here’s the skinny...
Current mood: jedi
this week, i was an extra in a music video. i guess i'm a video hoefessional now. it was a pretty cool experience. even though there was a lot of standing around, it was a great opportunity to meet people and take my mind off of being unemployed. i was a pretty early call time, and we were there pretty much all day.
i doubt they'll show me in the video because i was background. however if they do show me, i hope they show me from the neck up! lol! i say this because they put my black ass in some SKINNY JEANS!!! i was devistated!! lmao! the jeans i brought were perfectly fine, but then they were like, do you have any jeans that are tighter? i told them that i had some more that FIT! they then handed me a pair of size 33 jeans, i was cool with that. i then looked at the tag and it said "SKINNY". i was like, "OH HELL NO!" but i took it with a grain of salt... i don't see how any person with a penis can wear those things! i mean, i had to jump, just to button the damn things. but after a while of walking around and doing squats, they became somewhat tolerable, but still tight. i guess now i can cross that off of my "things to do before i die" list.
skinny jeans... sheesh... don't laugh, it ain't funny! okay, yeah it is. i didn't think my big ass legs could fit, but they did. and just to think a few years ago, i would have never fit in something like that. so i guess it's a compliment.
i saw a familiar face while on set. james from bb6 & bb7 was there also. small world huh? you know he had jokes about me and my jeans... bastard! but that's my boy.
since this was my first background job, i was ignorant to how background people are treated. they are somewhat treated like shit! a lot of them didn't even get a break when they were suposed to, but i guess that's how it goes. i know it won't be like this always, so i guess i'm just paying my dues. i did meet some interesting people during my time and that's a good thing.
the hunt is still on... nothing as of yet, but still actively looking. i feel like craigslist should be paying me, as much as i'm on their site. it's all good... so right now, to pass the time, i've been up in the gym just workin on my fitness (fergie) . also i've been in the process of designing some t-shirts. since i don't have a tv right now, it's allowing me to put my energy into more productive things. it's something i've been wanting to do for a long time, even before bb. luckily i have great people in my life that encourage me to go after what i want. i've been doing my research so i can do it right and hopefully make a good impression with a good product.
i love t-shirts!!
if i could, i would wear them for any occaision. you know, places like classy restaurants, weddings, professional environments, and even my funeral. yeah that's right: bury me in a t-shirt. i mean, if you go out, at least be comfortable, or look comfortable right?
that's about all for now...
