Doug & Sheri

California dreaming :)

I can't believe that this time next month I'll be in LA! :) It seems a little surreal since I haven't been back there in over a year (and prior to that I used to go every two months or so). My work trip arrangements have finally been approved and finalized so it looks like I will have a little more time to see some shows, eat at Macaroni Grill, and shop at Bath & Bodyworks. :D Yay!

Last night I did some trip planning and finally purchased our tickets to "Brooklyn Boy" at South Coast Rep. I was waiting for discounts to pop up, but I got some pretty good seats at a really good price, so I bought them. :) I also bought my ticket to see "Dorian" (which is based on "The Picture of Dorian Gray" by Oscar Wilde) at the NoHo Art Center. And though I've heard good things about Max Von Essen, I wish that David Burnham was cast as Dorian. I think he was the original Dorian since I think it's his picture on the show poster. I saw David in "Assassins" with Kevin last year and he was UN-believable!

I also called the vet's office to reserve a spot for Sydney in boarding. We'll be leaving her there for 6 nights - which is the longest that we've had to board her so far. :( I worry that she'll be afraid of the other dogs and stand up (like she did the last time) all night long and not get any sleep. :( The last time we boarded her she also shed her entire undercoat from all the stress. :( It's such a shame that our trip happened to coincide with the in-law's trip, since they usually watch her while we're away. :(

And finally, in non-trip news - Mark's a little disappointed because the new Silent Hill game came out and he forgot to stop by the Software, Etc. on the way home to get it. It just means that it's one more night that I'll actually get to see him without having to vie for his attention with a video game. ;) I'm kidding of course, since I know we all have our vices - his happens to be video games, mine is theatre. :)

I'm off to grab a shower, hope you all have a nice evening! :)
