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!

Days of Reflection: Day Three

Day Three: Eight ways to win your heart.

Hrmm…I don’t know if there are eight ways!  I hate this one the most. This one is a toughy.  If I had to take a guess on how I would break it down, I would have to go something like this…

8. Struggle – There’s something about overcoming personal struggles that build a kind of humility I find incredibly fascinating.  When you work in retail, you can tell who has and who hasn’t.

7. Food – It’s okay to NOT obsess about eating this or that because it’s got sugar or fats.  Don’t be afraid of the food.  In moderation, everything is fine.

6. Interesting – I believe that I suffer from a mild form of ADD, so if a person can remain interesting, well then you are 95% of the way there.

5. Manners – That gets high marks.  It doesn’t take much longer than being rude, so why foul the atmosphere?

4. Compassion – When you can, you donate to people who are less fortunate than you are.

3. Emotionally Secure – You aren’t afraid to let your emotions take you for a ride.

2. Playful – You can’t take yourself too seriously.


Humor – Laughter is wonderful.  While the occasional fart joke is okay, I prefer well thought out humor which ties to…

Intelligence – I love people that I can learn from.

Getting my Titanic on with Melissa Jones (now Jones-Chamness)

Here I am on the Tahoe Queen. We were celebrating Perry’s mom’s birthday on a little cruise around Tahoe.  It was a good dinner, great music, and a lot of nutty pictures of his mom! That particular moment in time was so freeing.  As though there were no worries.  It’s fun to get swept up in someone else’s energy and have fun without restraint.  It’s from people like her that I remind myself  you have to keep trying stuff that you don’t normally do.  Because were I not with her, I doubt this moment would have even happened.
