I’m Still Here, I Swear!

It’s been ages since I’ve updated here, but if you follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you’ve seen that I occasionally participate in social events. (Although I realize that this is a moot point if you subscribe to the “Pics Or It Didn’t Happen” train of thought.)

Quick highlights of what I’ve done:
1. I completed another stint as a PA for Miss USA, but if the title on my credentials is anything to go by, I was part of Field Production Audio (they meant to put assistant).
2. I’m a temporary EA for a company in Sherman Oaks. If you celebrated the Fourth of July at Warner Center Park in Woodland Hills, you saw my boss play with a fourteen piece band.
3. The place where I’m temping has some kitschy stuff. There’s a waterfall with fake salmon swimming upstream, a creepy-looking chimp band, and an underground bomb shelter. (I wish I was kidding about that last item.)
4. I participated in my first 5K. Since I haven’t been to the gym in over three months, I ran about 1/3 of it and walked the rest. It wasn’t a fancy event, so I don’t have an official time, but I managed to finish up in about 45 minutes.

There was a month between item number one and item number two where I got together with another unemployed friend and ate a shocking amount of LA-made queso and other comfort foods. (I’m still amazed that I didn’t have to start buying bigger pants or zit cream – it was that bad). We had a good excuse: two assistants who were looking for the next gig and were getting tired of hearing how great our resumes were.

There were queso fries before this burger.

While I can’t promise I’ll post on a regular basis, you can be sure this blog will be here for a while. It is, after all, one of the few ways I’m able to let you guys know I still exist.
