I don't usually participate, but since I had the opportunity to go first this year (read- before the water gets dirty and spitty) I decided to throw my head in the bucket and give it a try.
I think she gave up then, but at least she tried!

I'm going to attempt to actually make all the posts that I've been meaning to make for the last week tonight. But I'll try to break them up into individual ideas. (I don't know why I actually wrote this rather than just do it... but I'll go with it) I feel like I'm alternating from utter exhaustion/crazed anxiety with how busy I've been keeping myself since Caleb left. On that note: he gets back in 5 days! They are in Kansas City, MO tonight- Tulsa, Oklahoma tomorrow.

I had a second to get on the computer at Makaya's house and just wanted to say that I'm having a great visit! I'm going to confiscate the camera from Caleb for the duration of his tour (he only took 1 picture in the whole 3 weeks!) and bring it back with me, so I'll have tons of pictures to load up when I get back. Including... our family's annual Halloween party! Caleb was peppermint patty- he looked AMAZING!

Tawny and I drove up to Auburn Ca this weekend to see Elise and her sweet new baby girl, Ella-Jean. Auburn is an old gold rush town and it was just beautiful. I wish we had more time to explore the town. I would really like to pan for gold sometime. I think I did it at the duQuoin state fair once in IL. I am not sure, but I sort of have a memory of it.
This was the only picture I snapped of Ella at dinner Saturday night. I love how she kept her hands folded while she slept. I think she looks a lot like Elise. Just off camera to my right, sat Jasper, who pulled and pulled and pulled at my shirt/arm/shoulder trying to climb up out of his highchair to get a look at this sleeping baby. He was so curious and pretty strong for 9 months!
After a short visit with Elise, we jumped in the car and drove the two hours to San Francisco.
Since it was Tawny's first time, we drove down the crookedy street which wasn't as scary as the first time I drove down it last year.
We also drove over the Golden Gate bridge, then turned around, stopped at the lookout and took pictures. This one of Jasper was the only halfway decent one I got with my camera phone. Tawny took one of me, but I look almost deformed, so I will not be posting it.

Coming out on October 10th- This one I had to attend several production and extra's meetings for. I only booked 1 day (obviously due to the subject matter... there weren't a bunch of extras in it). I couldn't tell you if it is any good, as I didn't actually read the script. This might be for netflix.
Releasing on Halloween (ooh spooky)- I did actually read the script for this one... Wouldn't say that you should run out and see this one, but it could be alright I guess, depending on how certain scenes were shot... If you do see it though, keep a look out for the kids at the school and the party... yep- that was my work.
And lastly... also releasing on Halloween night. I am really hoping we get invited to the crew screening on this one. I recommend seeing this, if not for the story line, which I am hoping was done well by Mr Eastwood, but for the amazing late 20's-30's look. This was possibly one of the most challenging projects for me creatively and well worth it. Stepping on that set was like stepping back in time. Working on this movie reminded me why I wanted to work in the movies to begin with. It was magical.
Also quick update- I did NOT win the cookie contest. My partner on the above movie, Tony, won the contest with a "kitchen sink cookie." I will be a gracious loser and say I am sure that his cookies were good, but will also note that I had no idea which cookie was which once they were broken into pieces on my plate (all the chocolate chip varieties were similar tasting). I was told by many people that my cookies were the best, so that is enough for me. Plus, since I am planning to be out of town this weekend, I am glad I don't have to stress about whipping up another batch before Monday.
