10/28/11 On lunch break while on set today doing some background/doubling. I am writing because I just finished both books I was reading. One was Ivanna Chubbuck’s The Power of the Actor and the other was Gidget’s true story which I actually met her and she signed it. The acting book was very good. It outlines twelve steps and they just make sense to me. And Gidget was just a fun easy read. It is truly funny as I sit here in the middle of a town square with shops, restaurants, homes, benches and cars, and to know that it is all fake and I am actually just at Warner Brothers Studios. Too funny. But the bugs are real and I feel like I am getting bitten so I am going back inside…Now back inside, much better. No bugs and I just got a cup of hot coffee. Waiting for our next scene to shoot and hopefully will be finished around 6:00 p.m. or earlier. We are heading out for a friend’s birthday tonight. I am Sleeping Beauty tomorrow. And then we are heading to Big Bear to stay in a cabin with some friends and go to their Oktoberfest complete with costume contest. My Cheetarah costume is now complete and so is Joe’s Liono costume. I am sad that we are not in Columbus for Halloween because it was always such an event for us each year. No trick or treat and no annual Halloween party for us this year. But I am excited for our trip and making way for new annual traditions. Perhaps this year a Christmas party since we will be back in town and of course it would have to have a theme!
