My Eye Has No Work Ethic!

Does anyone like going to the eye doctor?
I mean, it isn't the worst visit you can have: as far as doctor visits- go-Ladies? (Spread em!) Men? (Cough!) You know exactly what I mean! It can always be worse.

But, they put drops in your eyes to numb them, then they poke you in the eyes, and then more drops, and then basically you can't see for a few hours. I am just sayin'!

I went today and still have 20/20 vision, yay me! That said, drawings are fuzzy sometimes, so will be ditching the old glasses for a slightly stronger prescription than the one I have now, and reflective lenses-which will help with the under light, the over head light, the lights in my eyes all the live long day, when I am working on tiny details!

Ironically the worst part of assistant animation/clean-up is drawing eyes! Your eyes need to be perfect so your character's eyes are perfect.

When I was little, really little, 12 lbs or so, a month into life, the doctor told my mom I would be crossed eyed unless I got surgery. Well if you knew my mom, you would know what she said, but then again at 3, they told her the same. I guess I had a lazy eye. Her solution, a view master.

It totally worked! And until high school when sometimes the alcohol had the best of me, or if I was reeeeeeeeeeeeeally (see how many Es? That is a lot-for dramatic effect) tired, I would get double vision. Well now that doesn't happen, but sometimes the tiny details are hard to see. Apparently this same lazy eye is just well being lazy.

It is like, I am working, and it decides on it's own to take a nap and then I can't see perfectly, so it is what it is. Nice to know it isn't my age or anything.


And it was a great excuse to shop! :0)

I did not get a view master-but I did get new frames that look awesome on me!!

"Who Would You Have Dinner With?"

In college and even some job applications that age old essay question always pops up: "Who would you have dinner with, dead or alive, if given the chance?"

In 10th grade, I answered Madonna because I thought she was strong, ambitious, smart and could do whatever she wanted. I admired her so much, and wanted to be like her in many ways-not a pop start-but I wanted to be like her spirit. I was living alone at the time (long story), and had really no one in my life to look up to and she was a role model to me.

In 12th grade we were asked the same question and again, I answered, Madonna for the same reasons. Although at this point I had moved in with my mother and my step-father, who hated me in high school. I was really close to my step-brother John, but still felt isolated and alone and Madonna symbolized someone who made it on her own, even though things were hard.

Throughout the years I have had many idols and of course that question has been asked of me in interviews and su…

Letter To My Sandwich

Dear Grilled Cheese Sandwich,

I just wanted to say thank you for being so yummy and keeping me full during these hard economic times. You are always faithfully there ready for lunch, or a snack, and sometimes breakfast. The way the cheese melts between your two slices of bread, make you irresistible to walk away from and impossible to ignore.

I love you completely with my whole heart. You were the only one who helped me through my college years when I was just new to the adult world. You helped me make the transition back into eating after quitting acting. You guided me through many a late night working in animation those first few years. Now you are back to help me survive through this hiatus.

I will always be grateful that you are there, cheap and easy. Your ability to keep me full for an entire week and yet not requiring that I empty the piggy-bank to do so means more than I can ever express. I believe that we will be seeing a lot of each other in the next few weeks until I start …

How to Be Healthy and Fit-Don't Listen To....

People often ask me about health & fitness because I was so involved in that industry for so many years and I still post about great programs, blogs, books, trainers, online classes, programs etc. (like Denise Austin-who was the first person I trained with in the late 80s to get certified, Michelle Bridges, Mari Winsor, Tracey Anderson and workouts like Barre3, The Bar Method, Zumba, etc).

Here is what I'm going to say.
1) Just because someone has starved themselves and lost a ton of weight, that does NOT make them an expert.
2) Just because someone runs or goes to the gym, that also doesn't make them an expert.
3) People who give sweeping advice like, 'be gluten free, be vegan, only eat 1000 calories a day' etc.. are not qualified to tell you, or anyone else how to be healthy.
4) Also, SKINNY does NOT equal healthy, this is a dangerous concept.

These are important things to remember.
If you want to lose weight or get healthier, please go to your fitness club and spe…
