That's the only way to describe how I'm feeling right now. Wow. Things move pretty fast out here in LA LA land. So I found out last night at around 6pm that I booked the pilot! It's a "top of show guest star" role and I'm SUPER excited about it! Then, I find out that it's shooting in....Vancouver! Canada!! Even cooler! YAY! THEN, I find out that they are flying me out there TOMORROW morning for 10 days! Wow. Crazy how things happen so fast! So while they are telling me about the "car" that's picking me up first thing Sunday morning to take me to LAX so I can get on my firtst class flight to dawns on me that hel-lo - I have yet to get a passport! Whoops! My manager Jean Marc has been on me about this for a few years now, and the possibility that I will work out the country someday soon seemed so far-fetched to me that I just kept putting it off until "later". It seems like "later" ended up "sooner" and now I can hear his big "I told you so!" in my head as I'm trying to figure out what to do! But I think it will all work itself out. I'm dealing with the whole passport issue today - trying to get it taken care of and fed-ex'd to my hotel in Canada while I'm there, so I can have a way back into the states! I also have to pack and get everything in order so I can leave for a couple of weeks.
But I'm pretty excited because it's my first official "top of show guest star"! (and my first official first class flight!) heehee :) I'll be sure to post all about it - step by step - and take lots of pictures! I'm sure it will be cold there! Gotta remember to pack some warm clothes!
Man, this feels really good! If this is any indication as what the rest of the year will be like for me - I'm pretty excited!!!
Thanks everyone for your support - especially during my tough patches - and now with the success! :) I really do appreciate it!
Noting like a good job to lift your spirits, huh? ;)
