One Show Ends, One Episode Wraps, One Woman Pees

So, I may go crazy. Life has been nuts. Which is good, because busy is always better than sitting on the couch stuffing my face with reduced fat wheat thins, crying because I have nothing to do. But, still. I may pass out.

8 Minute Madness closed this past weekend. I'll miss the cast (most of them) and my lovely scene partner, but I am also a little glad to see it go. The random schedule was starting to get to me. I got pretty good feedback, although my best role it probably wasn't. You win some, you lose some. I got a video of it, which I have mixed feelings about. Stage isn't meant to be filmed and watching it may be a huge mistake. As soon as I have time I'll make that decision. I've yet to hear about anyone influential that saw the show, except that I was called in to read in a playwright's series for another theater company. So that's something.

I've been flyering my face off for the past week, too. It's been testing my life choices, I have to say. At least the weather has been nice. The past few shifts have been brutal, though. Time stands still. I swear. This week I work triple shifts every day because we're also doing promos for a certain eco-friendly company. It's a shit load of work, which is great because it's money.... but it also makes you so tired you could snuggle up next to that homeless lady on 33rd and 7th because you don't think you can make it home. This morning that homeless lady popped a squat right in front of me and started peeing over the subway grate. Just to give you an idea of how desperate one might be when considering snuggling up for a nap. (p.s. this story is true. She really peed right in front of me. On a scale of one to gross, it was pretty f*ing gross.)

I finished off my temp job. Thank you, Jesus. I do not miss fluorescent lighting or bone deep paper cuts. Not even a little. Not even when I'm standing on a street corner next to a woman relieving herself.

Last weekend I filmed episode 4 of From Date to Mate for ShalomTV. I had a great time, once again. The crew is great and it's like hanging out with friends putting the show together. They asked if they could use my apartment for filming, and of course I agreed. That meant that I spent a day cleaning the crap out of my apartment. I'm sure it would be better if it looks "lived-in" but lets be honest. My room was a wreck. No way in hell that was going on TV.

We only did two-ish takes of most of my scenes, which is nerve wracking. I guess if we didn't get it the director would ask to do it again, but having most of my experience come from stage work getting another take is, to put it plainly, the BEST THING EVER. I want more. I may become a diva and start asking for more I love it so much. Just kidding. But seriously.

I'll let you know when it airs!

The broadway workshop presentation for friends and invited guests went on as well. (See what I mean? Busy.) It kinda sucked for me, because my partner wasn't able to make it so I spent most of the time walking around with a sassy Latina attitude watching everyone else dance. Oh well. It was great seeing all those people again and I had a good time. So there.

In other news, I think I'm about to add another odd job to my resume. I had an interview today to be a shopping tour guide! It went well and I will train next weekend! I think it's a good fit since I studied fashion and all. More work and more money can only help. I'll let you know how that goes.

So just to give you an went like this: 7:30-9:30 flyering, 10:45-11:30 audition, 12-2 sandwich of the month sampling, 2:45-3:30 Interview for shopping tours, 4-7 eco-friendly promotion, 7:30 sit down...finally. And the activities were at various locations between 29th street and 45th street. It was a day.

I'll try to keep you updated more so that I don't end up with these ridiculously long posts. If you made it to this part, I appreciate your attention. It means a lot.

Until next time...
