That audition was traumatizing!

I’m getting back in the game. This happened so quickly. Last weekend I received a call about an audition. That same day I was informed about another project. That was going into production the next day. I’m working on this project. We’ve shot a few exterior scenes. It was a blast! I’ve worked with them before. On a few other projects. I will admit that hearing the words… “Action!, Cut! Quiet on set!” Sounds harmonious to the ears….

The audition to me was brutal! I literally wanted to scream and cry. This was the first time this has ever happened. This was the second audition. All the faces that were at the first audition returned. Which I thought was great! I was able to exchange info with ones that I weren’t able to last time. I can’t talk about it due to signing an agreement. However, I do like the concept. I just don’t think that this is for me. Do I think that I did great? Did I totally bomb this audition? According, to my reaction at the end. I’ve totally bombed! I remember when they said, “Okay, We’ll be in touch.” I totally sucked my teeth and bolted out of there. I did run into the executive producer by the elevator. She was very nice and we chatted. Or, maybe she was doing all the chatting. I do remember the hug exchange. When I felt better about it.

Was those the best five hours of my life? Maybe! Each experience is always a great one. No matter the outcome. It definitely wasn’t the worst. Imagine sitting behind a desk being under appreciated and looked over. While being their saving grace at times. The audition sounds much better. I’m just in my feelings about it. I don’t know how much longer I’m going to be bothered by this. This was the first audition I’ve been to in two years. I shouldn’t be discouraged but I am. However, this is what I chose. So, I gotta man up and get it together! I don’t expect a call back at all. Which is fine… I’ve met some cool and interesting individuals. However, I don’t think that they were expecting Porky Pig! Was I channeling him in my audition? You’ve definitely would’ve thought!!! Ugh!!!!

The Hamptons Trip

Leaving a getaway can be bittersweet. You’re extremely sad that it’s come to an end. At the same time, you can’t wait to get home. It was as soon as, we hopped on the LIRR. I was anxious and antsy about getting in my bed. I sat on the train and my body gave me the hint.

Bismarck, Lane, Sonya & Jonathan

It’s getting hotter in June. No! It’s getting colder in June. One day it’s scorching outside. By the end of the week, it’s freezing. This was how Bismarck was describing Lane’s mood swings. She’ll start crying at any moment. As far as, eating is concerned. Sonya has become her foodie friend. Sonya can eat like a pig. She’ll always have a model figure. What’s with the Ritz crackers and ice cream? I’m going to admit… I’m probably going to try this soon. I’ll let you know what happens….

See What Happens When You Leave The Door Unlocked….

I’m heading home from an afternoon of treating myself. Yes! I feel that it’s a requirement to pamper yourself twice a week. Saying that you don’t have time to do so, is bull crap. Anywho, the phone is vibrating nonstop. I’m jamming to Whitney Houston’s “I’m your baby tonight “ album. You don’t interrupt Nippy! Eventually, I looked and saw who it was.

Expecting The Unexpected

We’re getting through the spring season. It would be nice if we can actually receive spring weather. I’m about ready to fold my turtlenecks and break out the summer colors. I’m not complaining at all. We just need some consistency. With the change in seasons. They’ve noticed a slight change with Lane.

The New Venture

“Wait!! Are you serious? Are you afraid? Omg!! I couldn’t!” These are the questions that my friends and associates are asking me. The answer to those questions are yes, no and you couldn’t because you’re not me. Since the pandemic, I’ve been able to freelance. Due to the changes happening at work. I’m still working at the salon. It’s just not as much. So…..

It’s actually pretty amazing!!
