The Johnsons Christmas.





This year Michael and I decided that it was time we get our own individual Christmas tree for our home. It's 6 1/2 feet tall and lacking in ornaments, but I still love it and had fun setting it up. Thank you Michael for picking up the tree, and thanks to myself for picking up the ornaments. As you can see from the pic's that I'm getting the bottom ornaments cause Michaels too tall to see that the bottom of the tree doesn't have any. lol. I still love you.
For this Christmas we got up early to go to the Fairbanks home. We ate a wonderful breakfast credited to Sally and Grandma Fairbanks. We got a lot of wonderful gifts which I'm very excited about and I know Michael is too. I've got a lot of reading to look forward to as well. We played Settlers of Catan, which we cut off early cause people were getting bored with it. You only need 10 points and I was at 9 on my last turn when that was decided. I am feared!!! Muah ha ha ha!!! So that was fun a well as the classic Tetris game that Daniel held the record of 124 lines. And I also got to play with Alexas hammies a lot. That was fun too!
Today I get to look forward to having the Johnsons come to our apartment. I guess they was to see the new place. Whateve's I'm excited to see them again. Merry Christmas From the Johnsons. I love Family!

Burbank Mall Incident

Based on a True Story

Last night, Breann and I were at the mall to do a little Christmas shopping. As we walked through Macy's - to get the the main part of the mall - we both noticed a small, chubby boy (I won't mention his race) who had one of those cologne papers in his hand (the ones you spray the cologne on). We watched him as he wafted the paper, smelled the sweet cologne, then let the paper slide from his chubby little fingers and fall to the floor.

Now, this is the part that bothered both of us.

He was about to pick it up but realized that if he did, he wouldn't be as "cool" as he thought he was, so, bent over with only a few inches to go, he decided to raise back up and pretend he didn't drop anything. As Breann and I walked by him, I gathered up the "authority," turned around and let these 5 words slip from my mouth, "Uh, you dropped your paper" all while pointing to the fallen piece. He, I'm sure, felt extremely embarrassed and hopefully will pick up his trash in the future.

Long story short, if you drop some trash on the ground, be respectful and pick it up (mainly because you never know who's watching and is ready to embarrass you). :)

Back to Work

I just caught myself trying to e-mail my husband about a simple question while he's on his way home from work to go out with me. I write WAY too many e-mails. I forget that it's not the only way to contact someone. ha ha ha. Silly me.

Mad Fan

Hey guys! Here's a new vid I was in recently. I only had a small role in this one, but I hope you like it anyway. I thought it was funny. Also, special note from the actor...I did my shot in only ONE TAKE! They LOVED it so they used that one. Enjoy!

October 21, 2010

The new place.

I love the laundry machine. I think I've washed all our dirty clothes in a matter of a couple easy hours. (happy sigh)

The place is messy. We own too much junk.

It doesn't feel like home yet. Due to the mess and lack of dinning room table and a much needed dresser.

It's smaller, but the space is more wisely used in this apartment design.

Storage unit outside above my covered parking is wet due to the rain, so that hasn't proven to be useful yet.

Love the washer and Dryer. Did I mention that already....


And on a different note. Michael and I are going to Universal Studios "Halloween Horror Nights" TONIGHT!!!! I'm totally looking forward to it.

October 19, 2010

Happy Birthday Preston!

Yay. Happy Birthday Buddy!

October 04, 2010

I love this one.

For the Confusion

A lot of people misspell my name quite frequently. I'm here to clarify. It's MICHAEL. Hope this helps those who might be considering spelling my name on a/an envelope, email, blog post, blog comment, text message, AIM conversation, Facebook message, Myspace message, twitter/tweet, LinkedIn profile, happy birthday card, newsletter, greeting card, postcard, painting, scrapbook, billboard, website post, or any other possible place you can think of writing my name. :)

My First Film!!!

This is the first student film I have received back. It's by Sean Frost, from the New York Film Academy here in L.A. Some of the props and all the costumes were my own personal items. Michael and I are really pleased with how it turned out. This will be great footage for my demo reel. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did.

September 30, 2010

Happy Birthday Dad!

To my awesome Dad, I hope you have an equally awesome Birthday!

Credits on my resume

I've been in 2 student films recently, one of them I got to be the lead. I'm also shooting another one this weekend. I've been super busy and booking a lot of small stuff lately trying to build up my resume. I feel so blessed by the Lord for helping me peruse my dreams. I've been praying for a while for more roles to put on my resume and he is defiantly responding. I'll post the work I do as soon as I get it. Thank you guys for your support.

September 27, 2010

Happy Anniversary Brooke and Peter!

Did I get it right this time? Either way I love ya!

September 23, 2010

Moving

We're moving just down the street. Kenwood Mews raised the price by like 300$ a month!!! That caused us to look for a different apartment. The one we found is Avalon at Media Center. It's smaller (bad) and cheaper (good$$$), and it has a washer and dryer in unit (really good). YES!!! We don't have to change wards or anything. I could literately walk to these apartments from Kenwood. Blessing in disguise!

August 28, 2010

Happy Birthday Michael!!!

To the best husband ever! Happy Birthday! Hope you love it.

So, John Schneider taught at the Will Wallace Acting company last night. Sometimes when Will is busy he'll find someone else to teach class. If you don't know who John is check this out: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0773884/. Or if you don't know who Will is, here's his IMDB: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0003930/. Freaking AWESOME!!! I feel like I'm rubbing elbows with the stars. Now, how do I become one is the real question......

My husband should write!

After reading his well written version of the incident at Universal Studios, I hand an epiphany. My husband should write. Sometimes he tells me or his coworker stories when he's bored just as well as he told the Universal Studios one. Please vote in the comments. Thank you.

Universal Studios - 房子的恐怖

This will be a story told at Halloween for generations to come. What you're about to hear may not be suitable for children under the age of 1.

Yesterday, Breann and I decided we would spend a few hours at Universal Studios for our weekend date. Our date was going great like usual. We were happy, healthy, and having a great time. As we walked into the park, I felt something was off. After a few minutes of trying to figure out what was off, we decided to get into line at the House of Horror. At first I thought this attraction was going to consist of looking at costumes, masks, crazy horrific props used on film, and such, but to my surprise this was going to be an interactive sport.

As we were standing in line, two Asian ladies kept bumping into us. On a side note, if you've ever stood in line and had this happen to you, you'll know how annoying this typically is, but for me, I would have rather had them bumping into me for another 10 minutes than what was about to happen.

At the start of our "house of horror maze/spook alley," my eyes were initially drawn to the creepiness of the fully-decorated haunted trail. The walls were covered with thick spider webs. The floor was dark and dirty. A feeling of evil overcame me. Then it happened. The moment my freedom to choose...all came to an end; as if the constitution had been burned right before my eyes. Remember the two Asian ladies from behind us in the line?

"...and then all of a sudden, from out of the darkness, came 4, old, wet, dead hands which grasped my shirt in complete distress." The ladies, who had been "crowding us" in the line, were now FULL-ON holding to the back of my shirt for DEAR LIFE! They were trembling in fright as we moved through the "MAYBE BE TOO SCARY FOR CHILDREN UNDER 13" labyrinth. I was getting very annoyed with this. With every step we took, they took 2 more, squeezing me tighter and tighter. If I were a zit, I would have popped after the first squeeze. This was going on WAY longer than I thought it should have, so I quickly devised a plan.

The maze cleared open into a "viewing area" where the crowd could stand a little taller again and compose themselves from the "very scary" maze. With the two ladies still clenched to my shirt, Breann and I decided we would "pretend" to take a breather in this "intermission." The ladies let go of my shirt and decided to do the same. Not more than 5 seconds after THEY were amused with the "NOT SCARY ANYMORE" scenery, Breann and I sneaked past them and continued on the rest of the maze. At that moment I realized I was not going to let them hold me back anymore (no pun intended).

We finished the maze and never saw the ladies again...but that day will forever haunt me.

June 11, 2010

Happy Birthday Brooke!

Hope you have a good one.

Headshots

I forgot to post my head shots and a few people have commented on the one from my website via e-mail. I figured I'd blog it. First is my Commercial, the second is my Theatrical. Also, I booked a Featured role in a Non-union film. So I get another line on my resume which i my main focus right now, so I'm really excited about it. My first day for that job was Saturday...YAY!

Commercials

Ok, so the guy, Brian, that selected me for the JumpSport Fitness Trampoline Commercial wants me to do 2 commercials. This weekend. Yay!

The Complete Package

K, This was a reality TV show of a modeling competition I was in. It is totally raunchy, dirty, and disgusting. A girl flashes the camera in the first 5 sec. and they blurred it out in case you want to skip that. That's the worst part. They made it so bad because they wanted it to be picked up to be aired and if it wasn't interesting enough they wouldn't get the picked up. Basically, it's a joke of a modeling competition. They like to make jokes out of people because that's interesting. I was my normal self. So far they haven't made me look stupid. If you're just interested in seeing me, I'm in at 25 sec. to 33sec. Girls do crazy things when they're under pressure.



Oh by the way, I lost to the "got rats high and cut their heads off and got their brains" girl. I will admit I cannot compete with that. Sexy really has been redefined. Oh, boy. I just laugh about it. (She's on from 1:45-1:53 if you're interested in the comparison they made.)

That Noise "The Way We Are"

Ok, This is the music video I was in. I wanted to give you all a fair warning that it's totally evil and scary in nature and I was a dead girl with slit wrists and I'm wearing a peach dress that is sleeveless. That Noise is a DEATH METAL BAND. The band is sitting at a table playing Russian roulette and people are cheering them on and I am encouraging the game. I am not looking for a judgment or critique of the work. I just wanted to be open and honest about what I choose to do in regards to my career good or bad. So please don't judge me. If you just want to see me I'm in the first 20 sec. to 55 sec.

JumpSport Fitness Trampoline

I booked a part in a commercial. My first commercial, and the funny part about it was that I was about a half hour late (which I never allow, I just got lost in the building, yes I got lost in the building trying to find the right room.) I finally got there and they were literally getting up out of the seats and packing up to leave when I showed up. I asked them if I could audition and they allowed me. It was quite short. They kind of just stared at me and I totally thought it was over, but I just kept on being myself until they seemed to have seen enough of me. I thought I wasn't going to get anything. I guess not. I booked a small speaking role. They said hardly any dialogue, but hey, I'm happy. I can still put that on my resume. Yay!

Updates on Acting

Film: The Complete Package (Reality TV) - Pilot episode
Greek (TV)- Extra Interviewed Candidate
That Noise (Music Video) - Creepy Girl Presenting Gun

I'm working on getting into film work in acting and I've met some cool people along the way. One of which was at the music video Maria Olsen whom I'm very excited to ask her all of my questions as she accepted me as a friend on facebook. She's quite efficient as you can tell from her IMDB. (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm1864017/) Catch you later, I need to book myself some auditions.

Our poor dog

About 2 Sundays ago our dog fell off a chair onto his leg and he was yipping pretty badly. We thought his leg was broken, luckily it wasn't, but his leg was in a lot of pain. So the Doc. put him on pain meds and an anti-inflammatory. This is what our poor baby ended up looking like when we got home.






He NEVER lets his mouth hang open! He was pretty out of it.

Cooking

I did some experimental cooking today. If it turns out good, I tell you what I did. It's really pretty, and it smells good, so those are good signs right?

Car Burglary

Ok, that's actually Michael's version of the story. I would like to clarify that none of us were hurt. Also, Michael has not mentioned that they broke in to 2 cars (including mine), and they stole 1. I was so sad when I added up the damage, cause those suckers banked from my car. The jerks got about $1,500 worth of stuff from my car and the damage that they caused to my car is going to cost about $950. But they were nice enough to leave my insurance papers (which doesn't cover it), some rubber bands, and some napkins....probably for the tears. So Dad, I'm with you. I would rather have dead criminals than this crap. Too bad I'm only packen pepper spray for now. Who knows, I might have to upgrade. I could go back to Hai Dong Gum Do (Korean Sword Martial Arts) and obtain a real sharp sword, I could buy a squirt gun and spray paint it black and carry it in my purse, so criminals think I have a real gun. How much fun would that be? To have the bad guys think I have a real gun and then call the police, and then when they have the criminals in hand cuffs, show them that it was a fake gun. Then be like "NA NA NA NA NA NA!" Oh Boy, the possibilities. Maybe I could even take a couple of real gun classes.....Whoa, that could be scary, but I also wouldn't mind knowing how to handle a gun.

Side Notes about investigation: Is it odd that I happened to be wide awake from 3am-6am, and the burglary started from 3am-about 4am? Is it also strange that the car that was stolen was the wife of the only other person that had his car broken into besides my car? Is it not also strange that one must have a garage clicker in order to get in or out of the gated garage? What about the fact that the manager is hesitant to help us in some way in regards to the incident, but Catherine is totally helpful? Hmmm... maybe I should start my own investigation... MUAH HA HA HA!!!!

(Don't worry, the police have picked up on all of this information)

By the way, I'm not going insame.

MUAH HA HA HA!!!!!!

January 31, 2010

P.S.

Oh, and we don't have comprehensive coverage with our car insurance, so...we'll be paying for everything.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Friday morning Breann was awoken to the sound of a police officer pounding on our front door. Apparently, someone had broken into her car and stolen everything from inside, including a $3 bottle of lotion. The culprit has yet to be found but in case you were wondering what the car looks like right now, you can take a look at a few of the images shot at the scene of the crime:




















Now, you're probably thinking, "Why didn't they steal the entire car if they had the guts to steal her lotion??" Well, they were too busy stealing someone else's car and breaking into 2 other vehicles. Apparently, due to the fact that there aren't many available jobs now, people have resorted to stealing possessions that retail at nearly $3:












Well, the way I look at it is this...our car wasn't stolen and neither one of us were hurt (except me - Michael - I was emotionally damaged when I found out that not only did they take the lotion, but they also took our brand-spanking-new bag of unopened Costco trailmix!) The nerve! But we're fine now. It's just a matter of time before this happens again, and when it does...we'll be ready. Our car will be equiped just like the one below:



Now, actually, I don't think we'll go to extremes (such as above) but we are thinking of getting a car alarm. But all is well. We're still as much in love as we were when we got married, if not, more. Thanks for listening, I mean, reading.

Michael

If you have any ideas for the young women please let me know. I've been wanting to hang with the young women ever since I've been out of young women's. YAY!
