you're far too kind (I looked like death warmed over!) ;) But Nick looked wonderful as always so I had to post the picture. :)

I can't wait to go home to see Mark & Sydney!! I miss them so much! :(

Big *HUGS* to you, Sabine!! :)

Glad to hear that you enjoyed Open Window more than I did ;p How was the attendance? When I saw it, it was a weekday and it was less than 60% I think.

I saw The Wild Party Thursday night and it was fantastic! I thanked for my fortune to be able to see the show in such an intimate theatre!

I don't know that I did... When I wrote that it was a wonderful night - it had a lot to do with seeing lindasings. I did enjoy the show, but maybe not as much as it appeared from this review. Attendance was okay. Maybe 60%.

Oh you saw "The Wild Party" on THURSDAY night! Ooops! I thought it was tonight from reading your post. I was there tonight and I loved it.

Wow that is too cool that the show was in sign language. :)

I'm glad you had a nice time catching up with your friend.

It was very intriguing! We're so used to thinking of the signers as the "interpretors", but in this show the interpretors were the ones speaking the lines! :)

It was SO nice to see Linda! I can't wait to see her again! :)
