I’ll be heading to Los Angeles tonight to attend that casting director Q&A tomorrow in Burbank. I’m so excited! While I’m down there, I decided to bug my friends to take me to get some local grub. What better way to enjoy LA than to cruise on the hospitality of good friends? I have to admit, I can’t stop hoping I’ll bump into my favorite guy in the world, Will Friedle. Of course, the chances of that happening are slim to none. From what I gather, he frequents the bar scene. I mean, I can only go to so many bars in one night. Plus, I heard he smokes, which makes no sense considering he makes a living off of his voice. Eventually, his voice will change. From the sound of Thundercats, it already has. Guess I’ll leave it up to the gods of kismet. I guess if I was feeling crazy, I could swing by his house & steal a clump of dirt from his front lawn…but that’s not going to happen. Although, it’d be hilarious if I did…and a little psychotic, haha!
I often think about what my meeting with Will would be like. Perhaps filled with tears, heart palpitations & immobility? Naw, I like to think I’m cooler than that. I imagine my chance encounter to go somewhat similar to the pleasant experience of when I met Matthew & Gunnar Nelson at a cafe. Or it could be awkward like the time I ran into Joe McIntyre at 3 AM; he was so completely tired & irritable that he took it out on me & my friend. I wanted to slap him. Or, it could be as awesome as the time I met Jason Marsden & he already knew my name. I wanted to hug him like a long lost friend. What a sweetheart. As memorable as these all were, I’m thinking my encounter would be most likely an admiration from afar, like when I spotted Katey Sagal in Carmel, Kathy Najimy in Los Angeles, Kevin Nealon in New York, or Kevin Pollack in San Francisco. Wow, lots of Ks in the house.
No matter what, I’m excited to be having a weekend experience in the middle of the work week. This is why I need a career change. I’d love to travel for work. Oh, we’re doing a movie in Canada & you need Canadian extras? I’d fly right over there in a heartbeat. I’m so excited over this career path I’ve decided to go towards. You have no idea how many have preceded this one. It took quite a long time for me to feel solid about something. We shall see what happens. The future is always unpredictable.
