Ummmm.....why do men you have never met & are talking to for the first time insist on calling you "honey," "sweetie," "gorgeous," "hot stuff," "darlin'," etc??? I can't STAND being called those things by people I don't know, it's too familiar. *arrrrggggghhhhh*
Dooode! I've got this stuff that's like liquid gold! You might remember me mentioning it back when I had that cold, & I gargled with it. I believe it actually did reduce the duration of my cold, cause it sure didn't last long (& I know others who can't get rid of it!).
I got it at the fair, & it's called Florida's Best APR (arthritis pain relief). It relieves like...everything! You drop a tiny drop into your hands, rub it in, & then cup your nose & inhale...& it clears your nasal passages. You drop two capfuls in a hot bath, & it soothes your aching muscles. Like I said, you can gargle with it & it reduces the severity of your cold. You can rub it into your temples for headache relief. The bottle says, "Use on minor cuts, burns, sores, sinus, hay fever, insect bites, sinus headaches, sunburn, colds, helps to stop snoring, use on your hemorrhoids, can help ladies with urinary tract infections, vaginitis, yeast infections & cystitis, back pain, neck pain, cramps, leg pain, etc. Sheesh. I have been soaking my feet in it with hot water, & then rubbing it on my sore feet, & it's amazing!
Check this chit out! It goes a looooong way, too. All natural ingredients.
I sound like an advertisement...but I believe in positive word of mouth is a product is good!
This morning's "work" was mind-bogglingly easy.
I was originally called in at 8:30AM, but they changed the call-time to 10:30AM. I got there exactly on time (cut it really close leaving the house). I worked 3 minutes, TOPS, & was done around 11:45AM. And got paid $125 (well, before taxes!)!!!! Sweet! And had a free breakfast, & said hi to the cute star of the show, Will Estes. :-) Not a bad deal.
Even better, they called & asked me back today. There is a regular stand-in for this little boy, but she is apparently doing something or sick or something, so they are having me fill in. Sweet! Work, two days in a row! I LOVE that!!! I would LOVE to get a steady stand-in gig. That would be SOOO awesome. But I am just grateful to have some work!!!! Contrary to popular belief, I don't LIKE sitting on my butt, doing nothing. I LIKE working...as long as it's within my chosen career, or having something to do with stuff I am interested in.
The crew seemed pretty nice....not that I had much of a chance to get to know any of them.
There was one funny moment. I was standing outside the fake bedroom window, watching what the little boy was doing in the scene, so that I could match it. The director walks by, sees me watching, & says, "Are you the mother?" *gulp* I said, "No, I'm his stand-in." I mean, I guess the little boy to be around 8-10ish, & I guess I technically could have a child that age. But I don't LOOK my age. I must have had a stunned look on my face, cause a crew guy says, "You don't look old enough to have a son that age." I laughed & he said, "No laughing from new people." :-)
I am already getting nervous about the Xmas show at Knott's. The tree-lighting will be fun, but I will be carrying (well, me & Erin when she does it) the entire stage show, & it's a big show. "Peace on Earth/Little Drummer Boy" is a HARD song for me to sing. It's RIGHT on my break. I sing two words in my head voice (which is weak cause I don't use it enough), then drop to my chest voice for one words. Sheesh. The stress. *ack*
