summer for an actress is a weird time, full of strange free days filled with perfect weather, tempered by the stressful reality that YOU MUST GET MORE WORK. while i'd rather be playing with some truly glorious fabric from a truly beautiful friend that found its way home with me, i'm holding myself back, keeping it in view like a prize.
when a job is on the horizon, it's much easier to use these free days to sew to your heart's content. instead, i find myself taking on the task of Cleaning Out The Storage Area, a task akin to Capital Punishment. this area, this section eight, already monstrous at its inception, became The Beast That Shall Not Be Named during our years of subletting our apartment. did i ever tell you about that? yeah, we were super smart and acquired tenants during an LA move. acting took me back to NY, and instead of reclaiming our digs, i moved five times in two years, to irritating sketchy craigslist find after irritating sketchy craigslist find, occasionally stopping in our Real Home to grab a few things out of storage and chuck ten more things in, doing it all in a mad hurry so as not to disturb The Tenants. two years later, we moved back in, and five years later, we're still eyeing that little hobbit sized door with dread.
TODAY WE OPEN IT.
