Thank goodness for this heat, Sydney the dog,...  
...and my internal alarm clock this morning... For some strange reason I fell asleep last night without bothering to set my alarm - which almost never happens. Funny thing is, I have absolutely no idea which of the three was responsible for waking me up in time, but thankfully one of them did. :) (My money's on Sydney, though) ;)

Work was very unproductive today (what else is new this week?) :P and mainly all we did was eat. :P Aside from a cake that was brought in for a co-worker's birthday, we were treated to trays and trays of Pansit (Filipino noodles) from another co-worker. I think this is the reason I gained so much weight since I started working at the bank... There's always so much good food around and if you combine that with the zero exercise I get at work (the only thing I usually move is my mouth...) you get the 25 extra pounds I've added since I started. :( UGH

I actually have a non-internet related project this weekend, imagine that! I've decided to concentrate on finishing my NYC scrapbook once and for all! It's been about four months since our trip, and I kept meaning to work on it... but everytime I looked at the mass of scrapbooking things in the corner of my room all I could think of was... "LATER"... :P And I'll have to get that Kerry Butler photo back from Mark, who's probably been showing it proudly to everyone saying, "She hugged me!" :)

The Tony's are this weekend and I have to say - it just doesn't excite me the way it should. I'll still be watching it (in my LATE LATE time zone after everyone else in the free world knows who won...) but I'm mostly looking forward to seeing the performances - AND to seeing Dennis O'Hare win the Tony for "Take Me Out". :)

Just checked Amazon and it says that my "Parade" CD "is shipping soon." I'm guessing that's a good sign and a step up from yesterday when it only said "Item not yet shipped." I have to say that from the songs that I've heard (both from Kevin's concert and clips online) "Parade" is slowly becoming one of my favorite musicals... Although I'm doubting that anything could ever beat "Side Show", of course... And could someone please tell me why is it that all of my favorite shows were bombs at the box office and closed on Broadway after only a few months? It must tell you something about my taste. ;)

I can't wait to watch the Tony's, I'm definitely going to tape that. I just need to remind myself not to miss it. I need a Tivo. *LOL*

How come your Amazon order is taking a few days to say, shipped? I don't think I've waited that long?

I'll be taping it too. Somehow I was a bit more excited about it last year - I don't know if it was because I was rooting for Sutton so much - or... Maybe I'm bitter that they excluded Kerry Butler from the nominees - or because I'm not a huge Tammy Blanchard fan... (sorry - but I've seen when she wasn't the greatest actress in her GL days) :(

I'm not sure why the order is taking so long to ship - though all the items have said "ships within 24 hours"... I'll have to check the status today and see. I'm going through serious "Parade" withdrawals... :(

'Parade' is the best.
Sherishutterbug93 on June 7th, 2003 03:09 pm (UTC)
:) Agreed. :) I'd love to see it performed in LA - or any place I could easily get to.

My money's on Sydney, too. :)

If I read that from your work I think I should be glad that we only get some cookies or cake if somebody has got birthday. :)

I hope that you'll get your "Parade" CD soon.

Please, take care of yourself and have a nice weekend.

It probably was Sydney who woke me up - though when I looked at her all she did was look back at me innocently... but I know better. ;)

The food is way too excessive at my bank - it seems that's all we ever seem to do. :P And with a branch of over 50 people, the birthdays come around quite often!

Please have a nice weekend yourself! :)

Have fun scrapbooking. :)
Sherishutterbug93 on June 7th, 2003 03:14 pm (UTC)
Thanks. :) It's been such a long time since I've scrapbooked that it'll take me forever just finding everything I need. ;)

I just recently quit working as a security guard :P
and you would think that it would allow a person to loose weight with all the walking and all. But I actually gained some weight cause all I did was eat while walking around. LOL.
just letting you know I'm wit you.
Sherishutterbug93 on June 8th, 2003 01:32 am (UTC)

:) At least you got walk around. ;) The only walking I do is to and from the xerox and fax machines and back into my office. :P If we could just stop the birthday celebrations here, I think I'd be fine...or if we moved my xerox machine across the branch...... but let's not get too carried away ;)
