My big half weekend

There's been a cold/flu going around the set, and in an effort not to get sick, I've been swallowing fistfuls of supplements all day every day. While this has succeeded in that I haven't gotten sick, I did go out for drinks after work Friday night, and I got thrown for the proverbial loop by two martinis - lucky I wasn't driving.
I guess it shouldn't surprise me that taking that stuff makes you more sensitive to alcohol. I just wish I'd been smart enough to figure it out beforehand.

After being incapacitated all day yesterday, I'm now left with half a weekend. I have to finish my shopping, ship all of my gifts (which I was going to do yesterday and now won't get to do until next weekend which means I'll have to pay extra for express shipping), do my laundry, get the car serviced, and try to clean the house.

Guess which one of these I'm going to let slide. That's right - the house. I'll just have to live like a pig for another week (although I'm not home more than a few hours at a stretch anyways).

I also have no food, and that's not an exaggeration. There is absolutely nothing edible in my house - I used the last of the coffee this morning, and although I'm tempted to dig into my earthquake supplies, I'm not going to do it.

I'm going to go to the Hollywood Farmer's Market and get a tamale from Corn Maiden. I'm not going to buy more food as it's just going to rot in the fridge - this movie's going another two weeks.

You need to have someone come over and do that house.

Lucy charges $60 for 5 hours and does an amazing job.

Without her, I'd be living in squalor.

I'm with AJ. Before my housekeeper started coming I was living in squalor. She does laundry, organizes my closets, does windows... etc. She is amazing. I told my boyfriend I wanted to marry her, which was a little awkward.

Yum, Corn Maiden tamales. Blue corn for me. BTW, my husband the grip said (after seeing your pic of the missing handrail) if the handrail's missing, contact the lot safety person. And if somebody gets hurt, they get to put their name in front of the studio name (grin)

In going through archives (June 2005) of your blog I read that you were employed on "The Tick" and you found it to be "a total nightmare".
Curious as to why.

Peggy,
Thanks to the L.A. Times, you are now under a microscope. Bum deal, I know. You are going to hear from hundreds of peoples thoughts and feelings about what you write. Please don’t let any fucking yahoo get you down about “syntax” or what you write. For the first time in years, people have a peek into the machine that keeps the films and television coming down the pipe. Keep doing what you are doing sister.
We all thank you .
Much Respect,
