It's my birthday!!
A whole bunch of my friends came over to celebrate. I love these kind of nexus events where I spend a lot of time saying "Oh, you two will like each other." And then they DO! At the very least because they can now trade terrible stories about me. But also because all of my friends are fantastic. I think my favorite part of the party was when I gave my friend Anna some leftover heart medication prescribed to my cat, Birthday, who died a few months ago because her husband takes the same pill and it's very expensive and I didn't want it to go to waste. I think he might throw it away, but I really felt great about the whole thing.
Got a lot done this month: besides my birthday and the medication trade, I moved! I'm in Silverlake now and I have no idea what took me so long to get over here. I've been spending a bunch of time at the reservoir with the big happy dog I now live with. Also, I spent a couple days in Palm Springs with a bunch of BoPo girls - so great to finally meet some internet friends in the flesh.
I also audited a couple acting classes: the first was a master class at Warner Loughlin Studios taught by Warner herself! She was fantastic- really thoughtful and a clear communicator. The studio was gorgeous and the students are obviously talented and love working together. I also sat in on classes with Marjorie Ballantine and at Anthony Meindl's Actor Workshop. AMAW was really inspiring - I really felt that Martha Graham vitality in the scenes I saw that night. I'm going to check out a few more classes before I make a commitment, but I've been really impressed so far!
Annnnd I did another table reading for the The Table Read Series! I feel so luck to be working with that group. I probably say that every month, but it's just how I feel. :)
