Scrapbooking :), my work family, and going in to the office on a Saturday. :)  
Yesterday, I spent most of my work day going around the office collecting goodbye messages and taking photos of everyone to put in a scrapbook for our three office-mates who are leaving. I was surprised that even my BIG boss took some time out of his busy schedule to pose for a photo and contribute a message. I haven't scrapbooked in a LONG time and it'll be great to be doing something creative again. :)

Here's a photo of my wonderful office family (minus my BIG boss)

My apologies for the poor quality of the photo - it's a REAL photo and my scanner really stinks! :P Ana and Sharon (the two girls on both ends) are leaving :( and so is Brian (the guy in the blue polo). :( They're a great group and I'm going to miss the three of them a lot! :(

Speaking of work, I have to go in this morning to complete some last minute things before I start my week vacation. I've never gone in on a Saturday (though the bank is always open in the morning). It'll be really nice to be able to clean off my desk and get things done without the hassle of having to answer the phones (which are constantly ringing on the weekday). :P

Tonight Mark & I have tickets to see "Jesus Christ Superstar" at Diamond Head Theatre. I'd heard a lot of great things about this local production and I was curious to see how they would stage it (even though I'm not a HUGE fan of the show itself). It'll also be nice to support local theatre since I always complain about us having no theatre here. Mark & I were pretty impressed by their production of "Follies" last year so we're pretty excited to see this.

And finally, my "Assassins" CD came in the mail yesterday!!! Woo hoo! :D It's always been one of my favorite shows, but with a stellar cast like this (and the unforgettable LA Reprise! cast!) the show is that much more captivating. I LOVE the CD! :)

I'm off to make some breakfast and get ready for work. Hope you all have a nice Saturday! :)

A week vacation! ALRIGHT!

Woo hoo! I think that I'm going to really enjoy not being in the office next week. :)

I should hope so. Live it up! :)

That's a great photo of you all - nobody has done a group photo of our staff since before I started working there, it's a logistical nightmare getting everyone together (scrap that, you'd never get everyone together!).

Hope you have a good week off work.

It was so hard to get everyone together (people were on the phone, etc. all morning and we literally took an hour to round up everyone for the photo) :P And just as we got into our pose, all the lines on the phone started ringing and everyone lunged for the open phones. :P It was REALLY stressful just taking this photo. ;)

Great photo. :) Have a good time watching the play w/Mark tonight. :) Don't work too hard. :)

Aww thanks, Carrie! And we did have a nice time tonight - although I've realized why the show is not a favorite of mine. :P It was nice to see it anyway. :)

that is a nice photo of all of you! The guy on the extreme left, and the guy in the polo shirt look very familiar! Or maybe it's just me still half asleep! :P
Sheri: Sherishutterbug93 on August 1st, 2004 02:06 am (UTC)
Thanks Smitha! :) And the guy on the left in the dark polo is Derek - it would be neat if you knew him. :)

Thank you for sharing the photo. You simply look great. :)

I'm sorry that your three office-mates are leaving and I hope that, if there are coming new persons, they will be very nice people.

Wish you and Mark a nice time watching "Jesus Christ Superstar". :) *Hugs*

Thanks, Sabine! :) And I'm really sad to see my three co-workers leave. :( We're getting one of the replacements on Monday (but I'll be on vacation) I heard she's very nice, though. :)

Hope you're having a nice weekend! :) *HUGS*

Great pic! I'm not really a fan of "Jesus Christ Superstar" either, but I really enjoy most of the other Andrew Lloyd Webber/Tim Rice shows. I was thinking of you today when my family went to the MUNY in St. Louis to see "The Music Man." They give you an opportunity to vote on what shows you'd like to see next summer -- I definitely put down "1776"!

Yay for 1776! :) Glad you had such a wonderful time at "Music Man." Unfortunately, I wish I could say the same about "Jesus Christ Superstar"... some of the performances were wonderful, but... it's still not one of my favorite shows.

I always think "Jesus Christ Superstar" is "too seventies" if that makes sense, aside from odd religious quirks to it that sometimes ring wrong.

I hope you and Mark had a nice time at the play tonight. :)
Sheri: Sherishutterbug93 on August 1st, 2004 02:11 am (UTC)
Thanks Laura! :) We had a nice time and some of the performances were very memorable, but the show itself is still not one of my favorites. :(
