So I don't do so well with change... :P  
...I converted my LJ settings back to the old one since I don't deal too well with technology change (it took months for Mark to convince me to upgrade my Photoshop) :P One day I may get adventurous and change it back to the new look, but for now, I like the comfort of the old design. ;)

I wanted to apologize if I've been bad about commenting recently. :( I haven't been able to get on the internet as much as I would've liked to due to my really weird sleep schedule the past few days. I actually fell asleep before 8pm last night which is usually pretty unheard of for me (but I've done it twice now in two weeks...) :P I think we'll all be glad when this bus strike is over, but unfortunately it doesn't look like it'll be coming to a resolution any time soon. :(

Been listening to "Assassins" a lot recently on my long drive to and from work. I've always loved the cast recording, but I think I've truly become addicted to it. It's got to be one of Sondheim's better works. AND Reprise! finally put up some info on their web site about it.(It's about darn time, I say...) What a stellar cast - it's going to be a fabulous show! :) I can't wait. :)

And I just realized that it's been exactly two years since the first time I saw Kevin on stage. It was the opening night of 1776 and Pat (gigglets) and I had no idea what we were in for. We were there to see Chad Brannon and only Chad - but during the second act, when Kevin sang "Molasses to Rum" - my heart literally stopped for a few moments and at the opening night party all I could think about was how incredible Kevin's performance was. Kevin actually walked past us that night to get some food off of a table that we were standing around. I remember being so in awe that I actually gasped out to Pat and Laura, "That's the guy who played Rutledge...he was amazing!" I think he heard me because he turned around but I was too speechless to say anything to him and just stood there looking at him like an idiot. He smiled at us and then walked back to the group that he was talking to. What a dork he must've thought I was! Luckily Pat & I saw him in several more shows that week and I eventually got the courage to speak coherently with him to tell him how wonderful I thought he was. And really - my life has never been the same since and it's all due, in part, to this day and the eventual creation and maintenance of his site. :)

Woah?? Kevin sang "Molasses to Rum" he gotta record that or put up a sample. I would looooooove to hear him sing that song. Ah, 1776...

I know? What is up with the talks on the Bus strike? At least I don't have to fight traffic, going/coming back from town.

Yup, he sang "Molasses to Rum" :) - which, I think may have been the greatest song I've ever heard him sing. And yes, he should record it - or he should at least sing it again. It's been two years and my mind is a little fuzzy on exactly HOW amazing he was. But, yeah - I LOVE 1776! :)

You're lucky you don't have to fight traffic! :) If I could transfer to closer branch, I would. But Kapiolani is the big banking center that my boss wanted - and I follow him wherever he goes.

I just love that song and Cool Considerate Men. Actually I like all the songs from 1776. You should mention it to him, when he makes a cd. I would just love to hear it.

I know, I couldn't stand it, cause it's crazy.

Btw, did you see a huge spotlight in Waikele Shopping Center? I couldn't see what was going on over there, but I saw a huge beam of light coming from that area? I could kinda see it from passing over the highway.

I didn't see the spotlight, but I know that CompUSA had their huge 6 hour sale last night so I bet that's what it was for (6pm-12pm). I was supposed to meet Mark there because I was looking for a new scanner - but he got there early, looked around and told me it was too crowded there and that I shouldn't bother because none of the scanners were on sale. I think that's the spotlight you might have seen.

Wow, that must have been it. I saw it from the H2 and then go to Kame Hwy and could see it. No wonder, cause it looked liked it awas coming from there.

Re: are you online Sheri?
UGH - I just saw this now and I'm still at work... :( I'm sorry Joy... I don't have your email address here and I've been looking for it for a while... :( Email me anyway - shutterbug93@hawaii.rr.com Sorry... :( BTW, how was Sneaux!?

hiya
Hi Sheri - No big deal...Thanks for the email addy =) Sneaux was hilarious, IMO...I didn't particularly like the "pelvic exam" but the nurse chorus was rather funny and I didn't particularly like the numerous uses of the F ward...I guess I'm just not that big on that word...Oh well...But the acting (esp. Sneaux, Larry/Bob, Sissy/Darla, Birdie/Poppy, and Carl/Madame) was great...So I guess it was worth the money.

What exactly didn't you like about the show?

Re: hiya
I didn't care too much for the vulgarity, I guess. I didn't really find the main character getting raped by her father then having a mis-carriage on the ice really that amusing. :( But I'm glad that you enjoyed the show. :) Some of the performances were pretty good - though. And I was curious to see it.

Re: hiya
yeah that particular part of the storyline (like i said) wasn't very funny...seemed a bit over the top in my mind.

I don't really care for the new LJ look either.

I hope your sleep schedule gets back to the way that you like it. I have a hard time sleeping so I can sympathize. *hugs*

I'm actually finding it harder and harder to wake up now since the weather is getting cooler. I love to sleep in when it's cool, but when it's humid, I can't wait to get up. And insomnia... UGH... I've had an ongoing battle with it for years. :P Hope all is well with you. *hugs*
