Julie Jackson

Incredibly sleepy!

What a shock it was when my slug of a hubby (who normally never wakes up before 10am on his own) woke me up this morning at 7am to go down to the Apple Store. :P Apparently, today was the day they were unveiling the new Mac Minis and iPod Shuffles and he wanted to be the first in line to get one.

So we made the trek across town to go to the Apple Store only to find that their shipment of iPod Shuffles hadn't arrived via FedEx like they were supposed to. :( Disappointed, we looked around at other Mac gadgets and spent the rest of the morning eating Japanese food at Shirokiya. It actually turned out to be a lot of fun (minus the rude awakening this morning ;) and the iPod-less Apple Store). :)

Still haven't been able to catch up on all my sleep from the NY trip - I slept at the unGodly hour of 8pm last night (I was actually falling asleep reading my email last night - which shows you how bad it was.) :P And usually no matter what time I sleep, I'm always awake at 4:30am -- except today. Don't know if I'm coming down with something or if all this traveling is finally catching up with me. :P

In theatre news, I got an email from Julie Jackson today who told me that her daughter Lily's episode of "Medium" is actually airing this coming Monday (and not the Monday from her last email - I didn't want to say anything at first, but I didn't think I saw Lily in the show...) and that she (Julie) is going to be on an upcoming episode of "ER" in February! Woo hoo! If I can't see her onstage, at least I'll be able to see her on TV! :)

And I'm getting increasingly more depressed that I won't be able to see Kevin in "A New Brain" next week. :( I always love the one night concerts that Reprise! offers ("Assassins" was fabulous a couple of years ago) and besides, that courtyard at the Freud has so many great memories attached to it - that was where I first met Kevin, after all! :)

Finally, big *HUGS* to all my East Coast friends out there! Please stay safe and warm this weekend! I'm off to gather the fuzzy dog and take a much needed nap! :)
