Cooper was a very good "stay home from work" buddy and stayed by my side all day (I think it might've had something to do with the fact that he wanted to eat the plastic things off my earphones attached to my laptop... but I choose to think he was being a good companion) :)
The headache is much better now... not sure what I did, took a bunch of advil, drank a ton of water, and slept a bunch... in any case, I'm feeling a lot more human now. :)
Speaking of Coopie, I watched something on TV once that said you could determine the intelligence of your dog by doing a "towel test" You throw a towel over their head and the faster they get out from under it, the more intelligent they were. Well, I tried it this evening with Cooper with a small, soft blanket... and he sat down and went to sleep! Ha! So much for the intelligence of my puppy! ;D It's okay, though... at least he's cute. ;)
And SO happy and excited that my fall NY trip is coming together!! Scheduled most of the shows I'm seeing, people I want to meet up with, and places I want to eat. :) There are SO many new shows opening that I'm excited to see - not the least of which is "A Life in The Theatre" and "Pitmen Painters". I'm so sad that "Unchain My Heart" was postponed until Spring, but it gives me something to look forward to next April. :)
And finally, thanks to cahwyguy, I was able to hear the WONDERFUL interview that Doug Hodge did for The American Theatre Wing... His passion for the written word and for his craft is so... attractive. There's no other way to say it... the fact that he gave up TV and movie roles in favor of honing his craft at small regional theatres (and living off of corn flakes) while all of his friends were in movies & driving nice cars is just SO admirable. Truly, the more I hear about the man and how seriously he takes his craft, the more impressed I am.
