Just spent a wonderful evening at dinner with Susan...  
...we went to Genki (a little "conveyor-belt sushi" place near my work place) :) and had some great Japanese food and some great conversation. We talked about children, our fuzzy babies at home, our men... it was wonderful... BUT I ate WAAAAY too much! :P By the end, I was SO stuffed that I couldn't even bear to look at the sushi rolling by on the conveyor-belt... it was starting to make me feel ill. :P

Part of me really worries that Susan and I will one day drift apart (very similar to my friend Julie - who you all remember me talking about in the "wedding post" below). I think, the wedding and everything that happened last weekend made me think about the current relationships that I have and really made me realize that it takes a lot of work to maintain them... but they are SO worth it! The last thing I'd ever want to do is lose contact with Susan! :(

Mark & I went to see the sneak preview of "Cars" last night and it was SUCH a cute show! I loved it! Really, I didn't expect to enjoy it as much as I did, but it was SO heartwarming and clever that I couldn't help but love it. :) The ending (when the credits roll) is incredibly funny... if you do go and see the show, don't walk out before the end of the credits, if you do you're missing out on a great John Ratzenberger moment. :)

And on an LA theatre note, this made me INCREDIBLY happy :D - especially this part:

    "...the strongest asset of Joel Higgins' West Coast premiere staging is Kevin Earley's inspired scenery-chewing. As the titular character, a guitar-strumming Clint Eastwood clone, Earley matches the soaring splendor of his voice with a hilariously goofy parody of the genre's narcissistic macho archetype. When he caps off the sidesplitting "Tell Me a Lie" by baring a little flesh, he garners the evening's longest sustained belly laugh."

So what's this about Kevin baring a little skin? ;)

I'm glad you liked Cars, now I definatly want to take my daughter to see it.

I can't imagine the conveyor belt restaruant without hearing the old Warner Brothers cartoon music when goofy machines were building things on an assembly line.

It's such a cute movie and I think all the children in the audience loved "Mater" :) I liked it because it was unexpectedly heartwarming. One of the better animated movies to come out in a while, I think. :) I think your daughter will like it. :)

I'm so glad you had a nice time with Susan. :)

I would like to see Cars too.

It was wonderful to see her. :) We don't see each other nearly as much as we should! :(

Cars was so cute!! And I think that even though it's an animated movie, the storyline and clever little jokes were funny enough so that the adults in the audience actually were enjoying it more than the children! :)

I'm glad that you had a great time with Susan. :) How is her dog doing?

... it was starting to make me feel ill.

I do know this feeling. It's bad, isn't it?

made me realize that it takes a lot of work to maintain them... but they are SO worth it!

Yes, I agree completely. And thinking of relationships - I'm very happy that the computer works so that I'm able again to see you again. I really missed you.

Hope you had a nice day. Big *hugs* to you, Sheri.

Thanks so much, Sabine!! Susan's dog is doing MUCH better!! In fact, Toby is back to his fun-loving self. :D

It's so bad to feel so full that nothing looks appetizing anymore. :P

I'm SO happy that you're back, Sabine!! I really missed you a lot!! Big *HUGS* to you!! :D :D

Hope you have a nice weekend!! *HUGS*

I'm glad you guys had a nice time! I know exactly how you feel about the food, though...something can look so wonderfully delicious until you are full - then it just becomes nauseating. :)

That's exactly how I felt! :) It was funny because I LOVE looking at sushi rolling by on those conveyor belts, but last night after eating ALL those plates, I couldn't take looking at them, Susan and I had to take our conversation outside because we were feeling a little ill. :P
