Everyone's talking about the new Harry Potter book...  
...even Kevin. :) When we saw him on Saturday after the matinee he admitted to being VERY addicted to Harry Potter and had planned to use his dinner break to hunt down a copy. Too funny! I was also shocked to find that he and Julie Ann were self proclaimed "Star Trek geeks" :D - just like my hubby!

I'm still in Anaheim this afternoon, but have already checked out of the hotel and am trying to kill some time before my flight home this evening. Went to eat at Fuddrucker's the other night and I'm still in hamburger bliss. :) I'm usually not one for greasy hamburgers, but I have to admit that this place was above average! I'm really going to have to take Mark to a Fuddruckers the next time he's out here with me. :) And I couldn't find a Sonic out here, so sadly my Sonic curiousity hasn't been satisfied... yet! ;)

This trip was possibly the nicest that I've been on in a LONG time and I wanted to quickly re-cap some of the moments of the trip that I will never forget...

Some really WONDERFUL moments this weekend:
  • As I was speaking with Nick after the Sunday evening performance of Guys & Dolls, Kevin came over and held out his phone for me to see. At first I didn't know what he was doing, then I saw it... a text message that said, "HI to Sherilynn." :D :D Julie Ann had just landed from her flight in from Lousiana (where she was shooting a Christmas special) and she was sweet enough to text Kevin the message! She's the SWEETEST person! I just adore her! :D

  • While I was waiting for Kevin to get Nick out from the back, a guy who was standing by the stage door came up to me and asked, "Are you Sheri?" I was SO confused - I had no idea who he was or how he would know my name. I nodded (probably looking about as confused as I felt) and he stuck his hand out and said, "I'm Steve, I'm Bets' husband." Oh.My.Gosh. It was Steve Glaudini! (Bets Malone's hubby) :O I almost fell over! He's the former head of Performance Riverside, the wonderfully talented performer and agent... I was speechless! He was so nice and I spoke with him for a bit and told him how much I'd wanted to see him in 1776. Clearly that was a HUGE highlight of my trip! :)

  • Spending time with my friends (Pat, her hubby Kevin, Terry, Sharon, and Laura) :) after Guys & Dolls on Friday night. :) We had SO much fun talking, laughing, and taking pictures that the theatre workers had to kick us out because they wanted to close the theatre. Even still, we continued our talking and laughing in the parking lot and didn't actually leave until after midnight (and the show ended at 10:30!) We kept hugging each other, attempting to say good-bye every 15 minutes for about an hour, but no one wanted to leave. It's been years since most of us have seen each other and no one wanted to go home. In retrospect we should've probably moved the party over to a Denny's or something. ;)

  • Spending time with Carrie, Laura, and Roger on Saturday. :) I'm so glad they were able to come and see the show. :) They had a lot of fun teasing Kevin about his "apron scene". :D It's always nice to see them and I was so happy they could make it. :)

I also wrote up my impressions of Guys & Dolls, which I will post once I get home - seeing as how this entry has already turned into a novel. :) Hope you're all having a nice start to your week, I'll finally be home later this evening. :) I can't wait to see Mark & the fuzzy dog! :D

Gigantic Trekkie here as well ... does he also get choked up every time Spock dies towards the end of The Wrath of Khan? :)

I didn't know you were a Trekkie as well. :) You'd get along great with my hubby who loves all things Sci-Fi. :D

It seems to me that you can find "Star Trek geeks" everywhere - here too. :) And especially Mr. Spock, someway. :)

I'm happy that you had such a wonderful time, Sheri. Hope you will safely reach your home.

Big *hugs* to you.

It's funny because I never pictured Kevin and Julie to be such Sci-Fi fans. :) Mark will have a lot to talk with Kevin about the next time he sees him. :)

Thanks so much, Sabine. And though I really had a wonderful trip, it's really nice to be home. Big *HUGS*

Sheri I forgot to tell you when I saw you post about before. There is a Sonic on Lemon St. in Anaheim. Maybe next time you can go. :)

A Sonic on Lemon St? I was just on Lemon when I parked to see "Once on This Island"! Drat! Next time I'll know - thanks for the head's up! :D

A lot of people that I've talked to have already finished the book... I'm still not through reading Book 1! ;) My hubby says though that it's been so long between book releases that he has to go back and read them all over again because he's forgotten a lot of things. ;)

Aww, that sounds like so much fun. I'm so glad you had a good time. Everyone needs a trip like that! :)

It was such a wonderful trip! I think that it's one of the nicest I've had in a LONG time! Getting to see my friends from the East Coast had A LOT to do with it, though! :D
