On being short & theatre mumblings & grumblings...  
Tomorrow after work Susan and I are going down to get our dresses altered for the wedding. :)

I keep thinking that the seamstresses in Hawaii must make an awful lot of money since it's pretty much a guarantee that they'd have to hem whatever dress / outfit anyone here buys. Yes, we're all that short here! Exhibit A - Jasmine on "American Idol" - she's not unusually short, most local girls fall into the "almost 5 foot" or "just over 5 foot" category out here. :) It's no wonder roopunzel left the islands at such a young age, she was too tall for us! ;)

Personally, I like being short - the only times I have a problem with it is when a really tall, annoying person sits in front of me at the theatre and I end up missing most of what's happening onstage because their big head is in the way. :( GRRR! Or when I'm trying to reach that last loaf of bread in the supermarket that's just out of my reach. :P Gah!

Speaking of theatre:

AHHHHHHH!! Just one more week! If Assassins just extended one week more I'd be able to see it! If there were such a thing as theatre gods, I'd be praying to them - it's just so close that it's painful. :P Just my luck that I'd arrive in NYC just a few days after it closes. :( :(

Shows I'm planning on seeing in July:
  • Avenue Q - again, but I think (or at least hope) my Mom will like it. :)
  • Caroline, or Change - heard mixed reviews, but I thought I'd try it
  • Wicked - again, I think my Mom would like it.
  • Fiddler on the Roof - want to see it since I've been staring at its marquee for months outside of Millie. ;)
  • Wonderful Town - which hopefully will still be open then. :)
  • Millie - big surprise, huh? ;) (BTW, I'm still saying my nightly "Please don't close prayers" for it)

Thanks for indulging me and putting up with all my theatre mumblings lately. It's been a while since I've seen a show. NYC with Mark was two and a half months ago and I'm going stir crazy already. :P

Hope you all have a wonderful evening. :)

Yep! I'll admit it, I'm short too! I'm just 5' YAY for me...NOT! I wanna be tall!

Jasmine was safe tonight, which I'm glad for. I'd just like her to make the Top 5, that's all I could ask for.

Yay for the 5 foot bunch! :D I don't mind being short at all, I think it's okay to be categorized as a "short Japanese girl" out here. ;)

Yay for Jasmine making the top 5. :) I don't know how long she'll stay, though - but like you, I'm just happy she made it to the top 5. BTW, I'm loving her new hair! :)

*L* Yep! We live longer. ;-)

I'm glad she got in the top 5! I wonder if she can hear up there are stage though?

he he he I know how you feel. & to think that I am the tall one among my cousins!! I felt so much at home in Hawaii...felt normal, and now here in Malaysia! but it's great being short. It has its advantages.

My head has begun to turn everytime I see a tall caucasian walk down the street. However much I swore I wouldn't do it!

I have in the past asked the tall dudes in from of me to scoot down if they don't mind. But I guess being young and silly, we got away with that kind of behavior.

Haha! I don't mind tall people too much when they sit in front of me in the theatre - what really annoys me are the "swayers" - who have to move from side to side (to block more of my view) for the entire show. Pick a place to watch the show and stick with it, I say! ;)

And you're not short! At least not out here you're not! :)

funny you say that...last night in class I was stuck behind another classmate. He was part of the group presenting... his back was to me the whole time, as he was looking at the powerpoint (and since it was a debate, he was facing the opposing team). He kept swaying back and forth while presenting, that I missed all his visuals and what he was saying as I was busy trying to see what he was putting up! tall dude...If he was five inches shorter would have been ok!

Your boys are very lucky to have been given such tall genes. :)

LOL!! I am SO short-waisted that when I sit I am the height of one of my relatives in Japan. :D But it's weird cuz of course, when I stand I'm 5'8" with a 35" inseam. The minute I sit tho'...*poof* My chin barely reaches the tabletop. :D
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on April 29th, 2004 09:54 am (UTC)
Haha! That's too funny! Most Japanese people are short-legged - However, I'm short-legged and short-waisted. ;) I dated a guy once who had a really short torso (but long legs) and he'd disappear when we sat next to each other. ;)

You dated my brother?!?!!

Now I know why my ex boyfriend (who was from Hawaii) kept calling me an Amazon at 5'8" (and yes, I was two inches taller than he was). ;)
Sheri: Familyshutterbug93 on April 29th, 2004 09:55 am (UTC)
You'd be VERY tall out here - in fact, you'd think we were all midgets out here! ;)
ajayne on April 29th, 2004 07:06 am (UTC)
Being right around 5' tall, I would fit in just fine in Hawaii. =)
Sheri: Familyshutterbug93 on April 29th, 2004 09:56 am (UTC)
Yay! Another one for the 5 foot bunch! :) You'd fit in perfectly here! :)
ajayne on April 29th, 2004 04:23 pm (UTC)
Good to know... I am on my way! ;)
Carecareleswhisper on April 29th, 2004 09:27 am (UTC)
I'm 5'2"...would that make me a "tall" person there? :P
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on April 29th, 2004 09:57 am (UTC)
VERY tall... :) Heehee! Actually, most of my friends are your height - and I'm your height too (with the right shoes, of course!) ;)
