Yay!  
My order from Amazon arrived in the mail today... and more importantly, it was correct! :D I guess Amazon isn't the monster I made them out to be - and I probably should stop saying mean things about them. ;) I haven't had the chance to listen to my "A New Brain" CD yet, but I need to put it on my iPod soon so I'll have it available for my 6 hour plane ride on Thursday. :) I also got my "Making It on Broadway" book which I also plan to use to occupy me on my long flight to LA. :)

UGH... in TV news - tonight I gave in and did something that I never thought I'd do again... I watched "American Idol." :P Our office always does a small pool each year (which I was lucky enough to win last year) so I thought I should start watching it so I could, at least, get in an educated guess. It isn't something I'd normally do, but it is nice to be able to talk with the my co-workers at the "American Idol" de-briefing session that seems to happen every Wednesday morning in our office. :)

On a completely separate note, I have to say that I'm loving the way my Mom has really taken to the internet and emailing! :) I always smile when I see an email from her in my in-box because I remember what a struggle it was to convince her what she was missing out on when she was computer-less. :) Now if I could only get her to start a LJ... ;)

I'm off to hug my fuzzy dog - I know that she must know that something's going on. Whenever she sees me with my suitcase she probably knows that it means that I'll be gone from home for a while... :( Poor Sydney - at least this time she won't have to be alone in a kennel like she was in October. :(

I'm glad Amazon worked out this time. :)

American Idol...I'm getting kinda tired of it. Only watch it to keep up w/everyone at school.

That's so cute that your mom is all into email. :)

Yay for Amazon getting my order correct this time! :D And it arrived just in time for me to use the items on my trip! :D

Mark is kind of getting in to it again this year. He wants to win the annual bet that we have every year (the loser takes the winner to dinner) ;) And last year I won so he probably wants to even the score. ;)

My Mom is so funny with her emailing! :D I'm so glad we got her on the internet! :D

Isn't it fun getting addicted again? *LOL* Anyway, out of the guys, I love Antony, he sang "Angel." The only one that doesn't rift. UGH! Out of the girls I like the 2 that sing country music one was Carrie Underwood and I think her name was Lindsay Cardinale.

I haven't gotten addicted this year yet... I guess I don't know the contestants well enough this year. Carrie Underwood is sweet looking and she sings well - and it was cute that she's a little naive - I hope she does well. I hardly know any of the others, though.

I think this year just like last year, I'm not too hyper about everyone I've seen. I think last year it was bad. *L*

I do like 3 so far, 2 girls and one guy. We'll see next week M, T, and W.

I am glad to hear that Amazon is "redeeming" themselves with you. :)

American Idol... I swore I was not gonna watch it this season, but last night, it was on and I will probably watch it again too. Hahaha! I hate how it just sucks me in.
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on February 17th, 2005 07:37 am (UTC)
I'm glad that my Amazon stuff arrived! Just in time for my trip too! :) The bad part to this whole thing is that now that I have no reason NOT to order from them, I think I'll be spending a bit too much money there... :P Not always a good thing. :P

It's sucking me in again too. I hardly know any of the contestants this year so I'm not addicted... yet! We'll see. ;)

That's cool about your Mom! My Mom and I e-mail each other several times a day and I always crack up that she uses acronyms like "LOL".
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on February 17th, 2005 07:39 am (UTC)
Your Mom is so cute! My Mom is still at the stage where she asks me why I always end sentences with ":)". Haha! She'll get to LOL-ing eventually, I'm sure! ;)

I'm glad that Amazon worked well this time. :)

My father is still dislikes internet and email. Who knows, perhaps your Mom will start a LJ. It would be nice to see her around here.

I hope you will have a nice time in LA. :)

And I'm sorry that I've been so quiet but my computer is really terrible at the moment.

*Hugs*

Yay for Amazon! :) I'm so happy that my order arrived before I left on my trip! :D

It would be funny if my Mom started a LJ! :) Right now she's still at the discovery stage of the internet. She always tells me that she had no idea how much information is available out there. :D

Hope your computer feels better soon! ;)

BIg *HUGS* to you and Micki! :D

hehehe how cute about your mom e-mailing
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on February 17th, 2005 07:43 am (UTC)
She's so funny! I just wished we'd started her earlier on the whole email/internet thing. :) I think she's having a lot of fun with it. :D

I love that book "Making It On Broadway"!! I got it for my birthday in November and I devoured it. It's amazing. So much love lol!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on February 17th, 2005 07:45 am (UTC)
I'm so excited that I'll finally be able to read it - I've heard so much about it! I'm saving it for my long plane ride tomorrow - and NOT picking it up and reading it now is taking all of my will-power! :)
I'm so cool too bad I'm a loser: i <3 NYCaudienceawaits on February 17th, 2005 03:15 am (UTC)
Have a good trip! I'm sure you'll enjoy Making It On Broadway...I loved it!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on February 17th, 2005 07:46 am (UTC)
I can't wait to read it! I almost picked it up last night, but then I gathered my will-power and packed it away so I'll have something to read on my long flight to LA. :)

Oh mom!! Don't leave Sydney again!! I think she begins to HATE that suitcase. *grin* Anyway, by the time you answer and see this comment, you are prolly back from your trip. (um, still catching up with my reading....)
Sherishutterbug93 on February 20th, 2005 05:24 pm (UTC)
Awww! I think you're right! Sydney does hate that suitcase of mine! :( Poor girl - I hate being away from home for so long! :(
