Just got back from a friend's wedding...  
...I absolutely love weddings and this one was especially beautiful. My friend had been unhappy for so long (in a previous bad relationship) and it was just so wonderful to see her so happy and so in love, I was getting rather weepy...

Also, since I'm once again battling insomnia (must be the darn humidity here!) I stole this from sabine10 -

Do you like having your picture taken?
No! That's usually why I like to be the one taking them... :)

If you could go anywhere in the world where would you go and why?
I have to say that I'd love to go back to NYC and see more shows and of course, LA. :)

Have you ever done crossword puzzles?
All the time! They're the best way to spend my lunch hour and a great way to keep busy during long plane rides.

Pick up the closest book and write a sentence at random from it:
"Whatever your reasons for proposing, there's a lot riding on this wedding." - Bill Russell / Henry Krieger "Side Show" (the only book I had beside my desk)

Do the same with a lyric from either a cd or the radio:
"Some hidden magnet is pulling me back, back to this strange little show" - "Side Show" again...which is almost always in my CD player.

Have you ever tried to analyze your own dreams?
Yes, but I'm lousey at it.

Can you sing?
No, that's why I'm so amazed by people who can and who do it well (i.e. Kevin!).

Do you ever sing to yourself while doing everyday tasks?
Driving to work, if my windows are up and I'm pretty sure no one can hear. :)

What's your favorite color of post-it note?
They come in different colors? JK, plain ole' yellow works for me. :)

Have you ever lied to get off the phone or out of talking to someone online?
I've never lied, but I have had trouble getting off the phone or IM with a few people and I never know how to tackfully tell them I have to go.

Is your vcr flashing 12:00 all the time?
My broken one is. :)

Have you ever said 'lol' in real life without thinking about it?
LOL, no! Just kidding...no I haven't...really. :)

What is the best present you've ever given someone else?

What is the best present someone else has ever given to you?
Hubby's given me the rest of his life which is the nicest gift I've gotten. :)

Wow, this is really morbid, but okay...let's see. "Sheri loved life, her friends and family...and theatre." JK, I don't know!

Describe the ideal superpower and what you would do if you had it.
These are pretty deep - I don't know. Probably the ability to have people see the goodness in others as well as within themselves.

Do you wear necklaces, bracelets, anklets, earrings, rings?
My engagement & wedding ring, a Hawaiian bracelet, and three earrings (yes, I hate symmetry!) :)

What's on your computer desk?
The monitor, a CD burner, bunch of pens that don't work ;), a few books of musicals, a few playbills from shows I saw recently, a couple of ticket stubs from the same shows, a few photos of Sydney & Mark, some of my friends, and a soap opera digest (HOW did that get there?) :)

Re: !!!!!!!!
Yup, it's the whole show. :) It's one of those Samuel French Books and I got it at the Broadway theatre shop right next to the Marriott Marquis in NY. I think you may be able to get it through amazon.com too, but I'm not too sure. :)

Re: !!!!!!!!
Ah, yes, those fabulous theatre stores that exist ONLY in NYC. I will have to check it out next time I am there. I will check Amazon too.

Thanks for the info! :o)
