It’s Stuart’s Birthday today woooo hooooo!!!

We leave today for our friend’s wedding up in Vermont so had to get all this done early before our 1pm departure and deal with tenant drama, office drama, crapporama…so once again no sleep and early rise! UGH!

What I would give for sleep!!!! And Netflix!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I can’t believe its June!!!!!!!!!!!!

Although last day of May was annoying – between the office drama (that’s still ongoing), to picking something to wear to this wedding tomorrow and everything looking like I ate a whole cow, to losing pregnancy clothes in the laundry that I wanted to pack with me. Schmleh!!!!

You know, really the whole of May was annoying!

Every month has been annoying!!!

Can we tell I just need a break!!!!?????!!!!

I guess the fact that I am still standing is a token of success and a miracle!!

Let’s just focus on Stuart – HAPPY BIRTHDAY BABY!!

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…

Well…I have a lot on my plate that I would like to share with you….

I would like to spread the word about a project I am co-producing that is coming up at the end of the month. It is a workshop production of Jose Rivera’s “Brainpeople” that is to be directed by none other than the amazing Jose River himself!

Jose Rivera is an incredibly famous playwright who is best known for his oscar nominated film “The Motorcycle Diaries”. We are able to bring him and his workshop production to The New School for Drama in order to give him a creative platform for him to develop his work for the future but also to promote the school in doing so.

I was fortunate enough to be able to audition for one of the open roles that was to be offered to a New School for Drama alum and honored that he wanted me to be in the room, even though he went with the other role, by offering me the role of the understudy to one of the celebrity roles!

So obviously I am trying to make this opportunity happen!

Below is the link to a fundraising campaign we have started on Indiegogo in order to make this amazing opportunity a reality. And there are cool perks to those that contribute – including even the chance to have coffee with the man of the hour, Jose Rivera himself!! How cool is that??!!

But we would appreciate anything you are able to contribute seriously. If you want. If you can.

The link to the Indiegogo fundraising campaign is here if you feel so inclined to even just check it out:

I know this is a plug within my blog, but honestly, the producing side to this is what is on my mind these days and trying to help make this happen so I get the chance to understudy along side Jose Rivera…so that’s why it is in my “Anything To Note” section today 🙂

Thank you to all that continuously support my work – without you guys, I wouldn’t be where I am today. Seriously!

Big schmoochies from me!!

(and from the schmonkoid in my belly haha!!)

Super tired today but as usual could not sleep. And annoyingly, could not sleep in when I could have today!!!!

I didn’t finish moving and unpacking the office until 1am this morning!! There was drama all day with the movers and the building that only got worse as the hours went by and the 10pm apparent deadline approached for the movers to be done. They had to move out the whole office suite furniture for the others in the day and then it was supposed to take from 6pm-8pm to move us all up to the 18th floor with the furniture and boxes and items remaining BUT it was not that simple! The building wouldn’t allow the movers to use the freight elevator more than three times during the day otherwise they charge something like $180 an hour!!!!! CRAZY!!!! So, there was a delay in getting the mass amount of the building that accumulated until 6pm.

Once 6pm struck they were allowed to use the elevator again apparently as many times as we liked BUT the building said only to go up with the items!! So they battled it out and agreed to get the remaining bulk downstairs as they needed to apparently be out now by 10pm and the trucks needed to be loaded too. So half the men went down to load the trucks and then only a couple were left to move us all up to our new offices!

AND then it was something like 9.15pm and nothing from my office had even moved yet because they were doing it in order from the door and sadly our office is the furthest away, so we were last 😦

Well, why this drama was going on and the delays were growing, we all decided to carry up some small things ourselves, which I know, was not the thing I was supposed to be doing, but I couldn’t sit around. So I carried up small things and then ran out of those, so discovered that things on my shoulder were better so filled the large Ikea bag and carried up some things….and they were a little heavy, and I know I know I wasn’t supposed to be doing that when pregnant. I was smart though in my defence as I had to resist the urge to just take the crazy heavy things up, but I didn’t!!

It was funny though as I realized that I could not carry things in front of me with the BUMP! I realized that when I carry things I rest them on my belly or on my hip to make it easier, which could not happen, so had to rely on arm strength and my lack there of made it sooooo hard!!

The bump was in my way!!

But, it was a constant reminder to take it easy, so I guess that was good 🙂

Anyway, it was a long day and a late night, so was able to sleep in….and guess what…I could not! My body and back have been achy these past few days so needed to rest but ugh, sleep is rough these days. Somehow I need to fix this 😦

Hence why the early 365.

Hence why my dance was in slow-mo in the kitchen when it should have been a crunk dance party.

Slow slow slow putting!
