I'm BUSY being jobless

Last Friday Noodle and I saw Xanadu. IT WAS SO MUCH FUN. It was hilarious. We were laughing the whole time. Douglas Carter Beane bascially took the idea of the movie and then created his own wonderful campy delightfulness. James Carpinello broke his foot and so one of his understudies went on. He was okay, but you could tell he was struggling, but he was on freaking skates. Anyhoo, turns out that Noodle knows the choreographer, Dan Knechtges, so we chatted with him a bit after. His choreography really was a highlight. SO MUCH FUN. Anyhoo, I would be interested to see Cheyenne Jackson's take on the lead. I believe he goes in this week and will play the role until James Carpinello comes back. This could totally take off with a cult following, if only people would go and see it. I wonder if they actually will. Kerry Butler rocked my world and Mary Testa made me pee myself and Noodle a couple times. I want to be Mary Testa. Sometimes, I think I am. I plan on going 9 more times if anyone is interested.

The Office is over. I was informed on Friday that I was being killed off the show. How did my character die? An angry executive was so livid that his sandwich arrived 20 minutes late that he spontaneously combusted. One of his angry executive arms torpedoed from his body directly into my jugular and I died immediately. Such drama. Now I have to find a new role. I'm considering this new episodic entitled, "Over-paid temp." I'll let ya'll know.

My first voiceover coaching was such fun. I really had a great time and learned so much in my jam-packed hour. It turns out that I am "very high energy." Which makes me well-suited to "kids stuff." I worked on a really fun spot for Discovery Kids which was all about fungi and toe cheese, etc. Ew. And my challenge as the vo talent was to make sure that "Ew" was in my voice. FUN TIMES. I can't wait until my next session. Holla!

That's that for now. Have to get back to my rigorous schedule of watching daytime television.

I was told I sound really young and friendly, and have a great "laugh" to my voice.

Then I brought in a vodka promo...and they said, "wow, your lower register...I like that you can do sexy."

HELL'S YES. IF DOODLE CAN SELL KIDS TOE EW THEN I CAN MAKE MEN DROOL. (why wouldn't we switch? I mean really)

Good lord, boy. I go off into the desert for a few days and you get killed off? And I find out because your gmail picture changes?

Surreal.

I'm guessing that Ew is one of your most easily accessed vocal colors. Picture sawdust. In the shower. Ew.

Keep me posted. You know how I get. (Hey - are you gonna get unemployment??? Chouette!!)
