Play dead?

Every once in a while I’m a stand-in in movies and TV shows, it’s a lot of fun and something I definitely enjoy. Since I was a kid I had this dream of becoming an actress, I took acting and drama classes and loved it. I still have that dream and we’ll see what happens with it.

This morning I got a call from a movie production company, they want me to be a stand-in in a TV series they’re filming in late June. It’s a bit of a more advanced stand-in role where I will be playing a dead person in a morgue and also filming a scene where I am being revived at a hospital. I got really excited about it, up until the point where they called me again later this afternoon and gave me the heads up that the morgue-scene is being filmed in an actual morgue…with real dead people around me. Um, okay then. I’m going to have to give this some serious thought, I don’t really know if I’m up to lying in a morgue surrounded by other dead people, I might panic. Especially since they informed me I will be closed in with the dead bodies for a while during taking. Eeek.

In other news! As I mentioned in my post this morning I was on my way out the door as I was writing. So here’s what else went down today:

9:55am Breakfast. Got up and had my usual breakfast, the last two slices of date bread with Tofutti vegan cream cheese, plain soy yoghurt with a kiwi and a tablespoon of ground flaxseed. And a cup of green tea with aloe vera hit the spot!

After letting my brekkie digest a bit I headed out for a powerwalk and run for an hour. When I got home I took a shower and got all dolled up, did some surfin’ on the net, blogging and blog-checkin’ and then headed out the door to go meet my brother in town to check out an exhibition he’s made along with his university class in a mall in town. It was very creative and cool. After checking that out we went to have a cup of coffee (I had a cup of rooibos tea) and talked for a good hour before he headed back to the mall. I didn’t get home until after 4pm so I figured I’d just wait a while and then made dinner.

5pm. Dinner. I crave this meal ya’ll, I loove it. This is my crack-meal, seriously! A flatbread with Tofutti vegan cream cheese, iceberg lettuce and cucumber topped with silken tofu that I mixed up with some herb salt and pepper-mix. In the bowl I had plain soy yoghurt with a peeled and chopped pink lady apple (le yum!) and I also made a protein shake with my prosoy-powder and soy milk.

Nothing good on TV on Thursdays but there were a couple of movies on so mom and I did some zapping and I had a little evening snack.

8:50pm Evening snack. A cup of Celestial Seasonings vanilla spice-something-or-other tea (I had the last bag of blueberry tea last night, t’was a sad, sad thing) and two carob covered rice crack(ers)!

Exercise today:
1h powerwalk/jog
100 crunches

I finished the second book in the Millenium-series by Stieg Larsson this morning (gaah, so exciting!) and started the third book now. It’s like over 700 pages and I’ve only read about 50 pages so far, but it’s already so nailbitingly good! So, as usual I’m about to crawl into bed and read a couple of more pages before hitting the lights and drifting off into dreamland.

Oh, and don’ t miss the fun giveaway over at A Year of Healthy Eating!

Hope you’ve had a fantastic Thursday!

Today, I’m leaving it up to you to ask me questions! Ask me anything in the comments section and I’ll answer the Q’s in my next post!
