Aside from other things I may say about my job...  
...I work with the best people around!

On Monday they bought Thai food from Souvaly (my favorite place and my favorite kind of food) to help me celebrate my birthday. :) My friend Jillian was also sweet enough to get me a Rainbow Cake. It was so pretty, I almost didn't want to eat it... but, you know... I did. I can't resist cake. ;)

It was a three layer cake with a yellow, pink, and green layer which tasted like lilikoi, guava, and lime.
SOOO good and very light and refreshing! :)

Spent the day today waiting at home for the plumber. We returned home from work yesterday to find our gargage flooded! One of the pipes that lead to the spigot outside our garage had sprung and leak and was spraying water everywhere! :P We called a plumber to come by last night, but he didn't have the correct parts, so he basically looked at our situation, turned off the water to our house, and informed us that he needed to come back... Oh, and he charged us $150 for that visit. :P

He came back at 2pm this afternoon and thankfully was able to fix it. :P Don't want to see what our water bill is next month though,... since we have no idea how long the water was gushing into our garage. :P We have suspicions that as our neighbors were wheeling in their HUGE basketball net / rim set up, they might have hit our spigot outside by accident causing the crack in the pipe. We know that they wheeled it in that afternoon and we do see a bit of an impact on the spigot itself... but oh well... If that did happen, it was an accident and can't be helped.

In theatre traveling news, please don't think I'm insane, but there is another trip to LA coming up over the v-day weekend. It was sort of pre-planned... Late last year I purchased a mini- subscription to MTW for three shows (RENT - which I couldn't see due to work, Sweeney, and 1776) and so most of my LA trips this year were pre-planned without me really being able to change the dates...

It's okay, though because I'd been looking forward to seeing Sweeney ever since I heard Michelle Duffy was cast in it... Also, I'm taking the opportunity to see Daniel Tatar in "Spelling Bee" at La Mirada Theatre AND Duncan Sheik's new musical, "Whisper House" and "Lost in Yonkers" (I LOVE Neil Simon!!) at The Old Globe on Sunday. So it should be a nice trip. :)

Finally, I stole this meme from njzynj

Of course, if you didn't want to drive, you could see Lost in Yonkers at REP East in Newhall. I'll note that Saturday Night (2/13) we're seeing Andrews Brothers in Thousand Oaks.

Oh, that should be great - have you seen Andrews' Brothers yet? It's a cute show. :) And didn't know about Lost In Yonkers at REP East, but since I'll be in San Diego seeing Whisper House, I thought I'd just stay to see it. Plus, I want to see what the newly renovated theatre-in-the-round looks like there. :)

Hmmm, don't remember last weekend's review of it :-). No, we haven't seen Andrews Brothers yet. I also just booked Dirty Rotten Scoundrels at Interact Theatre Company (No Ho arts center). Every time in the past I've tried to see it, it was either too expensive or the dates didn't work. Whisper House has good music.

By the way, I just got the CD for Story of My Life. Quite good. I'm keeping an eye out on Goldstar and LAStageTix.
Sheri: Bets - as Hildy in On The Townshutterbug93 on February 4th, 2010 03:59 am (UTC)
Haha!! I meant at any of its other venues (e.g. Fullerton, Welk Resort, etc.) :) It's basically the same production (minus Bets). It's cute, though and the film reel is worth a see (begins about 15 minutes before curtain, I believe...) :)

Wanted to see DRS at NoHo, but opted for the drive to Old Globe instead... And I'm keeping an eye out for disc for Story of My Life too. :)

Oh yeah... Ooops... I did see last weekend's review. Sorry! Didn't realize it was still playing when I'm there. But I did really want to see the new theatre-in-the-round at Old Globe. :D

Sorry to hear about the flooded garage. :( Over here it's expensive if you need a manual worker, especially if it's not within working hours (8:00 am - 4:00 pm). I think we had paid the same money. I'm glad he could fix everything!

And the cake simply looks delicious. Could you send a piece of it, please? ;)

Hope you are having a nice day, Sheri! Big hugs to you! :)
Sheri: Cooper pupshutterbug93 on February 6th, 2010 04:32 am (UTC)
Thanks so much!! I'm just glad we have everything fixed right now... :) Not looking forward to seeing our water bill this month, though... :P

And I do believe that this was the cake that Micki was sniffing out in the snow! :D The cake was delicious! :)

Big hugs and much love to you, Sabine!! ♥
