*necklace from Stella&Dot, more details to come on this next week!
What’s bad about this photo is that I actually tried to look cute. This is me trying, how sad is that? Obviously this winter has been hard on me. My hair is broken, my skin is cracking, and my soul is damaged. You can see it in my eyes, I just look defeated. You win, Winter. YOU WIN!
I had to throw out my second pair of jeans this month because they got a big ol’ hole in them on the inner thigh. Anyone know what I’m talking about here? That inner thigh hole of shame. Ripping jeans means one of two things A. you’re gaining weight or B. you’ve repeatedly worn your jeans so much they’ve finally just said screw you, we’re not doing this anymore.
Have I been eating too much this winter? Most likely. Saturday’s dinner at Vivo certainly didn’t help.
Bruschetta with mushrooms, gorgonzola & sun dried tomato.
I like to eat my caesar salad with anchovies because it makes me feel like a Ninja Turtle.
And this little heavenly dish was italian sausage in tomato sauce with goat cheese. It was probably one of the best pasta dishes I have ever had.
So sure, I haven’t exactly been “clean eating” lately. A girl’s gotta look forward to something.
Speaking of looking forward to something, I got kind of a crazy phone call on Monday. Turns out I’m going to be shooting a pilot for a reality-ish show in two weeks. I use the term “reality-ish” because for the most part I’m not a huge fan of reality shows. But this one sounds different, it sounds pretty awesome in fact. I don’t want to give it all away, but it’s a show about young comedians trying to make it in this crazy world of improv shows and iO classes and stand-up gigs and everything else that all of us dreamers are doing day in and day out. Much of the show’s focus will be about iO Theater and the comedic stars it has bred over the years. I love iO and everything it has taught me so when given the chance to be a part of something that has to do with it of course I said yes. I read a quote from Tina Fey once that said, “say yes and you’ll figure it out afterward.” That quote probably has more to do with improv than saying yes to being on a reality show, but que sera sera.
I was pretty much sold on the show after speaking with one of the writer’s when he told me he “loved my sidekick dog, Harlow.” Done and done, I’m in. Part of their casting process was trying to get to know us on a more personal level so I gave them my blog address and basically said everything you want to know is right there. A few days later I got the call saying shooting starts in two weeks.
The way the process works (from what I understand) is that we’ll shoot the pilot and then the producers will try to pitch it to a network. If it gets picked up we’ll start shooting a lot more. So yeah, there’s a chance no one will ever see this show. But I’m okay with that chance, it’s all going to be a great experience regardless of the outcome from my standpoint. I’m just always excited to be a part of something new. And something that will give me new blog material…
And at the very least maybe Harlow will get his own show out of it. Let’s be honest, we all know that’s always been my intention anyway.
