Stolen from so many people...  
...but most recently, the36thchamber, kathyselden, and cahwyguy.

Take a look at my interest list. Comment on which one seems the most odd/interesting to you. My note: Not necessarily that the interest itself needs to be explained, but maybe that it just seems odd that it's an interest of mine.

And I'll explain it. (or try to) ;)

Then post this in your journal so other people can ask you about your interests. :)

Thanks in advance! :)

Mmmmm dim sum!

But I will ask about hurricane popcorn. :)
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 29th, 2005 04:16 pm (UTC)
Mmmmm! Hurricane popcorn is my favorite snack! :) It's a mixture of buttered popcorn, arare (soy sauce rice crackers), and furikake (the salty mixture of sesame seeds & seaweed) :). It may sound like an odd combination, but it's the most yummy thing out there - I'm SO addicted to it! :D

So much food in my user info interests, huh? ;)

What about Spitfire Grill?

And that hurricane popcorn sounds so good. ;)

"Spitfire Grill" has become one of my favorite musicals. It was never produced for the broadway stage, but it's such a sweet show (based on the movie of the same name, with a few changes for the stage) with a great score and heartfelt lyrics. I was fortunate enough to have been able to see Kevin in this show in 2002 when it was showing at the Laguna Playhouse in CA. :)

Thanks for your comment! :D

Let's see. How about:

fuddy meers

musubi

and of course:

pasadena playhouse

Sheri: Sheri & Nickshutterbug93 on January 29th, 2005 04:36 pm (UTC)
Fuddy Meers - is my favorite straight play (and I think, David Lindsay-Abaire's best work.) As much as I love theatre, there haven't been too many straight plays that have left a real impression on me - except for this one. :) I saw The Colony Theatre's production of this show in 2003 and really, I went to see it to "fill in" my theatre weekend since I'd gone to see other things, but to my surprise, I really enjoyed it. It was funny, touching, heartfelt, and surprisingly warm - it's become one of my favorite straight plays to date (helps that Nick was in the cast) ;)

Musubi - one of my favorite picnic foods! :) A rice ball, covered in nori (seaweed) is the yummiest thing when included with a piece of teriyaki chicken or (don't say yuck, we in Hawaii take spam seriously ;)) spam. No "bento" is complete without a musubi! :) It's on my list of interests because I crave it all the time! :)

Pasadena Playhouse - :) Some of my favorite theatre moments were at this theatre. :) Besides, it's so quaint and I love the fact that they have quality shows there and they're 15 minutes away from the hotel I always stay at in Burbank. ;)

arare?
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 29th, 2005 04:58 pm (UTC)
Yummy! Arare is my favorite snack! It's soy sauce flavored rice crackers that sometimes have a bit of chili pepper flavor or may be covered with nori (seaweed) :) I love it because aside from it being fat free (YAY!) it also goes really well with buttered popcorn (see above comment on hurricane popcorn) :) The only thing about arare, is that though it is delicious, the um... aroma ;) that surrounds a person who eats it isn't pleasant for people who don't know what it is. ;) So I'd never eat it in public in any place other than Hawaii. ;)
kathyselden on January 29th, 2005 05:13 pm (UTC)
I'm going to go with dim sum. Mainly because I have no idea what it is/means. :D
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 29th, 2005 05:35 pm (UTC)
Mmmm... dim sum is one of the yummiest things around (except for coldstone ice cream, of course!) ;) It's popular here in our Chinese restaurants. Usually steamed and filled with shrimp or scallops (but sometimes mushrooms, spinach and other vegetables) it comes around to your table in little carts and you pick and choose which ones you want. My favorite is the one has shrimp, scallops, and spinach. It's SO delicious! :)

Hmmm... my conversations with you on LJ always leave me so hungry! :D

Big Island Candies?

I've heard Shaun mention this, but he's not picking up his cell phone right now to tell me what they are.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 30th, 2005 01:20 am (UTC)
Mmmmm! Big Island Candies are a favorite of mine! :) They're famous for their shortbread cookies hand-dipped in chocolate. :) Unfortunately, they can only be found on the Big Island or through their website for outrageous fees. :P Whenever I'm in Hilo I HAVE to stop by there and pick up a few boxes of cookies to bring back,... they are SO addicting!!

BTW, I just noticed how many of my interests have to do with food. ;) No wonder I'm in need of a diet. ;)

Tell me about "coldstone"! :)
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on January 30th, 2005 03:33 am (UTC)
Oh, Coldstone is so delicious! :) It's the best ice cream that I've ever eaten! :) They have flavors like cake batter, cheesecake, and banana and you can choose mix-ins (which consist of things like brownies, crushed candies, fresh fruit, chocolate syrup, and even graham crackers.) :) My favorite is banana ice cream with strawberries and blueberries mixed in! It's SO heavenly! :D

Haha! Again with my many food interests! :) I think I may have as many food interests as theatre interests. ;)

Yay! Thanks for answering this, Kristen! :)

Fuddy Meers - is my favorite straight play (and I think, David Lindsay-Abaire's best work.) As much as I love theatre, there haven't been too many straight plays that have left a real impression on me - except for this one. :) I saw The Colony Theatre's production of this show in 2003 and really, I went to see it to "fill in" my theatre weekend since I'd gone to see other things, but to my surprise, I really enjoyed it. It was funny, touching, heartfelt, and surprisingly warm - it's become one of my favorite straight plays to date (helps that Nick was in the cast) ;)

Into the Woods - I hadn't even realized that this was still an interest of mine! :) It's a great musical by Sondheim about what happens in the fairy tales that we're familiar with (Jack & the Beanstock, Little Red Riding Hood, etc.) after the "happily ever after". I saw the revival of this show in LA before it went to broadway back in 2002. It was the first show that I saw that featured my beloved Christopher Sieber *SIGH* - who was SO funny as Rupunzel's prince. I also loved Chad Kimball as Milky White - Jack's cow. :)

Thirtysomething - it was one of my favorite TV shows all throughout my first several years of college. It was about people (who are the age I am now). It was very well written and very wonderfully acted. It introduced me to Peter Horton as a director. :) I loved that show - it's a shame they don't show it in re-runs. :(
