5 Legitimate Fears

Even though I claim to be the Queen of Halloween, there are still plenty of things in this world that legitimately scare me.  I’m not talking about nuclear holocaust (that’s too real and depressing).  I’m talking about the classical “scary” things that I’m legitimately afraid of.  The mention of any of these things, or coming in contact with them–results in my immediate distress.  Because I love you guys so much I’m willing to expose myself.  Here are 5 legitimate fears I have.

In case you missed our unlimited amount of snarky tweets last night during the Presidential Debate, here’s a list of the best opinions we had to shelve out.  Overall, we feel like Obama swept the floor with Romney’s ass…but whose counting, really.

An Ode to Morticia Addams

Image

I’ve wanted to write this post for a long time. In fact, I did write half of it–and my computer suddenly shut down. So here I am starting over. *grunt *

I would like to talk about one of my favorite characters of all time, Morticia Addams. For those of you that know me, you know my deep affection for The Addams Family. I watched the TV show when I was a kid, and I can quote the 1991 film verbatim. To me, the Addams was a TV family that I actually wanted to be in.  As a girl, I identified with Wednesday Addams and often went to bed crossing my arms over my chest like she did in the film. For realz, ask my grandmother.

Happy Haunting

It’s been two years, but I am finally back! Oh thank you Jack Skelington Lord Pumpkin King for making this joyous holiday possible. Of course, I’m talking about Halloween and my favorite way to make money …haunting. Haunting isn’t just a part-time job. It’s a vocation. You dedicate your autumn to chainsaws and screams instead of pumpkin patches and cider. It’s not an easy job either. Haunting is like an abusive relationship, you get bruised, beaten up, sick, and sleep deprived– but you always come back for more because you love it so much!

It’s Remarkable What a Little Nudity Can Do

20120924-174034.jpg

I’m sure you’re all wondering how my night went last night. It wasn’t what I was expecting. To be honest… I really had no idea what to expect. Sure, I knew I would be sitting around naked a majority of the time, but I didn’t know how the audience would react, and I didn’t know how well I would read the passages. It was like I was standing at the edge of the Golden Gate Bridge with a half disintegrated bungee cord strapped around my ankles. Do I still take the leap? Or do I frantically rip the bungee cord off of my legs screaming “I just can’t do this!”

ImageThe idea of nudity and artistic expression has always been a touchy subject for me. I have a deep love for the horror genre. Sometimes, in order to perform in these films– nudity is expected of me. I was never comfortable with this, and it has probably resulted in the loss of many acting opportunities. The idea of bouncing my tits on camera for the sake of “boob criteria” in an indie horror film never seemed like a good idea to me. Likewise, nude photo shoots were completely out of the question. I don’t have the rock hard body required to pose tastefully in a nude photo. Plus, I think the photographer’s photoshopping skills need to be exceptional to make me look even close to appearing magazine ready.

No, nudity was never something I considered doing. I may have texted a topless photo in my day (fingers crossed that it will never re-surface) –but really, nudity is a quick way for a new actress to lose credibility incredibly fast. And like most females in their 20s.. my body issues plague my mind. I blame mainstream media for giving me the self-consciousness pointed directly at my mid section (but I do praise Christina Hendricks for helping me love my curves). I know I look best naked laying down in the dark. So the idea of prancing around naked for the sake of a performance isn’t something I could dive into right away.
