Just came home from a fabulous dinner with Susan. :)  
It's always so nice to see her, but the nicest thing about our dinners is the girl-talk. :) And tonight Susan said the sweetest thing to me... She told me that when all of us go out together, she sees the way that Mark & I talk to each other and she can tell we're perfect for each other. :) In a way it made me sad, though because I realized the reason why I miss Mark so much isn't because I'm lonely, but I really miss sharing the mundane day to day things with him because he truly is my best friend. *SIGH* Is it the 17th yet?? :(

In theatre news, Julie Dixon Jackson's show "The Wild Party" opened last night at the Blank Theatre. :) Read some great audience reactions to the opening night show and found a lot of pictures of the production online - and I can't wait to see it! :)

In short "Commander In Chief" news, I have to say a big WOO HOO for Julie getting so much air time in Tuesday night's episode! :) Not only did she have a lot of air time, but she's already establishing herself as a character with a lot of compassion (I loved the scene where she's trying to get Rebecca out of the car) and who could possibly play a larger role (as sort of a confidant to Rebecca) as the series progresses.

I enjoyed Tuesday's episode (mostly due to the focus on Mac's family.) Didn't like how they constantly beat us over the head with the "gender role" issue (I think that's getting kind of old...) What I'd like to see in upcoming episodes is how Mac's personality and integrity influences her role in the White House and with her family, not just the simple fact that she's a woman president...

And finally, because I was tagged by audienceawaits, I stole this:

I saw Wednesday's C-in-C as well (and hooked my wife). It's getting much better, and should get even better as Bochco takes over the reins. I also noted Julie's larger role. Nice.
Sheri: Julie Annshutterbug93 on October 15th, 2005 07:08 pm (UTC)
I heard about Bochco taking over - should be interesting to see how the show changes once he does. Love the extra exposure Julie got on Tuesday. :)

I'm glad you have Susan to talk to. *big hugs*
It's nice to have your hubby your bestfriend too.
Sheri: Mark & Sheri 1999shutterbug93 on October 15th, 2005 07:09 pm (UTC)
I'm so thankful that I have such a wonderful friend like Susan! She's the best! :) And Mark truly is my best friend - I wish he'd come home already! I miss him! :(
I'm so cool too bad I'm a loser: loooveaudienceawaits on October 13th, 2005 07:33 pm (UTC)
Aw, you and Mark are adorable! It's so lovely... ♥
Sheri: Mark & Sheri 1999shutterbug93 on October 15th, 2005 07:10 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Gill :) I miss him! I wish he'd just come home already! :P

I'm so glad you did this meme...I love these things. :)


I realized the reason why I miss Mark so much isn't because I'm lonely, but I really miss sharing the mundane day to day things with him because he truly is my best friend.

That's so incredibly sweet, and so wonderful. That's exactly the kind of relationship I want to have in my life eventually. You guys are so great. :)
Sheri: Familyshutterbug93 on October 15th, 2005 07:12 pm (UTC)
I love reading (and participating in) these memes too! :)

And thanks for your sweet comments, Karen! I'm so blessed to have found a true soulmate in Mark. :)

I'm looking forward to seeing the episode (have it on tape). I do wonder if Julie, Geena, and Caitlin ever got to see my "fan letters" I sent to all of them? ;-)

I think it will be interesting to see when Mac decides to run for the presidency in her own right (probably around Season 3).
Sheri: Julie Ann - B&W iconshutterbug93 on October 15th, 2005 07:14 pm (UTC)
I'd be interested in hearing your opinion once you have seen the show, Tony.

And YAY for thinking that far ahead in the series! I think the show needs to start dealing more with her ideals and her convictions, because the initial interest in a show about a woman president is already wearing off.
Tony: slidersdudepower1982 on October 17th, 2005 04:17 am (UTC)
Well, I've seen the first two episodes now...still have the one from last week on tape.

I'm surprisingly more impressed with Matt Lanter than I thought I would be (I wasn't thrilled when I read they'd recast Horace). Geena has done amazing in the role, but I agree Julie's part has been too small thus far.

I'm hoping to see Mac really come into her own as a leader...the more they allow her to distinguish herself as a character, the less effectively pundits will be able to sell the myth/propaganda of:
Mackenzie Allen = Hillary Clinton
Sheri: Julie Ann - as Amelia in Takenshutterbug93 on October 17th, 2005 08:03 am (UTC)
I'm thinking the creators of the show are specifically trying NOT to equate Mac with Hillary... In fact, by not tying her to a specific party and also giving her a softer public image, I think she is indeed coming across as her own character, not modeled after anyone.

And Julie's part? WAY too small! :(
Tonydudepower1982 on October 17th, 2005 12:46 pm (UTC)
Well, Rod Lurie seemed to indicate otherwise (i.e. that one article you sent me, his public statements)....*BUT* Steven Bochco has taken over day-to-day operations of running Commander-in-Chief, so maybe that could be a good sign. And I think it's moreso the media pundits than the producers who are guilty of the comparisons. I know what you mean, though...it's awesome that Mac is a political Independent, and she has to deal with animosity from both the Republicans and Democrats.

I'm glad that you've with Susan such a wonderful friend.

he truly is my best friend.
To hear that really made me happy. It's, for me, the best kind of a relationship. :)

Big *hugs* to you, Sheri
Sheri: Familyshutterbug93 on October 15th, 2005 07:16 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Sabine. I do feel very blessed to have both Susan and Mark in my life. :)

Please take care and I hope you're having a nice weekend. :) Big *HUGS* to you!! :)
