River Deep, Mountain High

My life continues on in a hilly sort of way. Like the song says "River deep, Mountain High." (with the Tina Turner shakes!) Yesterday I got to giggle through (only a few snorts) The Book Of Mormon for free. It was Josh Gad's last show, and he lost it in the last number in the best way possible. Helluva of way to go out (plus he got a big bouquet!)The show is great, and I recommend it to anyone with the money or luck to get tickets. Funny and heartwarming. Plus I have been singing "ORLANDOOOOOOO! I love you!" all day. Hahahahahha. Everybody in the cast worked it, but the dorkey Mormon missionaries (each and every one them a great big queen) won my heart in pink sparkley vests and tap shoes. I would join a religion that involved those things. Plus any show that also has hobbits, Darth Vader, and Yoda just wins! I entered my mother into a contest to win an early release copy of a book I wanted (Elizabeth Hoyt's latest. Guilty pleasure!) and a crystal duck (Lucky duck club. Quack! Quack!). I also entered my father. And myself of course. But my mother won. Hahahaha. She was pretty tickled. So I do still have some luck. Did some background today. It was an audience spiel. Nonunion for good money and done in 4 to 5 hours. It sounded too good to be true. And it was. They kept us sitting outside for almost five hours. With not enough shade. So I have a lovely v neck sunburn. If I ever have skin cancer, it will correlate with my love of v necks! We were out in a little over 8 without being fed at all. At that point, we could get food beyond chips and tiny water bottles on set, but I just wanted to go home. I miracle caught the 8:02 literally stepping on at 8:01, and then grabbed some tastey pizza from the place across the street from my apartment. It's super good and cheap, but I always feel like the big Italian family that owns it gives off mob vibes. Maybe I need to stop watching Boardwalk Empire...At least I was paid well to be the fire hydrant today! Just stop and sing mt kid style whenever I feel down. If ancient Jews can sail to America, I can make it!


  1. YOUR MOM WON?! I am UBER JEALOUS. Elizabeth Hoyt is one of my fave (not too) guilty pleasures.

    1. I know! Know either she has to visit me or vice versa cause I want to read that book! Hahahaha. I had to explain the whole thing to her. :) Love you Mom. (If you're reading).
