12 of 12 for Sept06

Yo! It’s 12 of 12. And I had the most boring day ever (at least in photos–honestly, it was a pretty significant day in terms of the stuffs I can’t make public just yet). New to 12 of 12? Visit Chad’s site for the lowdown. Want to see my previous attempts, use that 12 of 12 category link on the left margin of the main page. Hope you did your own 12 of 12 and that you’ll share with the world! As for mine, let’s get to it (click any photo to enlarge).

8:15am: Salema is in bed with me, asking me to stay just a little bit longer. “Please,” she says. Sorry, dear. Time to rise. But thanks for shacking with me just the same.

10:45am: Good morning headshots! (Yes, I cobbled two photos.) Wow! There’s a bunch of headshots there, eh? (Believe me, that’s nothing. I have another crate or two in another part of the room. But it’s time to purge. Bless my intern, she’s helping make this happen. I must, finally, throw out headshots… and the criteria is getting brutal.)

10:45am: Happy casting binders! Seriously, I love love love being organized. It is totally worth the time and effort to get those deal memos, SAG contracts, audition schedules, cast lists, and sign-in sheets filed away in some decent manner. Ahhhh.

11:15am: Thwok loves it when the cubbies are empty (which is almost never). Notice the chew-marks on the file box. That’s what the kitties think of this particular batch of headshots. Rrrrr!

11:45am: My “A-List” actors. This is the file of actors I’ve cast or who have come soveryclose to being cast (like, we made the offer but the deal fell through or we had to do some sort of recasting for whatever reason). This is my go-to stack, when I need a quick list of “great actor” names. It’s more than just the “name actor” list I keep on the computer. It’s the actors I know will kick ass… every single time. These are my rockstars (and my hubby has created a Wiki database for me to use in cataloging them all, which has consumed most of my time today… but it’s so AWESOME).

11:55am: Said hubby leaves for gaming and acting class–during the latter of which he’ll have to do a comedic scene as an auto mechanic. He’s wearing a shirt that was given to us by the folks who fix the TicTac (bless its 17-year-old soul).

1:20pm: Don’t ever let anyone tell you that scheduling actors for prereads is an easy task. I think I’m going to start giving big, wet, sloppy kisses to the actors who get their audition notices, download their sides, confirm their auditions, and just show up and do the damn thing. I’m so OVER trying to reschedule people. (And only slightly less OVER a producer with daily add-ins… but she knows that. *snork* Dude… we now wait ’til callbacks. K?)

2pm: I’ve now ordered from PinkDot, so I’m up at the window when I hear a car door slam out front. Nope. Not them yet. But I do spy an example of what will MAKE me go postal someday. Seriously, if you ever hear of me going all gunz-blazing on people for no good reason, this will be why. If you have a large car, PARK IT SO THAT ANOTHER CAR CAN PARK NEARBY. Don’t be a jagoff who takes up TWO spots with your own damn self! You WILL feel my wrath.

2:12pm: Pink Dot has arrived. Life, she is good. Quick snack then back to work.

2:20pm: Just got some really good news that I can’t even talk about yet (even had to tell Keith to HUSH when I called him about it, b/c he does love to blab sometimes and he does have class tonight, which is a big audience for sharing). This is me unshowered and way too happy. Sooo lovely!

4:44pm: Making notes about the audition sides we’ll need for Friday’s prereads. Reviewing the schedule, trying not to get stressed out. Feeling good about the sessions. I have happy producers. Just got a fax from the director of another project. Busy Bon.

6:15pm: Time for dinner. California Cobb Salad minus the cheese and egg yolks. Yum! Dealing with some rescheduling issues that stress me out, but for a good reason.

7:24pm: This is my official BONUS photo: “BREAK” (and this is “How I take a…”). A GREAT night of TV. Nip/Tuck (thank you, east coast feed) feeds my porn fix, Big Brother is coming soon, and then there’s Real World/Road Rules Fresh Meat Challenge Reunion (which my TiVo missed yesterday, bastids). And now, as I upload, it’s The Minor Accomplishments of Jackie Woodman, which rocks. Nice cool glass of celebration and looking forward to tomorrow’s big-ass cool things!

See? Boring 12 of 12. Maybe next month will rock. Thanks again, Chad. It’s fun, even when it’s boring!
PS–Happy birthday to my superstar niece Tiffany! LOVE YOU!

    Whatever, we both know you will never be over me.
    (my camera died on pic 11 so i’m going to have to wait for a recharge and cheat a little…funny because pic 9 is of my busted cable box and pic 10 is of my busted light bulb – both caught just after they busted.)

    I love the happy Bon face.
    How freaking awesome was the Fresh Meat Reunion?

    Nice pics Bonnie! Man…I would have loved to have wine before my evening’s activity (class). Sadly it would probably just make it more impossible for me to stay awake.

    Thanks for being a part of it again!! I’m so happy you love your job! I saw those headshots and my blood pressure spiked! I don’t miss casting for a second.
    I miss Pink Dot. They don’t deliver in my home area and didn’t in Burbank when I worked at Central. One more reason to move to WeHo in the spring… THe BTL is a little piece of heaven.

    Great 12 of 12, Bon!!!! Yes, I missed it *sigh*….I’m being punished with having to sneeze and blow my nose every 10 seconds. Love the Bon face and hope you share your good news.
    BTW – I love your kitties!!! Mine chews on plastic bags….hee hee!

    Yay for another Georgian!
    Thanks for the comment on my 12 of 12. I really do have a cool job, don’t I?
    I always look forward to Halloween. It’s the only time of year that I can do gorey makeup and not have people think it’s. . . creepy.
    Your kitty is beautiful!
    (If only I could be so organized)

    Aww, thanks for your comment! 🙂 School is…well, there will be details on the typepad blog I’m listing here. I had my breakdown today…thankfully my mentor was there. 🙂 I loves her!!
    And yeah. I just like visiting and letting people know I’ve seen it. Makes it feel more…communal or something. 🙂

    OMG! Your cats are ADORABLE. Can I come kidnap them please!!! Salema reminds me of my old kitty Boo Boo (he was all black). Though if I brought home another cat I might be kicked out 🙂 We already have two!
    I think you and I would get along fabulously! I’m an oraganize freak too! 🙂 It makes me so happy to see everything just so and in it’s place! It’s the most wonderful thing!

  9. Avatar Abby September 13, 2006 at 6:38 pm

    Nice “break” picture hehe. I have a similar one in my 12 of 12. It’s nice just to relax and have a good drink on hand to watch some t.v., especially nip/tuck. 🙂

    Can I be the next to say that your cats are adorable?

  12. Avatar Pete September 14, 2006 at 4:24 am

    Nice pics, I hope that wine was well enjoyed! 🙂

    Hey! Thanks for the comment. I love how you ahve the cat like randomly in photos, its very cute. whats the big news though???

  14. Avatar Helen September 14, 2006 at 1:27 pm

    You do have a cool job, and I can vicariously life a day in the job when I see your 12 of 12!
    Would getting a combination printer/scanner/photocopier be of use? We had one at workand it was set up so that whenever you scanned, it saved the file as a .pdf in a folder named “Scanned Documents” on the company’s shared drive, so anyone could access it. If you scanned your stuff in (and it was as quick to scan as to photocopy, albeit marginally slower for colour) it takes a few seconds to rename, and you can eliminate the paper from your office then…
    I love office work and organising. You’d never believe it to see my bedroom, but at work I like it 😉
