So... I've decided to bury my grudge with Amazon this weekend and went in (against my better judgement) and purchased a few things - "A New Brain" Cast Recording and "Making It On Broadway" (yes, I still haven't read this book yet!) The problem now when I go to the site is that I want to buy everything there... :P

I actually found something there that I never thought I'd see. Years ago, I saw a TV movie, which I really loved called "Princes In Exile" - I've been looking everywhere for any type of information on it since then and haven't been able to find anything... until now. And it isn't the actual movie (which I think is sadly out of print), but at least it's something. :)

Found some stunning photos of Julie Ann at the NYC premiere of "Hitch" this past Thursday night. :) Of course she'd be wearing a Max Azria dress! ;) She looks fantastic! :) No Kevin, of course since he's in rehearsals for "My Way." Coincidentally, "My Way" opens the same night as the big Hollywood premiere of "Hitch." It'll be a great night for the both of them, it's a shame they both can't be in two places at once. :(

Mark is downstairs right now playing some Star Trek game. I was pretty surprised since it's been a while since he's touched his PS2. He told me, "I didn't want any of my consoles to feel neglected." I laughed and told him jokingly, "But it's okay that your wife does?" ;) Of course, I was only kidding, though I don't think I'll see much of him for the rest of the evening. ;)

I'm loving the iPod speakers that Mark got me last weekend. :) The only thing is now some of my neighbors (if they listened closely) would be able to tell what weird taste in music I have. ;) I'm off to find the fuzzy dog - hope you all have a nice evening. :D

Now that you have that book you'll never look at theatre the same way again. Or, more specifically, the runaway cart scene. ;-)

Okay... You've peaked my interest. ;) I hope that the book gets here soon! :)

I've had problems with Amazon's stuff taking forever to get here, over 2 weeks or so. *LOL* That's okay though, cause then I get it shipped to me at 2 days. ;-)
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on February 6th, 2005 09:20 am (UTC)
Wow - you are just full of great iPod icons, Rayna! :D I love this icon too! :)

Yikes! I hope my order doesn't take 2 weeks to get here. I'm very anxious to hear the cast recording of "A New Brain" since everyone I know has only raved about it. :)

I'm trying to promote ipods. ;-) Then again a lot of people have them. I love these ipod icons!

I think not, I haven't had problems with them with this last order. The order before this was at Christmas time, so it took a long time. :-P

My last order took 2 days, but Kentucky to Illinois is much shorter than the distance it will be shipping to you, so yours might take a little longer. :) Hopefully not 2 weeks though... that would piss me off.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on February 6th, 2005 06:44 pm (UTC)
I hope not either, but I do admit that it does take things extra long to arrive here through the mail. :P

(1) As for shipping time, it all depends on whether it is in stock, and whether you chose free shipping, where it ships from, and where it ships to. My last order took just about a week with free shipping, but it shipped from NV to CA. The one coming out of DE I expect to take longer. Media mail is media mail. You cope. From what I've seen, the fault lies not with Amazon (who fulfills the order typically within 2 days, if the stuff is readily available), but with the USPS, and the speed of media mail.

(2) I've got the New Brain CD, and it's good (although not one of my favorites). Some of the songs in there are great, however. I just got "Fine and Dandy", "Runaways", "The It Girl", and "Frogs". Frogs is hilarious. Fine and Dandy has some great music. The other two I need to listen too some more.

Although I hope it doesn't take a long time to arrive, that hasn't historically been my problem with Amazon so I'm not too concerned about it. I understand that they are at the mercy of the postal system - and I won't begrudge them if the shipment takes a long time to arrive (since everything to Hawaii does) :P If they send me the wrong order again, though then I'll have a problem with that. ;)

I think I'm just anxious to get my CD. :)

Hey Sherie, its Kristen "tropicalgirl".

I'm back but under another name. I hope you add me back.

Kristen :)

Oh hi, Kristen! I'll go and add you right now! Thanks for telling me and welcome back! :D

Hope Amazon will send quick the things which you've ordered. *crossing fingers*

Actually, I was tempted to comment on your entry with the four questions but my computer "played a trick on me" (there is too much on it), unfortunately. But I enjoyed read the questions and your answers right now. Thanks for sharing them. :)

Hope you had(have) a nice Sunday, Sheri. *Hugs*

Thanks Sabine! :D

Hope you've had a nice Sunday too! :D *HUGS*

How big is her part in "Hitch"? My Mom and I went to see "The Aviator" last night in the theater and they played a coming attraction for "Hitch" and I was hoping to see her in the trailer!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on February 6th, 2005 07:26 pm (UTC)
Oh, I'm not too sure! I know that she plays Eva Mendes' best friend in the show and she's in the extended trailer (that's on the "Hitch" website) but I haven't seen her in any of the ones that have been on TV. :P

You went to see "The Aviator?" How was it?? :D

Ah! Thank you for finding this, Gill! :D Kevin looks GREAT! And Nick is in one of the pictures too! :( I'm even sadder now that I missed it because I could've seen Nick there too! :( Thanks for the link! :D

I did almost all the work on the banners for Hitch, it was fun...:D
Sheri: Julie / Kevin - photo by Sherishutterbug93 on February 7th, 2005 08:14 am (UTC)
You did work on the banners? How great! :) I'm so excited about the movie - I've been waiting for this to come out since I first found out Julie was in it! Wish I could see her during my next trip out to LA, but it looks like she'll probably won't be at Kevin's show and she'll probably be busy promoting "Hitch."

Oh, I totally know how you feel about Amazon. :) But it will be worth it for those excellent purchases! I love A New Brain. And that book is sooo fascinating. You won't be able to put it down! Happy reading and listening! :)

Thanks, Karen! I can't wait to receive my things! :)
