Two more days until NYC - woo hoo! :)  
How pathetic is it that I'm sitting here freezing when the weather outside is only 65 degrees? :P It's really true what they say about Hawaii people not being able to take the cold, we throw on jackets when the temperature goes below 70 here. :P I'm only partially joking of course, I really do love the cold weather and I'm really looking forward to the 35 degree weather in NYC. :)

Speaking of NY, I seem to be (for once) packed on time for my trip. :) I usually procrastinate and end up rushing to pack the night before I leave. :P What prompted me to plan ahead this time is beyond me. :P And I'm oddly excited about this trip - not in the usual "I get to see great theatre again" excitement, but I think part of the reason I'm so excited this time is that my Mom really hasn't been to NYC in a while (five years) and I want to show her how much it's changed since then. :)

My Mom is even getting excited about the trip - though she'd never admit it to me. I think the thing she's the most excited about is the restaurants that we're going to in the area and not so much the shows. She loves theatre a lot, but hasn't really been exposed to a lot of really big productions. Hopefully she'll enjoy the shows I've picked out. :) I, on the other hand, love them all, from big Broadway houses to tiny 99 seaters in LA - doesn't matter at all to me.

Speaking of LA, I haven't been able to decide on my final show there next month. I'll probably try to catch "The Accomplice" at the Colony Theatre that weekend, but I have to decide between "Ragtime" at Musical Theatre West or "Miss Saigon" at Fullerton Civic Light Opera. I'm hoping I can wait another couple of weeks when the cast lists will hopefully be out, but if no one I know is in either of them, I'm back to square one. :P

And finally, I read this today in Playbill.Com. :( Please don't get me wrong, I like Harry Connick, Jr - I was just hoping they'd nab someone more like Kevin for this role (if not Kevin himself). Ever since I heard they were reviving "Pajama Game" - I thought Kevin would be perfect for the part since he has the most John Raitt-like voice I know. :)

I'm off to find the fuzzy dog and crawl into bed. As a side note, Mark still has not extracted himself from his Xbox and has been sitting in front of the TV all weekend obsessing over Knights of the Old Republic. :P I'm hoping he finds time to get some sleep tonight. :P Hope you all have a nice evening.

I've just been so lucky the past couple of years that I've been able to travel - especially since living on this small island all the time makes traveling away that much more of a necessity. ;)

Well it's not that cold here. You figure where I am it should be "freezing." It was about 60 or so the other day, but it's not cold right now.

Wow...he's still play huh. o_O
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 11th, 2005 05:05 am (UTC)
I'd think it would be freezing where you are! :O This morning was about 60 degrees out here - I had a hard time waking up, it was so cold. ;)
Kananigirlkananigirl on January 11th, 2005 09:01 am (UTC)
I guess I'm used to, to the weather here. It's cold, but I don't mind it, unless it's like 50 or so. It usually gets that cold in Jan/Feb. We'll see how it goes.

Btw, have a safe, fun filled trip!

As you were describing how long it's been since your mom's been in NYC - I remembered I don't think I made it up to NYC at all this year! I hope you have a fabulous time!

I'm really disappointed at the lack of winter we've been having in DC...I keep complaining I live in a temperate zone and so far, I haven't had the full 4 seasons since Winter seemed to have fizzled. I want snow!! But I have to tell you, when the house is 65 - it feels pretty cold.

I saw Miss Saigon right before it closed up on Broadway. I'm not a theater expert but I definitely liked it! :)
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 11th, 2005 05:14 am (UTC)
I love NY a lot, the last time my Mom was there was before they fully cleaned up Times Square and she has a much different impression of it. I'm very excited to show her how family oriented it's become. :)

Wow - no snow up there yet? I have a friend in DC who laughs at me for always being so cold everywhere we go - last year we went to NY together and I was freezing in the single digit temperatures they had that week. But it seemed pretty common to her. It must get really cold up there, normally.

And I'm definitely leaning toward Miss Saigon. I've seen it on tour, but it was so long ago that I'd love to see it again. :)

I thought that I could handle cold weather, growing up in Chicagoland and living through that bitterness, plus the lake effect snow. Then, I visited my brother when he was living in Minneapolis. Oh my goodness, what a difference!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 11th, 2005 05:17 am (UTC)
Oh, Minneapolis is cold! I visited a friend of mine there once and we were dying it was so cold - and it wasn't even the dead of winter! :P Two short girls from Hawaii who were ill-prepared for the weather trying not to freeze our butts off. It was rather fun, actually. ;)

You know, don't be so hard on yourself! When I had told my friends (one visiting from slightly north of Seattle, and another from freeze-capital, Minnesota) to bring some light sweaters/windbreakers, they laughed at me! Well, they came in december time. They ended up buying light sweaters/windbreakers, cause although it wasn't really cold, the strong gusts had them shivering! :P

I am so excited for you and your mom getting to travel together!! How awesome is that!! Enjoy it, as I know you will!!! :)

Oh yeah.. it was 78-80F here the other day and we were all thinking, "wow, it's so nice and cool, pleasant day!" :P we average 90F year round!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 11th, 2005 05:21 am (UTC)
I'm so excited about traveling with my Mom - it's been over a year since we've gone on a trip together. We really do have a lot of fun spending time together. :D

I love colder weather, but I don't think I could live in a place that was bitter cold for two or three months out of the year. It is nice to visit, though. :) And I didn't know that it's in the 90's year round there!

Well guess what, we Californians do the same thing...arghhh, it's 70 degrees, wheres my puffy coat...LOL
Sheri: Sheri - wink yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 11th, 2005 05:26 am (UTC)
Haha! :D It was so cold this morning (just 60 degrees, mind you) ;) that I almost went into my suitcase to take out my gloves. Yes, I'll admit that I don't deal with the cold well. ;)
the36thchamber on January 11th, 2005 12:40 pm (UTC)
Hey girl, don't feel bad, i am a complete candy ass when it comes to cold...LOL...the balf head really does me in...;P...the price I pay for spirituality...lol

We really had very nice weather today - sunshine and +15°C (what would be around 60°F if I got it right). And that in winter what is kind of strange. Still, according to the weather forecast it shall be cold again at the end of the week. However, the day today showed how much I missed the sun and the warmth even if I like snow too. :)

I think that your Mom will enjoy the shows which you have picked out and I hope that you both will have a wonderful time. :)

Hope you had a nice day, Sheri.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 11th, 2005 05:28 am (UTC)
Glad that you've been having nice weather! It must be nice for Micki since she can probably stay out longer on walks. How does Micki deal with the cold? I'd always wondered what Sydney would do if we ever took her outside in the snow. ;)

Thanks, Sabine! I always have fun when I spend time with my mother - she's great to travel with! :) Hope you have a nice day, too! *HUGS*
Sabine: Micki's placesabine10 on January 11th, 2005 10:06 pm (UTC)
First I've thought Micki would not like it so much when it's cold - she looked like as if she would freeze. But after the last snow, what of course was only for a short time, I think that she can deal with it very well. Actually I'm sure, that Sydney would like snow - they have so much fur. :)

Wish you both a lot of fun. :) *Hugs*

Hehehe, I know what you mean by saying you are cold. People look at me and say huh? LOL! It has been raining for atleast the last 5 days. So, the weather is a it colder.
Sheri: Sydney - couchshutterbug93 on January 11th, 2005 05:30 am (UTC)
I've been hearing about all the rain that you've been getting up there! :( I like colder weather, but the rain seems a little excessive. :(
