Right now...  
...Sydney seems to be having a barking competition with a really small, scruffy dog walking around outside. It's just the excuse I needed for a study break. :)

The hot and humid weather has returned to the islands. After about a month of lovely "stay in and study" weather, we're back to the humid weather that's more fitting for this time of year. :P The cold weather was a welcome change and was great while it lasted. :)

Sydney doesn't seem to mind but will rush and stand inside the refrigerator whenever we open it (and won't get out!) and is back to hogging the air from all the fans like she did last summer.

A photo I posted of Sydney in her usual position, blocking the fan last summer.

Mark & I went back to eat at Ruby Tuesday again today and got the same waitress as we did last weekend! It was a little embarrassing when she recognized us. "We love return customers," she told us - but she probably must've been thinking that we were nuts for going there two weekends in a row. ;) And yes, we finally tried the dessert this time and it was worth going back for! :)

I finally set up my new CD drive (those of you who have been reading my journal remember how the one that came with my computer crapped out on me a few months after I bought it...) I found some really old photos I had on several CDs and made icons with a few of them, including the Nick one above. ;)

Speaking of Nick - "1776" opens next weekend at Performance Riverside! :) I really wish I could be there to see it since Nick is my favorite director of all time (and it's one of my all time favorite musicals). I'm sure whoever is playing Rutledge will be outstanding, but I was so tickled when Nick told me that he had initially hoped Kevin would reprise the role for him. :)

Oh well, I'd better get back to the books! :P

I hate it also when the waiter/ess starts to "know" us at restaurants. It is like that at Chevy's now. I get so embarrassed when they know us, and what our "usual" order consists of.

I love the picture of Sydney by the fan... too funny!

We don't have a Chevy's here! :( If we did, we'd probably be over there a lot too. ;)

And Sydney's so funny, she loves the fan for some reason - if it oscillates, she'll follow it back and forth. :D

Okay, as a former Ruby Tuesday waitress, I must say it is the BEST when you recognize someone. We like it. We think it's great and that it means we must have done something right. The only time recognizing someone is bad is if you are a HORRIBLE tipper and all the servers know it. Don't be that customer. :)

Oh, I won't be that customer! ;) We always try to tip well, especially for really good, friendly service (like that waitress at Ruby Tuesday) :)

I think it's really cute that your waitress remembered you! Tom and I go through "kicks" of being on a certain restaurant like that, too.

That picture of Sydney is adorable. :)

Thanks, Amanda. :) Sydney's such a ham! :D

I think we're done with Ruby Tuesday for a while... Maybe we'll start going back to Ronnie's :). I think we're on the "I wish there was an Applebee's here" kick lately. ;)

It's humid here in town side too. It's not so much the humidity that bothers me, but when it gets like this, especially after long rains the termites start swarming. And I hate flying termites much more than flying roaches!

Hey, how are the prices at Ruby's? I've only heard good things about that place. *sigh* I've got to check it out during the summer when I have time, and I also still haven't gone to Cheesecake Factory!

Yikes! At my Mom's house in Pearl City, she has a lot of flying ant (HUGE, disgusting ones!) that come out when it's humid. It's really awful because sometimes they'll fly directly at you! :P Blech!

The prices at Ruby Tuesday are pretty reasonable. It's kind of in the price range of Chilis or Applebees. The salad bar there is really good - and the ribs (I've heard) are very good. :) And you must go to the Cheesecake Factory! :) The line is usually really long, but I'm so glad that they finally opened one here! :)

Humid weather yuck! I'm sorry. I hope you all stay cool enough.

I remember that post about Sydney. Looking at that picture again, she looks so adult. So cute and so smart. :)

Humid weather stinks! :( I think this tax return season Mark and I should seriously think about an AC. :)

Thanks for your nice comments about Sydney. :) When I looked at the photo, I didn't realize how much weight she'd lost when she was sick. She was a little heavier in that photo than she is now, but still very much the same rascal little doggie. ;)

One more thing...I just went to your Kevin site. It's great as usual. :) Anyway I clicked on the "brother" site and well...I was very disappointed. Not professional really. I really shouldn't judge it, but why isn't your page the "official" page instead? BTW, when I first went to the "brother" site I thought he used flames as a background. When the page wasn't as cluttered, I realized that it's supposed to be a "stage w/closed curtains." That's not good... :(

Keep up the good work Sheri. :) I'll always be a fan of your work. :D *hugs*

Thanks for visiting my Kevin site, Carrie! :) And thanks for your kind words about it, it really means a lot to me! :) I haven't done much work on Kevin's site recently (bad Sheri!), but once my exam is over I'm planning on cleaning it up a little. :)

Thanks so much again, Carrie! I think your comment made my morning! :) *HUGS*

Haha! Looks like we'll have many, MANY humid summer days ahead where we'll be seeing this. :P

LOL! That picture of Sydney is so cute! :) Brock does a similar thing, he lays in front of the fan.
Sheri: Sydney - happyshutterbug93 on March 28th, 2004 09:26 pm (UTC)
Heehee... she's a silly dog! :) So cute that Brock does the same thing - they must like the wind on their faces. :)
