Reason number 1,453 why I love my job & "Rent" the movie...  
My boss was nice enough to let us all go at 2pm yesterday since the office was extremely quiet. As soon as the trades were processed for the day, she started to shoo all of us home one by one. :) The bank remained open until 6pm and she stayed the entire day by herself answering phones and covering for us. I really couldn't ask to work for a sweeter boss!

Due to my early release from work, Mark & I decided to go to catch the 7pm showing of "Rent" at Kapolei Theatres. We were pretty shocked that the theatre was SO empty! :( In total, there must've only been about 20 people there to see it - and most of them didn't seem to be prior "Rent" fans (they laughed at things like Maureen's "suicidal Mickey Mouse" line in "Over the Moon" as though they'd never heard it before)

The movie itself was lovely - it was shot so beautifully. I loved finally getting a chance to see the original cast in their roles. Jesse L. Martin gave a stunning performance as Collins (major *SWOOON*) - his reprise of "I'll Cover You" was extremely powerful and practically had me in tears. Adam was sweet and poignant as Roger - I'd never seen him in anything before this and I never really understood the attraction, until now... :) Wilson Jermaine Heredia was a beautiful Angel - he just exuded love. All in all I thought it was a beautiful movie and it captured the spirit of the show pretty well. I have to admit not having been so enthusiastic about "Rent" when I first saw it on Broadway (I'm not sure why - I know I was in a ROTTEN mood when I saw it, maybe that had a lot to do with it...) but the movie was very moving and I really enjoyed it. BTW, my new Collins icon is courtesy of the lovely audienceawaits - thanks Gill, it's just as beautiful as he is... *SIGH* :)

And on a completely different, non-Rent note - sadly I think I may be coming down with something. :( I woke up this morning VERY congested with a really sore throat. :( I'm just hoping I'm able to fight whatever it is off this weekend, I have a lot of things coming up next week (an important meeting I have to attend on the 1st, and then our department's Christmas party on the 2nd.) :( Airborne, here I come! :P Hope you all have a nice Saturday. :)

Your boss really seems to be nice. :) I'm glad that you could leave earlier your work and that you enjoyed the movie. :)

I'm sorry to hear that you don't feel well. Hope that it's nothing serious! And yes, I too heard that sleep and chicken soup shall be very helpful.

Please take care, Sheri. Big *hugs* to you

She is! She's more like a mother than a boss to all of us, I really couldn't ask for a nicer boss. :) And the movie was lovely... I'm still thinking about it. :)

And thanks so much for your comment, Sabine. :) I think I must've just needed some serious sleep. I don't think I really had a chance to catch up from my trip and yesterday that was all that I did. Thankfully now I feel much better. :) Thanks so much!

Big *HUGS* to you too! :D
