Will & Grace - finger touch

I feel like it's been forever since I've done an update...

The week started off being incredibly stressful at work (Ah, but what else is new, you ask...) :P Aside from my BIG boss requiring me to write my own recommendation for my promotion (which is the hardest thing I've ever had to do -- I hate writing things like that about myself) :P I've still been having a bit of conflict trying to juggle my two jobs and the responsibilities that I need to fulfill for each. :P I certainly hope they find someone for my old job soon. :P

To add to that, everyone in my office is sadly out with the flu so we've been very short-staffed all week. And, of course, as luck would have it, I came down with a fever, chills, and body ache yesterday and actually had to leave work at noon today when I couldn't even put a coherent sentence together... I've taken some tylenol and have slept for most of the day and I think I feel a 100 times better and almost ready to tackle work again tomorrow... It's the absolute worse time for me to get sick, but of course that's exactly when it'll happen to me. I am the queen of bad timing, after all. :P

On a NON-work related note, on Tuesday, a huge army rig damaged an overpass near my workplace and shut down our freeway for nearly 13 hours. Luckily for me, it was directly before my freeway on-ramp, but poor Mark didn't get home from work until 10:40 pm that night and Susan (who works with him) took another route and didn't get home until 1 am - which is just ridiculous! Poor Susan had to go directly to sleep only to wake up a few hours later and head back there... :P The freeway has since been opened again, but it still has to be one of the biggest traffic jams in the history of our island - 5 to 8 hours just to go less than 20 miles? Ridiculous!!

Had a nice three day weekend (it seems so long ago...) Most of it was spent working on websites (which I love) and watching my Season 5 DVD of "Will & Grace" (which I love even more) ;) And although I love Will & Grace, Season 5 just isn't the same as seasons 1 - 4. It really isn't one of my favorites... with the exception of the Barry storyline - in which Will and Jack take Karen's cousin under their wing to create the perfect gay man. I love that Will falls for him and then can't even complete a sentence in front of him... it's so "My Fair Lady" :)

And finally, I've decided on the shows that I'm going to see on my October theatre trip:

Saturday, October 7th (mat 4pm): Rabbit Hole @ the Geffen Playhouse (with Tate Donovan... be still my heart, he looks like and reminds me of Kevin!) ;)
Saturday, October 7th (eve): Urinetown @ the Matrix Theatre (with Matthew Ashford!! How could I pass this up??)
Sunday, Ocotber 8th (mat): The Marvelous Wonderettes @ the El Portal Forum Theatre (I'm SO excited to see Bets and Julie!!)
Sunday, October 8th (eve): Beehive @ the El Portal Theatre (if it's a Nick show, I'm there!!) :)

Hope you're all doing well... I feel so disconnected from everyone since it's been so long since I've been here - I miss you all! :( Things will probably calm down a bit more once they've found someone to take my old position at work and once I finish this new site that I'm working on. I thank you all for your patience with me through all of this! Big *HUGS*
