Days of Reflection: Day Eight

You know, sometimes when you get involved with a production, you never know where it’s gonna lead or even better all the amazing people you will meet.  I feel so blessed that I have gotten to know all of these amazing and talented folks who have enriched my life to the nth degree.  Honest!  For example, today I got a text from Stephen, a cast mate from Sweet Charity and White Christmas, and it made me smile like a clown.  Sometimes you unfortunately lose track of some, and other times, like with Stephen, you KNOW you’ll keep in touch.  I can’t wait until I get to work with him again.

Day Eight: Three turn ons.

Yay, FINALLY an easy one!!  I don’t like the use of “turn on” because that implies a sort of biblical intimacy that just isn’t always the case.

3. Talent – I love performers!  I appreciate the fact that they can share an openness about themselves that transcend mere conversation.

2. Intelligence – I love to learn stuff.  It doesn’t even really matter what it is!  Things that I never thought I would ever need to know, have popped into the most random conversations.

1. Kindness – There is nothing more amazing than a person that helps others and asks for nothing in return.  There aren’t enough people in the world who have this capacity.  Society has turned most of humanity into a self serving entity.  So much so that when someone actually does something randomly kind, people don’t know how to react and begin offering stuff in an effort to not feel like something will be asked for at a later date.    It’s a damn shame.

Me and the BFF are goin' dancing

Who goes out in an ascot?  *Thumbs pointing to self* This guy!  haha! I just wish that we were standing a little closer or that she was feigning the other way.  Then it would look like I was snickering at her.  Also a little bummed that my knickers weren’t captured in the shot.  I worked really hard on them.  I can’t wait for the next Club Satori.  Its fun when the music is good.  The fact that they offer pear cider doesn’t hurt!!!  Cheers!

So what “turns you on”?  Or better yet, what qualities do you appreciate in others?  Is it something that you possess? Lemme know!

    I am going to have to agree with kindness!

      I really place a value on that because, there are plenty of intelligent and/or talented people out there that just don’t have an ounce of kindness. I mean beauty is skin deep, but ugly is to the bone!! So I am glad that you agree with me on kindness. Thanks for commenting!!

    Oh Gawd, that picture?! *laughs* Seriously! I think I wanna try the BBC goth night next. Satori’s doing a 80’s ska night next. Meh. Love these meme posts!

    • theactorvist says:

      I am willing to go and check it out. When’s the next one? If it’s really soon, then I don’t know if I can dress up in something. I can’t think of any 80’s ska. But it doesn’t sound too bad. Hahaha

      Lorena, thank you for being so amazingly supportive even though we’ve only known each other mere months! I love working with you and learning all of these wonderful things from you. And I love how unexpected funny you are!!
