Just when you think the light at the end of the tunnel is a train. : )
After a year of scrambling for work; desperately trying to raise my self-esteem as an actor, I was named a best-supporting actor by a local critic's blog for a show I did & I'm contracted back in theme park world!
(For you out there unaware of the import of THAT - well the largest 2 Equity theatres in my area closed last year & I had to leave the union to get theatre work. Also, no health benefits!)
I am planning on going to a doctor every single day I'm off this year to make up for it. I plan on getting prostate exams & pre-natal exams: no, I don't have a prostate or am planning to get pregnant, What's your point?

I do, however, feel very unhappy for so many of my fellow actors who lost their contracts during the annual purge. It sucks on a yearly basis.

Theme Park guests are on the LSD.
I'm just saying: 50 yr. old woman who decided to lift her leg above her head while on camera, middle-aged guy belly-dancing and a man introducing me to his wife's blastocyst.
Happy Holy-Hell days!
The special topping on the popcorn: brown acid.

So, good news! I just received the call that I am training into C.o.H.!
[Cue: "Another opening, another show.']
Bad news - still no benefits. :(
Good news - Universal called me to do a T2 shift.
Bad news - Couldn't do it. :(
Plus, as most people 'round here know, there was no point to going to the HP auditions since I have the wrong genitalia. I am not angry, just irritated. I have the only job that someone can say, 'We won't hire you for this role. You are the wrong: gender, race, weight, height, level of attractiveness and/or I don't like your face.'
Sucks, but hey, it was my decision to be an actor oh-so-very-many-years-ago.
Good news - I've decided to [Audio cue 2] 'Brush up my Shakespeare'.
Bad news - I'm the only one who cares. :(
Bad news - Look at the freakin' time - what the... I'm awake at WHAT time? :O

New Head Shots!
Got a new head shot done today. It is now officially the same colour as my hair, so I can stop threatening to use a marker to change my old one.
I'll get the pic tomorrow, so I'll wait to start picking myself apart until I see it.
Going to be doing NaNoWriMo this month, but can't write for the first five days due to rehearsal schedule; mine is more NaNoWri-almost-Mo.

Foetal Rocking starting in 1:48:17.
Who's got a special event tomorrow?
Who's stressing out about it?
Clue - the answer is the same for both.

Also, have to get off book for 'KPW' and gotta come up with mono for HP aud. My friend called me to tell me not to come in costume, as if I would. :/
*puts Ravenclaw tie away*
Plus headshots this weekend.
*looks in mirror*
Yep, my skin is not on board for that.
OTOH - CriMi drinking game!

Am not looking forward to harassing my bosses at job #4 about their audition notice, but REALLY?
'Cause you know, J.K. Rowling NEVER wrote gender equality into her books. /snark

lupinella's Halloween party:

Healthcare for All!
Anyone who doesn't believe health care should be universal should look at my four friends who've died within the last three years. Yes, one of them had health care, but three didn't... and died in their early forties. They all would've been seen by a doctor earlier if they could've afforded it. As for the one who had health care - she didn't get seen early enough due to cost. All of them worked steadily. None were on welfare or food stamps. The bullshit level of the dead and dying due to cost is a horrible commentary on our lack of empathy to our fellow man.

Current Mood: irate

Damnit all to Hell!
Have to go the second memorial service in about three months due to friends dying.
Everyone get WELL!

lemurs ate my homework
AND MY BRAIN... I miss my homework more.

Am playing the CriMi drinking game. Oh, Reid, you sexy bitch.

No, I am not the Frito Bandito. I just have to start working on my lines for my show, and (damnit!) I have to lose weight. Don't think a political prisoner held and tortured would be 'sturdy'.

An actor's life for me.
Quite looking forward to beginning rehearsing for my new show, 'Nine' tomorrow. It is one of a multi-part show called, 'Kick-ass Plays for Women'. Am working opposite the brilliant Sarah-Lee Dobbs.
Yay, I feel like an actor again!
