Tomorrow night I'm going out to dinner with Susan. She emailed me the other day to say that we should go out since Mark was going to be away - it was so thoughtful of her. :) We've decided to go to a great sushi place near my office and spend our time eating a ton of calories and talking about our men. :D It should be a fun evening. :D
And of course it wouldn't be Tuesday (or my journal) if I didn't gush just a little bit about Julie in "Commander In Chief" tonight. Yay for Julie getting a little larger role this episode - which was actually large enough to earn her one of those "Lurie-esque name labels." :) She looked stunning, as always - but the very first thing I noticed was - no southern accent! I think this is only the second time I've seen her in a performance where she didn't use her southern accent at all (the first was "Taken"). I remember being really surprised when I first met her that she didn't have an accent at all (Kevin says it only returns when she's calling home - or when she's really upset.)
This episode was a huge improvement over the pilot - and actually had a glimmer of something that I'd be interested in seeing again. And sad as it may be - the more I think about it, the more I realize that by Julie playing the secret service agent, it would be very hard for her to be put into a position where her character would be allowed to grow. :( I'm hopeful that as the series goes on there will be much more of a possibility for character development (especially since she seems to be sort of a mother figure and a confidant to Rebecca), and I hope the writers decide to explore that more. Anyone else see tonight's episode?
I'd better run so I can spend a little more time with Mark since he'll be gone for the next two weeks. :( Hope you all have a nice evening.
