Your Christmas (Or Other Preferred Holiday) Gift to Me

It's crunch time. The circus show I am creating with a couple of colleagues (This End Up) has been fundraising on and we're down to our final 6 days! A few quick updates on the show's progress:

Our cast is growing! We have been scouting out performers in various fields of expertise and are excited to showcase their skills in each performance. There are some incredibly talented people out there!

We've found a performance space! We have leased a space near downtown Los Angeles that will allow us to build the set we need, and make the colored powder mess the audience will enjoy. Since finding a space was one of our biggest challenges we are now very close to being able to set show dates!

The other large and important challenge we are facing is raising the funds for our set. We need equipment in order to make the show possible, and safe for everyone involved. This is where we really need your help!

Please take 5 minutes to visit our Hatchfund site, read about the show, and make a donation that is comfortable with your budget. Hatchfund is matching donations, and your donation is tax deductible! We are currently $2,145 away from our goal; that means we just need a little more than $350 donated per day before our campaign ends in order to receive the money.

It would mean the world to me, and we can't do it without you! Thank you for your help - we'll see you at the show soon!

Image Entertainment

I recently discovered that Google + has all of my photos that I have ever uploaded organized into albums in one place. It was quite surprising, but it was also fun to be able to quickly browse through all of the photos I had posted on this blog. Because of this discovery I also realized that my blog has become seriously boring image-wise. I used to post many pictures of my daily happenings, but I assume that died down around the time my laptop crashed (this one is a loaner) and I stopped taking pictures with my real camera because I had no where to upload them. I also don't take many photos with my phone anymore because I'm constantly running out of storage space. That being said, here are a few more recent photos I do have on my phone - enjoy!

I went to a Bob's Burgers themed Halloween party and dressed as Tina Belcher; I found many "family members" there. The best part about it  all - I threw my costume together in less than a day, after watching my very first episode of the show on October 30th. I did pretty darn well if I do say so myself; I think I was the most accurate Tina of the bunch, and I didn't spend a cent!

I love playing with nail polish! I'm not allowed to have it on my fingernails when I work at the coffee bean, but I like to do fun stuff with it when I have a few days off.

One of my favorite cartoons while growing up was the Animaniacs. I caught an episode on cable last week and laughed when I saw the sign on the crate - they're supporting our show!

I made pies for Thanksgiving - black bottomed banana cream pie! I never managed to get a picture of them after I decorated them.

I often pick up random jobs for some extra cash. This last weekend I helped out a friend of mine who is a tour manager for the Yo Gabba Gabba Christmas show by being a character handler for the VIP meet and greets. I was in charge of Muno - the red character. I saw a handful of famous people, like Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite) and his family. At the end up the day I even gave Biz Markie and his buddy/co-performer V a ride to the airport. Just a regular day in LA, right?
