Okay, folks, I know you're out there! I was just wondering what y'all would like me to write more about - or LESS! I'm trying to keep it relatively balanced between the life of an actor working on her career in LA, the men in my life, and certainly the BTD and all health and fitness issues there, but I'd love some feedback on what you want to hear more about, so please let me know!
And now we resume our regularly scheduled programming....
Monday I ran into one of my colleagues who was just coming into work as I was leaving, not the one who expressed his feelings for me, but another one, and he asked me if I wanted to get a drink this evening. Uh, okay. Why not? So I met up with him at a Starbucks near my apartment, and he was standing outside, in the rain, waiting for me. Not even on the covered patio. Odd. And then he wanted to go to a bar and get a drink there. Normally this would have been fine, but I've had not quite 3 hours sleep today, and one drink would put me under, PLUS I have to work tonight, and don't want to drink before going to work. He pushed for that a little harder than I would have liked, but I prevailed on staying at Starbucks.
We chatted for about an hour and a half, and it just wasn't flowing. And he's nice enough, but I found out tonight that his car got stolen and he couldn't replace it because he didn't have insurance on it, he has three kids, 2 in SoCal and one in Rome, and I'm just not impressed. We had a nice conversation, but I have zero desire to see him again. I'm glad we don't work the same shift! He also told me that he 'inspects' my desk every morning just to see what I've got out, what I'm reading, etc. That kind of creeped me out a little bit. Not that I have anything there that I care about anyone seeing, but I am glad that I carry most of my stuff to and from work with me every day. And I NEVER leave anything personal out in the open. He also smokes. Ick.
I made my excuses to go home just before 9pm, and tried to sleep a little more. Didn't happen. At 10 I went downstairs to Anne's with a bowl of the lamb stew I made the other day. We watched the finale of "Average Joe: Hawaii" and got caught up a little bit. We were both bummed that she picked Gil, and we were right in assessing that he is a jerk! And we felt for Brian! I hope he keeps his heart open for the right woman. I'm not really into reality shows - Anne likes them more than I do. They are fun, though, and I will admit that "The Apprentice" holds some appeal for the MBA in me.
I desperately need sleep. I've got 8.5 hours to go until I will be in my bed again, and it won't come soon enough. For some reason, today I just could not get to sleep. My mind was racing, the cats wouldn't settle down, and the blasted phone kept ringing. Grrrrr! So I'm minimally functional right now, and I'm looking forward to a long day's rest.
Every time I got up today I ate something - I'm trying to eat whenever I'm hungry (gee, makes sense, eh?) OR when I feel blood sugar issues coming on, but it's tough since I don't have any idea when that will be, schedule-wise. So I ate some stew around 11:30, half a sausage about 2pm, SBUX at 7 pm, stew at 10 pm, and the other half of the sausage about 11:30. I've lost a couple of pounds the last couple of weeks, and whether that is from my crazy schedule, or me eating less AND eating better food, I'm not sure. I've given up all refined sugar, though it is still in my diet in the form of fruits and honey in my tea (still have a scratchy throat!). I haven't even had chocolate in DAYS, and good dark chocolate is my downfall!
