Last Night's Feature

I received this DVD from my queue back the first of November. Things got busy with work and rehearsals, not to mention Christmas, and it still remained unopened on the desk. Not needing to worrying about going to work today, I asked Sam if he wanted to watch it with me late last night.

Two hours and five minutes. 2 hours and 5 minutes of complete drek. I just don't get why this movie was such the rage when it came out. Everyone I knew was encouraging each other to go see the movie. "It's hilarious!" they all said.

Hilarious? Uh, no. Not even close. It was absolutely ridiculous, tiringly awkward and astoundingly annoying. And Jon Hamm was just, ugh, filthy. The only redeeming part of the entire movie were the scenes with Officer Rhodes.

Sam said it best, "Unfortunately I can't unsee this movie."

I'm a VIP Customer!

From: Brittany
To: Cheryl Ann
Sent: Thu, Dec 13, 2012 8:24 pm
Subject: Sabika - January - 1/2 Off Special!

Hello everyone!

I wanted to let you know that January is Sabika's VIP month. VIP Customer Benefits allow you to buy at least one full price item of $69 or more from Fall/Winter or Classics catalogs, and you will be eligible for up to 5 additional Fall/Winter catalog items at 50% off!
  1. Limit of one per article number for "Fun Chokers", "Manhattan Chokers" or "London Chokers" per order.
  2. 50% only includes the Fall/Winter Catalog (not Classics)
  3. Special applies while supplies last

I plan to submit an order on January 1 in order to secure as many items as possible before they sell out. If you would like to purchase some of the 1/2 price items please e-mail me your 'wishlist' early. I will not collect payment until after the order is placed. This is a great deal and a wonderful time to stock up on gifts for 2013!
Because I absolutely love my AB and Crystal Fun bracelets, I ordered the Celebrations Fun choker (d).

I love the whole Glamazon tray, but I didn't want to order it all, especially with it being Christmas. Instead I settled for the Glamazon 2-Stone Drop earrings (f).

I offered my 4 other items at 50% off to my co-workers and they did take advantage of the deal. Now we just have to wait and see if what we ordered will be available.

Public Dedication to Sam

The last 6 months have been a journey for sure. Through a few tears and some outside help, I learned to let go and to fully embrace. I wanted to let my world know of my committment and the perfect way was through a dedication in my Sordid Lives bio.
I took a picture and texted it to Sam. The flash may make the bio difficult to read. Here's what it says:
Cheryl Ann Roberts (Latrelle Williamson) is absolutely thrilled to return to the Theatre Alliance stage and reprise one of her favorite roles. She last appeared here as Willadean in the poignant "The Trials and Tribulations of a Trailer Trash Housewife." Cheryl Ann has appeared with Open Space Café Theatre, the Paramount Acting Company, CTG, Kernersville Little Theatre, Twin City Stage, Stained Glass Playhouse, Clemmons Community Theatre, Davie Theatre Company, and Hickory Community Theatre. She's also done commercial and voice-over work. Cheryl Ann would like to thank her family and friends for their endless love and support. She dedicates her performance to her grandfather (who always watches from the best seat in the house) and to her son, Sam.
Sam immediately responded:

Kindle Woes

I really do like my Kindle Fire. But sometimes it's a problem too.

You see, I've got several books on hold via the brick-and-mortar library and several on hold via the NC digital library. Two hardcovers came in 2 weeks ago: Tiger Lily and Baby Proof. With the show I could only finish Tiger Lily, which I just did Monday night. My plan was to renew Baby Proof. But, Monday afternoon, I get an email from the NC digital library that e-book Titan's Curse is ready. (It's the third Percy Jackson book. I am reading this series in an attempt to get Cade interested.) No problem. I knew I had 14 days to read the e-book, so I still planned on renewing Baby Proof, as I knew both would be fairly easy reads.


Yesterday I get an email from the brick-and-mortar library that The Casual Vacancy (by Harry Potter's author) is ready. Since that's an extremely popular book with a lengthy waiting list, I decided I'd return Baby Proof and get The Casual Vacancy. I knew I could quickly read Titan's Curse in 2 days and then I'd
have 12 days to read The Casual Vacancy before it came due. You'd think that'd be it, right?


This morning I get an email that Sugar Rush, another e-book I had on hold, has become available. So I downloaded that.

If you are keeping count, I've got Titan's Curse, The Casual Vacancy and Sugar Rush to read. Two e-books and one book book. All within 14 days.

Guess what I'm doing this weekend?
