Poor Sydney - I love it here, but I want to go home!  
Yesterday when I was talking with Mark on the phone, he put the phone up to Sydney, who listened for a bit with interest and when Mark took the phone away, she jumped off the couch and started whining! :( Poor dog! :( Mark said that she spent next few minutes wandering around the house whining and looking for me! :( I've always loved to travel and I love LA, but after that, I just wanted to go home! :(

In happier news, the shows on Saturday were wonderful! During the matinee, Damon had a little trouble opening the champagne in the last number. The cork went flying into the air, hit the roof, and fell on an audience member! :O The cast had to contain themselves from laughing and poor Kevin was right in the middle of his line! I teased Damon about it later, telling him that I couldn't bare to look during that scene that evening. ;)

Kevin also had some mic problems in the evening. During "One More For the Road" his mic went off during my favorite part (where he holds this incredibly LONG note and pours liquor into his glass) Tom quieted the orchestra down, and Kevin kept singing (and really - Kevin's voice is loud enough to fill a theatre with or without a mic) and finished his song. He later told me that he inadvertently turned his own mic pack off (which was on his back) when he leaned against the piano.

Nick was at the matinee and it was so nice to see him! I always get so fan-girl around him and got to take a nice photo of him with the cast. :) He is the sweetest man ever and I'm so glad that I got the chance to see him once during my trip! :)

The shows were great, but the best part of Saturday was getting to see my friends Bobbie and Laura at the show! :D It's such a shame that I only get to see them when I come out for Kevin's shows - but hopefully this year I'll be able to see them a bit more. :)

Today I have matinee tickets to "Miss Saigon" at Fullerton CLO - but I'm SO not in the mood to go... I'll see how I feel about it in a few hours - I may decide to skip the show and opt for a morning at the mall. But this evening I see "My Way" again, but this time with careleswhisper, karmastyx, and rripley - I'm so excited! :D Hope you all have a nice Sunday! :)

Yeah - I'd love to get the chance to meet you one day! :( Too bad you live so far away! :(

Thanks Tom! :) And I may be getting my wish and may be heading out your way soon - I'm not entirely too sure yet, though. :D If I do, you, Amanda, Cameron, and I should get together for dinner or something. :D

When do you get back?
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on February 22nd, 2005 04:40 am (UTC)
I know - I was so sad when Mark told me she was whining! I wanted to jump on a plane and go home right then and there! :( But the good news is that I'm home! And Sydney was very excited when I walked through the door! :) It's so nice to be home - I missed Mark & Sydney SO much!

GREAT Leilani icon, BTW! How is your sweet puppy doing?

Awww poor Sydney!!!

This weather here is such a trip. I cant believe how it changes... pouring buckets then totally sunny then back to pouring buckets! When do you fly out? I hope the rain lets up for your flight out!

I know - the weather was STRANGE! :P And I flew out this morning and luckily I was able to make it to the airport since I couldn't see any of the street signs along the way because of the downpour.

Stay safe, Angie!

i'm so glad you're having such a good time in LA, Sheri! Going to be seeing the show any more before you head home? :) stay safe in this rain!

Saw the show for the last time on Sunday night. Love the cast, love the creative team - such a wonderful show. I was sad to say good-bye yesterday - I'm certainly going to miss them. :(

Please drive safely too, Joy if you're going out in this weather!

I HAD SUCH AN AWESOME TIME!!! As did Laura and Roger. :D Thank you so much for inviting us to join you. It was great!!! I hope you had a nice time as well. It was very cool to get the chance to meet Kevin. I hope we didn't embarrass you in front of him. I hope your flight home is nice and a safe one at that. :) See ya when you get back. *HUGS* Thanks again for the fun filled evening. :D
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on February 22nd, 2005 04:45 am (UTC)
YAY!!!! It was SO nice seeing you guys! I had SO much fun!! THANK YOU SO MUCH for the thoughtful and lovely gift - you really didn't have to get me anything! You're too sweet! :D

I'm so glad that you got to meet Kevin and Damon. They're such sweet guys and so genuine (and so unaware of just how talented they are - which I love) :) It's a shame that you guys didn't get to meet Nick - you would've loved him too!

Thanks SO much for coming last night! Please thank Roger ad your Dad too for driving in all that crazy rain! Big *HUGS* to you, Carrie! :D

Talking of dogs and phones, I was on the phone to my mum and she told Tess to sit down. No response from the deaf old Sheltie she was talking to, but 25 miles away, Ben heard her and came and sat down!

Used to always talk to Tess on the phone when I was away at uni and stuff. Very sweet when they listen to you like that.
