Update! I'm a puppy! I'm on the news!

(Me as Blue Dog)


I've been BUSY! When I'm in rehearsals for a play it takes up all of my time, focus, energy, etc. I'm in the final stretch of "Go Dog Go" rehearsal before we open on December 4th. It is a 50 minute show FULL of action. Yes, it's a "kids show" but I don't think for one minute you *have* to be a kid to enjoy it. It is so adorable I can't stand it. It's fast moving, fancy, active, comedic, etc. It is fun to have a break from my super dramatic roles and do something so physical and cutesy. My youtube viewers would love to see this! I wish you all could! It is so much fun to do. One of those things where you pinch yourself and wonder how you're getting paid to have fun and work out?! ;)

BUT, I didn't anticipate how much hard work would go into this takes extreme focus. We never leave the stage. I don't think I've sweated so much in my life! In fact, the other day it got a little scary... I had some kind of attack at the end of a run on friday. I hadn't eaten enough and didn't think about how much I am burning at our rehearsals. Rehearsals usually last 5 hours, weekends they're longer. Luckily I got a cookie and juice right away and slowly recovered. I was seeing stars, couldn't focus, was dizzy, couldn't take a deep breath. So scary. I've never had anything like that happen before. The next day I woke up feeling like my normal self :) I think I need to eat more than usual for extra energy?? I hope that's all it was.

I've also had some exciting things happen with a local news station! They asked me on the morning show for the "New Moon" opening at a local movie theater. I wasn't sure what I'd be doing, so I showed up prepared to play up to 4 characters. Honey Bee went first and it worked so well they kept me on for the whole morning show popping in & out improving, it was one of the most fun things I've ever done. I've uploaded the clips to my channel It went so well they've asked me back on for December 9th! KUTV2 news. I'm keeping it top secret... I'll reveal more soon enough!

I haven't had a free day in forever! Thanksgiving was great but went by too fast! Monday is our day off of rehearsal but I've had a photo shoot the last two mondays. Tomorrow is my first true free day in I don't know how long! As always, I can't be lazy, unfortunately. I need to get about 8 million things done! Wish me luck!

New videos coming soon, once the show is up and running!

There are so many little projects on the side too... I'll keep you posted as each comes up :)

Here are two preview articles on "Go Dog Go"
