OK...I am the proud new owner of Showtime & HBO (no speeches, it's free for 3 months...and who knows what after that...leave me alone to enjoy something free, would ya?).
So I get to watch "The Chris Isaak Show," "The Sopranos," "Six Feet Under," "Sex & the City," & "Queer as Folk."
But I am a bit confused. I can only tape one show, cause I only get the premium channels on one TV...and since I will be working at night for the month of October, I won't be home to change the channel (with the box, it's one of those annoying "you have to watch what channel you are taping"). Some of the above shows come on at the same time. But I am finding "The Sopranos" comes on more than once during the week....which confuses me. Are some of them repeats? If so, what nights does the original (new) episodes come on? What about "Sex & the City" & "Six Feet Under?" Why in the world would these shows come on more than once a week? *sigh*
Can anyone help me out with this info??? I don't wanna have to choose between "Queer as Folk" & "The Sopranos."
So I'm thinking....
When your wittle heart is aching, do you think it's best to jump right back into the swing of things & accept date offers, or chill & lay low for a while??? I am not talking about "getting involved," per se....just meeting/dating.
Just curious as to your opinions....what has worked for you in your life? Or is it different with each different time (well, hopefully, none of you have experienced multiple heartbreaks!)?
I just got booked to be a stand-in on "Providence" tomorrow! That's $115 (BEFORE taxes, of course), but that's money I didn't have before!
Now if only I could get work on Friday, too, & some work on on Monday & Wednesday of next week, I would only be about $500 short for rent, as opposed to $900 short! Wooo-hoooo!
I was JUST about to call my agency & beg for work, too! YAAAAAAY!
And I LOVE "Providence!"
You know one of the main things I hate about summer/hot weather?
Yes, that's one thing. But I'm not talking about that.
Yeah, that's another, but no.
I'm standing in the middle of my living room. It's actually pretty clean, for once, nothing on the carpet. I am standing there, & I feel something crawling on my bare leg. I look down...and there are a couple of ants crawling up my legs. There's no food in my living room. There's nothing on the clean floor. I go into my bathroom & there are ants in there (definitely no food in there). I go into my bedroom, & there are ants in my clothes/shoe closet & running around on the floor (carpet, mind you). Not large amounts of them, but enough to seriously bother me. Sometimes they just chill on you, other times, they sting. WTF? What are you doing in my house? I know it's hot outside, but get the hell out of my house! This is not your refuge from the heat! There's no food where you are, so why are you here? ARGH! I hate ants!!!! And damnit, you can't get rid of the shits. I don't really want to spray Raid on my carpet, it stinks.
"Winter" (like it ever gets really cold in Cali during the day) can't come fast enough for me.
So I had my Haunt orientation tonight.
Ummm...can you say "one of these things is not like the other, one of these things doesn't belong?"
Yeah....I didn't fit it, at all. I felt like I was back in junior high, standing alone.
These people are not the kind of people I would typically hang out with (supervision refers to them as "freaks"....some drive hearses, wear vampire contacts REGULARLY, etc.). Funky colored hair, multiple piercings & tattoos...the kinds of people who like to draw attention to themselves. Most of them work Haunt almost every year. For one thing, they almost all smoke. I HATE SMOKE. I am allergic to it. Five minutes around cigarette smoke & I am really sick. I walked away from a smoker, just to have another come stand next to me. Walked away, just to have another come over to me. I was seriously trapped in second hand smoke HELL. I got so sick (that actually might be part of the reason my stomach hurts). I literally could NOT get away from it (anyone who thinks second hand smoke is NOT harmful outside has another thing coming). So I was miserable there. Even people who looked like people I might want to talk to were smoking, so I had to constantly be standing on the outskirts. Thank God, they won't be able to smoke in the maze. But these people were just odd. Finally, one girl, Georgia, started talking to me....but she continued to talk to me while our captain was talking to us. She was a major nerd...but she was nice. She might be my only "friend." Great. She already invited me to all the hotel "let's get drunk" parties. Wooo-hooo. Sounds like my kinda thing. I soooo do not belong in this work group.
On top of that, it looks like I will have to perform alone. I am apparently the first Malice they see, in the front of the maze. I have no idea what I will be doing yet, but it doesn't sound like I will have much to do. I won't be able to feed off the energy of another performer. If this ends up being true, I am going to be bored out of my MIND! Ai-yi-yi. What have I gotten myself into???
