I did run to the Post Office right after work this morning, and they are getting to know me in there now. I've been there three times in the past week, about the same time of the morning, and this morning when I went in we were all joking around since there were very few customers around. I like it when I start to get to know people someplace and they start to get to know me. I moved around so much in my 20s that I didn't have much of a sense of community, and I missed that after having lived in the same town for so many years as a kid/teenager. Now, I check out at the grocery store and they know me, I walk into Starbucks and they start fixing my drink without me saying what it is, and now they know me at the Post Office. It's a good thing. LA may be a big city, but most of my world here is pretty small!
Anne stopped by tonight as I was getting ready to leave for my meeting - she has a cold (again!) and wanted me to massage her back and neck for a few minutes. She's been coughing like crazy and her muscles were knotted up pretty well. We're going to the chiropractor together on Friday - when gas is $2.15+ a gallon, you share when you can! (And another benefit of having your best friend living in the same building as you!)
The actor's network meeting I went to last night was great - it was with a manager who I've met a couple of times before (see? that world is small!) at various events. He's delightful, and had some great stories to share with us, as well as some good thoughts on when to get a manager and what to look for in a manager. Well worth the time to go to the meeting!
Tomorrow morning I'll be up late - have to go register for another submission forum (to submit my headshot to acting jobs!) and then I HAVE to do laundry.
Still eating lightly today - it's been so hot here, I just don't feel like eating. I've got a salad with shrimp in it for lunch tonight. And I'm drinking lots of water. The lamb I bought last weekend is languishing in my freezer. Seems too heavy right now!
