Guys, I'm ridiculously excited about my Christmas card. My poor mother has to hear about it every time we talk. They're ordered and she get here in about a week so I can mail them out and then share with the world. But until then, I'll keep giggling about it on my own. And, for the record, Monster once again hated the shoot. But got lots of treats for putting up with it :)
Had a fitting today for a commercial that's shooting on Friday. My goal for my first year out here was to have a national commercial booked. This is close. It's regional, but it's the biggest thing I've gotten since getting out here and the paycheck is honestly the reason I can go home for Christmas.
I seem to run into people every shoot and fitting I go into that are absolutely certain they've worked with me before. It always seems like a good connotation so I'll happily take it and hopefully next time I can say "Yeah! That definitely is me!" But in the mean time, I'm getting to share laughs with new friends everywhere I go.
Something absolutely sweet happened at this morning's fitting. I got there about ten minutes early, threw an hour in the meter and went in. We were still adding options and snapping pictures as the one hour mark approached and anyone in LA will tell you that the traffic cops are like bloodhounds. I swear they can smell expiring meters from miles away. So with about two minutes left on my meter I rushed out to put more money in. As I neared the spot, the other girl who was having a fitting was coming back from her car (she got there around the same time as me earlier) and asked if I was the blue car. She put another two hours on me meter for me because she was worried I wouldn't be let out in time to catch it myself.
Also finally started at the coffee shop. My coworkers are fantastic and as a trainee, part of my training is tasting all the coffees and teas. Needless to say the perks of working there are pretty excellent :)
