An assorted pack of my thoughts...

1. Went to meet the new principal of my daughter's school last night. She goes to a rather small private school and the are making some huge strides forward. While private schools have a reputation for being white and upper class, her school is working hard to defy that stereotype. Next year she will have a teacher from Serbia. I feel for him the first few weeks cause I'm sure she's gonna butcher his last name on a pretty frequent basis.

2. I go to the doctor today. It'll be the first time I've gone for a "checkup" in a gazillion years. I went without insurance for three years and I still act as if I'm uninsured. So I'm trying to learn to take care of myself and having a real doctor to call when I'm sick or something is a big step in the right direction.

3. I need a bio and pic for the White movie website. I've never had any need for even a semi-professional press kit. It's kinda exciting. The director has started to call on me again for little things every now and then (cause he swears I'm just the best) and it's a nice feeling. Plus I'm hoping to get to a film festival in Kentucky next month. I should get that experience at least once.

4. I'm completely convinced that my dogs are possessed. Or at least Lucy is and she talks poor Jake into doing bad stuff. Today I came home from dropping Hunt off at school to see that they had found the package of the little pads you put out to house train puppies and they had shredded them and spread them all over the house. I walked in the door scolding them and Lucy ran in circles around me while Jake first hid in the stairwell and then made sure he never made eye contact. His guilty conscience is so damn endearing.

5. My garden is kicking! I have so many plants and, for the most part, they're doing exceptionally well. And I got an email yesterday saying that my strawberries are finally coming in and, with them, are several dwarf citrus trees. And yet another blueberry bush. For those of you who haven't heard my blueberry rant before, Jake has eaten several baby blueberry bushes. They must be tasty.

What White movie are you talking about?

Paige said...

The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia. About Jesco White's family in Boone County. I was the associate producer.

Ok, two things. First - why would you get an email on how your plants are doing?

Second - when where in KY is the film fest?

I really want to know the email answer first... seems a little more strange.

Paige said...

LOL. I bought my plants online so, when I said I got an email saying they're coming in, I meant the company emailed to say they had been shipped.

As for the film fest, I think this is it but I'm not 100% sure.
