So I’m at work, see... like--three, four weeks ago or something. And Andrew Wilder, the writer-- (and I am so not kissing his ass--this is just true-and I may be repeating myself here but- he is CUTE. Come to think of it, all of those writers in our office are cute. The writers assistants are all gorgeous in their our right too, I’m not kidding at all about this. Seriously, there’s a lot of cute mojo swimming around the land that is CriMi) Andrew-- he starts talking about the fans and such and I start talking about the blogging and the missing of the blogging and such and then we are both talking about the fans and the blogging....it was a perfect storm. And here I am.
Hello. My name is Kirsten. May I sometimes write stuff and send it semi-regularly to y’all who moderate this sweet fan site and can you please put it up when you want to?
I was gonna start blogging on my own or something but I got distracted. Does that happen to others besides me? Where you make a plan, sometimes like a BIG plan (one of mine as of late besides the “re-start CM/KV blog” has been to make this dress involving a t-shirt and ribbons and requires me to learn how to sew better.....)and then it just, sort of stops after the planning part because it all seems too daunting and you start getting all perfectionist-y....does that happen to you? Yeah, me too. But there is hope for us all, young friends, because here I am, doing something I planned on. Ribbon-y T-Shirt dress of Wonder, here I come.
So, we are in the middle of shooting a Simon Mirren script (again, GORGE. And SUCH a writer, which makes him all the handsomer, and his ACCENT. Do not even get me started on the accent. Yummy. I love my girlfriend but DAMN.) . Jeeze, I’m so teenage flirt queen today, what is up with me? ANYWAY. We are in the middle of an episode. I get to go away from my cave and be with the gang in this, which is always super delish. I have gotten a considerable number of script pages with Garcia’s name slathered upon them since our winter break. And the other six merry men and woman in the cast are as kind and strange and beautiful as ever (there must be something in the studio water....they are all so pretty and wonderful to me. Really though, it’s just the love. All the love, it makes people pretty. And I clearly have a lot of love coursing through me as I type....and caffeine, a lot of caffeine....DC time it is not:)
I have lines to learn right now. I’m doing a benefit for a wonderful organization called 826LA tonight. It’s a wonderful non-profit that supports students ages 6-18 with their writing skills in all kinds of great ways. I get to do a sketch with Laraine Newman from SNL AND Buck Henry. So. Awesome.
And here is me (note Evil Genius Grin) and my barnacle.
I will do this again. Soon. Really. Really. Really.
