Ah, I have finally found a blogging-minute. I spent the morning buying groceries to replenish my sparse kitchen. I hadn't found the time to go since getting back into town on Sunday. The first shopping trip after being out of town always feels like an accomplishment. Then, one of my best girl friends invited me out for an early "birthday lunch" (my actual birthday is Saturday). We enjoyed some soup and salad at Olive Garden (ok, I also splurged on a birthday bellini...it was almost 1:00pm...that's after Noon, at least...), and then we went for lattes at Starbucks.
The rest of the afternoon was spent doing some character study for a film audition I have Monday. This could be a big opportunity for me, so I'm very excited. They want me to have a specific accent for the role, so I have been doing research to find good examples of the one I need to learn.
My play reading performance last night was a lot of fun, and I think it went quite well. I was very flattered to receive some nice compliments on my acting afterwards. I like that the event was professional, yet low key, and sort of like a little cocktail party that included a reading. I hope I'll get to do more in the future. Just having a "toe" back into the theatre world, really made me remember how much I love it. It's like home.
For now, I'm curling up in my "girl throne" with the rest of my soy latte and delving into this film script they've sent me. I love when I'm able to have access to the entire script before an audition, not just the one scene they want me to read. I happen to be mimicking Gwyneth's outfit above, coincidentally. Nothing better than a big, cozy sweater and a pair of boy shorts or undies to get comfy on a Fall day. I've added my trademark knee high socks to the mix, with an argyle pattern.
Hope everyone's having a lovely day. I am so glad the weekend is upon us!
