Kevin as Billy Bigelow in "Carousel"

So, I'm actually mostly packed for my LA trip tomorrow... surprises me that at 10pm on the night before I leave, I'm not still frantically doing my last load of laundry and throwing clothes haphazardly into my suitcase. ;) The packing for this trip took a little more effort - since we're going to the Ovations, I had to make sure I packed dressy clothes as well - with the right shoes, etc... Oh, the horrors of dressing up! ;)

I don't know if I mentioned this, but unfortunately there will be no "Wonderettes" for us on this trip. Being the procrastinator that I am about ticket buying, I only left the Sunday matinee slot open in our theatre schedule and when I finally got my butt down to the site to buy the tickets,... they were all sold out. :( Both Julie and Bets were such dears about it, but I ended up buying tickets to see Kevin in My Way in Escondido instead. I'm SO disappointed that I won't be able to see "Wonderettes," but in a way it worked out for the best since it's been ages since I've seen Kevin onstage...

Speaking of which... lately I'm not sure quite what it is, but my excitement of seeing Kevin onstage has somehow lessened a bit. Please don't get me wrong, I think he's one of the most talented guys around (not to mention one of the nicest guys with the quirkiest sense of humor ever!), but it's been YEARS since I've seen him in a good dramatic role... and really drama is his strength. He's great in comedy, but OH MY GOSH... seeing him in a role like Billy Bigelow is really what made me a HUGE admirer of his talent. I REALLY wish he'd do another dramatic role!!

On a non-Kevin note, poor Sydney dog has NO IDEA that tomorrow she'll have to stay over at my Mom's house and endure the neurotic fuzziness of my Mom's dog Yuki. :P My in-laws are on a trip and can't dog-sit Sydney, so we had no choice but to take her to my Mom's house. Hopefully Sydney will be okay... For those who don't know, Yuki used to be our puppy, but when we brought her home, she would harass poor Sydney so much that Sydney got physically ill from all the stress. We finally gave Yuki away to my Mom and the two have been living much happier lives - growing up on their own. Hopefully they'll get along this weekend while we're gone...

And finally, I'm beginning to worry because my "Queer as Folk" dvds STILL have not arrived. My confirmation Email says that it was shipped on October 19th... I know that it feels like they paddle things out to us by canoe, but really... next week it'll be a month... I think I'll email them if I haven't gotten it by the time we get home from our trip. :P It shouldn't take THAT long, should it??

I'd better go... I'm leaving for the airport after work tomorrow and taking the red-eye to LA. :P If for some reason I'm unable to find a wireless connection, I hope you all have a nice weekend!! :)
