So Cute

I have been trying to post this entry for like 12 hours. (But it's been a way busy day, strangely.)


So, I woke Keith up at 6:30am (after having paced the floors for like an hour, jonesin' to get out of the house and exercise) and made him walk a mile with me to Denny's (for a reward made of eggs) and then, of course, a mile back. Uphill. Awesome. (Love this energy I have lately. Whatever.)


When we get home, Keith checks his email and has an audition for Medium*. New CD. New experience. Detective. One line.** Go get 'em!


So, I go to bed eventually. I lie in bed, doing Sudoku puzzles ("saving the world" as I call it, when I'm trying to turn my brain off and get tired enough to seal up***), and I hear Keith flipping through channels, sure he's clearing his mind of crud while reviewing the sides for his role.


At some point I begin recognizing dialogue coming through the TV and floating into the bedroom. "People put you down enough, you start to believe it." "I think you are a very bright, very special woman." "The bad stuff is easier to believe."


OMG. My beloved Marine Republican Badass**** is relaxing/prepping for his audition by watching a ROMANTIC COMEDY! Oh, I love him so much more just now.

*I promised myself I wasn't going to make fun of her teeth. But, OMG, can I at least make fun of her wardrobe? WTF?????

**At Industry RSVP earlier this week, an actor asked about the purpose in saying yes to one-line roles (and, of course, how to move up to bigger roles). I said, "What's the purpose to saying YES to an offer of a one-line role on a series? Um... it's a co-star credit on your resumé, a blip on your demo reel, and a couple grand once residuals are paid out. Duh!" Man! Actors can be sooo shortsighted sometimes!

***Back in my WUOG grad advisor days, I hung out with a good many cool kids (undergrads) who had lots of fun sayings, one of which (at last call) was, "I'm sealin' up." It was accompanied by hand gestures mimicking the closing of the inner eyelids cats have, displaying a severe need to go home and get to bed.

****If you'd like to see Keith's latest rockstar headshots, clink here. HAWT. Yeah, baby!

Go Keith!!

But is "Pretty Woman" really a romantic comedy? Really? I mean, it doesn't have Tom Hanks or Meg Ryan in it.

I am about 1/2 through a GOOD rewrite! Yeehaw. They ain't eating supper anymore though, so I have to think of another new title!

Breakdown September 5th - woo!

And okay, can you do a chant or incantation or something for me - I'm having trouble focusing. I'm all planning next year and I um, need to finish this rewrite by um, next week.

Like, "do I really need both? should I do pastry or cooking first? where will i live and work? and how am i going to pay back all that student debt?" and, "I wonder if Bonnie's posted a new blog?"

1. Hot and hot.

2. "an actor asked about the purpose in saying yes to one-line roles"
um, Cody laughed pretty hard at this one as he was heading out the door and asked if you would tell that dude to just give casting his phone number and he will come and do all the one-line roles the dude dosen't feel are worthy of him.
(kid is off for audition for exactly that today, guest-star, three lines and he's a happy lad for it!)

there is no 3. except the 3 auditions lad had this week!

oh and did you know that bad teeth are becoming extinct, yup, everybody is bracing out crookedness. Will we see actors called in just for their 'crooked teeth' in the future? and casting having a difficult time finding one?
oh and vibes vibes vibes!!!!

Babes (re: Breakdown September 5th - woo!): Woo indeed! I'm excited! And I'm hoping that your lack of recent contact has everything to do with the fact that you are VERY busy (and happily) rewriting. Woo!

Suzer (re: Cody): He just rocks. And (re: teeth): That's a HOOT! I totally believe that'll become a special skill! Hee! Also (re: vibes): Thanks, much. Keith was put on hold then released the next day. He was their 2nd choice (which is great, considering it was his first time in with this new CD). Woo!

Anna (re: "These are broken. Mine are broken."): I have been "hearing" you say this ever since you posted it. You're so effin' cool.

Hmmm... having a kickass show like MEDIUM on your resume? Aww c'mon, that isn't worth one line! *cough*
Keith's TOTALLY gonna get called back for a future part... one-liner or more, I knows it! Second choice is AWESOME!!!
