So I am apparently working as a stand-in on the new NBC drama "American Dreams" tomorrow. I say "supposedly," cause the last time I got booked for work, they canceled at the last minute.

For those of you who don't know & might ask, a stand-in is selected for their similarity to the actor, height, somewhat weight, skin coloring, hair color, etc. We stand in place of the actor while they go through hair/make-up, run lines, get direction, eat, sleep, whatever, while the crew lights the scene.

I like "American Dreams." It's a good show. That Brittany Snow, she's adorable. I wonder if I am standing in for the kid who plays her younger brother. I usually stand-in for kids.

Work is work, & I am happy to get any. Thrilled to get some on a show or movie. Although slim, there's always the chance to get discovered; right place, right time kinda thing.

But that does mean I have to get up painfully early, when I have been going to sleep around 3-4AM, & sleeping til noon. I figure I need to leave the house by 7:30AM at the latest, & that means waking up by 6:30AM. *ack*

My right leg is seriously painful to walk on, & pretty badly bruised. Last night, I found a new scare (well, didn't so much "find" as much as "stole"), but it was banging me up pretty good. I was repeatedly hitting the same spot of my right thigh, & today, there's swelling & lots of little bruises. Ouch. Walking is painful, because I think I actually bruised the muscle. Oh well. It was worth it, & it will heal.

Nothing to eat at my house....nothing to drink either (well...water). And no money for groceries. Ah, nothing new there, eh?

Anyone burn incense? Gonesh has a really GREAT vanilla one. YUM!!!! I highly recommend!

I am surprised that I haven't heard back from J.B. yet. Maybe he is doing that "standard 3-5 (or 7) day waiting period" thing to call, the one most men use. Or maybe he just wasn't interested. He seemed to be, though, hence my confusion. Oh well.

I should meet Chris this week, & another guy named Koll wants to meet me, too. However, most of these "meetings" are not going past the first one. Perhaps I am putting out a "don't want a commitment" vibe. I think maybe I have too much shit going on to be in a relationship. Other times, I want one. Go figure.
