Long overdue update.
Here are some pictures from The Jewelry Box wrap party. From top: the cake that made it all worth it (just kidding!), Laurelin (grip) and me, LaToya (hair and make-up) and me, Raynna (producer). It was a good time. That was Moday night.
Tuesday night Aravind (the DP fpr Jewelry Box) invited Laurelin and me over for dinner. We were supposed to be there around seven , but I wanted to bring my car to the garage on the way there. We ended up having to wait (in the rain) a loooong time for the stupid tow truck to get there. He was an hour late, after he told us it'd take an hour to get there, but we finally got the car to the garage, then got lost on the way to Aravind's house, and finally go tthere at 10, only 3 hours late. Aravind had made us all this marvelous Indian food and had it waiting the whole time, and he was so sweet about the whole thing, as was Laurelin. We ended up staying there until like 4, just watching movies, eating, and talking, even though the other two had stuff to do the next day.
Wednesday Mr. Mechanic called me, and informed me that it would be $600 to fix my car. I talked to Daniel (my mecanic brother) and my dad, who talked to Mr. Mechanic and told him to fix it. I also called the owner of Sage Vegetarien Cafe, who told me to come in Friday at 2:30 for an interview. So I was really hoping my car would be fixed on time.
Thursday afternoon just as I sat down to plot the bus route to Sage Cafe (just in case!) the mecanic called and told me that my car was ready and it'd only be $200 to fix, so that was super exciting and thanks to everone who prayed for my car situation because God definately answered. I called Laurelin and she very graciously came and picked me up and brought me to get my car.
Thusday night Christina and I drove my car to this totally awesome hippie place to see "Who Killed the Electric Car?" It was a totally cool experience. So, we're driving down this normal-looking residential road, when all of a sudden we see tons of hippie cars parked on the side of the road (you know, old station wagons with 'ross perot' stickers all over them). We also see a big board with "Movie Tonight" handwritten in big letters. So we figure that's the place, park and head down the driveway, expecting to find some kind of outdoor venue, or at least a sign. Nope. Only an old farmhouse with a woman on a cellphone on the porch. we started to walk around to the back when she motioned toward the woods. It looked like just woods, but we headed over and discovered a path, marked with candles, which went through the woods, over a bridge, and eventually led to an empty old swimming pool which was full of hippies, both young and old, who were watching the movie. It was a good time, adn an interesting movie.
Friday I went to Sage for my interview, which didn't really even happen. I basically walked in and he gave me the job, which was cool. That night Laurelin and I went to ComedyWorx, an improv thing in Raleigh. It was ok. And that brings us to today, and I refuse to write any more. Good day, dear reader.
