Very Late

This entry, that is. I have a good excuse.

Well, that’s it.

Today I fixed my car air conditioning.  And my brakes.  And I tried to fix the side view mirror.  What I’m basically saying is that this update is so damn late because I’ve just spent the past six hours in various car-fixing places.  Six hours.  So, I’m sweaty and gross but my car is running oh-so-much better.  That’s my Birthday Week gift to my car.  There may be a surprise weekend Birthday Week bonus entry concerning my day of grease and sweat, so stay tuned.

day two

tae-bo, mail and trivia

This morning as I was waking from my hazy sleep I felt Eric lean over to give me a kiss goodbye.  I wiggled my head out from my pillow.

Sweet Pea?


What am I getting for birthday week?

Oh, sweetie–

(I reached up, put my hand to his face, and pushed him away.)

Go to work.  Go make Mommy some money so she can buy her sauce and watch her stories.

random thoughts

because my brain is a little scattered today

I’ve been wearing my hair down a bit lately, hoping to get sick  of its length.  So, today I’m wearing a headband.  I like this headband a lot, but it’s too tight for my head.  So, right now I’m starting to get a headache.  But will I take the headband off?  Probably not.  Then I’ll have that band across my head that shows that I was wearing a headband.

so many days, so few are for birthday week

Ooh.  I’m tired today.

You know how some evenings you’re going along, doing your thing and some friends come over and you are all hanging out and having a good time and then suddenly you say to yourself, “Wait a minute!  It’s Monday night!  What am I doing?  This isn’t the weekend?  Oh, why are all of my friends bartenders and waiters?  They don’t have to wake up until after noon tomorrow.  This isn’t fair.  It’s so depressing I’m gonna have to have another beer.”

why my toes are lolita red

Friday afternoon my copy of City Hunter: The Motion Picture arrived.  After the shows we went back to my house for the World Premiere.  It was so strange hearing my voice.  Sometimes it sounded like me, and other times I was like, “What the hell was I doing there?”  I was really nervous, because if it sucked, I had suckered a bunch of my friends into sitting around watching it.  Fortunately everyone  had a good sense of humor and we all made jokes while it was going on.  They all agreed that my character kicks ass, and I think I got a couple of them to finally go audition for ADV Films.

i recap a thursday and admit i’m a freak

I talked to my friend Eleanor yesterday.  I hadn’t heard her actual voice since we met over a year ago.  My only way of keeping in touch with her since then was through her webpage, my webpage, and our e-mails.  It’s nice that we didn’t have to do any catch up, that we already knew what both of us were talking about.  We talked about her e-commerce idea.  I’m all for it.  I just hope she knows how to do everything, because I’ll be basically like, “So, what do I do next?  Okay, I’ll do that.  Then what?”

I’m a good sales person, but I don’t think I’m a good business woman.

just hand me a pacifier, already

I’m in that weird period right now just before everything happens.  In two weeks we have a show, and starting this weekend we work more intensely on it, so right now, I’m sort of mulling it through my head preparing the show order and how we’ll do this and that… oh yeah, I’m directing it.

the wall

or why i’m afraid of wallpaper

I got the part.  Starting August 1st I will be rehearsing for Polaroid Stories at Hyde Park Theatre, playing one Skinhead Girl.

We are going to have a “dialogue” about what my hair will look like.  So, for now, I’ll just keep wearing it long, hoping that I’ll get sick of its length in this heat by summer’s end.

i got burned

so i’m typing really slowly

Ow.  Ow.  Ow.

I am covered in sunburn.  That’s what happens when you try and fit a whole summer in a weekend.  It was a great weekend.  I had a lot of fun.  But today I’m covered in Aloe, and keep a bottle of aloe/lidocane next to my arm because my shoulders and chest keep screaming whenever I lean over to pick something up.
