Thank goodness for the weekend...  
...and for Season 3 of Queer As Folk!! As expected, I've pretty much been having a QaF marathon this weekend... All I have to say is... Episode 307 - the "needle" scene (and all the scenes preceding it...) Oh.My.Gosh... There are simply no words for just how talented these actors are. It's my favorite episode EVER... Michael's daydream scene in the beginning of the episode... WHOA... What I love about Michael & Ben's story is that their love scenes all help to further the plot and is in no way gratuitous... The daydream scene showed Michael's desire to understand what it feels like to be positive and connect with Ben in a way that he feels he hasn't been able to since Paul died... What an incredible episode - and what an incredible scene. And Scott Lowell (Ted) was just remarkable in his crystal meth addiction scenes... it was almost too painful to watch - but he is just SUCH a talented actor!

I've actually completed the entire season now... Mark & I plan to go to Sam's Club tomorrow so maybe while we're there I can pcik up season 4... But then I think, what am I going to do after I've finished season 5?? Part of me wants to wait and hold off watching them all because when I'm done, there'll be no more. :P I mean, what will I do then? ;)

In non-QaF news, tomorrow Mark & I are going to Border's for another one of Jon's book signings. :) The interesting thing about Jon is that I knew him all throughout high school, but never once knew that he and Mark grew up together since grade school as best friends. Mark ended up going to a very ritzy private school shortly after 3rd grade and so I never met Mark in high school, but the oddest thing was that I knew all of his friends... Aside from everything else, I really think that just proves that we were destined to meet. :) Well, that and the fact that we practically grew up down the street from each other and never actually met until after college. :P

On a healthy eating related note,... I've been really craving Chinese and Korean food lately... More specifically, dim sum and oyster sauce chicken with cake noodles. I blame Mark, though since he spent the entire morning talking about a great Cantonese buffet that he went to with his parents when I was on one of my trips... And everyone knows that aside from Korean and Japanese food, the one kind of food I can't resist is Chinese... *SIGH*

Finally, Kevin was nice enough to send over a postcard for his upcoming cabaret. I'm so sad that I'll be missing it, it looks like it'll be fabulous!! If any of you are in the LA area, please support him!

Hope you all have a wonderful Sunday!! I'm off to get some much needed sleep! *HUGS*

Mmm dim sum... there needs to be more foods that bring carts of goodies to you.

I have to agree - dim sum is one of my biggest diet weaknesses!

I'd go to Kevin's thing, but it's my daughter's birthday and we always take her to her choice of restaurant... and I doubt she would choose here with her food allergies.

But do wish him luck for us.

Thank you, Daniel, I will definitely pass along your good wishes to him. :)

Are you and your family/friends okay?
I just heard that there was a big earthquake in Hawaii. I hope you are okay. I'm thinking of you and your family!

Re: Are you and your family/friends okay?
We're fine! Thanks so much for your comment! We were a little shaken up and powerless for most of the day, but thank goodness that none of our family or friends were hurt. Thanks so much for your message!! *HUGS*

Then I think you'd enjoy Korean fodd since it's very spicy!! :) With my sensitive stomach, I really can't do spicy food all that much, but I do love Korean food (on the mild side) :) I've only eaten Thai food once or twice, but it's generally more on the spicy side too and I have to really watch what I order. :P I LOVE vietnamese food, though... Pho - SO yummy!! :)

And Kevin's cabaret looks SO wonderful, I really wish I could go!! :(

It sounds like you're having a nice weekend. I read there was a huge earthquake in Hawaii this morning too. I hope you guys are okay... we're thinking of you.

Thank you SO much for your message, Laura!! Thankfully it seems that all of our family and friends are okay as well - some are still without power, though. Thanks so much again for your good thoughts and concern!! Big *HUGS* to you!!

Thanks so much, Karen!! It would be so lovely to see his show!! I really miss seeing him sing - it's been a bit to long since I've been treated to a Kevin show and frankly, I'm going through Kevin singing withdrawals. ;)

I've been meaning to add the first season of Queer as Folk to my Netflix list, I think I'll have to bump it up to the top of my list.

It's such a wonderful show (if you can get past the explicit nature of the first couple of episodes) - the acting is just incredible and I love the characters and storylines... I'm SOOO hooked on it!!
