March 12 of 12

My March 12 of 12 is live in Decatur, GA, where I'm home for my grandmother's funeral. Good to be home and to see my family while we celebrate Mama Sue's long life.

1 of 12 - 9:30 am - Up and at 'em. View from the bedroom in my Mom's house.

2 of 12 - 10:00 am - Mom doing some morning emailing.

3 of 12 - 10:45 am - Brunch with my dad and sister at Sun In My Belly in Decatur. Got my grits fix!

4 of 12 - 12:00 pm - Time to wake up our brother.

5 of 12 - 2:45 pm - Shopping with mom and sis. Looking for funeral wear...found awesome tracksuit instead. That should work, right?

6 of 12 - 4:12 pm - Trying to cash in the change Mom's students brought in for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. We think we broke the machine.

7 of 12 - 5:45 pm - Mama Sue was a looker in her day. I love looking at these old pictures.

8 of 12 - 7:30 pm - Peter, my brother, climbing a tree per usual on our walk before dinner. Loving daylight savings time right about now.

9 of 12 - 7:35 pm - Whoever preceded me in the Candler Park parking lot shared my sentiments.

10 of 12 - 8:07 pm - Artistry to accompany paella at La Fonda Cantina.

11 of 12 - 10:45 pm - Peter on the phone with his ladyfriend.

12 of 12 - 11:55 pm - A trip down memory lane before bed. Love that Mom has all these pictures out in the living room.

Effie Mae is looking for a date

Effie Mae, my alter ego, is lonely. She decided to do something about it.

Le sigh.

So I was waiting to post because I thought I was going to have some Really Exciting News. But the longer I wait, the less likely it seems that that specific Really Exciting News is going to pan out. Hence le sigh.

So I'll just talk about the good part. Monday night I had an awesome audition that turned into a callback for a theatre in Glendale. It was a blast. The material was fun, I was right for the part, and I nailed it. They had me read over and over and over again with different people and seemed impressed and were very complimentary. At the end of the night, they sent everyone home but me and another girl, and had us read another scene together. Then they sent her home and sat me down and talked to me about cutting my hair, what my work schedule is like, where I live, etc. I left at midnight and felt like they had basically said everything except "We'd like to offer you the part."

And that was Monday. Sigh. But! It's the nature of the biz! And I'm not completely giving up hope.

I've also started another venture, which I think could turn out to be really cool. It's a blog of free stuff in LA. Please check out BrokeLA. If you don't live here, it will let you know all the cool stuff you're missing.

I got a cute message from my mom and stepdad this week telling me I could come home because they're shooting a movie in my hometown of Decatur, GA. It's actually sort of tempting, because I'd probably have an easier time getting my last SAG voucher being an extra there than here. So maybe I'll go home for a much desired visit in pursuit of my SAG eligibility. And their awesome cooking.
