Time for new Halloween decorations

4 Oct

Well here it is Tuesday, and, I find myself with a rare day and a half off — no go sees, no fittings, no photo shoots, no casting — just 1.5 days to myself to do as I wish.  So, what do I decide to do?  Well, ok, write in my blog was the oblivious answer…  But, the real answer is I did my Fall cleaning.  (Some people do Spring cleaning, I do it twice a year and do a Fall AND Spring cleaning.)

But, I digress… I was doing my Fall cleaning, and, stumble upon some old photos, and, I put a few on my Facebook page, I sorted through clothes and made a pile of clothes I no longer wanted for Goodwill and for Dress for Success.  And, then I found my boxes of Holiday stuff — everything from Halloween to Christmas to Valentine’s Day and beyond… I swear I could open my own party store I have so much junk!

Anyhow, my Halloween decorations are looking a bit sad.  And, I figure that is how I will spend part of my day off – shopping for Halloween decorations.  I guess I’m just a big kid at heart, but, I happen to love Halloween.

Oh sure, I could get into the whole discussion about the Pagan roots of Halloween or perhaps discuss the Salem witch trials, but, I won’t…

First of all, I don’t feel like thinking that hard today, and, secondly, and, more importantly — when I get on topics that really excite me, I tend to get wordy and I get too deep into philosophical and psychological thought patterns that would probably bore the skin off the typical reader so I will spare you…

And with that I am off to get my new decorations 🙂

Ok…  Who’s going to message me first to have a discussion on this topic?!?  I have a few guesses… Let’s see if I am right!

Wedding update

23 Feb

Yesterday I publicly announced that I’m getting married.  And, for those who have emailed or posted on Facebook with congratulations, I thank you from the bottom of my heart.  I promise you Gary is a wonderful guy who has a great job, and, he isn’t after money nor a show business career.  He’s simply “the one”.

I’ve noticed one thing in my life, weddings come in spurts…  The last time I experienced a wedding spurt was about 3 years ago when a friend from college was getting married, followed by two of my cousins all within 18 months of each other.

This time… it began with my best friend in NYC, Elena when she announced her engagement to a wonderful guy from Australia last year.  Then over Christmas one of my life long friends who happens to be gay announced his wedding/commitment ceremony, and, now here it is me making the “big” announcement.

As for “where” we are holding the wedding- well that’s still up in the air.  I’m from suburban Chicago, and, Gary is a native New Yorker.  We both have large families and much of both families are scattered throughout the Country or in my case the world since I have close relatives in England and Ireland.  So, this is rapidly becoming an International affair, but, that’s actually a good thing.

I’ve already been contacted by no less than 3 dozen wedding planners, and, I’m getting bombarded with all types of wedding venue ideas.  It’s actually fun looking at the different venues because each is so unique that it would give the wedding a completely different feel and theme.  So we’re discussing everything from how big of a wedding we want to the type of wedding we want.

In the meantime, I’m gearing up to head to both England and Australia.  England is for work and Australia for Elena’s wedding.  I can’t wait!!

Stay tuned for updates!
