Cooking, Sydney, TV shows, and my LA trip! :)  
I'll admit that I'm not the most domestic person in the world... in fact, I don't even come close... I used to do a lot of full scale cooking when we first moved into this house about 6 years ago, but Mark always came home late or he'd eaten a late lunch and wasn't hungry,... so eventually our house became a "fend-for-yourself" for dinner household. :P I'll cook once in a while, but it's getting to be a rare occurrence. :P Well, surprisingly enough, I actually cooked today. :O I think Mark was more shocked than anyone. :)

And I think Sydney's discovered a way to let us know that she wants more attention. :) It was adorable, but I was scratching her today behind the ears and when I stopped, she pawed at my hand as if to tell me to continue. So I did, and when I put my hand down again, she pawed at it again. :) Gotta love my dog, at least she knows how to make her wishes known and it seems she's got us trained really well. ;)

Spent more time than usual this weekend watching TV... I rarely (if ever) have the TV on but I happened to flip the station and caught "Queer Eye for the Straight Guy" on Bravo. Interesting show! I'd heard all my friends talk about it, but it was interesting to finally see it for myself. I think I might actually have to tune in on Tuesday nights now. :) I also watched a few episodes of "Trading Spaces" and I have to say that show can be very addicting too... I think I watched more TV this weekend than I did all of the past 3 months combined. :P

Found some really great publicity stills of Julie Ann from "Line of Fire" - the only problem was that it was from an ABC press site and when I clicked on it to preview the larger image it required a username and password. :P So all I had access to was the crappy little 89 x 110 pixel image that I can do absolutely nothing with. :P Julie did say that she'd try to send over some publicity shots if she could... but that was before Dave's site was in the picture, so we shall see...

I leave for LA on Friday! :) I'm SO happy! It's been way too long since I've traveled that I hope I remember my way around... :P I printed out all of my Yahoo maps and have semi - packed my bags,...all I really need to do is some major laundry before I leave AND figure out what to see for Sunday's matinee on the 24th. I was torn between "Bees In Honey Drown" at Pasadena Playhouse, "Sneaux!" at the Matrix (where I saw Misty in "Anyone Can Whistle"), and I guess because of its bad reviews "Harvey" at Laguna Playhouse is out. :P I had wanted to see "Songs For A New World" but that ended last weekend. :( I'm still seeing "Toys In the Attic" at the Colony on Sunday night, but I need to make the most of my LA time and see a matinee! :)

I don't cook period. So just be happy that you can hehe. :P

Sydney sounds so very adorable. Not to mention smart!!! I would love to see that. :)

Maybe I should've re-phrased that as "I try to cook." ;) But really, I'm not domestic and I'm just happy that Mark doesn't expect me to be... I have vowed to be better about things though! :)

Sydney's too funny. After I posted the entry she did it several more times - the pawing me for more attention - in fact she didn't stop doing it until I got up and went to the living room. Sydney is nothing if not one-track-minded (kinda like me sometimes) ;).

Hope you had a great first day of classes! :)

I love 'City of Angels'.

You always listen to the best stuff.

It's a great show! :) Though, oddly enough I never fully appreciated the cast recording until I saw it staged. But once I saw it, I couldn't stop listening to it. :)

Have fun!
Have a great time in LA! I'm out on a one day (though TRYING to push it to a two day!) trip to NYC on Tuesday. Sydney sounds adorable! Try the "guessing game" with her with treats... with my dog Jake, we put a treat in one hand, put our hands behind our back, switch hands and tell him to pick a hand, and he's learned to put his paw on the hand he thinks it is! It's SO cute. Usually he can tell by the smell, but sometimes we can trick him. ;o)

Re: Have fun!
Thanks, Lauren! :) You're going to NYC again? How I envy those of you on the East Coast! Are you seeing anything while you're up there or are you just going on business? And I have to say that Jake sounds adorable! Sorry to hear about his recent haircut! :(

Re: Have fun!
Thanks! I'm actually going tomorrow to meet up with some Millie friends, and we're going to go to the Gypsy CD signing and to see Millie (of course! :-p) and I might stay over till Wednesday to do a TheatreworksUSA audition and see my friend's show at the Fringe Festival. And Jake's fur is starting to grow back! :-p

Re: Have fun!
Lucky girl! :) All I want is to be able to see Sutton as Millie one more time - but - you know how that goes... Money and work, work and money - not enough of one and too much of the other. :P Have fun and I look forward to reading your recaps! :)

Sydney really is a smart dog. :) I wish I could see it. Mostly, Lauser tries to hypnotize me if he would like to get something (I can feel it ;). If I ignore him he starts so little, soft sighs and then - you are right, we are trained really well. :)

I never liked to cook. I remember that I once tried to cook a beef soup. Well, I forgot to look after the water and in the end it was more a very dark roast beef than everything else. I tried it not again. :)

I wish you a great time in LA. :)

Ah dogs are so wonderful! And they have us trained oh-so-well! :) Lauser's good with hypnosis? ;) I'm sure all he has to do is look at you with his cute little face and you melt, I know I would. :)
