Incredibly sleepy!  
What a shock it was when my slug of a hubby (who normally never wakes up before 10am on his own) woke me up this morning at 7am to go down to the Apple Store. :P Apparently, today was the day they were unveiling the new Mac Minis and iPod Shuffles and he wanted to be the first in line to get one.

So we made the trek across town to go to the Apple Store only to find that their shipment of iPod Shuffles hadn't arrived via FedEx like they were supposed to. :( Disappointed, we looked around at other Mac gadgets and spent the rest of the morning eating Japanese food at Shirokiya. It actually turned out to be a lot of fun (minus the rude awakening this morning ;) and the iPod-less Apple Store). :)

Still haven't been able to catch up on all my sleep from the NY trip - I slept at the unGodly hour of 8pm last night (I was actually falling asleep reading my email last night - which shows you how bad it was.) :P And usually no matter what time I sleep, I'm always awake at 4:30am -- except today. Don't know if I'm coming down with something or if all this traveling is finally catching up with me. :P

In theatre news, I got an email from Julie Jackson today who told me that her daughter Lily's episode of "Medium" is actually airing this coming Monday (and not the Monday from her last email - I didn't want to say anything at first, but I didn't think I saw Lily in the show...) and that she (Julie) is going to be on an upcoming episode of "ER" in February! Woo hoo! If I can't see her onstage, at least I'll be able to see her on TV! :)

And I'm getting increasingly more depressed that I won't be able to see Kevin in "A New Brain" next week. :( I always love the one night concerts that Reprise! offers ("Assassins" was fabulous a couple of years ago) and besides, that courtyard at the Freud has so many great memories attached to it - that was where I first met Kevin, after all! :)

Finally, big *HUGS* to all my East Coast friends out there! Please stay safe and warm this weekend! I'm off to gather the fuzzy dog and take a much needed nap! :)
Current Mood: sleepysleepy
Current Music: "Tradition" - Fiddler - in my damn head! :P

That's funny about Mark and dragging you at some early hour! Bummer tho' that the shipment had not come in! When I was in Hawaii last Summer I didn't dare to even set foot in that Mac store. I was afraid of what I would buy -- everything!

Great that you had a yummy consolation meal at Shirokiya!

It was funny about Mark - normally he'd never think to get up at such an early hour! I guess his mac love won out over his love to sleep in. ;)

The food at Shirokiya was so ono! :D I had some freshly made vegetable tempura and some really good fried shrimp thingy - it was SO good, but really bad for my diet. :P I need a Shirokiya closer to where I live, darn it! :P

Tim wants to get the iPod shuffle as well! He says he can't handle an iPod like mine because he will be afraid he would drop it, and he likes the minis but they don't hold enough storage for him but he likes them because they're light; so he figures an iPod shuffle would be perfect for him!
Too bad their shipment didn't arrive...probably had alot of dissapointed angry people there!
It's hard to catch up on sleep when you travel. Hope your sleep pattern sorts itself out soon :)
You wake up at 4:30am?! omg - why? *lol*
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 23rd, 2005 03:05 am (UTC)
Haha! That's too funny that both our hubbys want the new iPod. :) We got a chance to see the Mac Minis and they were SO small! I had to pry Mark away from the store because he wanted to buy everything! ;)

I always wake up at 4:30am - I can't figure out why - my eyes just open at that time every morning (I don't even need an alarm anymore!) ;P It's insane, though because one of the best parts of the weekend is getting to sleep in! ;)

I will be sure to look for Julie on ER next month. (That is my most favorite show... ever. I never miss it.)

I heard about the new Apple stuff... I was surprised Joe was not wanting to just go look. :)

Hopefully you are not coming down with something and it is just all the jet lag catching up with you. I mean, that's 6 hours you have to catch up on.

Yay! I'm sure Julie will let me know what episode she'll be on as the date gets closer. :) Have you been watching "ER" a long time? The only reason I ask is because the other Julie - Kevin's Julie - was on an episode in season 7 (?) that I really wanted to see and can't find. :( She played Niki the paramedic who had a fling in the back of an ambulance with Malucci. Can't find the episode anywhere - have you seen it?

And hopefully it is just my lack of sleep from traveling... That being up and traveling for 24 hours straight on Sunday must've done me in. :P
ajayne on January 23rd, 2005 04:55 am (UTC)
Oooh! I loved that episode... it got Malucci fired. (I didn't like him anyway!) I have been watching it since the very first episode. Haven't missed one yet. :) If I ever come across that episode again, I will try to record it for you.

Awww, thanks Andrea! I've always wanted to see it, but to wait for it to come out on DVD may take a while (since I think they're only on season 3 or so...) ;)
ajayne on January 24th, 2005 01:26 am (UTC)
I don't think season 3 is even out yet. But when it comes out, I will get it. I LOVE that show.

That is wonderful that Julie Jackson will be in "ER" soon! I'll keep an eye out for her.

Hope you get a good nap :)

Sheri: Julie Ann - as Amelia in Takenshutterbug93 on January 23rd, 2005 03:14 am (UTC)
Yay! Thanks, Rachel! And I'm sure Julie will let me know which episode it is as the date gets closer. :) Julie Ann has to reprise her role on the show too! :) I've only seen her small parts on the show - and not her big episode a few years ago... :(

And I had a great nap, thank you! :) Hopefully it was enough for me to start functioning like a normal person again. ;)

I'm glad to hear that the disappointment changed into a nice time. :) To wake up always at 4:30 am sounds not so really nice to me. Is there any reason that you wake up so early?

Hope that you had a nice nap.

Please take care, Sheri. *Hugs* to you

It was a really nice time. :) I always enjoy spending time with Mark. :) And he's going to call the Apple store on Monday to see if the new iPods have come in so he can put a hold on one. :)

I had a lovely nap - though it never seems like I fully caught up with my sleep - I've been so exhausted ever since I got back. :P

Please take care of yourself, too Sabine! *HUGS* to you and to Micki too! :D
