'Out of your Dreams' from Oklahoma!
Hellow, my dear fellow human beings...
Well, I've kept it from some of you for a couple of weeks... but, I got good news
Yours truly, is no longer unemployed!
I got a nice, little Runner
gig goin' on till Christmas
. I'm hoping not to jinx it by saying how lovely and fun it's there... ... Whacha been up to?
Well, workin'... I get so tired each day, mentally at least, so all I can do when I get home... is collapse
into my soft, soft, smelly sofa with some Spongebob
... and more recently with a revived love for Penn and Teller
While on the subject... go to www.pennandteller.com and read some of their 'diaries'. It's well worth it
. I've been reading some whilst at work... Both of them seem like really intelligent people, very reasonable and fun.
Of course, the appearance of 'truth' can be manipulated... but this seems genuine indeed!
Teller speaks of his parents much and with great love and respect. Mr Teller is an excellent painter I hear (and 'his kid'
, wrote a book on the subject also
). His language is quite sweet, beautiful and accurate...
fans would know that R. J. Teller used to be Latin teacher, before his magic days, and is still a grammar nut (
As he wrote at some point).
The slightly louder, taller half: Penn, is very much verbose here. I found all his articles/diaries very entertaining.
He writes more about the showbiz, the 'One Show' as he says... lol I always assumed he'd be a scary, tough-talkin' fella, intimidating and fast-paced.
I found out that he loves to have fun, fights for the 'individual right to freedom' (lol, just read his account of how his goolies
were grabbed at an airport
and he fought a battle, but not the war... the guy has strong feelings, but he isn't some show-biz diva... he is quite reasonable, in fact.), has great passion for his art (he's taken up Jazz, bass-playing and from his accounts, he's improving and loves it...). I see a person who loves a challenge, and even though he might fail at first, he's going to go on, and get satisfaction from getting better.
lol also read of his 'Liquid Nitrogen Ice cream' adventures, and the day he and a friend hired a 'Genie Lift' and had a day goofing around with it around his courtyard.
These two illustrate perfectly, that you can be famous and not be a complete idiot and self-important shit.
We hear of all these 'celebrities' and those in the acting community who take to drugs and whine how difficult their life is... Shut the f*** up! Penn doesn't drink,.. at all! (Hooray for the man, neither do I...) and both of them are strongly against drugs. Neither of them seem to be self-obsessed. Why, every one of Teller's journals dealt with either his parents or his work... (~artonfire
read his journals about the time he learned to eat fire, not a note of whining or complaining!) Although Penn tells us of his adventures, they are never 'Look at ME, Me, me...', these are more like honest accounts for those who might be interested, from a man whose job just happens to make magic and he just happens to live in Vegas.
He's noted on several, lol numerous occasions how talented everyone around him is.
...They are very cool, and go get their videos...
, besides Teller is just as sweet-lookin' as ten years ago.
Ohh... what else...
OH YEAH! I went breakdancing today!
It was a beginners' class... but hell, it was tough. We did the 'steppy, steppy' the 'spinny, spinny' on the ground, some leg-twirls...
I couldn't do all the moves, lol and spent kissing the floor more than actually 'Breaking', but
I didn't care if I looked like a dork! I had tons of fun... very pleased in finding that I am quite fit. :jark: Just imagine jumping about whilst crouching. Yer legs starting to hurt right?
... Mine did too, but since I've been going to the gym, I had the endurance to keep going. My upper thighs and inner muscles are letting themselves known, so it's quite good for the 'flabby' bits
. There were quite a few of newbies, so I wasn't the only one mopping the floor!
... RnB hip hop some other week!
Watched some 'Lee Evans in Scotland' yesterday... damn, he's guaranteed to make me laugh out loud, tears in eyes and all every time! ... Depressed, tired, doesn't matter... I will do my best impression of a hyena everytime
. Yesterday, I lay back on a sofa,
choking on laughter... tears running down my cheecks. lol the Giggle spasms were so bad, I thought I was gonna barf :vomit:. lol This is why I can never go to a live stand-up of his, I am guaranteed to embarass myself, royally and completely... Clubbing Befriended
You know who you are...
