I miss my hubby & fuzzy dog! :(  
Spoke with Mark last night and he said that Sydney keeps looking around the house for me. :( Poor Fuzzy... I always love traveling and seeing shows, but I really do miss Mark & Sydney a lot!! :(

In happier news, I spent yesterday at the mall. I rarely go shopping for clothes back home because it's ridiculous what a small selection we have there! All the clothing stores back home either have clothes that were made for 16 year olds... or 80 year olds... NOTHING for 30-something career people! :( I love Ann Taylor clothes, but I can't afford to go shopping there too often... I also love the clothes at NY & Co. - which sadly we don't have in Hawaii. :( Thankfully it was a good shopping day and I found a few things at NY & Co and even something at Express. :)

Went to see another showing of "I Love A Piano" last night. :) Much more energy tonight from the actors and much more energy from the audience - which was very understandable for the actors since they had a benefit all student performance on Thursday morning at 10am - they must've been exhausted the other day!! :( It seemed to be a bad technical day, though - Dan Pacheco's mic wasn't working throughout most of the first act - which was very sad for him and for us since he has a really nice voice! :(

Enjoyed speaking with Kevin and Julie after the show again and Julie was so sweet... She came out with a cute box which she made out of Wild Party postcards! :) I opened it when I got back to the hotel and found the cutest necklace inside! :) She makes jewelry and crafts in her free time (which I can't imagine she has a lot of, having two young children and working in LA theatre full time!) In any case, I absolutely love it and it was just SO sweet of her!! :)

I also met Jill Townsend that night. She played the "Judy Garland" type character in the show. She was SO nice and remembered seeing me when she was in the audience of "It Came From Beyond!" She spent some time talking with us since she and Julie all carpooled in to work with Kevin. Julie told me how she could actually see everyone in the audience which was very interesting for me since I always wondered how far they could see... I thought they could only see the first two rows... And Kevin didn't have any news for me yet, though he did say that he would have some kind of news (good or bad, I'm not sure) by Sunday so I'm crossing my fingers that it'll be good news.

Today I'm heading into the Burbank/Hollywood area for shows... I'm seeing "Bark" again so I can see Kristi - it's been so long since I've seen her! And then it's off to the Colony Theatre to meet up with Steven to see "The Two & Only". :) I'm pretty excited about that. :) And in-between?? Trader Joe's and other places I need to run to for omiyage (travel gifts) for the folks back home. :) I'm off to make a sandwich and get on yahoo maps for directions! :) Hope you all have a nice Saturday!!

Shopping for omiyage is so much fun!! It's one of the most fun parts of my trip. :)

And my poor Fuzzy! :( I wish she knew I'd be home in a couple of days! :( Your poor Ginger!! She's going to miss you next week! :(

I can't wait to see you and "I Love A Piano." I have enjoyed reading about your excitement about it and now I'm excited!!! :D I'm glad you got some shopping in. It's always nice to find some great clothes. Trader Joe's is a weekly stop for me now. :) I get my bananas and soy milk from there. Oh yeah, I also sneak in the demo snacks they make. :P

I hope you have a nice day today. See you tomorrow! *HUGS*

YAY! I'm so excited that I'll be seeing you guys tonight!! :D It's a really cute show and Kevin and Julie are SO great in it! :D I hope you guys will enjoy it. :D

I LOVE Trader Joe's!! I wish we had one in Hawaii! :(

Big *HUGS* to you and I'll see you tonight!!

I'm glad you're having such a great time in lA! :) I always enjoy reading about your theatre trips!

Awww, poor Sydney! :( I always miss my dogs when I'm away from home, too!

Have a nice day, Sheri, and big *hugs!*

The trip has been wonderful so far!! :) The only downside, of course is missing the hubby and the cute fuzzy! :( Poor Sydney! :(

Hope you're having a nice weekend, Kristen!! Big *HUGS* to you too!

Poor Sydney, she misses you! Even being 19, I love Ann Taylor clothes, too...they are quite classy and they always have a clean look to them. But yes, they are expensive. Glad you've been having such a great time in LA! Some days, going to the mall can be a great treat!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on April 30th, 2006 05:22 pm (UTC)
My poor fuzzy!! :( I miss her a lot and I wish there was someway that she could understand that I'll be home soon. :( I LOVE Ann Taylor clothes!!! I usually can only browse there, though - they are SO pricey!! Hope you're doing well, Rachel!! *HUGS*

Here too you find many shops which mostly sell something "for 16 year olds... or 80 year olds" and since I also need to find something what not only looks nice according to others but also gives me a kind of feel good when I wear it, I can't say that I like going shopping here in the city. So, a good shopping day and to find some things sounds nice to me. :)

I do understand how much you miss Mark and Sydney. But I'm also glad that it sounds like that you have a wonderful time, thanks for sharing it. Hope you have a nice day!

Big *hugs* to you, Sheri!
Sheri: Sydney & Sherishutterbug93 on April 30th, 2006 05:24 pm (UTC)
It surprises me that there aren't more places that sell clothes for people in the thirties. Casual, yet business and something that we can actually afford. :P I was glad that I was able to find some things. :)

I miss Mark & Sydney a lot! :( I love LA, but I'd love it more if they could come with me! :(

Big *HUGS* to you, Sabine! I've been thinking about you!!

You're having a really nice time up there! I wish I could have gone to see some shows when I was in Atlanta.

You're right about clothes, but then I've been shopping at Ross' and stuff. I usually find something there. *L*
Sheri: Sydney *SIGH*shutterbug93 on April 30th, 2006 05:26 pm (UTC)
I can never seem to find any clothes back home! :P They're all either too young or too old for me. :( OR they're Ann Taylor and I can't afford it! :P

My wife has lamented the clothes for people our age. Someone should open a store...
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on April 30th, 2006 05:28 pm (UTC)
I think someone should! I'm surprised with all the thirty-something career people around, that there isn't a larger selection of clothing stores geared toward people our age. :P You should open one, and move to Hawaii so I can shop there. ;)
Michael Corleyclivec on April 30th, 2006 07:46 pm (UTC)
I would if A: I knew anything about clothes B: knew anything about hawaii and C: knew which island you were on :)

Clothes shopping can be so frustrating - but so happy when you find the kind of stuff you're looking for! So yay for your successful shopping excursion! :) Glad to hear you're having a good time!
Sheri: Sheri - yahoo iconshutterbug93 on April 30th, 2006 05:31 pm (UTC)
It's very frustrating at times! :P When I find something that I actually like, chances are it won't fitt me right - so when I find things I like that actually fit, I'm so happy!! :)

You must be getting SO excited about NY!! I'm getting excited for you! :D

Now you make me curious. How far can they see in the audience? I've been asking myself this question for quiet some time. Further then the second row? What did Julie tell you?
Sheri: Julie Jacksonshutterbug93 on April 30th, 2006 05:34 pm (UTC)
Julie told me that when she's not singing on stage she can actually see really far into the audience (as long as the spotlight is not directly on her). I think she said that most people try to block out the audience, but she doesn't. :)
white_princess on May 1st, 2006 09:00 am (UTC)
Wow that's intresting. Thanks for sharing this with me.
