I saw a guy actively laugh, seriously laugh, you know like one of those loud belly laughs, to a comic he was reading on the subway today.

I guess because I’m not a reader that I don’t understand that. I mean, I don’t read so I’ve never had an emotional experience with a book – which is sad, I know – but I’m a why-read-the-book-when-you-can-watch-the-movie girl 🙂 Hey, I’m never disappointed in the movie version! HAHA!!

Really the only books I’ve read have been for school like psychology novels that I had to study and analyze and write papers about, or any books for my theatre training  – I mean with plays that’s different – I’ve had some emotions creep in – but still not to the extent everyone talks about or I see on the subway. I’ve literally seen people cry from reading, out in public, and that is just something foreign to me.

Now comics are just a whole other world! I never got into them or really actually ever read one – so I don’t understand having a reaction to one of those – I mean I can’t understand it with a book so not sure how I would understand it with a comic! I don’t think I’ll ever get it.

Anyone want to prove me wrong??

Who wants to give me a book??

Who wants to give me a comic??

Yesterday was a day of looking at Astoria apartments – ugh – exhausting!! I put in a quick search of cheapest two bedroom apartments for sale in Astoria, to see, as we kind of would love and prefer to stay in this area as we love Astoria – and five came up so managed to see them all yesterday!

And there is one we like but it all comes down to the friggin’ downpayment and coming up with money upfront for it…super annoying as really we can’t afford what they were asking for….

So then spent last night until late looking for listings further out in Queens that is cheaper but still have the subway nearby and still two bedrooms, and made notes on about 26 listings!

All morning I have been emailing the brokers my questions about these listings and now down to 19!! But still! This whole process is just annoying! And I am a licensed Real Estate salesperson and its still annoying!

One of the ones we liked yesterday in Astoria got an offer on it we found out and real estate moves so fast so I feel like I am in a time crunch!!! And its just building and building – you can get lost in real estate and looking and searching and questions and listings….ugh!

I wish there was some way to see all the apartments, all 19 of them left on my list, in one day without moving haha! So I can compare and  figure this out!! I need to invent a teleporter 🙂

And how to grow money on trees!!!!

Or on houses?? 🙂

I know what you are thinking? How crazy is she? Two Beatles songs in a row!! Woah!! Wowza!! She gone crazo yo!! – clearly I am after that remark!!! HAHA!! These songs both just popped up by themselves on my ipod shuffle – you think I have time to choose songs????!!!! I don’t even have time to pee!!!!!!!!!!

It must be a tribute to Stuart since he is out-of-town on work in Chicago until Saturday and The Beatles are his “thang” so perhaps the ether misses him?? Or I miss him?? Or my ipod misses him??

Soooooo…..

Crazy crazy crazy day. Crazy crazy week, or 10 days (or YEAR…don’t get me started!!)

But yet another crazy crazy day.

What is it about being so super busy and then getting MORE stuff on top of that, all at the same time?! Huh??!! When you think that it’s just not possible to get any busier and boom somehow it happens!! Things always happen at once, I know. But, this is happening a lot so somewhere there needs to be a break or a “normal” day or at least “semi-normal”….whatever that means. It just can’t be crazy EVERY day, you know??

Although, it’s starting to get to that shake-my-head-with-tight-mouthed-smile place as there just is nothing else I can do but that.

I was on my blackberry through-out the whole of rehearsal today. Literally. Sadly. I was on my blackberry so much that it died before 2pm!!!!!!!!!!!!! That’s how much!! Luckily, I thought about bringing my charger with me today otherwise I would have been screwed. The last two days it died at around 7pm so was do-able so I made sure to pack the charger on me today – and thank god I remembered!

And of course it’s just lucky that I am the queen of successful multi-tasking! Or able to be. Or also good at sneaking me doing work while in rehearsal.

Although this is actually kind of sad and frustrating to tell you the truth, as this is supposed to be an amazing opportunity for me to be working with the one and only Jose Rivera, and I’m already splitting my understudying hat with co-producing hat, and that is okay, but then to also be soooo relied upon for office work is just a little sad. It is frankly a little unfair. But I see no other way around it unfortunately. I feel too guilty, I have a new employee that just started and needs help, and rightly so, at the office when I am in rehearsal, and I am just better at dealing with the multi-tasking then my boss is and just know more or able to help out better, especially in the times of panic today!!!

Every day cannot be a crisis though, as literally over the last 10 days, it seems there is always something with a deadline, that’s life or death in nature or that is how it is presented, at work….

I can’t say ‘when will the drama stop’ as I thrive on drama being an actor 🙂 BUT….I have enough drama all over and around and coming out of my armpits (yup, crazy!) that the office drama on top, right now, is just…..like…..

No words really.

Just this…

365 ONE: day 53…Aussie Aussie Aussie!

Day 53: March 1st, 2012 = COMPLETE!!!!!

Cardio was = Walking

Dance of the Day was = “Lady Madonna” by The Beatles

Improvised Acting Video I uploaded to my other blog was = “Fast-Talking Broker”

Anything to Note =

It was the first time I crossed over the bridge on the L Train to Williamsburg since I started my 365 Challenge. It wasn’t so bad on the tip-toes. I thought it would be long, but nothing compares to that stupid R Train!! So far that is the worst and longest tip-toe experience. I want to avoid that one! However, haven’t tried them all yet.

Had to show an apartment in Brooklyn to some potential tenants and one of them was Australian. So after he came and left, I had some time before the next appointment and used the Australian as inspiration for my video upload. I became an Aussie fast-talking crazy Real Estate Broker!

I also managed to do my fitness 365 in between appointments too at the apartment, and my dance of the day. I closed myself in the bedroom and pumped out The Beatles to dance to. It was a tribute to my hubby Stuart of course – the biggest Beatles fan ever – I figured I would have to dance at least once to his fav band in this challenge 🙂

I took the bus back from Brooklyn to Queens this time – it was a long ride to not be allowed to sit. And there was traffic. I sooooo wished I could sit down, just for a second. I dream of that day!!
