It's literally 100 degrees at my house today. Can plants get sunburned? I think mine are. Kyle (Phillip) and I have been discussing home-ownership lately. He just bought a house and is fixing it up. It gets so hot where I live that I have a few really sun-loving plants on my deck. The Jasmine is doing well, and it smells so nice as I walk by. I don't really have a green thumb or anything, but Dave (my husband) and I love to enjoy the evenings outside. Dave is an excellent BBQ-er (such a guy thing, right?!) and we love to have our friends over for a good BBQ and enjoy the sunset on our deck.
Last weekend Kyle hosted a kick-butt house-warming party at his house. He passed out a flyer at work - Kylepalooza was a hit. The stories from Kyle's all-night, frat-style party are slowly piling in. People we don't even know, who work at NBC, were approaching Kyle about it. Too funny. Dave and I went early because, and could only stay for a little bit. My little brother's first professional gig as a cellist in a symphony was the same night. My whole family turned out to listen to his debut performance. He was awesome.
I don't know about your work, but at Days, the studios can always be counted on to be the exact opposite of the temperature outside. When it's hot, like now, it's a meat-locker inside the studios. All the actresses are wearing robes in between scenes to keep warm on stage. It's hilarious. Sometimes in party scenes, we'll even have Ugg boots or slippers on under the dresses. Richard Bloore, the costume designer, made bunny slippers for Sami last year, and I asked if I could keep them in my dressing room, and now I wear them to set all the time. I recently had scenes with Ari (Nicole) and we were both laughing because even while I'm in my tallest heels, she was still taller than me in her slippers. Not fair!
Who's excited for the Days Fan weekend coming up?? My favorite event is Jim Reynold's (Abe) Basketball game. It's on Sunday at 2pm. I hope everyone who can come will come to Jim's game. It's for a good charity too.
And, yes, I've downloaded the desktop count-down to Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince. The question is, have I caved and tried to look for spoilers on the storylines??? NO!! (and if I had, I wouldn't tell you!)
