Determination 101

You are too short. Sorry, you're a little too plain. Ummm, you are too pretty for this. Actually, we want someone with LIGHT red hair. We're looking for a blond. Brunette. Bald. Pixie cut. You're HOW old? Too old. Too young. We need someone with green eyes. Brown. Hazel. Purple. Too pale. Not pale enough. Much too Caucasian. Wrong gender. Chest is too big. Chest is too small. Too many freckles. Butt too flat. Not athletic enough. Too athletic. You really cannot dance. You dance too well. Not perky enough. Too perky. AGH!!! Hmmm...for some parts I'm just right and I'll keep going until I'm the PERFECT fit!!

All Nighters

The Kroger Creeper!

The phrase, "I'm not as young as I used to be" certainly comes to mind. Over the last month, I've pulled three all nighters! All involving night shoots for commercials and film. Whew...I remember when I could stay up all night and feel ALMOST fine the next's been an ENTIRE week and I'm still feeling it. Oh well...the things we do for work! The first two all nighters were for night shoots for Kroger on the will see the back of my head, my profile AND my entire face! Hey, that's progress!
When we shot the commercial, we were at a 24 hour service Kroger in Durham and there were REAL shoppers throughout the night. Imagine their surprise when they saw all of us frozen waiting for our cue to go. We definitely creeped people out. They couldn't figure out what we were doing. AND, I'm sorry, but my expression probably freaked them out even more! What fun!
