i tell stories.

If you give me words, I'll trade them for some of my words!   The personal blog of the Khaleesi of Manhattan (khaleesiofmanhattan.tumblr.com) as she navigates the worlds of writing/performing/creating in Los Angeles and New York. This includes tales (tails?) of her children, who are not dragons, but Arya-Rat and Sansa-Rat.
STARKRATS backwards is STARKRATS.

In which Sookie Stackhouse is me, and I am Sookie Stackhouse, because those are absolutely the two most important fantasies of mine.

Clean bill of health!

I am FINALLY officially strep-free! So freaking happy about it.

Now I have the two auditions to look to and, having rehearsed my scene for the showcase today, am gonna take the rest of the afternoon and work on Daddy’s screenplay, then mine, then my book. For real. Today, I am getting stuff DONE.

I might take a nap first though.

Belated Traditional Pre-Audition Selfie Accidentally Looking Super Austere And Vampire-Like But I Didn’t Have Time to Get A Less Bizarre Picture Edition (should not have watched True Blood, Hemlock Grove, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer all within the same week).
I meant to go to the audition for which I had an appointment today and then meet Best Friend Roxy at an open call, but I ended up getting seen an HOUR later than my time (the casting team had never audition at Shetler before and didn’t know that we all hafta wait in a holding area … whoooops). So instead we just hung out afterwards. This was the first audition in a while that I really feel I knocked out of the park, so that’s awesome. Don’t know that I booked (odds are, as always, that I probably didn’t), but I’m still super happy :)
Yesterday, Roxy and I saw Rocky Broadway together. I wasn’t sure if she would like it, but she LOVED it, which was kind of melancholy for both of us since it’s closing very soon </3 Also, they took away our Andy Karl privileges at intermission and we got to see the understudy, so that was interesting (although my undying love for Andy’s immense talent made it hard to know that the last time I was seeing Rocky was only with 50% of his performance). Also, I may or may not have come across the yo-yo I was given at the end of the first 2011 workshop of Rocky and had an insane spontaneous hysterical weeping fit and ended up sobbing on the phone to my daddy for fifteen minutes but that’s another story nevermind anyway.
I got called in for two more auditions today, so at least I know I’ll have plenty to do coming up. I need to start trying to ration my writing time because I have too much (wonderful) stuff on my plate and am getting a little nuts trying to figure out how to accomplish it all. My plan for tomorrow is to work hard on a scene I’m doing for a showcase with my scene partner, clean my apartment, see the sun (Central Park trip, I’m thinkin’) and then set up some kind of schedule for the half-dozen or so things I’m supposed to be writing.
The day should have a good jumpstart since I have dance tomorrow at 9am and will definitely be having a delicious pineapple/mango/banana smoothie beforehand.
Wishing you all love, sunshine, and productivity!

Doing what I do best

Sitting on MY bench (it’s mine, my own, my precious) in my writing partner’s house, listening to him put music to my words while doing absolutely nothing after a full day of watching True Blood.

In my defense I was working on my own writing while watching the True Blood but that’s way less funny to say

FINALLY went grocery shopping! Protein &amp; Produce edition. Hoping that if I put better fuel in the engine my brain might run a bit better ❤️ Never tried the &#8220;savory spinach wraps&#8221; (?) I got for quesadilla making, but the Naturally Good Kosher cheddar cheese is 100% vegetarian (thank you, my people is the Jews). Plus, frozen fruit + 0% fat Fage yogurt to make a smoothie has always been a healthy and delicious breakfast. So yeah! That plus some lettuces and tomatoes for salad and we are good to go for some healthy yummy stuff.
