Big plans for the weekend...  
...or at least "big plans" for an old married lady like me. ;) Mark & I are going to the big opening of the Apple Store tomorrow. Mark's a total Mac guy and the opening of the very first Apple store in the island is reason for him to celebrate - so we're going to be there bright and early tomorrow. :) Being the PC person that I am, I'm not completely excited about going, but it'll be nice since I do enjoy seeing Mark so happy. :)

And whoa, in Daytime Emmy news: ...Chad didn't win... and I'm... well,... pretty speechless - though I'm happy for Jordi Vilasuso who really had a great year, IMO. Poor Chad and my poor friends who went all the way there to support him... Though I'm sure they had a good time at the awards anyway. I saw a clip of him sitting in the audience before they called the winner and I have to say a sort of surreal feeling came over me... I hadn't seen Chad on TV for so long that I had forgotten how young he looked and the last time I saw him was in NY almost 2 years ago and it was a little weird to see him on TV like that - I don't know why - it just was...

Random theatre tidbits: "Little Shop of Horrors" ( with Hunter *sigh*) :) opened tonight in Coral Gables, Florida! :) I can't wait to see it in NYC and I've already gotten Mark to commit to a NYC trip with me to see it. :) My other Broadway must sees include "Wicked", "Brooklyn" (with David Jennings from "Side Show" - Yay!), and hopefully "Big River" (with Rod - Yay!)

And lastly - I just found out Nick DeGruccio is directing "The Laramie Project" for Laguna Playhouse in Sept this year AND "Clutter" at the Colony Theatre in Feb next year. Looks like he'll be busy and if at all possible, I'd like to see if I can fit his shows into my upcoming LA trips since he's become my favorite director in LA theatre recently... :) Hopefully they coincide with Kevin's shows so I can save money on airfare! :)
 
 
Current Mood: Still pretty speechless...

Have fun at the Apple store. :) I was also surprised Chad didn't win. I suppose you don't need an award to prove your ability. :)

Thanks, Carrie! :) And true enough - awards are not a true measure of ability. I have to say that I'm really happy for Jordi, though :) and all my friends who are Jordi fans - he really did deserve it this year, IMO. Hope you have a great weekend! :)

Oooooooooh I want one of those kewl G4 laptops. ;-)

Rayna!
Haven't seen you around in a while... Hope all is well.

I think Mark has his eye on the G4 too - only problem is we'll see today if it fits into our budget. ;)

Great to see you back, I've missed seeing your entries on my friend's page. Hope you're having a nice weekend. :)

Re: Rayna!
Awwwwwwww thank you! I've been keeping busy and haven't been home that much or trying to finish my new layout for my Emma site.

This weekend hasn't been too bad, seen a few friends and go to hang out with them tonight.

Are you seeing 'Wicked' in CA?
Sherishutterbug93 on May 17th, 2003 11:54 am (UTC)
Sadly, no...
I'm not too familiar with the San Fran area and strange as it sounds I'd rather wait until it's farther away and harder to get to in NYC and see it then. :) I just have to do things the difficult way. :)

BTW, been meaning to ask you your thoughts on the Tony Noms this year... I was pretty shocked at the exclusion of Kerry Butler, quite honestly - but the rest seemed pretty expected. :) Just curious what your thoughts were... :)

Sounds like a fun weekend to me - we're not even leaving the house this weekend except for work! ;)
Sherishutterbug93 on May 17th, 2003 11:58 am (UTC)
:) Usually that's us as well - which is why the Apple Store is such a big weekend for us. :) Hope you have a nice one as well! :)
