Okay, I don't normally post this many posts to the blog during the week---but several people have told me that I should share the news with all of you, so here it goes.
Much to my surprise, I have been nominated for a WATCH award for my performance as "Sally Brown" from Montgomery Playhouse's production of "You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown." I'm one of 6 nominees in the category of "Outstanding Featured Actress in a Musical."
For those of you who don't know, WATCH stands for Washington Area Theatre Community Honors. The award ceremony will be held in March (back home in Virginia), so unfortunately I won't be able to make it. But I have to say, I'm just so surprised and excited that I was nominated (that sounds so cliche).
Anyway, I guess that is reason enough to post!
I also wanted to let you all know about a great movie that Kev and I recently saw. It's called "Juno." It is both hilarious and heart-breaking at the same time. I'm not going to give the plot away, but it stars Jason Bateman, Jennifer Garner, and newcomer Ellen Page. Page plays the main character, a 16 year old teenager who finds herself pregnant.
The movie has great acting and really superb, quirky dialogue. So go out and see it if you haven't already. You'll be glad you did. :)
