Yay! Last day of NaBloPoMo! I've made it. I wish I could say I've posted some great posts this month. Mostly I've just scribbled some thoughts on this blog and hit Publish. Someday I will get my crap together and actually spend some time on my writing.

Dinner last night was awesome. We got home late, so The Boyfriend and I slept in a little bit and got up to go for another hour long walk. I'm writing this as he's cooking dinner and in a couple of hours we will do another workout of 30 Day Shred. Tonight is a big night, we're going to try Level 2, I feel pretty ready for it. Should be interesting to see how sore I will be tomorrow!

I re-stained the top of our coffee tables today as The Boyfriend finished a freelance editing project. They are still downstairs, I can't remember to go get them before we go to bed.

I'm still learning our new camera. It's pretty amazing what it can do. The Boyfriend spent some time going over things with me and explaining them further. This is a whole new world for me, pretty fascinating stuff. Now we're talking about getting a laptop so I can learn Photoshop and really have some fun taking photos. None of this will happen until after the new year and The Boyfriend gets some more work.

Dinner's ready, so I'm off! Happy Last Day of NaBloPoMo!

Okay, I am very happy to report that Yogurtland definitely lived up to all of Lauren's hype! They have so many flavors and you get to add your own toppings! Then you pay by the ounce, so it was about $1.50 cheaper than Pinkberry for The Boyfriend and I. I wish it was closer, I would definitely go more, so for the time being, Pinkberry still has my heart. But Yogurtland was awesome and a great find!

Dinner was so much fun, I can now say with certainty that I've had London Broil. Also, Lauren's Pistachio Basil Butter was seriously yummy. I'm still thinking about it this morning! I really want to make some. 

It was really nice to hang out with Jimmy and Lauren - we played "Mall Madness" and "Apples to Apples" - which I've never played before and I totally loved it. Very fun.

Now I'm off to bed, it's WAY past my bedtime! And I'm barely getting this post in on time.

Not much to report today as The Boyfriend and I spent all day goofing around and getting a little work done. I'm so loving this mini vacation in my apartment.

Tomorrow we are going to Jimmy and Lauren's place for dinner. We've never been there before, so it should be fun! Also, we're going to Yogurtland to try some of their frozen yogurt that Lauren is always talking about! Also, we're going to introduce them to the most awesome board game ever, Mall Madness, which is going to be great!

I'm off to watch more movies and eat brownies filled with peanut butter.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone! The Boyfriend and I have stuffed ourselves silly - and spent the day laying around and watching movies, it's been a really awesome day. I hope everyone was able to spend the day with their loved ones and had time to give thanks for whatever they are thankful for.

I can't even begin to list everything I'm thankful for  - so I'm just going to say I'm thankful for everything and everyone in my life and leave it at that.

It finally rained last night/this morning. I love the rain in LA, it happens so infrequently that I really enjoy it when it happens.

Work today was pretty laid back, we only worked until 1, then I went and ran a couple of errands and came home. The Boyfriend and I took a nap (awesome!) and just now we finished making our first Sweet Potato Pie. We're both so looking forward to Thanksgiving tomorrow! A day of just the two of us, eating, relaxing - hopefully we will get to go for a run in the morning before all the eating commences!

Today, I ran into Gelsons to pick up a loaf of bread - they had Orowheat on sale 2 loaves for $7, but when the cashier rang them up, they rang at their normal price. I asked about the sale price and she called a manager to do a price check. He came back and said I was absolutely right, apologized and said he would give me a loaf for free and the other one at the reduced price. I thanked him profusely and paid and left. Yay me! Yay free bread!

Now I'm off to watch Disc 2 of "John Adams"! Have you seen this? It's freaking fantastic!

I'm still waiting for the rain to start that they promised. It was drizzling a little bit earlier, but no big showers like I was hoping for.

Today was such a chill day at work. I took a bit of a long lunch and went to visit Kathy and Lisa. We walked around Beverly Hills and went in a few shops. It was such fun to see hang with them and get caught up. I got to give Lisa her birthday present (yes, it was late, I'm not a good planner it seems), but I was really happy to see that she liked the earrings so much.

The biggest news today is that the Christmas present that The Boyfriend and I bought each other arrived today. We bought a new digital camera, a Canon Rebel Xsi and 2 lenses (a telephoto and a wide angle lens). We've wanted a nice camera for such a long time, and The Boyfriend had some freelance money come in, so we went ahead and got it now. It's freaking awesome. The Boyfriend has not stopped playing with it since I got home. I guess I'm really going to get used to having my picture taken! I will post some photos soon as I need to spend some time playing around with it myself, otherwise there will be no photos of The Boyfriend (as he pointed out).

So yeah, exciting times around here. We just got done doing 30 Day Shred. I LOVE that workout video, more than I could ever imagine loving a workout DVD. I feel so awesome when I get done with it, it's definitely worth the $10. I need to feel awesome as I've gained about 7 pounds since July. I guess I need to really get serious about losing weight again. Ugh. Why can't this be easier? I'm really sick of being the girl on a diet. I want to get to a healthy weight and then just be able to spend my time focusing on something else.

Today was pretty cool, especially for a Monday. 

My run this morning was pretty awesome. 

I got a free coffee at the coffee cart due to a mistake they made and I have no boss this week, so work is fairly light.

I went to lunch with a friend and had a great time. Also, a chocolate chip pizookie, which was fabulous.

I ate a light dinner due to overeating at lunch and then let Jillian kick my butt with 30 Day Shred.

And now we are watching the cutest Polar Bear story on PBS. Seriously, there is nothing cuter than a baby polar bear.

I'm off to bed soon. If it's not raining, we are running in the morning. Then a lunchtime walk with Kathy and Lisa - which I am so looking forward to!

Last night I forgot to write about the actual drive to Ikea. When we got on the freeway, we noticed it was kind of foggy, which of course meant people were driving like crap.

Once we got on the freeway it was so cool! Because of the fog, you couldn't see any of the city off of the freeway, so it was like the freeway existed and nothing else. I kept thinking of the Dr. Who episode with the people stuck on the freeway system for ever, it was so cool and kind of creepy.

Today was spent lazing around some more. We had big plans to get things done and while we did accomplish some of the plans, a lot of them were chucked out the window for a much longer nap than we originally planned and some more time to just hang. I feel like my soul has been replenished.

Also, I can't wait for it to be Thanksgiving! We have so many good food items purchased already and I'm trying to be good until then!

Now I'm off to get ready for my 1/2 week of work. Thursday can't come soon enough!

Saturday, November 22, 2008

Twenty Two

The Boyfriend and I spent today lazing around the apartment, well, I guess by lazing around I mean, we got up at 6:30 am, went for a long walk, made breakfast, lazed around watching movies (John Adams is PHENOMENAL!), The Boyfriend captured some footage for a freelance project, I puttered around for awhile, we did 30 Day Shred and then went to Ikea and Chili's for a very late dinner.

Ikea was very productive, we found The Boyfriend a new office chair, which is so cool. He's needed a new chair for awhile now and we finally settled on one that was comfortable and had adjustable arms - which are a necessity for someone who records music at home.

As I type this, The Boyfriend is putting together his new chair and "Law & Order : SVU" is playing on the TV (the old lady from "The Happening" is playing an attorney!).

Well, The Boyfriend has started swearing, so I'm off to help put the chair together!

I keep forgetting that today's Friday. At least when I remember, I'm excited all over again.

I had a luncheon today as my floor won an award for our Fire Drill (I think it was at the end of September).

Anyway, they didn't tell us ahead of time which floor had won what award, like they usually do, so it was pretty fun to look forward to finding out. Turns out my floor (most especially the Floor Wardens) won "The Bravest" Award, an award they hadn't given in over 4 years - for the floor with the best and fastest Fire Drill and Floor Wardens. It was a huge honor and we were quite surprised. Top that with a catered lunch and today was pretty damn awesome.

Thursday, November 20, 2008


I don't have much to report today. It's Thursday and I'm really looking forward to not having any plans this weekend. The Boyfriend and I really need a weekend of laying around and getting things done - plus it's not hot this weekend which will make everything much better.

We're getting "John Adams" from Netflix this weekend. I can't wait to watch it.

I think that's all today. I made plans to walk at lunch next Tuesday with Kathy and Lisa, which will be awesome. I never get to see them anymore and really miss walking with them during lunch.

Wednesday, November 19, 2008


We just got back from a Pinkberry event! I signed up for Pinkberry emails a couple of weeks ago, thinking they would send coupons or something. Imagine my surprise when I received an email asking if I wanted to RSVP to a Pinkberry event for the launch of their new flavor. I signed up, signed up The Boyfriend as my guest and left it at that.

This afternoon, I remembered that the event was tonight! I can't believe I almost forgot to go to the event that was purely free samples and a cool t-shirt.

So, we drove down to El Segundo, signed in, got our hands stamped (we're both OK), tried the new flavor (several times!) (Pomegranate, YUMMY!) and got my free t-shirt. Unfortunately, The Boyfriend did not get a shirt since I was the one signed up for the event. Then we were asked some questions about what we thought of the new flavor and the event in general. It was actually a lot of fun. There were some obvious Pinkberry corporate people there, I chatted with a few, let them know how much I loved the new flavor and then headed home.
It was a fun way to spend a Wednesday night! Thanks so much Pinkberry!

Oh, and The Boyfriend signed up for their emails as well, so he can get a cool shirt next time. Ha!

Here's the stamps, letting everyone know that we're OK!
I'm not sure if it's really funny or really inappropriate for me to be wearing a shirt that says "Share The Goodness" across my chest... Okay, we all know that's really funny!

1. Finally got my flu shot today. Everyone trying to give me some sort of illness at work can now suck it.

2. Losing weight has odd side effects. I can now fit into shoes I haven't been able to wear in several years. Today I wore a pair of brown loafers that are so comfortable now that I've lost weight, it's crazy. That and the boots I wore the other day, it's like I got 2 new pairs of shoes and all I had to do was shop my own closet!

3. I can not stop these freaking headaches. The weather lately is TERRIBLE! I stopped going to acupuncture after my emergency root canal and subsequent amount of money I had to pay to my dentist. Now I think I need to start going again, if nothing else, it makes me nice and relaxed which will at least help me deal with these headaches.

4. I wore a new pair of grey pants to work today. I lurve them! They will be my new "Monday Pants" (a phrase I stole from Kathy). Monday pants are those pants that always fit well and are easy to make an outfit with, therefore you wear them on Mondays, the day when you're mad that you have to go to work, so having an easy outfit to throw together on Monday mornings makes life a lot easier. Bon, n'est pas?

5. Thanksgiving is next week, which means Christmas is only like thirty-some odd days away. Man, where the heck did this year go?

Monday, November 17, 2008


Wow, taking today off of work was the best idea ever. I'm finally starting to feel better and I got to spend another day hanging out with The Boyfriend. Well, I hung out while he worked on an editing project.

So, back to work tomorrow. At least I'm looking forward to it now that I've had some downtime.

I'm so happy the winds have changed direction, my head is not hurting today. Man yesterday was rough - there is nothing worse than waking up with a migraine.

I'm off to watch TV with The Boyfriend and decide if I want to do 30 Day Shred tonight.

Sunday, November 16, 2008


Ugh, I don't know if it's the wine I drank last night or the horrible air from the fires, but I woke up this morning with a terrible migraine. I couldn't eat, could barely drink anything and just felt like crap. I slept in until 9, which is quite late for me, and when I got up, I pretty much parked myself on the couch. The Boyfriend was so wonderful about taking care of me.

Around lunch I finally ate something and it stayed down, so I was able to take some migraine medicine. Now I'm feeling pretty good, which usually happens when the headache goes away. Although, I feel like the stupid headache could come back at any moment, so I'm trying to get some things done around the house while I still can. I know that seems weird, but when the migraine goes away, I usually get a huge rush of energy.

Although right now, I'm trying to eat enough to make up for the fact that I've really not eaten anything today. I barely ate lunch and now that it's dinner time, I've eaten dinner, a dessert and I'm still hungry. At least I have tomorrow off of work, I can get some more things done while The Boyfriend works on his freelance project. 

Saturday, November 15, 2008


Okay, so I have no idea why people were so down on "Get Smart". I loved it. I thought the humor was very dry and witty, the casting was great and the story was very fun. Steve Carell was brilliant. 

I'm writing this while I wait for The Boyfriend to get ready. We're heading to a birthday part for David, whom we haven't seen in forever. I'm so excited to go and see him and everyone there, it should be a good group of people.

So, I'm off to figure out if what I'm wearing is going to be cool enough as it's ridiculously hot here. Seriously, anyone that thinks global warming isn't true should just look at the fact that it is so damn hot here in California. Between the weather and the fires, my allergies are going crazy and I've been getting headaches every day. I'm taking Monday off of work so I can just relax and get a few personal things done - mostly to take a nap too and just try to feel better.

Friday, November 14, 2008


Another late post. The Boyfriend and I just got home from running errands, which sounds painful, but it was actually quite fun as we got some stuff done and I love nothing more than checking things off of my "to-do" list.

I had the weirdest thing happen to me at lunch today. I was waiting in line to pay for my lunch and humming to myself (probably "Devil and the Deep Blue Sea", but it could also have been "Witchcraft" - I've had these 2 songs stuck in my head all week) and the guy in front of me turns around and asks if I'm a singer. I say yes, he asks what I like to sing, I say everything. During the conversation, he asks if I write music, I say no, but my boyfriend does. Turns out he writes R&B songs and says has had some on TV. He asks me if I have a card, I say no, do you? He digs through and finds one, asks me more about what type of music my Boyfriend writes, we chat a few minutes more and he leaves, letting me know I should make sure and have my boyfriend call or email him.

Seriously, weirdest thing I have ever had happen to me while waiting in line.

Now I'm off to watch "Get Smart" and eat some popcorn!

Thursday, November 13, 2008


Wow, I'm writing this late. Too many things going on, too much to do, so little time in the day.

I tried to take today off of work, but was denied. I'm obviously not happy about it as I was really planning on having today off, but there is a chance I can take Monday off, so I'm keeping my hopes up about that.

I went to a new restaurant today at lunch - Jack Sprats. I tried Sweet Potato Fries for the first time, man were they ever good. Not as heavy or greasy as normal french fries and a ton more flavor. Now I understand why people online make sweet potato fries for themselves at home!

Wow, I'm suddenly exhausted. I feel bad for posting this as a post as I've really written nothing of interest. I have all of these stories that I've been saving in my head for NaBloPoMo and yet every day I find myself scraping together a post and throwing it online. Maybe this weekend I will finaly find the time to sit down and write something of interest.

Right after I get done cleaning and returning things to Target and finding some new pants at Old Navy and going to a friends birthday party and all the other things on my to do list.

Now I'm even more tired.

Wednesday, November 12, 2008


Oh man, getting up today was hard. My head is still hurting, but as long as it doesn't turn into a migraine, I can deal.

I was able to talk The Boyfriend into not grocery shopping last night - which was easy since he'd just received a new piece of electronics for recording music and he wanted more time to stay home and play with it. I love it when he gets like that, because he spends a good portion of the night playing music for me and it's too rare for him to do this anymore. When we first started dating, he used to play the guitar and sing to me all the time and I miss it. Our lives get too busy and it takes something like a new piece of equipment for us to slow down and just enjoy hanging around, singing together (when I know the song he's playing, which isn't very often- we have different tastes in music) or me just enjoying his singing and guitar playing. It's nice to be able to have a night like that. One that I can appreciate because it's been awhile.

Which means tonight we HAVE to go to the store. Oh well, it should be a quick trip.

On another note, I'm in desperate need of new pants. I ordered some from Old Navy, but, they look HUGE once I got them out of the package. Maybe I've dropped a size? I don't know how that would have happened since the scale hasn't moved. We'll see tonight when I get home and can actually try things on.


I saw the movie "Slumdog Millionaire" today. I went in with no great expectations, not knowing much about the movie. Man, it's been a long time since a movie really moved me like that. And it's not like it's the greatest story ever told, it's just a good story told well, with really amazing actors and directing.

Please check for this movie, it's such a great ride. I was in a pretty packed house and everyone was laughing, crying and applauded at the end. I love being a part of a crowd when the movie is so good that everyone is having the same reactions at the same time.

I have the worse headache this afternoon. I really hate this time of year in LA, the temperature bouncing back and forth really does a number on my allergies. Plus, I think I'm still fighting off the cold that The Boyfriend had last week. We're supposed to go grocery shopping tonight and then do "30 Day Shred". I'm hoping I can convince him to forego shopping for 1 more night and just stay home instead.

Also, it's Veterans Day. I wrote this last year, I still feel the same way. I'm so proud of my father for serving his country. A very good friend of mine has her brother over in Iraq right now and I'm sending him good thoughts and wishes for a safe journey home, whenever that may be.

Monday, November 10, 2008


Wow, I'm doing pretty good today considering how busy this weekend was and the fact that I walked in this morning with several fires to be put out at work. Not literal fires, of course, things like peoples food has "disappeared" from the fridge again, I have to set up a conference call for people in 3 different countries, my boss mentioned I'm going to get my review today and by the way, did I happen to have a copy of the last review I was given.

Luckily, I got everything handled just before lunch and met The Boyfriend for a walk. Man did I need that. No exercise really does make me a tired girl. Plus it was nice out with an awesome wind that really made it feel like fall.

This afternoon I got my review, no surprises there which made me happy and now I am completely crashing. Oh yeah, I had to order a new hard drive for the show, which I just got ordered.

The only thing that helps me make it through this last part of the day is that I have no plans for this evening. The Boyfriend and I get to just sit around and relax. Maybe actually have some time to enjoy each others company (nudge, nudge). I have no idea why I felt the need to share that with you, but I did, so deal with it.

I guess that's all. Man am I tired now. Why does this last hour of work drag on so slowly?

Sunday, November 09, 2008


I'm sitting here waiting for an actor to show up to film something for our next episode, so I figured I should get my post in for today. I'm pretty exhausted, so this will be somewhat of a mish-mash (more so than usual).

Man, this has been a long week. Every day around 4:30 time seems to stand still. It makes the last part of the day almost unbearable. And yet, it flew by.

I spent a few hours today riding in a car (and by riding I mean hiding in the way back of a friends small SUV) reading a script and feeding lines to actors that were driving, or sitting in the passenger seat with someone basically sitting in their lap with a camera. It was great fun, especially since I'm someone that doesn't get carsick, so the constant movement and reading didn't bother me in the slightest. 

I'm finishing this post after we are completely done for the night. I am exhausted, the apartment is a mess and needs to be cleaned from top to bottom, I just ate breadsticks for dinner, but I am happy and ready for bed.

Now begins a new week at work. Hopefully I can get up and run tomorrow, I could really use the exercise!

Saturday, November 08, 2008


I can't believe how much my feet hurt right now. We just got done filming for today, well about an hour ago we got done filming. I've taken a shower and had a snack, now I'm ready to try and relax before heading to bed.

Our extras were amazing today, it was a really awesome to spend the day with them, playing. 

I'm so tired, I'm not sure I'm even thinking straight. It was MUCH warmer than expected, so I'm sure I'm a bit sunburnt. It's a good thing I use sunscreen as my lotion every day, I was much better off than most people out in the sun.

I guess that's all. I'm seriously so tired. Tomorrow is going to come way too soon. But at least it's a much lighter day of filming, I get to spend most of it riding around in a car and making sure people are saying their lines right!

Friday, November 07, 2008


What a difference a day makes! I feel so much better than yesterday. The Boyfriend joined me for lunch yesterday and today, both days we walked for just over an hour, as fast as possible.

Oh yeah, exercise is definitely what I needed. Now if I could just get this headache to go away, I'd be feeling pretty good.

We have to run some errands this evening, but nothing too time consuming. And then we will have a chance to just relax before another weekend of shooting.

Someone asked me what we were doing for Thanksgiving today and I realized we have no idea. We'll be here, which is a change for us. I guess if we get invited somewhere we will go, but if not, we'll probably cook a Turkey at home, which we've actually never done! We've cooked turkeys, just never at our apartment. I'm looking forward to having several days off of work and plenty of time to do nothing but watch movies and maybe finish re-finishing some coffee tables.

Ah Thanksgiving, you feel so far away right now.

Thursday, November 06, 2008


It's been a hell of a day. Nothing terrible, just a constant busy-ness that I can't seem to get a handle on.

I hate it when I feel off my game at work, like I'm treading water. It's been a long time since I've felt that way at this job. Although, I did find something that no one else could find, so that makes me feel better, more like the old me, the problem solver, the one who can find the answers.

Tonight I have a line-through rehearsal, which I'm looking forward to. And I need to do a load of laundry to make sure my costume is clean for this weekend. Exciting stuff, yeah?

I've only run once this week, which I think is adding to the feeling of being off my game. The Boyfriend has been sick (and he never gets sick) so we've been sleeping in and being lazy. Although I really need to get off my ass and get back to seriously losing weight, I feel okay about this week, not stressing out about the eating and sleeping, mostly because I have a touch of whatever The Boyfriend has so I feel like sleeping a lot myself.

But next week? Next week is going to be a whole new story as I begin my countdown to going home at Christmas and my need to lose a big chunk of weight before I do.

Wednesday, November 05, 2008


Hello! Today has been pretty sucktacular and this post will all be too much information. 

First I had a little "early visitor" at work, of course and I had no supplies AT ALL. I asked around and no one had anything either. I found a big huge pad sample stupid thing that I had thrown in my desk as a  just in case I ever need this. 

Everything was just a bit off today. Then The Boyfriend called to tell me that there were big problems with some of the stuff we filmed for the sitcom last weekend.


The best part of the day was going to Target with Minerva. At least I got a chance to just wander around and browse while still getting everything off of my list.

I just feel like I'm running out of time this week. We've got so much stuff to get done before Saturday where we will spend all day filming on location. We're pretty good to go, but there are always odds and ends to finalize before filming. Like extras. And food. And props. And getting my costume washed from last weekend. And dealing with work. And early monthly visitors.

Tuesday, November 04, 2008


I can't believe how freaking tired I am. I fell asleep on the couch last night around 8:30, woken up a couple of times by The Boyfriend laughing at the Saturday Night Live stuff - and finally woke up around 10:30 pm sweating my ass off.

I called it a night and went to bed, only to wake up this morning around 6:30. The sad thing is, I'm not as sick as The Boyfriend is. But maybe that's why I'm sleeping so much, I'm really trying to fight this crap off.

All I know is that my chest and throat hurt.


I'm not sure my little heart is sturdy enough to make it through tonite. Already when I look at the results coming in, my heart starts pounding.

Maybe I'll mix a couple of drinks when I get home from work. Alcohol's good for colds, right?

Monday, November 03, 2008


Apparently I'm getting sick. Which sucks. I have this week to feel better and then Saturday I have a full day of filming on location (with extra's and everything!) that will make it quite the full day.


I knew this was coming. I've run myself ragged these past 2 weeks and I had a feeling I would probably get sick after the first weekend of filming. But I was hopeful I wouldn't as I still got plenty of sleep this weekend and made sure to drink lots of water.

Alas, it did not help. The only updside is that I'm never sick for that long and I am not nearly as sick as The Boyfriend is already. We have no plans tonight so I will park myself on the couch and get some rest.

Day 2

I'm still so freaking tired. This daylight change is killing me. I want to go to bed and it's only 6:30 pm!! Getting up to run tomorrow had better be easy darnit.

So, filming went really well this weekend. Today was nice as we had a handful of short scenes to film, so everything was laid back. 

We finished filming our outdoor scene yesterday JUST as it started raining. Like, I felt a raindrop hit me literally 30 seconds before we finished the scene. As soon as Robb called "CUT" I let everyone know I had felt a raindrop and we started running inside. Literally, as the door closed, the skies opened up and it began POURING down rain. And we even had some Thunder! Rain happens so little around here, we had to pull everyone away from the window to finish filming. Man, you just don't have timing like that very often, so it was pretty amazing.

I'm off to find some dinner and watch some "Torchwood".

Saturday, November 01, 2008

Day One

Welcome to NaBloPoMo 2008! 

I'm up early to get ready for our first day of filming for episode 8 of Life From The Inside. It's been quite awhile since we've filmed a full episode, so I'm a little excited and nervous. I have some scenes where I really drive the dialogue, which is a little different for my character.

Anyhoo, it's supposed to rain today, so we'll see what happens as of course we're supposed to film 1 scene outside. 

I'm freaking tired and waiting for the coffee to finish brewing. I've already had some mini chocolate donuts and now I need some coffee to get this sugar rush really going.
