I have finally found some edibles that are powerful enough to work on me. They are awesome and I have been having a lot of fun with them these past two weeks. They're totally awesome for planes, long days on set, and shows...which is all I've done recently.
So, there was that whole HIV issue. That was terrible. My heart goes out to those that are immediately involved. I am fine and retested to just be better safe than sorry. Everyone should get tested regularly.
It seems as though everything is under control but most shoots have been postponed for the next couple weeks.
So, I went to Vegas. I was getting stir crazy and I had a free flight. Unfortunately, I woke up with food poisoning the day of my flight. I rested all day and managed to make the last flight out. I slept the whole way there and was really feeling much better by the time we landed. But then some guy ran by me in the aisle and knocked my water all over me. It was freezing and super visible and it happened RIGHT before I got off the plane. I was not very amused.
So, I grab my bag and head to the hotel, stumble into my room, and straight into a warm bath. After that, I passed out in a super comfy bed. I rock Vegas SO hard.
The next day was much more enjoyable. I slept in late. Took my sweet time getting ready. Hung around in the room watching TV. Every time I'm in Vegas, there is an NCIS marathon on. EVERY TIME! So, of course, I watched that. Eventually, I went out of the room and walked around the MGM a bit. It's alright. I lost six dollars on a slot machine and that was all I was willing to gamble away. I had dinner at this amazing Italian restaurant. It was, by far, one the best meals I've ever had in my life and most certainly the best service I ever received. Lee was amazing and so was the sommelier. I tried carpaccio for the first time. It was delicious, omg! Who would've ever thought that raw meat, leaves, and cheese would taste like fuckin candy! CANDY! I got the meatball spaghetti and it was pretty damn good but anything is really good when there's white truffles on it. I fucking love those white truffles. I had donuts for dessert. They were good but too dense for my tastes. So by the end of that delicious meal, I was pretty drunk because I had 4 different alcoholic drinks in front of me.
After dinner, I went and had a few drinks with Lee, my waiter. He's a pretty chill guy. Learned a lot about the city from him and classic movies I'm supposed to have seen. Then I went back to my room and passed out in my comfy hotel bed. Like I said, I rock Vegas hard. ;)
The next day I got a late check out, stuck my bags at the concierge and walked around the hotel til my later flight. I had no idea that the MGM had actual lions in it until then. And baby lions, at that! Baby lions are cute.
It was absolutely gorgeous outside...
So I decided to hang out by the pool til I had to go. I was too lazy to go all the way back and change into a suit. So, I just took off my shirt and laid there, "felon-class" style, in my jean shorts.
It was an excellent, much needed mini vacation.
Then it was back to work on Monday! Only softcore g/g, though. Everyone is still playing it safe. It was for Penthouse and I got to work with the beautiful and charming Brooklyn Lee. Usually, they'll have the girls do a striptease in addition to their scene and that day they were all about period pieces so I ended up doing a 1950's striptease in rollerskates.
They were shooting 3D that day and quite a few girls too so, basically, I watited around for awhile in rollerskates. I actually had a lot of fun! There's like a warehouse at the studio and I just went in loops, Great Skate style, for like an hour. It was awesome and I made a little VIDEO.
This was the set that I did a half hour 3D rollerskating striptease on...
I fell a lot and I really hope they put some sort of fast motion blooper montage at the end of the striptease. I think that'd be hot.
After my striptease, I had to hang around awhile more. At the Penthouse studio, there's always some sort of air conditioning game happening where it gets either really hot or really cold, really fast. It always needs to be turned on or off and there's only one key to do it. So the game is finding out who has the key. Sometimes it's very difficult and the crew are very good at disappearing. This time, I gave up and decided to just go sit in my car for a bit with the heat on and listen to Ben Folds instead of all the hip hop that the girls play.
When I got back inside, they dressed me up for my g/g scene. They were going for a 1920's casino theme but I don't think it really came off that way in the end. They had a hard time finding any period clothing that would fit me. Ultimately, I wore the dress I wore for my Danni solo live chat and I got crotchless panties!!!
Here's Brooklyn standing in so they can test the lights and camera and what not.
The scene is kind of funny because she played a blackjack dealer and I was trying to teach her how to deal while we were taking stills and then I played a stripper who kind of convinces the blackjack dealer to try her profession....I've never stripped and Brooklyn used to. So it was just this funny little mix up. I think it's gonna turn out great. Some nice 3D pussy licking on a blackjack table. In the middle of the scene we "broke" the camera. It just stopped working and said "error". So, while they were fixing it, I snapped this shot of Brooklyn and I. She is so gorgeous.
After Monday, the rest of the week was prety mellow and lazy.
I got my Daniel Tosh tickets in the mail! I'm very excited to see him live. I've been a fan for a long time now.
Then I found this totally awesome Friday's. I was pretty disappointed at how little basketball decor there was but the food was really, really good. I underestimated Friday's.
I hung out in my bathtub and read the Ben Folds Lonely Avenue liner notes, then listened to the whole album while reading the lyrics. It was probably the most delightful non live musical experience I've ever had. Nick Hornby is a brilliant writer and I immediately ordered a few of his books. As well as a Saskia Hamilton book.
I painted my toenails...
I attempted to build my Lego Darth Vader TIE fighter....
But was missing the stickers and two pieces that I needed to finish a wing with. I have to go to the Lego store at some point now. :(
I went to see Mike Birbiglia do live stand up. I saw his tweet about the LA venue change the night before and bought tickets like immediately. He was on my list of comediens to see live and I'm glad I went. He was so funny and it was so awesome to hear new material. An extra little touch was that Maria Bamford opened for him and I LOVE her. She is so funny and adorable and reminds me of my best friend. It was the first comedy show I'd been to since I turned 21 and I DRANK!
And then last night was super fucking absolutely ridiculously amazing! I went to see Minus the Bear and Tim Kasher at the Wiltern. I was originally only going because I love Minus the Bear but then I found out that Tim Kasher was opening and it really became awesome. He was amazing solo and live. I hadn't seen him since I saw Cursive back when I was a high school sophmore. Then he randomly played Driftwood off of the Ugly Organ and I just...there are no words to describe the feeling but, I was just in love with the moment and it was fucking magical. Totally amazing nostalgia x12. He played an amazing set and I picked up his album at the merch table, which is very good.
Minus the Bear was fucking phenomenal, like always! They played a really different set list than when I saw them last and that was great because I got to hear a lot of older songs that I hadn't heard live in a very long time. And they played my favorite new song, Animal Backwards. Wanna know how to instantly start turning me on? Play that song. I get all tingly. Now, I'm gonna be honest here....I had a great spot on the floor on a short balcony. So, I had this wall railing in front of me to kind of lean on. It vibrated in the most awesome way during that song and it felt damn good. ;) The show was so awesome, I drank and danced and watched people get caught smoking weed while I chowed down on my marijuana peppermint bark.
I bought myself a new Minus the Bear shirt....
And then I thought it'd be funny to do this with my passes. If only I could've walked around the Wiltern like that...
A bunch of other totally awesome stuff happened last night that I can't brag about but basically, I had to double check everything this morning to make sure I didn't dream it. I didn't. So awesome.
Today I've just be hanging out, watching the Back to the Future marathon, doing laundry, cleaning and writing this here blog. If you've read this far through, know that I love you very much. ;)
I'll be on VSEX tomorrow evening from 6-10pm PST acting like a dork and letting people fuck me with a machine via remote. So, you know, if you're into that sort of thing...
