I have taken a short quick vacation and I am in Washington D.C. I flew in on July 4th!!!! Fireworks wohoooo! Actually it has been a nice getaway. I find leaving Los Angeles is always a good thing it helps to recharge and focus because usually when I go out of town it usually means an encounter with the familia, this time being my uncle, a generous man who is a poster child for the American dream and living the good life. A sound, sensible business man and who has taken to being the mentor extrodanaire to my dear cousin (his nephew). The reason being is my cousin is male, going to law school and knows how to kiss ass very well (don't worry I love him to bits) so I am writing this as the two men are laughing, having a jolly old time. This is following a discussion where my uncle basically told me it's time to get real forget about this acting b*&>Sh@# (can't you just feel the love). So I've decided to honor the month of July and my independence I am going to get real!!!!!!! The reality is I am an actor period, if you can't deal with it that is your problem not mine. The reality is I'm not getting a desk job, applying for law school or any other graduate program, I'm going to be schlepping to auditions, going to acting classes, involving myself in every artsy, entertainment avenue and so no you won't get to brag to your friends or club buddies or I don't know who else about the fancy school I'm going to, the big raise, the wonderful corporate job I've got but hey that's his loss. He could be talking about how I'm going after my dream,come from another continent to a city I had never been in and even though most of the times it's tough, this is what I've chosen and you know what I'm happy with that. But If we want to GET REAL, BRUTALLY HONEST, THE HONEST GOD GIVEN TRUTH IS the only person that has bragging rights on MY LIFE is MOI!!!!! And that's getting real OK!!
P.S. The AWM and drink of the month will be up soon, sorry for the delay
