Dear Universe

Dear Universe,

I am very grateful for my upcoming audition opportunity. I am, however, very confused by the concurrent sore throat, runny nose and accompanying headache.

What exactly are you trying to tell me?

My Stomach Is In Knots

Someone, from an acting class I took, has spent the last few days hunting me down. They have a part in a short film, for which they believe I will be perfect. (It's non-speaking and only on screen for less than a minute.)

I like the script and they are shooting during a time when child care will be easy-ish to arrange. (Is it ever really easy to arrange child care?)

After being offered the role, without an audition ('cause that's how small the role is -- or maybe that's how good an impression I made during class?), I was upfront declaring my union status even though it was not requested of me.

I think I've fallen on the wrong side of the line.

I'm no worse off if I don't get the role, but for some reason, now I really, really want it.


At the very least, I hope they get back to me soon!

Three Consecutive Hours

It's been over 6 years since I've had more than 3 consecutive hours, child-free, in my own home. Much of that time, I've spent longing for some quiet "me" time.

Funny then, now that wM is in a full day fun camp, that I miss her so and will be going early to pick-up, so I can spy on her having fun.
