That was the week that was

In which our Diva waves on her way by in a bit of a blur

Whew! Since I last posted here:

  • Three auditions, one of which scored me a fun day-player part in an indie feature, shooting the end of February (more info soon)
  • Rehearsals for two projects (My Cousin Radu, which shoots next week, and Elgin Opera's upcoming gala)
  • One rush web promo video -- I submitted on it this morning, and shot it this afternoon! That last also means my first paid gig of 2010 is in the can, yay!

And of course there was still day jobs and electronic housekeeping (updates on my website...um...soonish) and actual housekeeping (life is never entirely out of control if you're caught up on laundry). With a couple hours' breather carved out for the Sanctuary season finale and penultimate Dollhouse episode, as well as the unaired pilot of the latter. (Which is way talky, and showed way too much of its hand too soon. The gradual and ambiguous way the true horror of the Dollhouse came to light may have made a lot of people very very uncomfortable -- because it took a long time for the show to be overt about saying yes, what is happening here is a horror -- but I don't think it would have been nearly as effective otherwise.)

The upcoming week includes more rehearsals and a callback I've been looking forward to, which will involve fight work as well as reading. The prospect of playing with swords remains the most reliable motivation for getting my behind out of bed and getting that morning workout in!

Song for today: "Do You Wanna Date My Avatar?" by Felicia Day and the cast of The Guild. Just 'cause it's the earwormiest earworm that ever earwormed (seriously, I dare you to get it out of your head), and the video is hilarious if you know even a little bit about online roleplaying games.

I just now got around to experiencing "Do You Wanna Date My Avatar?", thanks to your link. It's as funny and catchy as you said, and I need to keep my eyes open for more of Ms. Day! Thanks for sharing.
