Tired. Probably go to bed soon.

I didn't sleep well last night. Or, well, I didn't fall asleep right away.

For whatever reason, none of my emails loaded throughout the day, so just as I was winding down (at 11:30), I had a bunch of emails come through, and since the jobs I submit myself for notify me of their existence through email, I had to run through every one and submit, submit, submit.

Also, since I knew I was going to be on set today, I had to call the information tape to make sure my call time hadn't changed. It hadn't; 11 a.m. meant it didn't really matter that I didn't fall asleep right away.

But as I lay there in the bed, my brain would just not shut down. I don't have insomniac tendencies, thankfully, so I just kept my eyes closed and tried to will myself to sleep. I think I may have actually fallen asleep for maybe five minutes before I was fully aware that I was fully awake again/still. Even the non-FitBit thingy, which thought I was sleeping, recognized that I wasn't sleeping soundly from 11:50 - 1:15. Usually, I am out within about ten minutes. Not last night.

If you must know, I was planning my "do-over" for if the Universe ever actually grants me one.

So when the alarm sounded this morning, I made sure to "sleep in" long enough to actually get about 7.5 hours of sleep, rather than just accepting the 7.5 that the non-FitBit thingy recorded (or 9:19, as the case may be).

Got up, got ready, headed out to set. I was playing a nurse today, and this was a recall from the other day, so I didn't have to take much with me. I knew where to go and what to do. Good thing, since I didn't sleep well last night. There was an earlier crew in, already working, so the handful of us who went in at 11 got really comfy on the couches (read, took a nap) while waiting for the working crew to break for lunch. There was a screening of tonight's episode during lunch, so most of us watched some teevee while we ate our scrumptious lunch. After lunch, they moved us to a different holding area and then immediately sent us to set to get to work, as they were wrapping the morning crew at the end of their 7.5 hour workday.

We worked just one scene, from multiple angles, and then we were wrapped. I only had time while on set to circle the building a few times, so I left there with only ~3000 steps under my belt.

Got home, waited for the sun to go down so the air would cool, and set out walking. Apparently, I miscounted, and when I got back in, the non-FitBit thingy said I still owed 930 steps! LIAR! It also said that a 9-minute walk would cover it, so *mumble mutter sputter grumble BITCH* I headed back out. I had a timepiece with me, and I was counting my steps, and guess what? I walk about 100 steps per minute, if I'm walking about 3+mph. Didn't know that, but now I don't have to count my steps anymore. I can just choose to walk quickly for a certain period of time, and that should mean that I'll hit my target! Yay for knowledge!

So I had a short but lucrative and productive day, and now I can just go to bed. Maybe they'll rush call me tonight for some work tomorrow. That'd be awesome.

I didn't ask you a closing question yesterday, and I still got comments. Do you LIKE it when I ask a question, or does it just not matter?


  1. The questions are fine, keep em coming.

    Hey...don't you have an email address link on this page somewhere? I was going to send you a link to my photo's if you wanted to take a look.

    1. There's the "never miss a post" email thingy on the right ==> but I think that may be an autosubscribe dealio through blogger.

      If you have the photos in a link, just put it here in the comments, and I ought to be able to follow that.

    2. But then EVERYONE in the world will see my totes awesome pics and be all jelly.

    3. That is the risk you run, Lee. Everyone being all jelly of your totes awesome pics. ;)

    4. Fine, here:


    5. Gorgeous. Y'all didn't have ALL the fun while you were there, did you?

      By the way, I noticed you caught the QofC in your pics. You could email that to Eli, and then when he shares it as a "Stranger Picture of the Week", the rest of the Strangers will think you're back and you didn't abandon them! ;)

    6. LOL...true. Never even thought of that.


I LOVE your feedback; give it to me, Baby. Uh-huh, uh-huh.
