Can Bliss Come From the Ground Up? Maybe.

April 30, 2012

Those of you who come here regularly may already know that my latest quest for true bliss comes from the ground up.  I used to think that it came from the top down- that if I could just have good hair that nothing else would matter.  And while I haven’t given up on trying...

It’s Official!

April 23, 2012
It’s Official!

When I moved to Los Angeles there were two things I learned very quickly.  Nine out of ten people living here were not born here, and eight out of those nine moved here for The Industry. Actors, writers, artists, editors, wannabe directors… they came to La La Land with a common goal, and for...

My Latest Loves

April 10, 2012

I love shopping. KIDDING. I actually do not like shopping, I just like buying stuff.  I like new stuff that looks cool. And I like new clothes and new food and new books and new plants. I cannot always buy new things, so I do a lot of window shopping, mostly online and through...

Preparing For My Career As a Foley Artist

March 30, 2012

I should stick to writing, although I have been a having a hard time putting my fingers to the keys, lately.  But because it’s Friday and I’m silly, I will share some of my silliness with you.  Yes, I am aware that I look shifty on camera.  I swear I am not on anything,...

Crazy Chemical Surprise

November 24, 2011
Crazy Chemical Surprise

Happy Thanksgiving! And now, for the real post. In an effort to keep things fresh, I like to mix things up a bit.  I mix up the flour before I spoon it out for baking.  I mix up the coffee before measuring my scoops. And while in the car I like to mix the...

Funny Music

September 26, 2011

Is this a lady? No, it’s  man. No, it’s a lady! (giggling) No, it’s a man.  He just has a high voice. What’s this music called? Yaz. Yaz? (full-on laughing) Y-a-z.  Yaz. This is funny music, isn’t it, Mommy!

RemembeRED: So, Do You Wanna Play?

July 19, 2011
RemembeRED: So, Do You Wanna Play?

I drive over to the party by myself.  I am totally okay with going alone.  It’s an acquaintance’s house,  and after putting and end to a long, unhealthily pointless relationship I feel independent. I walk in well after dark, but the Texas heat still hangs heavy.  The “party” is more like a small gathering...

The Sweetest School of Rock

July 7, 2011

We are a very musical family.  Scott and I met, and fell in love, playing music together.  We still play when Hayden will tolerate it, and we love to crank it up in the car when we’re on dates. One or more of us is always humming or jazz handsing around the house (okay,...

I Needed Help Getting Over This Hump.

February 2, 2011

Last night could have been the opening sequence for that movie Sleep, Interrupted. It started with a lost lovie.  And then a cough that went on for an hour.  And then a squeaky request for water. Even after sleeping through my usual workout hour, when Hayden began chirping at seven am, I was tired. ...

Rainy Day

January 3, 2011

It’s another cold and rainy day in Los Angeles, but I couldn’t be more comfy.  Hayden went back to school this morning (yay!), so the house is calm.  The mess in here would indicate that I have nine children instead of one, but at least nobody throwing a tantrum.  I am at my desk...

Lose Yourself In The Grid

December 18, 2010
Lose Yourself In The Grid

I have been living in The Grid vicariously for two years.  Because my husband has been there.  In fact, he helped create it.  Designing and redesigning sequences, making the layout of the scenes seamless.  For two years.  Each movie that he works on becomes his life, as well as mine.  The long hours, the...

Another Scary Kids’ Movie

Another Scary Kids’ Movie

I am one of those geeks who puts up the Christmas Tree the week of Thanksgiving.  It takes a lot of effort for me to put that tree up only to take it down a couple of weeks later.  The fact is, I have always loved Christmas.  The lights, all the beautiful tones of...
