Something to write home about.

I always have things to write about, really, even when I don't have anything to say, I say it anyway. I do actually have a few things to say now, though I've forgotten most of them. I've been more busy than usual, actually doing stuff, working mostly but that's not what has kept me from jotting down characters in this here blog in a somewhat organized manner.. I just haven't.. wanted to, I guess.

So, I'm now working. It's been a while but I'm back in the ranks of the employed. Well sorta.. I kind of work for myself in a technical way, though not in an actual way.. although I guess that counts as employed.

It's been a few weeks I've been doing tours for real life people and to be honest I think I'm pretty fucking good at it. Maybe not the best, maybe not fantastic at every aspect, maybe I can still improve by doing more, and adding things, and implementing new ideas but, I'm alright at this. It would be nice to know this certainly though, because there are moments, you know.

We had our hottest day here on record yesterday, well.. the hottest day for like, ages anyway, which of course had to happen once I'm employed doing 2 plus hour walking tours around the city center, and yes, I did have tours yesterday, not tour, tours, one after the other, and although it wasn't as bad as the worst it could have been, and I did get through them just fine, it was.. well too hot for that.

So that's what I'm doing. Last time I bothered to write I had some auditions, castings int he near future well guess what.. they came to nothing surprise surprise. Well a student film but by this point I'd like there to be something else out there for me. And if it is one of them then a proper major role at least.. and maybe playing someone under 50.. especially when they're not going to bother putting aging makeup and not even mention that it's strange I'm playing someone so old.. while making such a comment about the main actor in the movie... well.. don't want to dwell on that. *grumbles about it*

I commented on your last post, but it didn't seem to "take". I think Blogger is a bit of a mess these days don't you ? *looks back to a former time thru rose-coloured spectacles*

Anyway, I thought I'd better touch base, as it's been some time since I scratched my mark on your amazingly long-lived Blog. So what can I say, except congratulations on your employment, which I'm sure aids your acting too *imagines you "hamming it up" on your tours*

By the way, aren't you at an age now where you'll be in big demand to play aged characters? *ducks*

yeah.. they automatically go into moderation, guess it's been so long since you commented..

I didn't see the last comment, usually I get an email notification.. so, dunno what happened yeah.

yeah... I know I'm not 20.. I don't mind getting roles of women in their 30s, even "around 40" which I've gotten many of recently.. and even not so recently, back when I was further from 40... but, you know, I can still get pissed off with someone casting me not only as someone much older than I'd ideally like to think I look, but much older than I actually am, with nary a comment that it's unusual.. that's just rude, really.

I was teasing you. You're a fine looking woman and you don't need me to tell you that :) I'm sure they're not making a judgement when they cast you in such roles. Maybe it's for the best, and is good preparation for that time when the bigger more acceptable roles arrive?

oh.. I know, it's just that I'm ok (sort of) with being seen as generally the age I am.. but.. o whatever.. just went on another casting for this month's films, see if anything comes from that.

oh and blogger is getting really hardass now, your comments were in moderation again, even though you're now a repeat commenter.. again. Weird.
