…my show opens.

And if that isn’t enough to make me want to yak, I’ve been fighting the dreaded sick headache this morning. What is up with that? I only have rehearsals till 8:30 tonight.

Isn’t it funny how a having a headache makes it easier to complain about things not even headache-related? Hmm.

OK, here’s a task for today (speaking of non sequitur). Add to this list:

Agreed, Adam! What a thrill that was, yes? And I would most definitely list NYC as a vacation destination (but you’re right – I’d never DRIVE there!).

I’m 2 for 3 – Niagara shouldn’t be too hard!

Another one that some people put on their lists: Great Wall of China

I really would love to see that someday — I hear tell that people even camp out on it. Alas, I never been to China. But I kinda like the music.
