Hey, friends. I know, I know, I'm a terrible blogger. It's been over a month since my last post. Basically, the internet I have available to me has reduced to just the public library, so I have to get my ass out of the apartment with my computer (which is what I've done today so that you could read this lovely post). Anyway, here's a quick update on what's happened, in no chronological order:
-I got a new laptop for Xmas (yay!), so I no longer have to haul around my monitor!
-My aunt's movie, "The D-Monster," in which I was an extra and a Production Assistant, had a Tupperware Party as a fundraiser. However, this wasn't your grandma's Tupperware Party. The hostess was a good friend of my aunt's, and she's been the top seller of Tupperware products in America for three years in a row. Her name is Dee, and she's a drag queen. Her shtick is that she's from Tennessee and is delightfully coarse in language. She goes to Orange County and sells tons. For those of you who don't know, Orange County is rich, white, and conservative (pretty much the only place in all of California where this happens) and is one of the strongholds of douchebaggery that made Proposition 8 possible. I dunno how she does it, but Dee just charms the heck out of those cross-wielding, SUV-driving housewives.
Anyway, the event was on Sunday afternoon. There was tons of food and booze to loosen up people's wallets, and I was the one in charge of the booze. However, since this was a special occasion, it called for a special bartender. I was Dee's "reindeer boy." It's about as bad as it sounds. I wore a tan, furry vest; a set of reindeer horns; and a giant, shiny, pink bow around my neck. Suzy owes me big.
-I got to work on Xmas! Yay! Clay, Matt, and Emily all abandoned me, as did my aunt. And by "abandoned me," I meant "went home and spent time with their families, so I'm just jealous." I spent Xmas at home watching DVDs and eating fast food. Never again.
-Thanks to Matt, I now have a second job. Woo! I'll be working at the same pizza place he does, which is exciting because it's much better pay and more hours than the movie theatre.
-I finally found enough money to buy a video game: Dragon Age Origins. Buy it, play it, love it. There's even gay sex in it! Of course that's not the only reason I bought the game, but you can be sure I got to that scene in the game as fast as I could.
K, this is long enough. Next time, I'll write about some of the movies I've seen in the last while, including "Invictus," "Avatar," and hopefully "Sherlock Holmes" (mmm, Robert Downey Jr. and Jude Law). Until then, BYEEEE!
