Thanks so much...  
...for all of your comments in my last entry! Bets was sweet enough to send over some great candid photos of the Awards Ceremony for her site. :) I wish I could've been there, but seeing the photos and hearing the re-caps were really the next best thing. And this is a very exciting week for Bets - not only because of the LADCC awards last night, but her new show, "Pilgrim" opens on Thursday! :)

Thanks to several LJ and MySpace friends (who know who they are) ;), I spent the majority of the night last night on YouTube... I must've played this Jesse L. Martin "I'll Cover You" clip (from the BROADWAY production of Rent!) at least a dozen times. He's just so... I'm not even sure I can describe in words what an attractive man he is... *SIGH* I adore him! Just the way he looks sort of shy when he asks, "Are we a thing?" and the way he takes Angel's hands in his and the way he steals shy glances at him as they walk... *SWOOOOOOON* :} He makes my knees seriously weak... ;) I may have to start watching "Law & Order" marathons with Mark... though I don't find him nearly as attractive in that role for some reason...

In other non-theatre news, tomorrow night I'm going to meet Susan for dinner. It's been a while since we've had our monthly dinner nights and I've definitely missed talking with her. :( Sometimes I feel that maintaining friendships these days takes so much more effort than it did before. For those people in RL that I hardly get the chance to see, my constant fear is that we'll lose touch, like so many of my other friendships from high school and college. Since I've been working and married (and living all the way out here in the middle of nowhere...), I've become very insular... I only tend to see my co-workers, Mark, and my family these days... I would hate for Susan and I to grow apart... :( hopefully our monthly dinner nights will be a good way for us to keep in touch. :)

And finally, I turned in my choices for my Top 5 American Idol picks this morning (we all had to pick before the show tonight):

1. Katharine
2. Chris
3. Taylor
4. Mandisa
5. Elliot

We have 23 people playing and 12 out of the 23 people picked Chris to win it all. I like Chris, but Katharine, to me is a more versatile singer... I like Lisa, but I'm not sure how long she'll stay...

Well, I'd better run (and possibly watch that Jesse L Martin clip one more time...) *SIGH* Hope you all have a nice evening!! *HUGS*

Thanks, Hanna! :) I love the pictures of Bets at the awards ceremony too! True, I would've loved to have been there, but this is really the next best thing! She's the sweetest! :)

You should run out and rent it -- Jesse L. Martin is incredible in it!! *SIGH*
carush_girl on March 17th, 2006 05:32 pm (UTC)
What I should do it is buy it!! Im not a renter any more... But the thing is I always wait for the dvd's to go sale.

Jesse L. Martin = BEST

He's SO charismatic in the role... I just love him. Something about him in this particular clip of this onstage performance really makes me swoon, though... Did I mention I love him?? :)

Awww, that was so nice of Bets to send you those photos for her site. :) I'm sure she deserved every bit of that award!! :D

I hope you have a wonderful time at the dinner tomorrow night! :) I'm sure you and Susan wouldn't drift apart if you guys stay in contact and have those monthly dinner nights. :)

Have a nice evening, Sheri, and big *hugs!* :)

It was so sweet of Bets to send me those photos!! She's the sweetest person, she really is - I feel so fortunate to have gotten the opportunity to know her!

And thanks for your sweet words, Kristen! Susan and I had a marvelous time! We both promised to get together more frequently!

Hope you're having a nice week! Big *HUGS* to you!!

All I heard around "Rent" movie time was how hot and wonderful Taye Diggs was. I was like, "HUH!?!? Have you people even looked at Jesse L. Martin for one second????"

He lit up the screen in "Rent."

He got me obsessed with "Law and Order" last summer.

He's so hot and an amazing actor. On "Law and Order" he is a whole different kind of hot - the looks sharp in a suit and can take charge of a situation kind of hot.

I know, I TOTALLY agree!! Jesse was perfection in "Rent" - I LOVED everything about his portrayal (though I do have to say, this video clip of his broadway days is extrememly swoon-worthy... much more than I think his performance in the movie...) *SIGH* :)

I really have to join Mark for a "Law & Order" marathon soon! He's SUCH an amazing actor... *SIGH*

That "I'll Cover You" clip is my favorite part of the movie. They were so sweet together.

My Idol top 5 is pretty similar to yours except Taylor and Mandisa are my two favorites.
Sheri: Jesse L. Martin - Rent the movie *SIGH*shutterbug93 on March 16th, 2006 07:51 am (UTC)
The "I'll Cover You" scene from the movie was my favorite part too! :) But there was something really special about the video from his broadway days... It's not the best quality, but I could still see the amazing chemistry between Jesse and Wilson Jermaine Heredia... It's just SO sweet!! *SIGH*

I must watch it again... ;)

I LOVE JESSE! He's so fantastic. His performance as Collins is really one of the most moving performances ever. ♥ And he just seems like such a nice guy, you know?

Have a great dinner with Susan!
Sheri: Jesse L. Martin - Rent the movie *SIGH*shutterbug93 on March 16th, 2006 07:53 am (UTC)
I have to agree with you - it was SO moving and what I love about him is that he really bares his soul as an actor and I love when performers are courageous enough to do that! I just love him. And after watching that clip, I love him even more. :)

And thanks so much, Karen! I had a wonderful dinner with Susan!! :)

I still got to see your last entry but then my computer thought that it needed a rest. :( So, I'm late but, congratulations to Bets! And that are really great photos which she sent you. I especially like the last one. :)

Wish you and Susan a wonderful time. And I'm sure that your monthly dinner nights are a good way to stay in contact. :)

Big *hugs* to you, Sheri.

Awww, thanks, Sabine!! I hope your computer feels better today! :) And I love the photos too - she was SO sweet to send them over!! And my favorite is the last one too - she just looks so happy! :)

And Susan and I had a wonderful dinner!! We both promised to do it more often - 3 months was far too long to have not seen each other!

Big *HUGS* to you!! :)
