Wow - the internet withdrawal!  
Gee - I fall asleep without getting online for one night and so many fabulous friends entries pop up on my friend's page. :) I think I'm just about caught up now, but boy do I feel behind just missing one night on the internet. :P

First of all, I wanted to send BIG *hugs* and thanks out to everyone for their wonderful insight on the situation I was having the other day. (I'd like to keep this entry public, so I won't go into too much detail on what happened - but if any of you who were great enough to lend me your ear yesterday wants to know - I posted an update - not much of one, though - in the reply section of yesterday's post) I still have to say, I have the best darn LJ friends around! *BIG HUGS* to all of you! :)

Thank goodness for short weeks and for Fridays! Actually, this particular Friday is really not a complete joy for me... Not only do I have to endure an 11 hour work day but I have to work on Saturday night too... The Investment Department at the bank is hosting a "Taxbusters" party at one of the nice hotels in Waikiki to thank all the branch people for their wonderful referrals over the past four months. It's a party that the branch employees have to qualify to attend and because of that it's up to us (in the Investment Department) to make sure they have a nice time at the party... so it's still work... And being the rather shy sort of person that I am (hey, no laughing out there!) ;) it's work that I don't particularly look forward to. :P

Other than that, I just realized I had an unused Tower gift card in my wallet from the folks at the bank from my birthday (yes, it was sitting in there for 5 months and I only noticed it now...) :P Wondering if I should buy the "Man of No Importance" CD or just wait for something else... It's been a while since I've bought any cast recordings and really - there's not too much that I'd be interested in getting (maybe "Little Shop of Horrors" or "Wicked" when they come out...) But I'm SO not used to having discretionary money to spend. :P
Current Mood: thankfulthankful

I know what you mean - I usually am on the internet all day at work, but yesterday I was at the workshop, so I wasn't. When I got home, I felt like I had so much to catch up on that I wanted to cry!!!

I try not to be on the internet at work...but I'll admit that I'll sneak a peek every once in a while. ;) I was pleasantly surprised at all the great posts I missed last night, though...it almost felt like Christmas. :) When I come back from vacation, that's another story - that's too much to catch up with and I feel too overwhelmed!

I felt the same way when I got back from Laura's yesterday. So much to catch up on, so little time. I'm sorry that you have to work tomorrow. :( That's a bummer. Try to at least enjoy yourself a little. Take care and try to have a wonderful weekend. :) and BIG *hugs* back to one of the best LJ friends around. :)

Thanks so much, Carrie! :) You are just too sweet! :) Hope you have a fabulous weekend yourself! :) *hugs*

Oh...Wicked! I heard some good things about it from the reviews. I love Kristin, she is great! I wanted to check out the cd Nine, but just to listen to it. I dunno about Antonio. hHHAAHHAHA
Sherishutterbug93 on May 31st, 2003 12:06 am (UTC)
Yay! I knew if anyone had some great cast recording advice for me it would be you! :) I think I may just wait until "Wicked" is released. :) I've heard things about "Nine" and I'm kinda curious too. Didn't Antonio win some kind of Award recently for "Nine"? I think it was the Outer Critics Circle...or Drama Desk...or something... I'd be curious to hear it - but you're right, not necessarily buy it... yet. ;)
Kananigirlkananigirl on May 31st, 2003 03:35 am (UTC)
My friend was thinking of getting Nine, I don't know if she's going to decide to get that though. I want to hear Jane sing, that would be great! Antonio got Outstanding Actor in a Musical Drama Desk Awards?

I heard Wicked was good! I would really like to hear the music from that.

How about the KMK DVD that just came out, with Rachel York?
Sherishutterbug93 on May 31st, 2003 10:07 am (UTC)
Ah...okay it was the Drama Desk Awards...I knew he got one of them. Been hearing mixed things about Nine - if your friend does buy it, please let me know how she likes it.

And "Kiss Me Kate" is a great suggestion... :) UGH...too many things I want to get and not enough gift card. :( I'll probably go on Monday and just have a look around during my lunch hour. I know I'll end up spending much more than the gift card - though. :( Thanks for all your suggestions! :)

I'm glad to know Lassie is still alive.

FUNNY I just found a gift card for WAREHOUSE in my wallett....hhmmmm maybe the gift card fairy likes us! ;o)
Sherishutterbug93 on May 31st, 2003 10:09 am (UTC)
Lucky you! The gift card fairy must be working overtime. ;) What are you planning to use yours on?

BTW, I haven't seen you around in a while - how are you enjoying your summer so far?
queenstacey on May 31st, 2003 06:38 pm (UTC)
Yeah I've been busy... I decided to take a summer school class so my summer begins...again in 2 weeks! I had a nice one week off of school though! I've updated my LJ! I'll be posting pics up there soon... maybe tomorrow or later tonight! :)

HOw's summer for you!
