OK, yeah....I'm irked.

I was told by the casting director that I was working Tuesday for sure, & then off & on---but pretty solidly--from then until the end of the shoot (July 3rd...though I told her I was only available through the 27th). She told me that she put me "on hold" with my extra agency, meaning that even on days "In the Houze" DOESN'T use me, the agency can't book me on anything else, just in case "In the Houze" DOES end up needing me, & also in case another "long term" job pops up.

On the set on Tuesday, they told me that they would NOT need me on Wednesday, but would more than likely need me today & tomorrow, & ALL next week (as you know, throwing a wrench into my plans with my darling brother).

Well....I received no phone call to work today. And here I sit after midnight with no phone call to work tomorrow (Friday). So...no work on Wed., Thur., or Friday. I was not surprised about Thursday, because as *I* read the call sheet, Angus (the little boy I am standing in for) only had a rehearsal, he was NOT shooting anything. I wouldn't have had to be there for a rehearsal. But I am surprised about tomorrow (Fri.).

The shitty thing is, I could have called in & gotten other work for today & tomorrow. Yes, I truly needed to clean my house, but I also REALLY need the money. Desperately. But they have me "on hold" for this production. What's up with that? I am calling the agency tomorrow & see how this works. I would assume they will call me for work all next week (the week I would have LIKED to have had off, to spend with my brother), but who's to say? Maybe the shoot changed....that happens.

I'm just a bit frustrated about it.

Looking at the positive side of it...my living room looks much better, & will look really good (well, not behind the couch or by the back door, but the main part of the living room) by the end of tomorrow. I have to straighten up the hallway (everything from the living room that is supposed to go into the bedrooms gets thrown into the hallway), straighten the bathroom (which actually looks really good), & straighten the kitchen (not much to do there), & I am ready for my bro's visit. Is it a NEAT house by most people's standards? Heavens, no. There's too much clutter. But it's certainly passable. You can see the floor & see the couch...THAT is clean for me. :-)

Also, more plus side....I get to go see my friend's show tomorrow night, "Simply Sondheim." 3 very good friends are in it, & they were really excited to have me come see it. If I had had to work on the set, I don't know if I would have gotten out in time to go see it. Saturday night, I am expected over at crankyangel's for a party (don't want to miss dirty dice!!!), & for their Sunday matinee...well, I work on Sundays. So I would have missed the show.

I ask for two things....IF I work next week, to get out early on Monday in order to make it to dinner at Joe's Crab Shack, & to have Tuesday off OR get out early, so that I can take my bro to Hollywood. *crossing fingers*

Everything happens for a reason....everything happens for a reason....everything happens for a reason.....

Night.

If anyone is remotely curious as to why I locked a post that was previously unlocked (you know who you are)....yes, I live my life honestly & have nothing to hide. However, I have honestly grown weary of people claiming to be friends flaming me for being so honest in my journal. I know some of you know how that feels. As someone pointed out the other day, stress makes me sick. So I try to cut the stress where I can. I should have locked it in the first place, in retrospect. That would have been wise. But I do realize there are "lackies" & locked stuff has a way of getting "leaked," & this particular person did a post about how it's possible to read locked entries...so I figured, what's the point? But while this person may be smart enough to break in, other idiots are not that smart...so this lock was done to keep THEM out...not the person it's about. Last thing I need is that loser knowing my business (important biz, anyway).

I didn't set out to hurt anyone. I was removed. I posted about my feelings on it, as people frequently do when stuff like this goes down. My intention in posting wasn't to hurt anyone or ire anyone...it was to get things off my chest. That IS what a journal is for. If someone's feelings are hurt (don't you have to care about them to be hurt by them....honestly?), for that, I apologize.

And those who think I am interested in playing games....sure I am. Taboo, Scattergories, Guesstures, charades, Life, Maniac, etc. But internet games? No, sorry, not interested. If me being honest CAUSES drama (such as saying I agree with Southwest Airlines) then so be it. I will not sit on my opinions to prevent drama. Opinions are like assholes....everyone has one, & you usually don't want to see others. But I will say what I need & want to say. If it causes drama, it wasn't intentional, & I will deal with it if it happens. But set out INTENTIONALLY to cause drama or hurt someone's feelings? Nope. Not my style. Sorry. Drive through.

Yesterday, I had hummus.

Not, not a hummer, hummus (ummm...I don't think I can even have a hummer...seeing as I am without the proper equipment).

It was a momentous occasion for me. I don't eat "healthy" things like that. It was pretty tasty, though. A lot of garlic, however. Definitely not something to eat before or on a date (yeah, like I get a lot of those). I haven't quite figured out the proper way to eat it yet. It was okay on my English muffin (no, not mistertibbs), but not the best it could have been. Any suggestions?

My cat, Ernie. *sigh*

He just found a nice clean spot of floor (I have been cleaning for 3 days....shocking, I know) & took a piss.

His litter box was CLEAN & 5 feet away. Duncan's litter box (which he loves to use) is just in the other room, & also CLEAN.

WTF?????

Pardon the foul language, but....

FUCKITY FUCK FUCK FUCK!!!!

My very expensive Oreck-can-pick-up-everything vacumn just died. Not cool. I am still in the process of straightening my house for [Unknown LJ tag]'s visit, & I still need to vacumn the hall AND the pc room. Unbelievable. I mean, it's FRIED. It started smoking & everything. A horrible smell was emitted. I don't even know what did it. A paper clip, maybe? I am usually pretty careful to check for big things before vacumning. Whatever it was, PLEASE don't tell me the motor is broken! I cannot even afford to fix such a costly thing, or even replace it with a cheaper vacumn, much less buy a new Oreck. It's not brand spanking new, but it's fairly new, & I hardly ever use it. Son of a bitch. God, the smell is awful! And the smoke made me nervous. I might try to drop it off at Oreck on Saturday. Find out the bad news. *sigh*

That means I have to vacumn with my tiny Shark. Oh joy.

Current Mood: pissed off
