Doug & Sheri

Boy did I need this weekend!

Work was actually pretty enjoyable today except for the last half hour when my boss decided to unleash all his pending business on me before he left on his week long vacation. I really don't mind taking care of his pending, but a lot of it was due to his procrastination with difficult situations or customers he didn't particularly want to deal with. Don't get me wrong, I love working with my boss - but sometimes I feel like wringing his neck... :)

And it's been a while, but I'm finally dusting off my "serious" camera and getting back to what I love - taking photos. :) My co-worker told me about an employee photo contest that's going on at the bank where the entries will be judged by a museum art curator. The winners can win gift certificates and will get a showing in the museum portion of our bank's main branch (yes, we have a museum in our bank...) I could care less about winning, but for the first time in a long time I'm determined to start shooting again - and that's got to be a good thing no matter how I look at it. :)

Also, Mark & I decided (okay, so it was just me who decided) ;) to buy tickets to Diamond Head Theatre's production of "Follies" tomorrow night. I thought it might be interesting to see since we saw the LA production with Patty Duke, Harry Groener, Bob Gunton, Vicki Carr, and... well... Kevin :). I always complain that we don't have theatre here, so I thought I should go and see for myself. I know there are talented performers in the islands and I was curious to see their rendition of the show. Besides, it's about time that I supported local theatre! :)

In other GREAT news: my "Parade" CD came in the mail! Woo! :) AND I've been listening to it and it's absolutely beautiful!! I love Carolee Carmello - she's incredible... But I have a few reservations about Brent Carver only because I've been spoiled by hearing Kevin sing the part. ;) And it only occurs to me now that Kevin sang the wrong words during the Mother's Day concert... Oops!

But get this - Amazon screwed up my order AGAIN! Instead of sending me the paperback version of "Parade" (the entire show}, they sent me the vocal selections which I am quite sure I DIDN'T order... :P I'm afraid to send it back because of my horrible return experiences with them from before... :( How hard is it to get an order right?? This is the third time they've sent me the wrong item. :P And if I wasn't so giddy about getting my CD, I might be in a little worse mood about this... Thank goodness they sent the right CD!

BTW, have I mentioned recently that Jason Robert Brown is a genius? :)
