I suppose the upside...  
...to all my recent work stress is that I lost nearly ten pounds throughout the entire process. Not that it's GOOD weight loss, but at this point, I'll take what I can get. :)

With Kevin M's site completed and a couple of others halted due to waiting for headshots, and content, I have been in a bit of a web design lull. I do have to admit that I miss receiving emails from Kevin now that his site is complete. :( It was an odd thing, while I never knew him BEFORE I did his site, and I can't say that I really know him now... for the three weeks or so that I was intensively working on his site, I felt that I did - somewhat... I can't explain it other than I felt that we had a really great working relationship and now that it's semi-over (though it really isn't since I'll be doing updates and such...) it's, admittedly, a little sad.

Mark & I went to see "Flower Drum Song" at our local Diamond Head Theatre on Thursday night (our regular subscription seats). We were surprised and amazed at the production - which was really one of the best that we've seen there so far. The Linda Low - Kathryn Mariko Lee - was excellent and gave Linda an edge, but still kept her quite sympathetic. The highlight of the show for me, was seeing an actor by the name of Kenji Higashihama as Harvard. Not only did his smile light up the stage, but he was effectively able to steal EVERY scene he was in. I'm definitely looking forward to seeing him in other productions!

In fact, I liked the show so much that I bought tickets to take my Mom back in a few weeks when Mark is in Japan... I thought I'd do the "Mothers' Day" thing a little early and take her shopping at Nordstrom (our NEW and very first Nordstrom on the island - see how deprived we've been?) and then for a nice dinner and then the show. Should be fun and a nice way to spend the evening. :)

And I don't know if I mentioned this here or not, but Mark is leaving for Japan with his family on Tuesday for two weeks. I'm sadly never able to go on these trips because it always falls within the midst of tax season. I'm definitely going to miss him while he's gone, but I'm happy that he has such a great opportunity to travel with his family. :)
Current Mood: okaymore upbeat than before...

I'm SO excited for him!! It should be a wonderful trip for him and a great chance to spend quality time with his family. :) I just asked that he bring me back some arare. :) :)

Ok, so you'll have to tell me, What is Arare? Where in Japan is he going?

I just wanted this great show on Tokyo, Japan. It was about the living spaces and how houses are so small and how they store everything and what. It was really cool!

Arare is a rice cracker. I love them - especially the authentic-from-Japan ones. :) He's going on a tour so they'll be going all around - I believe he'll be in Hokkaido and Osaka.

I'm really excited for him! :) I'll just miss him when he's gone. :(

OH wow! That will be so fun for him! My husband wants to go to Japan SO BAD! He was a bit jealous when I told him your husband was going. :)

I'm glad that you and Mark had a nice time. :) Your plans for the early "Mother's Day" sound really good to me. Is Nordstrom something special? I never heard about it. Hope you had a nice weekend. Big hugs to you and, please, tell Mark that I wish him a wonderful time in Japan!

We had a great time at the show. :) It was one of the better local productions that we saw - we were pleasantly surprised. :) I think my Mom will enjoy the show too. :)

And Nordstrom is a store chain that we just got in Hawaii. I used to shop at Nordstrom when I was in Santa Barbara and never thought it was a big deal. But here in Hawaii because we've never had one, it seems to be a big deal now that it's open. :)

I will definitely pass along your good trip wishes to Mark. :) Thanks so much!! Big HUGS to you!!

Thank you so much!
I don't have an account here so I can't give you any proof as to my identity, but I'm Kathryn Lee, the Linda Low in DHT's Flower Drum Song. I just stumbled upon this entry of yours and I'm so thrilled that you enjoyed the show! Especially enough to bring your mom as a Mother's Day gift. We all worked very hard to put this show together and it's wonderful to hear all the positive word of mouth. And yes, I tease Kenji a lot about stealing the spotlight with his ridiculously awesome comedic timing. I'll tell him that you enjoyed it. If you want, when you come again with your mom, come see us in the back of the theater. We'd love to thank you for such wonderful comments in person. Well, gotta run. Again, thank you so much for your positive "review." ~ Kathryn

Re: Thank you so much!
Thanks so much for your comment! I really enjoyed the show - I really think it's one of the best productions I've seen at Diamond Head Theatre. :) The performances, choreography, staging, everything was wonderful - I think my Mom will really enjoy it. :) And I'm coming back to see it with her on April 12th. :) Thanks again for your comment and I look forward to seeing the show again! :)
