Sorry I've been a little MIA this week but my schedule has been pretty killer. All good stuff, but sometimes your body just needs to rest, and that's exactly what I did yesterday. I was in bed all day! The reason...Take a look at Wednesday's schedule.
3:30 am Alarm goes off. Time to wake up. (are you serious?!) Hit snooze.
3:39 am Alarm goes off again. Don't want to get out of bed, but know if I don't, I'll be late. Turn alarm off and hit the shower.
4:30 am Need caffeine! Pour 1st Diet Pepsi of the day (into my Venti Starbucks cold cup)
4:45 am Pack up the car. Makeup, check. Hair stuff, check. Sweatshirt and Ugg boots for when it gets cold later, check.
4:50 am Top off Diet Pepsi for the drive.
4:55 am Driving to the 1st location, in the dark.
5:30 am Loving the drive to work. There's zero traffic! A rarity in LA.
6:00 am The sun is beginning to rise. So pretty!
6:15 am Arrive at location #1 in Agoura Hills.
6:30 am Get hair and makeup station set up.
6:45 am Grab Breakfast.
6:50 am All Star Weekend arrives early for video shoot.
8:00 am Hair and makeup done, and ready for first shot of the day.
9:30 am Director wants me to take a peek at the extras to make sure they look good. Some of them need tweaking. I'm so glad I brought an assistant today!
11:15 am Pretty much on schedule. The shots are moving quickly, and everything is looking great.
11:20 am When is lunch? I'm starving and Craft Service (a glorified term for on-set snack bar) is pretty sad. Not to mention that bees are swarming all over everything. Gross!
12:30 pm It just got seriously hot! I'm talking at least 10 degrees or more, and we're outside in the Valley with estimated temps in the 100 range!
12:35 pm Quick touch up of the guys, for last shot before lunch.
1:00 pm Break for lunch. They're serving up Mexican food, and it's so yummy! I think on a normal day I'd think it was just ok, but I'm starving, so it's the best fajitas ever! On to Diet Coke #3.
2:00 pm Company move, which is production speak for everything and everyone moves to another location.
2:05 pm My car is SO hot! I can't get my a/c working fast enough. I feel disgusting. I'm sweaty, and feel dirty from being in the canyon on dirt roads. I want a shower! Glad we're heading to the beach where it will be cooler.
2:10 pm Drive to location #2. Beautiful drive through the canyon and up PCH. Gorgeous day!
3:00 pm Stop at Neptune's Net for Diet Coke #4. Don't judge.
3:30 pm Touch up all of the guys.
4:45 pm I spot a seal in the water and point it out to Michael. He insists that it's a ball, and then I see the seal's head turn. Michael still thinks it's a ball, until the seal swims away showing full body. Awww..This is Michael.
8:15 pm Craft Service ran out of Diet Coke!!! I'm going to die!
9:00 pm Pizza arrives. Everyone is starving because there's nothing to snack on. Worst Craft Service ever!
9:30 pm Realize that I've been standing at least 13 of the 15 hours I've been working! Starting to feel really tired and my back is killing me!
10:30 pm 2 shots left. I'm tired, and the guys are exhausted!
11:00 pm MARTINI SHOT! (aka last shot of the day)
11:30 pm That's a wrap! Yay!
11:45 pm The worst part of my day...packing up.
12:00 pm Drive home. I can barely hold my eyes open and really should not be driving.
1:15 am Home sweet home. Feel like I've been hit by a truck! My body hurts as I get out of the car.
1:25 am Can't get into bed feeling this dirty. Quick shower.
1:45 am Ahhh....bed!!!
Yesterday: Bed all day.
Today: I feel human again.
I'll be catching up on all of my blog reading this weekend, and getting back to regular posting next week. I can't wait to hear what you've all been up to!
Have a great weekend!
