No Case of the Mondays!

Do you have a case of the Mondays?? I guess if I worked for the real version of this man in the middle of America with no prospects and nothing to look forward except being harassed about my missing TPS report, I might too-but thankfully I don't and so I am excited every week.

I love Mondays and really don't know why people are so down on them! Do you not have an awesome job that you love like I do? Did you settle for that steady paycheck instead of chasing your dream? Well then, you have no one to blame but yourself. Don't blame poor Monday.

Mondays are great because the week is just beginning and the possibilities are ENDLESS. You never know what could happen by Friday. For example. I am sending my book to Dublin today, so maybe by Friday I will have a publishing deal: that would be fast, but who knows? I am going out a couple nights this week, and so maybe by the end of the week I will have a new guy to hang out with? Maybe a job offer will come on Wed. Maybe someone will send my money. Clooney will finally read my script and buy it outright. I could win the lotto on Wed. Jake Gyllenhaal could fall madly in love with me. The point is, you never know what is going to happen!

I love Mondays because everything is less crowded from the post office to the bank to the suburban shopping malls and even Barnes & Noble. Everything is empty on Monday-thus making it easier for me to work.

In my job, the deadlines are always the weekend and or early Monday, so usually Monday is my rest day. Love it!!

Besides it just sounds happy...Monday. In my head it is yellow and sunny!


  1. LOVE Office Space! A couple weeks ago I told my mom I would be going to Office Space, but what I meant was Office Max.

    Mondays sucked for me when I was in school, but now that I'm out, I definitely don't mind them! And if I do score my dream jobs, like you said, I'll be looking forward to Mondays! Every day, in fact.

"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…
