The much better parts of my trip...  
I know that I spent the better part of the last few days mentioning the not-so-nice parts of my recent trip. In all fairness, there were some really nice parts of the weekend and I guess it would be unfair of me not to mention them...

  • Getting to spend time with Linda and meeting her other theatre friends. No matter what was going on, it was still the greatest joy to hear them all rave about Kevin's voice during the evening show. :)

  • Finally meeting Steven - the BWW.Com poster who I'd been emailing for a while. Not only is he very knowledgable about LA theatre, but he's also a big fan of Kevin, Nick, and Julie Jackson's - so needless to say, he and I got along VERY well. ;)

  • Going to Petsmart on Tuesday before driving to the airport. We don't have a Petsmart in Hawaii so it was a real treat to walk in and browse around the store. Sydney ended up being very lucky that I had time to do a lot of browsing that day since I came out of the store with a bunch of toys and treats for her. :) I even got a new tag for her collar engraved (while I watched) with our new phone numbers since the one she has is old and worn and has our old phone number - which has since been disconnected.

  • Eating at Claim Jumper! :) I have to say that the salt and pepper shoestrings from Claim Jumper are some of the best that I've ever eaten! :D Why is it that we don't have a Claim Jumper in Hawaii? :P

  • And really... in all honesty, it was one of Kevin's stronger performances to date. The material was perfect for him and allowed him to belt and show his incredible range AND the role itself was one that allowed me to see the sincerity I always like to see in Kevin's acting.
So I guess I really shouldn't complain, the trip ended up not being so bad after all...

On a similar theatre note, I REALLY want to see "Wrong Turn at Lungfish" when I go to LA in May! I've heard so many good things about it and I love Hector Elizondo and Jason Gedrick! Unfortunately, they don't have a Sunday evening show and I'd already planned to see the "Applause" matinee that day. It's a shame too because the theatre is only about a block away from my hotel...

And finally, all this traveling has made me extremely exhausted at work these past couple of days (must be my old age showing) ;). The oddest thing is that it seems like the more sleep I get - the worse I feel the next morning at work. :P I was actually feeling the most alert the first day back from my trip when I'd only had 2 hours of sleep the night before. :P Thankfully this weekend will be a relaxing one for us and hopefully I'll be able to get some much needed sleep. :)

Hope you're all having a nice evening, I'm off to crawl into bed. :P

Claim Jumper is so great! I love their spinach artichoke dip too! It's a shame they don't have a Claim Jumper here - or maybe (for the sake of my diet) it's a good thing. ;) Petsmart is great! I found so many cute things for Sydney there! :D

And I think I might just need about 8 hours of good, uninterrupted sleep right about now. :)

Glad to see that there were good times had on your trip. :)

The shoestring fries are the best!!! :) Oh so yummy, but oh so bad. :p

Since you had gifts for Sydney, was she less upset at you when you returned? :)

I just love the shoestring fries and the spinach artichoke dip! :) I really love Claim Jumper! :D

Sydney was very happy that I brought home all the goodies for her and I think it helped to ease her anger a bit when I got home. ;)

I like going to Petsmart more than Petco. They are both expensive, but hey our babies deserve it. :)

I've never been to Petco, but I've seen them as I drove around LA and have been meaning to try to stop at one too - maybe in May. :D But you are right, our fuzzy babies deserve only the best! Please give a big *HUG* to Sable for me!

Ooooooooooh Sheri you're not going to Ala Moana tonight?

No Ala Moana for me tonight. :P Too exhausted to drive all the way out there. :P Hope you win something there! :D

Awwwwwww! Then again I don't blame you sleep is waaaaaay more important. *L*

I won 10% stuff. That's about it, but my friend's (who works at Apple) student won the new 12" powerbook. He was under 18 though, so his Dad had to come and get it. A few people won the ipod and mini ipods. Bummers, but we did get a chance to look at fool around with Tiger, which was kewl.

Really? You don't have a Petsmart in Hawaii? That's a bummer!!

No Petsmart at all here! :( I have to buy all my good doggie gifts when I go on my trips to LA. :D

WOW!! I wonder why.

Knowing that Hawaiis is one of the busiest place in the United States. Maybe they think that people in Hawaii don't own too many dogs because it's a tourist place?
