Why I Don't Date Celebrities

Get my mail today with one of my favorite movie rags, and lo and behold...the guy who hasn't called yet is featured in an article. Wow. It must really suck to be Jennifer Anniston and never be able to get away from reminders.

Yes Christina, I know, I'm "way hotter" than him anyway and he's "busy doing interviews and will call later." Sigh. But I'm alone on a Friday night, doing laundry and he's a brilliant novelist/moviemaker on a publicity tour, probably with playmate bunnies throwing underwear at him. Why couldn't he just work at the Coffee Bean down the street like many of the guys interested in me? Double sigh.

Hero had a mini-operation today to remove a lump. Nurse Sis is picking him up now, so he should be fine. I was too worried to tell you all about it. We'll get the biopsy results back next week. Took him Wdnesday to that management company that wanted to make Hero a star...they wanted $6,000 first.

Mom was denied from the care facility we wanted her to be at. On to Plan B, which means Monday would be the earliest she could be transferred out of the hospital. Though she's holding court there too...we hear all the nurses love her, and that she's been passing out Mom's Cancer cards right and left and showing everybody pix of Hero. None of her actual children, I hear :)

I still haven't written anything. Took a mini break. Next week it all begins. Mondays will be rewrites with a few friends on Probationary Period with the goal of a staged reading beginning of October. Tuesday is a rewrite class at UCLA - probably going to do Divas Inc or the High School Rom Com. Must decide by Sunday. Wednesday night is the TV spec class at UCLA. Every other Thursday is the continuation of my Tim Albaugh writer's group, sans Tim. We're all going to continue our screenplays from last quarter since only one of us actually finished (50 pages to go!).

So by mid September I'll have two feature screenplays and a drama spec ready to shop to agents and managers and another comedy ready for a rewrite. That should give me plenty of time to take advantage of the Mom's Cancer press we're going to be getting (already had one really intriguing offer I'm NOT allowed to say anything about, but it's damn exciting). Pedal to the medal.

Now if the universe would stop throwing "emergency" distractions in my path...

your favourite movie rag in the mail today?. I got my Script issue today, was that it? I just got me copy of CS a few days ago, sheesh why can't one of them publish on the 'other' month and spread it out (I feel a future rant coming on ha)

Kid Sis said...

Yeah, they do seem to all come at once...dumb of them!

John Donald Carlucci said...

I hate dating celebs too! They never want to talk about me! Me!

Kid Sis said...

Yeah, dammit! You're interesting, too!

John Donald Carlucci said...

That's what my mom says too!

Christina said...

Hey babe,
I'm doing laundry now...It's 11somthting pm. Friday night! Woohoo.

To be brief:

1. He will call. Laundry or dates are always good any night of the week.
2. Coffee bean guys okay. Good for the charms.
3. That agent was a FRAUD!
4. Mom's attitude is fab. So is yours.
5. Prayer for Mom.
6. Prayer for Hero.
7. Prayer for you babe.
8. Prayer for Nurse Sis.
9. The scripts will come.
10. You will get a break.
11. You are truly loved, gorgeous.
12. Sweet dreams tonight.

Kid Sis said...

Love you, beautiful!

Christina said...

Hey! I just realized I wrote a twelve (12) stepper....ha ha ha. Getting delerious. One load in the dryer. Sheesh.

The Dummy said...

Okay, here's your No Emergency Distractions Card I'm giving you. But just this once! :)

Just for fun, y'all have to visit this site:

I think I'll get the "I See Skinny People" T-shirt.

PS. Just say 'no' to the Universe.

PPS. You don't really need an megalomaniacal celebrity demanding you sublimate yourself and your talents for the sake of his fragile ego and his career... so I say you just use the Ex Mr. Aniston (who *is*, as Christina pointed out, going to call) for his body and let that be that.

NN,
I'm so sick of these skinny cokeheads. The latest People magazine is filled with them!

He's not really a celebrity, but you know, still very unsettling to open the magazine and read about his oscar potential. I was just excited to have butterflies in my stomach because some cool guy was looking at me...he didn't have to go and be all newsworthy on me. Activates the self-doubt.

DD, I've been LOOKING for one of those! Thanks!

Kid Sis said...

Okay, the Lindsay petition almost has 6,000 votes. Go sign it!

BR, already found a great match, if he calls.

This is why girls don't give real phone numbers out anymore.

American Knight said...

If he's smart (and therby worth it) he will call...

Shawna said...

What TV spec class are you in? I'm in Star Frohman's class on Wednesday nights...

Kid Sis said...

TAK, guess he's not smart.

Shawna, I'm in Neil Landau's class Wednesday night. Bummer!!! For a second there I was really excited...

American Knight said...

Sorry to hear that...
