You can always tell what day it will be when you almost choke on your breakfast!

Granted…it was pretty dry toast with peanut butter and I was walking fast down the subway platform while stuffing my face when it happened!

But, in the midst of choking, I was thinking…how do you give yourself “The Maneuver” with no chair or something to lean against? On the Subway platform? And when pregnant??!! I don’t know….relying on the folks that were nearby may have been a flop I tell you! (Sidenote: I can’t think of the Heimlich Maneuver without thinking of Eddie Izzard – too funny!)

Thankfully all good after a major coughing attack!

Oh Monday, Monday!

And yes it continued to be that kind of Monday after I choked on my toast….it’s an uphill battle after that 🙂

BUT…amid the Monday blues I get a text from my older brother announcing the birth of their new son little Phillipos!! I get to be Auntie to another cutie pie that I can’t wait to meet 🙂 So that makes SIX boys and ONE girl from my sister and brother combined! We got ourselves a whole football team and one cheerleader 🙂

I wonder if my addition will make it to SEVEN or TWO??!!

I was thinking early this morning as I lay in bed, about last night, and then other nights over the past few months…

I was at my friend’s birthday party at a bar last night, drinking my ordered seltzer, my good ol’ seltzer – actually I love seltzer – but many people asked me what I was drinking and did I miss alcohol, did I miss drinking, and was that joke joke vodka haha!

And this has happened a lot.

And, yes I am known for my tequila.

And, yes I drink, and perhaps never not drink when I am out.

And, yes maybe I am a lightweight so get tipsy or drunk after like one or two drinks.

And, yes maybe I never stop at one or two drinks but just keep on truckin’

And, yes maybe I am known for my drunken crazy like dancing on bars and stunts like drunken breakdancing or push-ups with clapping in the middle which results in something like breaking my thumb. And perhaps back in my “wild days” being quite the player slash tease slash extrovert.

(And, perhaps I still am……shhhhh)

And, maybe I have never been at a party or out and actually been sober.



Is that why I keep getting asked if I miss drinking? And how am I able to cope without a drink??

Alcho, was I??


No worries everyone – soon there will be a baby on my hip at the bar, as I always said there would be when the time came 🙂

And, maybe I wasn’t kidding…

Not much today actually.

I waited for the mail to see how it would dictate my day and weekend. And….still nothing. Still no green card 😦

So, since I was still here then I felt guilty so had to attend my “If-I-am-still-here” plans I had tentatively made in case I was. But I got to see my good friend from the UK again, and go to my friend’s birthday and see others there – so there was a silver lining to being here 🙂

It just feels weird.

You know what else feels weird? That it’s my birthday next week!!! I thought it was in two weeks or something!!!! I wasn’t supposed to be here for it so I guess I just blanked out what date it is and how that is in relation to when my birthday is.

Or it’s a part of my denial….of everything!

I like how I explained to Stuart in the cab home that I had no clue it was my birthday next week, just forgot it was coming up so soon, and Stuart said:

“You’ll only be 31 years young” – implying that the age is why I have a problem and forgot it. And I thought about it. Yeah, 31 I guess is a little ugh but…

“I think I have bigger things to worry about!” I said. Which is TRUE!!!!!!!!

SO TRUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rough Night.

The usual waking up every half hour or so pregnancy schedule thing, but while I was on snooze this morning as had a hard time getting up I was so tired and feeling funny, I kept dozing back to the same weird twisted dream. I can’t remember all of it and some parts were C-R-A-Z-Y!! But the bottom line was me trying to get to the airport to leave for the UK not being able to….would you fancy that!! I remember the last part before I finally had to get up to make it into work.

In a taxi.

Woke up.

Taxi was too expensive so now on my moped.

Woke up.

Realized it was a different airport and I didn’t know the way.

Woke up.

Left my moped and about to get in another taxi when he said we may not make it, but I said we had to try, and then realized my suitcase had been left in the first taxi.

Woke up.

Trying to find my moped again and realized these thugs on the road had stolen it for parts and wanted the key now from me, which was about to get violent….

Woke up. Got up.

And there was some weird stuff along the way and before and ugh.

Methinks this is a reflection of my life right now??!!! Waiting for my Green Card in the mail every day as my time slot to leave shortens when there’s nothing there.


Just a theory 🙂

Annoying day, really. I had a hard time this morning – wasn’t feeling so good. And I am just soooo tired! Had a long day yesterday but I finally managed to get to Destination Maternity for some sleeping maternity bras. So that was finally accomplished only a few months late! I was hoping it would make me miraculously sleep better – not sure why I thought that, but I’m hoping ANYTHING will help me sleep!

I will have to go back to Destination Maternity, as had limited time and was overwhelmed! Made friends with the salesperson though as she just arrived to NYC three months ago and wants to be an actor…so naturally I offered my wisdom haha! Made the conversations all about that and not the maternity wear she was helping me with!! Way to deflect from reality Zoe!!!

Destination Maternity. It should be a musical or something. “Come inside…”

Yup, I’m super tired!!!

It’s grey outside. Rain. Again.

And in here I feel like I’m going through menopause!! Sweater off. Too cold so sweater on. Too hot, sweater off again! You can tell what kind of day I am having when my video upload is staplers talking to each other!! HAHA!!

I needed to get things done in the office today as yesterday was a disaster with getting home after midnight and not being done with my 365!!

So I have done it before, done my dance of the day in my office – had some people pass, but today was crazy!! Soooo many people passed!! And there was people visiting people next to me, and others coming to say hello! Did they all get a memo to come and interrupt the girl called Zoe who is trying to sneakily dance her 365 criteria in her office??!!!

I’m stupid though as I chose a super long song! Why oh why! So there was a lot of stoping and pretending to be doing work!!

This of course inspired my video upload 🙂

Surprise surprise – busy day!! Had work, where I was training two people, then rehearsal, then a presentation at The Actors Studio, then a production meeting for a project I’m co-producing  but also was cast in as an understudy for one of the celebrity roles, and then trivia, where I had planned to leave early, but just got home now! NON-STOP!!!

Well, I was supposed to have left tonight “on a jet plane” or tomorrow morning at least, but still a-waiting on me green card argh (said of course in Pirate language!!…not sure why…wow, I must be super tired!) Apparently I still have 19 official days left in which they can still send it to me before we can have an investigation. So it’s still a waiting game. I only have until May 7th otherwise I don’t have a break until sometime in June with the projects I am involved with 😦

I’m exhausted 😦 It has been non-stop since before the summer last year with the wedding planning, wedding, plays and projects, and then not being able to leave the country…

Caribbean anyone?
