All I ever needed to know… Wednesday, Apr 30 2008 

I learned on Sex in the City! Hahahahahaha!

Yes, I am one of thosegirls that absolutely LOVES this show! I say LOVES in the present tense because I own all 6 seasons and I watch them as much as possible… I never get tired oh Carrie’s questions, Samantha’s ridiculous sexual escapades, Miranda’s cynicism and Charlotte’s optimism. This show is amazing because (1) it’s still relevant and will continue to be so because it deals with love and relationships, and those my friends are Universal! (2) each character is unique in their own way and covers the vast personality types us women are known to have thus guaranteeing that there will be a character we relate to, and (3) even men can learn a thing or two about us women by watching, just don’t tell your guy friends! 😉

Last night brought a few finished projects for me… I finished my 4th load of laundry from the massive room cleaning I did Monday night, I finished my stress over technology and figured out how to work my tv and dvd player with one easy trip to RadioShack (M are you proud?? I didn’t call you!) and I finished the 4th Season of Sex in the City! ::sigh:: Mr. Big moved! OMG! Miranda had a baby! OMG! Charlotte got divorced and Samantha caught her bf with another woman… ok so maybe not an OMG but still OMG!!!!

Hahahahaha!

The Moviewill be out May 30th… a convient date for us girlies to help make time go faster for a certain wife-to-be! 🙂  (who happens to be blogging along the lines of my friend Mr. Snackmissioner… check them both out!)

I’ll be up later tonight with more HNT stuff… it’s the Spring Cleaning #2 – The Room

::da da daaaaaaa::

Um… yeah… that’s all for me now… I’m working on SF Fringe stuff (today is the deadline…eeep!)… building a MySpace for “Tale End”…. Mr. NZ got his plane ticket! YAY!… the boy is in town and I’ll see him soon! YAY!!!… and yeah rehearsals are starting up, work is going great, and all that jazz! Hahahaha!!

~Ciao!

 EDIT!!!!

Cause I’m a nerd! I have completed my pre-rehearsal ritual… not that I’m superstitious, it’s just that I feel better prepared and more open minded when I do these little things… and as a reward for my getting cast I indulge my love/obsession with office supplies:

 Isn’t it pretty?!?!?! All recycled materials with a new pencil pouch with new pencils and post-it tabby thingy’s and other little do-dads that help me throughout the rehearsal process…

AND at Target I also got this:

I went to see this in the theater, all by myself, and I was all alone… it was like my own private screeneing! 🙂 And now I have it on DVD!!! Yay!  

I love my Crackberry!!! Tuesday, Apr 29 2008 

Yes, I love my Blackberry SO much that when my first one took an unauthorized swim in the toilet… I did everything and anything to replace the growth on my hip as soon as feasibly possible. I will be suffering from Blackberry Thumb before the age of 30. I pay WAY TOO MUCH for my phone bill every month. But damnit… it’s handy! I love that I have my entire office at my hip and I can do work needed to get done where ever I am. I couldn’t have survived the Rogue Festival this year without my beloved Blackberry.

I’ve even thwarted attempts from others to try and separate me from my beloved.

So… that being explained… I actually wore out the plastic case I bought thus forcing me to use a leather slip case. This was highly inefficient. I couldn’t wear my Blackberry on my hip, it only went in a pocket and I am religiously against sitting on my Blackberry! Something had to be done, I had to go buy another case!

I went to The Postal Station & Mobile Page… they have EVERYTHING and they sell it at wholesale prices which means AWESOME deals! And Shant, the owner, is entirely helpful and will know exactly what you need. Not only did I walk through the door with my phone in hand but as soon as he saw me he said, “I know exactly what you need!” and he did!  

::sounds of heavenly music::

I’ve gone METAL! Yes! I now have a metal case for my Beloved Blackberry and I couldn’t be happier!!!

Ok, I’m a nerd. I know. But this is totally cool and I paid about $20 less than what I would have if I had gone to the AT&T store! 😀 It’s freakin awesome!

If you’re in the Fresno Area and you need something for your phone… check them out… I highly recommend!!!

Monday… eh…. Monday, Apr 28 2008 

I’m a big fan of changing the work week to 4 10 hour work days… I just want another day off! Sunday was blissful, napping, eating and wathcing movies. I needed to clean my room and do my laundry but alas I have put that off until tonight. I will take pics and probably post them as HNT this week. Spring Cleaning #2 or something…

I posted some weekend fun over at Fresnocentric so check it out!

Short and sweet today…. like I said… I want another day off!

Edit: I just found out I get my script today for Twelfth Night!!! Woot! Now I can start memorizing!!! Yay!

Da Count – the little things Friday, Apr 25 2008 

It’s all about the little things for me in a relationship. I love the comfortability I share with those I care about.

I went out for drinks with my main Jelly Bear and while we were in the midst of conversation Mr. New Zealand called. 🙂 I was SO surprised! Jelly Bear talked to him too… you know the whole best friend scoping out if your main squeeze is worthy… and she totally fell in love with his voice! hahaha! Yeah, pretty eff-ing hot accent if you ask me! 😉

Mr. NZ and I had been emailing back and forth all day and really the phone call was totally out of the blue! It was really nice to hear his voice. 🙂 It makes the distance between us right now not seem so far away.

My da Count today is Mr. New Zealand and the little things he does to make me smile.

* Yes, that’s him… muscles, tattoos and beer… HOT HOT HOT!

 

HNT #3 – Spring Cleaning (pt. 1) Wednesday, Apr 23 2008 

In anticipation of the onset of rehearsals and a hectic busy schedule, I decided it was finally time to clean out Scarlett. I offer 3 examples:

Example #1

She’s pretty dirty on the outside too, but I’ll have to wait until a non-threat-of-rain day to complete the process… baby steps…

Example #2

The soda in the center console has been there for weeks… and you can’t tell but in the leg space for the front passenger there is NO room! All trash from eating on the go and empty water bottles and old receipts… yeah it was a mess…

Example #3

This is the backseat. Yeah, you can guess how many people I do NOT drive around! 😛 APJ gave me a wonderful handy dandy rolly cart for my Rogue Bibles, I just never took them out of my car. Sweatshirts, parts of costumes, Christmas presents, scripts, etc….

Yeah, I’m organized and totally together a bit OCD and a slob too… enough people kindly suggested it was time for me to clean out my car… so I did. 30 – 45 minutes later…

 The Interior still needs to be vacuumed and spiffied and the outside needs a good scrubbing… but this is a good beginning. Just don’t ask to look in the trunk

😉

Happy HNT!!!

I just don’t get it… Tuesday, Apr 22 2008 

and maybe that’s ok. Maybe I’m not invested enough. I completely see this as my short coming, but seriously?? This political soap opera that’s called Decision ’08 is mind boggling. I don’t want to vote for the lesser of the evils. I don’t want to vote for someone that talks a good talk and walks a good walk only to gain office and sit on their ass and do nothing. I think the political climate in this country MUST change if we want any type of progress at all.

Sure, I’m not happy about the war, but an immediate with drawl would do more harm than good; I think of it like a stab wound, pull the knife out quickly and all at once and you can cause more bleeding and damage to the wound, pull the knife out slowly and there is less damage. But at least Start pulling the knife out, start the healing process…

I have stayed away from this topic particularly because it is a hot button issue. People get heated about politics, I used to be one of them. Debating up and down California and competing on the national level, I used to eat, breathe, sleep politics and what was going on in the world. I had really strong beliefs in what was right and how the country could turn itself around. Life was a debate round and I was willing to die for the TKO. And I woke up one morning and realized I was miserable and my heart was bleeding out fast. So I’m a little weary of the subject.

But it’s a news article about Michael Moore’s endorsement that bothers me. It quotes Moore in saying: “My endorsement is more for Obama The Movement than it is for Obama the candidate.” Now is it just me, or is there something extremely wrong with that statement? Maybe this is a new idea that is radical enough to actually work. It’s not the leader of the country that’s important, it’s the movement. Sure, I can see that, but there’s things about this particular leader’s movement that confuses me. I want to understand. I want to know what the big deal is. I read the political platforms of the 3 major candidates and there’s red flags all over the place.

So, I want to know… if you’re willing to talk to me, not bash me over the head with political jargon and campaign catch phrases, and explain to me your reasons for voting for a particular candidate, I’d be thankful. I don’t want to debate. I just want the reasons why people are throwing their voice and vote behind a particular candidate. I understand this is a private thing, so email me (solitarehnt@gmail.com) and we can chat.

I want to understand. I want to be an informed voter that understands the issues and can see through the mud slinging, false campaign promises and over all bullshit. Can you help me?

Da Count – Da Starline Friday, Apr 18 2008 

A whole heck of a lot of fun! I love working at the Starline. Cadie, Mika, C, Mandy, Karin, Denise, Julie, Rachel, Jason, Jordan and of couse Da BOSSMAN! They all have such different personalities but I seriously get excited when I go into work because I love to hang out with these folk. I mean you can most likely find me there even when I’m NOT working. We have our regulars that come in and I’ve gotten to know them, the new crowd that comes is gets a full dose of our goofy atmosphere and I love every minute of it.

I worked last night and we were slower than usual, but this gave me the chance to catch up with Rachel and hang out with other folk I enjoy the company of. 🙂 It was nice and relaxing. Mika came in and she’s always a riot, I love this woman because she’s always cracking jokes and being freakin cool! 🙂

It’s important for me to count them because with this weeks ups and downs, emotionally and on my finances (I OWED taxes!!!), it’s nice to go to a place where everyone knows your name! 😉

Cheers and have a wonderful weekend!!!

I am cured! Wednesday, Apr 16 2008
