Father's Day, Daytime Emmy Preparations, etc...  
Happy Father's Day to all the Dads on my LJ! Those of you who know me will know that I don't usually do Father's Day... at least not very well.... :P Not too sure if we will be doing anything for my Father-in-law today and have been thinking about visiting my Dad at Punchbowl... because it's been so long since I've been there to see him... :P I guess Mark & I will play it by ear...

On a less depressing note, things are really coming together for my upcoming LA trip. :) I'm very excited (possibly even more so than going to the actual Daytime Emmys) about meeting some of the posters who I've only gotten the chance to speak with on message boards. We have a dinner planned after the actual award ceremony and I think I'm looking forward to that more than the awards itself. :)

Oddly, though I consider myself shy (yeah, right!) ;) I'm not apprehensive about meeting online people at all, in fact, some of the nicest people I've actually met were on soap opera message boards, believe it or not. A good example is Pat, who I met on Chad Brannon's message board in 2001 - who, not only became a favorite travel buddy of mine, but who I still meet up with and see from time to time. :)

And speaking of the Emmys, I think I have a dress... shoes, and accessories. I'm soooo NOT a "dress up" person so events like these are pretty unnerving for me. :{ Don't have a clue as to how to do make up so a co-worker/friend is actually going shopping with me during our lunch next week so she can pick out colors for me at Sephora and then teach me how to do my own make up (how pathetic am I? - Again... rhetorical, don't answer that) ;)

And to finally cap off my entry, I just found out that Stewart (from "Thrill Me") is in one of the 6 new plays by new playwrights presented by moving arts.org so I've changed my theatre schedule a bit to accommodate it. He's SO incredibly talented that it will be well worth it to see him in this.

I'm off to catch up on all of your entries! Hope you're all having a nice weekend. HUGS!!

I'm so excited that you are going to the Daytime Emmy's. I will watch & look for you in the crowd! I hope you post a full report!

Thanks so much!! I'm pretty excited, but really, really nervous at the same time! I'm not one for crowds so this will be interesting. :) I will most definitely report on my experiences. :D

Even though it's not your favorite day of the year, I hope it's a good one.

And I understand completely about not being a "dress up" person! The only makeup I wear is mascara and a touch of lip gloss - when I think of it - and I can't imagine trying to do more.

Your trip should be fabulous!

Thank you!! HUGS!

I'm so bad about dressing up that my male co-worker friend said it would be funny to see me in make-up... since I don't wear any! It'll certainly be different... ;P

And I'm really looking forward to the trip, even if I'm a little apprehensive about the Emmys...

Hugs you tight. I'm hoping that your LA trip will be wonderful. And I'm looking forward to hear about it and, hopefully, to see some pictures. :)
