Mark was pretty ecstatic today...  
...since he received his new camera/cell phone in the mail. :) He spent the better portion of tonight reading the manual and deciding on a ring tone. :) He and I are complete opposites... I hate reading directions and I won't follow recipes, whereas he HAS to read directions to everything before he uses it. He'll read through MY instruction manuals for my MD players, video cameras, etc when I first get them and he won't cook anything without following the recipe exactly - and I usually just wing it... :P Sometimes I think the reason we're married is to balance out each other's extreme habits. :)

And, Yay! :) - I got an email from Julie who told me that Kevin finally gave her the baby gift that I left with him in May to deliver to her. :) I know Kevin is extremely busy and it was so nice of him to agree to deliver it for me... but I was worried that Becket might celebrate his first birthday before getting it. ;) JK, of course! I totally appreciate Kevin delivering it for me despite his busy schedule. :)

In other news: I bid on some tickets to Diamond Head Theatre's 2003 - 2004 season at Curves' silent auction today. I only had $454 Curves bucks (little monopoly-like money they give us as incentives for guessing trivia and solving word scrambles while we're working out...) and some women were coming in with thousands of them... :O I'll find out tomorrow if I won it, but I highly doubt it with the little money that I had to bid. :(

On a theatre note: there was a great article in Playbill online about "Big River" since it opens for previews on July 1st. I don't know how many times I've kicked myself for NOT seeing it while it was in LA (I can never do things the easy way...) ;) But it doesn't look like I'll be in NY in time to see it.. :( Aside from hearing wonderful things about it, I wanted to see Rod perform again. :(

I think it's cool that you and Mark balance each other. :) I hope you get what you bid on. :)

I think that's why we get along so well... :) There are so many ways that we're complete opposites - but I think that's good - he really does balance me out. :) And thanks for the nice wishes for the silent auction. :) Hope all is well with you and that your parents had a nice anniversary. :)

Big River
The Big River revival sounds interesting!! I like how they're doing the whole deaf actor thing with another actor speaking/singing. It's different...but should be a good show. I probably won't see it because I have no $$ and it'll probably close before I get $$ lol...but it does sound good. Hope you win something ya bid on !! :)

Re: Big River
I've seriously been thinking about a NY trip in September (around the Flea Market weekend), but like you - no $$ is the huge problem. :( No vacation is another problem too. :( But, *sigh*...it would be nice. :) And thanks for the luck with the auction, I'm going to need it. ;) Take care! :)

I hate reading directions and I won't follow recipes

I also hate reading directions but because I can't cook very well I always need to follow a recipe. :)

Hope it's not too late but I'll cross my fingers that you will win some tickets.

Take care.

I can't cook either and I improvise a lot (a very scary combination!) :) I do know you can bake, though ;)

And thanks so much for the luck, Sabine! You're such a sweetie! :) Please take care too! :)

HA! WHat kind of a man is your husband!!! Doesn't he know that
"REAL MEN DON'T NEED INSTRUCTIONS"??? LOL I am laughing because I am like your husband, and Dave never reads the instructions to
ANYTHING--only as a last resort! Although, when it comes to cooking, I do make up my own, because I know what I like! It is
just a big joke around here with Dave don't reading instructions.
He always told me that it was a "Male thing." How is the phone working by the way???

LMBO, Barb! :D I'm exactly like your husband - I NEVER read instructions! :) Our gender roles in our family must be switched! :D And the phone is great! Mark is just getting used to the new ring and has stopped looking around at everyone else when HIS phone is ringing. :D Take care! :)
