So I botched the cold read, I was asked to improvise and he loved it when I did. They asked me to come in and audition again with the lines memorized. This will be good. Thanks for caring guys. I hope I get this one. I really like the character.

Table Read

The Table Read went very well. I got a lot of positive feedback on my work and they loved me. They're bringing me in for an audition for a different role today. The other role required nudity and Dawn, the wonderful lady who brought me in to read, told him that I don't do that and then suggested me for the role Abigail instead. If they didn't like my work they wouldn't even bother. This is a very good sign and they seemed excited to get me to read for it before the writer has to leave. Pray for me to grasp this new character well. Thank you. Your prayers seem to be working. :)

Managing Cravings

I have been vegan for about 5 months now and I haven't had a craving for about 2 months until now. I just realized it's because I've waiting until 3:30pm to have a proper lunch. Feed yourselves good food! Love you guys. xoxo

See it tonight!

Happy Anniversary to Mom and Dad (Clyde and Patti)! Have fun night out tonight. We love you both :)

Table Read

This Saturday I have a VERY important table read for what I believe is a strong-supporting role in a multi-million dollar film. They're still looking for name value. Name value = better distribution, better distribution = I become more of a name value if I'm in the film. This is how I've heard the pros do it. They don't audition, they table read. A lovely woman in the business named Dawn Krantz called me and invited me to this. She said there's no guarantee but that it's a great opportunity for actors like me. She's one of the producers who is very excited about the project Red Wing and I think she's very interested in my success. This could potentially be another really big boost to build up my career. So if you could please pray for me to do very well at this table read that would really mean a lot to me. Thank you guys for supporting me.

Portobello Mushroom Bowl

This one is really easy, fast, and tasty.

1 Portobello mushroom
Uncle Bens (long grained wild rice)
Olive oil

Preheat over to 400 degrees. Cut stem off mushroom, discard, poke holes in the center of the mushroom, and steam for 5 min. Prepare rice by the instructions with olive oil. Put 1-2 tbs olive oil in cap of mushroom try to spread evenly. Then fill the cap with the finished rice and place in oiled casserole dish and bake for 5 min. Serve and enjoy.

This makes one serving, but the total rice can fill up to 3 caps.

Optional: I sauted some some small diced veggies including red onions, garlic, and peppers and mixed it in the rice and it was delicious.

Seriously good hummus!

I babysit kids every week and my picky 8 year old ate this and liked it.

1 can black beans (with half the leftover juices)
1/2 lemon (all the juices)
1 Tsb. chopped parsley
1 tsp. garlic salt
Bag of Kirkland organic corn chips

place all ingredients (except chips) in blender, blend on low until consistency is like re-fried beans. So delicious.
