Getting sick, especially in New York...  
...REALLY sucks! :P Not sure when I got it, but yesterday afternoon as I was sitting in Say Cheese eating my glorious 'sroom sandwich (which is a grilled mozzarella sandwich with sauteed mushrooms - SOOO yummy!) I was beginning to feel a little flushed and by the time I was halfway through the first act of the matinee of "Mary Poppins" I had a full-blown fever complete with body aches and all... :P

Sucks because a) it totally put a damper on my vacation with my Mom and b) bitter cold weather with wind chills into the single digits are expected here today... :P After the matinee of "Mary Poppins" Mom & I headed back to the hotel for some downtime, I took an advil and felt MUCH better by the time we arrived at "Little Mermaid" that night.

I enjoyed "Mary Poppins", though I'm sure that my not feeling well hampered my enjoyment of the show somewhat. Loved Gavin Lee's performance as Bert and bigrivermusical will be happy to hear that I finally saw Dan Jenkins live onstage. :) The second act was much better than the first and at times incredibly touching - I teared up with the whole kite thing...

That being said, the matinee audience yesterday was outrageous! It mostly consisted of little girls and their mothers who seemed to have all just come from the "American Girl" store. Some were so well-behaved and so cute, but others were standing up, talking, eating crunchy foods, kicking the backs of our seats through the entire show, etc. If I wasn't so sick, it might've bothered me, but I must've been too sick to care.

"Little Mermaid" had quite a similar audience, though there seemed to be more theatre people there. I liked the show, if for nothing else, the wonderful performances. I'd been looking forward to seeing Norm Lewis since I've admired his voice (and, um... him) for quite a long time now and have never had the opportunity to see him live on stage. So even if it was a small part, I was excited. Sadly, he only sang two songs, and really didn't get to show off his range too much...

He did sing enough to impress my Mom, though. I was also completely impressed by Sherie Rene Scott (who Mark has a thing for after seeing DRS, so it's a shame he wasn't there...) Boy can that woman belt! Although I kept watching the show and thinking that Bets would make THE PERFECT Ursula with her comedic timing and her range... And the little boy (Brian D'Addario) who played Flounder was SUCH a great singer - we just completely loved him!! :)

True, the show itself wasn't the greatest thing we saw, but the talented cast made the show incredible to see! :)

Today we're doing some last minute omiyage shopping and seeing two last shows. It should be VERY cold, but thankfully we don't have to walk too far.

Airborne, vitamin C, and Umcka are my best friends lately!

I'm sorry to hear that you weren't feeling well :( Are you okay now? I hope so. At least you are with your Mom, which makes a little better when you are sick, doesn't it?

I'm thrilled to hear you saw MP and Dan! But too bad about the audience behavior. I can't believe Disney lets people eat/drink in the theatre either.

Well take lots of rest and get well soon. Enjoy your last day in NYC!

I'm actually still sick! :P The 14 degree weather on the last day didn't help matters at all... Thankfully, even though I stayed home from work today, I felt a little better.

And take pictures!! Oh, my gosh, there were SO many flashes going off... :P

Thanks so much, Sue! The last day in NYC was just horrible with the freezing cold weather and my cold... Thankfully I'm home now, though I did have to stay home from work today... :P

I'm so sorry to hear that you are sick. :( Hope you are feeling better now!

I still would like to thank you for sharing the photos from your other post. I just looked at them - Monika is ill too (stomach trouble) and I spent the Saturday with her - and I really loved them. You all look great and as if you had a nice time. :)

Big hugs to you, Sheri!

Getting sick on Vacation is never good, but I am glad you were feeling better later in the day.

Sounds like you're having a wonderful time, even if the audiences are a bit immature. :/ That would bother me. It's not like a movie where you eat popcorn. *sigh*
Sheri: Sherishutterbug93 on January 23rd, 2008 02:40 am (UTC)
Thanks so much for your comment, Andrea! I feel a little better today, but not enough to go back to work (this flu thing is really kicking my BUTT) :P

I totally agree! I was just too sick that day to care - or to care that all these flashes were going off around me... :P Bleh! :P

I am so sorry you are sick. There is nothing worse than being sick away from home.

I wanted to see Little Mermaid so bad. It's one of my favorite Disney Movies, and I would love to see it come to life. I saw Beauty and the Beast in High School. It was amazing.

Thanks so much for your comment, Stacey!

"Little Mermaid" was cute and the cast was AMAZINGLY talented! Sherie Rene Scott, Norm Lewis, etc... they were the best parts of the show! :D

I loooove Sherie Renee Scott. Aida is one of my very most favorites.

Feel better !!

She was INCREDIBLE as Ursula!! That woman can belt like no one's business! She was one of the best parts of the show for me. :D

I'm sorry you got sick on your trip. What a huge bummer. It sounds like the trip was great otherwise though. :) I hope you feel better soon. *HUGS*

Thanks so much for your comment, Carrie! Thankfully, I'm home now and I feel a little better than I did in NY... Not good enough to go back to work, though... Thanks so much! Big HUGS to you!

Thank you so much, Laura!! I think the last day in NY in the 14 degree weather did me in... :P Thankfully I'm back home now and it's much warmer here. :)

I hope you are feeling better by now - and that your trip home isn't (wasn't?) a problem! Looking forward to hearing about the rest of your time in NYC.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 23rd, 2008 02:46 am (UTC)
Thanks so much for your comment! Glad to see you made it home safely and that you had a wonderful time after we left you on Friday night. :)

Oh, yay, you saw Brian go on! I miss that boy - was sorry he couldn't close out LM, but it's so cool he got a new job already and gets to work with Norm again. (he also thinks I'm insane because he saw me too much at the LM stage door, but he and Zach named the national guard corpses after the Beatles, so he's one to talk.)

and I'm so glad you liked Mary Poppins.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 23rd, 2008 02:47 am (UTC)
Oh my gosh, Brian is the cutest thing! And his voice is just amazing! We loved him! :)

And Mary Poppins was great, I wish I wasn't feeling so awful when I went to see it, though. :P
