The Blog Saucer

Things are rough, but I’m busy.

Show’s almost over.  An ex (insert sad story here), and a guy I met at an audition have seen it, but one of my best friends, and my family haven’t seen it. My family probably won’t. I don’t know how this makes me feel. Though not my best performance/show, it is one of my favorites/best.

I’ve already got 3 shows lined up after the Bee. Two are Christmas shows and two are for Scottish Rite. Looking forward to it-although I was kinda thinking I would be doing some Equity shows now… these shows heard about the Equity and were able to get me to commit before things became official.

Like I said, things are rough, but I’m busy. And when I’m this busy, well… I wouldn’t say I’m at my happiest, per se, but I am happy. That’s what is important. Right now at least. I’ll worry about bad things when they’re all I have left. I’m too busy having a good time being a working actor.

Sorry I haven’t updated. There isn’t much really. Still busy with the show and work.

To catch you up though, I’ve got three shows booked after the Bee. But… ummm… none of them are Equity. But hey, work is work. I’ve got two Christmas shows lined up and another kids show at Scottish Rite after that.

Anybody watch Heroes? Seriously, am I the only person who wonders whatthefreakever happened to Peter’s Irish lass of a girlfriend from back in season two? It really bugs me.

Moving on.

Do you like scary movies? And I mean actual scary horror movies, not gore porn, as I like to call it. Go see Paranormal Activity NOW. I went with most of the cast after one of our shows. Now for those who know me, and my ghost stories, know I like a good scare, but its usually over when the movie is over. I was still scared after the movie. Our entire group was still scared after the movie. When I got home, I keep seeing images from the movie when I would close my eyes. I let the dogs sleep on the bed with me (after having been banned for almost 4 years), left the night light on, and the medication-which makes you drowsy-did not make me drowsy at all. Please. Go see it before America turns “too cool for school” and doesn’t like it anymore. I’ve already seen someone post on their FB status that they didn’t think the movie was scary at all and that the trailer ruins the end. Well, I think you must have been scared; because I think fear led you to closing your eyes which in turn made you miss what happened after what you thought was ruined in the trailer. The trailer does not ruin the end.

I doubt there are any tickets left, but Alamo Drafthouse is having a special VIP screening hosted by Paramount. They don’t want to ruin any surprises, so asides from saying there will be a party afterwards, they’re saying expect guests and goodies. I’ll be there.

On the topic of horror type things, go check out my roomie (and other friends) in Evil Dead the Musical happening at SVT. It’s still running, but only till the end of the month!


Somebody Blog me

Wow, quite a week.

Sun/Mon I had a headache that eventually turned into a migraine that WOULD NOT go away. Tuesday I started to feel better. Then Wednesday came around. The migraine slowly crept back and I had a hard time keeping food down. Not only did I vomit before the show, I had a little upchuck onstage right before my song! Two measures before I had to sing to be exact.

Rona: He’s going for the foot! (music cue)

(Jose hurls a little right after turning away from the audience and thinks to himself, “You swallow that! SWALLOW IT!” and does so.)

Barfee: Maaaagic foot…

I missed two days of work.

I went to the doc the next day and told him the sitch-including my schedule and mostly lack of sleep. He said it was a combo of a stomach virus and that a lot of stress has built up recently and my body was reacting to that. Luckily, he continued, it sounded like I was at the end of it. So he prescribed some stuff for the nausea. He added it would make me drowsy so sleep shouldn’t be a problem either. Great news. BUT I had to wait to take it. I still had the show for that night and then work. I was feeling mostly better so it was okay anyway.

So I’ve slept and I’m mostly better. I don’t feel rested just yet, though. My back is sore from all the visits to the porcelain god and leg pain as usual. At least its slow at work tonight. Slower than usual that is. And for now, I’ve got net access again, AND I’ve got an admin profile now so I was able to download Flash Media player and have been watching tv shows, between working on projects. I like being caught up on tv. I’m such a couch potato.

I’ve been wathcing a lot of the new shows. I’ve heard Eastwick is so bad it makes you want to puke. Maybe I’ll avoid that one…
