Doug & Sheri

I finally stopped procrastinating...

...and wrapped all my Christmas gifts. :) I know many of my co-workers will be on vacation on the 24th and so I wanted to give out all my gifts tomorrow and Tuesday. Unlike most people, I have a four day work week next week. :( Though we're only open until 1 pm on the 24th, we work the full 11 hr day on the 26th. :P Hopefully everyone will be at the mall instead of the bank that day! I'm going to be exhausted! :P

Some other things:

Wicked - I'm truly addicted to the CD... I've been sneaking it into the car when Mark & I have been going for long drives so he could fall in love with it like I have and I think it's working. ;) Idina's voice gives me goosebumps every DAMN time I hear her belt the endings of either "The Wizard and I" or "Defying Gravity." I really think she's Tony-worthy this year, but that's JHMO.

Nothing on Kevin's Graydon anywhere on the net. :( Only one post from someone who apparently got to go backstage and meet the cast including Kevin on the Official Millie forum. :(

Speaking of which, Mark & I finalized some of our NYC plans this weekend. We're seeing "Avenue Q" - Friday night, "Millie" - Sat matinee, "Wicked" - Saturday evening, "Millie" again - Sunday matinee, "Little Shop" - Sunday evening, and "Never Gonna Dance" - Monday evening. We want to try to fit as many shows as is humanly possible into that one weekend since we rarely travel together to NYC and we want to make it worth our while. :) Thank goodness for discount codes or we'd be going broke!

And lastly, I can't believe that one year ago I took the plunge and started this LJ - and really, my life hasn't been the same since! Since Mark has been sleeping most of the day and I was procrastinating wrapping my Christmas gifts, I went through a few of my old entries. I have to say, a lot has happened in a year... some great, some not so great but through everything, I just wanted to thank you all for being there for me. I couldn't have asked for a better group of friends on LJ. Big *HUGS* to all of you! :)
