Listened to a collection of short stories by Kurt Vonnegut on the way into work. I particularly liked “Harrison Bergeron”. The story is set In the future, where social equality is obtained by handicapping the majority of its citizens. A delicious premise indeed.
Working from home today because I have so much work to get done with and don’t want to waste two hours commuting back and forth. Another luxury of working from the house is not having to wear headphones all day. This American Life has kept me company while I’ve been playing in photoshop for the last 4 hours.
I just realized I have been sitting in the dark for the past two hours starring like a mad woman at my computer. My hair is pulled up in a samurai style pony tail and I have bits of left over quinoa sprinkled over my keyboard and down the front of my shirt. This is why I shouldn’t work from home. I have been going 12 hours straight on editing a trailer for work and casting a short film about drug dealing con men and the prostitutes who screw them over. Oh man, I need a vacation or a weekend. Then again, I’m thinking about doing a seminar for actors who are just starting out and giving them tips about what to avoid doing when someone from casting calls. It’s unbelievable how easy someone can talk themselves out of getting a part even before they audition. I need dinner.
We’re going to the Emmy’s Saturday and next Sunday. It’s Wednesday, and I still haven’t gone shopping for a dress. I told my sister this today and she looked at me like I was crazy. Some people procrastinate with work, I put off shopping. I don’t think my sister procrastinates with either.
Here is a link to the 101 show I worked on this month. So excited to a be a part of this wonderful, colorful experiment. I loved everyone’s segments and point of view as an animator. So cool and fun to see Sophie in this as well. Congrats to Danny and Jason for making primetime!
