I didn't sleep well today - remembered to turn the phone off, but forgot to turn the answering machine down. Once I was really asleep, it was fine, but a couple calls came in before I was completely out, which of course then keeps me awake that much longer.
I got up around 6pm, and went to see "Monster". Wow. Incredible movie, and Charlize Theron was amazing. Complete transformation! And Christina Ricci was great, too. The story is not a happy one, but is very powerful. I sat through the movie essentially stunned by the quality of the acting and the film. I found it very inspiring that Charlize Theron was so willing to undergo such a physical transformation for the movie - she gained 20-30 pounds, had lots of her hair plucked out to make it look thinner, had prosthetic teeth, and hardly any eyebrows. Didn't even look like she could have been the SISTER of the glowing, gorgeous woman who went to the Oscars. I wonder how far I'd be willing to go for a role like that. Gaining weight isn't a problem for me - pass the wheat! But losing it is, and having to lose 30 pounds (again) scares me. I'm still trying to lose the rest of the weight from when I broke my leg last year! I've been working out and eating well for the last 6 months, and have made great strides, but I STILL have 10-12 pounds to go.
Anne is finally back from her housesitting job, so we got together for a little bit tonight- I'd missed her! I'm glad she's back - we see each other nearly daily, and seeing her cats every morning just wasn't the same as seeing her!
Tonight before work I made some carrot ginger juice. It smells wonderful, and I'm probably going to drink it at my break here in a few minutes. Yummy. Also made some more grapefruit juice. Hopefully one of them will help me stay awake, because I'm sleepy tonight. I'll be so glad when I don't have to have a 'survival' job and I am acting for a living! All in due time....
