LAPDdy's Day Epic Fail

Tonight, at night, in the dark, some guys were banging down the doors in my complex. They were nice enough, but still I didn't let them in. It's weird at night to be selling anything. They stood around in the hallways waiting for someone-it was suspicious. I called the rent a cop the community has on staff-I am sure he was at his usual sleep post-ugh, so I called the regular cops. That's right. LAPD. Now I watch Southland and the Closer, so I have a decent amount of respect for these folks, but come on, they have reached new lazy.
I told them some suspicious guys were banging on apartment doors and could they come check it out. They asked me if I was shot. WTF? Seriously? UGH, I said no just that they were making me uncomfortable since it was night and they wouldn't leave. They told me that they could do nothing until my apartment was broken into or I was shot and then they warned me not to take any action into my own hands unless I was fired upon first. Swear to the baby Jesus.
I asked them why they couldn't come by and check it out and they said that it was a very busy night for them. I then asked if I would have better luck if I slammed down a couple beers and got into my car, and she said, "Yes, but I wouldn't recommend it tonight, the rain is coming down pretty hard."

"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…
