I put my ad up on this new site today.

I have had random guys IMing me through the site all day. They have mostly been trying to insult me (weren't you in "Get Shorty?"), or give "constructive criticism," or hook up with me even though they live across the country & I specified CLEARLY LA County area only.

But this last one...a guy who's 5'4....(therefore, definitely not my type), he IMs me. I didn't see the message pop up, because I clicked something on LJ at the same time, making the message disappear. When I did notice it, he thought he has been dissed, that I was ignoring him. So he says, "Oh, that's ok...I see you only made it through high school, you probably couldn't comprehend what I was saying. My bad." Of course, ironically, it wasn't that well written or all spelled correctly.

This amuses me. Someone who is trying to insult someone's intelligence, but it is intelligence that makes someone insult a complete stranger, simply because they are not interested?

People amuse me.

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.
