post script

My next assignment is to shoot photos of our house, our entire first floor, every window and every nook and cranny.  

I have tons more forms to fill out and oddly enough, they need my health history.  In all of the contracts, I'm referred to as "actor".  Years ago, that would've really put a smile on my face.  I always wanted to be an actor.  I told Rick this and he simply said, "Um, actress.  Get it right."  Good ol' Rick.   He is right, though, but I'm not gonna argue.

Mr. Producer-man told me that this is NOT a fast shoot.  I said that I thought they'd be in and out in 30 minutes ... and he laughed and said, it'll only look that way.  It's a slow shoot over 5 days and they are taking over my house.  I'm actually fine with it.  How could I not be?  Doesn't everyone dream of turning their house into a craft service table?  

Years and years ago, I went to a friend's house and watched them (a film crew) shoot a scene from a little movie called "Oklahoma City Dolls".  I was in awe.  IN. AWE.   And I dreamed of what it would be like to have a film crew IN YOUR HOUSE.

I will soon get to know.

The phone call ended, by the way, with Mr. Producer-man asking me what day I was born.  Um, today, I coyly added.  Yes, YOU ARE GIVING ME THIS AWESOME NEWS ON MY BIRTHDAY!!

Yes, that was truly a wonderful gift.  I don't know that I've ever had a more unique birthday gift.

And just for the record, I'm still so excited I can barely type.  Of course I've had a ton of coffee today, too.  I couldn't sleep last night!  Or the night before.  I may never sleep again.

Yeah, that would be good.

All I can see is this shoot, in my head.  I haven't even really considered what the end result is or will be.  I'm more enamored with the TV crew residing in my home for five days.

Oh, one more thing. I have to write her a letter.  Oh great.
