i had my first audition today, and it went AWESOMELY! dude, i was TOTALLY in my element. it was very weird how relaxed i was when i went in and while i was reading the part of "lori" - the bitchy one! in fact, i'm afraid that i was so relaxed, i didn't quite come off as the bitch i wanted to be! hahaha! &=D
i'm thinking this might be my release, my undiscovered talent, my PROZAC! i've been in such an incredibly foul mood all freaking week long. until tonight - i shot out of bed at 6p (because i ALWAYS lay down and sleep when i get home, because that's what DEPRESSED PEOPLE DO, IS SLEEP A WHOLE DAMN LOT), and i remembered suddenly that i had scheduled this audition for tonight. i was like "omg, shit!" so i jumped in the shower, and while i was giving my acceptance speech, ricky came in and scared the ever-loving shit out of me. i'm pretty sure i pooped myself, but it's a good thing i was in the shower. i turned around and screamed, and it was the most horrendous sound i'd EVER heard come out of my mouth. it sounded like an animal in heat or something.
i talked to heather later on, and she said she was at home alone one day, and something scared her and she did the same thing. she was like, "thank god i was by myself!" i was like, "well, i wasn't - but thank god he didn't have the tape recorder!" it was like someone killing cattle. or one cattle. a cat. no, not a cat. a cow. but i bet cows sound more effiminate than i did. it was like, "MWWAAAAAHHH!!!," but in this deep, gutteral tone.
ahhh, so you want to know more about my audition, eh? well, ME TOO! i was so freaking excited, i couldn't even hardly fill out the form. they took my picture and videoed me, and then after i took my clothes off, they requested that i put them back on. jk. no, really, the dude took my pic, and i was like, that whole weird eyebrow thing i do, and he was like, "oh, we do this with everyone." riiiiiight.
so, i read for lori. the first reading - not so good, because i didn't read through it first, and i was confused at who she was talking to and who she was looking at, so i kinda stumbled through that - that piece should have been my golden goose, because they were like, "just insert your own expletives - don't worry - you're not going to offend us!" so i cursed as much as i COULD, after all the years of baby-proofing my language in front of other people. now, they're REQUESTING that i curse. i half expected my mom to come bursting through the door and wring my neck. so the first part, i felt a lil awkward.
second part, arik read for the guy in the scene, so it was easier for me to bounce off of him, and i did MUCH better that time. i was like, "i'm sorry, guys - i know i'm a total noob, but can i read through this first?" they're like, "sure! sure!"...........*crickets* *more crickets* i was reading as fast as i could, knowing they're like, "come the frig on, dinnertime!" and i always get nervous if people are waiting on me.
but i got done, and they're all "hey, that was great! you did a fabulous job, etc, etc!" but they didn't SAY etc. they just gave me props and said callbacks would be in a couple of weeks. so, i jumped up and shook everyone's hands...AGAIN, and picked my bag up and almost spilled the entire contents - you know, maxipads, tampons, midol, douches, used & unused - the usual. but i was more nervous leaving than i was coming in! it was crazy!
anyway, i'm in a stellar mood right now, even though i have to clean up cat poop. and it's WAY past my bedtime, so i'm going to be a sight in the morning! crap, and i forgot to eat again! dangit. well, once i'm a star, then i'll no longer have to feed myself, so that will help. and wiping after using the bathroom has REALLY gotten old, so it's a good thing i'll have someone to do that, too. *phew* i can't wait!
bwahahaha! who am i kidding? i'll be lucky if i'm not wiping human asses for the rest of MY life! i doubt i got the part, but it was really, really fun to do it. i told heather, me and her have to get together and doing some dramatic readings, so i can get used to this! so, the cat is out of the bag - i want to act. i've always wanted to act, but i'm too friggin lazy to do anything about it! if it's not set in stone or something that i have to do to make a living, screw it! but we'll see - now that i'm a seasoned veteran of the acting community (*snort*), maybe i'll be more inclined to show my face around town!
