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:

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.
