It was a Bolt Bus day. And annoying trips both on my way to my filmshoot in Baltimore MD and back to NYC. Plus it was a long day as my bus left near Madison Square Gardens at 7.45am and then had to be on the 7.45pm back, which meant I was up at 6am and didn’t get back home until after Midnight. Ugh.

Both on the way there and back of course someone chooses me to sit next to when both bus trips the bus was not full! Always happens. I must have a sign on my forehead or a low maintenance vibe. You can see why they chose me when you look at what the other people are doing – sitting on the aisle and putting their belongings on the seat near the window so taking up both seats. I can’t do that. I think that’s a bit of a jackass thing to do, so I couldn’t do that.

I was so tired so I tried to sleep on the way out there – why I thought I could sleep on a bus when I can’t sleep well in my own bed was beside me, but tried – and you guessed it…..failed. I’m having issues with being uncomfortable these days – can’t sleep as am uncomfortable, after I eat I feel uncomfortable, so naturally on the bus I felt uncomfortable. My bum was uncomfortable! Was wearing flowy trousers in order to BE comfortable and the seats were leather so I kept sliding down them! It was super annoying! Thought it was me slipping down while trying to sleep but bum hurt again on the way back without me doing anything – so I don’t know! The Bolt Bus seats did not agree with me! It makes me wonder though about flying and whether I will have a problem sitting in those airplane seats for long periods of time too. Ugh I hope not!

Well I would have stood for the two 3.5 hour bus rides but I could not justify that as part of my “no sitting on public transportation” 365 criteria as that really is for in-city commuter transport, AND ummmmm that would be CRAZY!

Would have typed this up and done my video upload to youtube with the free wifi on the Bolt Bus but it was horribly slow! And kept kicking me off, so gave up.

AND I lost my water bottle on the Bolt Bus on the way back, so was soooo thirsty!

Clearly the Bolt Bus experience, my first, was not the highlight of the day!

What was the highlight was arriving on set as it was gorgeous. I got in a little early after all that so there I was on a porch of a house with a purple door listening to just nature in the woods – amazing! It was too bad I couldn’t just sun tan all day and not have to get into white makeup to play the mother dying of cancer 😦

Another highlight – two bees mated on the chair next to me on the porch haha! And I managed to get a photo of it although only had my blackberry on me annoyingly at the time and not my ipod to video or get a good shot, so here is what I got…

(sidenote: just had to re-type the whole blog as tried to save time by typing some of my post on my blackberry and then copied and pasted it thinking it would save me some time as its so late and it wouldn’t friggin’ format – so thank you Stuart for reading it out for me to re-type directly into wordpress…..an end to annoying day!!!!!!!!!!)

(Oh and another sidenote quickly – had dinner with a good friend from the UK yesterday and I said I would mention and thus tag her as part of my 365 but had already written yesterday’s blog so this is a shout out to you Jemma Withers!!)
